It's a bit of an odd take, considering that Artoria herself is considered a real living person in the Nasuverse. Other than that, I was bemused that you too fell for the old trap of thinking the term "Anglo-Saxon" meant "Angles and Saxons" but that's no matter.
    I do know that Anglo-Saxons and Angles and Saxons technically mean two different things, but my inner English student took over and compelled me to use a different term rather than repeating "Angles and Saxons" over and over and over, so I picked the next best thing.

    And, yeah, thanks to the way that the Nasuverse handles myths, basically saying that they're all true and all makes for a bunch of funky scenarios. It basically makes it impossible to turn a character that was actually alive but served as inspiration for a fictional character into a Servant. There wasn't really any way that I could sell "I inspired the tales of King Arthur" whilst keeping the Nasuverse canon that King Arthur actually existed. So instead I just chose to ignore that.

    One has to remember that there are everyday folks that do not believe in the mystic stuff from back then. So instead of treating arthur as real, they think he was fiction and attribute someone who was close enough as the inspiration. So one could spin it around and instead of saying "ambrose inspired king artur" to "ambrose is attributed with inspiring king artur"
    Something like a pseudo-proto arthur through an innocent monster effect born from the rationalization of mystics
    Behold! The works of a maniac!

    GREETINGS I BRING DESPAIR

    Name: Minotaurus
    Class: Berserker
    Origin: Greek Mythology
    Alignment: Chaotic Mad- (Sorrowful Mad)

    STR: C++
    END: C+
    AGI: B
    MAG: A
    LCK: D

    1st Ascension




    2nd Ascension




    3rd Ascencion




    The infamous monster born of Minos oath-breaking with Poseidon, Pasiphae was cursed with lust towards the Cretan Bull and Minos would be only known for being one of the greatest fools in the world. Despite this Minos took the monster in, not out of mercy, not out of fear, but to take advantage of its nature and pressure Athens into submission, eventually it would be killed by Theseus who using the beloved Ariadne's thread escaped the labyrinth and eloped with the Princess to faraway lands.

    Yet the one who claims to be Minotaurus is a perfect young maiden that can only be seen in stories. A kind hearted princess who understands and loves all of her people, a true idol to be cherished and symbol of the gods' love and acknowledgment, born solely to lead the people with great virtue and wisdom. However at the same time whenever battle is about to ensue or ill wishes are directed at her Minotaurus adorns heavy armor and beings to rampage, her shrieks and laughs spreading wide-fear and panic as akin to a curse

    "Compete for honor, for acknowledgment of the Gods, a peaceful placid soul will not be granted Elysium. True prosperity comes from the grinded down corpses and screams of the defeated. Red is victory, red is honor, save the obedient, kill the defiant, break the desirable"

    A dichotomy but the Kings of Greece were known for living between extremes, very much like the Gods they kneeled too.....but it should be obvious by now should it be not?

    The monster was slain
    The Evil King was thwarted
    The Hero saved the Princess
    They stood together despite hardship
    A true happy ending

    NOT

    Theseus is driven away from Crete, despite saving the people, slaying the monster and stopping the King's madness, all remained loyal to the hypocrite who defied and was punished by the gods. Hate festered and thus when Dionysus offered him passage to his homeland in exchange of Ariadne he eagerly agreed and abandoned her. As for Ariadne the princess who only wished for a end of bloodshed, to her father's madness, salvation for Asterios would receive nothing but unending pain for such wishes

    "Take away my heart (love). I want to be selfish (kill). I don't want to care (cherish). Drown me in eternal madness"

    Dionysus is madness, yet Dionysus also shows great capacity of love. Answering to his bride's wishes she is repurposed and born anew. The non-human traits within her blood are enhanced and brought to the fore, the blood of Zeus (Minos) and Helios and Perse (Pasiphae), a destruction engine shackled to Dionysus' divinity and made a extension

    Skills

    Mad Enhancement (EX): Maximum power is granted, yet reason is robbed. Speech is possible, negotiating is possible, the Princess yet remains, but it's just habit and repetition, no investment of emotions or any true understanding is granted. However should she be reminded of Theseus' once shining heroism, the tragedy of Asterios, the despair of Pasiphae and the tyranny of Minos she will immediately hone upon the target to eliminate the oddity and alleviate her mind. A eternal drunken haze, yet if one is to survive the 'intervention' the princess will regain her sanity and the skill will be sealed. A trial upon the master, Dionysus does not 'share' easily after all even if he acknowledges humans are best to stay with humans

    Personal Skills
    Bassareus (A++): A surname of Dionysus, derived from bassara or bassaris, the long robe which the god himself and the Maenads used to wear in Thrace. For Ariadne is 'garbed' with Minotaurus and is granted all the aptitude and skills to become an Anti-Human menace, that is a blood-drenched monster that devours the weak, laughs at the strong. The Crown of Power (Tyranny) so that she will never be strung along again or so this form says. Perhaps Ariadne simply doesn't want to remember being Ariadne

    Fated Thread (B): The guidance that surpassed the mystery of Daedalus Labyrinth and as long as it exists so will this. Originally a noble phantasm that could be shared between allies so that all would find their objectives without fail, it has become a instinct that makes Ariadne able to find her way and enemies by sheer instinct alone. Illusions, presence concealment, shapeshifting and similar hiding tactics of equal and lesser ranking will fail

    Labrys of the Abyss (A Rank): The original two-bladed axe which is a symbol and the root of the word labyrinth. As the rightful princess taking the name and power of Asterios this skill has been enhanced to the max. A blade-key that summons the power in her blood and by using large amounts of magical energy pieces of the Labyrinth can be summoned to be used as shields, battering rams, gauntlets and many others, twisting and changing the Labyrinth won't allow its victim (purpose) to ever see the light again, a protection and punishment of the highest ranking in one package


    Noble Phantasm

    Chaos Labyrinthos: Horn of Chaos
    Rank B
    Anti-City
    A Bullroarer used in the rituals of Dionysian Mysteries. The escalating sounds propagates and enhances the madness within Ariadnes, the Minotaurus takes the stage and from within her madness breaks out and spread throughout the world, spreading like a plague those afflicted with it suffer as the victims of the Minotaur did, thirst, starvation, panic, paranoia, all sink down unto the target's soul and as the despair escalates Minotaurus is granted further boosts, more and more victims shall die and her name and curse shall spread until a grand hero will appear to defeat (killsaveslaughter), a enemy (prince) who will have eyes for her and only her

    Caster of the Golden Dream
    Faker of the Golden Desire

    Identity:
    Jay Gatsby/James Gatz

    Alignment: Balanced Neutral

    Armament(s): Fists, Magical Energy release

    Summoning Catalyst: An assortment of American-centric catalysts heaped together, with his book among them. His book alone would also work if he is specifically desired, but upon the presence of multiple, he gains priority

    History: The Titular character in F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby, born James Gatz to a poor family in the American Midwest, he adopted the identity of Jay Gatsby upon becoming the protégé of a copper tycoon. When his mentor died, Gatsby was swindled out of the inheritance bequeathed to him by the man's mistress, and thusly joined the military during WW1, achieving the rank of Major. However, it was in his time serving that he would meet one Daisy Fay- soon to be Daisy Buchanan, the woman that would absolutely enrapture his desire. He was in love- and whilst studying at Oxford, when he received news that she had married wealthy businessman Tom Buchanan, he immediately moved back to the states, in a bid to become wealthy and win her heart.

    After amassing a fortune off of what was most likely bootlegging throughout the beginning of the jazz age, Gatsby once again was reborn, this time keeping his name, as a self-made millionaire. He bought a grand mansion across the bay from the Buchanans, and began to throw incredibly lavish parties, like a new-age Gilgamesh, in order to one day hopefully attract Daisy to come on by so he could see her again. And with some help from Daisy's cousin, and perhaps the only true friend in his life, Nick Caraway, he eventually did. As he tried to win her affections, convince her to leave Tom to live a life with him, things soured, eventually leading to a confrontation where Tom accused him of trying to steal his wife away from him, and Gatsby placing an ultimatum on Daisy to choose... and she couldn't. Taking Gatsby's car, she ended up hitting and killing Tom's mistress, who's husband George, upon learning it was Gatsby's car, went to his manor the next day and shot him.

    Despite being an incredible host, socialite, and figure of influence, only three people attended Gatsby's Funeral: His father, Nick, and an unnamed guest of his parties with owlish eyes.

    Personality: An amicable extrovert with arrogance and ambition, Gatsby thinks, and knows, he's hot shit. He moves with an almost performative swagger, like he's in a music video, physically sparkling slightly with a little pinch of his brand of magecraft. Yet despite it al... he's rather pleasant, when you get him to sit down and simply talk with him. It's something someone who specifically built himself up as a host and socialite has to be- he's really an utter delight. The gleam, the smolder, it fades to a tasteful golden shine- you see under the hood of the expensive car, and see the finely tuned engine, the mechanisms and mind of someone who actually did build himself from nothing.
    However, with that knowledge, also comes fear. The fear and doubt, knowing in the past that his efforts amounted to nothing, that he never achieved the true love or happiness... it eats at him. The fact that he's faking being a grand man of millions of dollars, and the tale of that man has entered him into the throne of heroes, he secretly feels as if he shouldn't have manifested, the proof of his actual class designation, Faker, being a smoking gun in his mind
    Additionally, as will be detailed in his second noble phantasm, the fact that something so important as his death is unknowable to him, he finds deeply worrying.

    He constantly refers to everyone as "Old sport", regardless of familiarity

    Height: 183 cm
    Weight: 173 lbs
    Appearance:


    Servant Parameters:
    Str: E
    End: D
    Agi: E
    Mana: C+
    Luck: E

    Class Skills:
    Camouflage B: A Skill that allows a Servant to disguise their Class and parameters.

    Territory Creation A: A Caster-class Skill. It is the Skill to build a special terrain that is advantageous to oneself as a magus, such as for the purpose of collecting mana. For Gatsby specifically, he will establish a grand estate of which to hold lavish parties out of, as he did expertly for multiple years in his tale. They are open-invitation, but will naturally hide the area's magical aspects to those who do not already know of magecraft.

    Personal Skills:
    Golden Rule A-: A Skill that refers to the measurement of one's fortune to acquire wealth. Gatsby possesses it at this rank due to the incredible quantity and quality of celebrations he threw, while still seeming to have an unfathomable amount of money behind him. Such wealth was enough to strike fear of replacement into his old money adversaries in the novel, meaning it would have no doubt been a vast sum. But because as many things about his wealth were left unknown to the narrator and protagonist, Nick, it receives a negative modifier.

    The Presence of Splendor D: While Gatsby was not a mage in life, this skill allows the power of the unknowable wealth he possesses to manifest as the projection of magical energy. In the form of a golden light, Gatsby can unleash it in a variety of blasts, using his experience as a soldier to use them effectively.

    The Green Light of Desire EX: The manifestation of Gatsby's supreme will to reinvent and present himself as something truly great by comparing himself to others. Using this skill, Gatsby can copy and learn a skill from any opponent he faces, starting at two ranks under what the original owner possessed it at. He will also rank up his three physical parameters upon doing so for the first time. Subsequent confrontations will allow him to rank the skill up by a single rank (up to the originally possessed rank), but Gatsby cannot claim more than one skill from each servant. With the skill claimed, comes any knowledge, or biological or magical change needed to utilize it effectively.

    Noble Phantasm(s):
    Roll's Royce: D
    A poor excuse for a noble phantasm, Gatsby can summon his car, a yellow 1928 Rolls-Royce 40. It doesn't seem to need gas, and is supernaturally durable, but, it's ultimately just a car.

    The End and Memory of a Dream: EX
    A passive noble phantasm that summons two phantom spirits upon two specific events occurring
    Upon talking the life of, or aiding in death of another servant, a master, or even a bystander- George B Wilson, Gatsby's killer, will manifest 24 hours after, and attempt to repeat the process. He comes with a revolver that cannot misfire, with a single bullet in the chamber, and his aim will always be directly at Gatsby's heart. While he cannot be touched, he will fade upon firing that shot- of which if Gatsby survives, he will manifest 24 hours later and attempt it again, until it works and he kills him, or Gatsby demanifests. George can also possess people holding pistols, lasting until the chamber or clip is emptied. Very notably, Gatsby DOES NOT REMEMBER how he died, cannot be told or shown how he has died (it will be replaced with static, or static noise), and does not know who killed him. If he survives the first attempt on his life, he will at least know it is a spirit with a gun trying to kill him. However, between manifestations, he will forget this fact.
    Upon Gatsby's Death/Demanifestation- Nick Caraway, Gatsby's only friend, and the one who records his story (as well as is the protagonist of the novel), will independently manifest to Gatsby's master for a day. Like George, he cannot be touched, but he will leave behind a memoir depicting Gatsby's time while summoned, with posthumous anecdotes from the servant in the throne. A final record of his time, so you will perhaps remember him.

    Design Notes:
    - Gatsby is yet another one of my Fighting Game servants, this time serving the gameplay archetype of a gimmick character. The idea is that he possesses an incomplete moveset, his Quarter-circle back command not doing anything. Upon reaching the second round, he would be presented with a menu before the round starts allowing him to choose one of three attacks to assign to it.
    - I found out while researching him, that a lot of literary analysis denotes him as being a sort of false profit for the american dream (hence his title and second NP), something I found rather interesting. That tied in with the fact that he effectively killed James Gatz to live as Jay Gatsby, made me want to make him a pretender, though I eventually went with Faker because it fit better with what I was doing.
    - Visually, you of course have him being described as a tall, handsome man, who notably owned a pink suit (which in the story was used to symbolize his essence of being of "new money", and spending on things that would normally be considered frivolous at the time, like a fucking pink suit), so I did all that, as it worked visually. The two things of note are his skin color, and glasses. In the novel, he has no specified ethnicity, though there are rumors of him being related to the german kaiser, and Fitzgerald's model for him was a man of german descent. However, to snag a quote from wikipedia real quick, "As the embodiment of "latest America", Gatsby's rise triggers status anxieties typical of the 1920s era, involving xenophobia and anti-immigrant sentiment.", I wanted to portray him as someone of mixed descent, as to be more representative of all us different people still striving for the more and more impossible american dream, and how those sentiments have evolved over time.
    The glasses are a nod to the green light in the novel with their tinted lenses, the naming source of his most important skill. In the novel, it shines across the bay near the Buchanan residence, and symbolizes what he strives for, but can never have. Them being glasses means he sees the world through this light of desire, and it's another nod to the theme of vision and perspective prevalent in the story.

    That Pasiphae should have been Rider or Lancer (Labrys) if you ask me for how sane she is

    When you think Berserker Pasiphae you think coco loco Pasiphae that convinced Daedalus that her fucking the Cretan Bull was a totally legit good move that would have no consequences. Give her some evil charisma skill because Daedalus is a psychotic nerd and react with such horror she remains silent and despairing, just wasting away until the end of her life. Really turn up the horror of the situation if you ask me

    Thanks for the compliments. I find it funny how Fate insists Herakles and Theseus are the Supermen of Greece, super good guys strong and smart that have never done any wrong yet they confirmed Theseus killing and raping the amazons as a thing and also using his favor by Poseidon to kill Hippolytus (his son) without ever confirming anything just because he found a letter claiming Hippo did it

    Standing in the alcove that served as the entrance to the arena for the first round of the festival, Varick paced, playing with his earrings as he nervously played a pen, spinning it between his fingers. All the while, Lancer sat comfortably on one of the slightly overstuffed couches. His spear rested atop his lap as he laughed at the movie that was being projected at the blank wall across from him. A few, small bobble head figures were scattered around him.

    While the two little astronauts were watching along, a glowing blue dragon girl who looked like a little robotic mummy with gold and green highlighting were playing a board game and a bubbling mass of chaos was chasing a few more tiny mechanical figures.

    “How are you so calm about this? It’s a big event on the line here man” Stated Varrick, once more coming to sit back down next to his servant, once more completing a cycle he’d done at least a dozen times now. The man in the astronaut suit simply shrugged, continuing to watch the movie.

    “Going to be honest, it’s a weird combination of the fact I really want to finish everything NGE has to offer before we start, and a need to keep myself distracted. Stressing isn’t going to help us V.” Responded the American, allowing the projector to flicker off.

    “Easy for you to say, going to space probably numbed you a bit to all of this.” Sniped the purple haired mage as he once more rose to begin pacing.

    “And all the fights we’ve been in before haven’t done the same for you?” Shot back the astronaut as he grabbed his helmet, choosing to now stand. The little figures scrambled to get onto the figure as he did, disappearing into non-existent gaps in the armour. Blue eyes met grey as the master and servant looked at each other.

    Varrick tried to respond, before finding he didn’t have a good comeback. Deciding to let it rest, he continued to pace. It wasn’t long before a buzz notified both it was time to take the field. Both men stiffened, grabbing assorted kit before beginning to head onto the field. “Stay safe out there, you got me? There’s some monsters in the tournament.”

    The blond smiled as he put on his helmet, locking into place while a barrier caused light to refract oddly for a moment before returning to normal. Using his spear to point at the moon above, Varrick was certain his servant was smirking under that helmet. “Remember V, they’ve got to reach me before they can hurt me. Good luck.”

    Appearance:

    As he rarely takes off his suit, it is worth describing Neil. He is a Caucasian man in his late thirties with a strong build underneath his suit. His hair is light blond and he has light blue eyes. Neil has no facial scars, and so still possesses the facial structure he had in life.

    Lore

    Neil Armstrong has become the individual with the single greatest association to space and the moon in the modern western world. However, this was not always the case. His story started pretty simply, as a young lad he moved often due to his fathers job as a state auditor. Yet, it was during this time of constant moving that he first gained his love of flying at the age of two when his father took him to the Cleveland Air Races. It would go so far that Armstrong would be able to fly before he had a drivers licence.

    He would go on to use that skill to his advantage, as he enlisted in the Navy under a program that would include two years of training and a year of service in exchange for paying his tuition costs. Whilst this would put his studies at Purdue on pause, it began a long term military connection. Through this, he would come to see action in the Korean war. While there are few events during this period worth note, one mission where Neil would lose part of the wing of his plane to a cable left as a booby trap would go on to get many different retellings.

    After being released from duty and entering the navy reserve, Armstrong would go on to finish his studies at Purdue. Whilst doing so, he would help put on a few productions and find the love of his life. Leaving with a Bachelors in Aeronautical Engineering, he would go on to gain his Masters in USC and many honorary doctorates later in life.

    Post university, Armstrong would become a test pilot with the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics or NACA. During his service here, he would pilot over two hundred different forms of aircraft, being the first to fly quite a few of them. He would also become a father, although he would tragically lose his second child.

    Neil would also gain a number of interesting anecdotes from this time, such as when he and his co-pilot had to descend a Boeing B-29 Superfortress 30,000 ft with only one functioning engine, or when he would controlled crash a plane, and the two other pilots sent to pick him up would subsequently crash, forcing their base to send out a car instead of another plane.

    When NACA was absorbed into the newly founded NASA, Neil would stay with the new organisation. While initially selected for the first man in space program, that initiative would be dissolved when its funding was cancelled. Through a bit of luck, he would later be selected as part of the new nine and participate in the Gemini program.

    He participated in Gemini 5, 8 and 11, although only being the primary crew in Gemini 8. During Gemini 8, Armstrong would become the first American Civilian in space. Although the mission was not fully successful, it was decided that none of the astronauts participating in the mission were at fault.

    Armstrong would go on to participate in Apollo 8 and, most famously, Apollo 11. Selected as commander, Armstrong would be the one to first set foot on the moon. While no part of the process was simple or easy, Neil would eventually find himself on the celestial body. Committing the first moon walk, Neil would give the historic phrase: That's one small step for [a] man, one giant leap for mankind. A phrase that is still argued about if he misspoke to this day.

    Upon returning to earth, Armstrong would go on to say that he had no intention of ever returning to space. This was made not because he had not enjoyed the experience, but in truth because he saw the praise that was awarded to him above all others, even his fellow astronauts. Reluctantly taking up the mantle of American hero, he decided to not deprive anyone else of their credit, as he knew any mission he was a part of, he would become the main focus.

    Unlike some of his fellows, he chose not to pursue a political career, opting instead to become a teacher and later participate in a number of business ventures. While many rumors' about him began to circulate, ranging from him being a recluse, to him having converted to Islam after hearing the call to prayer on the moon, Armstrong would not let any of this affect him, living his life with those he cared for.

    Finally, Neil would die in 2012 after complications arose post a bypass surgery. In his place, he would leave a lasting legacy and a sadness in many, especially the friends and family he left behind.

    A healthy combination of luck and skill, the apt recipe for a hero, no? Too much luck, and nothing feels earned, and too much skill leaves the hero unsympathetic. You’ve struck a rare middle ground Neil, remember that.


    Personality

    For a man whose story makes him a larger than life figure, Neil lives up to this in person. Confidant and outgoing, Neil reacts with bold certainty in the face of any challenge he needs to overcome. While he never goes so far as to be condescending or demeaning to others, he is very forthcoming with his accomplishments and will readily challenge others to try and repeat what he’s done. In all, he can be described as one who fits the ‘self assured hero archetype.’

    At least, that is what he tries to be.

    In truth, while Neil is no introvert, he is a bit more reserved than the outward acts he shows. In truth, he is a warm, caring man who tries his best to bring everyone up to an equal footing as him. Neil is not arrogant or self-centred, and will often feel doubt about his own abilities. However, this quickly disappears when he works with others, as he has no doubts about the capability of humans working together.

    His first instinct when given praise would be to acknowledge but amend to it being a group effort. While using his false persona, he usually tries to stifle this a bit more than normal, being a bit more accepting while remaining humble.

    While he chose not to return to space in life, he still possesses a love for the stars, one that has manifested in a functional obsession with SciFi. Whenever possible, one will find Neil consuming some amount of science fiction, although he ensures that it never makes him a burden to others, although that just means he’ll be watching on internal screens while working.

    Above all else, Neil believes in the potential of humanity, with an unshakable faith that humans, while working together, can accomplish anything, including recreating the worlds seen in the media he loves. He will often make predictions of the future that bear stark resemblance to various different franchises being combined. Whether these predictions are jokes or not, he won’t say.

    Hey.(They are.)

    Shush you, it’s no fun if you tell them.

    When it comes to his master, Neil treats them like superior officers while in combat or important situations, and a friend when the situation is more relaxed. This translates to him following orders with little argument unless they are blatantly incorrect decisions for the situation. Examples would be attacking civilians for a distraction or harming opponents more than required. When relaxed, he’ll show his calmer, more natural side to his master and others he considers friends, letting go of the tiring mask.

    So, why the whole act? You said you’d explain it to me eventually. It doesn’t really gain you anything, so why waste the effort?

    Huh, I did say I would, no? It’s got a bit to do with my wish, so I may as well tell you both. You know how I’m always so certain that, when we work with a few others, we’ll never fail?

    Yeah, it’s always been a bit of a morale boost, even if Red and Igodo would say it didn’t help at all against Gatekeeper.

    Never going to let me forget that one, are ya? Well, I’m certain of the same thing when it comes to humanity’s future. I joke around, but I am certain that our place is among the stars. And we’ll get there, no matter what anyone says. All I want is to be able to see the day all of humanity sails through the sea of stars.

    It’s touching, but then why the act?

    Motivation. I don’t like it, but I’m seen as a symbol of space travel. So, who better to push it onward and get that fire burning?
    Relationships

    Paul Bunyan: …why is she a… well she? I grew up here with so many tales about her that it’s just a little surprising. Summoning weirdness? Alright then.

    Astolfo: You went to the moon on a hippogriff? How the hell does that work?

    Altera: So, she’s from space? Well, I think I’ve found my negative in the mirror verse.

    Otaku Servants: …okay I take all the offence that you describe me with the same word you use for them.




    Class Skills

    Magic Resistance: C+
    The class skill of the lancer class, representing the heroes ability to shrug off outside magical effects. While Neil is a modern person, and so has had no real contact with mystery, as his Lancer form is the crystallisation of Neil as the man on the moon, he brings with him a portion of the mystery that his journey would strip from the celestial body. This mystery allows him to shrug off magecraft with a chant of two verses or below.

    However, due to that element which is found in the void of space that resides opposite to the True Ether of the past, magecraft that was formed during that time is resisted as if Neil’s rank of this skill was one higher.

    So, yeah, the mystery kind of… followed me here. It’s kinda like a puppy that just wants to follow me home.

    Lancer… the millennium of mystery that surrounds the celestial body that orbits our planet is not a simple lost puppy!

    You're telling me! You should see my other form! I’ve got the full grown hellhound then!

    NEIL!

    Independent Action: C
    Independent Action, the ability to make action without the support of one’s master. While Neil, as a lancer, would not usually have access to this skill, he does. This is because the nature of his famous voyage through the stars truly separated him from any master. Whilst on the journey, none could assist him and his companions, they were truly self reliant.

    This rank grants Neil the ability to stay in the world for one day without a master. This is once more due to his strong connection to the moon, as it is because of the time he spent on the moon, a little under a day, that he has this skill at the existing rank.

    What was it like up there?

    Beautiful, but lonely. I had Buzz, and Michael was… close enough. But everyone else? The other astronauts, NASA, the world? So, so far away. I hope to be there when we all stand on it together. That sight isn’t meant for so few eyes.

    We’ll get there. We will make sure of that.

    Hey! (He’s right!)

    Yes we will. Thanks guys.


    Personal Skills

    Mind’s Eye(True): B
    A skill that represents a heightened ability for observation possessed by its user. It is capable of greatly improving the chance of winning if even a one percent chance exists, simply by using the information one gains to avoid dangers that would lead to defeat. It is no innate talent, but one achieved through rigorous training and trial and error. At this rank, it shows that one is capable of measured and calm analysis of battlefield conditions even while in danger, allowing for an appropriate course of action to be found.

    Whilst Neil has a great history with quickly learning new aircraft and adapting to find the best course of action during crisis through his logical mind, he is not the only reason for this skill. In truth, it is this, and the team of spirits within his armour that are able to break down the factors affecting the situation to give a calculated response, which is applied by Neil. Truly, the team that managed to craft a successful rocket despite the odds stacked against them deserve recognition for this skill.

    Due to Neil’s inexperience with a spear, he uses this skill to show him how best to use it. However, due to the scientific backgrounds of nearly all involved, his execution is efficient and mechanical, looking more like a perfect transcription from a training text than actual battlefield adaptation.

    Hey, hey hey. Hey.(Well, here’s the combat data for these guys. We’ll give you some more updates as we get more. It’ll be audio unless you tell us otherwise. No good reason to obstruct your vision)

    Got it. Keep the readouts standard, this isn’t going to be an easy one, so the smoother I can interpret, the better this goes for us.

    Pioneer of the Stars: EX
    A skill that changes an endeavour from impossible, to achievable, although it does not remove the need for effort. Granted to those who became turning points in human history, Neil gains it from literally pioneering the stars. Specifically, by being the first man to reach, and walk upon, another celestial body through only that which agreed with the common sense of man, he changed the impossible task of walking alien worlds, to a possible endeavor.

    You okay Neil?

    Yeah, just… divided. The skills are great and all, but… I was just a part of the puzzle, not the whole picture. Yet I’m the bit that gets the acknowledgment.

    Well, there with you, so in a way, they’ve got it to. Right?

    Yeah… right.

    Protection of the Ends of the World(Cosmos): A
    A skill that denotes a connection to both the greater universe beyond earth, and through that, the tower that shines with the light of the ends of the world. Through the Star Spangled Spear, Neil expanded the human idea of the end of their world. He showed that humans could walk on other celestial bodies in the modern world.

    Due to this, Neil possesses this skill. Through it, he gains a protecting power that works to keep him active. This power takes the form of a boost to his mana stat and the strength of his noble phantasms. It is especially effective concerning the Star Spangled Spear, considering one of its major abilities draws from its connection to the light of that tower.

    Going to be honest, nobody on the crew, or I, have enough data to give any explanation on this thing. It's as confusing as Evangelion’s timeline.

    Mana Burst(Meteor): C
    A strange variation of the mana burst skill that Neil possesses. Instead of any expulsion of energy, Neil unleashes shards of rock moving at high fractions of the speed of light. Due to this, these meteor’s will cause an ignition of the atmosphere in their wake. This produces the main effect of this skill, that being lances of heat that propagate from Neil. However, if the enemy is exceedingly close, the meteor will hit before fully burning up, delivering a somewhat powerful kinetic strike.

    Its rank is low not due to a lack of strength, as each meteor is actually quite dangerous, but due to its ridiculously low efficiency, making it a rarely relied upon tactic used at close range to reduce missed shots.

    Well, I ain’t no Nono, but I’ve got some lasers that pack a punch!

    We both know that these don’t even qualify as something remotely close to being a laser beam! There is literally zero radiation involved in the process.

    Yes, yes. It’s a function of friction interacting with a projectile moving at high speed, causing kinetic energy to be lost as heat and causing minor atmospheric ignition, but let me have this! Space man gotta have lasers!

    It’s just… wouldn’t a Mass Effect reference make more sense than a Diebuster one? Their main weapons used essentially the same principles as the skill, no?

    …FUCK!

    Hey!?(You actually listen to him when he goes on his scifi rants!?)


    Noble Phantasm
    The Men Who Stand Amongst the Stars
    Apollo 11

    Anti-Unit(Self): B
    Range: Self
    Max Number of Targets: 1

    A conceptual Noble Phantasm that provides a very physical defense. Apollo 11 is the very suit that Neil wears, the crystallization of the program having taken the place of the space suit he wore in life. It is a constantly active Phantasm that confers two abilities on its owner, although a third is kind of existent due to a quirk of Neil’s views affecting its manifestation.

    Its first effect is the act of bolstering Neil’s parameters to those shown. Due to Neil being from the modern age and having limited physical feats, he would usually have physical parameters that reflect that, being incredibly low for one of his classes. However, this phantasm replaces those stats with that of the spacecraft he used to move through space, giving him great strength and endurance, and heightened agility, although not as high as it could be as it confers the stats of the craft whilst near the moon. If this were ever to be lost, the affected stats would become what they used to be, a scattering of D and E ranks. It also grants Neil a form of flight, through use of the ship's thrusters to create lift.

    Its second ability is its greater strength. Making physical the distance between the earth and moon as a barrier around the suit, Neil achieves a near immunity from purely physical attacks. Although, it doesn't break down this simply. To be exact, the barrier makes it so an attack must be able to reach the moon to reach him, which greatly hinders physical strikes, as they would have to achieve the ability to exit the atmosphere and retain enough energy to do damage by the time they reach him. Energy attacks are also weakened, but nowhere near as much, since as energy they can easily move through the distance, with maybe a ranks worth of energy loss.

    However, this barrier is not without its weaknesses. Conceptual attacks that target Neil can easily bypass it, as its defence is purely physical. Therefore, an attack like Gae Bulg's heart seeking thrust would be unaffected, whereas its anti-army mode would be nullified. It also displays this impotence in the face of space-time warping effects. Furthermore, a work around to the physical nullification exists, as while he is immune to strikes, using maneuvers like throws still works, as the barrier will stop him from hitting the ground, but not the damage of being rapidly accelerated and decelerated. For example, punching him would do nothing, whereas throwing him would work. And finally, the armor is only semi effective against environmental effects, as while being submerged in lava or freezing cold would not be immediately effective, with enough exposure over a time, it would eventually reach him and take effect.

    It is to be noted that the barrier exists only where the suit is covering, so if, for example, Neil were to take his helmet off, his head would not have the protective effect of the barrier until he puts it back on.

    Finally, the third ability has no real effect, but it is notable. This turns the inside of his suit, that being the inside area between the outer and inner layers and not inside as in where Neil's body is, into a pocket dimension. Whilst this pocket dimension gives no benefits, it does contain the phantoms of all those who worked on the Apollo 11 mission as entities similar to the spirit crewman of anthropomorphized ships shown in a certain series. These phantoms take a number of forms, such as normal humans in spacesuits for the other astronauts, mechanical beings for the engineers, data spirits for the NASA control team, and various alien forms for the scientists. All have the proportions of a funko pop unless they chose to appear differently.

    This is developed thanks to Neil’s mind set that his accomplishments are not his alone, but that of all that contributed to it. So, why should only he have the glory as a heroic spirit?

    So… fairies. After all we've seen with those fucks, you still call them… fairies.

    Hey! Hey hey hey, hey! (Yeah! It’s creepy being referred to by the same name, especially after the fight with that fucking Gatekeper!)

    Oi, don't gang up on me! They're just so similar to the little crew of the kanmusu!

    I thought you were a space Otaku!

    Rabbit holes are rabbit holes!

    Hey! Hey! (And you’ve watched all of Azur Lane, why?)

    Shut up Buzz!



    Extension Into the Final Frontier
    Star Spangled Spear

    Anti-Fortress: A+
    Range: 1~70
    Max Number of Targets: 450

    The weapon that represents the flag placed on the moon by Neil in life, and the Phantasm that qualifies him for this class. Its composition uses the original flap as its bases, and so possesses a trait of extension connected to the flag's status as symbolising the extension of humanity's common sense, and builds upon it by crystallising the environment that has affected it for decades. This means the bulk of the spear is made of electromagnetic radiation, which carries a portion of the power of the light of the tower at the ends of the world, and space dust, or grain. Due to this, the spear gives off an odd visual effect of producing an ethereal glow, with brighter points of stardust.

    This grants upon the spear a very useful trait, even when its true name is not released. This trait is a scaling damage output the greater one's separation of humanity's common sense, or mystery, and stardust. However, it does this in different ways. With mystery, the light gains more power, imbuing the spear with a greater ability to pierce. In contrast, the grain interacts with divinity the same way matter and antimatter does. Destructively, with a great amount of energy given out all the while.

    By partially releasing the Phantasm, Neil can bring its property of extension to the surface. This can be used to cause things it is connected to to lance out at where the spear is pointing. Lancer mainly uses this to extend his barrier into a pillar that violently pushes things away, piercing through things with a low durability, and pushing back those with high durability.

    Yet, this is not the true use of the Phantasm. Its true name release requires planting the spear into the ground and turning the extension property inwards. Doing so has a small delay, before the light and grain erupt outwards, annihilating everything within its spherical range of effect. All the while still having its anti-mystery and anti-divinity effects.

    Why is it that spear?

    Well, all my respect to the Saint of Orleans, but I'm already at a disadvantage with a lance, I'm not taking an even bigger one by wielding a flag. Plus, it's used to being surrounded by space stuff, so it was easy to use that to form a more useful weapon. I'm optimistic, not

    Yes, I get that! But why use that spear?!

    Oh. Don't worry about it!

    But-

    I said, don't. Worry. About. It.


    Spiriton Dress

    So wait, why do you have so many of these?

    The fairies don't sleep, and they kinda get bored. I've got a few movie marathons, board game tournaments and other activites going on in the suit all the time. The engineer guys find it relaxing remodeling the façade, even if the data guys act annoyed every time. Truthfully, they find it just as entertaining figuring out the new structure.

    And why are they all media references?

    They know how to do it without annoying me.

    Developer Notes

    Astolfo, while I like you as a character, for the purpose of this sheet and how you made explanations harder: Fuck you.

    The choice for using the Longinus from Evangelion as the lance’s appearance is heavily influenced by the purpose of the lance in those works, and it’s parallel to the flags within the sheet.

    So, before making this, I flipped between Neil being this, or Mooncancer. That was decided in the end to be a different form I wouldn’t touch, because the NP that came to mind ended up being way, way, way too close to Nobunaga. Still think parts landed too close.

    So, I was really struggling to give Neil a unique skill, however in the end, two came to mind. One was used here, but the other was decided to be placed in a Cu situation. When Neil has the spear, he doesn’t have the skill, when he doesn’t have the lance? He gets a skill called Shroud of Space Dust(representing Grain in a different way) that would weaken enemies with a divinity stat, with a greater weakening effect the greater the divinity rate.

    The armour/suit is a universal NP, but was given a completely different function in the MoonCancer sheet.

    So, SSS is a holdover from when the Longinus was still described as having the same light as Rhongo. I always took this as meaning they were pins for the same texture. Therefore, the idea of multiple pins that held different definitive features of a texture(this was at the same time I had the idea of the Age of God's ending at 0 A.D.) Longinus was no gods, Rhongo was no Fantasy, and SSS would be other worlds.

    Now, while the end of the AoG has moved and the text has been changed, I still had the idea of 'update pins' that would add to the main pin, but wouldn't bring everything crashing down when destroyed. This is where SSS and Voyager fall within this conceptualisation.

    The explanation for his stats comes mainly from a certain Falsely Murderous Musician, as he gave me an example of a person who should have low stat possessing ones far higher than that.

    Fun thing, my current list of Pillars of Light is:
    The cannon ones:
    Rhongo
    Ryu Jingu Bang
    By others:
    Feather of Ma’at(Credit to DelRey)
    The Divine Tree(Credit to Wyvern)
    Personal:
    The Mountains of the Moon(Texture pin for a section of Africa’s age of the gods)
    The First Blade(Death)
    The Garden of Eden(Abrhamic Age of Gods)
    Kaumodaki(Hindu Age of Gods)
    Yggdrasil(Norse Age of Gods)
    Atlas’s Prison(The separation of the heavens and earth)

    To reiterate, the Fairies have 0 combat ability or effect, they are just there because
    The first NP was inspired by shipgirl games to an extent
    It fit with Neil’s personality
    They are cute as fuck to describe.

    Going to be honest, I looked at every angle I could think of to give a reason for Neil having a Knight Arm. Still got nothing, but it may come up if I ever do a Moon Cell variation, aka his Voyager or Moon Cancer forms.


    Sheet Comments

    Minotaurus-Ariadne: Honestly? This sheet is really cool, although it pulls on some of my heart strings. Nice job.

    So, after saying this I had a look around and finally found my old discarded sheet on an old memory stick. Considering it is pretty much done and I haven't posted a Servant in like six months I figured I'd treat you to a sheet from my old experimental phase. You can see for example that there's no Lore section - instead I merged it into the Character section in an attempt to "show" you his personality through moments in his life rather than simply "tell" you how great he is. Anyways, enjoy an unnecessary third take on the same dude...

    --------------------------

    Ruler



    True Name: Ambrosius Aurelianus
    Epithet: "The Last of the Romans"
    Region: Britain (Arthurian Mythology)
    Catalyst: Stonehenge
    Armament: His ancestral Gladius sword
    Alignment: Lawful Good
    Likes: Dogs, Purple
    Dislikes: Doctors, Soothsayers
    Talents: Charioteering, Sermons
    Natural Enemy: Merlin

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

    Character
    Ruler takes the form of Ambrosius Aurelianus, the Emperor of Britain who rallied his countrymen in order to repel the invasion of the Saxons. Although to his Master, he prefers to be called by his old nickname of "Emrys" as he feels unworthy to be thought of as a Roman.

    Descended from the "Gens Aurelia", Ambrosius was the son of a Roman Consul who held a lot of power and influence in Britain and it was why in the aftermath of Uther Pendragon's assassination, he reluctantly took the reigns of Emperor to combat the insurrection of Vortigern and his Saxon followers. It is for this reason he is remembered as the "Last of the Romans" as despite Artoria and her successors also having Roman blood, they preferred to use the ancient Celtic title of "High King" ("Penn Teyrned") instead.

    From the moment he was born, Ambrosius knew he was different from others as he was gifted with visions of the future from the almighty God. However, he considers this a troublesome burden as he found himself unable to prevent any of these visions from coming to pass no matter how dire, such as the murder of his parents during a Saxon raid. This puts him at odds with his ally Merlin, as the man's demonic heritage and his casual ability to gaze into the future at will and even change it aggravates him. Although he would not admit it, deep in his heart Ambrosius suspects Merlin of having not warned him of his impending assassination due to favouring the chances of Artoria defeating Vortigern and so he bears a grudge against Merlin for that. Ambrosius also considers it his fault that he used his gift to reveal the location of the White and Red Dragons that King Lludd had sealed away many centuries prior. While it had to be done according to Merlin to empower Artoria, the fact that Vortigern subsequently got his hands on the power of the White Dragon and killed many people weighs heavily on Ambrosius' mind.

    Despite all of that, Ambrosius tries to be positive and live his (after)life to the fullest moving forward. To that end he encourages his Master not to become embroiled in the hatred of war and to focus on enduring through it to reach for peaceful days again. That said, when the time comes to draw his sword, Ambrosius transforms from a jolly laid-back fellow into a fiercesome warrior whose ice cold glare put fear even into the heart of someone like Vortigern. His calm voice and unwavering determination will steady the hearts of those who fight alongside him and rally courage to fight against even impossible odds. It is only once his Master sees him in the heat of battle will they understand why he was worthy of the burden of the title of "Emperor".

    As an aside, when his Master asked him why he was summoned as a Ruler Class Servant...with a cheeky grin on his face, Ambrosius said that due to the historical mistaken conflation of his legend with that of Aurelius Ambrosius - a contemporary Saint from Milan, he was able to squeeze his way into the Class. Upon his Master questioning if that counts as identity fraud, Ambrosius quickly changes the subject.

    His Wish upon the Grail? None. Perhaps it is the only Ruler-esque thing about him (and maybe the true reason he was allowed into the Class), but Ambrosius would not sully the majesty of a Holy Artefact with his regrets and it would also go against his philosophy of accepting the past whilst keep pressing forward.


    Skills

    Class Skills

    Magic Resistance - (B)
    The protection granted against magical effects. Differing from the Resistance effect that merely rejects Magical Energy, this ability cancels the spells altogether. As a warrior from the age of swords and sorcery, Ambrosius has a strong immunity to magical effects even if he does not use them himself since he fought alongside the master magician himself, Merlin. As a Servant, Ambrosius will naturally cancel out spells with a chant below two verses, and even if he is targeted by greater magecraft and Greater Rituals, it is difficult for Ambrosius to be affected.

    Personal Skills

    Command of the Emperor - (B)
    A composite Skill combining Ambrosius' talents of a military leader with the charisma of his time as Emperor. Despite the seeming hopelessness of the Saxon onslaught, Ambrosius took command and won battle after battle at Guoloph, Maisbeli & Cunungeburg to name a few, which brought a period of peace and the adoration of his people. As a result, this Skill maximises the collective power of a Party that Ambrosius is leading (including himself) so they fight as a more cohesive unit and Bonus Modifiers are provided when they deploy an Anti-Army Noble Phantasm or when they are fighting against one.

    Protection of the Faith - (C)
    A Skill possessed only by those who have sacrificed themselves for a religious view. Despite being a form of divine protection, it is not a blessing from a higher existence but rather the absoluteness of one’s body and mind that was born from their beliefs. But if it is too high, it causes abnormalities in the personality. Ambrosius was a pious man, with his ability to see into the future and his talent for winning battles against the odds, he really bought into the belief that God was on his side. As such, his determination to endure pain and mental tension is beyond that of most people and is rewarded with a small boost to his physical Parameters during critical moments.

    Weak Constitution - (C)
    A weakness struck by the nature of frail health. Similar in nature to Innocent Monster, where the perception of the people in the future affects the existence of the Heroic Spirit. No matter how the stories of Ambrosius' life varies, one constant thing remains which is that all roads lead to his fatal poisoning at the hands of the Saxon assassin Eopa. As a result, Ambrosius is always haunted by the risk of a sudden Status Drop whenever he has to undertake a strenuous action and fails the accompanied Check. The probability of risk is not high, but when it occurs in the midst of combat, it can be devastating and may cost him the fight.

    Noble Phantasm


    "Holy Father that watches over synthesis. Grant me access to the Compass of Time so that I might shatter the pall of darkness and let the whirlpool of possibilities combine to bring forth a new radiant future!"

    Breuddwyd Emrys
    "The Dream of the Ambrose"

    [Type: Anti-Unit], [Rank: C], [Maximum Range: 2-3 Meters], [Maximum Number of Targets: 1]

    Throughout his life, Ambrosius was plagued with visions of the future. Although he thanked the Lord for granting him this power which saved his life on numerous occasions, he was also burdened with the fact that he often could not change what he saw - including the night his parents were murdered by the invading Saxons. This sense of helplessness against seeming predestination weighs heavily upon him and so he is determined to use his time as a Servant to change that and bring his Master to victory.

    Ordinarily, this Noble Phantasm will work passively. Ambrosius will start to hear a quiet buzzing sound in his ear as things begin to go badly wrong around him for up to sixty seconds. Eventually the noise in his head will grow so loud that it will snap Ambrosius out of his daydream and he will notice that it wasn't just his imagination as things start to play out exactly as he had seen just like Deja Vu. Thus it is up to Ambrosius to do what he can to try and prevent the bad future from coming to pass. The vision won't always trigger and often sixty seconds isn't enough to do anything to prevent disaster...but if even one life can be saved, then Ambrosius will feel a tremendous sense of wholesomeness.

    But the true power of this Noble Phantasm is how it can change the course of battle. When locked in the heat of combat, Ambrosius can pour all of his magical energy into this power and suddenly it will feel as if time itself has slowed to a crawl. What looks like droplets of water will form and float in the air around them and upon closer inspection, various moments in time a few seconds into the future are depicted across the many droplets which will start flowing towards the enemy, coalescing into streams of water and images - not unlike film reels which reveal potential futures the battle can take. By tracing his sword along the stream of time he picks, Ambrosius' sword will be guided towards that future and will land a critical blow on his opponent which could completely overturn the dire situation and clutch victory from the jaws of defeat.

    However, even this supposed gift from God is not invincible and as such Anti-Causality Skills or Noble Phantasms can negate its effect. Furthermore, this power can only reveal potential situations that can take place and so if Ambrosius were to fight someone as mighty as Heracles who is his superior in every aspect, the window for victory would be firmly closed and this Noble Phantasm would never activate.


    Relationships
    Artoria - "I will be frank. Uther, Merlin and I were all placing our hopes for a brighter future in you. Regardless of whether you succeeded or not, to see you now try to throw it all away on the Holy Grail and trample on the feelings of those who died for you enrages me."

    Astolfo - "Give my regards to your father. He was a great opponent and I would love to do battle with him again."

    Bedivere - "That silver arm, it can't be...King Lludd!?"

    Beowulf - "That sword, Næġling...I could have sworn I saw it somewhere before but I can't put my finger on it."

    Boudica - "My heart aches when I hear about what my kinsmen did to you. If it would ease your suffering at all, you may strike me down if you wish."

    Florence Nightingale - "I'm sorry, the last time a 'doctor' tried to give me something, it was poison in disguise that killed me. So you'll have to excuse me from being wary of any shots."

    Merlin - "Although we often did not see eye to eye. I thank you my friend, for fulfilling my final request and burying me alongside Uther and Constantine under the Giant's Ring."

    Oberon-Vortigern - "It is with great sadness that I had to fight against a son of my friend Constantine. How on earth could his child turn out like this, I always wondered."

    Romulus - "How humbled I am to meet the great founder of Rome. I don't feel I am worthy to bear the title of Emperor when standing next to you."

    Valkyries - "How strange. Would you ladies per chance be related to that pagan deity Óðinn? Yes, I thought as much. I once met a man with a similar air to you that was his descendant."


    Creator's Notes

    The FaceClaim is Mutsumi Hachiōji from the manga/anime "All-Out!". I originally had a different (and more fitting) FC but I ended up using it for a different Servant after initially scrapping Ambrosius. He might be the wrong ethnicity and from a completely wrong time period, but I really like Mutsumi's energy and feel his demeanour is perfect so I used him anyways.

    Looking back, I didn't realise at the time how similar to Shiki Tohno I ended up making Ambrosius, between his Noble Phantasm involving "lines" to his frail health. I couldn't be bothered to change it though.

    "Here's a bangin lil' tune about takin' on The Man!"

    Gatsby: I've already said well done, but let me go into a bit more depth. I think you did a really great job encapsulating the character of Gatsby into the sheet, and while the existence of the second NP is more than a little confusing, it's a fun bit that references the original story and falls into the literary analysis like you yourself mentioned. I'd probably have to say that my favorite parts, outside the art, art the golden and green lights. While the second is just a wonderful crystalisation of his mind set, and the first is just funny to imagine the guy bullshitting magic through wealth.

    Ambrosius Aurelianus: You know, despite the fact we've had a couple different takes on this guy in short order, it's been refreshing to see some very different view points on the guy. This one probably is my favourite, fitting well enough into fate cannon and going a very different method of things. The relationships are all pretty interesting, and the NP is something I'd never have thought of, so great job. Great to see a new sheet from ya.

    Do you want to live?
    Then, do not waste any time.
    Let us get down to the business of survival.

    Sefar Core, unravel.
    Prepare to to taste the merciless sands of time.





    O Great Desert, can you tell me of anything better—
    Than to have your faithful companions and your reliable mount,
    To find your way by the light of the four bright stars of heaven,
    To know how to find quenching water in the unlikeliest of places,
    And enlist the momentum of the wind to help you move forward?



    14.000 years ago, the Sahara was an entirely different world.
    It was not the vast desert and desolate wasteland that it is today.
    Rather, it was then a sprawling green paradise brimming with life.
    Here, many great ancient civilizations lived under the blessing of the gods.
    Until one day—the White Titan fell upon the City of Sefar.



    The White Titan rampaged across the Planet and brought forth the end of the Age of God.
    Even after it was finally felled by the Holy Sword, its corpse went back to sleep within the Sahara.
    Buried beneath the Stone City of Sefar in Tassili n’ajjer, it continued its mission of destruction.
    The corpse of the White Titan remained as the embodiment of the ever-expanding Sahara itself.
    Until one day—humanity managed to tame the great desert.



    As long as there is a will to live—we humans can survive anywhere.
    From the tall mountains to the stormy seas, from the freezing tundra to the ravenous jungle.
    Even in this living wasteland that continues to ravage the world, this desert that rejects life.
    No doubt, humanity would eventually outlive this very planet. There is no need to lament it.
    After all, survival of the fittest has always been the fundamental principle of this world.



    Class: Rider
    True Name: Tin Hinan
    Gender: Female
    Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
    Origin: Historical Facts and Rumors, Tuareg Folklore
    Attribute: Man

    The legendary Queen and Ancestress of the Tuareg people of the Sahara; she was a wise queen, a tenacious warrior, and a cunning magus. It is said that after being exiled from the city of Tafilalt in the Atlas Mountains, she traveled south into the inhospitable wastelands of the great desert, accompanied by her loyal followers.

    After much tribulation and hardship, she is said to have founded a prosperous Kingdom in the Hoggar mountains at the heart of the Sahara—originating the culture that would thrive within the unfathomable emptiness of the desert.

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

    Class Skills:
    Riding: A+
    The capability to mount steeds and operate vehicles, signature of Rider-class Servants. Using an ancient Saharan zoology magecraft that utilizes the concept of “animal domestication” at its core, it is possible for Rider to pacify and tame any beast, allowing her to ride mounts even at the level of Phantasmal Species and Divine Beasts, with the exception of Dragonkind.

    Magic Resistance: B
    Able to cancel basic to intermediate-class of magecraft, and can even withstand high-level spells without much trouble. In addition, though the blue veil that Rider often wears, an extension of her Noble Phantasm, she also receives powerful warding against spells that utilizes wind, dust and heat.

    Personal Skills:
    Voyager of the Desert Storm: A+
    The testament of Rider as the matriarch that founded the Tuareg way of life that allows humanity to survive and even thrive in the great deserts of the Sahara. It is the skill to command a desert caravan across the vast sea of sands, which includes the composite ability of a desert-specialized version of Charisma and Tactics.

    It allows Rider to rouse the survival instinct of allies and enhances their resilience in perilous environments and conditions of scarcity, essentially granting them low-ranking Independent Action. Also raises the effectiveness of combat capabilities in desert regions.

    Primordial Astromancy: C
    For thousands of years, the clear night sky and unobstructed view of the Sahara has facilitated the acts of stargazing. Inherited from Atlas, the mythical Astronomer King of Mauretania, Rider’s Astromancy Magecraft is somewhat primitive, yet quite accurate and practical.

    Among other things, it can be used for navigation and limited future prediction. It also allows Rider to employ the Celestial Spirits that reside in the heavens as familiars. Among these familiars is her trusty steed, Talemt, the celestial white she-camel that, according to Tuareg mythology, is embedded in Ursa Major.

    Tifinagh Oracle Runes: B
    A kind of blessing, or perhaps curse, bestowed as the royal symbol of the leaders and chieftains of the Tuaregs. It is the ability to temporarily boost the overall strength of a creature to the scale of a Titan, by inscribing and injecting into their flesh or Saint Graph the Oracles Runes written in the Tifinagh script. In other words—it is the ability to forcefully grant the Monstrous Strength skill to any creature.

    Noble Phantasms:
    Tagelmust Tamenokalt
    Azure Veil of the Ever Distant Mirage
    Type: Anti-Unit (Self), Anti-Army (Self)
    Rank: B+
    The authority of the Matriarch of the Tents.
    A Noble Phantasm in the form of the distinctive scarf commonly worn by the Blue Men of the Desert. On its own, it provides a passive protection that can reliably defend Rider against all manner of hazardous natural elements, especially dust, wind, and heat.

    It has a defensive value enough to effortlessly withstand up to B-rank Noble Phantasms. This veil can also be expanded and transformed to form a shield, or a tent, increasing the range of protection and allowing it to defend against physical damage and other types of damage to some degree.

    With a True Name activation, the very nature of this Noble Phantasm changes, and its range can even establish a Bounded Field that encompasses an entire city. However, in this form, its function will be reversed. Instead of a sheltering tent that provides protections, it will impose the concept of “desertification” within the designated area, in which Rider can wield and control deadly burning sandstorms capable of annihilating civilizations.

    This is the true form of this Noble Phantasm—a weapon of mass destruction fashioned from the corpse of the White Titan. It is the very embodiment of the formation and expansion of the Sahara Desert, which continues to threaten the world to this day.

    Tenere Sefar
    All-Consuming White Void of the Forlorn Ark City
    Type: Anti-World
    Rank: EX

    Tin Hanan-I've never heard of Tin Hanan before this, but holy FUCK does this go hard as hell. The picture you've painted through flavor text and description is utterly superb, I'd nut if this was an officially added servant. Like, there's something about how you've put it that brings back memories of My first experience playing through Sky:Children of the Light, and hearing about The Legend of the Secret Seekers of the Shadow of the Colossus community. there's just a certain wondrous whimsy to it.

    Minotauros- Oh fuck, my guy Dionysus is showing up? Hell yeah man. Good job with forging the concept of a sorrowful monster, it really makes me feel for her. That NP is also REALLY fucking dangerous, so good, quality shit

    Ambrosius Aurelianus- Yo, I REALLY like that NP- the theme of moments it carries across his abilities when tied with weak constitution, the soul you've poured into the character of a ruler who can simply do the best he can, no more, despite facing potentially insurmountable odds... It's got that great feeling to it.

    Lancer Neil Armstrong- THE LAD IS HERE!!! FUCKING ADORE what you've done with the lad, it makes me sad to look at what I'm doing with mine in comparison to the camaraderie yours gets to enjoy. Wonderfully balanced, and as I said before, I really like the defensive tech, that's a mad good concept.

    I love it. I love how you incorporated sefar into such a minor figure in a way that surpasses nasu’s writing and worldbuilding. I’m just curious why you used such a pale FC for someone who lived in the deserts of Africa tho.

    (What do you think of my foreigner Dante idea BTW)

    Tin Hinan: Damn, now that's a glowup for a fairly obscure figure. Everything looks really well thought out, and the references to African magecraft systems kinda just leaves me wanting more. The connection to Velber-02 is a neat touch, and makes sense with the historical timeline of when the Sahara became a desert. Overall, it looks really good. I just really want to know what that second NP does.

    Ratatoskr: Cute treerat, galaxy-brained Grand Rider candidate. would summon

    Tolkien: Really cool. He works extremely well as a magus, and I would even say that he really should be written as a magus sheet instead of a Servant sheet.

    Morrigan: Nice to see artists in the BL CaS community, and design and personality-wise this particular Morrigan rocks. I would imagine Morrigan to be much more powerful and hax in TM though.

    Sumeramikoto: Ah yes, the famous Japanese mecha. It's a really cool concept and this one is no exception. (i also have one in the works)

    Toscanini: You have pretty interesting choice of modern-era figures, but I must say your execution is still lacking. I get that modern servants tends to be weak (they're not), but yours are just pathetically puny. You could probably take note of the Tolkien sheet above for example, and just make them into mages.

    Fiore: I've always wanted to see this guy as a Servant, but that was honestly just too short lol

    Hua Mulan: Once again, the overall character design is pretty good, but the sheet itself (especially the NP, honestly what the hell is that lmao) is quite lacking.

    Merlin Alter: Neat servant and nice read, but the concept reminds me too much of FGO's Oberon.

    Perseus: What a sigma, but also Honestly a pretty tame and restrained Perseus in terms of powerlevel lol.

    Lostbelt Azazel: You know, I love how your sheets always has that Arknights Operator profile vibes (i guess it's Lobotomy Corporation in this case).

    Ganymede: lmao now that's a really soulful Ganymede sheet, really love this one

    Minotaurus: a surprisingly fascinating take on Minotaur in the Dionysian tradition. also keep these angst and tragedy coming

    Gatsby: Now this is one is a banger, with both great character design and sheet writing. Keep it up!

    Neil Armstrong: Every single Armstrong servants posted in these threads always such a joy to read, and this one is no exception. real great job with this one, and especially that NP is such a cool concept. Would love to see his interaction with my Yuri Gagarin though

    Ambrosius: a more vanilla straigtforward concept of Ambrosius, especially compared to the other ones. this one in particular seems to be throughly well-researched
