    Class: Saber
    True Name: Gajah Merik
    Alignment: Lawful Good.
    Origins: Sumatra, The Island of Bengkulu

    Parameters
    Strength: B+
    Agility: A
    Endurance: EX
    Mana: B
    Luck: C
    NP: B+


    Class SkillsMagic Resistance (Rank A): This skill came about due to innate dream sage that has taught Saber all that he learns throughout his young age and his prodigy like skills in magecraft.

    Riding (Rank B): This skill came about as Saber of part of a royal family and he was well verse in the art of animal handling and riding.


    Personal Skills Magecraft of Serenity (Rank A-): This skill grants Saber many powerful magecraft skills that learn from his youth though because of the unnatural way that learn these. Via a sage that kept appearing in his dreams for three years straight. He can only use it in a state of emptiness that means he has to concentrate on it and basically become a sitting duck.

    Swift Strider (Rank B+): This skill allows Saber to traverse on any terrain and gain a rank up in agility when he came in contact with water surfaces and even disoriented his foes in phantom mist while this skill is active. This skill came from on of his sacred weapons a dagger that allows him to perform this skill

    Enlighten Mind (Rank A): A mana detection skill that is able to trace mana right out in the air. This skill came from Saber a week-long meditation in which he became in tuned with his environment. This skill greatly helps Saber in the middle of combat as he can bob and wave with the flow of mana around to increase his attack potency exponentially.


    Noble PhantasmDance of The Spirits, Serpent Tide
    Rank: B+
    Type: Anti-Demonic Beast

    This Noble Phantasm is the one he gains from his Legend of Slaying the Seven Headed Serpent King. With this he conjures of illusionary serpent heads from his shawl that disorients his enemies and activating their flight or fright responses. As the are paralyzed and engulphed in the demonic mist as the shawl morphs into blade delivering a single swift strike deals the fatal blow. This Noble Phantasm works better for beast type servants.


    Misc LinesLikes: I always like to meditate a long the lake shore. It’s calming to interact with the nearby spirits.

    Dislikes: I hated when there is an unfair fight, I always want to fight people at their best. Fighting injured or crippled people is not really my thing. So, I made a point to try heal them up before engaging them in the fight I wanted

    Holy Grail: The Holy Grail, you said plenty of strong people are willing to fight for it. I then I wish to continue on finding new foes to test my might against them.

    Event: There is something ongoing out there. What kind of challenges awaits out there for me master?


    Bond LinesBond Line 1: Oh sorry, master you are looking for me. it’s okay I been isolating myself in the simulator for a while. I am not used to the hustle and bustle of Chaldea. It’s a bit to noisy for my liking.

    Bond Line 2: You’re asking me about my blade It’s to small you say, I see you though this little dagger is my blade no it isn’t my blade. This shawl is let me show you. (As unfurled his shawl to morphing it into a fine edge blade.)

    Bond Line 3: I always wonder what how sprits feel about themselves. Stuck in limbo like state, though I didn’t expect to be able experience it like this. My tale is rather local one, you have to dig deep to find small traces of it.

    Bond Line 4: You know, I miss the clear blue surface the lake. It seems that the only time I get to see it is in this simulator. But I know that is not quite that same. It might be a pretty petty reason to fight on humanity behalf but I want to be that glistening lake shore just one more time.

    Bond Line 5: Master can I have a moment with you please. It’s been a while since we are fighting together. Though I am just a character from a minor folktale. To be able to see experience new things with you. Well, it’s been a blast I hope I can be with you through it all. Until the end.


    RelationshipMochizuki Chiyohime : That Curse in your body, I felt something similar presence of an old friend of mine. But it’s faint and not quite the same.

    Ibuki-Douji : Huh, you are the spitting image of my old friend. I wonder if you and her will get along or not.

    Merlin: The Mage of Flowers, his attitude. Has me reminisce about my old mentor. Though because it was all kind of a dream for me. I can’t even recall his face, it’s all still hazy even now.

    Gorgon: Easy there, Missy I am not a slayer like most heroes if I can get a good agreement with my foes. I will always spare their lives.

    Kiyohime: Aren’t you a little to young to be stalker. Okay, I am just asking.

    Miyamoto Mushashi : Thanks for you for training with me, It was great. Though I can’t help but notice that you were staring at me for the entire match. What is up with that.


    Craft Essence

    Mystic Lake

    Here I stand on the eve of twilight, in this clear shoreline. This grand lake, of bustling people and sprits reflected on their waters edge. Like the night stars they glow with an ethereal light. For this lake is my true start, this is where my heroes journey began and so at least I wish to see again at least one last time.

    Source: Yangsongwai0136

    Class: Assassin
    Other Classes: N/A
    True Name: Brunello
    Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
    Place of Origin: France (15th century)/Morocco

    Parameters:

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

    Height: 140cm
    Weight: 110lbs
    Likes: Stealing items
    Dislikes: People who can easily defeat him
    Talent: Stealing incredibly well
    Natural Enemy: Bradamante
    Attribute: Earth
    Traits: Male, Humanoid, Demonic, Weak to Enuma Elish
    Armament: N/A
    Catalyst: A shard of a wall of glass

    Class Skills:
    Presence Concealment A: He gains this rank due to his posession of a ring belonging to Angelica. It has not sublimated as a noble phantasm, but instead an addition to this skill, allowing him to go completely invisible at will, although this can only last a few seconds and then goes on a ten minute cooldown.

    Personal Skills:
    Trickery C: This skill is the sublimation of his trickery of Ruggiero from coming out to gain the weapons. This skill essentially allows him to utilize Charisma in a form that allows him to convince enemies to follow his bidding. However, enemies with Mental Interference or Magic Resistance above C rank can resist this.
    Robbing Of Horses B: Allows him to seal a mount of a Rider by placing his hands on it for a short time. The sublimation of his thievery of King Sacripante's horse from right under him.
    Imperial Privilege (Robbery) C: The sublimation of his theft of Marfisa's sword, his outracing of her, and his kingdom received. Allows him to choose between: Fleetfooted, Swordsmanship, Riding, Territory Creation, or Charisma at the same rank.

    Noble Phantasm(s):

    Alhil Almakira
    The Impossible Thief

    Type: Support
    Rank: C
    Range: 2 meters
    Max Targets: 1

    This noble phantasm is the sublimation of his incredible thievery. This ability is fairly simple, all told, allowing him to teleport himself short distances, up to 2 meters at a time. He also teleports any items touching him, allowing him to pull off feats like for example, stealing a horse from underneath the owner, simply by teleporting to it, touching it, and flashing out. It also has a fairly low mana cost, allowing it to be used fairly frequently. He will use this as much as possible to get any items he wants.

    Lore: Brunello was a thief who worked for King Agramante. He was tasked to steal Princess Angelica's ring in order to convince Ruggiero to aid Agramante, and while doing so he also stole King Sacripante's horse and Marfisa's sword. Then, to convince Ruggiero to aid them, he convinces his allies to do war games, so that Ruggiero can't resist joining in, and then convincing him there, which works, and he is rewarded with a kingdom. But then, Bradamante steals the ring back from him, and Marfisa then kills him.

    Personality: A sly and cunning person. He wants to obtain as many treasures as he can, and has a fairly easy time stealing them, so believes that it is worth it to almost constantly steal. In addition, he also holds a great distaste for easily tricked people, especially heroes such as Ruggiero who were tricked easily. His wish for the grail would be to be able to amass many great treasures.

    Relationships:
    Bradamante: "Hm, what do you mean I stole your shield? You are holding it right now! (Just as planned, she falsely accused me of stealing, now she will be punished and no one will be able to warn them.)"
    Astolfo: "Would you like to join my army? All right, fine. (At least I managed to steal Trap of Argalia first.)"
    Katsuhika Hokusai: "What do you mean you saw me stealing your brush? Oh no, don't use your noble phantasm on me. Please!"

    i finally took the time to read Bn's Okita
    I really need enough time to read your short stories. This one has over 9K words which amount to about 18 pages. Or perhaps I just read slowly, but my comparison is Morg, who is an editor and native speaker.
    character as always presented well, you explore a character like no other. The way you inserted ascensions is something I quite like. perhaps I steal this one someday.
    But I think some Fakers, especially this one, when we just KNOW they are fake should be presented as Faker right away. Recent examples of the veterans showed that this still works pretty well. Making a souji sheet seems like a drag to read through and takes up space and time.
    I like all the skills, they are done well, the last NP is great, my only nitpick would be the weird glitch mechanic. When I started reading it my thought was "neat, two souji strikes and one random one targetted somewhere else" but you went with the most minute differences instead which seems unnecessary in my book. One could argue that his version might be stronger than hers which should not be the case imo.
    Behold! The works of a maniac!
    Servants!

    Gaswain:
    • You could probably cut down a bit on the spacing between different sections. Seriously, no need to hit spacebar so many times each time you want to separate them, pressing it once or twice is usually enough.
    • The NP is mostly a sword beam with anti-magecraft aspects and more damage over time if I understand correctly, which seems fine.
    • Personally, I'd probably put The Scar-Eye at a rank lower than EX, maybe B+ or thereabouts, given that it's probably less useful than a high-ranked Clairvoyance Skill on average.
    • This isn't required at all, but since his application of Charisma is somewhat limited and not a huge part of his legend, his Golden Rule isn't especially high-ranked, and both of those are overall fairly generic Skills rather than more character-specific ones, I'd probably merge his Charisma and his Golden Rule into a new Skill called, like, Charisma of the Wicked Treasurer or something. (I know Charisma is supposed to be fairly rare, but generic =/= common.)
    • Self-Modification here is an interesting idea. As HumanComplex already mentioned, it'd be nice if he also had another Skill that actually uses the magic core you've already established has been implanted into him in the description of Self-Modification, so, probably something like a Mana Burst variant.
    • I personally don't really have anything to comment about him as a character.


    Gajah Merik: I'd maybe change the rank of Magecraft of Serenity to A- and change the description to specify that the minus modifier represents the sitting duck thing? I guess his goal is mostly to have some peace and quiet and he doesn't have much else going on as a character; still seems fine. Interesting that with those personal skills and noble phantasm he'd probably work well as an Assassin but he can't really be one since he refuses to fight people that aren't at their best and be excessively unfair in battle.

    Brunello: Delightful little kleptomaniac. It might be a brief sheet, but I like it a lot. His thefts are all very well represented, and he just seems like he'd lead to a lot of fun shenanigans. please take this honest feedback at face value and ignore my Orlando Furioso bias kthx

    I hope enough time has passed that me bringing it up again isn't too annoying, but does anybody have any comments on the Foreigner I recently posted?

    I like the idea of him using mana burst, but can’t think of what his variant would be. Any suggestions?

    Name: Dr. Woland

    Class: Caster

    Source: The Master and Margarita

    Aliases: ???

    Gender: Male

    Height: 190 cm

    Weight: 72 kg


    Alignment: Lawful Evil

    Likes: Having fun with humans

    Dislikes: Humans who don't think Jesus exists

    Weapons: Mana, Trickery

    Traits: Humanoid, Servant, Male, Demonic, Weak to Enuma Elish

    Attribute: Earth

    Strength: D

    Endurance: C

    Agility: C

    Mana: B

    Luck: A

    Noble Phantasm: B

    Skills
    The Devil’s Greatest Trick (A Rank): This skill is defensive and hides him. Although it will not mask the effects of Voland’s magic, it will make people not believe that it is caused by him unless they directly witness him using magic and even people who do discover him will not be believed by others as they look for other explanations.

    Manuscripts don't Burn (A Rank): This Skill is a manifestation of Bulgakov’s hatred of censorship and the destruction of books. It strengthens all his spells and the magic circuits of his allies. It can increase the effects of skills by one rank for 1 turn with a 3 turn cooldown

    Great Tempter (A Rank): This is a Skill similar to Charisma as it allows him to manipulate large groups of people. However, instead of commanding people, it allows him to manipulate his enemies and cause them to work towards their own undoing and destruction. doesn't work on servants/enemies with MR B or above, or servants with any type of mental resistance. To those it can affect, he can completely halt the movement of any incoming attacks aside from NPs, and cannot manipulate them by any means.
    Territory Creation (B Rank): 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. Wherever Voland was, it became his stage and a place for temptation and trickery. His show was his presence and all in that area fell under his control. It will not be enough to force servants to fall under his control but can exert pressure and a fear type effect on servants. Servants with MR B or above, or servants with any type of mental resistance can resist it
    Item Creation (A Rank): It is the Skill to manufacture magical items, from implements of war to items for daily use. Also, this Skill requires time to gather components and manufacture items. As Voland was a master of tricks and illusions, he can create anything reasonable to his master’s desire like a magician would. One of his specialties is currency, but don’t be surprised if it disappears soon.

    Noble Phantasm

    Name: A Show of Black Magic; Satan of Orthodoxy
    Type: Anti-Army
    Rank: B
    Range: ???
    Maximum Targets: 1-???
    Voland puts on a show of Black Magic, recreating the show at the Variety Theater. After they see his show, they will be inflicted with all of the wrath of a vindictive devil looking for fun. Bad Luck, Low Mana, Temptation, Visitations by demons, Illusions, and other bedevilments will be inflicted upon his audience and they will spread the effects as they leave his show and walk among other people and the skill will spread until it covers an entire city. This skill also increases his mana as more humans are caught under its thrall. The amount of bedevilment sent to a specific person is proportional to how little they believe in God. A Saint would be almost unaffected by it, but a pagan or heretic would find the effects crippling and potentially fatal. It is rank B that reduces the stats of enemies all by one, inflicts fear and creates illusions that servants with MR rank A or servants with any type of mental resistance can resist. For those that can't, it will last 3 turns with a 5 turn cooldown
    Backstory
    Voland, a demon of hell, walked into 1930s Moscow looking for some fun. He first overheard a conversation between the poet Bezdomny and Berlioz, the head of a literary union. Berlioz was berating him for writing a poem that writes of Jesus as a real person and not a pagan figure. Voland interjected himself into the conversation, claiming to be a foreign professor of black magic, and not only tells them that there really was a Jesus but also tells them the true story of his meeting with Pontius Pilate. He left them with the prophecy that Berlioz will be decapitated by a young woman of the Communist Party, a prophecy that quickly came to pass. Bezdomny chases after Voland, but fails and is then sent to an asylum. While in the asylum, he meets The Master, an angry author who burned his rejected Manuscript of a book about Pontius Pilate and misses his love, Margarita. Meanwhile, Voland puts on a show of Black Magic in the Variety Theater and he and his retinue have been terrorizing the citizens of Moscow. Voland sends one of his demons to give Margarita a magic cream and using it turns her into a great beauty. Margarita turns into a witch and flies to his Winter Ball, where he introduces her to several infamous ghosts of history. Voland offers her one wish and she asks for a woman she had met to be released from damnation, which he grants. He gives her one more wish, which she uses to have the Master sent to her. He recreates the Master’s burned manuscript and tells him to finish it. Voland and his retinue leave Moscow, and the strange events are blamed on mass hysteria and hypnosis. The Master finished his book, freeing the soul of Pontius Pilate, and will live for eternity in Limbo with Margarita.
    Personality
    Voland is vindictive, sadistic and arrogant. He takes pleasure in the befuddlement of humans and sees them as nothing but playthings for him. He also enjoys showing off his magical talents and putting on a show for people. He has a profound dislike for humans that deny that Jesus exists and sees this as a sin worthy of specific torment. Despite this inherent dislike of humanity, he has no problem with virtuous people that care for others and will even go out of his way to help them and make them.

    Any advice on this?

    Well, for the first time since February, the OP has been updated. I've got it up to page 350, and I'll be taking a break for a little bit before updating it up to page 400.

    At first, it was hard to ascertain Shielder’s true name. She’s certainly not a fighter and does not carry anything resembling a shield, begging the question of what is her qualification for this class.
    Similarly, she seems so familiar with the modern world and so comfortable living in it that it’s hard to believe she’s a hero of old.
    Of course, this is only a mystery because of the Master. She’s fine with revealing her true name, but if they want to make it into a game, she can’t hold back on teasing them a bit.

    That said, I think that’s enough playing around. Good job guessing it, babe.
    I am
    Phryne, Aphrodite incarnate. I heard Chaldea pays you well, so feel free to give me call, 'kay?



    Character

    Phryne’s ego matches her beauty and wit. She always has to be the one in charge, leading the conversation and having the final say on any decisions. Those who won’t accept that are in for a harsh silent treatment, unless they can prove they’re clever and charismatic enough to talk with her on the same level, or are someone she already admired to begin with.
    She’s not receptive to disagreements and criticism, but won’t discard someone’s legitimate opinion either, as long as the other party respects the dynamic that has been established between them.
    That’s said, anyone who disagrees with her better make sure they’re ready to back up their arguments, because she certainly is. Well spoken and knowledgeable in an impressive variety of subjects, it’s hard to win an argument against this Shielder.

    I’ve blocked so many people on TMitter that my phone stutters when I try to open the list.
    What? ‘Isn’t this going to impact your income?’ Oh babe, you don’t have to worry.
    My real costumers are high profile, okay? They’re not the losers begging in my DMs.




    Phryne was a one of the wealthiest women in Greece. She was a courtesan, and a very successful one at that. These women were paid for their company and sexual favors, but were also expected to hold their own in conversation and etiquette, even when accompanying the most distinguished of clients.

    Phryne excelled in all aspects, even being asked by Praxiteles, the most celebrated Greek sculptor, to model for the statue of the platonic ideal of female beauty, Aphrodite.
    That same job was also a showcase of her smarts and personality. The courtesan insisted on being paid for her work, but Praxiteles held that modeling for a genius such as he was enough compensation. After much discussion, he relented and agreed to reward her work by giving her one of his sculptures.
    However, Phryne knew nothing of sculpting, and thus, didn't know which ones were there most valuable. When asking him, he insisted that he loved them all equally, so she instructed one of her servants to rush in and say that a fire had ignited in his workshop, destroying much of his work.
    When Praxiteles wept over the loss of his sculpture of Cupid, she promptly revealed the trick and chose that statue as her payment.



    Her cleverness, beauty and ego, qualities typically seen as self-serving, are instead evidences of her remarkable kindness. Phryne doesn’t just worry about her own status. Having the privilege of enjoying a relatively free and comfortable life compared to other women of her time only served to open her eyes, especially when she realized how much she still depended on the faces of the ruling class, as evidenced by the two most famous anecdotes of her life.

    First, she offered to pay for the repairs of the city walls of Thebes. Phryne was obscenely rich and the walls had been recently razed by Alexander the Great, leaving the city open to future attacks. She was worried about the wellbeing of the citizens of her hometown and wanted to leave a monument to her success. In return for the repairs, she only asked that the walls received an inscription, reading “Destroyed by Alexander the Great, rebuilt by Phryne the courtesan.
    Offended by the idea of being indebted to a courtesan, the city council rejected her offer and the walls laid ruined for decades still.

    Later on, Phryne was accused of impiety, a crime punishable by execution. The exact details of why she was accused were vague even for her. Perhaps because she dared model for the statue of a goddess, equating herself with the divine? No, surely the accusation was a reaction of men who couldn’t deal with a woman being richer and smarter than them.
    The arguments of her lawyer fell on preemptively deaf ears, and when she was about to be condemned, she tore open her own robe, exposing her bare breasts to the judges. Arguing that such beauty could only have been shaped by the gods themselves, and that destroying such a gift would be an even greater crime, Phryne was acquitted.
    Despite being relieved. Despite being glad that her beauty and quick thinking brought about justice, she could not get over how little these leaders cared about their own duties, and how easily they were swayed by fear, jealousy and lust.



    Phryne understands that, even now, the world is ruled by a small group that dictate the destiny of all bellow them, directly or indirectly. Being born poor and rising up on her own terms, she doesn’t feel like stopping even now, as a Servant.
    She wants to be even more famous, to have even more money, to awe even more men, all for the sake of herselfand others.
    The more she climbs up the social ladder, the more she can do for the people bellow her. Simply put: her wish is to put trickle-down economics in practice.
    Trickle-Down Economics is the theory that benefits to the wealthy and the increase of their income promotes economic growth, leading to similarly beneficial effects to all who are economically bellow them.
    A self-serving lie disguised as altruism, yet Shielder wants it to be genuine.

    You’re saying that it just doesn’t work? Of course not, I wasn't invovolved until now! Look, you just can’t trust the men in charge.
    I take the money of the powerful and distribute it as I see fit. I’m not climbing to the top of the pyramid, I’m staying in the middle to appease the top and help the bottom.



    Class Skills

    Magic Resistance D.

    A skill that grants protection against magical effects. Nullifies any magecraft of rank D and below.

    Phryne does not have a natural defence against mystics and should only be granted a low rank due to the possible uses of her Noble Phantasm. However, it has been ranked up due to the nature of her class.

    Riding A.

    A skill denoting the ability to ride mounts and vehicles. At this rank, there is almost nothing or no one she can't ride.

    Don't act dense, you know exactly how I got this one.

    Territory Defense EX.

    A power manifested to protect allies and ally territory. Applies damage reduction to those within the range.

    Phryne has been granted an EX rank at this skill due to its interaction with her NP's area of effect, allowing her to extend the defensive power to all who can see her. In exchange, the actual buff applied is not of the highest ranks, and she does not possess the ability to affect territories.


    Personal Skills

    Of Many Epiphets D.

    Mnesarete is her birth name, it was later left behind after she received the name Phryne in reference to her pale, yellowish skin. Not much is known about her life beyond its most notorious episodes, even leading some prosopographists to wrongly conclude that there were actually two Phrynes: One that also went by the names Clausigelos or Sestus, and another that went by Sarpedion or Thespian.
    This skill represents the elusive nature of Phryne, defined by iconic moments such as convincing a jury that her body was handcrafted by the gods, or when she sidestepped her lack of knowledge on sculptures by tricking Praxiteles.

    Phryne can change herself as she changed names, gaining benefits as long as she is able to trick the onlookers into believing that she already had them to begin with. For example, Phryne can recover from fatigue simply by acting lively, or acquire fighting capabilities by performing convingly enough fighting moves. These abiltiies are not acquired permanently, so sidestepping the difficulties of convincing enemy Servants by going after a regular person first is not possible.
    Yes, she's tried it.

    Courtesan of Prosperous Beauty A.

    A skill denoting a person possessing a great beauty that will aid, develop and improve a nation.

    A special version of Golden Rule (Wealth & Beauty). The ability to preserve one's beauty, acquire riches, and apply them to improve the livelihood of a community.
    The antithesis of a common occurrence in myth, a woman who uses all of her abilities to seduce and manipulate the rich in order to take control of a nation. Usually, these ruinous beauties are responsible for taking these leaders down the path of debauchery, leading to the collapse of their society.
    Here, her wiles might be the same, but the end result is the protection of the common people from the uncaring actions of the powerful.

    Discernment of the Rich C.

    The insight to see through a client's character and attribute. The power to grasp their true nature, acquired through careful observation by someone whose livelihood depended on their satisfaction.

    Phryne will never be deceived by the excuses and deceptions of those who are "wealthy enough to afford her". It's an ability that was essential to her survival and eventual success in life. It's true that the men of Greece respected and adored the hetairai — to a degree — but she still had to face much hardship on her way to such a position.


    Noble Phantasm

    Mnesarete Pandemos
    Gleaming Shield of Idealized Beauty
    .



    Type: Barrier
    Rank: C+


    Displaying beauty to safeguard herself. Constructing a wall for the sake of protection and her own enduring legacy.
    This Noble Phantasm is the crystallization of her legend and her desires, activated by a full display of her natural beauty. Shielder doesn’t need to be naked for it to take effect, but her hair color does go back to its original red color, bringing her closer to the divine appearance of Aphrodite.

    That said, Phryne often chooses to undress for it anyway.

    When did Praxiteles see me naked?” That is what Aphrodite herself said upon seeing the statue that Phryne had modelled for. Indeed, Phryne's was a beauty comparable to the goddess on many levels, and as such, this uncanny trait is the cornerstone of her powers as a Servant.
    Pandemos is one of the Epiphets of Aphrodite. Aphrodite Urania was the heavenly aspect of the goddess, pure and unreacheable, it represents spiritual love. Meanwhile, Aphrodite Pandemos is the earthly aspect, carnal love — experienced by the body. A goddess often viewed as young and inexperienced, not yet at the level of true spiritual love that transcends the body.
    The truth of this aspect is revealed in the meaning of its name, Pandemoscommon to all people. While Urania's cult was established by merchants and nobility, secluding the goddess to expensive temples and haughty notions of love, Pandemos is the goddess of the people. Worshipped by the common folk and founded by the hero Theseus by gathering different towns into a single community, it is no surprise that her temple's statue was paid for by the hetairai.

    Mnesarete Pandemos is the ultimate display of Phryne's soul. The rejection of the powerful through carnal love that benefits the community.

    Halos of light are manifested above the heads of those who can see her, as long as she chooses to protect them. These halos grant two buffs: mental influence immunity and massive damage reduction. The protections are strong enough to make the affected virtually immune to all forms of harm. The magical energy cost of sustaining these buffs is surprisingly minor, allowing her to keep them up indefinitely.
    The problem is that they are all reliant on her idealized beauty, meaning that desecrating it — by dirtying or hurting her body, for example — will weaken the buffs. In other words, if one wishes to hurt those Shielder is protecting, they must aim at her rather than them.

    If left to fend off for herself against the average Servant, the result is heart-breakingly obvious. Unable to sustain the cost of her own wishes, the protection of the people's goddess of love might prove as fragile as the wall she once failed to restore.

    And yet, she'd stand defiant and glamorous, ignoring the shattering halos.
    Glowing in a light so divine, yet distinctly human.

    Phryne: Like kids these days say, what a based sheet. Absolutely amazing, she's perfection, I literally don't have a single critique in mind. In fact, I don't have anything in my mind other than the wish that she... Maybe... Just maybe... Could step on me, perhaps. I'll be waiting.

    Phryne: Having done the only sheet of her until now I'll say this is very good. We both went for "self-improvement" as the focus of her personality but you took a more altruistic/community-focused angle of it which was interesting. Some good social-commentary in her character section without sticking out too much. Mnesarete Pandemos is a very creative take on Phryne's legend and I like the note that while not having to undress to use it she "often chooses to anyway". Truly a woman committed to the aesthetic.

    Good to hear your comments on her, Royd. Actually, I wonder how many other figures are still exclusive to you here?

    I have had a hell of a day and missed the moment she came out, but she's confirmed to be extremely fun. Making her an antithesis to Galatea is also incredibly inspired.

    Beast VI

    "I shall show you the truth of mankind.
    Empathy can only exist during times of prosperity-
    And just as man must consume those beneath him,
    So too shall I savor the fruits of man's labor."


    Beast VI - Beast of Consumption
    Stats
    Strength: C
    Endurance: A
    Agility: C
    Mana: EX
    Luck: B
    Noble Phantasm: A+++


    ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
    Passive Skills
    Authority of the Beast A
    An anti-Humanity type skill.
    A skill which renders useless any tools or techniques created by mankind. No matter how advanced an adversary is, soldiers within the Beast's armies will be treated as "overwhelmingly superior" in terms of individual combat prowess.
    It is not a measure of strength, but rather, simply the result of being from a more developed cultural sphere.
    Independent Manifestation C
    The ability to appear in this world separate from any sort of summoning system. The natural state of a god. Also grants immunity to instant death and time manipulation effects.
    So long as barriers exist between groups of people, her eventual appearance is inevitable.
    Nega-Culture A
    The dark shroud which destroys knowledge and faith.
    Black clouds cover the sky, preluding the Beast's arrival. Those caught beneath the clouds will be plunged into an age of darkness. The physical manifestation of cultural deterioration.
    Beneath these clouds legends are forgotten, or else warped beyond recognition. Those who draw power from legends, whether gods or monsters, will be reduced to nothing.
    Goddess Essence A-
    A skill denoting one as a perfect goddess since birth.
    A goddess of an ancient civilization. However, even she is not immune to being forgotten. As a result of her Beastly nature, this skill's rank has been lowered.

    Lore 1
    Origin: Near East Mythology
    Alignment: Chaotic Evil
    Attribute: Beast

    One of the candidates for the slot of Beast VI. She shares many traits in common with a former candidate, being both a "City Eater" and a "Beast of the Sea".
    Lore 2
    A goddess of the Philistine people, the ancient enemies of the Israelites.

    From the time of Abraham until the time of Judah, the Philistines and the Israelites were in constant war over the Promised Land. Notable conflicts included the capture of Samson and the battle between David and Goliath.

    The Philistines were eventually defeated during the Babylonian captivity, when the mad king Nebuchadnezzar II conquered and destroyed both of the warring kingdoms. While the Israelites managed to survive, the Philistines were wiped out, surviving only in the stories of their rivals.

    The term "Philistine" is often used to describe those who are violent and war-mongering, with little regard for the value of culture. As there are very few Philistine records or artifacts left remaining in the world, there's no way to disprove these accusations.
    Lore 3
    The most well known god in the Philistine pantheon is the Earth god, Dagon. However, Dagon was, in fact, a god from ancient Mesopotamia who was absorbed into their faith.

    Another goddess was worshipped since long before the occupation of the Promised Land. A goddess brought from the homeland beyond the sea. The her faith and functions had long since been forgotten by the time of Abraham, her name remains in whispers and fragments. PTGYH. The goddess lost to destruction.
    Personal Skills
    Nine Bows A
    The blessing of the goddess of war. The armies described as "those who none had ever known how to combat" were those under her care.
    Enhances the destructive power and combative spirit of allies and enemies alike. The gift of conflict.
    It can be likened to a form of Charisma. Really, though, it's the desperation of those who must fight to survive.
    Shardana A
    The Beast's crown.
    The nine horns represent the nine peoples within her care. "Beast fragments". So long as even one remains the other eight will grow back. The value of mass production is the availability of mass sacrifice.
    The sphere at the center of the crown represents the Beast's heart. Even should the armies be defeated, the destruction caused by them will leave any nation vulnerable to consumption.
    Va'eira A
    The divine authority of "Catastrophe". Though it represents the core nature of the Beast, the name is appropriated from the Abrahamic God.
    Darkness, Bolt, Flame, Quake, Tempest, Wave, Flood, Drought, and Pestilence. These are the plagues the goddess may inflict.
    Lore 4
    In Egypt there exists many records of invaders from the sea. The god-king Ozymandias managed to incorporate some of these peoples into his armies, but after his death they engaged in constant attacks upon Egypt and the rest of the Near East. Eventually they settled near Israel, becoming what would later be known as the Philistines.

    Ozymandias described them as monsters who none could withstand. Even when they lost battles, the damage done could leave their victims centuries behind. Babylonia, Greece, Troy, the Levant. They were all flung into Dark Ages. Of the ancient civilizations only Egypt survived- but their Golden Age had reached its end.

    The Sea People were not villains. Though they were responsible for the collapse of Near Eastern civilization, it was not out of malice but out of necessity. In their homelands, drought and pestilence had taken hold. To sit idly by was to accept death. To act was to condemn others to death. And so they made their choice.
    Noble Phantasm

    Tempest Therasios
    The Gods Express their Discontent

    Rank: A+++
    Classification: Anti-Continent
    Range: 1-500
    Maximum number of targets: 393 million


    The Beast's Noble Phantasm which reduces mankind to their most animal state. A survival-of-the-fittest type Noble Phantasm.

    Based on a volcanic eruption in mankind's distant past. The dark clouds of the catastrophe spanned from the peaks of Iceland to the plains of China, and devastated all civilizations of the period.

    Recreating the catastrophe, the goddess assaults her foe with thousands of tons of molten rock. Magma is all consuming; no creation of man can protect against it, and not even the gods can stop its onslaught. An attack wide-scale attack which cannot be defended against by any means. The only way to survive is to flee.

    The true dangers of the Noble Phantasm are the clouds of darkness spewed forth by the eruption. The black sky plunges the world into a volcanic winter, depriving all within of resources. Sunlight is blocked and mana is rapidly drained from all targets. The darkness can potentially enshroud an entire continent should the Beast go undefeated. Escape is impossible.

    Lore 5
    Consumption
    Altruism is a virtue only those with plenty can afford. When faced with a depravation of resources, to fight for the survival of all is to accept the death of all. In order for the most number of people to survive, the fat and the weak must be consumed. Of course, mankind can only achieve prosperity through cooperation. To destroy one's neighbor for self-survival is simply prolonging one's own death.

    Author's Notes

    Been a long time since I did a Servant here, but I had a huge flash of inspiration. And I've kind of been on a roll lately making smaller sheets elsewhere.

    This Servant is meant to represent the Bronze Age Collapse and its various causes. The Sea People in particular hold a lot of Mystery, so I made them the central focus of the kit. I do have a Grand in mind to counter this Beast, and I'll write them up if I have time later.

    W-What do you mean the Thera eruption was unrelated to the bronze age collapse? Details, details...

    By the way, the name of the Servant is PTGYH.

    《 ~~ ★ ~~ ★ ~~ ★ ~~ 》

    In Germany there was an opposition which was weakened in quantitative terms by its sacrifices and an irritating international policy,
    but which was one of the noblest and greatest to have been produced in the political history of all people.
    These men fought without help from within or from the outside, driven solely by the restlessness of their conscience.
    As long as they were alive, they were unrecognizable to us because they had to disguise themselves.
    But in the dead the resistance has become visible. These deaths cannot justify everything that happened in Germany.
    But their deeds and sacrifices are the indestructible foundation of the new construction.
    We hope for the time when only the heroic chapter of German internal history will find its just appreciation.



    "It is time to do something now. However, anyone who dares to do something must be aware that he will probably go down in German history as a traitor.
    But if he neglects to do so, he would be a traitor to his own conscience.
    I would not be able to look the women and children of the fallen in the eye if I did not do everything to prevent this senseless human sacrifice."

    "Greetings. I assume that you are my Master? I am pleased to make your acquaintance, I am Assassin,at your service. Please, if you do not mind, feel free to call me Claus. It is much more comfortable for me like that.

    Who am I exactly? I don’t expect you to know me, Master. But if you really wish to know, my full name is Claus Schenk Graf von Stauffenberg."

    《 ~~ ★ ~~ Class Skills ~~ ★ ~~ 》《 ~~ ★ ~~ Class Skills ~~ ★ ~~ 》
    Presence Concealment B
    The main skill of the Assassin class and denotes the ability to hide one’s presence. In his life, Assassin was able to infiltrate the inner circle of his target, Adolf Hitler. He was able to make changes to certain protocols that would make his planned eventual takeover easier and consort with a group of soldiers opposed to Hitler all without being discovered. As such, he has been given a fittingly high rank of Presence Concealment.

    "My ‘infiltration’ wasn’t truly an infiltration. I had already achieved a high rank in the military and was known to many high ranking officials, I had already gotten awards and medals for my work. I am sure my name was decently well known. It really isn’t as impressive as this makes it seem."


    《 ~~ ★ ~~ Personal Skills ~~ ★ ~~ 》《 ~~ ★ ~~ Personal Skills ~~ ★ ~~ 》
    Charisma of Hope D
    A certain type of Charisma that is given to those who spread hope through their words and actions. Not only was Assassin a military leader during his life and known for being a charismatic speaker, but through his assassination attempt, for a very brief moment, he managed to give any of those who silently opposed Hitler’s ruler but saw no way to fight against it a small bit of hope for the future, granting Assassin access to this skill.

    "Even though I never really liked it, I have always been very good at holding speeches and boosting morale. I suppose there always was some natural leader deep within me. I hoped that, if we failed, our actions would cause enough ripples to show the others that they could fight back against his iron grip. Sadly, out of all of the attempts in his life, ours remained the most successful, and the last."
    Powerless Shell A
    Though Assassin was an able soldier in his life, as a Servant he is capable of completely hiding his capabilities away. Instead appearing as nothing more than a cripple missing an eye, one hand and most of the other.

    In combination with his already comparably weak legend and his high Presence Concealment, detecting Assassin is practically impossible. Even if he were to begin to fight another Servant, Assassin would likely not be identified as a Servant himself, rather he would appear as something close to a human who is very good at fighting. The only thing that would immediately reveal him as a Servant is the use of his Noble Phantasm.

    "Compared to these legendary kings and warriors, I am only a small speck in the grand scheme of history. Hell… even during the time I was alive I really only brought it to one single memorable thing. But truthfully, if I was going to be remembered I would rather it be my one attempt at redemption than my prior years of ethical failings."
    Weak Constitution A
    Throughout his life, Assassin had always been known to have to fight with various illnesses and diseases, never was he ever really in good health. He was also seriously wounded in a low-flying air raid by Commonwealth troops in Tunisia in 1943. One bullet went through his left eye and embedded itself in his skull. On that day, he lost his left eye, his right hand and the middle and ring finger were so badly damaged that they had to be amputated.

    Normally, Assassin would be summoned in a state before he had sustained these injuries. However, he believes that these injuries in part caused him to realise the terrible error he had made in following the nazi regime. He refuses to materialise in any state that would lack these injuries.

    "How come I look like I have all my parts? Simple really. My right hand and my two fingers on the left are prosthetics. It is the reason that I typically walk around with gloves on. No need to show that around to everyone. You’ve also surely noticed that my left eye is a glass eye. My injuries are important to me, odd as that may sound, but I see no reason to be walking around exposing them to everyone else when I have the means to conceal them, it seems like bad manners to me. They are a problem of mine, not everyone else’s, as such I should be as discreet as I can about them."
    Wolf in der Wolfsschanze C
    A composite skill combining both the Subversive Activities and Tactics skill. Assassin was a brilliant military strategist, gaining high praise and awards for the theories he created. Assassin managed to move pieces into place masterfully so that once his assassination was successful the rest of the plan could be completed with only a single codeword. It could be said that the only reason Assassin was not successful was because of random chance.

    This skill, just like the Subversive Activities skill, has the downside of lowering a Servant’s status as a heroic spirit. In the case of Assassin, however, this downside could be considered as a benefit due to making it even more difficult to detect Assassin’s identity as a Servant.

    "I suppose it is only natural that I possess such a skill. I spent a long time working behind others’ backs, setting traps for them where I could and trying to destroy them from the inside. Anything was alright with me if it meant getting that man away from power. Were I still a religious man, I would say that I would certainly go to hell for all the lies I told during that time."

    "Unternehmen Walküre" was the protocol that Assassin and his allies had slowly been altering leading up to their assassination attempt. If it was executed, most of the structure of the state would change and place one of Assassin’s allies at the top of the country and make a large portion of the army directly subordinate to him. Assassin played a central part in this plan, as he was to place a bomb near their target that was supposed to kill him and was one of the most convinced of their plan in his own ranks.

    Upon its activation, this Noble Phantasm will create a well-disguised explosive device similar to the one used during the assassination attempt. It appears close to whatever target Assassin intends for it. For this, he requires to know where the intended target is. Once the target comes close enough to the explosive, it will detonate dealing heavy damage to the target and anything nearby. However, regardless of the strength of the Noble Phantasm, it is unable to actually kill the target. Others can be killed as a result of collateral damage, but the designated target itself is protected from death.

    Once the explosion occurred, not only will Assassin no longer be able to hide his identity as a Servant but the intended target also develops a certain hyper-awareness to his location, making it essentially impossible for Assassin to hide from the target.

    The true power of the Noble Phantasm, however, only comes when the target of the Noble Phantasm kills Assassin. In that case, any ally of Assassin, once they become aware of his death, will have their parameters increased by a large amount, particularly the attacking power of the affected Servant raises dramatically. This increase persists until the target of the Noble Phantasm has died.

    "I did what I did that day for many different reasons. We were losing the war and I, like many others, feared the wrath of vengeful soldiers that had lost family and friends would fall onto us once the allied armies fell into Germany. But, I suppose it was also an attempt at redemption. For almost ten years I had followed orders, I stood idly by as families were torn apart. I knew what was awaiting them after they were taken prisoner. I had seen it myself, but I still kept going. Utterly blinded by propaganda and hope for a bright German future. Now, I cannot imagine why it took me so long to recognise my moral failing."

    Shortly after it was confirmed that Hitler had not been killed by the bomb planted by Assassin, most of his allies and he himself were located, taken into custody and executed on the same day. Those who would be arrested a few days later would be given trials for the sake of propaganda, their death sentences were already certain before the trials began. Assassin’s and many of his allies’ families were captured and either killed or sent to work in concentration camps.

    Use of this Noble Phantasm, beyond revealing Assassin to the target, also slightly lowers his own parameters. Once the bomb detonates, his death is certain. The only hope he has is that the fallout, this time, turns out much more favourably than it did during the actual assassination.

    "I had even given the order sometimes… To execute innocent civilians or to have the carred off to one of our facilities where they would endure hellish suffering and then be painfully murdered. So much of their blood is on my hands as well and I fail to explain to myself how my conscience had not killed me by itself during those days. Do not get the wrong impression of me, Master. I am not a good person. I am not a hero, like so many others here. I am the villain."

    Born on November 15, 1907, in Jettingen in Bavarian Swabia, Claus Schenk Graf von Stauffenberg came from a traditional aristocratic family. His upbringing and youth were shaped by aristocratic ideas of honour as well as by a humanistic education and the intellectual-elitist, national-aristocratic ideas of the poet Stefan George.

    After graduating from high school, Stauffenberg joined the Reichswehr and was promoted to lieutenant in 1930. As a conservative patriot and soldier, he had initially welcomed Hitler's political course in 1933 as a national awakening and in particular, also supported the military and revisionist goals of the National Socialists. His military career progressed rapidly: in January 1943, he was promoted to lieutenant colonel, meanwhile on the Army General Staff. However, in view of the increasingly clear criminal nature of the Nazi regime and Hitler's military-strategic misconduct, Stauffenberg turned his back on the regime with increasing determination. In the spring of 1943, he was seriously wounded while serving in North Africa. His determination to offer active resistance and to overthrow Hitler's rule by force solidified and led to the planning of the assassination attempt on July 20, 1944.

    As chief of staff in the General Army Office, Stauffenberg took on a key position in the plans for the coup that were subsequently drawn up in increasing networking with other resistance groups and opponents of the regime. On July 20, 1944, he deposited a bomb in the "Wolfsschanze" headquarters and left the room just before the detonation. Not realizing that Hitler had survived the assassination attempt, he travelled to Berlin after his act to accompany the subsequent coup d'état. However, the hesitant start of the actions had given the leading representatives of the Nazi regime time to take swift countermeasures: The 36-year-old Stauffenberg was arrested and executed on the night of July 20, 1944, in the courtyard of the Bendler Block in Berlin for high and treason. His family was held in clan custody, his wife Nina was deported to the Ravensbrück concentration camp and his children were sent to a children's home.

    For a long time, Stauffenberg was denied recognition as a resistance fighter in the young Federal Republic. It was not until the 1960s that the commemoration of the resistance fighters of July 20, 1944, as a symbol of the "other Germany" that opposed the crimes of National Socialism changed.

    "I liked many things in life. I was very gifted in architecture. Had it not been for the brewing war, I think I never would have become a soldier and would instead have pursued some career in that field. I was quite gifted in the arts as well. One of my and my brother’s idols and friends was Stefan George, a known poet. He even dedicated two of his poems to my brother. That was always a great point of pride for him. He and I both flourished in these fields. Our mother was always delighted when we played songs for her."

    "Well… I am sure just about anything I could answer here has already gone through your head, hasn’t it? Hitler, nazis, war. I’m sure you already expected all of that, and you would be right as well. Only, I do not think I can rightly say those things. I worked with them, after all. I worked with them willingly, for almost a decade of my life. Almost a third of my life I spent repeating their ideologies like a parrot, slaughtering and capturing in their name. The worst part is that I was proud of it. I was proud to work for them and follow their orders. So, what right do I have to villanise them?"

    Wish for the Grail
    "There are so many things I could wish for. I could wish for the second World War never starting, I could wish that my assassination attempt had been successful, if I were very spiteful I could wish of Hitler never having been born, or I could selfishly wish to never be crippled during the war. So many things I could wish for… I’d just wish that I had gotten clarity earlier. Maybe, if I recognised the atrocities we committed, if I saw how dangerous he was, maybe I could have done something in time?

    "Would it surprise you, Master, if I told you that I like warfare? I had always been interested in it. It is so complicated, so intricate, it is almost an art form in itself. So much nuance goes into formulating strategy in war, it is like composing a music piece. Perhaps the adrenaline rush of fighting added to this as well. Being a soldier is intoxicating, in an entirely different way than even fighting those Beasts. But to think… so much suffering, so much blood, all for what? Power? The rush of adrenaline? I curse myself now, because even in death the addiction to war is still rooted deep in my soul. "

    "I used to speak highly of people who were loyal and faithful. People who had the courage to put their trust in another seemed respectable to me. Now, that I myself blindly laid my trust into another, I see that these are not the mark of a great man, but the mark of a coward who is too scared to think on their own and choose their own life. I, we all, followed him and his propaganda machine like brainless morons! And see where it got all of us, what good did our blind faith do?"

    Wish for the Grail
    "In perfect honesty, Master. I do not know if I would even wish anything upon the grail if I ever were to somehow get to it. What right do I have to have my wish fulfilled after all I have done? After all the pain I caused, I would say that I wouldn’t deserve a thing. I’m a villain who looked in the mirror one day and noticed that he was the villain, a bad person trying their hardest not to be. I have no claim to the grail and, if you were to ever obtain one, I would be much obliged if you gave it to someone other than me. Someone more deserving."

    "You are one of the ones tormented and hounded by us… I do not think anything I could say would help mend the wounds we must have inflicted, but do know that I am eternally sorry. Should you ever require anything at all, regardless of what it is, say the word and I shall assist you with everything I have. I think that is the least I can do."
    Erwin Rommel
    "Sometimes I wonder how things would have been if we had been successful. It was our plan to instate her in Hitler’s place after his death. Would it really have made that much a difference? Could we have washed the blood of our country’s hands? Sadly, to indulge in such possibilities is not going to get us anywhere, nor is it going to clear our consciences."
    Heinrich Himmler
    "That man… He is less a man than he is some foul, cruel creature! He was blinder than I was for the longest time. So blindly faithful had Hitler commanded he shoot himself, he would have done it without hesitation. I suggest, Master, you keep us apart at all times. I cannot guarantee that we would not fight with each other."
    Adolf Hitler
    "You deserve a much more severe punishment than this. And to you, innocent spirits. I truly am sorry. I do not doubt that many of you were condemned to your torture by my commands. I do not know how long or how much it will take for my conscience to be cleared, but I hope that, maybe one day, you can forgive me."


    Author's Note
    Today I proudly present to you: This-is-not-a-Servant, the Servant - Claus von Stauffenberg

    I wonder how well-known Stauffenberg is outside of Germany. Here he's rather well known, as a figure of the Second World War. I sure hope he isn't considered some war celebrity and I ended up doing that a huge disservice with the whole "This isn't a Servant" gimmick.

    I just realized that pinetree’s phryne is basically a skeleton. She’s 205 Centimetres and 48 kilogram. It’s a nitpick but still kinda funny to me.
