I had one in mind, but then I figured this would be much more fun. Had to surf the Fate wikia. If anyone has suggestions/criticism, please share.

Bruce Lee


Summoning Catalyst: The first printed copy of ''Fists of Fury''
Class: Berserker
Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
Stats
Strength: A+
Endurence: B
Agility: A+
Magical Energy: D
Luck: C
Noble Phantasm: B++

Class Abilities
Mad Enhencement B: Ranks up for all parameters, but takes away most of the sanity
Magic Resistance D: Cancel Single-Action spells. Magic Resistance of the same degree of an amulet that rejects magical energy.

Personal Skills
Chinese Martial Arts: A value that measures one's mastery of the martial arts that made becoming one with the universe as its objective. Its difficulty to learn is of the highest level and, unlike other Skills, it is at A Rank that one is at a level where he is said to have finally "learned it".
A+++: At this point, one is a master among masters.

Noble Phantasm
Fists of Fury: When activated, he reaches combat abilities that can only be described as superhuman. He predicts the opponent's next move by accurately studying their body language, meaning laying a single hit on him will prove difficult. In addition, he can pinpoint the enemy's weakest spot and strike it many times at lightning speed. His leg power increases as well, giving him destructive kicks and insane agility.

Major Weaknesses
As one would expect from a martial artist, while he is a major threat at close range, his power is neglectable when the opponent fights from a distance, although he can close the gap providing he is aware of their positions. His magical defense is also rather mediocre, meaning that in a battle against the likes of Caster, the outcome may very well be determined by the first move While his physical defense is by no means bad, he is still less durable than the majority of the Berserker class; he is more about dodging strikes than taking them head on, which can potentially make him a target for the Assassin class. He is, more or less, a glass canon.

Likes
Philosophy, cinema and training

Dislikes
Racism, fake Kung-Fu movies and trespassers

This was pretty fun to compile. I think I got a good servant here I'm so screwed

Caster

Name: Hiernonymous Bosch (Jeroen van Aken)
Home: the Netherlands
Alignment: Neutral Good
Catalyst: A self-portrait that was stolen.

An Early Renaissance artist known for his imaginative and surreal works. Not much is known of this spirit other than being a member of the Brotherhood of Our Lady in 's-Hertogenbosch, and hailing from a family of artists. His works have been interpreted to be allegories intended to teach moral lessons to those who see them, but the original thoughts and intentions of the artist are unknown or lost in history. Symbolism and iconography is very prevalent in just about every piece he's done. It is thought by some that his works were an inspiration for Surrealism in the early 20th century.

It should be noted that this servant is unsuitable for battle. He's also not particularly thrilled to be summoned, especially as a Caster.

Likes: morally good people, birds, art (his definition of it), symbolism, looking for deeper meanings, being a "teacher" figure
Dislikes: Close-minded people
Weaknesses: Would get absolutely wrecked in actual battle. Like seriously. Spare the kind old man with your mercy!

Stats

Strength: E
Agility: E
Luck: C
Mana: A+
Endurance: B
Noble Phantasm: C

Skills

Class skills
Territory Creation: B
Creation of a workshop is possible. More art will be shared with the world!

Item Creation: B
In Caster's case, this measures his ability to create ambitious works of art in a short amount of time. He likes making altarpieces and polyptryches.

Personal Skills
Eye for Art: B
He can identify the heroic spirit based on their appearance. Whether he can do anything about it...well, that is

Zwanenbroederschap: B
A spirit's affinity to birds. Symbolically, this is a form of Independent Action. Also, it's an immunity against attacks from birds.

Noble Phantasm(s)

The Garden of Earthly Delights (A+) Anti-Unit
Named after his most famous work in life. This Noble Phantasm plays with the mind of the enemy by exposing them to their greatest fear or worst temptations. The greater sins the enemy opponent has committed, the stronger the hold of the Noble Phantasm is. It will take a great deal of mental fortitude to escape the grasp of the Noble Phantasm. Ineffective on those without fear or temptation (YOU AREN'T HUMAN!). Surreal imagery as a representation of the vices is a given.

It was a good idea too. I think some people were scared off after seeing these huge posts here. It's sad, I really liked reading about people's interpretations of a favorite historical figure.

Also, why didn't I think of Bruce Lee? *facepalm*

Ok, time for who I would WANT to summon...

ORRIN PORTER ROCKWELL


For those who don't know about him, he was probably the greatest American Old-West legend ever!

To describe his looks, imagine a pissed off Hagrid from Harry Potter wearing a triple thick bearskin cloak, riding a large horse with the reigns in his mouth in order to wield dual colt pistols with the trigger guards filed off, a large rifle that bore his name on his back, and a chip on his shoulder filled with the regret of not being able to save the life of his best friend.

"[Porter Rockwell] was that most terrible instrument that can be handled by fanaticism; a powerful physical nature welded to a mind of very narrow perceptions, intense convictions, and changeless tenacity. In his build he was a gladiator; in his humor a Yankee lumberman; in his memory a Bourbon; in his vengeance an Indian. A strange mixture, only to be found on the American Continent."

A little history lesson
For those interested. (Seriously, everyone should learn about this guy)


As a Heroic Spirit


Summoning Catalyst: A lock of his hair, one or both of his colt pistols, or his rifle. The more possessed, the greater the chance for a summon. At least 2 of the 4 are required if one desired him to be a Berserker.

Class: The colors signal the change in stats and abilities between classes.
Rider - Utilizes his horse with the reigns in his mouth, and favors his twin Colt Pistols.
Archer(Marksman) - Favors the Rockwell, his rifle.
Berserker - Dual wields the Rockwell in one hand and one Colt in the other.

Alignment: Chaotic Lawful Good

Stats
Strength - A B A+
Endurance - A A+
Agility - D C B
Magical Energy - D D-A++ (See Noble Phantasms)
Luck - C
Noble Phantasm - A



Class Abilities:

Independent Action (Archer only)
Rank B - Can survive without supplication of mana from a master or other sources for 3 days.

Magic Resistance
Rank D - Protection from single action spells
Rank C - Protection up to 2 verse spells
Rank E - No protection, but spell's effects are weakened

Riding (Rider only)
Rank A - Proficiency to ride everything except Phantasmal and Divine Beasts. The abilities of lower class mounts are drastically increased. The mount he chooses shares in his protection (see Noble Phantasms) so long as he is riding it.

Mad Enhancement (Berserker only)
Rank C - Enhances all parameters but Luck and Magical Energy. Despite being mad, Porter's tenacity weakens the effect of the madness to a degree. He keeps his sense of justice, but it becomes twisted. Where before he would never harm someone not involved in the war, when maddened he makes an effort to kill and steal the souls of human criminals or other wrong doers as punishment for their crimes, even if the crimes are minimal. (See Noble Phantasms)

Personal Abilities:

Heroic Defender of the State
Rank A - Able to mark a large region as his personal dominion by securing the surrounding leylines. Any time a servant exhibits harmful intent to an innocent human, Porter is immediately informed of the location. As Rider, this location can be reached almost immediately using the leylines as a conduit.
Rank A+ - Heroic become Demonic. The region now reports harmful intent of anyone, human and spirit alike. These people now become Porter's targets in his mad State.

Intimidation
Rank A - Any heroic spirit below "Charisma", "Eye of the Mind", or "Constitution" skills of rank B or a Magical Resistance rank A will receive movement speed and reaction time reductions when being looked at. Those without either of these abilities recieve a much stronger penalty, even preventing retreat from battle. Considered a "Magic Eye" ability.

Marksman
Rank B - Heroic Spirits with an agility rank less than B will be unable to avoid attacks made by Porter's firearms.
Rank A - Attacks made by Porter's firearms cannot be avoided unless matched with the "Protection from Projectiles" skill of the same rank. Otherwise, these attacks must be blocked by magic, shields, or other means.

Noble Phantasms

Sampson
Barrier Phantasm Rank A
So long as Porter Rockwell keeps his faith and does not cut his hair, he gains immunity from physical attacks, but is still susceptible to magical attack. The exemption from this is his hair which can take physical damage but is immune to magical attacks.
When Berserk, this Phantasm is lost as if denying his god, leaving his Bearskin Cloak as his main protection. In return, Porter receives another Noble Phantasm in it's place.

Destroying Angel (Berserker only)
Self Anti-Person Phantasm Rank A
In Porter's maddened state, he becomes the spirit of lawful vengeance. He targets anyone who has the intention to do wrong. Using his Demonic Defender of the State, he is able to detect even the desire to cause harm, whether servant or human. These people become his targets. If human, he devourers their souls. This has the effect of increasing his Magical Capacity the more criminal souls he eats, instead of just refilling it or creating extra stores. This increase can extend as far as A++ given enough souls. A higher Magical Energy capacity enables him to heal himself more, fight much longer, and used his weaponry with reckless abandon. Given his high endurance, with this he can outlast most servants, beating them to exhaustion if unable to overpower them.

Triple-Thick Bearskin Cloak
Barrier Phantasm Rank C
Bearskin was classic mountain-man bulletproofing. Porter's cloak consists of three times the thickness, giving heavy protection. This protection is enhanced now that the cloak has become a Noble Phantasm. It can protect against C rank weaponry and harbors a Magic Resistance of rank B. Being an item, it can be given to his master for protection as it is only needed by Porter when he has lost his hair or has been summoned berserk. Being extremely heavy, unless the master has similar build, it is likely they would not be able to move well with it.

Advantages and Weaknesses
Due to Porter Rockwell not having a weapon Noble Phantasm, his offensive capabilities are lesser than some Heroic Spirits. His strength lies in his high defense, being close to invulnerable in his life. When berserk, some of his defenses are dropped for much higher combat ability.

His main weakness when not berserk is his hair. With it heavily damaged, he loses this protection, making him as vulnerable as his berserk counterpart with none of the benefits. Due to lower agility, it would not be too hard for an agile opponent like Lancer or Assassin to damage it. Hair aside, Porter still has to rely on his Magic Resistance, which is not high, and Bearskin Cloak for protection against magic.

Grail Wish
To get a second chance at either protecting the life of his friend or dying with him.

Maybe some people were scared off by some of the intense replies we've gotten. And here Ive done one myself...

If anyone has more, feel free to create other interpretations!

I don't think he would just use it to screw anyone over. But then again, I would most likely summon him in his senior years, and he might be one of those guys who get crabby over the years. He might be a bit volatile...

Aw well, just avoid fighting us then.

Wow, everyone's answers are so detailed.

Personality-wise, I'm most compatible with Assassin because I like to lurk around in the dark and people tend to not notice me when I walk up behind them haha.

For combat, I would prefer the Archer class. Fighting from afar sounds perfect to me. Plus, I'm lazy so if they could take care of everything without my presence, I'm all for it.

To be honest, I think most people would agree...
