Caster

Name: Hiernonymous Bosch (Jeroen van Aken)


This is brilliant. Ah, I love art history


Thanks. Bosch left a lasting impression on me for some reason, so I went with him over some other really good ones like El Cid.

Well, I have more of an affinity I guess with the Archer class heroes.

I love tricksters, and Odysseus would be awesome (he's an archer, for those who might not know. His final test when he finally arrived home was to string hs bow, which was unbending for any other man and to fire it. A test set by his wife to identify him as truly being himself). His noble phantasm... There's so many things it could be.. The cyclops, scylla and charybdis... but I think it would probably be the trojan horse, and somehow incorporate that he was a king and leader of armies (his own nation and that of the trojan army). I could see him also mixed with Achilles in the Fate universe, and being given neigh invincibility (which is actually ascribed to Achilles) due to his long ass journey (much like hercules was given multiple lives because of his labors) due to their roles together in the trojan war.

But then I also have to admit, how the series portrayed both gilgamesh and Archer were also incredibly fitting for my personality. Gilgamesh's being "king of kings" and his superiority complex could fit some of my personality at times.. But Archer.. he has a bit of a trickster's personality too, and he has an indomitable spirit that I feel a kinship to.. that try and try till you succeed or die mentality. And his noble phantasm, it being about imagining a reality and bringing it into existence. The desolation of his private world, and the weapons wrought of his own body.. That fits me well.

We would possibly toss Faust into the mix. An interesting choice for the Caster class, and a noble phantasm would obviously be Mephistopheles and could open the gates of hell, commanding various demons...

But a trickster he is not...

What about St. George as a Lancer or Rider class? Perhaps a Rider would fit him better, mirroring the other Rider, Medusa, and possessing the Phantasm of the Dragon.

Ehhh... I'll stick with the original Archer.

If Emiya Kiritsugu became a noble spirit and I could use him as my servant, I would.

I had a lot of fun compiling this and had to do some research on my servant. It did take awhile to type all this up though. xD. If the Thread Contest starts up again, you have my vote for this amazing thread.

Heroic Spirit
CYRUS THE GREAT
Summoning Catalyst- The Mage must set up a summoning circle to where he places the Cyrus Cylinder. The Mage then gives a small amount of blood and then says Isaiah 45:1. Isaiah 45:1(ERV) ““I took you by your right hand to help you defeat nations, to strip other kings of their power, and to open city gates that will not be closed again.
Class- Rider: Cyrus was a great conqueror, who had created the largest world empire the world had yet to see, with an empire that stretched from the Mediterranean Sea to the Indus River. Do to his great conquering and strategic skills he was given the class of Rider.
Alignment- Neutral Good.
Command Seal- The Command Seal is that of a bird(pictured below). First Command causes the circles to disappear. Second Command causes the wings and tail to disappear. Third Command causes the bird’s body to disappear.

Weapon- Cyrus the Great uses a curved sword for his main weapon. However even though he is not of the archer class he does have some familiarity with a bow and arrow.
Stats:
Strength: A
Defense: C
Endurance: B-
Agility: B
Magical Energy: D
Luck: C+
Noble Phantasm: A+
Class Abilities:
Riding- Rank B: This ability allows Cyrus the Great to ride nearly any type of mount. Normal mounts are easy to control and does not waste any mana. However special mounts take up a lot of mana and can be harder to control.
Normal Mounts: 100% Control Rate
Special Mounts(Without mana or very little mana): 45% Control Rate
Special Mounts(With sufficient mana): 90% Control Rate
Magic Resistance:Rank C-: Able to resist single action spells and a 15% to resist immobilizing spells
Personal Abilities:
Strategic Planning- Rank B+: Cyrus the Great was known for his military strategy. This ability allows him to see all possible outcomes of battle. However it does not allow him to see what exactly the enemy will do. Depending on how much mana is used will determine the success rate.
Command and Conqueror- Rank C-: This personal ability increases Cyrus’s abilities by 1 if his enemy is stronger than him. However if the enemy and Cyrus the Great are balanced nothing happens.
Liberation- Rank C: This ability allows Cyrus the Great to be immune to any control spells casted by the enemy. It also allows Cyrus to set free anyone controlled by the enemy( the controlled person must be struck by Cyrus’s sword, but it does not harm them if they are being controlled). The setting the controlled person free has a 65% success rate.
Noble Phantasm:
All the King’s Men- Rank A+: Cyrus’s Phantasm increases all his stats by 2 and allows him to call forth The Immortal to fight alongside him. This Phantasm takes a great deal of mana and should only be used when there is no other option.
Advantages and Weaknesses:
Cyrus the Great is an offensive strategist that likes to plan out everything before heading into battle. However he proves weak when the enemy is unpredictable. If he is unable to learn his enemy his chances of winning are greatly decreased. If there is no clear winner in the first battle against the enemy, Cyrus is then able to gather the information if needed.
Grail Wish:
To not have died in battle and able to continue conquering.

I don't know enough about Aries to say yes or no, and I'm no authority on what can and can't be called as a Servant, so it's all good by my book.



Gods are beyond the ability of the Holy Grail to summon and control, and furthermore the amount of energy it would take is stated as being enough to render the Holy Grail itself superfluous. There are certain divine entities that can be summoned like Chiron, Medusa, or Tamamo no mae, but in all cases there was something done to alter their divine status.

Why not the Saint Longinus, lancer class.
The spear seals the noble phantasms of others when it pierces them, though, that doesn't necessarily have to be his.
give him instead, stations of the cross, A series of unhealing wounds that will, eventually, result in death.

Heroic Spirit
CYRUS THE GREAT



Researching the person is the largest part of the fun for me! I knew a lot about Porter Rockwell before I made mine, but I still spent a couple hours researching and typing it up. I'm definitely doing more when I have time!

And thanks!


btw, I'm adding Cyrus to the Notable Mentions on the first page.
