Rider's True Names are Anne Bonny (アン・ボニー, An Bonī?) and Mary Read (メアリ・リード, Meari Rīdo?), female pirates who existed during the Golden Age of Piracy. They are members of the most famous pirates in history, and they are extremely unique pirates. They were two female pirates on board the pirate ship Calico Jack lead by a man named John Rackham.
One person was Anne Bonny. She was the daughter of a wealthy person, born into a prosperous household, but was a natural hooligan. In the end, she eloped with a good-for-nothing man, a small-time punk. She would later separate from said punk and joined with John Rackham and his pirate group, raising a pirate flag together.
And the other person was Mary Read. She was working on a Dutch ship after disguising herself as a man and slipping into the ship as one, before on a certain day, as she was in the process of working, she was captured by Rackham’s pirate group and was forced to become one of their crew members. In her household, she was originally raised as a male by her mother, so it seems that she has fitted into the piracy business.
Anne Bonny would meet Mary Read upon capturing the ship from Holland, and having met by chance, the two endeavored as pirates under the command of captain John Rackham. Mary Read fought boldly together with Anne Bonny whom she personally shared her secret of being a woman. Thanks to the fact that they were both women, Anne and Mary got along well, forming a duo and devoting themselves to the piracy business. The two are close friends, comrades in arms, linking a powerful bond between them that goes beyond passions such as romantic love.
It was the same in their last battle. When John Rackham’s pirate group have anchored in Jamaica, they received an attack from privateers (they are ships permitted to snatch away enemy cargos, and it is possible to say that they are state-authorized pirates). It is said that Anne Bonny and Mary Read are the only two people that fought to the end while John Rackham and his subordinate men became frightened and hid inside their ship’s hatch. A testimony left behind said that one among the two fired her pistol into the ship’s hatch while shouting “Come out and fight like men!” In the end, Rackham and his group were arrested without having fought back, and the two female pirates were finally captured after a fierce battle. There are many testimonies that, among those in John Rackham's ship. those two fought with greater dauntless courage than anybody else.
Mary Read died while suffering from a fever in the middle of her imprisonment, while it was said that Anne Bonny escaped due to her father’s moves. At that time, Anne informed John Rackham with a scornful look in her eyes: “If you had fought like a man, you need not have been hang’d like a dog.”… The name John Rackham remained in pirate history. However, the reason is not because of his own bravery and atrocities he committed, but as “the shameful coward who was the captain of the ship that had on board, two rare female pirates named Anne Bonny and Mary Read.”
A passionate, beautiful woman. She loves Mary dearly as a close friend, family member and younger sister. She has a character with a daredevil attitude and a wealth of experience, able to treat men skillfully, and she possesses a lively courage that brings shame to men, who is “not afraid of even death, greeting it with a laugh.” It is said that a portion of her “core” is heroic. Anne is very friendly to others unconditionally.
A young woman who talks with her mouth in murmurs and with few words. Fundamentally, she has a quaint and ladylike character, but because she was raised as a man, she is forced to be tough and strongly masculine and hides her “core” that is feminine. She is a little rebellious against authority, and fights with a dauntless courage on the battlefield regardless of her relationship to either gender. Mary is initially hard to approach while eventually "becoming more emotionally attached than anybody else upon opening her heart."
Both together takes into consideration of their Master and if they are of the “same class” as them. They are fundamentally a little rebellious, especially even more so if their partner is a person of the bourgeois class. They have no problem with people such as the naïve Shirou or with Rin who is neutral towards the authorities, but they feel that what they call "the worst compatibility" is being partnered with someone like Tokiomi.
As female pirates identical to her, they show their respect to her.
As pirates identical to him, they declare their intent to kill him.

They are reluctantly part of Blackbeard's crew, disgusted by his perverted nature like all the other women. They participate in both battles against Ritsuka's party, sailing atop Francis Drake's ship. They contribute greatly to the first battle and are defeated in the second battle.

Anne is an expert with the rifle, carrying a long-barreled Blunderbuss. Her expertise is denoted with the Marksmanship Skill; Anne Bonny's shooting ability is to the extent of perfectly hitting a target with a musket, even while on top of a shaking ship. Mary carries a cutlass wrapped in a red cloth due to having been in charge of raiding ships. In Fate/Grand Order, the two have been exceptionally summoned as a single set Servant. There are no penalties towards their statuses, but if one collapses, the other will also become unable to fight as well, no matter the circumstances. Since they are regarded as a single Servant, Parameter abilities are determined by picking up the best values among the two of them.
Their Riding Skill has been lost due to their 'Voyage' Skill, a Skill denoting one's steering techniques for a ship. Because it is specialized for ships only, it is impossible for one to ride horses or chariots. As expected of reputable pirates, both of them are prodigious.
Their Noble Phantasm is Caribbean Free Bird, a combination Noble Phantasm in which Anne - who has equipped a musket - covers for the cutlass-wielding Mary. Their Noble Phantasm also receives a great influence from their Combination Skill. No matter what sort of severe battlefield, they will be able to grasp each other's actions with a single gaze and then take the most suitable move.
Anne Bonny and Mary Read. An uncommon pair of female pirates, but this time, they appear carefreely in swimsuits. With a "Bonny!" feeling, Anne assaults the Master in a high exposure degree swimsuit, while Mary sulks in dere with a physique that has a "Read!" feeling - turning into a pincer attack.
What Anne Bonny and Mary Read wish for more than anything is "an existence they can rely on," "a comrade they can fight together with." In that regard, Chaldea's Master had a passing grade and they are quite attached to him... still, in the words of an anonymous princess - "Isn't it against the rules to arbitrarily sneak into My Room?"
