“Eh? You hear a weird voice from time to time? Huh, I wonder what that could be? Orion's got no idea~☆”
Archer's True Name is originally portrayed by her as being Orion (オリオン, ?) in her profile, written in first person by Archer, while saying that she doesn't know the origin of the weird voice that can sometimes be heard around her. She is later revealed to be Artemis (アルテミス, Arutemisu?) the Moon Goddess and Goddess of the Hunt of Greek Mythology, and that weird voice is the actual Orion in the form of a small bear.
Artemis is a pure virgin goddess that would unfailingly shoot through those who sought to attain the magical power that pulls the tides and causes them to rise, the link to the moon's movements, and simultaneously granting these infidels death and disease. She is one of many goddesses whose power is derived from the Earth Mother.
As the "Goddess of the Hunt", Artemis was the divine protector of Atalanta, and granted her the bow Tauropolos, named for one of Artemis' epithets. She lent her power to the Noble Phantasm Phoebus Catastrophe along with Apollo. She taught the skill of hunting to Chiron as one of his many lessons from the gods.
“Orion is famed as the hunter that represents the winter constellation, and he's just the most perfect, eloquent, and handsome man around. He even put an arrow through that goddess Artemis' heart. Kya~☆”
Famous as a winter representative constellation, but other than being a notorious hunter and lady-killer, it is not like a brilliant heroic tale about Orion is being transmitted. However, he is well known as the human with whom the virgin goddess Artemis fell in love.
Artemis is one of the goddesses of the Twelve Olympians, born as a child of Zeus and as the younger sister of Apollo. She was a virgin goddess that governs chastity and hunting, and her eyes towards the opposite sex were twice as relentless towards humans beings, such as killing a hunter that was thoughtlessly peeking at her bathing, etc.
Why is she like that, of all things? It all started when she fell in love with the hunter Orion, a child of Poseidon who garnered fame as a playboy at that time. Usually, if it was another goddess, Orion would have fallen in love and if possible, take her back to his home immediately. But when it's towards Artemis, why does his defensive instincts come into play? He refrained from taking her hand immediately.
Nonetheless, the rumor of Orion and Artemis' rendezvous ascended to the heavens, and the talk of these two getting married was being spread around.
Apollo, the Sun God and her elder brother, did not permit it. Apollo was aware. Of the nature of "it can't be helped" belonging to the man named Orion. But Artemis did not lend her ear to Apollo's warning. So Apollo drafted a plan, perceiving from afar Orion, who was swimming, and provoked Artemis by saying "aim and bring down that scoundrel named Candaon." Naturally, Artemis aimed at the head of Orion—and magnificently shot through him. The next day, Artemis became aware of his death and grieved. She attempted to restore him back to life, but it was not granted. Inevitably, he was ascended to the sky and became a celestial body.
And yet, Orion indeed did not learn from his lesson, quarreling with Artemis who came to meet him occasionally, and being beaten half to death after being exposed by Artemis for having an affair.
... This time, sensing the crisis that would result in the usual Holy Grail Wars to be held for the restoration of the Human Order, Artemis accomplished the materialization of her form by thrusting herself into Orion's summoning... Although, that is just half the reason. The other remaining half is the opportunity to express her feelings bravely, said to be her making out with Orion to her heart's content.
... Wait, bravely?
Artemis takes an appearance of a young woman with round blue eyes and long white hair, with the bottom of her hair attaches to a large circular ornament. She wears long white dress with red tip at the bottom, a silver necklace, and a pair of sandals. Like her origin, Artemis wield large bow which is capable of firing arrows made of pure energy as a weapon. According to the comment by the characters, this form appears to not be her original form from the Age of the Gods, but instead was changed possibly due to Orion's influence. In her later ascensions and during Noble Phantasm's animation, Artemis switch to a short revealing red dress.
The height and weight belong to Artemis. Her bust size doesn't affect her bow firing ability.
Instead of taking form of a man, Orion appears as a small brown bear with black eyes (which turns red when he's angry) wearing an outfit resembles the one worn by cavemen and wields a small club as a weapon. To make matters worse, Orion completely changed into a strange creature (mascot character) that cannot be defined as neither a person nor a beast.
Artemis basically takes up a neutral position towards the Master. However, because she is a goddess, no matter how great the Master is, she always take up a higher position in their relationship standing. Orion's role is to pacify Artemis and the Master. Fundamentally, Orion has no power, so he tries to curry favor with the Master.
Initially introduced as a loving maiden on a stroll in her quest for dango, Artemis is a virgin goddess at an age similar to where one falls in love with romance. Given that this goddess is a happy-go-lucky person, she has almost no regard for human life. Fundamentally, Orion's role is to keep her in check, and she personally dislikes more than anything else the words called "patience" and "preserverance". In addition, she is an utmost fangirl of everything sweet—and especially shows that enthusiasm wholeheartedly and with all of her energy towards her darling Orion. With the exception of Orion, Artemis has no interest in the opposite gender, but she really gets into love stories regardless of it being heterosexual or homosexual.
“Theft begins with lies. Womanizing begins with handsomeness. Romance begins with Orion.”
A notorious playboy in the olden days from the present. After being shot to death by Artemis, due to her actions, Orion became adorable (... adorable?) as he was transformed into a mascot character. Characteristically, Orion is lazy and irresponsible, yet he is shrewd too, occassionally evading Artemis' accusations of having an affair splendidly. In relation to Artemis, as he is in the vicinity of her trying to have an affair that will breach their relationship, it can be said to be a feeling that he is constantly in danger for being unfaithful. They are less like a married couple, and more like lovers who similarily cannot avoid each other, and yet likewise, they can avoid each other. However, in the case Artemis falls into a crisis, he is resourceful to a degree to come to her aid, even being truly reckless in doing so.
Orion is dumbfounded towards Artemis' passionate approach, and there is a chance he will make an attack on various women and female Servants, but sadly he is just a mascot character after all, so it is all futile. Furthermore, there is also the fact that he is not cute enough to be called a mascot. Since Orion is an irresponsible lady-killer that likes women and flirting, he has a better affinity with a male Master whom he can repetitively amuse himself in foolish talks.
- A heroine that believed in Artemis. "All right, I'll give you full of blessings! But nowadays, I feel you did something far away from my eyes."
- "Altera, is it that Altera? If so, then she is our natural enemyyyy!... Eh? She's different? She is different from the Altera of that time? Excavated from ruins? What, I-I don't understand it at alllll!"
Artemis was summoned while having Orion as an accessory. To make a correction however, that is the opposite. Upon summoning Orion, a hero of Greek Mythology, for some reason, the goddess Artemis also came along. Harboring uneasiness towards the abnormality of the present situation, Artemis trespassed by wedging herself into Orion's summoning. She is fulfilling the role of an Archer-class Servant.
Do Moon Goddesses Dream of Dango?Edit
Orion and Artemis are first encountered by Ritsuka and Mash while they're fighting a pack of werewolves after the Chaldea pair arrive in the Singularity. Accepting Ritsuka and Mash's offer of aid, Artemis defeats the werewolves with their help. After defeating the werewolves, Artemis introduces herself Orion to the Chaldea pair, and says she came to repair her reputation by correcting the Singularity. Artemis is then asked by Mash if she saw any suspcious people, who have stolen Chaldea's provisions. She answers that she had seen three people running carrying something strange, which had food falling out all over the place. After accepting her offer to help them, Artemis and the others set out get back the dumplings.
The group soon come upon Marie Antoinette, d'Eon, and Sanson in a forest, eating dumplings around a campfire. However, the group's presence is soon sensed by d'Eon and Sanson, which results in a fight when Mash demands the dumplings back. After defeating the French Servants, Mash prepares to interrogate them, but Artemis senses a presence similar to that of Orion's. Mozart then reveals to the relief of the French Servants and goes to fight the group with d'Eon and Sanson. After defeating them, Marie returns the dumplings to the group, but reveals that she gave a trio they met earlier three tons worth of dumplings as a sign of friendship. After hearing that the trio was going to pray near the waters of Marseille, the group set out set out once again to get back the dumplings.
Later, the group come upon Saint Martha, Georgios, and Sasaki eating dumplings around a campfire at the shoreline. Georgios returns the dumplings after hearing they were originally stolen from Chaldea, but a fight ensues when Artemis reveals that Saint Martha, Georgios, and Sasaki all still have dumplings hidden on their person. The group is able to defeat them, however Artemis points that Saint Martha is trying to escape on Tarasque. But before she escaped, Martha reveals to the group that her group gave half of their dumplings to a fat man in the wasteland.
The group later come upon Julius Caesar and Caligula eating dumplings, but a fight ensues when Mash tries to get the dumplings back. After defeating the Roman emperors, Mash tries to take the the bag of dumplings back to Chaldea, but Artemis senses that someone is eating them in the bag. Then, to Artemis's shock, Altera comes out of the bag, and Artemis warns Ritsuka and Mash of Altera's destructive tendencies before they fight her. After defeating Altera with the help of Artemis and Julius Casesar, Ritsuka and Mash are rayshifted back to Chaldea with the dumplings.
However, Artemis transports Ritsuka and Mash back to the Singularity, where she reveals that she broke into Chaldea. However, the traps on Chaldea's food storage kept her out of it, so she ended transporting the entire storage to the Singularity. She then continues to reveal that she attempted to retrieve them, but Marie got to them first before finally meeting Ritsuka and Mash. Artemis then reveals that she wanted the dumplings because they're an offering to the moon, and states that Chaldea's dumplings had awoken her. However, her magical energy was too weak, and so she set out with the group to get the rare dumplings in order to restore her strength. Happy that she is able finally able fight with them, Artemis reveal herself to not be Orion but the Moon Goddess before fighting the group to test both of their skills. After she is defeated by the group, Artemis disappears saying that they will meet again.
Okeanos: The Four Sealed Seas of the EndEdit
Salomon: The Grand Time TempleEdit
Artemis and Orion are amongst the "Okeanos" Singularity Servants to aid Chaldea against the Demon Gods Pillar. Orion complains to Artemis that his appearance doesn't look impressive and hopes to have his original form back.
Dead Heat Summer Race! ~Ishtar Cup of Hopes and Dreams~Edit
Archer is powerful enough to bend space to change the order of cause and effect to change the possibility of "one day, the Heroic Spirit will form a contract" to the result of "a contract has already been formed", allowing her to summon herself to the dango festival before Ritsuka Fujimaru formally contracts with her.
Since Artemis' Divinity has dropped to the lowest limit, she has a power that is just slightly stronger than your normal Servant. Artemis' skill with archery is on a level that despite not barring the proper posture and stance of an archer, none of her shots ever miss.
In this form, Orion has no power and is fundamentally useless. However, being the son of Poseidon, he can still walk on water.

 Fate/Extra CCC - Meltlilith (Alter Ego) Matrix
Class: Alter Ego
Noble Phantasm: Saraswati Meltout (Benzaiten's Five String Biwa)
Keyword: Crime ballet, composite divinity
Strength: E, Endurance: C, Agility: A+, Magic: A, Luck: B
Constitution of an Abuser: A, Melt Virus: EX, Riding: B
01 - Sawarswati Meltout: Benzaiten's Five String Biwa
The Noble Phantasm that BB gave to this Alter Ego.
Originally, it was not an Anti-Unit but an Anti-Group, Anti-World Noble Phantasm. It was not something to be used in combat or by a warrior, but something used by a something in the range of a civilization with an established culture.
Meltlilith's honey sweetly melts not only the body but also the soul. This Noble Phantasm melts the community's good sense and morals and makes it into a single body that resembles a colony.
And so trampling on the body and heart and society that has been turned into slime and absorbing it is its original power.
That it shows an immense effectiveness against non-combatants is Meltlilith's depravity oozing out.
The one used as the ingredient for this is one of the Seven Deities of Good Luck, a goddess of the same rank as the Three Goddesses of Munakata and Ugajin, Benzaiten.
This is the biwa of Benzaiten, who controls "things that flow," such as natural phenomena, among which is water and wind, music and words, speech, poetry and prose, given form as a Noble Phantasm. The source of Benzaiten is the river goddess of Hindu mythology, Saraswati. She was born from the god of creation Brahma, but she was unable to stand the passionate gaze of Brahma, who had come to desire as his consort due to her overwhelming beauty, and desperately ran from him, making her a goddess who is timid when faced with love. Saraswati is a goddess who rules over the arts and education, and as she's come to be worshiped as Benzaiten, she's come to possess the ability to increase property as well.
02 - Crime Ballet
A simple battle style. The result of Meltlilith, who adores classical ballet, retuning herself: an arrangement of various offensive skills. She came to possess diverse powers by converting already completed stories and stages into skills.
Those references are quite diverse. Below is an explanation of them.
"The Name on the Heel is the Cursed Sword Giselle": from the classical ballet "Giselle." Having fallen into despair to being betrayed by her beloved Albrecht, Giselle uses his sword in a frenzied dance, during which she dies. Women who die before marriage become ghosts known as wilis. Giselle becomes one of the wilis, who capture men and dance them to death, but...
"Unforgivable Hilarion": from the classical ballet "Giselle." Hilarion, who deceived Giselle, is caught by the Wilis and comes to pay for this crime. He is not forgiven and without waiting for daybreak, they make him dance in ecstasy until he dies from exhaustion.
"Farewell, Albrecht": from the classical ballet "Giselle." Albrecht is taken prisoner by the wilis but due to one of the wilis saving him, his life is spared. When Albrecht, who was spared from death by exhaustion, raises his face, the form of the girl he most loved disappears like an illusion.
"The Siren Who Burns Entrails": from the classical ballet "The Prodigal Son." A country feudal lord's son, out of admiration for life in the city, runs away. There are many temptations lurking in the city, the most extreme of which is the enchantress, Siren, who corrupts men the wiles she's come to possess from a life of adversity.
However, the lineage of these skills is merely a smokescreen. Crime Ballet points out how Meltlilith has been cheating.
In order to make herself invincible, Meltlilith has overwritten a basic rule that the far side of the moon possesses, "the lack of a sense of time" with "the lack of hit detection for Meltlilith."
Meltlilith's conduct in selfishly giving herself such a privilege, not by training herself thoroughly, but by altering the rules of the rule, is an exemplary criminal act.
03 - Composite Divinity
Alter Egos are High Servants created as complexes of Heroic Spirits.
BB accessed the Moon Cell's Servant Archives, chose goddesses compatible with the Ego from them, and reproduced the data. Alter Egos came into existence as complexes of goddesses.
Meltlilith is made of three goddesses.
The first is the pure virgin goddess Artemis of Greek mythology. She would unfailing shoot through, simultaneously granting disease and death, those who sought to attain the magical power which pulls the tides and causes them to rise, in other words, their link to the moon's movement.
The second is the cruciform snake staff which originates from Leviathan, who appears in the Old Testament or maybe Lotan from Ugaritic myths. It is something with the same origin as the staff that Moses used to split the Red Sea, while also acting as a symbol of the sea that that staff split. Its owner will be granted a transformative property like that of water, making it feasible for them to adapt to any situation. Furthermore, their form will be able to change phantasmagorically, and it would even be possible to take the shape of the target of one's envy.
The third is the river goddess Saraswati. She holds the ability to control "things that flow," such as natural phenomena, among which is water and wind, music and words, speech, poetry and prose. The timbre that flows from her can excite any emotion in the heart of those who hear it and, moreover, can interfere with the flow of electricity in a computer network.
０１ - 弁財天五弦琵琶
０２ - クライム・バレエ
０３ - 複合神性
01 - Constitution of an Abuser [A]
A skill that augments one's aggression in battle. It appears to be a positive skill, but the longer its owner stays in battle, the more their abusive disposition will grow, causing them to lose their usual composure. It's possible to say that this is just one step short of the skill that causes Berserkers to go insane.
The more one attacks, the stronger one becomes, but on the other hand, one's defensive abilities drop. With the added disadvantage of unconsciously lowering one's chances of escape, it can be said that this is a skill that had bad compatibility with the usually composed Meltlilith.
02 - Melt Virus [EX]
A unique power, called id_es, that the Alter Egos possess from their creation.
A skill that evolved from "Absorption." The highest grade of energy drain. Draining, copying, and scaling down are all possible.
The drain process has two parts. First the virus poison (honey) that is produced in Meltlilith's body is injected into the target and fuses the parameters that will be stolen at that time, "experience," "skills," "capacity," etc. After that, she absorbs, converts, and makes a part of herself the parameters that were liquified by the virus.
As long as it as a form, it is possible to drain, regardless of whether it is made of organic matter or inorganic matter, but things without shape...
Things such as spiritual nature and skills can be fused, but converting them into "my own things" is difficult, so it seems she can only utilize them as simple nutrients.
For this reason, what Meltlilith mainly makes into "my own things" is primarily "experience" and "capacity."
Utilizing this ability, Meltlilith plans to augment "my own transcription." She created a transference-type of virus that would melt all the contents of an electronic body and transform them into herself... Meltlilith.
03 - Riding [B]
Riding ability. As long as it is an animal that exists in reality, even if it is a wild animal, she can ride it. Usually, knight-type Servants, such as Saber or Rider, would have this skill but...
Why Meltlilith possesses this skill is something best left to the imagination.
０１ - 加虐待質 [A]
０２ - メルトウィルス [EX]
０３ - 騎乗 [B]
01 - Neurological Disorder
Neurological disorder: Humans possess five sense--sight, hearing, smell, taste, and touch--and use those five sensors come to recognize the outside world and, as a result of that, they come to comprehend their own state of being.
At their foundation, humans come in contact with the world through these passive senses. By unconsciously using the excellent sensors known as the five senses, they accept the ordinary. However, in the case that any of the five senses degrade, the consciousness must actively face toward the outside world. That which was passive becomes active.
For example, someone who has lost their sight will deliberately specialize in their remaining four senses and will utilize them as even greater sensors. Ironically, they will come to function as someone whose perception is several times superior to that of a person who has all five senses.
In regards to Meltlilith's five senses, her sense of touch has deteriorated. Especially her hands--she's almost completely lost sensation in her fingers, and for that reason, she has become proactive in her relationship with the outside world.
It is thought that even her interest in causing others pains ultimately arose "because like this, I'm the only one who cannot feel the existence of other people."
This is a digression, but because of the clumsiness of her fingers caused by this, despite her hobby of collecting figures, she cannot immerse herself in assembling garage kits. Currently accepting applications for a skilled assembler!
02 - The End of Pleasure
The end of pleasure: the ego born from BB's "service requirement" and "pleasure." The type of abnormally lovely girl who cannot help but stir up a desire to protect her in men--is what she was, but possibly due to the effect of her skill which allows her to continuously steal her opponent's abilities, she currently possesses a belligerent disposition.
Despite how she takes in other people, she doesn't desire understanding or sympathy from them due to the fact that Meltlilith does not understand the feelings of others.
Meltlilith does not need other people. She doesn't understand love or dreams. Supposing a situation where she would acquire "LOVE," she would probably dedicate everything to and attend the object of it.
To the self-sufficient Meltlilith, the feelings of the object of her affection aren't worth taking into account. She would declare in her oppressive manner that her own feelings are correct.
Without any intention of conversing with them (I already love you so much that I don't feel the need for it), without any desire to touch them (that amount of pleasure is already unsatisfactory), she has no intention of telling them that she wants them to love her (that kind of mutual understanding is already unnecessary.)
Truly, what a domineering Ego devoted to 'no's and 'not's. Beneath that constant domineering attitude and permanent perch on a high horse, there is not a speck of doubt or hesitation but only overly pure "awakening to love."
Meltlilith hasn't noticed. Just what is the true foundation of herself, who is the incarnation of "self-pleasure."
What makes up Meltlilith's core is "devotion to the person one has fallen in love with."
That she repeatedly raised her level by draining and that she decided to control the Moon Cell is so she can offer supreme pleasure to her loved one.
Protecting her loved one → taking her loved one into herself → the herself that she took them into (even if she is completely changed to the point where she doesn't understand herself) will continue to live forever. She has determined that that is the supreme love she will offer to her loved one.
Looking at them from Meltlilith's perspective, even BB and Lip are nothing more than "foreign bodies that even I feel that I want to save."
...However, those feelings are far too closed. To her, who saw only her own feelings as definite, whose connection with the outside world was lacking, "LOVING another person" was itself a fatal bug (defect).

Cursed Cutting Crater (C. C. C.)
An attack on the world by BB in control of the Moon Cell.
Also called the spirit particle imaginary pit.
A world purge by means of event rewriting, making maximum use of the EX skill “Potnia Theron” BB had acquired.
The goddess who is the mother of the earth goddesses who created the earth is, in other words, the “root” that created all creation.
This Noble Phantasm is an anti-world Noble Phantasm that outputs information like an ultra-precise 3d printer and crushes the present world with the world desired by the user.
The space eroded by BB becomes imaginary space and a curse that consumes reality. CCC as the name suggests is a cursed pit that bores out reality.
In addition to scattering all objects inside on an atomic level and reconstructing them, it is capable of writing over and rewriting information of fields such as luck and coincidence.
While theoretical, it is also thought possible to distort the time axis by interfering with gravity fields and rewrite the law of cause and effect.
When used in combat, BB’s familiars, the shapeshifters engulf the target, and after turning into a sphere, is wiped out of existence along with the target and the dimension with it.
Normally, a structure in which value can be shared cannot be constructed in the far side of the world, which is imaginary space. What established BB’s internal world as the Sakura labyrinth was the power of this Noble Phantasm.
Advanced Level AI
An artificial intelligence configured according to their program. In this age, they are treated as things that "function as programs," but "do not exist as actual beings." In other words, things that "are" right in front of your eyes but "are not." They are merely a mechanisms for the sake of allowing human lives to progress smoothly.
As it is the same for the SE.RA.PH, they are virtual lifeforms that are created along with the commencement of the Holy Grail War and disposed along with its completion.
Within the SE.RA.PH. the humanoid virtual lifeforms are: the NPCs that perform only one task, AIs who have been granted the capability for self-judgement, and the advanced level AIs who have been trusted with the capability for self-judgement ad the management of a section.
Advanced level AIs are things created to efficiently promote the Moon Cell's primary objective of "human observation." As they are perfect reproductions of humans, they have been programmed with a at least a soul, but while the soul "is there," it is contents are still colorless.
The virtual lifeforms that the SE.RA.PH creates are reset with the round of the Holy Grail War. The NPCs and AIs return to zero, while advanced level AIs retain just their persona and their memories are reset--made to pretend that they never existed.
When the Holy Grail War is over, the one who is left alive is the Master standing at the summit. This is a fact that applies not just to the Masters but is also held in common by the virtual lifeforms that the SE.RA.PH created.
It appears that BB is an advanced level AI entrusted with managing the health of the Masters, the same as Sakura. However, as she is now rampaging for reasons unknown, the methods she uses to "manage the Masters" have become extreme.
Khakkhara of Direction
The teacher's pointer that BB carries. A device that allows her to use her use her authority as an advanced level AI to its fullest. There are restrictions from the far side of the moon, but with this, BB can revise the game rules (spirit particle laws within the SE.RA.PH)
The ten crowns of direction worn by the Beast of Babylon converted into a teacher's cane. This is due to the theory that the seven-headed beast is male, which opposes the theory that it is female; it's true nature is a phallus (an erect rod).
The symbol of the king of the world who was granted power and authority by a great dragon and, during a period of 42 months, spat as many arrogant words as they desired and had received the right to desecrate all things.
The beasts heads are the seven hills of the Roman Empire... Capitolium, Palatium, Aventinus, Esquilinus, Caelius, Quirinalis, Viminalis. In other words, it symbolized the Roman Empire itself, and those ten horns were symbols of... Augustus, Tiberius, Caligula, Claudius, Nero, Vespasianus, Titus, Galba, Otho, Vitellius... those emperors.

Golden Grail [EX]
The golden grail that BB possesses. The Holy Grail. The Holy Grail that grants its owner's impudent and selfish desires.
The grail that the great enchantress who appears in The Revelation of St. John the Divine holds. Though it's a counterfeit Holy Grail, it's because that it's a counterfeit Holy Grail that it's become a "genuine" Holy Grail that grants the desires of humans without paying heed to right or wrong.
To the Christians of those days, who considered honorable poverty a virtue, this grail, which was formed as a symbol of treasures such as gold, is no doubt the meaning of corrupt wealth, greed, and the vanity that leads one to adorn oneself.
Though it is clear on the occasion that this grail is held by the great enchantress of Babylon which in the personification of the Roman Empire, this grail symbolizes the wealth of the earth, which is the inversion of Christ's words, "Do not pile up the wealth of the earth."
"I saw a single woman astride a red beast. This beast, whose entire body was full of numerous blasphemous names, had seven heads and ten horns."
This is the description of the beast of destruction that appeared in the Holy City and the woman who was straddling this beast, according to the book of Revelation. A large beast with seven heads like a hydra came from the sea and disembarked toward the Holy City. This beast and woman, while two, are as one, and it is impossible to think of them separately.
It is said that this woman was born from evil, and those who are quick to anger, those who are greedy, cannot resist her allure and become corrupted by that grail.
This is a digression, but it is sad that the red Saber who claims the title of emperor was, after her death, was seen by believers to be on par with this beast.
A skill that allows one to restructure oneself. AIs created by the Moon Cell are under an absolute rule, "Improving one's functionality is not allowed."
However, BB, who had escaped that yoke due to her breaking down, began to expand her own functions. In order to boost her calculating power, she had that black noise prey on and dismantle NPCs, AIs, and finally, Servants, and utilized them as her own memory.
Though they were appendix-like additions that won't spare her from the fate of collapsing on her own, BB has changed into a hyper level AI who holds an enormous amount of capacity. Like the towns on reclaimed land that continue to build architecture while knowing that it will be swallowed by water or Frakenstein's monster.
Potnia Theron [EX]
Potnia Theron (Conception of All Animals).
The authority of the goddesses whom BB compiled and absorbed from the abyss of the mooncell.
What it is is the embodiment of the power of creation possessed by the mother goddesses, originating from a forgotten goddess approximately 8000 years ago (the goddess of Çatalhöyük), and branching to Tiamat and Cybele, Ishtar, Inanna, Athena, Astarte, Gaia, Hera, Artemis, Aphrodite, Demeter, Athena, etc.
Many are imaged with mural crowns. This is because many of the goddesses were also the guardian deities of cities.
The symbols of this authority are the holes opening in the earth and the sky (caves and the moon), the whirlpools and typhoons of the sea, the craters of volcanos, and so on, and from these, evils bringing forth all manners of death are birthed.
But once these evils have finished spreading death, they leave the promise of good harvest and fertility. This authority is none other than the power of bringing death as well as giving life.
The earth mother is a guardian deity revered by the people and their protector, and at the same time she is the sacrifice that feeds them with the crops born from her body and the beasts of the fields and the forests.
The earth mother feeds man with her blood and flesh, kills man over time and absorbs him as nutrition, and once again feeds man with her replenished blood and flesh.
This process is the circle of the food chain, and the cycle of life and death can be said to be the true nature of the earth mother. With this authority, most of the goddesses gave birth to countless monsters and giants and posed a threat to the gods and man, or they gave birth to heroes and became protectors of man.
Tiamat and Gaia are examples of those who became threats, and Hera is an example of a mother of heroes.
Those born on this earth cannot defy the authority of the earth mother, as that would mean rebelling against the system of life itself.
However, it is when they have left this earth to go into outer space and ended the infantile stage of intelligent lifeforms that they should no longer be bound to this authority..
The wish of Çatalhöyük is the coming of that day.

Spirit Particle Imaginary Trap
Cursed Cutting Crater (Spirit Particle Imaginary Trap)
The official name of this stage.
The fact that BB had reached the Moon Cell core established this “place”, formerly imaginary space for storing malicious information, as real space in the present, past, and future. It was reconstructed at her hands as a “far side of the moon” where even Masters can exist.
BB attaining the power of the primordial goddess succeeded in quantifying the “nothingness” before the birth of life. She transformed into a master of imaginary space where time and space are indefinite.
While the Moon Cell can’t be hacked however much time is spent, BB was able to take control of it by placing herself in “unlimited time”.
02 The remnants of peaceful days
After the constraints to her free will were removed by Kiara, she was unable to control her status abnormality and went into overload.
As NPCs can only do routine work, they ignored Sakura while she was crashing down as being “non-existent”, and since the mooncell only performs a check at the end of the day in the preliminaries, Sakura was within an inch of termination.
(MC name) witnessing this called to her. Are you okay, he/she said.
The observation of Sakura “being here” by a third party helped her recover her close to disappearing unconscious, and the subsequent nursing gave her a clear ego of “wanting to be here”. Her self-destruction was averted.
What happened afterwards need not be said.
When the next day comes, everything will be erased by the mooncell. Sakura wanting to continue this one day miracle used her higher class AI privilege to repeat the day she came to know the MC for 69 days.
However as time passed, Sakura came to suffer from her self-contradiction as an AI and from the fact that she dragged (MC name) into this.
“The Masters participating in the holy grail war will all die, barring one exception. No, even then (MC name)…..”
Sakura continued to suffer from her desire to continue the loop for eternity and her feelings for (MC name)
The decision she chose ultimately was to seal the 69 days worth of memory, the love she acquired, so she could return to being a normal AI.
An AI cannot delete records.
Because of that, she moved the memory to a backup machine to reset herself.
Believing that to be the best choice for (MC name).
But even if the memories in the mind are lost, the memories recorded by the body continue to live. Though she had forgotten everything and was back to being a normal AI, she was shaken by emotional values of unknown origin every time she talked with the MC.
Meanwhile, the backup to which she moved her memory, couldn’t tolerate herself, and she decided her course of action and made her move as BB, the rebel plotting to destroy the system of the mooncell for a certain objective.
The timing she took control of the far side of the moon was between the end of the fifth round and the beginning of the sixth in real time. Four Masters who were not defeated yet, (MC name), Leo, Rin, and Rani, and the irregular exception Jinako were kidnapped to the far side during the war while they were still alive.
Matou Shinji, Gato, Julius were moved to imaginary space 0.00001 seconds before the firewall would have destroyed them after they were defeated, prolonging their flash of life.
Regardless, CCC is a dream by BB.
If the dreamer is no more, the world ought to return to a reality where nothing happened.
By the way, the everyday scenery in the prologue that (MC name) saw in his nightmare was an artificial paradise modeled off the discarded 69 days.
After pulling (MC name) to the near side, BB placed his digital body in the old school building, putting into a deep sleep and sealing him in a never ending dream.
Normally, he would have lived peacefully in the looping everyday life, but the strength of his bond with his Servant, or his own will rejecting the peaceful days caused cracks in the artificial garden and (MC name) came to notice something was not right.
In order to place (MC name) into deep slumber once more, BB reset the school building and tried to redo the dream, but the (MC name) escaped the reset and leaped into a deeper part of imaginary space
It was a depth deeper than the bottom of Id.
“The death of the collective unconscious” beneath the unconscious.
What saved (MC name) who leaped into a region even BB cannot affect was the voice of the Servant whose fate was shared with his.
Thus, the contract was sealed, and (MC name) woke up in the old school building left in the far side.

 Fate/EXTRA material - Encyclopedia: Archer (Green) [Servant], p.152-154 [T]
Archer (Green) [Servant]
Green Archer is a Servant who the protagonist fights in the second round.
His Master is Dan Blackmore.
He is a sniper whose body is hidden in a green cloak. In order to avoid confusion with the red-cloaked Archer, he is sometimes called Ryokucha.
His true name is Robin Hood, Hunter of the Forest.
It’s important to note that he is not the Robin Hood you know from popular legend. Instead Green Archer is a chivalrous robber based on the original Robin Hood.
The original Robin Hood was a troublemaking orphan who lived alone on the outskirts of a village. In a twist of fate he became involved in an ordeal with some of the Lord’s soldiers who came around town for tax collection.
The Lord had recently succeeded as head of the family, and he was taking the opportunity to raise taxes to the point where he was essentially telling the villagers to starve to death.
The villagers lacked both the desire and the power to go against the Lord.
So Robin didn’t try to rally the villagers, and instead cast himself as a protector of the forest who would punish any who violated it. He drove off the soldiers using this as his excuse. From then on he kept his identity hidden and continued to fight the Lord. Eventually he became known amongst the villagers as The Green Man.
Traps, surprise attacks, and foul play formed the core of Robin Hood’s tactics, so as a Servant he generally avoids head on confrontation.
He tries to lure his prey into the forest, which is his true territory.
“You could never call my territory a “nice forest.” Complete preparation. An overwhelming network of tricks and traps. A place for the weak to shoot and bring down stronger foe. That’s my Sherwood Forest.”
His trump card is poison obtained from plants in the forest. Actually both Green Archer and Cas-ko are poison users.
Robin Hood appears in “The Tale of Robin Hood” and is a chivalrous robber that lurks in Sherwood forest. Depicted as a hero of justice that fights against the Tyrant King John Lackland, he is a character born from a fusion of Greek myths about Orion, Celtic myths about fairies, and Druid beliefs.
There was a real person after whom he was modeled; however the model is also thought to be the result of a mix of multiple people. From the 16th century onwards he was thought to be someone who lived in the time of King Lionheart.
His true identity is veiled, however there was certainly someone who he originated from. That someone was a hero who fought not for themselves, but for the benefit of other people. But then, after death, they were destined to be forgotten. (If you look at it from this perspective, both Red and Green Archers share similar personalities.) [TL NOTE: Here personality was expressly written in katakana, but it feels like it should probably be “share a similar fate.”]
Robin Hood was handsome enough to make any naive village girl fall for him with a single look. That being said, he was very kind and a rather timid man, so not exactly the perfect lady-killer.
He would often act frivolously to hide his naive fixation on justice. But his creed always puts life over death.
“Pride or idleness are great and all, but it’s all over if you die, right?”
It follows that he held the small-minded desire of just wanting something warm and pleasant to be waiting for him after surviving to the end of the conflict. However it stands that he never managed to achieve this.
To be blunt, he had a childish, ill-tempered perspective of the world. Passing over whatever with a simple “Well I guess that’s the way it is.”
After being hated by the villagers [for the trouble he caused when he was young] he learned to simply go with the flow, and often told himself, “Don’t meddle too deeply in the affairs of others.” Nevertheless he had a love for people and whenever he saw people having fun he would somehow manage to slip himself into the group. He would end up as someone who was less than a friend, but more than a stranger.
His main attribute is virtue, so he loathes evil people, but finds no fault with good people (ordinary people). Although he twists the world around him, he would never sneer at the effort of others, however fruitless it may be.
At the root of his character is his strong sense of shame about his lowly origin.
Robin Hood is summoned as the Servant Archer, and his has poor compatibility with his Master (Dan). Throughout his lifetime he managed to stay alive by employing surprise attacks, assassination, and destructive traps. He was a so-called “Master of Cowardice.” Therefore Dan’s knightly mentality is something of a hindrance to Robin.
When it comes to the Holy Grail War, what effect does this incompatibility have on Robin’s smoldering wish (his desire of the Grail)? To find out, please refer to the game contents.
It must be mentioned that despite being ideologically incompatible with Dan, their personal relationship is rather good. Although Robin can’t follow along with Dan’s knightly mentality, Dan is a man of justice, just like Robin is. As such, Robin reluctantly obeys his orders. His reluctance is not due to prejudice, but rather because they are polar opposites.
Dan is impervious to trickery and deception, so Ryokucha (Green Archer) can’t help but scratch his head, “I wound up with another pain in the ass again.”
Green Archer: “Nitpicking at every little thing isn’t going to defeat our enemies. Oh well I guess it’s fine. I’m used to adversity after all. I’ll follow along obediently without a single complaint.”
Dan: “Archer, just my opinion, but isn’t what you just said generally considered to be a complaint?” Green Archer: “Eh? Ah, yep that’s right. You’ve got me there.”
The old veteran warrior and the young philosophical greenback.
This is the face of the struggle they share.
