Saint George, the Dragon-slaying Saint (ドラゴン殺しの聖者 ゲオルギウス, Doragon-goroshi no Seija Georugiusu?) is a Rider-class Servant originally designed for the Fate/Apocrypha game project and left unused.

ProfileEdit

LegendEdit

Saint George is a saint of the Catholic Church whose main stories are in the Golden Legend, a collection of legends on saints, and in the Seven Champions of Christendom. In the Golden Legend (黄金伝説抄, ?), he was passing through a village that offered a sacrifice to calm a dragon, and defeated the dragon by throwing his spear. Having captured the dragon, he killed it only on the condition that the whole country the village was in adopted Christianity. In the Seven Champions of Christendom (キリスト教圏の七勇士, ?), he was kidnapped by a witch and raised by her, but he realized she was evil and sealed her in a cave, releasing 6 other saints from the same circumstances. He then went to Egypt and rescued a princess offered as a sacrifice to a dragon, killing the dragon by striking it at a spot uncovered by scales with Ascalon, a sword offered to him by the witch who had raised him.[1]

PersonalityEdit

He is an upright man who tasks himself to protect the meager, indiscriminate in his kindness. It is his firm belief that anyone is capable of error, and that anyone is capable of learning from their mistakes and returning to path of virtue; those who would oppress others and permit violence to rule their hearts and actions have merely fallen prey to their own weakness. On his watch, however, none shall be permitted to injure others; and if necessary, his sword shall be drawn intervene. A lover of travel, he has recently grown interested in the cameras of the modern era.[1]

DevelopmentEdit

Saint George was designed by Kiyomune Miwa and illustrated by Higashiguchi Chuuou for the canceled Fate/Apocrypha online game project which was not included in the final version.[1] He was collected along with the other thirteen initial Servant designs in Fate/complete material IV Extra material. The project was revived in novel format afterwards, but he was cut along with Musashibo Benkei, David, and Sakata Kintoki, and replaced by Achilles.

AbilitiesEdit

SkillsEdit

Magic Resistance (対魔力, Taimaryoku?): A
In the Servant's era of origin -- when Magecraft still retained its ancient strength -- countless wielders of the arcane arts attempted to bring him low with their spells, but he managed to emerge unscathed. For his skill in this ability, it would not be an exaggeration to title the Servant a "Magus Killer.".[1]

Riding (騎乗, Kijō?): B
Though classed as a Rider, and noted in his heroic legend to defeated a dragon on horseback, the Servant is not exceptionally skilled in mounted maneuverability. He receives a class bonus in this ability as a Servant, but in life, his apparent expertise in riding would be rightfully attributed to the skill of his trusted steed, Bayard.[1]

Battle Continuation (戦闘続行, Sentō Zokkō?): A
Beloved by the World, the unyielding force of life within the Servant permits the continuation of combat even in the event of fatal injury. He is further driven by a conscientiousness of the faith and expectations of those he desires to protect. A divine protection from the Earth rooted in the veneration of Georgius as a Patron of Harvest.[1]

Instinct (直感, Chokkan?): C
Upon engagement, the Servant is capable of optimizing his position by identifying and exploiting favorable developments. However, the skill cannot be activated except for defensive purposes. The Servant typically uses this ability to vaguely divine the intent of an opponent so as to determine whether engagement is an appropriate course of action, or if the opponent is an "enemy that must be fought."[1]

Guardian Knight (守護騎士, Shugo Kishi?): A+
The Servant receives a temporary attribute bonus if acting in the defense of others. A protector of numerous nations and expansive regions in life, the Servant is capable of deriving effectively unlimited defensive capabilities from those who place their faith and expectations in him.[1]

Soul of a Martyr (殉教者の魂, Junkyousha no Tamashii?): B+
Nullification of mental interference through firmness of faith. In life, the Servant endured persecution and torture at the hands those who would see him denounce his faith, but never once did he falter in his ministry of Christ.[1]

Divinity (神性, Shinsei?): C
As the Servant was revered as a saint in the medieval era, the strength of his nature as a divine spirit is equivalent in rank to the deities of minor cults and the forgotten gods of yore. Incidentally, the name "Georgius" was originally related in sense to the tilling of the earth in ancient farming communities -- rooted in the reverence of the Middle Eastern God of Harvest, Ba'al.[1]

Noble PhantasmsEdit

Ascalon: The Blessed Sword By Which Force is Slain (力屠る祝福の剣アスカロン, Asukaron: Chikara Hofuru Shukufuku no Ken?)
An invincible weapon that delivers its holder from those who would intend harm. Its "invincibility" comes not from capacity to defeat foes, but capacity to defend from all harm. However, by reversing its protective power, it can becomes a sword that pierces through any kind of armor.[1]

Abyssus Draconis: Thou Shalt a Serpent Become (汝は竜なりアヴィスス・ドラコーニス, Avisusu Dorakōnisu: Nanji wa Ryū Nari?)
An Anti-Army Noble Phantasm that transfigures a given target into a draconian being. Though said function appears to be associated with the Servant's cross-emblazoned surcoat, strictly speaking, the phenomenon is implemented through the Servant's unshakeable faith; the surcoat is merely a focus, and cannot independently activate as a Noble Phantasm.[1]

Interfectum Dracones: Dragon Slayer (竜殺しインテルフェクトゥム・ドラーコーネース, Interufekutumu Dorākōnēsu: Ryū-goroshi?)
A gestalt Anti-Unit Noble Phantasm generated through the interaction of the Servant's nature as a slayer of dragons and the capabilities of Ascalon, dealing massive damage to beings of draconian origin. The blade form deployed in melee combat can be used as a medium to release lance-like projectiles of light, piercing targets at long range.[1]

Bayard: The Phantom War Horse (幻影戦馬ベイヤード, Beiyādo: Gen'ei Senba?)
A magical white horse, conferred to the Servant by a witch who fell in love with him despite initial intentions to bewitch and tempt in the chronicles of the "Seven Champions of Christendom." He who rides upon Bayard is impervious to harm, and -- for one time only -- capable of completely nullifying a lethal attack.[1]
