“If God is certain to exist, then surely divine retribution shall find me.”
—Joan Alter

Avenger's True Name is Jeanne d'Arc (Alter) (ジャンヌ・ダルク〔オルタ〕, Jan'nu Daruku (Oruta)?), also known as Jeanne Alter (ジャンヌ・ダルク, Jan'nu Daruku?), an alternate version of Joan of Arc. While referred to as "Alter", she is not another "aspect" of Joan, but rather she is a creation of the Holy Grail born from Gilles de Rais's wishes shortly after the execution of Joan in 1431. Rightfully a "saint" rather than a "hero", there is a zero percent probability of being able to "summon another aspect" of Joan, so Joan Alter is an existence encapsulating much of the corrupted Gilles's biases and feelings. With several circumstances accumulating, despite being a fictional existence, it became possible for her to answer to summons as a black holy woman. Joan Alter is a "draconic witch who rose from her grave to avenge herself upon France."[1]



Avenger is someone who does not care about the world possibly ending. She is extremely irritated by her reliance on her Master, and she is "like an aggressive cat that neither grows attached to nor panders." Her Master is suggested to start by fighting battles together with her.[1]

She is fundamentally bitter towards the Master, but maybe due to how the holy woman Jeanne who became her basis was quite the softhearted, one can perceive respect and affection for the Master at her core. She has no girlish hobbies, but seems that there were some maiden-like wishes. "To think that, in the depths of her consciousness, she wants to perform a strained avenge trade while being surrounded by handsome men of her own liking!" - such is the comment from a Servant of the same Avenger Class.[1]


Fate/Grand OrderEdit

Joan Alter is the primary antagonist of the "Wicked Dragon's Hundred Year War" Order in France.


Avenger comes with an innate skill to control dragons as the result of being created from Gilles's wishes. Acting as an opposing phenemonon to the legends of saints who defeated dragons like Saint George and Saint Martha, she can control everything from Wyverns to mighty dragons like Fafnir.[1] As Ruler, she possesses the same Magic Resistance as her normal self and lowered Charisma. Her Noble Phantasm is La Grondement Du Haine.
