Berserker's True Name is Asterios (アステリオス, Asuteriosu?), but he is more widely known by his alias as the "bull of King Minos," Minotauros (ミーノータウロス, Mīnōtaurosu?). Although bestowed with the "name of lightning", he was almost never called by his real name, but rather by the name of the monster that spread throughout the world. He was a monster who possessed the body of a man and the head of an ox, born from Pasiphae, wife of King Minos, and a bull. Minos, who ruled over the island of Crete, was greatly perplexed on how to deal with the offspring, deciding to order the famous artisan Daedalus to build a "maze that one cannot get out from" to hold him. This order resulted in the Labyrinth, where Asterios was eventually slain by the hero Theseus after he sneaked into the Labyrinth. Indeed; even if his essence was not wicked, since his deeds were evil, his fate was to be brought down. However Theseus did not see Asterios as a monster.
The outline of Berserker's life was that a "monster from birth would be defeated by a hero from birth", so he was thus slain by Theseus. He cannot be called wicked in essence, but he was fated to be brought down because his deeds were evil. He sought not darkness and a gloomy maze, but rather the light and the "refreshing wind of nature and a plentiful forest."
Although a Berserker who falters his words, it is possible to barely come to a mutual understanding with him. Far more docile than other Berserkers due to that, he will never betray his Master so long as they perceive him as "Asterios" rather than "Minotauros."
Okeanos: The Four Sealed Seas of the EndEdit
He is seen protecting Euryale.
Berserker appears as an incomplete Servant summoned by Wolfgang Faustus. He helps Faustus hold back Caster, Archer and Assassin, but is eventually destroyed when Norma Goodfellow (with some help from Manaka Sajyou) destroy the Subcategory Holy Grail, causing him to fade away.
Natural Demon (天性の魔, Tensei no ma?) is a Skill that those who were given birth as a monster are endowed with. Not a hero or god that has fallen down to a magic beast. Asterios has attained a Rank of "Strength" and "Endurance" which is absolutely impossible for a human body.
Labrys from the Abyss (深淵のラブリュス, Shin'en no raburyusu?) is a Skill that the pair of giant axes he owns. It's the symbol of the Labyrinth and the root of that very word. It was originally a two-bladed axe but Asterios rearranged it into two axes. He battles with twin halberds that change upon his Ascension.
His Noble Phantasm is Chaos Labyrinth.
