Berserker (バーサーカー, Bāsākā?) is a Berserker-class Servant able to be summoned by the Protagonist in the Grand Orders of Fate/Grand Order.

ProfileEdit

IdentityEdit

Berserker's True Name is Beowulf (ベオウルフ, Beourufu?), the protagonist of "Beowulf", said to be the oldest epic poem of English literature. The setting of the epic poem amounts to south of modern Sweden to the vicinity of Denmark.[2]

This tale is composed by two parts; part one is the story about Beowulf proceeding to exterminate the giant Grendel together with fifteen of his subordinates, while part two portrays an aged Beowulf unfolding a mortal combat with a dragon, fifty years after.[2] He lost the passion when he slew Grendel.[3]

AppearanceEdit

PersonalityEdit

That being said, since the Beowulf in this work has been summoned in his golden age, he is a battle-maniac by nature. Seems that, if he were to meet Achilles or Heracles, he would end up entering a mode of "there is no choice but to talk with our fists!" Lacks most of the merits and demerits from Mad Enhancement, and even mutual understanding by means of conversation is possible. He possesses reason, and it is also possible to have a high grade conversation with him.[2]

As a King, he ruled over his people well, but his current state of mind is closer to a terrorist. He believes that creation and destruction are but two sides of a coin and destruction is only a stepping stone for creation. He might not be a suitable candidate for kingship and he shares this sentiment. His longs for destruction more than any king, and his savagery which allowed him to slay even dragons did not diminish even as he grow old. However, he is kind to the weak. (His people and females)[1]

Basically sees his Master as an equal or approaches them with minor superiority. Depending on situations, he would either agree or disagree with the Master. However, he is hardly a rational one, so he would most likely jump onto reckless gambles and risk his life to fulfill the mission assigned. While he has no desire for the grail, he would give everything he have to obtain it for the master simply because of their pleas.[1]

"Well, heroes are all mostly people sharp yet messed up in the head. My work is to pulverize the worst of these lot."

"As you live a life as a hero, you will definitely encounter these people. Despite having the ability to handle the problems themselves, they chose not to as they find it a bother to think and begged for help instead. My reply is this : "Shut up and do your duty.""

"Kingship was not a suitable job for me. I will not hold onto it again."

AbilitiesEdit

The etymology of Berserker; one of the Servant Classes, is the berserk from Norse mythology, and it has been told that Beowulf's name also has its origins in this berserk. However, he accomplished the feat of dragon slayer while retaining his reason even after having aged and does not display even a fragment of madness.[2]

While highly associated with the word Berserker, he never lost his sanity in life. Likewise, his Mad Enhancement merely makes him more rough, but with completely no enhancement in stats or weakening in reasoning. It is just to the degree of some ferocity being left, and there is no effect whatsoever to the Parameters.[2]

The dual swords he carries, Hrunting and Naegling, are said to be demonic swords, though they aren't where his true power lies.[2]

DevelopmentEdit

Creation and ConceptionEdit

“1st RULE: You do not talk about the HOLY GRAIL WAR. 2nd RULE: You DO NOT talk about the HOLY GRAIL WAR.”
Yuuichirou Higashide

Shimokoshi is the character designer for Beowulf.[1][2] Yuuichirou Higashide was in charge of the story details of Beowulf, basing the concept of his character on Tyler Durden of the film Fight Club.[1][4]
