ProfileEdit

IdentityEdit

Berserker's True Name is Caligula (カリギュラ, Karigyura?), the third emperor of the Ancient Roman Empire and uncle of the later emperor, Nero. Ruling during the 1st century, Caligula was a beloved, wise ruler, but his later actions gave rise to legends of atrocity. He suddenly "became loved by the moon", having fallen into madness. He then ruled the empire through fear until his assassination a few years later.[1][2]

AppearanceEdit

PersonalityEdit

Berserker is a total sadist engrossed in sadism, seeking to perform atrocities and misdeeds upon all enemies who catch his eye. He is completely unmanageable due to Mad Enhancement, removing any means of self-restraint. Berserker possesses a fondness for both Roma and Nero even in his maddened state, allowing contact with either of them to possibly stop his rampages.[2] His wish to the Holy Grail is "to get rid of his madness". If it could be granted, he would wish to return to that time when he was called a wise king, when he told stories to the child of his little sister, Nero, sitting on his lap... To that time, before the Moon Goddess fell in love with him and filled his body with madness.[1]

RelationshipsEdit

Nero
Caesar
Romulus
Altera
He feels an unpleasant presence with Altera.[1]

RoleEdit

Fate/Grand OrderEdit

Septem: The Eternal Madness EmpireEdit

Caligula is one of the emperors summoned by Lev that leads the United Roman Empire. When Ritsuka and Mashu arrive in the Singularity, he and his army are assaulting Rome. However, Caligula retreats after he and his army are defeated by the combined forces of Nero Claudius and Mashu. He returns to the palace of the United Roman Empire, but Lev sends him out once again to kill his niece. Caligula soon confronts Nero and the Chaldea group at the Shaped Isle to kill Nero, but he is killed by them.

Salomon: Grand Time TempleEdit

He is among the "Septem" Singularity servants that fights against the Demon Gods of the Intelligence Room.

InterludeEdit

In his interlude Dimming Moonlight and My Precious, Caligula accompanies Ritsuka and Mash to Rome to defeat roman soldiers causing chaos in his niece's, Nero, Rome, and also to fix the historical inconsistency. Upon arrival, Caligula immediately attacks the roman soldiers that dared to devastate his niece's Rome. After driving off the rebellious soldiers, Caligula comments that Nero's Rome is more beautiful than the moon.

Fate/ExtellaEdit

Caligula is mentioned by Nero in a my room event.

AbilitiesEdit

Although extremely close in nature to an Anti-Hero, he has manifested as a Heroic Spirit for an unknown reason. It could either be a "prank from a Divine Spirit that presides over the moon", or possibly the potential demise of human history raising the mentality from the period where he was called a wise ruler, the reason that exists in the shadows of madness.[2]

Due to his Mad Enhancement, his parameters are increased but most reason is lost. Only the mission to expand the Roman Empire and make it prosper is not lost; thanks to it, if an ally approaches him citing Rome a luck check occurs, and if successful he restraints his rampage. If the contact is by a person with ties with Rome the check occurs with a plus. That is to say, if he is approached by the likes of Nero or Romulus he would be able to reliably restraint himself. However, such restraint is just a condition of standby, and it's not like perfect communication becomes possible.[1][2]

Glory of Bygone Days (在りし日の栄光, ?) is the skill that the memories of the four years when Caligula lived as a wise king don't soften his madness; they actually accelerate it. He obtains a plus modifier to his resistance against mental interference and the like, and he raises his strength parameter temporarily if fighting unarmed, but every time Caligula uses this skill he also suffers damage. The rampaging madness makes his spiritual core grate.[1]

Berserker fights primarily with his fists. His Noble Phantasm is Flucticulus Diana.
