Dragon Kind (竜種, Ryū Shu?) are considered the pinnacle of the Phantasmal Species. They are members of the Transcendent Kind, and are extensions of the world that were created in a form that is independent from nature with intelligence. They have members in all three classes of Magical Beasts, and they are considered to be the greatest species within each corresponding class. Due to their being Monstrous, Phantasmal, and Divine class dragons, they have been involved with mankind since before the Age of Gods, and left many legends in the field of thaumaturgy due to having freely intermixed with humans in the past.
Dragons are creatures that generate magical energy merely by breathing, their lungs acting as spiritual worlds, and they possess traits from other types of monsters. It is possible for a human to have the blood of a dragon, whether induced artificially like King Arthur or from having Mixed-Blood like Elizabeth Bathory. Simply having their blood within them grants humans high level Magic Resistance able to easily dispel magecraft from the Age of Gods, and King Arthur has a Magic Core that far surpasses the Magic Circuits of humans. Dragons and humans are generally incompatible with each other, but, while dragons are creatures that devour humans by simply existing, conflicts between them are for the most part caused by humans taking action first in order to gain something. Those who attack humans first would generally be looked down upon.
Dragons each have an attribute, and their strongest weapon, Dragon's Breath (ドラゴンブレス, Doragon Buresu?), capitalizes upon it by using breath to spread it excessively over the wide area of effect as a torrent of mana. Red dragons carry flame, blue dragons carry thunder, black dragons carry acid, and Elizabeth Bathory carries soundwaves. There are also white dragons, gold dragons, silver dragons and green dragons, however it is unknown what kinds of breaths, they can produce. The damage value, according to a certain rulebook, is the same as the constitution value of the dragon. Due to having a constitution value which transcends that of humans by far, it is not unreasonable to think of a single dragon being able to destroy a whole country when equally spreading the damage from its breath throughout a whole army.
There are different types, the western dragons being considered demons and the strongest of the Phantasmal Species, and Chinese Dragons (龍, Ryū?) being treated as divine existences and invincible beings that do not even need to fight. The Chinese dragons do contain a rough spot, a Reverse Scale (逆鱗, Gyaku Uroko?) below their chins, that when touched, causes them to rage and devastate the earth with their rampaging power. It shows that even such perfect existences also display a deplorable side.
List of DragonsEdit
The Colchis dragon (コルキスの竜, Korukisu no Ryū?) appears in the Greek Mythology of Jason. The Colchis dragon itself is noted to be weak enough that it would not make much of a difference against Heroic Spirits of high caliber. Argon Coin has the ability to summon the Colchis dragon but Medea does not have the capability to utilize it as she lacks the necessary spells to summon any Phantasmal Beasts.
The Dragon that appeared in the epic poem of "Beowulf" appeared in the second part of the story. Part two portrays an aged Beowulf unfolding a mortal combat with the dragon, fifty years after. It has been said that the dragon who fought the aged Beowulf would amass treasures and spit out fire. It could be said that its existence is like an archetype of the dragons that appear in fantasy stories.

Name: Elizabeth Bathory
Noble Phantasm: Báthory Erzsébet (Demoness of Fresh Blood)

01 - Báthory Erzsébet: Demoness of Fresh Blood
A Noble Phantasm that summons the castle that Elizabeth lived in and ruled over in her lifetime and turns into into a stage where she is prominent. The worst and most disgusting Noble Phantasm that Elizabeth, who began to dream of being the ultimate idol after becoming a Servant, possesses.
The castle's name is the prison-castle Čachtice. As the demonic castle where hundreds of girls were tortured to death, as the place where Elizabeth soaked in a blood bath full of the living blood of those girls, it maintains the largest amount of magical energy and charm.
The tune where the musical talent that... one or two on Earth would dispute and this castle which is a stage modded with giant amps are combined, truly this is hell on Earth.
A collaboration with the Golden Theater cannot be allowed.
02 - Dragon's Reverse Scale
In the west, dragons are "monsters," but in China, DRAGONS are a god-like existence. If dragons are the strongest of the Phantasmal Species, then DRAGONS are invincible... They are creatures who have no need to fight.
But even those DRAGONS have a defect. When the scale under their chin is touched, the DRAGON will fly into a rage and devastate the earth with their rampaging power.
In this way, even perfect beings have disappointing parts. Elizabeth is no exception to this tradition, and the scale is on a part of her body (near the tailbone). If it is seen, she will become red-faced with embarrassment, and after she is done panicking, she will approach to person who say it with two choices: "Will you be killed by me?" or "Will you marry me?"
03 - Supersonic
Due to her skill "Innocent Monster," Elizabeth has been incarnated as a dragon demon of mixed blood.
Dragons have the strongest weapon which makes use of all their attributes: Dragon Breath. If a red dragon, fire; if a blue dragon, electricity; if a black dragon, acid. Their breath has a wide area of effect.
...According to a certain rulebook, the breath's damage value is the same as their physical damage. That physical damage has long since surpassed humans, but when you think of it being spread equally among the members of an entire army, for a single dragon to destroy an entire country seems reasonable.
Elizabeth's Dragon Breath is made up of ultrasonic waves. Since she has been incarnated as a demon, her lungs have become converted spiritual worlds so a terrifying lung capacity has become hers. With the amplification provided by her Noble Phantasm, Elizabeth's voice could be called a noise that could resound through a portion of the Tokyo Dome and destroy it.
This is the moment that Saber's rival, in both name and reality, is born.

01 - Mad Enhancement [E]
A skill that transforms one into a brute and raises one's abilities.
...But as Elizabeth still possesses her reasoning abilities, the benefits from this are very low. Rather than effecting her abilities or endurance, it's simply made it so that she "does not feel pain."
02 - Mental Disorder [A]
The mind has fallen ill. It is not the Mad Enhancement that Berserkers usually possess. Being unable to feel the pain of others or read the mood of one's surroundings. Has the ability of mental super armor.
03 - Magic Resistance [A]
A hidden skill that even the person herself is unaware of.
It was believed that she was a fabrication created through "Innocent Monster," but the blood of dragons truly is mixed with her own.
She is endowed with a Magic Resistance of the same caliber as the Saber of Fate/stay night.
It source is the Bathory family's coat of arms. That family's coat of arms was a shield-shape based on red fang, symbolizing the dragon's bravery, strength, cruelty in never leaving an enemy alive.

01 - Headache Sufferer
Headache sufferer: When she was alive, she was an infamous, abnormal murderer, but when you compare her's with the cruel hobbies of people like her, her characteristic is that she is wide-ranging.
In the case of the majority of serial killers, those who enjoy killing people have murder as their foundation, those who enjoy pain have pain as their foundation, those who eat people have cannibalism as their foundation; they set up their own tendency in cruel hobbies. But she is not consistent. Disturbingly, she is believed to have enjoyed all of the above.
But on the other hand, she is lacking the abnormal conduct that serial killers in recent years have displayed, such as raping and killing, taking a part of the body to form a collection, and using people as ingredients in food.
According to one theory, she suffered from horrible headaches. It is said that she was released from these headaches only when she abusing others.
Of course, the authenticity of this cannot be confirmed.
Though Elizabeth is noted only for her abnormality in this way, she also left behind good deeds. At the age of 15, she married her husband, Ferenc II and protected their dominion in his stead during the war, as he had a tendency to be absent.
The two got along extremely well as husband and wife, and records indicate that Elizabeth invested funds into allowing domestic students to study abroad and assisting returning students in their studies, as well as planning the promotion of the arts and sciences within the country.
There were rumors that she was interested in black magic, but it seems that this was actually the use of medicinal herbs to make something akin to what is known in the present day as a facial mask.
Even the episode where she killed more than 600 women and the trial in absentia are theorized by some to be mostly false, derived from folklore and the Hungarian Habsburgs' plan to expel her from their circles.
However, even with that, it cannot be said that all her actions were false charges. Even if the torture devices and cruelty drama are folklore, that she enjoyed killing people is clear from the circumstantial evidence.
02 - Personal Background II
Personal background II: To Elizabeth, killing the common people in droves was her "ordinary" daily life. If there is anything that could be considered her misfortune, it is that there were no people to rebuke her abnormality, to teach her that her deeds were atrocities.
Several years after she started taking blood, her cruel acts came to extend even to the daughters of the aristocracy and she finally received the indictment that her character deserved.
The year was 1611. At the trial conducted in the actual person's absence, she was given a guilty verdict and imprisoned within one of the rooms of Čachtice Castle.
And just like that, the people completely sealed her, who was already feared as a demon, away.
The people whispered. To see her figure was frightening. To hear her voice was frightening. Simply bringing to mind the memories of losing their daughters, the memories of giving her their daughters of their own volition, was frightening.
The fathers who gave away their daughters. Elizabeth's relatives. Her compatriots in aristocratic society, as if to hide their own feelings of guilt, concealed her prison with stone.
The room that Elizabeth used in her final days... her prison in the basement of the castle contained nothing but a small slit to allow food to be passed to her. And, in that room with an exit or windows, that room which was plastered up from the outside, she continued to ask, "Why?" until her final moments.
"Why? Why?" "I didn't do anything bad."
They say that her voice could be heard through the stone that imprisoned her, but it's is also said that due to the soldiers finding it annoying, the transom was sealed, and she could no longer be heard.
After that, there was no one who saw her firsthand while she was alive. August 21, 1614, the soldiers noticed the smell of rotting food, confirming that her life had ended.
From thereon, she became legend as the Blood Countess.

Q: If Caster had a skill (dragon summoning skill) that let her use the Golden Fleece, would she be able to escape the rank of being the weakest Servant? Also, will the spirit in the Golden Fleece ever see the light of day? He's cute so I wanted to see him in color.
A: She'd move up to the middle rank, I think. Oh, but, the Colchis dragon isn't that strong right....
