Berserker of "Black" ("黒"のバーサーカー, "Kuro" no Bāsākā?) is the Berserker-class Servant of Caules Forvedge Yggdmillennia as part of the Black Faction in the Great Holy Grail War of Fate/Apocrypha. She was designed by Hoshizora Meteo for the original canceled online game project
Berserker is Frankenstein, Frankenstein's Monster (フランケンシュタインの怪物 フランケンシュタイン, Furankenshutain no Kaibutsu Furankenshutain?), the cyborg that appears in Mary Shelley's novel. An artificial lifeform created by the researcher Frankenstein; she was rejected by her creator when she professed a love for him. Fearful of her interests, her creator dismembered her and escaped to his birthplace in an Alpine village outside Geneva. Reassembling herself and tracking him on instinct, she began to recognize over time that though she was kind in nature, she was also an existence of cursed monstrosity. The understanding of the reasoning behind her creator's rejection drove her to anger and despair, and she took the lives of his family members, pursuing him across Europe in the aftermath. Her creator eventually underwent a mental breakdown and took his own life. At the loss of the subject of her love, hopes, and hatred, the automaton drowned herself in the icy waters of the Arctic.
Normally slow to respond in interpersonal interaction, she exhibits surprising agility and toughness in combat; in Berserk Mode, she executes commands with extreme faithfulness. Due to a lack of skill in expression, and fearful of her own monstrous nature, she maintains a shy silence that conceals her high intelligence and empathetic capabilities (except for the emotion of sorrow). Extremely mindful of energy conservation; if her Master leaves the lights on in the bathroom after use, she will turn it off for him.
Scream of the False Lifeform (Scream of Terror) (虚ろなる生者の嘆き(Scream of Terror), Utsuro Naru Seija no Nageki?): N/A
The Servant is capable of emitting an immense scream, temporarily robbing enemies and allies alike of their ability to think and respond; those who do not expect it or are incapable of the mental resilience to withstand it may temporarily lose their ability to breathe. The effectiveness of the skill is increased with activation of Mad Enhancement. Incidentally, in Berserk Mode, the Servant expresses approval with the phrase "Yaaa," and disapproval with the phrase "Uiii," but it is impossible to discern anything but madness.
Galvanism (ガルバニズム, Garubanizumu?): N/A
Unrestricted conversion and accumulation of prana and bio-electric energy. Thaumaturgical attacks involving no material existence -- wind manipulation, energy bullets, beam attacks -- are converted to electricity and rendered without effect, discharged into the environment. Absorbed electricity may be used to implement rapid self-repair and physical attribute reinforcement. Like Phlogiston and Ether, the concept of Galvinism, which explains organic activity as a bio-electric process, falls under the domain of Alchemy.
Bridal Chest: A Maiden's Chastity (乙女の貞節, Otome no Teisetsu?)
A large mace used by the Servant as a striking weapon, which gives off discharges electricity with the appearance of tree branches. In reality, the Servant's reactor core / heart is contained within the large spherical bulb, and the fin on the opposite end remotely transfers energy to the Servant's main body. With high efficiency, the implement continuously gathers energy wasted by the Servant or present in her surroundings, and is constantly manifested outside of combat to power her. If exposed to a high-prana environment -- for example, in the midst of combat -- the function of Galvinism and the Bridal Chest combine to qualify the Noble Phantasm as a "Type II Perpetual Motion Engine."
Blasted Tree: The Lightning Tree of Crucifixion (磔刑の雷樹, Takkei no Raiju?)
Use of the Bridal Chest in a suicide move -- the fin of the mace is planted into the ground, and the reactor's limiters are completely released, discharging all gathered electricity into the surrounding environment as an area of effect attack with target homing; momentarily giving the Noble Phantasm in the silhouette of a towering tree. May be implemented from the Servant's own body rather than the Bridal Chest if the enemy force is a single opponent within short range. Use of this technique results in permanent deactivation, but there is a low probability that a second Frankenstein's Monster will be materialized in the wake of the attack. However, in death, it would be impossible for the Servant to witness the results of her actions.
