Archer (アーチャー, Āchā?) is an Archer-class Servant able to be summoned by the Protagonist in the Grand Orders of Fate/Grand Order.



Archer's True Name is Ishtar (イシュタル, Ishutaru?), a Pseudo-Servant summoned into the body of Rin Tohsaka.

Ishtar is the goddess of fertility of Babylonian mythology and one of many mother goddesses whose power is derived from the Earth Mother.[1][2][3] Her Sumerian divine name is Inanna (イナンナ, Inan'na?), and this name is actually the older one. Ishtar is her Akkadian divine name. A goddess of Venus, a goddess that rules over good harvests which brings prosperity to people and also a goddess that rules war and destruction.[1]

Said to be the most pampered, or rather, most beloved goddess by the other deities. Also famous for having numerous loves, it has been said that she would make advances with all her energies on those who she took a liking, regardless of those being humans or other deities. On the other hand, she also displayed a demon-like cruelty towards those who did not bow to her will.[1]

After Gilgamesh and Enkidu defeated Humbaba, Ishtar fell in love with Gilgamesh, proposing to the King of Heroes, but he quickly refused due to her reputation as a whimsical and cruel witch who "rendered men useless."[3] Ishtar was enraged by the insults towards her, so she sought out her father, Anu, to get her revenge. Clinging to him in tears, she asked for the Bull of Heaven to be released onto the earth.[3] It has also been said that the reason why she brought that divine beast to the Earth was because the King of Heroes from Uruk, Gilgamesh, did not answer to her temptations. Having even dispatched a fearsome divine beast called “Bull of Heavens” to the city of Uruk; at any rate, goddess who is a nuisance to others.[1] The duo once again worked together to defeat it, causing Ishtar to lose face and drive her rage further. To the other gods, she requested the death of one of the two, citing that one with a human body killing the beast of the gods was a sin. Her wish was granted, and Enkidu soon died due to being unable to defy the decree as a creation of the gods.[3]


This form is not that of the goddess Ishtar herself, but a pseudo-Servant condition in which a human that has a wavelength close to her own was made into a vessel.[1]

“My original self was more glamorous, but this body is also not bad.”



“Well then, I wonder if humans will survive this, or will they be extinct?”


She says that her role is to watch over humans in a way appropriate for a goddess, but that means to watch over while snickering. Truly, a (red) devil from Venus.[1]

In “Fate/GO”, she has manifested as a Pseudo-Servant by possessing a human. Since Ishtar is egoistical, she behaves while paying no regards to the possessed human, but her personality is receiving a great influence from that of the possessed human. Ishtar is both compassionate and cruel, but because the possessed human’s personality is more virtuous, her cruelty has withdrawn deep down and her good side is coming more to the surface.[1]

For Ishtar, the Master is “a human worth teasing”. Although she thinks of herself as being more eminent, since the personality of the possessed body is her base, she will never look down on humans. She will come in contact with him in an effective and friendly manner, but just as “a toy worth teasing”. But as their bonds become deeper, her natural disposition to take care of people and emotional weakness (she ends up empathizing with him) work against her, and he changes from “a toy worth teasing” into “my precious contractor, whose future is worth watching over”.[1]

Other appearancesEdit

In Fate/Extra CCC, Gilgamesh mentions that he will not use his full power for Hakuno Kishinami, he states an exception would be an Alter Ego using Ishtar as a base. He says BB has likely taken his personality into account when creating them, so it is unlikely to happen.

Gilgamesh in Fate/Prototype hates her greatly, describing the sentiment as "Women who are absolutely confident in their good looks are repulsive creatures!" He sees similarities between her and Manaka Sajyou.[4]


Her weapon-of-choice is the Heavenly Boat Maanna(?) (天舟マアンナ, ?), which is both an airship and a giant bow. Maanna is the boat of god that soars across the Mesopotamian world, and also a interstellar teleportation gate (Gate). Because she is now a pseudo-Servant, the warp function is normally being sealed. Ishtar can also use a spear, but this time she is sticking to act as an Archer. Image-wise, it is like an invader that came in flying from Venus to attack the Earth. Bibyu(?).[1]

Mana Burst (Jewel) (魔力放出(宝石), ?) is a skill that increases attack power by adding her excessive magic energy to the weapon. Originally, Ishtar’s divine power was free and unrestricted and mostly almighty. But, maybe as an influence of her possessed vessel, for some reason she is now unable to store her magic energy on anything other than jewels. A powerful Mana Burst skill, but because the process of charging jewels before firing is necessary, it is quite hard to put it to good use.[1]

Manifestation of Beauty (美の顕現, ?) is a skill that relates to Ishtar's fearsome charismatic nature as a goddess of beauty. A power to charm others. Despite of being in a condition of merely possessing another, it already surpasses the realm of men. Originally it was supposed to be a composite skill (gauge absorption, curse, skill-sealing) that had a strong temptation effect at its core, but thanks to the strong inclination of the possessed human, the restriction effects towards others were removed and it essentially became a simple Charisma skill. (Originally EX Rank, but it was reduced to B)[1]
