“O Lord, I entrust this body to you---”

Ruler


La Pucelle: The Crimson Holy Virgin (紅蓮の聖女ラ・ピュセル, Guren no SeijoRa Pyuseru?) is the suicide-type Noble Phantasm used by Joan of Arc.[2] It is a crystallized Conceptual Weapon that acts as an offensive interpretation of her burning at the stake, a subtype of Reality Marble that has the imagined landscape crystallized as a sword.[2][3] It uses the Sword of St-Catherine, which Ruler never swung once in her lifetime, as its catalyst, and manifests the flames which once burned her to death.[2] By using this Noble Phantasm, Ruler loses her own life. But in exchange for her life, she can annihilate anything in existence.[2][3] Its designated rank of C refers only to its pre-activated state while the sword is still sheathed. The EX rank after activating is because its pure destructive power cannot be calculated. These flames only destroy that which she thinks must be destroyed. In other words, this Noble Phantasm cannot be used against simply a strong enemy or out of emotions like hate. These flames exist in order to save something, and in the novels she decided to use this Noble Phantasm out of her sense of duty to save the future of humanity.[2]

DevelopmentEdit

In the original imagining of Fate/Apocrypha as a game, each Holy Grail War cycle was to end with the activation of this Noble Phantasm that she was stubbornly withholding until the end.[4]

Hirokazu Koyama designed the sword and the activation of La Pucelle. According to the Fate/Apocrypha material OTHER DESIGNS (page 122), Jeanne activates La Pucelle by throwing the sword up and catching it by the end of the blade. The flower on its pommel blooms, and the flames surge out of that like a great flower.
