Lancer (ランサー, Ransā?) is an enemy Servant in the Moon Cell Holy Grail War in Fate/Extra CCC. She is unique in that she switches between four different Masters as a Lancer-class Servant, Rin Tohsaka, Rani VIII, Shinji Matou, and Hakuno Kishinami, and she later acts as the Berserker-class Servant of Meltlilith. She is one of the Servants of the Protagonist of the Grand Order conflicts of Fate/Grand Order under both the Lancer class and Caster class.
Lancer's True Name is Elizabeth Báthory (エリザベート・バートリー, Erizabēto Bātorī?, lit. "Erzsébet Báthory"), the virginal fourteen year old aspect that had yet to become the monster Carmilla like her older aspect. She is given the keyword "Dragon's Daughter" (竜の娘, Ryū no Musume?), related to her nickname "Countess Dracula".
A real person, born in 1560, died in 1614. She was born into the one of the noble families of Hungary, the Bathory family which uses the fang of a dragon as its crest. One of the models for the vampire Carmilla. A wicked woman who bathed in the living blood of more than 600 women in order to preserve her own beauty.
The Bathory house was the family who held the majority of the influence within Eastern Europe, and she increased that, possessing the blood of the house of Habsburg which made for a lineage that would make her a purebred noble. However, whether it is do to the consanguineous marriages within the Bathory line or the effect of their luxuriant living environment, the family contained many insane and cruel individuals. Among her close relatives were a homosexual and a pedophile; a Satanist is hardly worth mentioning.
Elizabeth is not an exception and became quite infamous. In what is now present-day Slovakia, in Čachtice Castle, which resided within her own dominion, she killed more than 600 women and, in order to preserve her beauty, bathed in the blood she wrung from them... She loved those repulsive blood baths. This woman who killed many members of her fiefdom, even at the very end of her life, did not consider this a crime. In those days, there was a trend among the nobility of Hungary to not even consider humans who weren't nobles as "humans" so there were no problems with her murders.
One day she let a maidservant comb the hair she was so proud of. But the comb became caught in her hair, and in a vehement rage, she stabbed the maidservant with a hairpin. The maidservant's blood happened to fall upon the back of her hand, and she noticed that the skin that blood touched was smoother than usual. From now on, to preserve my beauty, I will bathe in the lifeblood of women, she thought—and did so.
Collecting blood became part of her daily routine, and after she changed residences to Čachtice Castle, it reached the point where young women of marriage age were disappearing from the rural villages within her dominion. (Or maybe, everyone came to know what was going on and were sneaking the women out in secret.) She became distressed since she was no longer able to collect blood from the rural villages and so collected the daughters of minor nobles under the pretense of teaching them proper manners or inviting them to banquets. And those daughters, coming together for the banquet, dressed in fancy dresses, completely unaware of what would happen, were struck on the head.
In addition to having their blood drawn, they would have hot irons thrust into their mouths, their entire bodies stabbed with pins, and other kinds of tortures. She would make her servants rip off the skin of their own daughters so she could enjoy the anguished faces of both the parent and the child. On the other hand, in regards to torturing men, tales of her enjoying killing them would not be surprising.
To Elizabeth, killing the common people in droves was a daily life "without any unusual events." 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 the people completely sealed her, who was already feared as a demon, away. The people whisper. To see her figure is frightening. To hear her voice is frightening. Simply bringing to mind the memories which had lost her, the memories from which they had removed her, is frightening. The father who brought her into this world. 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 without 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 notice the smell of rotting food, confirm that her life had ended.
From thereon, she became legend as the Blood Countess.
Her personality is considered to be similar to Luviagelita Edelfelt. She self proclaims herself as an idol and her demonic singing makes her both a rival for Saber in both name and reality. Elizabeth makes a habit of referring to Hakuno, depending on their gender, as either a "little squirrel" if they are female or as a "pig" if they are male when speaking to them.
Caster describes her as personification of narcissism and an unsightly woman with an unsightly appearance, upbringing, ideology, disposition, and senses. Though she appears prideful, it is not directed towards anyone. Others do not see the truth behind it, but she is a "laughingstock" who, in treating humans as pigs, is doing nothing but holding her head high in front of a bunch of pigs. She does not understand love, so she is the "most unmanageable monster of this world", and although she takes pride in her beauty, she can be called rotten like trash within.
Prior to her imprisonment in the ice capsule program constructed by Rin and Rani, Lancer displayed her immense claustrophobia and autophobia due to the traumas of her past punishment for her crimes, being locked away all alone in small chambers. She screams for Hakuno to slay her as she would rather die them be imprison in isolation again.
In Chapter 1, Lancer first appears as Rin's Servant however after their defeat Lancer abandons Rin.
In Chapter 2 - Girls laboratory, Lancer becomes Rani's Servant, only to be defeated again and is seemingly deleted.
Elizabeth returns alive as the next sentinel however she changed class into Berserker in Chapter 5 with Shinji as her new master. When Shinji was attacked by Meltlilith, Meltilith becomes Berserker's new master. After Hakuno defeated her, she is sealed away by Rin and Rani. Lancer screams for Hakuno to kill her as she could not bear the thought of being locked away again.
Elizabeth becomes Lancer again and makes her final appearance in Chapter 7 when she becomes Hakuno's temporary Servant to help them fight their Servant's zero model. Afterwards, she leaves Hakuno to become an idol.
She is called Eli-chan (エリちゃん, Eri-chan?) in Fate/GUDAGUDA Order.
She is featured in Fate/EXTRA Gone Wild! Casko!? where she is seen without horns and is wearing the female Tsukumihara Academy uniform.
Lancer also has the capacity to be summoned under the Berserker class, and she switches to it during the events of the story. Her Mad Enhancement is very low, allowing her to retain her reason. There is not much benefit to the skill, turning her Strength and Endurance into a state that is more "don't care about pain" than anything else. She instead has Mental Disorder, a state of the mind falling ill and a mental "super armor" ability. Rather than the common madness added to a Berserker, she becomes incapable of feeling the pain of others and unable to sense the mood in the surroundings.
She displays two different Noble Phantasms, Kilenc Sárkány and Báthory Erzsébet. The first is utilized under the Lancer class, while the second is utilized under the Berserker class. She continues to utilize Bathory Erzsebet as the Protagonist's Servant. Her Territory Creation allows her to build up a prison-castle and that is mainly used in confining girls. According to the records, the master of the castle would capture five virgins a day, execute three for the sake of bathing in blood, and torture to death one as if a pet. She gave the last remaining the right of challenging various fates:
- "As it is, I'll be killed"
- "Plan a escape, but be killed after being betrayed by my comrades"
- "Be caught by the palace guards and killed"
- "Falling from the castle and having an accidental death"
- "…barely escaping alive and prosecuting the demon".
Fate's odds of "successfully escaping" are 1/1000.
She displays excellent Torture Techniques, granted plus modifiers when using utensils of torture. She has a wide range of methods, including locking captured humans in an Iron Maiden and squeezing their blood, tormenting and driving them mad with finger-breakers or restraining devices. At times she will bite at fingers, arms, nape of necks or breasts and even go as far as biting them off. Her Charisma, the coercion as a member of the ruling class, is granted on rank up against women due to a special transmission aid. Though she loves to torture men through torture utensils, she displays an unusual fastidiousness towards men and rarely comes into contact with them directly.
- Le sang des Hongrie: The fresh blood like hot water (鮮血は湯水の如く, Senketsu wa yumizu no gotoku?) - A self skill that restore her HP at the end of the turn. It uses 20MP.
- Skála Sárkány: The dragon scale like a precipice (竜鱗は絶壁の如く, Ryūuroku wa zeppeki no gotoku?) - Strengthens her offense when using GUARD. It uses 30MP.
- Szerelem álmodik: Escapism of the romantic dream (恋愛夢想の現実逃避, Ren'ai musō no genjitsutōhi?) - It uses 40MP.
- Lert sügér Tran: Unavoidable invisible hare-hunting (不可避不可視の兎狩り, Fukahi fukashi no usagigari?) - She throws her spear between her two legs and it causes physical damage and inflicts paralysis stat to the enemy. It uses 40MP.
- Estet Repülés: Top heartless night flight (絶頂無情の夜間飛行, Zecchō mujō no yakan hikō?) - She sits on her spear and lunges towards the enemy, although she has troubles pulling it out from the enemy. It causes physical damage to the enemy and uses 70MP.
- Adó Kínzás: The torture like a tax payer (拷問は血税の如く, Gōmon wa ketsuzei no gotoku?) - She throws her spear with love and showers herself with the enemy's blood. Causes physical damage and HP recovery from enemy. It uses 50MP.
- Vér Salgóvár: Thoroughly anticlimax (徹頭徹尾の竜頭蛇尾, Tettōtotsubi no ryūtōdabi?) - She swings her tail towards her enemy, it causes physical damage and when the enemy is using GUARD, it inflicts stun. It uses 30MP.
Lancer has been demonized by the Innocent Monster (無辜の怪物, Muko no Kaibutsu?, localized as "Seraphic Monstrosity") skill that uses the image produced from one's deeds in life to distort their past and way of being, which ends up transforming their abilities and appearance. Her form is due to the deeds she practiced in life, unlike Vlad III, another who holds the same skill, being looked down upon as a monster after death due to the work of a novelist. Though she looks like a demon, her horns and tail are those of a dragon, and though her fangs look like those of a vampire, they are also those of a dragon. Her lungs have been turned into a spirit world, attaining tremendous lung capacity and a Dragon Breath attack through the means of ultrasonic waves. Despite being the ability of the strongest of the Phantasmal Species, she seems to be forcing herself because its power is low.
The form is not a forgery caused solely through the means of Innocent Monster, but rather brought about from the dragon's blood mixed within her. The source is crest of the Báthory family, a shield coat of arms patterned after a red fang that represented the dragon's gallantry, vigorousness, and the brutality of never letting the enemy live. It grants her Magic Resistance (対魔力, Tai Maryoku?, localized as "Anti-Magic") of the same grade as King Arthur, another with dragon blood. She has a reverse scale like that of a Chinese dragon around the area of her coccyx. After having it seen, she becomes red-faced due to embarrassment, has a panic attack, approaches the person who looked, and presents them with the two choices of "Will you be killed by me? or Will you marry me?"

01 - Kilenc Sárkány: Dragon Cry Thunder Voice
The dignity of a thunder dragon, considered a weather spirit in Hungary since long ago, converted into a Noble Phantasm. Sárkány is that dragon's name.
It amplifies sound and vibrations and, via that resonance, can call forth wind and rain. Its true function is to amplify the inherent majesty and charisma, the soothing waves, the spite that crushes just be being heard, or simply just the volume of its owner's voice nine-by-nine times. The singing voice of a demon that destroys and tramples not just the body of those who hear it but the heart as well.
02 - Daughter of Dragons
This Servant is incarnated as a demon due to the skill "Innocent Monster." Though her horns and tail appear to be those of a demon, they are actually those of a dragon. It seems those protruding fangs are not a mark of her being a vampire but a mark of her being a dragon.
"Innocent Monster" is a skill that, based on the image produced by their actions during their lives, twists one's past and way of life, transforming one's abilities and appearance. Vlad III, who holds the same skill, was held in contempt as a monster based on a certain novelist's work, but she received this treatment based upon her deeds while alive.
03 - Torture Techniques
Equivalent to rank A. Torture techniques par excellence.
When using torture instruments, she receives a damage bonus. In her case, she would shut the people she captured into iron maidens in order to wring the blood from them, drive them crazy with devices that would remove their fingers or implements that would bind their bodies, and on occasion, she would struck by and follow through with the idea to gnaw and bite off their fingers or arms, the napes of their necks, or nipples. Her cruel deeds are wide-ranging.

01 - Territory Creation [B]
Constructs a prison-castle and confines girls therein. According to the record, the lady of this castle would capture five virgins a day, execute three of them to bathe in their blood, and treat one as a pet so as to kill them with relish.
The final one remaining was given the right to challenge her fate, the possibilities including: "Stay and be killed," "Be betrayed by the people I planned my escape with and be killed," "Be captured by the castle guards and be killed," "Fall from the castle and die by accident," "Barely escape with my life and bring the demon to justice."
As a side note, the chances of achieving the fate where one "escapes successfully" is 1/1000.
02 - Dragon Breath [E]
The torrent of mana that dragons, the strongest of the Phantasmal Species, can release. Even though she's been turned into a dragon by the skill "Innocent Monster," she seems to be straining herself on some level so the power is low.
03 - Charisma [C]
Exemplifies her ability to coerce others based on her position as a member of the ruling class. Due to special circumstances in her legend, it goes up a rank against women. In regards to interaction with men, she is unusually fastidious; though she loves with touch them with implements, direct contact is rare.

01 - Bathtub of Blood
A bathtub of blood: One day, she let a maidservant comb the hair she was so proud of. But the comb became caught in her hair, and in a vehement rage, she stabbed the maidservant with a hairpin. The maidservant's blood happened to fall upon the back of her hand, and she noticed that the skin that blood touched was smoother than usual.
From then on, she decided to bathe in the lifeblood of women to preserve her beauty - or so it is believed.
Collecting blood became part of her daily routine, and after she changed residences to Čachtice Castle, it reached the point where young women of marriage age had disappeared altogether from the rural villages within her dominion. (Or perhaps everyone came to know what was going on and hid their daughters indoors.)
Finding it difficult to collect blood from within her territory any longer, she collected the daughters of minor nobles under the pretense of teaching them proper manners or inviting them to banquets. It is said that many of those daughters were decapitated at these banquets, still in their fancy dresses, before they knew what was happening.
In addition to drawing blood, she is said to have thrust hot irons into their mouths, stabbed their entire bodies with pins, and other kinds of tortures. She would make her servants rip off the skin of their own daughters so she could enjoy the anguished faces of both the parent and the child.
On the other hand, tales of her torturing or killing men for pleasure are strangely absent.
02 - Personal Background I
Personal Background I: A real person, born in 1560, died in 1614. She was born into one of the noble families of Hungary, the Bathory family which used the fang of a dragon as its crest.
One of the models for the vampire Camilla. A wicked woman who is believed to have bathed in the lifeblood of more than 600 women in order to preserve her own beauty.
The Bathory house was the family who held the majority of the influence within Eastern Europe, and on top of that, she also possessed the blood of the house of Habsburg which made for a lineage that would make her a purebred noble.
However, whether it is do to the consanguineous marriages within the Bathory line or the effect of their luxuriant living environment, the family contained many insane and cruel individuals. Homosexuals, pedophiles and Satanists were not uncommon among her relatives.
Elizabeth was not an exception and became quite infamous. In Čachtice Castle, which lay in her territory in what is now present-day Slovakia, she is believed to have killed more than 600 women and, in order to preserve her beauty, enjoyed bathing in the blood she wrung from them... a repulsive bloodbath.
Though she killed many members of her fiefdom, she was not charged with any crime until the end of her days. In those days, there was apparently a trend among the nobility of Hungary to not even consider humans who weren't nobles as "humans." Her murders did not cause any problems.
...Yes. Not until a single girl returned alive from her prison-castle and rushed to the Vatican.

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 - 狂化 [E-]
０２ - 精神異常 [A]
０３ - 対魔力 [A]
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.

Fond of Cooking (Wish to be a Beloved Wife):
Elizabeth’s second SG.
Though Elizabeth herself says she likes cooking, this is not a simple fondness for the act of preparing food, like that of the red-mantled Archer. Elizabeth’s fondness for cooking comes from a desire to be praised by or to monopolize the person she likes. Essentially it amounts to nothing but a desire to be beloved as a wife. Her skill in cooking is utterly lacking.
We can infer that as the fondness for cooking appears as the apex of Elizabeth’s wish to be a wife, she then stresses meals. Or perhaps it’s part of her draconic instincts.
Though Elizabeth shares her love of song with Saber and her wish to be a beloved wife with Caster, what lies at the bottom of those wishes is completely different.
To confirm her beloved’s love — preparing food as a method keep a husband’s attention does not come from an “equal relationship.” She would “bestow meals” to her husband as a noble. It’s no different from feeding an animal. It contains none of the “romance” she longs for. The controlling disposition hard-wired into her devours even her meagre dreams.
Elizabeth’s third SG. We would like to leave just what constitutes “purity” to the reader’s imagination.
Servants are revived in the form that represents golden age of their lives. So Elizabeth appears as an unwed daughter of house Báthory, a young girl in love with love…one assumes.
An idol must be pure as snow. Forget romance, the moment she comes to know love her shine is lost. As long as she immerses herself in the idol business, this SG will be eternally indestructible.
 Fate/EXTRA material - Encyclopedia: Elizabeth [Servant], p.164-166 [T]
Elizabeth shows up in CCC as an if Lancer*see note at end.
The Master who summons her is Run Ru.
It’s not clear if she is Run Ru’s original Servant, or if she took the place of Black Lancer through the events of CCC (At the branching point a bit after the start of the game).
All we know is that in the time line where BB exists, Run Ru’s Servant is not Vlad III, but rather this young girl.
Her true name is that of a historical woman who was a mass serial killer and torturer; Elizabeth Bathory.
As a Servant she is summoned with the body and appearance she had during her golden days, which were the days when she found herself to be most beautiful. Summoned as a Heroic Spirit as she was before her marriage and with her body and character being that of when she was 14. As her 14 year old self she retains only two things. First, her dreams of love and the romance oriented mentality she had before her marriage. Second, memories about the nightmare that was her imprisonment as an evil creature shortly before her death. Because of this, her existence as a Servant is a confusing mix of her time as a young noble lady, and the time she was assaulted by that crazed nightmare.
Wearing a cyber-goth-loli dress, she has immoral devil horns (actually dragon horns), and the protruding fangs of a little devil (actually dragon fangs), and a lance that can double as a microphone stand. Her design doesn’t seem to reflect her as a proper Heroic Spirit.
She is a self-appointed “Idol Servant.”
Although those around her always see her as being a bit socially awkward, Elizabeth is always serious about perfectly acting as an idol using both mind and body.
She uses the personal pronoun 私 (watashi), and she refers to other people in a derogatory fashion as “pig,” “squirrel,” “rabbit,” and the names of other inferior animals.
Her use of words is generally like that of a noble person, however from time to time she mixes in some slang used by modern high school girls. She says a lot of things that makes it seems like she enjoys tormenting the people around her, but rather than simply being extremely sadistic, she’s more of an innocent pure sadist. While BB has fun getting to know the protagonist, Elizabeth doesn’t even see her opponents as similarly living beings. (Sadistic behavior is just one way to express love, and her character deviates from the historical version in that she doesn’t focus on a “Sadistic desire to kill” but rather “Sadism that’s born from love”).
Her alignment is chaos and evil.
Outgoing, strong spirited, active.
She values narcissism above all.
High class, yet always with the high horsed idol attitude. She is cruel and cold.
Completely unable to understand the pain of others, she has a mental disorder where only after seeing someone in pain does she recognize “this creature is human.”
She may seem sadistic, but to her harming and causing pain to others is no different from breathing.
To Elizabeth, inducing the suffering of humans (who are all lower level creatures than herself) is her duty.
She is an incarnation of nobility, and seriously carries out her responsibility to rule and manage the masses. From this perspective she is very diligent and responsible towards her work.
The problem is that to her, ruling and managing the masses means nothing more than their torture.
“I don’t give a shit about the Grail and the human race. I wouldn’t even care a bit if civilization were completely destroyed. There’s only one thing that’s important. And that’s that I’m more beautiful than anyone else for all of eternity!
You understand, right? Why don’t you all go die like the pigs you are? The only thing you could ever be good for is dying so I can bathe in your blood you useless slaves!”
When Elizabeth was alive she was extremely attached to her own beauty, and taking this to the extreme is what brought her to carry out immoral and criminal actions. She would steal away people’s daughters, and after plenty of torture, she would slaughter them.
It’s said that she bathed in a bath filled to the brim with the blood of young girls as a way to preserve her youth.
To Elizabeth, her own beauty was an undisputed matter of course. In order to preserve her beauty, anything was permitted, no matter how heinous the action may be. Any action carried out to preserve her beauty was just part of the natural way things should be.
Although she is often misunderstood as someone who killed for pleasure, Elizabeth never took pleasure in killing. She was simply driven into a rage by the ugly and inferior bodies of others, and this rage was then beaten into the bodies of her victims.
Trembling in joy and excitement and exclaiming “This is the best!” was something that she only came to know after becoming a Servant, as it is part of her job as a Japan-style idol.
After becoming a Servant, she completely devoted herself to becoming the greatest and strongest idol. Her rival is Red Saber.
Only after Elizabeth became a Servant did she first experience the girlish happiness and fun of having a rival.
One thing to note is that because she had no interest in anything other than her own beauty, sexual knowledge and experience is completely alien to her.
To Elizabeth men are no more than Servants, or a source of money, or sometimes givers of girlish, cute gifts (Although it seems that those who adored her beauty often met a bad end). When it comes down to it men are nothing more than pigs.
On the other hand, as far as Elizabeth in concerned, women are no more than slaves. The women around her were sometimes mothers or lovers, but in the end they were just raw materials to help preserve her beauty. Ultimately, they were like livestock; nothing more than food to sate her appetite.
In CCC the female ego is a main theme, and there we have highlighted “the stubbornness a woman holds about her appearance.”
The BBs are focused on the feelings that a girl has for their lover, and the feelings that a perverted devil would direct at the world, but Elizabeth is focused solely on her own happiness. Although Elizabeth is responsible for carrying out cruel physical punishment, she has not once encountered sexual pleasure. This goes to show how pure she is.
Also, like Vlad III, through the skill “Innocent Monster” she is partially transformed into a monster.
Her horns are not the horns of a devil but the horns of a dragon.
Actually part of her body (around her tailbone) is covered in scales. If seen she becomes extremely embarrassed and her face turns bright red, after that the person who saw her scales will face the romantic-comedy like choice of being killed by her or marrying her.
The following is an inside story. Towards the end of CCC Rin talks about how “Lancer’s karma is decreasing.” However this is not because she has committed any good deeds.
Simply, the actions of Elizabeth (who is working hard for the protagonist) end up saving more people than she killed when she was alive. Her change in karma is due to the judgment of the emotionless Moon Cell. Thus her karma decreases, but at the point when she becomes free, the weight of her sins will remain forever unchanged.
