Lancer's identity is Artoria Pendragon (Alter), manifested as Lancer due to her holy spear Rhongomyniad. She is also known as the King of Storm (嵐王, Ran'ō), Leader of the Wild Hunt. Compared to her Lancer counterpart, this Artoria rejects the Divine Spirit transformation process of Rhongomyniad, opting to remain as "Artoria Pendragon" rather than be known as "Goddess Rhongomyniad".
Differing from her younger appearance in life and as a Saber-class Servant, Lancer has a "figure that differs 'in portion.'" There are said to be many opinions on both her figure and weight as a Lancer, possibly caused by her eternally youthful body growing "in portion" due to the holy spear being possessed instead of Excalibur and Avalon or due to the spear itself causing "a portion" of the body to grow.
Lancer is said to be the same King of Knights as normal, possessing the same mentality regardless of having exchanged her sword for the holy spear.
