Goddess Rhongomyniad (女神ロンゴミニアド, Megami Rongominiado?), also known as the Lion King (獅子王, Shishi-Ō?), is the wandering goddess version of Artoria Pendragon from the same world as Bedivere's. She appears in the Camelot Singularity of Fate/Grand Order and forms the Knights of the Lion King.

ProfileEdit

BackgroundEdit

Goddess Rhongomyniad is from an alternate history where Bedivere never returned Excalibur to the Lady of the Lake.[1] The “Lion King”, who has the same appearance as Lancer Artoria, was not able to die when she was fated to die, and as a result, became a wandering ghost while keeping onto the Holy Lance. Because the “Lion King” held onto the Holy Lance and transformed into the “Goddess Rhongomyniad”, changing into a complete Divine Spirit in the process, this version of her is different in the inside compared to the normal Lancer Artoria; while she possesses the same appearance as Lancer Artoria, “Goddess Rhongomyniad” is essentially a different person.[2][3]

AppearanceEdit

Goddess Rhongomyniad has a similar appearance to Artoria, more specifically her Lancer version. However, her version of hetmet features white fur instead of golden one, and that while Lancer has strong, serene and heartful emerald eyes, Goddess Rhongomyniad instead has bright lime green soulless eyes, signifying the Artoria who lost her human heart.

PersonalityEdit

Compared to regular Artoria who merely suppressed her emotions, this Artoria has little if any emotion left in her. As a result of her becoming a Divine Spirit, she has lost all sight of human value and reason. Goddess Rhongomyniad does not see the value of human life, only seeing value of humanity as a whole. She believes her means of freezing and storing purely good human souls to preserve humanity eternally is the ideal of protecting them and bringing them happiness. This is in contrast to the regular Artoria, who believed merely sheltering the people will not grant them a happiness nor a future. As well her past self also believed that hard work, raising children, and leading fulfilling lives will bring prosperity to the people. However, Goddess Rhongomyniad will laugh if she finds something amusing, such as the prospect of getting a thank you kiss from Romani Archaman. Of course this may have been due to her humanity being restored when Excalibur was returned to her.

RoleEdit

Fate/Grand OrderEdit

Camelot/ZeroEdit

Goddess Rhongomyniad, calling herself the Lion King, arrives in the "Camelot" Singularity and summons all of the Knights of the Round Table, with the exception of Bedivere and Galahad. She gives them the choice to either aid her in her "Holy Selection" or side against her. Gawain, Lancelot, Agravain, Tristan, Mordred, and Gareth side with her, forming the Knights of the Lion King. After they kill the other knights, the Goddess Rhongomyniad grants each of them a Gift, with the exception of Agravain, who refuses to have one.

Goddess Rhongomyniad and her knights then set out to the Holy Land, killing all that oppose them, including the False Crusaders and their leader, who the knights defeat in a battle, where Gareth also sacrifices herself. Goddess Rhongomyniad then establishes the Holy City, where only those she allows can live.[4]

Camelot: The Sacred Round Table RealmEdit

Salomon: The Grand Time TempleEdit

Goddess Rhongomyniad is amongst the "Camelot" Singularity Servants assisting Chaldea against the Demon Gods Pillars. Her words suggest this iteration of her is the Lion King from the 6th Singularity.[5]

AbilitiesEdit

She wields the Holy Lance Rhongomyniad, a Divine Construct regarded as the "Spear of the End" and seen in the same light as Longinus. Due to her long usage of it, she has transformed into a Divine Spirit. She is capable of bestowing Gifts upon others, that grant them special abilities. She can also summon Servants with her own power alone.
