Luviagelita Edelfelt (ルヴィアゼリッタ・エーデルフェルト, Ruviazeritta Ēderuferuto?), or simply Luvia (ルヴィア, Ruvia?) as she is better known in fandom, is a character from Fate/hollow ataraxia.

ProfileEdit

BackgroundEdit

Daughter of a distinguished lineage of magi, the Edelfelt, Luviagelita is their young and talented family head.[1] As a student in the Clock Tower, the Mage's Association academy, she is one of the candidates for the position of student president for the current academic term.[2]

She became acquainted with Rin Tohsaka after she began to study in the Clock Tower after the Fifth Holy Grail War. She finds in Rin a worthy rival due to their similarities; their encounters always result in fierce clashes.[1] After a year together, a silent agreement was forged within the Department of Mineralogy of Clock Tower that "Tohsaka and Edelfelt must not attend classes together". The facade that she built for herself was withering away after a decade of use and her bad temper was already starting to appear, but after Rin showed up her daily life improved.[2]

On a certain occasion, Luvia tried to reserve all 28 rooms in the top floor of the Norwich Students Dormitory entirely for herself, but that became impossible when Rin also asked for a room in the same floor. After a series of events that resulted in the recommendation letter that Rin got from a Lord being torn apart, a big fight broke out and a reception desk was destroyed in the process. Afterwards, both were forbidden from ever entering the dormitory again. So because boarding houses are too small, she bought a European-style mansion for herself to live in.

AppearanceEdit

Luvia has long golden blond hair styled entirely in large coils. She physically resembles Rin somewhat, furthering speculation that the younger Edelfelt sister from the Third Holy Grail War may have married into the Tohsaka family.

Similar to Rin, she wears ribbons in her hair. In contrast to her rival, Luvia's signature colour is blue; she wears a long blue dress with sleeves that are easily detachable for combat purposes.

PersonalityEdit

As long as Rin Tohsaka is not nearby, Luvia's attitude is always graceful, never blaspheming and displaying a beauty similar to that of a swan. Of course, that is all just a facade; as she is actually very competitive and suffers from perfectionist tendencies.[2]

Although wealthy, Luvia does not tolerate excessive spending. However, she knows that such spending of money is meaningful because aristocrats are aristocrats. She understands that commoners do not have good views about the aristocrats, but loves them strongly because she understands them. She accepts that her fate is to marry a high-class gentleman of noble birth, but her personal tastes are more towards a simple man.

She has a high elitism attitude as a noble and has always seen others from above. Luvia couldn't help loving professional wrestling deeply.[3]

RoleEdit

Fate/stay nightEdit

Fate Stay Night Unlimited Blade - Luvia

Luvia challenges Rin in a self-defense class, in Fate/stay night [Unlimited Blade Works].

After the True End of Unlimited Blade Works scenario, Shirou Emiya was employed part-time at Luvia's mansion.[4] In the epilogue episode of Ufotable adaptation, she is classmates with Shirou and Rin and lives in the same apartment building with them. Luvia openly flirts with Shirou, to which she and Rin ended up in a scuffle in a self-defense class. Shirou claims that he met Luvia when they were both lost in London.

She is mentioned by Rin at the end of the Heaven's Feel route once she returns to Fuyuki in a plane worse than economy class. Rin remembers Luvia mocking her by saying that if she got financial troubles, she can take her on as a maid and give her a monthly salary that equals the yearly pay of the cheap waitress down at the fourth street.

Fate/hollow ataraxiaEdit

During the Zelretch box incident, a telephone call connected to a Luvia of a parallel timeline three years in the future. A series of events that started with her delivering a important essay that she wrote led to she and Rin falling from the London Tower. They survived the incident thanks to the intervention of Shirou Emiya, and in the aftermath received the nickname of Mary of July (Luvia) and Poppins of July. Eventually, she and Shiro (who she calls Shero (シェロ, ?) became partners and started investigating a cruise ship casino called Fem's Casa.

Fate/unlimited codesEdit

LuviagelitaUCopening

Luvia arriving in Fuyuki in the opening.

She is given the title Lady Forklift (淑女のフォークリフト, Shukujo no Fookurifuto?) in Fate/unlimited codes. She is one of the three hidden characters in the arcade mode.

She was informed by the Edelfelt elder about their defeat in the Third Holy Grail War. She shares the same opinion with her elders that Fuyuki is a city lacking in charm and history. She decided to participate the Holy Grail War to avenge the disgrace of her predecessor in order to win the title.[3] However she acknowledges that the previous head of the family was too interested in elegance and extravagance to which she does not share such conceit. She decided to perform her showmanship by giving everything in order to defeat the enemy and to give her fans a good show. She looks forward to challenge Rin Tohsaka as she considers the Edelfelts are the world's most beautiful hunters and her skills are not to be taken lightly. She corrects herself when she almost calls herself as the world's beautiful hyena.

She encounters Berserker and Illyasviel von Einzbern, she is impressed with Berserker's muscle as she can tell him to be skilled at combat and very agile. She identifies Berserker as a wrestler with the striking force of a heavyweight, yet the speed and explosiveness of a welterweight. She acknowledges Berserker as a famous warrior and gets excited. She asked for his name, affiliation and active location. Illya calls her an idiot but she can tell Luvia was a magus and possibly a friend of Rin or her accomplice. Luvia reacted negatively with Illya statement and she calls her a homunculus scum. Illya further calls her an idiot and she describes Luvia to resembles Rin and question if they are two step-sisters.[3] Luvia was so offended that she may pass out and she cannot lose her cool until she defeated her enemy, she gave Illya a chance to take back those words. However Illya refused to take back her words and questions whether Luvia can take on Berserker. Luvia can tell Illya is from a good lineage but she considers her to have an air of country bumpkin. Luvia explains that the results of a battle cannot be judged solely on strength, the winner is the one who tries their best, who challenges themselves beyond their limits and the winner is the one who ignores all sense of instinct and pride. Although Illya considers a different kind of stupid from Rin but Illya thought she was kind of cool. Luvia defeats Berserker as she considers knocking out your opponent out cold would get them to shut up more quickly. It took a lot of effort for Luvia to throw Berserker but she is grateful to have had the opportunity to fight him.

LuviagelitaUCending

Luvia and Rin after their fight in the ending.

She encounters Rin in her last battle. Rin was surprise that Luvia managed to arrive even though she wasn't a Master, she doesn't care about the Holy Grail and Luvia just want to challenge Rin. Rin figured Luvia was someone who could take care of herself in a fight, but she didn't predicted her getting this far. Luvia declares she is the person who was selected to avenge her family defeat to the Tohsaka family in the last generation and she has absolutely no interest in the Grail. Her goal was to simply out perform Rin on the battlefield, and defeat Rin with her two fists. Rin finds it meddlesome to be targeted by a noble family. Luvia expressed that Rin is her rival and it was harmonious to have two such extremes to go head-to-head. Rin is uncertain whether it was harmony or fate but she is certain she is incompatible with Luvia like oil and water. Rin figures all there is left is to fight and Rin makes a rule that the loser has to listen to the winner. Luvia accepts this final battle until one of them can no longer fight and she won't stand for any whining when Rin loses.

Luvia kept coming in to grab Rin no matter how many punches or kicks. Luvia had caught Rin in holds, threw her down, and tried to break her, but Rin stood up with a smile on her face every time. After Luvia defeats Rin, the two collapse on the floor. They both complimented each other and became interested in each other as they questioned what kind of diet and training they've gone through. They both laughed and built a strange friendship in this battle.[3] They agreed that it's pretty ridiculous to be having these kinds of fights at their age and this petty stubbornness between them is a sign of immaturity. Rin wonders why Luvia nickname is "Lady Forklift" and not "Forklift Lady". Luvia decided to teach Rin about "showmanship" as she does not know much about professional wrestling.

  • Luvia and Frugar.
  • Luvia & Lord El-Melloi II

Luvia and her butler Crown travelled to the Adra Castle to claim its inheritance.

She was hostile to Lord El-Melloi II. She faces Gray with the intention of killing her, Luvia claims Gray's master to be the worst kind of Magus and the worst kind of person.

She later becomes cooperative with him.


Capsule ServantEdit

She is encountered in both Shirou and Rin route. She self proclaims herself as a girl genius who will one day become queen of not only the Capsaba world, but also the wrestling ring.

She considers hiring Shirou as an apprentice butler when he gave an advice to start her dream small. Shirou rejected the proposition of becoming her apprentice butler because he already knows what I want to be. Luvia was impressed with his sense of purpose and offers Shirou to become her manager if he wins.

Rin tells Luvia that she can be only be number 2 in the world as long as Rin existed and she doesn't care about the wrestling ring. Luvia considers Rin to be her rival and challenges her to an open-weight division no-time-limit single-round electrified barbed-wire deathmatch.

Other AppearancesEdit

  • Luvia's cameo appearance in Carnival Phantasm.

Her counterpart in Fate/kaleid liner PRISMA☆ILLYA has an active role.

She makes a brief cameo appearance in the EX Season episode of Carnival Phantasm.

In Type-Moon's April Fools Day 2008, she is a super heavyweight wrestler star known as the Great Luvia (グレート・ルヴィア, Gurēto Ruvia?) in the T Moon Fighting Spirit (Tムーン 闘魂, T mūn tōkon?). She has been called the jewel of the Fate Wrestling Federation because of her showy, orthodox fighting style. Even so, she has trouble with Dynamite Rin, who is a tough opponent that can skillfully escape grabs and avoids throw. She is the owner of Fuyuki Super Arena Dome. GGG tried to scout her but for some reason she became interested in the FWF stable and has stayed in that group. Her fight with Dynamite Rin came to a draw as the Referee Shinji Matou was knocked out by the two fighters powerful drop kicks.

AbilitiesEdit

Luvia specializes in Jewel Magecraft just like Rin, and is a Finn who is an expert in the use of the Gandr shooting curse.[2] She is also trained in the England-original Lancashire-style of martial combat (which is quite similar to pro-wrestling) and received the nicknames of "Hunting Dog of the Ring" and the "Forklift Lady" for it. Usually wears a blue dress, the sleeves of said dress are optional attachments that can be easily and quickly removed in times of battle.

DevelopmentEdit

Luvia was first voiced by Yukari Tamura in Fate/stay night Realta Nua. In Fate/unlimited codes and other works on she is voiced by Shizuka Itō.

Ryuji Higurashi commented that the ending of Luvia in Fate/Unlimited Codes is his favourite picture.[3]
