Rider (ライダー, Raidā?) is a Rider-class Servant able to be summoned by the Protagonist in the Grand Orders of Fate/Grand Order.

ProfileEdit

IdentityEdit

Rider's True Name is Marie Antoinette (マリー・アントワネット, Marī Antowanetto?), the Queen of France of the 18th Century whose genealogy is related to the House of Habsburg. The queen consort of Louis XVI. An ephemeral lady. Born between Holy Roman Emperor Francis I, a person originating from the House of Lorraine as its Duke, and Maria Theresa, who is a descendant of the great aristocratic German household, the House of Habsburg, Marie was born and raised as an existence that symbolizes the "rule of nobility" of the European world, and during a chaotic period of human history where the right of monarchy was no longer absolute, she lost her life in a changing world.[2][1]

HistoryEdit

Loved as a symbol of royal authority, being blessed while living—Destested as a symbol of royal authority, shown contempt as she ended up dead. Protruding eyes of the nobility, political marriage, living the royal court life, and then, revolution and execution. It is possible to say that Marie's way of life and manner of death is the embodiment of royal authority as an evident "idol".[1]

Although a target of hatred by many people before, during and after the Age of Revolution, Marie's reputation has been restored in modern France; during famines, she reduced court expenses to make donations, personally demanded for the nobility to provide support to the people and such—it has thus being confirmed that she was a woman that thought of the people.[2][1]

There was a tragedy. Still————

Marie will never wish to the Holy Grail, for the erasure of her tragedy. She will only fulfill her own role. In other words, radiance to the sky. Blessings to the earth.

————Happiness to the people.[2]

AppearanceEdit

Marie is endowed with the greatest body and good looks as the result of her being born so as to become a beautiful monarch that will be loved. Her attire is based on the concept of an "Idol Queen".[1]

During the Moon Festival event, Marie commented that in life, no matter how much food she ate, all the food would go to her breasts, making that the more she ate, the bustier she would get. d'Eon then confirmed it and stated through that, her Majesty would grow to have one of the finest bodies in France.[3]


PersonalityEdit

An image (idol) from birth. Soothing the masses with a smile, earning adoration with a gaze.[2] Marie was born to be loved, and this is not a theory, but her actually feeling this as an instinct. Finding joy on and accepting the fact that she is an image, she is set on conducting herself just as it is expected of her.[2][1] Such mentality is already close to some sort of goddess.[2]

Marie never hates the people. As she was born to be loved, she therefore loves the people. If the people deem her to be unnecessary, and even if they shout at her, capture her, and kill her, she will smile at them even at the moment of her death. However, her mentality as a Servant have fundamentally stopped at "the moment she married Louis XVI, visited France as its queen, and was loved and blessed by the many citizens", and she does not easily display her aspect as the queen of a tragedy. (It cannot be concluded that she has no memories after the aforementioned moment, but the stage of her character and mentality is simply at "that time".)[1]

Honest. Spontaneous. Marie will speak whatever she thought of. She will say the things she likes are what she likes, and the things she dislikes are what she dislikes.[1]

Marie loves baths.[2] Similar to and influenced by her mother, Maria Theresa, she awfully loves being clean.[2][1] That's because, the perfumes she uses aren't that strong (for her, the light ones that are similar to herbs and flowers are good).[1]

Marie is a spendthrift. She wastes money on one thing or another as she pleases, and she does not understand even herself about this habit.[1]

As the bond with the protagonist (Master) deepens, it appears that she will display the aspect of her tragic side. It is very evident that she is "the very idol that continues to scatter love, yet whose body and mind are scarred." And yet, she still smiles beautifully. Never, will Marie desire for the erasure of the tragedy.[1]

RelationshipsEdit

Amadeus

Around the time when she was seven years old, on the occasion of a six-year-old genius, who was invited as a performing musician to the palace of Vienna, falling down, she kindly extended her hand to him. As a matter of fact, this genius boy would be later known as Amadeus Mozart, and he proposed marriage to the beautiful Marie (who at that time had the name Maria). The answer at that time was...[1]

Even now where she became a Heroic Spirit, this event that was enjoyable and sincere to her is said to be recognized as "love". That is, nothing about this "love" has changed whatsoever from when she felt it around that very youthful time.[1]

Charles-Henri Sanson

The executioner who hoisted the guillotine for Marie. During her lifetime, he is the last companion who raised his voice to her during her final moments. Just before her execution, Marie expressed her words of apology regarding her stepping on Sanson's shoes.[1]

Chevalier d'Eon

She completely recognizes d'Eon as "female". Furthermore, she deeply respects her as a person who endeavored in diplomacy and secret missions while she was a woman. Marie had gave a dress to d'Eon before in life. For Marie, she thinks about going out with d'Eon as a fellow friend and not as master and servant.[1]

RoleEdit

Fate/Grand OrderEdit

Orleans: Wicked Dragon Hundred Years' WarEdit

Marie is an ally to the Protagonist and Mash Kyrielight. She is accompanied by Mozart, who shows some affection towards her. Marie also meets Jeanne d'Arc, who she herself admires greatly. Marie and the rest battles against the Servants lead by the evil Jeanne Alter. These Servants notably include Berserk Saber Chevalier d'Eon, a knight who served Marie in life, and Charles-Henri Sanson, who executed Marie in life.

Later, Jeanne and Marie searches for a saint Servant to heal the curse of Siegfried so he can defeat Jeanne Alter's dragons, and that saint is Saint George, who they eventually meet at a town. Saint George though refuses to leave the town he is guarding against Jeanne Alter's attacks, which causes Marie to promise to protect the town in his place, despite knowing that she will likely die. After Jeanne and Saint George hesitantly leave her, Marie faces Sanson and Jeanne Alter, managing to beat Sanson but being defeated by Jeanne Alter.

Marie appears in her swimsuit as a Caster-class Servant due to Scáthach's deed.

Chaldea Heat Odyssey ~Evolving Civilization~Edit

AbilitiesEdit

Marie's Noble Phantasms are Guillotine Breaker and Crystal Palace.

If it's simple Magecraft, Marie's Magic Resistance Skill can nullify it.[1]

Marie - who is a heavenly-sent child of the royalty conferred by God - can freely handle all vehicles and beasts with her Riding Skill, starting from the white horse that symbolizes the French royal family. However, the Dragon Kind cannot be mounted.[1]

Marie's general weapon is her singing voice due to her Alluring Nightingale (魅惑の美声, Miwaku no Bisei?) Skill.[1] A mesmerizing-kind of Skill possessed by those with a beautiful natural voice; it is also a declaration of the exercise of power by the royalty.[2][1] It works as a charm magecraft-like effect towards those of the user's opposite sex, but evasion is possible by means of a Magic Resistance Skill. Even without Magic Resistance, one can abate it to some extent so long he or she maintains a will to resist.[1] For Marie, who has materialized as a symbolic existence, she can guide magical damage towards the opponents of the royalty with just a single singing voice.[2]

Grace of God (神の恩寵, Kami no Onchō?) is a Skill that denotes the beauty of royalty.[2][1] Marie was born to be a beautiful monarch, endowed with the greatest body and good looks.[1]

Princess of Loveliness (麗しの姫君, Uruwashi no Himegimi?) is a Skill representing one's charismatic nature in regards not to leadership, but the ability to charm the people around oneself. For Marie, who possesses an A Rank in this Skill, a knightly individual that protects her is pulled towards her just by existing.[2][1]

SwimsuitEdit

Marie Caster 3

Japanese name: キャスター
Franchise: Fate
Appears in: Fate/Grand Order
Japanese VA: Risa Taneda
Character type: Servant, Heroic Spirit, Human
Gender: Female[4]
Height: 160cm[4]
Weight: 48kg[4]

Having manifested in a swimsuit, Marie is not concerned at all about the high-degree of exposure. Lovely, enjoyably and gorgeously, Marie Antoinette continues to glitter. Rather, due to being too unaware about her own appearance, she may come out as rather bold in the eyes of others. Regardless of being in a palace or on a beach, a queen consort is a queen consort. Still, maybe due to being in somewhat high spirits, comparing from when she manifests as a Rider, the number of smiles she gives out has increased by a very little bit.[4]

While it seems like she employs a beach ball during combat, it's possible that Marie herself is simply playing around with a ball at the beach, without being aware of the battle.[4]

A Skill representing one's charismatic nature in regards not to leadership, but the ability to charm the people around oneself at the sea. By means of a composite effect with the Beach Flower Skill, Marie is revered and protected as a princess of the beach just by existing.[4]

... please, take a good look. Those who protected Marie from the enemy just now were not just a musician, an executioner and a knight of white lilies under disguise that coincidentally passed by...[4]

DevelopmentEdit

Creation and ConceptionEdit

Ginka is the character illustrator for Marie Antoinette.[2][1] Hikaru Sakurai is the scenario writer for her character.[1]

Marie's concept is an "Idol Queen". An idol who flew down to 18th Century France. Or, a glass angel (as an embodiment and symbol of a pure and fleeting thing, and not as a religious motif).[1]
