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 Georgios (ゲオルギウス, Georugiusu?), also known as Saint George, the Dragon-slaying Saint (ドラゴン殺しの聖者, Doragon-goroshi no Seija?). Although Georgios is a holy man, his heroic saga is by no means inferior that of your average knight. A saint of the Catholic Church whose main stories are in the Golden Legend, a collection of legends on saints, and in the Seven Champions of Christendom.[1][2]

LegendEdit

In the Golden Legend (黄金伝説抄, Kogane Densetsu?), he was passing through a village that offered a sacrifice to calm a dragon, and defeated the dragon by throwing his spear. Having captured the dragon, he killed it only on the condition that the whole country the village was in adopted Christianity.[1][2]

In the Seven Champions of Christendom (キリスト教圏の七勇士, Kirisuto-kyōken no Nana Yūshi?), he was kidnapped by a witch and raised by her, but he realized she was evil and sealed her in a cave, releasing 6 other saints from the same circumstances. He then went to Egypt and rescued a princess offered as a sacrifice to a dragon, killing the dragon by striking it at a spot uncovered by scales with Ascalon, a sword offered to him by the witch who had raised him.[1][2]

AppearanceEdit

PersonalityEdit

Rider is an upright man who tasks himself to protect the meager, indiscriminate in his kindness. It is his firm belief that anyone is capable of error, and that anyone is capable of learning from their mistakes and returning to path of virtue; those who would oppress others and permit violence to rule their hearts and actions have merely fallen prey to their own weakness. On his watch, however, none shall be permitted to injure others; and if necessary, his sword shall be drawn intervene. A lover of travel, he has recently grown interested in the cameras of the modern era.[2]

In order to save the world, Georgios will gladly devote his soul to his master. He will wage his life for his master without hesitation. However, if you wish to repay this dedication, you should act as a righteous Master.[1]

RoleEdit

Fate/Grand OrderEdit

Orleans: Wicked Dragon Hundred Years' War Edit

Rider is an ally and assist Protagonist and Mash Kyrielight.

AbilitiesEdit

He is a Heroic Spirit that displays his true strength when he is on the defensive. Possessing the holy sword Ascalon, his anecdote of having exterminated a dragon is famous. He rides the horse Bayard that negates enemies attacks only once.[1]

SkillsEdit

Magic Resistance (対魔力, Tai-Maryoku?): A
In the Servant's era of origin -- when Magecraft still retained its ancient strength -- countless wielders of the arcane arts attempted to bring him low with their spells, but he managed to emerge unscathed. For his skill in this ability, it would not be an exaggeration to title the Servant a "Magus Killer.".[2]

Riding (騎乗, Kijō?): B
Though classed as a Rider, and noted in his heroic legend to defeated a dragon on horseback, the Servant is not exceptionally skilled in mounted maneuverability. He receives a class bonus in this ability as a Servant, but in life, his apparent expertise in riding would be rightfully attributed to the skill of his trusted steed, Bayard.[2]

Battle Continuation (戦闘続行, Sentō Zokkō?): A
Beloved by the World, the unyielding force of life within the Servant permits the continuation of combat even in the event of fatal injury. He is further driven by a conscientiousness of the faith and expectations of those he desires to protect. A divine protection from the Earth rooted in the veneration of Georgius as a Patron of Harvest.[2]

Guardian Knight (守護騎士, Shugo Kishi?): A+
The Servant receives a temporary attribute bonus if acting in the defense of others. A protector of numerous nations and expansive regions in life, the Servant is capable of deriving effectively unlimited defensive capabilities from those who place their faith and expectations in him.[1][2]

Soul of a Martyr (殉教者の魂, Junkyōsha no Tamashii?): B+
Nullification of mental interference through firmness of faith. In life, the Servant endured persecution and torture at the hands those who would see him denounce his faith, but never once did he falter in his ministry of Christ.[1][2]

Instinct (直感, Chokkan?): C
Upon engagement, the Servant is capable of optimizing his position by identifying and exploiting favorable developments. However, the skill cannot be activated except for defensive purposes. The Servant typically uses this ability to vaguely divine the intent of an opponent so as to determine whether engagement is an appropriate course of action, or if the opponent is an "enemy that must be fought."[2]

Divinity (神性, Shinsei?): C
As the Servant was revered as a saint in the medieval era, the strength of his nature as a divine spirit is equivalent in rank to the deities of minor cults and the forgotten gods of yore. Incidentally, the name "Georgius" was originally related in sense to the tilling of the earth in ancient farming communities -- rooted in the reverence of the Middle Eastern God of Harvest, Ba'al.[2]

DevelopmentEdit

Creation and ConceptionEdit

Rider was designed by Kiyomune Miwa and illustrated by Higashiguchi Chuuou for the canceled Fate/Apocrypha online game project which was not included in the final version.[2] He was collected along with the other thirteen initial Servant designs in Fate/complete material IV Extra material. The project was revived in novel format afterwards, Yuuichirou Higashide said Georgius was removed from the novel because he would be the third saint in the story. He would have to be included in the ideological conflict between Joan of Arc and Amakusa, but he feared it would become too confusing. Also, considering the final outcome of the story, his value as a character dimmed further since his Noble Phantasm would cause the metamorphosis midway through the story, so he was discarded and replaced by Achilles.[3]

Yuuichirou Higashide are responsible for Georgios' Scenario in Fate/Grand Order.
