His identity is Buddha (覚者, ?), a messiah who led the path of enlightenment and Buddhahood. Shakyamuni (釈尊, ?) is the most famous Buddha who became Buddha through self realization. He was released from all suffering and pain while alive. In Buddhism, the "teachings to become an enlightened one" but he never said anything can be "saved once you learn it. Buddhism is a philosophy that came to Shakyamuni when he has reached Buddhahood, and Shakyamuni did not mention "This is the only teaching to the way of Buddha." This is how each person was able to become a Buddha. In Buddhism, people has the potential to become all Buddha. Eventually all humans will lead to enlightenment. Even good, evil, sentience or heartless are all too much in the process.
He is a Bodhisattva, a Deva (天, kami?, a class of Buddhist divinity, as distinct from the word 神, which is pronounced in the same manner, but indicates a god in the general sense) of cosmic proportions, easily capable of governing the Solar System.
After Twice lost his original servant Caster, he prayed for salvation and he was given a new Servant. For Twice to obtain this Servant is their shared philosophy on how good and evil can be opening one's eyes to the truth of "Humanity salvation". Saver responded to be summon as the Servant, it was sinful to ignore his master anguish as it was too hard to be abandoned. Twice was a person who continued to confront war until his death from its birth. While he hated wars but even he cannot completely deny it, the last moments of a man who continued walking penance, like the flower of Shorea robusta (沙羅雙樹, ?).
"There is no salvation in any way to this soul. If at the very least, until the conclusion of the human race that he wished, let's continue together."
In the decisive king of battle between Hakuno Kishinami and Twice, Twice summons Saver. He is the last Servant, who has the form of a god. Twice refers him as Heroic Spirit of Salvation (救世の英霊, Kyusei no Eirei?, localized as "Legendary Soul of Salvation"). His Master states that he is an entity that lives to liberate humanity from its suffering. As he was summoned, he claims that for the sake of leading humanity to follow the path of Tathatā and thus to enlightenment. He'll grant salvation and guide them with the might of his Vajra (刄, ?).
All Hakuno's Servants have different response to Saver summoning. Saber acknowledges that Saver is a Heroic Spirit too much for her alone to handle as she only knows suffering. Archer wasn't expecting Twice to have an exalted messiah type Servant. Caster thinks it's cliché for Twice to be saved by a god. But nevertheless, they are all confident to take down Saver and Twice with Hakuno support.
After Twice vanishes, Hakuno Kishinami expected Saver to fade away like Twice. Rather than Saver lend his power to his master, he only showed mercy during in the King of the battle. Saver before vanishing, explains that all life will eventually perish and that all living things are trapped in Saṃsāra (輪廻, lit. endless cycle of rebirth?). He further says that Twice's salvation is in Nirvana where he will witness the end of the world. Hakuno saw Saver's last expression much like his Master and as he fade away, Hakuno compares him to be like a Shorea robusta flower losing its petal. Hakuno deduces Saver as the messiah Buddha who was the only person to have escaped the cycle of suffering and that Saver allied himself with that Master not because he agreed with Twice's ideals, but out of compassion for his soul.
As with other hypothetical Servants of the Saver class, Saver possesses the class abilities of Charisma; a rare natural talent for commanding armies and it’s said that B rank is enough for even a king. Counter Hero, which imposes a rank-down upon any opponents that classify as 'Heroes' or 'Anti-heroes.'
Enlightenment of the Sacred Fig (菩提樹の悟り, Bodaijuu no Satori?, localized as Sri Maha Bodhiya), which negates damage and mental interference. However those with Divinity (神性, Shinsei?) skill can break through and defend against this skill. Saver who has attained the EX rank, it should be possible to tranquilly receive even the seven desires of man.
- Samadhi (三昧, ?) - Refers to the state of perfect meditative union. Enhances Saver's attributes, causes Saver's GUARD command to drain MP from the attacker.
- Dukkha Samudaya (集諦, ?) - The noble truth of suffering's accumulation. Counterattack, deals high damage.
- Madhyamā-pratipad (中道, ?) - The middle way, moderation in favor of indulgence or mortification. Attribute enhancement, causes Saver's ATTACK command to recover HP.
- Dukkha (苦諦, ?) - The noble truth that life is full of suffering. Attribute enhancement, causes Saver's BREAK command to stun.
- Śūnyatā (空虚, ?) - Emptiness, the concept that all things are without absolute identity or permanence. Damage, reduced by having a higher prana (魔力, ?) stat.
Despite his appearance, Saver is skilled in close hand to hand combat. He uses Kalaripayattu (カラリパヤット, Kararipayatto?), the ancient Indian fighting style from which all rationally derived martial arts are descended.

Saver [Servant name]
Buddha. A messiah type servant.

All the World's Desire [Noble Phantasm]
The anti-planetary Noble Phantasm of reborn Kiara.
The most heinous of Noble Phantasms, which uses the Earth for masturbation.
It's an Authority which lets her gain the greatest of sensations and grow by offering her body to and embracing all life left on Earth - humans, animals, plants.
The nature of this is similar to a certain man-made demon who had once been made into the object of demonization to prove the evil of humanity and turned into a sacrifice.
This vortex of pleasure melts all things with sapience, subliming their lives in a brief instant. It's the birth of an ephemeral but eternal Land of Bliss. This vortex of pleasure works on any sapient being without exception, no matter how different the structure of their intelligence is.
This is not a Noble Phantasm limited to the Earth.
It has a special effect of doing more damage in certain conditions, the damage increasing if it's used on the opposite sex, and the higher the intelligence the greater the damage.
The plan on paper would have been for Archer to take the least damage, while Gilgamesh would receive the greatest damage.
As for why its performance, presentation, and sheer scale are so huge, it’s because Kiara is a being close to Saver.
People who devote themselves to bring salvation to sattvas (all living things) are generally called Boddhisattvas, and those who have attained moksha are also Boddhisattvas. And a Boddhisattva is a god of cosmic proportions, and easily governs at least the solar system.
The vastness of the world view of Buddhism is on a different level from that of other religions.
Why there are numerical concepts like Nayuta (10^60) and Muryoutaisuu (10^68) is because they were made to demonstrate the magnitude of the Buddha.
In Buddhism, the universe is the kingdom of the Buddha, and its size is described as the great trichiliocosm.
The galaxy is made up of 3,000 worlds (small trichiliocosm), and a thousand galaxies is a medium trichiliocosm, and a thousand of these makes up the great trichiliocosm.
This truly can be said to be on the scale of galaxies, galaxy clusters, superclusters.
Damn India, you guys came up with this interpretation more than 2000 years ago?
Back in the initial development phase, I handed in the text description and told them I wanted the last boss to do this with the expectation it’d get rejected because of CERO standards but it got passed without a hitch. It’s still a mystery as to how this was able to make it through the censors.

Kewords English | Japanese
01 - Gae Bolg: Spear of Barbaric Impalement
A crimson spear that always finds its mark.
The truth of this weapon is far more sinister than legends says. In a strange reversal of causality, the target and ultimate effect of this weapon have already ordained. The only variable presence in a successful attack is whether it is used or not. Once used, it is not a question of if it will hit, but how long it will take for its target to die. Agility will not help one avoid Gae Bolg should it used, but instead it all depends on one's luck.
Gae Bolg is the most efficient and deadly of all the Noble Phantasms, as it has a very low magic cost and almost always results in a one-hit kill.
02 - Wielder of Runes
A form of thaumaturgy unique to Northern Europe.
The foundation of this craft is the engraving of words of power into stone to induce various mystical events. It is believed that this ability has been lost to time.
03 - Child of Light
A hero believed to be the offspring of a god and a human. Demigods are fairly common amongst the Legendary Souls drawn from human mythology, although few of them are considered more than second-tier heroes by their adherents. This one, however, is believed to have inherited the blood of the Absolute One, the main god of his nation's pantheon of immortal beings.
Skills English | Japanese
Nullifies minor spells consisting of chants of two verses or less. Ineffective against high-level thaumaturgy and the greater rituals.
Increases vitality when in deadly peril. Makes it possible to fight even with fatal injuries and remain alive as long as a final decisive blow isn't struck. The ability rank of this skill has been temporarily reduced as his Master chose to boost his overall endurance at the expense of this ability.
This is a measure of one's Divine Spirit aptitude. At high levels, this ability allows one to break through and defend against otherwise invincible skills, such as Sri Maha Bodhiya.
Details English | Japanese
01 - Character Background
One of the great heroes of Ireland.
First appears as demigod in Ulster mythology and is said to be the sun of Lugh, the God of light, and Deichtine, the younger sister of Conchobar, King of Ulster. His birth name was Setanta and from an early age it was foretold that he would become a hero of renown.
He was christened Cu Chulainn (which means Culann's Hound) after accidently killing the watchdog of a wealthy merchant. He took the name with pride, vowing, "I will devote myself to the rearing of a watchdog worthy of replacing the one I have just slain and until such time as that dog is ready, I will personally watch over and guard your life with my own."
Upon becoming an adult, Cu Chulainn was enrolled into the order known as the Knight of the Red Branch and then sent to the warrior-woman Scathach in the Land of Shadows to train as a warrior, and, according to darker rumors, meet his death.
Fortunately, Scathach saw in him a worthy student and disciple and passed on all that she knew of both martial arts and the more powerful aspects of thaumaturgy. Upon the completion of his training, Cu Chulainn was given the mighty demonic spear Gae Bolg and told to depart from the Land of Shadows.
After returning to be beloved homeland, his triumphs were many...but that is a story for another time.
02 - "Knights of the Red Bough"
All of the stories that surround the legend of Cu Chulainn are universal in their praise for his loyalty, heroism and compassion. And although he was famous for his terrifying "battle spasms" while on the battle field, his seemingly blind rage never overcame his steadfast adherence to his moral code.
Unfortunately, it was this unwavering adherence to honor that in the end lead to Cu Chulainn's demise. As a Celtric warrior, he was bound by a number of geasa (taboos), the violation of which would greatly weaken him. As a youth, he single-handedly defended Ulster from the armies of Queen Medb of Connacht. To add to insult of a single man annihilating her army, Cu Chulainn came across her on the field of battle, but chose to spare her life as he thought it dishonorable to kill a woman. From that moment on, the desire to see him die became an all-consuming passion for the disgraced queen.
Medb eventually came up with a scheme to weaken Cu Chulainn by using his own code of honor against him. By forcing him to violate several of the geasa that bound him, Cu Chulainn was stripped of the divine protections and gifts that were his birthright. However, he still managed to die with honor, tying himself to a stone pillar even as his life faded, as he vowed to never fall in battle.
