Assassin of "Red" ("赤"のアサシン, "Aka" no Asashin?) is the Assassin-class Servant of Shirou Kotomine as part of the Red Faction in the Great Holy Grail War of Fate/Apocrypha. She was designed by TYPE-MOON and illustrated by Shidzuki Morii for the original canceled online game project.
Assassin's identity is Semiramis, Wise Queen of Assyria (アッシリアの賢女王 セミラミス, Asshiria no Kenjoō Samiramisu?). Born from the Syrian mermaid goddess Atargatis and a human man, and left on the waterfront by her loveless mother. She was wrapped in the warm wings of a dove, and fed with the dove's milk. Semiramis was then found and educated by the shepherd Simmas until she married Onnes, an old general; but she was then taken away by the Syrian king Ninus who fell in love with her thanks to her beautiful face. This forced Onnes to commit suicide, and after Semiramis earned the favors of the king with original battle plans, she married him and formally became queen. A few days after the marriage, she killed the king with poison, and reigned as a regent over Assyria for the next few decades. This is the oldest case of murder by poisoning in legends.
Assassin is a peerless beauty that lets loose a degenerate atmosphere in some respects. She works out strategies alongside Shirou to fulfill her ambition. She is a very enthusiastic person who indulges in luxury and decadence. Since her childhood, she has studied a wide range of disciplines such as cosmetics, hairdressing, dancing, clothing, music and astronomy, and her beautiful face has captivated many men. Her passion has led her to start a war to possess a single man, and to poison her husband, the king, for politics, but her abilities as a queen are indisputable. Proof of the many expeditions she has led can be seen on walls and the Ishtar Gate.
Her Noble Phantasm Hanging Gardens of Babylon: Aerial Garden of Vanity ( 虚栄の空中庭園, Hangingu Gādenzu obu Babiron: Kyoei no Kūchū Teien?) is a giant floating fortress which the Red Faction use for their main base.
