True Archer (真アーチャー, Shin Āchā?) is the "True" Archer-class Servant of Bazdilot Cordelion in the True and False Holy Grail Wars of Fate/strange fake. He has also been granted attributes of an Avenger-class Servant through the machinations of his Master.



True Archer's True Name is Alcides (アルケイデス, Arukeidesu?), the human side of Heracles whose divinity has been lost through interference from his Master's Command Spells awakening past memories from his life and mud from the Fuyuki Grail.


After having undergone his transformation from being exposed to the mud of the Fuyuki Grail, Alcides' flesh has been dyed red and he has shrunk from his standard size. Over his chest near his heart, his skin has been dyed white, much like a scar from ripping out his own heart, and donning a black and gold shroud to cover his face.


Normally of noble bearing, his personality has changed due to his exposure to the dark red mud from the Fuyuki Grail. Being forced to remember all the faces of those "humans" who he had passed or known in life, and recalling the terrible sins of his past, he has taken to wearing a shroud over his face as punishment, saying he will never again look upon the works of man. He has agreed to use his Master to obtain the Holy Grail, but declares that the minute he ceases to be of use, he will kill him. His wish for the Grail is the erasure of his posthumous name, taking the name "Alcides" in place of it.

Alcides boasts great hatred for the Gods, to the extent Gilgamesh believes he wishes to kill them. He cites his reason for not taking the power of his War Belt, is due to this hatred, calling it a power that should be made to submit, be trampled upon, and ruled over by the power of Man.


Fate/strange fakeEdit


True Archer is a strong hero with parameters higher than Archer and strong enough to be denoted as quite strong by Lancer's Presence Detection. He can accurately shoot arrows from his bow at a target over twenty kilometers away, their speed surpassing the speed of sound and releasing powerful enough shock-waves to shatter any glass in the nearby area. Even when Archer uses the gauntlet of his Golden Armor to defend himself from an arrow, it still cracks the gauntlet and causes chips of it to fall away. His bow is strong enough to knock away weapons from the Gate of Babylon, and he can somehow survive an all out attack from all directions without receiving a single scratch by using his Nemean Lion Pelt Noble Phantasm. He states that Archer requires Ea to make them equal in a clash, producing a mysterious cloth Noble Phantasm. He also possesses Reincarnation Pandora.

His Battle Continuation can allow him to continue fighting even with wounds that place him on the verge of death. An ability representing his strong will to stay alive on the battlefield.[1]

Bravery is a skill that brushes aside mental interference and increases melee damage. The divine curse lodged inside him has be brought out by the Command Spell. The score has decreased considerably.[1]

Forced Distortion of the class he was originally called forth in. He has received the other class's specialty as proof. Conversely, either of the class skills has declined. In his case, Independent Action has dropped to C rank.[1]

Eye of the Mind (True) is an insight fostered through training and discipline. In his case, having his god given abilities thrown away, the techniques he accumulated as a human make their appearance.[1]
