Saber is one of the main heroines of Fate Series and the Servant of Shirou Emiya in the Fifth Holy Grail War(Fate Stay Night). She is also the Servant of Kiritsugu Emiya during the Fourth Holy Grail War(Fate/Zero). Saber is an agile and powerful warrior,She’s loyal, independent, and reserved. She appears cold, but is actually suppressing her emotions to focus on her goals.
Her class is considered the “Most Outstanding”, with excellent ratings in all categories. Saber’s true identity is Altria Pendragon, better known as Arthur Pendragon and King Arthur, who is regarded as a male in history. She is the “Once and Future King” and a legendary hero of England. She wielded the sword from the stone, Caliburn, but it was eventually destroyed. She later obtained Excalibur and Avalon from the Lady of the Lake. Saber is a strong-willed young woman who always speaks resolutely.
She is courageous, determined, and set on winning the Holy Grail. Throughout the story, Saber insists that she is a warrior first and that her gender is of little importance to her. Her stubborn personality is evident when she frequently explains her purpose to her Master, despite his objections: achieving the Holy Grail through any means.
She is an exceptionally powerful fighter and is often downright merciless towards her opponents. Interestingly enough, she appears to become very uncomfortable whenever she is treated as a girl, likely because of her background as a knight. The Saber class is considered the “Most Outstanding” due to its excellent ratings in all categories, and Saber doesn’t fall short of that reputation.
She is left very underpowered for the majority of the Fifth Holy Grail War due to Shirou’s extremely bad aptitude and being unable to provide her with prana due to his Magical Paths being obstructed. Unlike other Heroic Spirits who can fit under multiple classes, she claims that she is only suited to the Saber class. She has the capacity to qualify for the Caster class, but “magecraft is not the way of the King” and she lacks the patience to actually learn magecraft. If she were to be summoned in western Europe, she would receive a general boost in power similar to other European Heroic Spirits, and she would display a much sharper increase in power in England.
She is extremely skilled with a sword. Even unarmed and faced with a surprise attack from Taiga, said to be an unmatched kendo expert, Saber is able to easily disarm her without even taking a stance. She takes up teaching Shirou, but only focuses on giving him as much battle experience as possible because she does not have an aptitude for teaching others.
While her ability as a swordsman is proficient, it is not where her true strength lies, but rather her enormous amount of magical energy. Her initial Noble Phantasm is always Invisible Air, allowing her to hide her identity and main weapon, Excalibur, while also confusing opponents with an invisible sword. She can also release it in a large blast of air and cover other objects with it. She eventually releases Excalibur when necessary, allowing her to unleash a large slash of light capable of wiping out almost anything it its path.
She lost Avalon in life, but the genuine article still exists in the present. While it is kept from her during the Fourth Holy Grail War, it is returned during the Fate route of the Fifth War, giving her more energy and allowing her defend against any attack. She also lost Caliburn in the past, and while she can no longer use it, she is able to make use of Shirou’s projection to slay Berseker. Saber utilizes armor woven by her prana and it can be called part of her body, so it can be called forth for battle and dismissed for normal interactions. It is heavy, hard silver-white and azure armor including gauntlets, greaves, a breastplate, and long tassets shaped like a skirt that act as impregnable defenses made from magical energy overpowering others.
She has to will is away manually and it doesn’t fade when she is unconscious, so Rin is able to remove it from her like it is normal armor. While she normally wears a casual outfit, removing her armor during battle leaves her with a blue dress that she wears under it. Saber is the King of Knights and a Badass as sharp as they come!!!
