|~ Fawkes summoning his Noble Phantasm|
A Joyful Day of Deliverance: A Remembrance of Cruelty, A Vision of Rebellion: An A+ Rank, Anti-King/Anti-Mind Noble Phantasm. A recreation of the infamous Gunpowder Plot that immortalized Guy Fawkes as a universal figure symbolizing rebellion. Rather than physical, its power is one that forcibly affects the mind, making the targets experience an artificial memory of being present in the heart of the destruction of Parliament on Guy Fawkes Night, causing their body to physically explode as a result. As this power is purely mental rather than truly physical it ignores physical defenses, the damage itself having occurred to the targets, in their own perception, in the past, and reflecting that damage onto them in the present. As it is symbolic of the overthrowing of tyrannical rulers and corrupt governments, should the target have the traits of a King the effects will be even stronger against them.
Presence Concealment: (A): The signature class skill of the Assassin class, erasing the Servant’s presence and making it nearly impossible to detect them until they move to attack. Fawkes possesses an A-Rank in this skill, making it nearly impossible for humans or Servants to detect him, but the rank will drop dramatically when he moves to attack.
Spirit of Rebellion: (EX): More than a simple man, Fawkes himself represents an ideal, and all those who he came in contact with, both ally and enemy, inevitably came to hold a deep respect for him. Even centuries after his death he is a universally acknowledged icon of rebellion, from small protests to wide scale uprisings, all who stand against tyranny are in essence Guy Fawkes. As a Skill it empowers those who stand with Fawkes, with an even greater effectiveness towards those of a Lawful alignment.
Military Tactics: (C+): Aside from being one of the masterminds behind the planning and execution of the Gunpowder Plot, Fawkes is noted as being highly versed in military tactics, with over a decade of military experience under his belt in which he spearheaded numerous battles during the Eighty Years War including the Siege of Calais and having attained the rank of Captain in the Spanish military. In battle this Skill increases the strength of all allies' Noble Phantasms for one turn.
Information Erasure: (C): A Skill derived from the general mystery of Fawkes' identity and the details of the Gunpowder Plot as a whole, as despite Fawkes being a native Englishman he was largely unknown, and even a network of spies tracking him ended up only being able to give vague details about him with no knowledge at all about the Plot, as well as a direct warning of the Plot being passed off as a falsehood. Even during his interrogation in the Tower of London the details of Fawkes' life and the plans of the Plot were hazy, with no one knowing for sure what was stated by Fawkes and what was fabricated by the torturer. In direct application, Fawkes, while unable to completely erase information about himself, is able to muddy it, boiling it down to nothing but the most basic details which would in the long run be largely useless to those who possess them.
A Roman Resolution: (A): A Skill representing Fawkes' fortitude in his final days of being tortured at the hands of the British. A composite skill of Unyielding Stance and Battle continuation, Fawkes resisted torture that gradually increased in severity for days before he began to give in, his resistance going so far as to even impress King James to the point that the very room he was tortured in was dubbed 'The Guy Fawkes Room'.
Subversive Activities: (A): The talent to reduce the enemy forces in the preliminary stages before going into battle. An expert of traps. However, the higher the ranking of this Skill, the more one's spiritual status as a hero declines.
