Backstory

Caster is an Caster-class Servant in the FC/OC Discord Holy Grail War. Her true name is Carol Machiel - or at least this is the true name she has chosen for herself in the modern era. She is the daughter of a Divine Spirit of the stars worshiped by a small South American civilisation in the late BCE, and for the first twenty years of her life acted as her mother's mouthpiece to speak to her followers. However, with the turning of the common era and the retreat from the Divine Spirits from the world, she could no longer hear her mother's voice, and the followers left her, despite her attempts to renew their faith.

As a reward for her service, on the 25th birthday she was gifted with a divine core of her own, granting her unaging body, and given freedom to explore the world instead of being all but imprisoned within the high temple.

As a result, she has never truly entered the Throne of Heroes, but is instead a Living Servant, a person who achieved the power of a Servant in their own lifetime, and simply travels the world, enjoying life.

Eventually, her travels would lead her to Fuyuki in 2004.

Attack Potency: Mountain level (Has C rank Strength. Has A++ rank Magical Power, which she uses as her primary method of attack and can use to boost her Strength), Island Level with The Greatest Superstar (an A+++ Noble Phantasm that creates an artificial star, which would make it potentially even stronger than Excalibur, as well as empowering her abilities to this level for a short period of time)

Weaknesses: The activation period of The Greatest Superstar takes a moment to complete and leaves Caster unable to defend herself for its duration. Her Star Signs can be disrupted if the sign itself is damaged or destroyed. The Star Signs created by her Field of Stars ability can affect her if she is within their area of effect.

Notable Attacks/Techniques:

Noble Phantasms

The Greatest Superstar: Caster utilises her control over light to twist all the light in the area into a space a dozen or so metres directly above her, manifesting a false star there in an explosion of light and fire that forcibly triggers her ability to grow stronger under the light of the stars. Additionally, the explosion heals and cures allies of debilitating effects on their bodies, while burning and setting alight her enemies.

Class Skills

Item Creation: A Caster class Skill. It is the Skill to manufacture magical items, from implements of war to items for daily use, though it requires time to gather components and manufacture items. Caster never made many magical items, so her rank in this skill is low.

Territory Creation: A Caster class skill. Represents one’s capacity to claim a base of operations for their own, at which to redouble strength. Carol’s high rank in this skill comes from her ability to completely cover and define a space in invisible magic Star Signs, allowing her to catch her opponents in traps and attack them with the items within, as well as her ability to define a “Theatre” for herself where she can sing for her audience.

Personal Skills

Idol of Starlight: Carol was the child of Kabaiel, a lesser known Divine Spirit of the stars to a small South American civilisation, and the mouthpiece for Kabaiel’s followers centuries ago. As the mouthpiece for the goddess, her only duty was to speak and be loved. And now that she has arrived in the modern day, what occupation could she be more qualified for than a superstar idol? Those around her, regardless of gender, experience strong feelings of love towards Carol on seeing her, enough to momentarily shake the mind and body, as well as the undeniable feeling that light is shining out from her very being, blurring the vision of those who attempt to look too closely with either their eyes or more esoteric methods.

Goddess Divine Core (False): A Skill that expresses one being a perfected goddess from birth. A composite Skill that comprises the Skill Divinity, preserves the absoluteness of the mind and the body, repels all mental interference, prevents the body from growth and prevents the figure from change no matter how much calories are absorbed (much to Carol’s joy. She’s a big eater). Carol’s “False” variation comes from how this skill was granted to her by her patron goddess and mother during her early mid-20s rather than having been a goddess “from birth”, but the effects are otherwise the same.

Star Signs: Carol possesses a vast knowledge various magical symbols gained through her studies during her time as her mother’s mouthpiece, with which she can achieve a vast range of effects. Although her Signs cannot stand up to the sheer strength of the Primeval Runes of the Witch of Dun Scaith or her pupil, her mastery grants her intricate knowledge of all magical symbols… and their weaknesses.

Carol’s (Gr)Ace: The Grace (blessing) of her mother, a Divine Spirit of the stars, grants Caster a strong resistance to hostile magic. Also Carol is asexual. This skill became a composite of these factors purely for the name’s wordplay.

Magecraft

Star Bright Star Flight: Caster is effortlessly capable of flight.

Star Strike: Caster enhances her physical strikes with her magic, increasing their speed, range and damage.

Shooting Star: Caster converts her body into a beam of light to move at high speed.

Superstar: Caster summons a massive ball of fire and throws it at her opponent, causing a huge explosion.

Starlight Daggers: Caster activates the Star Sign tattooed on her second thumb joint, creating daggers of light held between her fingers that she throws at the enemy in a spray of shining blades.

Starlight Armour: Caster activates the Star Sign tattooed on her navel, covering her body in a sparkling armour of dazzling light to defend her from damage. It also burns off most of her clothes except her jacket sadly, but the sparkles cover everything important so she doesn’t mind too much.

Starlight Shield: Caster activates the Star Signs tattooed on her palms, summoning a shield of magical light around her to block attacks from all directions.

Strength From Stars: Caster activates the Star Signs tattooed on her knuckles, increasing her strength.

Light Speed: Caster activates the Star Sign tattooed on her thighs, increasing her speed and reactions.

Starstruck: Caster activates the Star Sign tattooed on her solar plexus, briefly electrifying her body.

Searing Mind: Caster activates the magic symbol tattooed on her temple, causing her thoughts to become as searingly bright as a star.

Star Burst: Caster activates magic symbols tattooed on her forearms, summoning a wave of magical light to throw at her enemies.

Light Up The Night: Caster creates several orbs of magical light that float through the air around her, illuminating the area.

Falling Star: Caster concentrates light rays into a massive beam of energy that strikes down at the opponent from the heavens.

Spotlight: Caster twists light into a dozen burning spotlights that focus on her enemy.

Field of Stars: Caster inscribes an invisible Star Sign through the space in front of her. When an enemy gets too close to the symbol, it activates, causing a certain effect.

  • Barrier: The Star Sign creates a forcefield some distance around itself, trapping enemies within or preventing them from entering the area. The forcefield itself regenerates instantly from damage, requiring the destruction of the Star Sign to deactivate it.
  • Sealing: The Star Sign restricts the use of magic within its surroundings.
  • Shock: Fires a lightning bolt at those nearby every few seconds, stunning them on contact.
  • Killing: The Star Sign deals constant damage to everyone near to it.
  • Looping: Loops the opponent's magic back on them, dealing damage to them equal to their own magical strength.
  • Binding: The Star Sign restricts the movement of all those nearby, lowering their speed and strength.
  • Displacing: The Star Sign disrupts teleportation from or into the area surrounding it, also causing internal damage to those who attempt it.
  • Strobing: The Star Sign flickers with a pattern and intensity that causes those who view it to have a seizure and fall unconscious.
