Find Out the Myth Behind the Servant of the Red From Fate/Apocrypha!
After knowing the identity of Fate/Zero’s and Fate/Stay Night’s servant, the next step would be Fate/Apocrypha according to the release date. Fate/Apocrypha might be a little bit confusing for anime-only Fate series fans since there are more than 7 servants. There’s a total of 14 servants divided into two teams, with 1 ruler to observe the match. This might be a long list so without further ado, let’s start with the Red servant!
Mordred, The Knight of Treachery.
Mordred is a figure who is variously portrayed in the British tradition. There are many versions of Mordred’s story throughout history. There’s one where Mordred was depicted as Arthur's traitorous nephew while later variants most often characterized him as Arthur's villainous bastard son. Mordred is usually a brother or half-brother to Gawain.
Atalanta, The Huntress of Chastity.
Atalanta is a heroine in Greek mythology. There are two versions of the huntress Atalanta: one from Arcadia, whose parents were Iasus and Clymene who is primarily known from the tales of the Calydonian boar hunt and the Argonauts. While the other from Boeotia, who is the daughter of King Schoeneus and is primarily noted for her skill in the footrace. In both versions, Atalanta was a local figure allied to the goddess Artemis.
Karna, The Hero of Generosity.
Karna, also known as Vasusena, Anga-raja, and Radheya, is one of the major characters of the Hindu epic, Mahābhārata. He is the son of the sun god, Surya and princess Kunti and thus a demigod of royal birth. Karna was secretly born to an unmarried Kunti in her teenage, fearing outrage and backlash from society over her premarital pregnancy, Kunti had no choice but to abandon the newly born Karna adrift in a basket on the Ganges, in the hope that he finds foster parents.
Achilles, The invincible hero of Troy.
Achilles was a hero of the Trojan War, the greatest of all the Greek warriors. Achilles' most notable feat during the Trojan War was the slaying of the Trojan prince Hector outside the gates of Troy. He was killed near the end of the Trojan War by Paris, who shot him in the heel with an arrow. Achilles was invulnerable in all of his body except for one heel, because when his mother Thetis dipped him in the river Styx as an infant, she held him by one of his heels.
Shakespeare, The World's Greatest Playwright.
William Shakespeare was an English playwright, poet, and actor, widely regarded as the greatest writer in the English language and the world's greatest dramatist. He is often called England's national poet and the "Bard of Avon" (or simply "the Bard"). His plays have been translated into every major living language and are performed more often than those of any other playwright. They also continue to be studied and reinterpreted.
Spartacus, The Gladiator.
Spartacus was a Thracian gladiator who, along with Crixus, Gannicus, Castus, and Oenomaus, was one of the escaped slave leaders in the Third Servile War, a major slave uprising against the Roman Republic. He was a former gladiator and an accomplished military leader.
Semiramis, Wise Queen of Assyria.
Semiramis was the mythological Lydian-Babylonian wife of Onnes and Ninus, succeeding the latter to the throne of Assyria. She ruled at a time of political uncertainty, which is one of the possible explanations for why Assyrians may have accepted her rule. It has been speculated that ruling successfully as a woman may have made the Assyrians regard her with particular reference and that the achievements of her reign were retold over the generations until she was turned into a mythical figure.
