|“||Is it strange that I use magic? Ah, that's right. You know me as a painter or as an artist. But, think about it? The fact that I use magic isn't really unusual, right?||„|
|~ Leonardo da Vinci|
Caster is a Caster-class Servant summoned by Chaldea to assist in the Grand Orders. Her true name is Leonardo da Vinci, a peerless genius of the 15th and 16th centuries whose impact on the advancement of human civilization cannot be denied, carving his name into society as one of the Pioneers of the Stars. While originally a young man as remembered by history, da Vinci has rebuilt her body to resemble that of the Mona Lisa when summoned as a Servant, the ideal beauty she pursued in life.
Da Vinci was the third Heroic Spirit summoned by Chaldea, when the FATE system was still incomplete. While she was about to fade due to the system's instability, her interest in Chaldea's circumstances lead to her creating a backup puppet body within the present world that she suspended within this era by asserting that it was her Master, allowing her to remain. As a result, Leonardo is a fraud of a Servant with a false contract, and acts as the head of Chaldea's Technology Development Division.

|~ da Vinci using Uomo Universale|
Uomo Universale: The Universal Man: Leonardo da Vinci's legendary intellect and ability given shape. Using an extremely advanced formula, she rapidly analyzes her target in real time, adjusting her Noble Phantasm to best counter it. It can be used as either an attack or a reflection-based counter, but during the events of Fate/Grand Order, as she is channeling much of her resources to administer Chaldea, it can only be used offensively. As a defense, it repels attacks by analyzing them and composing a counter on the spot, and can do so to counter Noble Phantasms. When used as an attack, da Vinci produces a mass of pure magical energy within her gauntlet, and then fires it forwards, tailoring its composition to best affect whoever she is attacking, rendering their defenses, even anti-magical ones, useless and dealing a fixed amount of damage.
Item Construction: A skill which measures one's ability to manufacture magical items. As a world-famous engineer, artist, scientist, and a talented magus, Leonardo has an A-Rank in this skill, allowing her to make potions that could grant limited immortality, among other items.
Territory Creation: A skill which quantifies one's ability to create a territory advantageous to them as a Magus. Leonardo's A-Rank in this skill allows her to create a "Temple", a territory that is superior to the "Workshop" used by most Magi, in which her own capabilities are boosted.
Golden Rule (Body): The possession of a perfect, divine body, which da Vinci granted herself when she redesigned her body as the Mona Lisa prior to her summoning.
Natural Born Genius: A skill that represents those who have a naturally unparalleled intellect, allowing da Vinci to use most skills save for those inherent to the bodies of others or unique to the legends of certain heroes with above average proficiency. As one of history's premier scientists and the original Renaissance Man, Leonardo has an EX-Rank in this skill, which she has used to boost her Class Skills. However, she has not been known to use this very often as a Servant.
Pioneer of the Stars: A unique skill possessed by figures who have become turning points in human history.. Da Vinci's EX-rank reflects her nature as a great polymath who gave stimuli to many fields of human civilization, allowing her to turn "impossible" events into the "possible" events with the resources she has at her disposal.
