|“||If there is an order, I'll come immediately! Your dependable Fox Shrine Maiden, Tamamo, has descended~♡!||„|
|~ Caster upon being summoned|
Caster (キャスター, Kyasutā) is the Caster-class Servant of Hakuno Kishinami during the Moon Cell Holy Grail War. Her true name is Tamamo-no-Mae (玉藻の前), a beautiful woman who acted as the courtesan of Emperor Toba. She is infamous as a kitsune, one of Japan's Three Great Monsters, and a schemer who brought down several great regimes. However, she is truthfully the bunrei, or separated spirit, of Amaterasu, the Goddess of the Sun, who just happens to look like a kitsune.
She reincarnated herself as a human with a single tail, and lived as a human for some time. She became a lady of the court and served Emperor Toba, but she was eventually exposed as a fox by an Onmyouji, and forced to flee. She was pursued by an army, and though she didn't wish to fight, she ultimately had no choice, and slaughtered the army on her own. However, she was ultimately slain by a enchanted arrow, one of many in a hail of arrows.
As Amaterasu, she is the deification of the sun, a Divine Spirit so powerful that the time axis has no bearing on her. Despite her great influence, fame, and legends, she is something far more fiendish than an ordinary Divine Spirit. She referred to herself as one of the Evils of Man, and unlike other Divine Spirits, she is not a being of the Earth, but of the universe itself.

Standard Equipment: Her mirrors, various ofuda and other talismans that she focuses her magic through
Intelligence: As a facet of Amaterasu, Caster is extremely experienced all forms of Japanese mysteries and magecraft, wielding a variety of magical talismans in combat to attack foes with the power of the elements. She needs to predict her foes' actions to maximize the effectiveness of her Witchcraft abilities, showing a sharp mind hidden beneath her ditzy and frivolous exterior. In addition to her prowess in magic, Caster is remarkably skilled in close combat despite being the physically weakest class, using her mirror as a weapon against foes as renowned as Gawain, a Servant on par with King Arthur, and Li Shuwen, an Assassin who is so skilled that he can defeat a Saber-class opponent with his bare fists. Caster has also shown a great knowledge of modern Japanese pop culture, referring to her master as "goshujin-sama" as a worker in a maid cafe would on top of breaking the fourth wall from time to time: "Oh, maybe after I get 500,000 experience points, I'll actually grow it [her tail] back."
Weaknesses: Due to past traumas and her goal of becoming a good wife, she doesn't utilize her shapeshifting or witchcraft skills. She is also somewhat vain and playful. Her status as a Servant restricts access to her divine powers. As Amaterasu, she requires followers and worship to maintain her power.
Notable Attacks / Techniques:
Authority: As a God, Amaterasu has Authority over the world, allowing for "world construction", through means such as event shifting, time manipulation, causality manipulation, creating the concepts needed for kingdom building, and so on. It is a power distinct from Codecasts, Noble Phantasms, and Skills in that while they achieve results based on some logical process or principle, Authority realizes a result simply because the user has the right to do so. Authorities were more widespread during the Age of Gods, but as time has went on, they have become unnecessary. When summoned as a Servant, Tamamo cannot utilize her Authority.
God who resides in Izumo.
|~ Tamamo using Eightfold Blessings of Amaterasu|
Eightfold Blessings of Amaterasu on the Weight Stone under the Sunlit Watery Heavens: The mirror that Tamamo wears on her body, the released form of the Weight Stone of Tamamo, a sacred regalia among sacred regalia. In the future, it would possibly go on to become the Yata no Kagami. It levitates around Tamamo and she uses it in close combat, hitting her opponents with it along with her physical blows. Once she releases its true name to use it as a Noble Phantasm, she summons a circle of levitating ofuda and a number of glowing torii. Drawing in energy, it allows her to cast her spells as if they had no cost for a limited amount of time, effectively giving her limitless magical energy.
In its true form as a divine treasure, it can be used to bring the dead back to life by deploying boundaries and isolating the principles of the world of the death. However, as a Servant, Tamamo doesn't have the authority to use this ability. In its most powerful state, when used by the nine-tailed fox Tamamo-no-Mae, it is an EX-rank, Anti-World Noble Phantasm that could be applied to an entire country. In the first place, it was a god's Noble Phantasm, used for nation building and to reconstruct entire dominions, and it can even convert the power of creation into a magical attack.
Territory Creation: A skill which quantifies one's ability to create a territory advantageous to them as a Magus. As her personality is not suited for such things, she has a mere C-rank and struggles to create even a Workshop.
Divinity: The measure of one's Divine blood, reflected in high ranks by the user becoming part Divine Spirit, though it decreases if the user dislikes the gods. It allows Tamamo to reduce "purge defense" in proportion to the rank of her Divinity, allowing her to break through defensive abilities such as Achilles' Andreas Amarantos. As a division of a Divine Spirit, Tamamo has A-rank Divinity, even after sealing it over and over.
Shapeshifting: A skill allowing for the borrowing of bodies and the changing of one's appearance. A method used by the millenary spirits of foxes and badgers of China that are put on par with Tamamo-no-Mae. Towards the end of her life, Caster was confronted by a force of eighty-thousand men after being chased for days on end. When her attempts to apologize for her actions failed, she finally grew tired of her situation and transformed into a monstrous beast, slaughtering the entire cohort, becoming one of Japan's Three Great Monsters along with Emperor Sutoku and Shuten-Douji. It is said that in this form she is able to beat a hundred Heroic Spirits on her own and holds the world record for murder, but due to her aspirations of being a good wife she will not use this ability willingly.
Witchcraft: Tamamo's own body, and the manipulation and use of it, as opposed to common magecraft, which is used to recompose one's surroundings. It is linked to Dakini heavenly methods and includes techniques to figure out one's time of death, secret arts to gain influence, methods to attain fortunes, and methods to gain the favor of others. However, due to her trauma in life, Tamamo does not make use of her immense skill in these areas.
- Charm: Gyokutenhou: Tamamo performs a rapid series of mana-charged kicks, with the final blow being powerful enough to cause a massive explosion as Tamamo poses. She aims to castrate her opponents with this attack, aiming her kicks at their nether regions.
- Curse: Chaos Heaven: Tamamo throws a talisman that blows her foes away with powerful winds, shattering guards and stunning foes who attempt to block the attack rather than dodge it.
- Curse: Fiery Heaven: Tamamo throws a talisman that sets the area it hits ablaze, dealing fire-elemental damage and stunning foes who attempt to attack her defenses.
- Curse: Frigid Heaven: Tamamo throws a talisman that proceeds to freeze the area it hits, dealing ice-elemental damage and stunning foes who attempt to rush at her.
- Charm: Spirit Theft: Tamamo steals her opponent's magical energy, restoring her reserves while limiting her opponent's ability to cast magic.
- Curse: Void Cleft: Tamamo throws a talisman that damages her foe with void energy.
- Distant Land of the Torn Blossom: Tamamo throws the Killing Stone that she turned into upon her death at her opponent, causing magical damage while afflicting them with a debilitating poison, but she can only use it when she's badly injured.
- Mantra: Aphotic Cave: Tamamo erects a temporary barrier that reduces the damage she takes to a tenth of its original value, absorbing the mana from her opponent's attack to replenish her own.
- Mantra: Bestial Sky: Tamamo pours additional magical energy into her next talisman, greatly increasing its potency.
- Mantra: Merciful Sky: Tamamo pours even more magical energy into her next talisman, drastically increasing its potency.
