|“||I am Martha, just Martha. Let us surely save the world.||„|
|~ Martha to her Master upon being summoned|
Rider is a Rider-class Servant able to be summoned by Ritsuka Fujimaru in the Grand Orders, first appearing as one of the Servants summoned by Gilles de Rais in a berserk state during the Orleans singularity. Her true name is Martha, best known as the saint who tamed the monstrous dragon Tarasque. First appearing as a figure in the Bible, she witnessed the Messiah's resurrection of her brother, Lazarus, and became a woman of unshakable faith, though she never quite got over her town girl origins, retaining something of a short temper.

|“||O, Dragon That Knew Naught of Love... Like stars! Tarasque!||„|
|~ Martha using her Noble Phantasm|
Tarasque: O' Tragic Drake Who Knew Naught of Love: Martha's primary Noble Phantasm, which allows her to summon the monstrous dragon Tarasque, who she tamed after it fell in love with her for her perfect, holy radiance. The Tarasque is an immense, tyrannical dragon capable of annihilating an enemy and their camp in a single attack. It can move in both the water and on the ground with equal ease, has a tail covered in venomous spikes, and can breathe gouts of blazing fire.
Tarasque: O’ Dragon’s Shield that Shall Not Let a Blade Pass: A protective Noble Phantasm, in which Martha summons the shell of the dragon Tarasque to temporarily protect herself and her allies from attack, drastically increasing her target's defensive power and nullifying most physical damage before it fades.
Magic Resistance: An innate ability that grants protection against magical effects. Unlike the Resistance effect, which merely rejects Magical Energy, this ability cancels the spells altogether. At this rank of A, Martha is immune to all but the strongest, oldest spells of the Age of Gods, rendering her nearly completely untouchable to modern magi.
Riding: The ability to ride mounts. With a stellar, unparalleled rank of A++, Martha can ride all beasts and vehicles with complete, masterful control, bringing their capabilities up to a supernatural scale. While the Riding skill would not normally allow a Servant to ride members of the Dragon Kind, Martha is a special case and can ride even dragons masterfully.
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 Martha to reduce "purge defense" in proportion to the rank of her Divinity, allowing her to break through defensive abilities such as Achilles' Andreas Amarantos. Martha gained her C-rank from her tales of journeying with the great Messiah and taming the dragon Tarasque, becoming worshiped and revered as a saint.
Miracle: The ability to occasionally realize a miracle that makes the impossible possible, similarly to but different from the skill born by legendary pioneers, Pioneer of the Stars.
Protection of the Faith: A form of divine protection which gives "absoluteness of one's body and soul" to those who have sacrificed themselves in the name of their faith. While it is a form of divine protection, it is not a blessing given by a higher existence, but a defense granted by the user's unshakable devotion to their beliefs.
Saint of the Waterside: As a saint, Martha is heavily associated with the water due to her legend of riding across the water on a boat and reining in the Tarasque on a riverbank. When she is within view of a waterside, Martha becomes more powerful.
