Notable Attacks/Techniques:

Noble Phantasm



-Tarasque: O Tragic Drake Who Knew Naught of Love (タラスク: 愛知らぬ哀しき竜よ, Tarasuku: Ai Shiranu Kanashiki Ryū yo): is the Noble Phantasm of Saint Martha. It focus on summoning Terasque, spinning towards the enemy at high speeds before exploding on contact. The spikes jutting from its back help it shred anything in it's path.

-Tarasque: Shield of the Drake (タラスク: 刃を通さぬ竜の盾よ, Tarasuku: Ha o tōsanu ryū no tate yo): is the Noble Phantasm of Saint Martha. Temporarily summons the monstrous Tarasque's shell protecting Martha and her allies. An ally's (singular) defensive power is drastically increased, otherwise physical damage is nullified for a short duration.

Class Skills

-Magic Resistance (対魔力, Tai-Maryoku, localized as "Anti-Magic"): grants protection against magical effects. Differently from the Resistance effect that merely rejects Magical Energy, this ability cancels the spells altogether. For Martha's case, cancel spells of A-Rank or below. In practice, the Servant is untouchable to modern magi, so it would not be an exaggeration to title the Servant a "Magus Killer".

-Riding (騎乗, Kijō, localized as "Dragoon"): the Class Skill of Rider and Saber, is the ability to ride mounts. Rider-class Servants will typically possess a high rank, and A-rank can allow for Phantasmal Beasts and Divine Beasts to be mounted. It is said that dragon type mounts are an exception, requiring a different ability other than Riding. Due to Martha's rank (A++) she is even capable of riding beasts such as dragons.

Personal Skills

-Divinity (神性, Shinsei): is the measure of whether one has Divine Spirit aptitude or not. At high levels one is treated as a mixed race of a Divine Spirit, and the level declines when the Heroic Spirit's own rank as aMonsterDemonic Beast raises. It can also decrease due one's dislike for the gods. It also has an effect which reduces special defensive values called "purge defense" in proportion to the Divinity's Rank.

-Protection of the Faith (信仰の加護, Shinkō no Kago, localized as "Aegis of the Divine"): is a Skill possessed only by those who have sacrificed themselves for a religious view. Despite being a form of divine protection, it is not a blessing from a higher existence. It is only the absoluteness of one's body and soul, which is born from faith.

-Miracle (奇蹟, Kiseki): It's the skill that makes the impossible possible. Although it has some similarities with the skill Pioneer of the Stars, it is something essentially different. There are also differences regarding the things that it can be applied.

-Saint of the Waterside (水辺の聖女, Mizube no Seijo): is a skill representing Saint Martha's deep connections to water for having to drift on top of a boat and reined in the Tarasque at the Rhone's riverbank. Upon perceiving a waterside, Martha's attack power raises.
