|“||I'm still an apprentice of the sword, and becoming a full-fledged knight is a distant dream. I have ability, but I'm still lacking in discipline. Someday, I will obtain the strength of heart to be worthy of this Holy Sword.||„|
|~ Saber Lily's motivations|
Saber Lily is one of the Servants of the Grand Orders. Her true name is Arturia Pendragon, better known as King Arthur, the "Once and Future King" and a legendary hero of Britain. She became king by pulling the sword Caliburn from the stone, and then set out to train to become king as the Knight Princess. She went on many adventures with her stepbrother Sir Kay, and their attendant magus, Merlin, saving many people and causing mischief.
Powers and Stats
Tier: At least 7-B, 7-A with Caliburn, at least High 7-A, likely 6-C with overloaded Caliburn
Name: Saber Lily, Arturia Pendragon
Origin: Fate/Grand Order
Age: 14 years old
Classification: Saber-class Servant
Powers and Abilities: Superhuman Physical Characteristics, Enhanced Senses, Expert Swordswoman, Precognition (Through a sixth sense that borders on precognition, she can analyze an opponent and predict the flow of battle), some Magecraft, Energy Projection, Statistics Amplification (Can reinforce her body with magical energy to increase her strength and durability), can walk on water, Supernatural Luck, Minor Fate Manipulation (Servants with B-rank Luck or higher can change their own fates to evade inevitable outcomes such as having their hearts destroyed by Gáe Bolg), Soul Manipulation (All Servants can consume souls to replenish their magical energy), Intangibility and Invisibility in spirit form, Immunity to Modern Weapons (Servants are Divine Mysteries that cannot be harmed by modern weapons such as guns, knives, or bombs unless they are infused with a supernatural aspect such as magical energy or possess a certain amount of age), Resistance to Magic (Including effects such as Petrification, Spatial Manipulation, and Mind Manipulation), Immortality (Type 1), Regeneration (Mid-Low; all Servants have regenerative capabilities)
Attack Potency: At least City level+ (Should be comparable to other Servants, such as Archer), Mountain level with Caliburn (A B-rank Anti-Army Noble Phantasm and thus comparable to the Soaring Spear that Strikes with Death), at least Large Mountain level, likely Island level with overloaded Caliburn (When overloaded with magical energy, it will showcase a release of power on a similar scale to Excalibur before being destroyed, killed Berserker seven times over in this fashion when used by her older self and Shirou).
Speed: Massively Hypersonic (Should be somewhat comparable to her older self. When projecting Caliburn and calling upon her memories and fighting skill, Shirou deflected a barrage of Noble Phantasms from the Gate of Babylon)
Lifting Strength: Unknown
Striking Strength: At least City Class+
Durability: At least City level+
Stamina: High. Other Servants can fight for nearly an entire day without stopping.
Standard Equipment: Her armor, materialized through her own power, and Caliburn.
Intelligence: Saber is an extremely accomplished swordswoman suitable for her class. However, this version of her is younger and thus less skilled than her older self. She is also knowledgeable of magecraft, having been Merlin's apprentice in her youth. She is a fair bit more idealistic, however, and her instincts remain sharp, allowing her to easily read an opponent's style and predict the flow of battle in a manner closer to precognition.
Weaknesses: Saber is bound by her honor as a knight, and she'd thus never rely on underhanded or more pragmatic tactics - if she does, Caliburn will shatter. Her sixth sense can be fooled by things that Saber has never experienced. Releasing Caliburn's full power will destroy it.

|~ Saber Lily using her Noble Phantasm|
Caliburn: Golden Sword of the Victorious: The holy sword that Arturia Pendragon pulled from the stone in her youth to become king. While it is weaker than Excalibur, as it is a blade forged by mortal hands, out of the two, it is Arturia's preferred weapon, as she trained with it in her youth. When she first drew it from the stone, it filled her surroundings with a golden light, making her "something inhuman" and stopping her aging. It can be used in a similar method to Excalibur, converting Arturia's magical energy into heat and releasing it as a beam of light that killed Berserker seven times over when used by her older self and Shirou. Although it is inferior to Excalibur, it can showcase a similar output if Arturia overloads it with her magical energy at the cost of its own destruction.
Magic Resistance: An innate ability that grants protection against magical effects. Unlike the Resistance effect that merely rejects Magical Energy, this ability cancels the spells altogether. Due to her young age, the heart of the dragon inside her has not awoken, and Saber Lily's Magic Resistance is thus lower than that of her adult self. It is still powerful enough to negate magecraft of B-rank or lower, even High-Thaumaturgy.
Riding: The ability to ride mounts. Due to her training as a knight, and the time she's spent with horses, Saber Lily can flawlessly ride animals and drive vehicles that have been properly trained or adjusted.
Blossoming Journey: A blessing on the knight who had only just begun her journey to become king. Due to her idealism and hopefulness, the hearts of those Saber Lily fights alongside are lifted and they fight more actively, inspired by her example.
Instinct: The power to "feel" the most favorable developments for oneself during battle. While not as sharp as her older self's instincts, Saber Lily's senses are still highly refined, reaching the level of true precognition, and allowing her to reduce the penalties that visual obstructions cause by 50%. She has a knack for picking up on the troubles of others, and is driven to help all those in need.
Mana Burst: A skill that allows for an increase in performance by infusing one's weapons and body with magical energy, for both defensive and offensive purposes, effectively recreating the effects of a jet burst. Saber Lily uses this skill mainly for defense and high-speed movement, propelling herself across the battlefield at high speeds while reinforcing her entire body with magical energy. With A-rank, even a stick can become a great weapon.
