|“||If it's for the purpose of creating the path mankind will follow to dharmata and thus to enlightenment, then I will come forth and grant salvation to all things and guide them with my mighty Vajra.||„|
|~ Saver's upon being ordered to fight|
Saver (セイヴァー, Seivā) is a "messiah" type Servant, summoned into the Moon Cell by the Automaton, and acting as the second Servant of Twice H. Pieceman, due to their similar ideals. Saver responded to the summon, and while he loathes wars, he follows Twice's orders to see him through his salvation, as he cannot turn away one in anguish. His true name is Buddha, the messiah who led the path of enlightenment and Buddhahood, and he is a Bodhisattva, a Deva of cosmic proportions, capable of governing solar systems.
More specifically, he is Shakyamuni, the most famous Buddha, who became Buddha through self-realization, and was released from all pain and suffering while still alive. His teachings are the basis of Buddhism, but the path of enlightenment varies from person to person. Be they good or evil, all can be freed from suffering and achieve Buddhahood. Eventually, all of humanity will achieve salvation.

Intelligence: Having escaped Samsara and reached Enlightenment, Saver is knowledgeable in all things spiritual and has existed for thousands of years and it is implied that he'll survive to the end of time. Calm and level-headed, he is not prone to indecision or self-doubt, calmly following his Master's orders out of pity for his soul. Despite advocating non-violence, he is a master of unarmed combat as evidenced by his EX-Rank in Kalaripayattu, the basis for nearly every rational martial art in existence. As a result, he is able to fight combatants as skilled as Nero, Archer, and Tamamo on even ground while remaining in a meditative position.
Weaknesses: In his Servant form, Saver cannot utilize Authority without harming and straining himself. Transmigration into One and Enlightenment of the Sacred Fig weakens should the target be more than human (i.e. of divine blood) and cannot be used on characters who are an existence above mankind, such as gods. It can also be overcome by those who have reached enlightenment through their own strong ideals, or those who have not known the suffering of life or its four noble truths.
Notable Attacks / Techniques:
Authority: As a God, Saver 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, Saver cannot utilize his Authority without heavily straining and harming himself.

|~ Saver utilizing Amita Amitabha|
Chakravartin: Turner of the Wheel: Saver's first Noble Phantasm, a seven-kilometer long chakram that expands in the sky above him. It slowly rotates, firing bolts of light at nearby enemies like a mobile, omnidirectional artillery platform. Over time, the number of rings increase, and the lights on the mandala behind Saver light up, until there are seven rings and seven lights. Once these seven prismatic rings and lights are all activated, it allows for the use of Saver's true Noble Phantasm, Amita Amitabha.
Amita Amitabha: Transmigration into One: The ultimate Anti-Unit Noble Phantasm, and Saver's true Noble Phantasm. After Chakravartin is fully charged, Saver can utilize Amita Amitabha by reciting its true name. The mandala's lights converge onto the chakram, and all the rings of light combine into a single, massive spinning ring, forming the halo seen on the back of the celestial Buddha, Vairocana. The pillars of light surround his opponent and engulf them, creating a massive explosion, a teaching to showcase the final Moksha, calling upon energies rivaling the laws of man's creation. According to the Indian idea of Brahman, all humans are reincarnations of Brahma, and all humanity is thus one individual. Amita Amitabha "saves" those that it strikes, freeing them from suffering and returning all things to the Buddha.
As human history grows longer and longer, the attack grows more powerful, and it deals damage that no living thing can withstand, though those that are not alive and have not known the suffering of life or the four noble truths have a small chance of survival. Those who have achieved enlightenment through their own strong ideals can overcome it, and it is weaker against those that are not completely human, and cannot be used at all on those who are an existence above mankind.
Charisma: The natural talent to command an army. Increases the ability of allies during group battles. Saver's deification and nature as a widely-worshiped entity is reflected in his A+ rank, at which point, it is not just a skill, but more of a curse, strongly affecting humans and increasing the morale of those who follow Saver by a significant amount. This skill can be used as a subtle form of mind manipulation, allowing Saver to simply ask for things from their opponent, upon which his charisma will compel them to do so unless one is particularly strong-willed and/or rebellious.
Counter Hero: The Class Skill of the Saver class, which reduces the parameters of all heroes that they face in combat. Saver's B-rank in this skill reduces all of an opponent's parameters by two ranks, effectively cutting their statistics down by 40%. It is less effective against anti-heroes, reducing it only by one rank, or 20%.
Enlightenment of the Sacred Fig: A skill that renders protection to the one who has reached the Truth of the World and has become a Protector of the World. It unconditionally reduces the damage dealt by physical, conceptual, and interdimensional attacks by a value equivalent to Saver's total health. It also shuts out all possibility of mental interference. For Buddha, even the seven desires of man can be met with perfect tranquility.
Kalaripayattu: An ancient Indian martial art, the ancestor of all martial arts founded on the basis of rational thought. It does not rely on power or talent, and is defensively oriented. Saver's EX rank showcases his mastery over the art, being capable of casually fighting and defeating Servants while unarmed and remaining in a meditative stance.
