King Arthur, the legendary king of Britain.
Artoria was her childhood name, but she came to be called King Arthur after taking up the crown.
In the age that saw the doom of chivalry, she took her holy sword and brought a brief, final period of peace and glory to Britain.
King Arthur was historically recorded as a male, but in this world she was a young woman who dressed as a man.

Because Artoria acted as a man, she is oblivious to the attentions of the opposite sex.
Bond Level 2
Artoria was an ideal king who improved the lives and livelihoods of all her subjects. She possessed unassailable strength, which she used to protect the weak. She was an overachiever who kept a calm and serious demeanor no matter the circumstance.
…However, she refuses to admit a dislike of failure, and does not hold back in any sort of contest. When she loses, she does so with great anguish.
Bond Level 3
The natural ability to lead an army.
In group battles, the abilities of Artoria’s own forces are enhanced.
Artoria was an incorruptible and selfless king.
The knights followed her sense of justice, and it gave commoners the hope to endure great poverty.
She reigned not to benefit the few elite, but rather for the sake of all her powerless subjects.
Bond Level 4
Sword of Promised Victory — Excalibur
Type: Anti-fortress Noble Phantasm
A god-forged weapon made not by human hands, but tempered by the planet itself.
It is the pinnacle of all holy swords.
Excalibur’s truly incredible function lies not with the sword but within its scabbard, but the scabbard has been lost to eternity.
Bond Level 5
The legend of King Arthur marked the end of an age of chivalry.
Arthur’s kingdom was assaulted by foreign tribes, and Britain was unable to avert disaster.
Mordred, one of the knights of the Round Table, incited a rebellion that split the kingdom in two. The brilliance of the knights’ castle Camelot was extinguished.
Unlock: A Reason to Fight
King Arthur struck down Mordred atop the hill at Camlann, but was herself mortally wounded.
In her final breaths, she entrusted her holy sword to Bedivere, her last trusted confidant. Then, she passed from this world.
Her body was then taken to a utopia — the paradise Avalon, which does not exist in this world. Legend has it that King Arthur will once again save Britain, in the far future.
