The youngest of the Gorgon Sisters that appear in Greek Mythology.
A beautiful woman with a tall figure and outstanding style, but since for Medusa the criteria for beauty is "being small and lovely", it seems she has a complex over her tall figure and mature style.
“"I will kill you gently."
Despite being a beauty, she tends to appear to have a merciless personality because of her thorny aura and cold behavior. But in fact is simply a languorous beautiful woman who prefers to spend her time doing nothing. Loves alcohol and reading.
Her behavior is severe because she is indifferent about being appreciated by others.
Medusa and her sisters, Euryale and Stheno were born from the wishes of mankind for ideal idols.
She was originally considered to be a princess loved by humans, but Athena, jealous of their beauty, cursed Medusa alone, taking away her "faith from each and every person" and exiling her to the Shapeless Isle. Their love for her turned to hatred, and she was banished by those who had adored her.
Weeping in loneliness, she had no idea as to her sin that forced her to be exiled. Although her sisters were not affected and still greatly loved, they too accompanied her there out of caring for their younger sister. She was happy even on the barren island due to their company, and only had to fear the coming humans.
Despite also possessing the components to grow from a goddess that is merely loved by the people into a goddess that saves (rules) the people, she was tainted by hatred due to the persecution from humans and ended up becoming a hero-killing Magic Beast as a result, She grew into the Gorgon each day as her body, heart, and very being decayed, all backed by the thought of becoming stronger for the sake of protecting her sisters. Even that reached a point where her sisters instead became nuisances who were intruding upon her lair, and were thus devoured.
The Gorgon's notoriety continued until Perseus decided to bring back its head for his own fame, and was able to successfully slay her in a long and prolonged battle by giving her a moment of mental lucidity to show her how far she had gone
She is a unique Heroic Spirit who displays a great variety of skills and Noble Phantasms that are particularly high numbered even amongst other Servants, all of which are traces left from her time as a goddess. Due to her status as a former earth goddess, she has a strong connection to the earth, sensitive enough to its state to be able to sense disturbances in Earth’s leyline
Rider fights with a low-risk and high-return type of warfare, mainly with a pair of Nameless Dagger in close combat, not suited to short-range battles, instead best utilized as a thrown weapon from a distance It is not a Noble Phantasm, and it is thought to be a weapon that reflects her inner character. The dagger and chains seemed to be magically manifested from her hair, without any limit such as how much hair is on her head, of which remains the same despite her manifesting dozens of chains, and controls them not only through sheer skill, but through a telekinetic ability.
While she is normally blindfolded, she perceives the world through hearing, touch, smell, and magic-detection to have an even more precise outlook than with sight
Noble Phantasm: A+
Magic Resistance: B
Independent Action: C
Monstrous Strength: B
Mystical Eyes: A+Cybele, the Mystic Eyes of Petrification, are Rider's Mystic Eyes, said to be a "curse of the gods sealed by the powers of shrines." Though petrification sorcery is no strange thing for modern Thaumaturgy, even if its users are rare and few in numbers, Mystic Eyes capable of petrifying others are something that nobody, human or not, possesses in the present era. They are designated as Jewel under the Noble Colors system, which surpasses the Gold-ranked Eyes of the Dead Apostles and are exclusively possessed by Holy Spirits and Magical Beasts from the Age of Gods
The blindfold of Medusa, a type of powerful Bounded Field Noble Phantasm. It only requires a steady supply of energy from the user to affect a target, unlike Mystic Eyes that requires a direct line of sight.
It has the ability to "seal all magical properties", and if used on others, it will imprison the consciousness of the enemy within her own mind; it can even obstruct the invocations of abilities such as magic, Skills, or Noble Phantasms, before removing any abilities they possessed in the outside World once inside. Those trapped within are said to see a nightmare mixed with both delight and taboo.
The Temple of Blood that surrounded the Shapeless Isle which was the home of Medusa and her sisters, turning it into a palace of darkness, dyed crimson from blood, where the sun didn't shine.
The temple, known to petrify those who embark on the island and devour them, was a boundary field constructed by the Mystic Eyes Medusa possessed. By magnification of the Mystic Eyes' projection, the life force of those inside it is plundered with absorption power that literally "dissolves the body" of ordinary persons without any Magic Resistance. Even Heroic Spirits will have their life force plundered as long as they are inside the barrier
Bellerophon: Bridle of Chivalry
A shining golden bridle and whip paired as a set that is capable of fully controlling a Divine Beast, and it is Medusa's most powerful attack. It is not a Noble Phantasm to be used in a one-on-one fight, but rather an "Anti-Army Noble Phantasm" that can cut down enemies in a wide area. It is an oddity even among Noble Phantasms, having no effect without a mount. Its power is great, providing extraordinary offensive and defensive capabilities of the highest level.
In battle, the strengthened Phantasmal Beast and Medusa fight as one.Sharing its name with Bellerophon, the young man who tamed and rode the Pegasus in Greek Mythology, she uses it with her Pegasus, allowing it to display its full power even with its normally docile nature
