The youngest of the Gorgon Sisters that appear in Greek Mythology.
A beautiful MonsterGORGON ゴルゴン
Personality Gorgon was once a goddess, renewed as an existence of a monster that devours humans. A portion of her body resembles that of a human, but even so, her disposition is that of a powerful predator, an avenger embodying ferocity. The vestiges of what once was one of the violet-haired goddesses, who had lived in a small isle ever since time immemorial, is but her outward appearance. Her nature is already close to that of the monster Gorgon, who had took in her beloved sisters and had pulverized the many heroes who had dared embarked upon the isle. She comprehends human speech by means of an exceedingly high intelligence; she does not fall to madness, and it is not that her mind is being contaminated————yet above it all, a mutual understanding with her is essentially difficult.
"You have seen my true face? Hehe... Do not be afraid. You are not stone. You are my treasured master. Thoroughly, till the last... I will handle you courteously"
Gorgon has a degree of awareness of being a vessel upon materialization. If by any chance, they manage to deepen the bonds with each other... her Master will then acquire a great power. However, one should nonetheless realize that Gorgon is a diverging existence with a different standpoint from humans. Both her affection and her love————are not meant for kinship with humans
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
Gorgon can perform adjacent attacks by means of her hooked claws and mid-ranged attacks by means of her hair feelers that had turned into snakes. Long-ranged attacks by means of an intense magical energy light is also possible
Even when she is blindfolded, she perceives the world through hearing, touch, smell, and magic-detection to have an even more precise outlook than with sight.
Lethal poison from her veins can be made into elixirs that could revive the dead, and her blood that were spilled can turn into poisonous snakes
Noble Phantasm: A
Memory Connection: C
Monstrous Strength: A+
Self Replenishment (Mana): A
Demon of Mutation: BOriginally a composite Skill that combines the effects of Battle Continuation and Self-Modification, it denotes how a hero or god was transformed into a demon in life. A Skill that considerably strengthens one's abilities as a Servant by emphasizing a fact from the past. Gorgon achieved a rank of STR and END that is absolutely impossible for a human body
Screams Of Fear: A++A roar that arouses another's instinctive awe as a living being. Gorgon can bestow fear, continuous Defense Down, momentary Large Defense Down, curse and other conditions on all enemies
Mystical Eyes: A+Cybele, the Mystic Eyes of Petrification, are Gorgon’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.
renouncing to her last vestiges as a goddess, the shadow of her former self that she becomes at the very end, and the monster that was her (original) self's foundation, the “Gorgon/Monster of Gorgon”, is temporarily materialized and all life within the designated territory is liquefied. It instantly robs the lives of humans, and even Servants are given severe damage
Despite being a strengthened version of Blood Fort Andromeda, it does not require setup time and is invoked with just the release of its True Name. Effectiveness is somewhat low against inorganic-type opponents.
