Identity[edit | edit source]
Caster's True Name is Irisviel von Einzbern, also referred to as the Dress of Heaven, manifested in a transient form as a transient Servant. A person who sneakily emerged from the Holy Grail. A person that is the same as the terminal of the Holy Grail.
By what cause did this miracle happen? Irisviel is a homunculus terminal of the Holy Grail. An infant that returned to the Greater Grail but turned into a Servant as its bunrei (offshoot). She continues to protect a certain guardian cursed by fate who exists in a place far away. She is "forever far yet close at hand, never distant yet always out of reach."
Irisviel takes on the form as the Holy Grail through having bonded with it. Unlike the disposition that represents the polluted Holy Grail————the Holy Grail of Fuyuki that concealed "All the World's Evils" within it, she is strongly endowed with the aspect of "Irisviel von Einzbern" as a wife and mother. She is by no means an official Divine Spirit, but suppose that if we were to apply her as one, it would seem that she is an existence furnished with an Earth Mother Deity-like disposition.
Why has she manifested? What will she perform as a Holy Grail once getting in contact with someone with the qualifications? There is still no answer for both of these enigmas.
Personality[edit | edit source]
A graceful woman. A transient Servant who has a mother's open kindness. Irisviel is gentle, overflowing with deep affection and love. And as a matter of fact————she is brimming with curiosity more than any other.
Irisviel does not hold any favortism towards anyone for she comes into contact with the Master with gentleness in the exact same way she is gentle towards someone else. Due to circumstances, she is a person who has experienced the Holy Grail War in the past, and from that standpoint, she has assumed that a sense of distance should be kept between the Servant and the Master; it is possible to say that she has a tendency to maintain that distance appropriately.
