Title(s): Peach Boy, Hero of Okayama, Little Peachling
Alignment: Neutral Good
Personality: Cheerful doesn't even begin to describe the young Momotaro's disposition. Always with a smile on his face, be it subtle or bright and with tons of teeth showing, his presence always brings joy and laughter from the peachy boy. The modern world fascinates him and exploring new things is always a joy, finding joy in the little things was something he was always happy seeing his parents be proud of him for. He has a softer spot for elderly couples than anyone else, even though when he meets someone he always tries to work out the best way to be their friend and will always almost by instinct offer a new friend a dumpling or whatever food he has on him.
The boy seems proud of his legend but he doesn't like talking about it too much since it makes him embarrassed and can always make him blush and laugh nervously, not sure if historians ever got his legend right or if time has changed the world's view on him. War and violence aren't things he is particularly fond of but if the moment for battle comes, he will put his all into it like he would with anything. He never does anything half-assed and if he says he will do something, he will go to no ends to succeed. If anything, his boyish demeanor shines through even if his age when he did the legend was unsure, his appearance matches his cheery demeanor. He doesn't like to talk often about the bandages on his arms though.
Objective for the Grail: To Live Alongside The People That Celebrate Him
Biography: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Momotarō etc.usf.edu/lit2go/72/japanese-fairy-…spirotta.com/story-momotarocandlelightstories.com/2011/03/13/pea…
Momotaro appears to acknowledge all the stories as true, implying all of them were true in places
Weapon: A satchel full of dumplings
Riding C: The ability for riding. Most vehicles and animals can be handled with above average skill. However, cannot ride the likes of Phantasmal Species such as Monstrous Beasts. This reflects his ability to ride animals and boats that he used to reach Onigashima
Magic Resistance C: Cancel spells with a chant below two verses. Cannot defend against magecraft on the level of High-Thaumaturgy and Greater Rituals.
Animal Communication B: Based on the legend of his animal companions, this skill represents his ability to rally animals and communicate fluently with them, especially effective when gaining their alliance and help.
Raid of Onigashima C: Due to the nature of his journey, Momonosuke was famous and acclaimed throughout Japan's history as being able to infiltrate into the enemy's base and fight even better whilst in an enemy camp. This skill utilizes Japan's telling of him as a warrior that could fight better under perilous conditions, whenever he is fighting in enemy bases or in their territory, his fighting prowess, and strength increases.
Charisma E++: A folktale that spurred the flames of national pride and wartime expertise, Momotaro is renowned for his courage and the effect he has on those who hear his tale and are inspired to never give up, as well as his natural courage and charisma that convinced the divine beasts which he encountered to fight alongside him. Charisma here only exhibits its true nature when used alongside his animal companions to spur them on.
Anti-Evil (Oni) A+: Momotaro naturally gravitates towards defeating evil and protecting the defenseless, in his case the old couple who adopted him. In the legend, it's said that although the beasts around him terrified the oni he combatted, his presence was enough to inflict terror into all those who had evil in their hearts. This skill is designed to show the proof of Momotaro's quest against evil when he is fighting an opponent with evil in their heart he can inspire power within himself to further bolster his abilities so that he could overcome the devil. This skill has another utility in which his mere presence with the passive skill inspires fear within those classified as Oni, as in the tale of his conquest of Onigashima he left the chief alive, as he begged for his life and Momotaro complied and captured him alive.
Noble Phantasm: Your trump card and the symbol of your legend as a whole. The limit for these is generally going to be two unless you're using a canon Servant who has more.
Name: Peach Sword
Title: Blade of Friendship and Mercy
NP Type: Anti-Unit
Maximum Number of Targets: 1
Description: When he rampaged the island Oni, Onigashima, Momotaro was noted to have wielded a sword that frightened the monsters to their very cores, and he sliced them up, carving a path through the island for himself. The animals fought valiantly but Momotaro himself was the hero, the hero of the tale always wins and there he was, the chief of the Oni begging him for mercy and with the blade pointed towards the chief, he showed mercy, only making him hand over the treasures that he had in the island, forcing the chief to be grateful for him sparing his life and handing over every last piece of loot in the island, giving our hero what he deserved for his courageous journey. Wielding that sword, Momotaro showed true bravery and all he encountered could not help but be his friend.
This sword allows Momotaro to be summoned as a Saber, his usual class being Rider but the valiant hero must adjust to his role with what is provided. Without activating its true name, the blade is powerful in battle and its power is only forged by the centuries of tales of Momotaro that has passed along, all of the legends forged into this sword, representing friendship and unification, something his tale grew to represent as the years went by. When in battle, if an enemy is beaten by Momotaros he is always one to spare a willing foe instead of finishing them. In doing so, an effect resembling proof of friendship activates allowing him to engage in a dialogue and unless any mental corruption is active on the opponent, any feelings of conflict against Momotaro are quelled. Also, after defeating the opponent, the opponent cannot Directly attack Momotaro unless a command seal or skill wills them to, or if Momotaro befriends someone else using this Noble Phantasm as it can only be used on one opponent at a time.
Name: Companions of Momotaro
Title: The Dog, The Monkey, and The Pheasant
NP Type: Anti-Unit
Range: 1 - 10
Maximum Number of Targets: 3
Description: Most notable about his journey to Onigashima was the companions that Momotaro encountered and subsequently befriended. No not men, but rather animals, a Dog, a Monkey, and a Pheasant. All three agreed to assist the boy on his journey to Onigashima separately, in return for a dumpling each. They all fought valiantly and showed true bravery in the heat of battle, all of them containing the ability to fight the band of Oni till only one remained. Momotaro was a gift from the gods and because of this many suggest that these animals were divine beasts sent by the gods to assist Momotaro on his brave quest. Be this as it may, they respect Momotaro and followed his commands and words to free Momotaro's people from tyranny. The dog bit the heels of the Oni, the Pheasant pecked them all over and the Monkey pounced and scratched them. It was said the party of the four of them had the power of an army of a thousand.
This noble phantasm is the most powerful of the Peach Boy's arsenal, his most famous act that the Japanese people made more and more destructive over the years in retellings. In times of trouble or on the offense, Momotaro may call out the three names of his companions and give them food, then they will assist him once more. He may only summon them for 10 minutes before having to cool down for a couple of hours due to the destructive nature of them, however, this would only be if he had a master with impeccable magic circuits, as this would use a lot of energy for both parties. The animals are independent and don't require direct orders, following Momotaro's intentions and defending him at all costs, all three beasts have nigh-divine power but when singled out could be defeated one on one, however they are not gone forever. The beasts however receive all the same effects that Momotaro receives as the party always appears together in history, therefore you cannot remove them from each other, meaning they all receive power boosts from Raid of Onigashima and Anti-Evil (oni), however Momotaro can use his charisma skill on the beasts, but this would not affect himself.
