Mysterious. Cold. Machinelike. Surprisingly tall. There’s little doubt that Rider from Fate/Stay Night is awesome. But who is she, really? How much do we know about this serpentine woman?
This post will contain heavy spoilers for the third and final route of Fate/Stay Night, Heaven’s Feel, and spoil Rider’s identity, among other things. It is also an awful lot of words and contains passing mentions of sexual assault. Be ye fairly warned.
