Divine Core of the Goddess: [EX]
A Skill that expresses one being a perfected goddess since birth. It has the effect of preserving the absoluteness of the mind and body. It repels all mental interferences, prevents the body from growth, and prevents the figure from change no matter how many calories are absorbed. It is a composite Skill that comprises the Skill Divinity.

The natural talent to command an army. Increases the abilities of allies during group battles.
Sometimes a god who watches over civilization, and sometimes a king who governs over a country, it is possible to say that Quetzalcoatl’s charisma is almost of the highest rank.

A Skill that shows the wisdom of having taught many people.
Except for those that are a burden to the body (such as Divinity) and those that are characteristic of certain heroes, many Skills can be practically demonstrated at a proficiency of A Rank.

It was originally a kind of Authority, but it has deteriorated into a Skill because Quetzalcoatl has materialized as a Divided Spirit.

Xiuhcoatl: O’ Flame, Burn the Gods Themselves
- Rank: EX*
- Classification: Anti-Personnel Noble Phantasm*
- Range: 1
- Maximum Number of Targets: 1 person
Xiuhcoatl (Fire Serpent) Driver. The second coming of the flames that burned down Quetzalcoatl’s own temple in order to prevent the Evil God Tezcatlipoca from acquiring its many treasures, during a time when Quetzalcoatl was leaving the Aztecs. Flames envelop the surroundings, and enemies are temporarily prevented from invoking the True Name Release of their Noble Phantasms————However, this Noble Phantasm has become extremely ridiculous because of the person’s addiction to lucha libre. Basically, she spins the opponent around in the air and drops them on the top of their head in a piledriver, or accordingly to the situation presented, she might aim to kick the opponent from a height of 1000 meters, becoming a strike as if she is a meteor. Quetzalcoatl herself calls it the Ultimo Tope Patada.
*Xiuhcoatl is an A-ranked, Anti-Personnel~Anti-Fortress Noble Phantasm in the game profile
Quetzalcoatl: The Winged Serpent
- Rank: A
- Classification: Anti-Personnel~Anti-Army Noble Phantasm
- Range: 2~80
- Maximum Number of Targets: 1~200 people
Quetzalcoatl (Feathered Serpent). This Noble Phantasm became the reason why Quetzalcoatl has the Rider Class. She summons the Quetzalcoatlus – a pterosaur from the Cretaceous Period that was given a name deviated from her owns – and rides it. It is part of the Phantasmal Kind on the Phantasmal~Divine Beast level, which is also far more powerful than the Quetzalcoatlus that actually lived in the Cretaceous Period. The Quetzalcoatlus is known as the largest flying animal in history. During the moment of its True Name Release, the mounted Quetzalcoatl is able to perform the manipulation of large-scale lightning, winds and rains…
Piedra Del Sol: The Sun Stone
- Rank: EX
- Classification: Anti-Army~Anti-Fortress Noble Phantasm
- Range: 10~99
- Maximum Number of Targets: 900 people
Piedra Del Sol (Aztec Sun Stone). Quetzalcoatl’s trump card. The megalith of the ancient Aztecs. The Aztec calendar that is said to show all the world’s past and present. This megalith with a 3.75-meter diameter appears overhead, this being a “gate”, and it drags out a portion of Quetzalcoatl’s Authority because of Quetzalcoatl herself, who as a Divine Spirit is the great source of this activity. Intense solar winds rampage over a vast range, and they will certainly be reflected as god’s majesty itself.
Quetzalcoatl usually has a feminine tone that is graceful and polite. More or less composed. However, when she encounters something that makes her a little happy, there is a sudden rise in excitement within her, and while still like that, she has difficulties in pronunciation, becoming like a pseudo-foreigner in her speech.

A god of peace and tranquility. Now, an enigmatic elder sister who is addicted to lucha libre. A gentle god who guided to prosperity and with affection, the lovely humans. A gentle god with a famous legend. Basically, human beings are the subjects Quetzalcoatl watches over in the near future, and whether they are people who point their blades, or whether they are people who believe in themselves, she thinks about how one should not kill thoughtlessly. A bright optimist. However, a faithful optimist as well. She surely has a smiling face that makes the Sun apparent in the hearts of men, and she surely believes in opening up a path to a happy era, not letting that brightness be extinguished no matter what kind of crisis there is. An elder sister with a very big-hearted spirit, a broad-mindedness that is like the Earth, and a bright and passionate disposition that is like the Sun.
Nonetheless, Quetzalcoatl’s thought criteria and the scale of her existence is that of a god’s. She cannot capture everything on the same scale as a human being’s, and she may even sometimes pass a cruel/brutal judgement as a result. She is without mercy to opponents that are considered disasters or foreign enemies, displaying a terrifying facial expression to them. For most things, Quetzalcoatl endorses communication and prosperity with a smiling face, saying that “It’s wonderful everybody’s fuineee, so this elder sister is happy!”, but she becomes displeased when talking about Tezcatlipoca and alcohol. This person deeply regrets that she was defeated in the battle with Tezcatlipoca, while simultaneously, she feels a lot of resentment as a result. Rather than saying that she is angry at Tezcatlipoca, she becomes “sullen” towards her powerlessness in defeating Tezcatlipoca – who is the Spider – and that Jaguar Deity. Regarding “alcohol”, it is the biggest reason why she was defeated in the battle against the former Evil God, and although she wants “no more”, she drinks without thinking in order to encourage herself, even now. Only a small bit will get her drunk, and she will state what she really thinks with her “bad self…” And then, she becomes unconscious, having no recollection of it.
The particulars on how Quetzalcoatl got addicted to lucha libre (professional wrestling) is quite simple: she ended up seeing lucha libre during a time when she was summoned into some era, and that overwhelming shock since then made a very strong impression even on her main body sitting on the Throne, or so it seems.
“So, it’s the body! Something like using weapons to occasionally kill each other… that should be avoided to the utmost care! Even during times of discussion, lucha is the most suitable answer!”
Quetzalcoatl’s favourite luchador is Mistico. As a God of Wind, and as a God of the Morning Star, she observed the luchadores (luchadoras in the case of women) flying freely as if they have wings, and she was deeply moved, shedding tears of gratitude, before having experienced then the distant future, or something like that. Thereafter, her fondness for diligence and her characteristic curiosity turned into her fortunes, and she became a luchadora just like that, acquiring the persona of a professional wrestling enthusiast which is unprecedented even among the goddesses. She boasts that she can definitely succeed in applying a headlock onto any kind of deity or monster once she puts her mind to it, but because the propagation of lucha libre is centered around aerial techniques, she is currently sealing the submission techniques that are the quintessence of lucha.
Attitude Towards Master
The deities of South America returned to the land of the jungles, stopping their activities in the Age of Gods, but they were dreaming of the development of humanity. Humanity, “even though they are still irrational now, in the distant future, they will become autonomous, they will compete with each other, and through thick and thin, they will become a species prospering far and wide, abundantly, and plentifully”, and for those kinds of deities that arrived by being imported from the outside, they slept, dreaming of the humanity that will become that prosperous species. Those are the deities of South America in the Fate World.
During the moment where Quetzalcoatl is summoned as a Servant, she views something sprouting in her Master, and then becomes deeply moved. Basically a Servant who loves her Master. However, she does not “love her Master” in the meaning of the broader sense, but she loves the “growth of this seed called mankind that is being nurtured within this Master.”
“So I think it’s not good to mince them with your snake parts. Isn’t this place more or less… our meeting spot? Disposing our captured prey (humans) here… don’t you have the manners to at least dispatch them back at your nest?”
“Oh well… It’s certainly my favourite way of fighting… to have someone become minced meat if they lose at a contest of strength, but… either way, it’s still unacciiiptable; I cooore about something like the difference in our ranks after all! It’d be very messy to kill yeuuu!”
“Oh. If you’re poor at planchas, are you poor at landing too? You can’t become skilled then as a first-class luchador like that.”
“That’s ragretfulll! You’re not worthy enough for that altotudeee!”
“Ah————Jeez, I love ○○-kun / ○○-chan————! I’m pleased that I entered the Goddess Alliance————!”
“Thank you. I lost, Master! So this is the first time a human beat me! The Goddess of South America, Quetzalcoatl! From here on, I’ll wield my power for your sake!”
Historical Character and Figure
One of the supreme existences in Central and South America as well as in Aztec Mythology. In mythology, it is said that Quetzalcoatl is a gentle god who loves peace and that he bestowed many blessings to the humans. The meaning of his name is “Winged Serpent”. It is said that he is called both the God of Wind and the God of Culture. There is also a legend that he is a Sun God who governed the sun for a time.
Quetzalcoatl was once regarded as the same as the Good God Tlahuizcalpantecuhtli, who is the embodiment of the Morning Star, and he denied the sacrifices the humans offered to the gods “as unnecessary.” Although he guided the people to prosperity by bestowing them many knowledges such as agriculture and fire, all while loving everybody, he bought the resentment of the god Tezcatlipoca, and in the end, he was defeated in battle by him; it is said that he took off from the Aztecs to Venus, and his figure was erased. Prophecies were left behind of his return to the Aztecs once again; later on, the Aztec people believed that Quetzalcoatl had returned with the Spanish people and reached the decision of having the Aztecs perish.
Quetzalcoatl was originally a male deity. At the time of his materialization, he obtained an existence as a female deity. Maybe he was drawn towards the image of Venus (Aphrodite) – the goddess of beauty and the planet Venus – due to the influence of the existence of the planet Venus, which is regarded as the same as Quetzalcoatl’s for a long time, or so Quetzalcoatl herself now says.
The South American deities are greatly unlike the other mythological systems of deities, and those South American deities would take action in “transferring from one human to another.” Even the god Quetzalcoatl was identified in several ways according to different regions, and it may not come to light that this female body of some time period became Quetzalcoatl.
Character in FGO
Quetzalcoatl appeared in Chapter 7. One of the goddesses in the Three Goddess Alliance, an alliance that was meant to destroy the Mesopotamian world. A goddess of Central and South America as well as of Aztec Mythology. One of the goddesses summoned by Tiamat. Her favourite phrase in the moments of agitating her opponent is “Yucatán?” Seen as free and uncontrolled, she is a goddess full of kind-hearted intelligence. She hates sacrificial ceremonies and loves mankind. She knows the lucha libre (professional wrestling) of Central and South America upon materializing, and she is receiving a great influence from this.
Quetzalcoatl joined the Goddess Alliance in order to protect the humans. Although she is disgusted with the Holy Grail, she does not want the transfer of the Holy Grail to the other two goddesses to happen, so she decided to carry out the fall of Uruk. That person’s principle was called “knocking all humans down to the cement one by one.” Something is suspicious.
Quetzalcoatl fundamentally wrestles barehanded, but of course, she will also make use of a weapon from her myth. That weapon’s name is the Macana. A weapon that wears a comprehensible outward appearance, and it is very painful to punch on.
The Yucatán Peninsula is the place where a meteorite fell and caused the extinction of the dinosaurs, and a mythological system was cultivated above this plateau, concealing the “bestowed ‘blood’ from an outside astronomical object.” The first generation Kukulkan (the name of Quetzalcoatl in Mayan Civilization) was an existence who possessed elements (bacteria and microorganisms) of this outside astronomical object, or so it was told. This backbone is closely matched with Altera’s, and yet, it was a visitor from the universe more ancient than Altera. However, there is a discrepancy where Altera was an invader while Kukulkan was a being adrift in space.
“The worst, disgusting Divine Spirit no matter the time or place. That damn spider bastard! And as aforementioned, you manifested in the worst form just like I said!————Really, you’re so dirty-looking to the point that I want to smash you to pieces. Among other things, a god tainted by modern civilization, and I wonder if you’re not ashamed of yourself as a god!”
※(Today’s “Shut up, you’re in no position to say this”)
“I can’t hear anythunggg, and I can’t see it anywhoreee! As one would expect from Jaguar, it’s in perfect stuealthhh!”
Ereshkigal / Ishtar / Gorgon
“Ciao~❤ Well, I’d thought I never see the day that I get to meet all of you here!”
“The more I know, the more we overlap! Let’s get along, my fellow Sun!”
Ozymandias / Karna
“They’re like my younger brothers. Eh? They’re not?”
“I’ll replace the blood in your entire body with a “deathly poison that goes hand in hand with the most extreme pain in this world”, and furthermore, I’ll continuously bathe solar winds on your body until it becomes only bones; after that, I’ll affix your soul to them so that you’ll live as a skeleton as well, before making you do ten thousand years worth of labouring underground in the Underworld!”
Comment from the Illustrator
Given that I received a clear concept from Mr. Nasu himself during the time of Quetzalcoatl’s design, it became quite troublesome on how I changed the clothing design of a character of the same name that I drew before. Concerning the results, I think it has gotten better. It is a good memory of how we did a nice correspondence of letters on guessing what faces were drawn on them. (Hiroe Rei)
