A goddess of beauty, good harvests and war from Mesopotamian mythology. Said to be the most pampered, or rather, most beloved goddess by the other deities.
This form is not that of the goddess Ishtar herself, but a pseudo-Servant condition in which a human that has a wavelength close to her own was made into a vessel.
She says that her role is to watch over humans in a way appropriate for a goddess, but that means to watch over while snickering.
"Well then, I wonder if humans will survive this, or will they be extinct?"
Truly, a (red) devil from Venus.
Her Sumerian divine name is Inanna, and this name is actually the older one. Ishtar is her Akkadian divine name.
A goddess of Venus, a goddess that rules over good harvests which brings prosperity to people and also a goddess that rules war and destruction. Having even dispatched a fearsome divine beast called “Bull of Heavens” to the city of Uruk; at any rate, goddess who is a nuisance to others.
Also famous for having numerous loves, it has been said that she would make advances with all her energies on those who she took a liking, regardless of those being humans or other deities.
On the other hand, she also displayed a demon-like cruelty towards those who did not bow to her will.
It has also been said that the reason why she brought that divine beast to the Earth was because the King of Heroes from Uruk, Gilgamesh, did not answer to her temptations.
Rank: A++ Type: Anti-Mountain
An Gal Tā Kigal Shē.
The most “devastating” and “brutal” deed that Ishtar carried out in Sumerian mythology—
The anecdote of trampling down and annihilating the Sacred Mountain Ebih (which even the king of gods feared and respected) “just because I didn’t like it”, turned into a Noble Phantasm.
According to Mesopotamian mythology, Ishtar forced her way into Mt. Ebih, increasing her divine might with each step, and in the end grabbed a hold of the mountain range’s summit and thrusted a spear on the central part of its leyline, causing the Ebih mountain range to collapse.
Based on such anecdote, she pulls off a deed that even God fears: upon employing the Noble Phantasm, she warps to Venus and takes possession of its concept by means of management rights, loading it and firing it from Maanna’s magazine as a conceptual planet.
Also called Jebel Hamrin Breaker.
Increase of attack power by adding her excessive magic energy to the weapon.
Originally, Ishtar’s divine power was free and unrestricted - mostly almighty. But, maybe as an influence of her possessed vessel, for some reason she is now unable to store her magic energy on anything other than jewels.
A powerful Prana Burst skill, but because the process of charging jewels before firing is necessary, it is quite hard to put it to good use.
Manifestation of Beauty: EX → B
The fearsome charismatic nature as a goddess of beauty.
A power to charm others. Despite of being in a condition of merely possessing another, it already surpasses the realm of men.
Originally it was supposed to be a composite skill (gauge absorption, curse, skill-sealing) that had a strong temptation effect at its core, but thanks to the strong inclination of the possessed human, the restriction effects towards others were removed and it essentially became a simple Charisma skill.
(Originally EX Rank, but it was reduced to B)
Her weapon-of-choice is the "Heavenly Boat Maanna", which is both an airship and a giant bow.
Maanna is the boat of god that soars across the Mesopotamian world, and also a interstellar teleportation gate (Gate). Because she is now a pseudo-Servant, the warp function is normally being sealed.
Ishtar can also use a spear, but this time she is sticking to act as an Archer.
Image-wise, it is like an invader that came in flying from Venus to attack the Earth. zing-zing.
In "Fate/GO", she has manifested as a Pseudo-Servant by possessing a human.
Since Ishtar is egoistical, she behaves while paying no regards to the possessed human, but her personality is receiving a great influence from that of the possessed human.
Ishtar is both compassionate and cruel, but because the possessed human’s personality is more virtuous, her cruelty has withdrawn deep down and her good side is coming more to the surface.
For Ishtar, the Master is "a human worth teasing".
Although she thinks of herself as being more eminent, since the personality of the possessed body is her base, she will never look down on humans.
She will come in contact with him in an affective and friendly manner, but just as "a toy worth teasing".
But as their bonds become deeper, her natural disposition to take care of people and emotional weakness (she ends up empathizing with him) work against her, and he changes from "a toy worth teasing" into "my precious contractor, whose future is worth watching over".
