|Background Info||A mage sent from the Mage's Association to fight the 5th War of the Holy Grail. She plays a major role in Fate/hollow ataraxia and is briefly mentioned during one of the scenarios in Fate/stay night, although she never makes a formal appearance in the latter. Bazett is fairly serious and hardworking and possesses a strong sense of justice. While she can be short-tempered yet calculating and presents herself as a strong-willed and mature woman, in truth she is actually rather lonely and kind. She is also very mature despite being only 23 years old. She is the Master of the Servant Avenger and also Lancer's true master.
Bazett was born in Ireland as a descendant of an old family of mages that had detached itself from the Mages' Association and lived in the shadows quietly. Her family belongs to a special category of sorcerers known as Traditional Carriers Ė Godís Holders, a specific breed of magicians that pass on their abilities through bloodline rather than teachings. Wishing to pursue a different path than that of her ancestors, she chose to join the Association. Despite Bazett's rare lineage, her skills were not judged as being particularly useful and she was dismissed. Instead, she employed her abilities to become a hunter of those that had been Designated to be Sealed.
During her missions, Bazett met Kirei Kotomine, a member of the Church. As she told him her story, she quickly came to trust him and was very happy when he invited her to become a Master in the 5th Holy Grail War. However, after she summoned the Servant, Lancer and prepared to join the War, she was betrayed by Kotomine, who stole Lancer's command spell and chopped off her left arm. Having only lived to fight for four days in the Grail War, Bazett was left to die. Bazett had always intended to summon Lancer for the 5th war. The reason behind her motive was her desire to save him since childhood. As a dispassionate and desolate child, Bazett found herself immersed with the story of Cķ Chulainn, finding herself grieving over such a tragedy that was his legend, at the same time, finding a purpose for herself. She strove to become a strong magus, gambling in the wild hopes of summoning him and using the Holy Grail as a means of "saving" him from his inevitable fate.
Bazett is a specialist in physical combat and employs runic sorcery to increase her fighting potential. The ultimate form of counterattack, an unavoidable strike carried out in response to an enemyís strongest ability. It both kills the enemy and nullifies their attack, creating a perfect balance between offensive and defensive capabilities. However, it far less convenient than how it may sound: It can only be used at full potential against an enemyís most powerful strike, otherwise its power is reduced to that of a mere Rank D weapon, only ten of these can be created per year by pouring Bazettís blood on them and letting them charge for a whole month (During Fate/hollow ataraxia she only has three shots remaining) but it is less effective against those with the ability to regenerate, such as Berserker, or Lancer's Gae Bolg - Impaling Barbed Death that pierces the targetís heart before the attack is even carried out. In the case of Berserker getting hit with Fragarach, he would lose one life unconditionally, seeing that God Hand is always active. In the case of Lancer's Gae Bolg, both Lancer and Bazett would be killed, as both attacks are unavoidable. As rare an occurrence as it may be, Fragarach is indeed a Noble Phantasm wielded by a living human. It is one of the few remaining relics not yet attached to a Heroic Spirit.
In the beginning of the story, Bazett wakes up without any memory as to what happened her to after she lost consciousness. Believing the 5th Holy Grail War is still being fought, she finds herself in the company of a new and unfamiliar Servant, Avenger. Lancer, the Servant she recalls summoning, is no where to be found. Together, the mismatched partners set off in the night to defeat their opponents and win the Grail. However, they find themselves in an unexplainable time loop that lasts four days, beginning on the fourth day of the current Grail War. Each time Bazett is killed or the fourth day ends, she awakes on the first day of the loop. Bazett eventually learns the truth: that the war has been over for half a year and that she was betrayed by Kirei Kotomine. As she lay dying, she heard a voice, the essence of the Holy Grail's power, giving her a second chance at life. The voice (Later revealed to be Avenger's) made a pact to continue the war so that she would not have to die. They became partners and the time loop resulted.
Realizing that they had to end to the loop, Bazett and Avenger come to realize each otherís wishes. Bazett knows that Avenger wishes to remain the artificial world created by their agreement and enjoy his own life as an actual person and not a Servant. However, Avenger believes it is more important for Bazett to live her life; in truth, when he first found her, she was still alive, albeit barely. Avenger had managed to keep her alive for half a year until a woman from the Church found her and nursed her back to health. With the courage to finally face reality, the two part ways. Bazett finally wakes up and the loop ends.
