*Runs away from Raitei taking Sakura, Rider and Caster with him*
Wait just one minute, you can have Caster, but DAMMIT I GET RIDER AND SAKURA!(They come as a pair, you know)
Fuck that, he can't have my Caster.

The reason why Saber (Arturia Pendragon) is so attractive?
1. Super cuteness
2. Tsundere (yes, she is definitely a tsundere)
3. Loyal but yet have a very soft side to her personality. Understanding and considerate to others' feelings
*sigh, my only salvation is if there is such a girl in real life?

For the most part I feel she's an emotionally stunted straight man who occasionally throws off her cloyingly virginal facade for a round or two of cock sucking. Her "personality" is just so stilted and stunted that I cant feel any empathy for her at all (I thought her character was better realised in the anime where I sort of cared what happened). In my opinion she works best in the UBW path where she generally fades into the background but comes to the fore for comic relief and ass kicking.
Oolinthu wrote:Not stunted or stilted. The word you're looking for is subtle. Saber actually has a very complete and well-rounded personality. She experiences a full range of emotions - love, happiness, sorrow, guilt, regret, frustration, anger, vexation, contempt, embarrassment, sympathy, among others. It's just that she has a reserved personality and has led a life that required her to suppress her feelings. This often causes her to express them differently than, say, Rin, who is essentially an open book and has body language and facial expressions to go with every feeling or mindset as it strikes her (that's not to detract from Rin, however - I think this is part of what makes her character is so well-designed).
The appeal of Saber, for me, at least, stems from this - her characterization as a 'knight', the conflict of values between her feelings, goals, duties, and ideals, and her struggle to protect what's important to her. In terms of persona, she's also dependable, loyal, strong-willed, and very likable. Her character is also very consistent, as opposed to Sakura, who more or less behaves however the story requires her to, vacillating between remorseless cruelty, guilt-ridden self-loathing, and other polar opposites, sometimes within the space of a few minutes.
