Stheno saved my life!
After the tutorial summon, she is my first SR. I’ll always remember her summon because she came in the same roll as her twin and I always found that cool.
Who was the first Assassin to help Kojirou slay dragons? Stheno
“But Stheno, you can’t charm dragons.”
“Silly master. Brute force can be part of my charm.”
Who decided to take on servants just to charm them? Stheno
“But Stheno, your NP can’t kill.”
“Silly master. I said I’d fight for you. But I only kill for me.”
Who fights for Mata Hari to be on charm team compositions? Stheno
“But Mata Hari’s stats are too weak.”
“Silly master. Her stats don’t matter if the enemy is paralyzed by lust.”
Who is one of three servants that gets to sit on Heracles shoulders into battle? Stheno
“But… that’s my seat.”
“Silly master. It’s always been my seat. You’re just the seat warmer.”
From start to finish, she’s always been a help for me in Part 1. I’m glad I’m finding even more use for her with Part 2. I do regret that her skill levels don’t show the amount of affection I have for her (she sits at a 6 across all skills and at bond 6. And will probably remain at that skill level for a while). But Stheno is one of the servants who I knew nothing about prior to FGO and by the end of part 1 have a lot of loyalty towards her. She spooked me once and while I wasn’t thrilled by her spook, there was no doubt that I would make her NP2.
Unfortunately she likes my tears so I always have to be on guard and never forget about her when rolling or else she will appear (“Silly master. You must never forget your goddesses. This is just education and your SQ is the price of my tutelage.”).
Cheers to the goddess who we love to hate, who loves our hate and who some of us just love.
