The Medusa was always considered to be a beautiful by some, at least before she was made to match her inner ugliness on the outside.

This is nothing new. No one but a sacrilegious monster would fornicate in the temple of a Goddess of purity, and with another god no less.

Fair though she may be in appearance, a Gorgon is still a Gorgon.

Off with her head.

>> No.2349359

I don't think so, Since if we relate her to the mythology she was based at, She may have done the same thing as what Caster did to her original master.

Not unthinkable at all.
She didn't wish the grail, and was never feeling pressured enough in order to disobey and forcing her aster to use command spells.

The Matou family are all strong magic-users, I am sure that Sakura knew how to use charismatic influence in order to ensure Rider's loyalty.

Well, I would've made Shinji an example if there was a scene of Rider protecting him with her life, Nevertheless, I rest my case.

She was summoned as a 'human', not in her Gorgon form.
And she was summoned without a catalyst due to being Similar to Sakura (aka, vivtim to external circumstances yadda yadda), so Sakura didn't really have to do anything.

Rider is a perfectly upstanding young woman.

>> No.2349447

It's Nasuverse.
She had the power to petrify and divinity BEFORE turning into a monster.
When the gods made humans attack her and she protected her sisters , the image the people had changed, and THEN she turned into a monster.
And she started a downward spiral, where she started eating humans...

Yes, I'm sure Athena would agree with you.

She was so perfect and upstanding that she was beheaded by a legendary hero for slaying and eating innocent humans.

Did you fools really believe that, upon running into a Gorgon, that the two of you would exchange pleasantries and chat for a while about the news and the current affairs in themedia?
That she would have asked you how your parents were, and laughed amiably when you commented on the weather?

They all conclude with one thing though, and Nasuverse+Greek Mythology of all sorts agrees upon the fact that Gorgons consume human flesh and enjoy it.

She seems less monstrous and more tragic in the Nasuverse version. Were Rider based wholly on Greek mythology, no one would defend her.

But since the Nasuverse took heavy creative liberties with mythology.....

Apparently, They were idiots who didn't know how to use strategy, They gamble despite having the abysmal chance of winning, If they used their brains, They would've upped the ante a bit, On the other hand, It's all up to the Greek Historians as to who are the winners and who are the losers when it comes to their mythologies, And sadly, Medusa happens to be in the losing side.
