|───An emperor (tsar) of Russia and a dreadful (terrible) monster.|
In addition, a man who man transformed into a figure that is much like a magical beast and became an existence closer to a god in the Lostbelt.
Such is Ivan the Terrible.
|Height & Weight||531 cm ・ 2548 kg|
※ The height and weight from when he is fused with the mountain-type demonic beast is unknown.
|Alignment||Lawful Evil / Chaotic Evil|
|Origin||Historical Facts and Rumors||Region||Russia|
|Comment||He can be allotted to both the the Lawful and the Chaotic alignments.|
The Saint Graph registered with Chaldea is the Lawful one.
|As expected of the one regarded as the worst tyrant of Russia, his sternness and brutality are unprecedented. One the other hand, he was also a believer who was nothing but devout towards God. Such an excessively conflicting dual nature would never be tolerated on a decent human being, so it is probably a privilege permitted only for an emperor who possessed absolute authority.|
Although he understand his present circumstances by means of modern knowledge, an ordinary person would probably faint just by laying eyes on this Servant. This is not only because his figure is that of a monster, but also due to the power that he possesses being too much overwhelming.
As the Emperor of Russia, Ivan the Terrible had both established a centralized authoritarian government and imposed politics of fear. He would spend the mornings regretting his sins while secluded in a church, just to gleefully torture rebels during the afternoons. The mentality that seems to have perfectly assimilated both a saint and a scoundrel randomly changes between two types of alignments. That is, Lawful and Chaotic.
Despite being just a person, he self-proclaimed to be an existence equivalent to ｢God｣ and reached the summit of authority by driving away the nobles who boasted of power in the past. Russia revered him as an absolute emperor, while the people of Western Europe called him ｢dreadful (terrible)｣ in fear. In the Permafrost Empire, he became (was reduced to) a monster worthy of ruling over the Russian Lostbelt, by fusing with the strongest magical beast available at the time.
The right of absolute obedience that Ivan the Terrible demanded in order to rule over the opposing nobility. The intense intimidating air towards the surrounding people brings about a severe “heavy pressure” effect that lowers the rank of all abilities. Ordinary humans would find difficult to even look at him. It is possible to negate this by means of Charisma of B Rank or above.

|Black hound corps. A Noble Phantasm that transformed the ｢elite guards (Oprichnik)｣ that Ivan the Terrible introduced along with the Emergency Powers. Possessing the authority to perform things such as seizing the assets, estates from all nobles, the Oprichnik were an existence described as the hands and feet of Ivan the Terrible. Clad in black clothes and riding black-haired horses with black harnesses, they tied dog heads around the necks of their horses. At the same time, they possessed whips of animal hair knitted in a broom shape, and supposedly those were given with the nuance of "swooping down on traitors like dogs and sweep them out with brooms". A community that once lived under the same roof, even eating and sleeping together, but they no longer exist in this world. They only creep inside the dreams of the Magical Beast Thunder Emperor Ivan. An automatic defence, suppression Noble Phantasm that is activated when Ivan falls into sleep. An infinite number of soldiers immediately scatters and runs about to exterminate enemy forces that do him wrong. Overwhelming in terms of group violence, the only saving grace is that they are individually weak. Still, in the vicinity of the capital Moscow, each and every single one of them has a power close to low ranking Servants.|

|A cross procession of divine beasts. A march towards the heavenly country which the Emperor will eventually arrive at (or so it is believed). In other words, to stand in his way is a rebellion against the Emperor and, consequentially, a blasphemy towards God. Ivan the Terrible temporarily regains the giant beast state of bygone days and mercilessly pulverizes the enemy.|
|The emperor who reigned over the Permafrost Empire, Anastasia ― a “possible” Russia that was pruned as ｢something unnecessary, an unnecessary fluctuation (if)｣ during the process of reaching the present human history and discarded even from the parallel universes theory by ｢having its history discontinued, since anything beyond this would lead to an impasse (dead end)｣. Such is Ivan the Terrible. The one resurrected as a Servant is indeed that Ivan the Terrible, but he exists here as the world's first yaga from that Lostbelt's history. Those who inhabited his empire were all yagas, since it was already impossible to survive that harsh environment while remaining a human.|
Yet, something important that had been acquired back when they were still humans was lost in the process.
|While the Ivan the Terrible of the Pan-Human History was indeed a tyrant, he was an existence without any connections with magecraft. In the Lostbelt however, he invited the magi when the crisis of global freezing became imminent. He sought the path for survival that came with the techniques for fusing humans with magical beasts.|
However, that was the same as bringing to this world lifeforms that were completely different from humans already. So, when even their mentality ended up changing in the end, they were perceived as a human history that had reached an impasse─── a world that had to be pruned.
His lamentations never-ending, the Terrible continues his pilgrimage even while grieving.
