Santa Alter. Because Ho Ho Ho.
The Fate / Grand Order Christmas Event had a special bonus, you unlock Santa Alter, a reformed, holiday themed version of the iconic evil Saber. This is widely regarded as a Christmas present for the poor suckers (yours truly included) who have not been fortunate enough to roll a version of Saber from the Gatcha. I actually have Saber Lily from the Pre-registration code, but it's just not the same.
So anyway, Santa Alter. Her backstory is that the evil Saber Alter began to regret her heinous deeds, and decided to become the Ally of Children Everywhere...Santa Claus. She then moved to Finland and began constructing presents, a costume, and a sleigh. It's pretty darn funny. The sleigh, which she made herself, and named 'Llamrei II' is said to resemble nothing so much as a Hippopotamus. She hums Jingle Bells while killing enemies. She is upgraded by feeding her chicken buckets...because...Saber.
My wife and I are currently in the process of constructing the definitive LEGO version of Santa Alter. Because it's what we do. Expect updates. Holy Crap, look how many labels apply for this!
