The tricky thing with myths that old is there's so many tellings it's hard to keep straight. In some of the older versions it was an accidental killing, in some it wasn't even Medea that killed them, and in some she did it to spite Jason.

What I do find cool is how the idea of different versions of the stories have different effects on the servant summoned, like for Jack the Ripper being different people in different classes or Vlad III being viewed heroically by some and a monster by others.

Has TM ever established if in it's setting the christian God is just another god like there's dozens of running around as servants already, or is he somehow different?

I find it really funny that the "list of minor characters" on the type-moon wiki has Jesus, for some reason.

Actually Medea killing her children doesn't happen in every telling of her tale. It just so happens that the play written by Euripides in which she does so is famous one.


Not to mention the actual reasoning for the killing isn't the same, sometimes it's an accident, sometimes it's to spite Jason.

About the only thing He's been mentioned to do in the story is in FGO where He ordered Solomon to hide away one of his seven rings. Which does directly lead to Goetia being defeated.

i'm not sure if the church is elucidated on more in tsukihime but i have to imagine there's a reason they're as powerful as they are

I wonder if the fact that the christian God is still widely worshiped while the likes of Zeus, Odin or Quetz aren't has something to do with it.

That doesn’t happen in fate, orrr at all so maybe someone at deen was huffing markers

Maybe he's thinking of Saber? I think Caster abducts her at one point, it's been awhile.
