The Modern Magus Magazine
I’d put some witty writing here, but I ran all my jokes short for the previous MMM. And besides, when you put “Miniature” in front of anything, people naturally take a drop in quality in their stride. Like with the Gameboy Micro, or uh, Mini Oreos.
We’re here to assess a welfare, since her data has been datamined and frankly I probably could’ve just waited a few days to post it all at once. Oh well, twice the MMM’s, double the imaginary internet points, am I right?
Despite all the speculation on seeing her outfit and NP, I’m afraid Elice isn’t an Izanami pseudo-Servant or anything so fancy. In fact, she apparently gets part of her abilities as a Servant literally from being a Chuuni. Even if she didn’t, anybody who calls themselves a “Shinigami” unironically deserves to be labelled one.
Ah right, and I’m aware some official material has her name written as “Erice” and so do most sources for her, but on the FGO stream both Kawasumi and Kanou pronounced her name with a pretty distinct “L”. And besides, Elice is an actual name. And also besides, following the official romanized names got us “Altria”. Yup, not using Erice.

Readers may be used to me pointing it out at this point, but Japanese Servant means? That’s right, poor bases. Unless you’re an Oni or Raikou, I guess.
At least she doesn’t have it as bad as Summer Kiyo - she’s seated roughly in the middle of the line for 4* Lancers, having tied 8th worst attack and 9th worst HP, as well as a number of Servants with just objectively better stats compared to her.
However, she does have a neat handful of passives to work in her favour. First is Magic Resistance (Spirit), which gives her a modest debuff resistance boost, which is further increased versus...Undead? While the Ereshkigal-ghost type enemies love to plaster you with debuffs, that probably won’t find an excessive sum of use.
The remainder are less interesting, but more useful - a modest Riding rank to boost her Quicks, Independent Action for extra critical damage, and weak Divinity. Everything adds up, I suppose.
So how good is Elice? On one hand, she’s the freshest thing on this side of the Sanzu:
On the other hand, she’s five fathoms deep at the riverbed and needs fishing out:
As unfortunate as it is for me to say, Elice isn’t that great by most welfare’s standards. She doesn’t have a completely dysfunctional kit or anything so drastic, but her peaks are pretty consistently matched by her competing welfare Lancers, at the same time the region where she may have possessed a niche is just entirely killed and shipped to the afterlife by her own inconsistency. Poor girl.
At least her final ascension art is pretty revealing right? Hmm? “Check her profile”, you say?
...oh, oh no. I need to get out before the FBI show up.
On May 29th, 2020. A SWAT raid was performed on the residence of one not-particularly famous miscellaneous FGO content writer, “Rathilal”, who hosted his content on Gamepress and frequently posted to Reddit.
Officers detained the individual, and on suspicion of further offences besides lewding the lolis, found a stash of merchandise relating to the game Fate/Grand Order, including numerous illustrations and figurines of scantily-clad, underraged girls. The suspect is on record to have exclaimed ‘She’s a thousand-year old Oni voiced by an adult, she’s legal, I swear!’ and ‘Why are you arresting me for that one, she has huge boobs! It doesn’t count!’
The prosecutor’s office is still waiting to press charges, however so far as this anonymous reporter is concerned, “Rathilal”’s image is forever tarnished. When pressed for a comment, the defendant said thusly:
“Why do all the lolis have the most suggestive final art?”
We cannot say, “Rathilal”. We cannot say.
