|~ Saber to Shirou Emiya|
Artoria Pendragon, also known as Saber, is one of the three heroines of the visual novel Fate/stay night and the anime series based off it. Specifically she's the main heroine and deuteragonist of the Fate route, the tritagonist of the Unlimited Blade Works route and a supporting protagonist-turned-antagonist of the Heaven's Feel route. She is the Servant of Shirou Emiya in the Fifth Holy Grail War. After becoming the Servant of Sakura Matou in the Heaven's Feel route, she is known as Saber Alter or Black Saber.

In the English dub of all other animated media, she is voiced by Kari Wahlgren, who also voices Celty Sturluson, Saya Otonashi and Sakura Kinomoto.
Saber is the focus of the Fate route, as well as playing a major role in Unlimited Blade Works. She is the Servant summoned by Shirou Emiya. Being a Saber class, she excels in many areas of fighting and has a very high magic resistance. Sabers are widely considered the best Servant class, but due to Shirou's shortcomings as a Master, she cannot reach her full potential. She has a hard time getting along with Shirou and clashes over his desire to protect her life over his own, but shares his dedication towards honorable and just ways of fighting.

He further explains that it is not a relationship fueled by instinct like the relationship between a man and a woman, but a romance of logic between two people who need each other from the heart. He thinks the Fate route could have been told as a story through the ancient Greek views on love.
