The summer form of the Goddess of Venus, Ishtar. After witnessing the enthusiasm of people during summer festivals and being moved by the peoples' devotion, she decided to host a great event of her own. She is truly a goddess among goddesses. Riding Maanna, the Boat of Heaven, which has been modified to look more modern, she is a kung fu goddess who nimbly and acrobatically darts around.
"Is everyone having fun!? Everything awesome!?
Yep, yep! Good, good!
Keep trying until you reach your limit!"
As you can see, she is quite friendly and so very generous. She is truly a benevolent goddess who blesses all in attendance of her event.
Behind that smile, what's REALLY going on in that head of hers?
Origin: Ancient Mesopotamian Mythology
Alignment: Lawful Good
As usual, she's a goddess who floats around, never planting her feet firmly on the ground. Apparently, she's wearing a high-cut white swimsuit under that hoodie.
Ishtar is carefree yet elegant, bold yet cruel. But since she's dressed in modern clothes, her grandeur and terrifying divine aura have been somewhat…diminished. Her cheerfulness and generous nature have increased more than usual, and she's now more friendly.
Mastering a bit of martial arts here and there is just the sort of thing a goddess would do… Which is, of course, utter nonsense.
The only reason Ishtar knows kung fu is because the body of the vessel she inhabits trained extensively in both magecraft and martial arts.
This time around, Ishtar fights using a smattering of kung fu moves her vessel learned.
"Uruk Arts! That is not a thing."
…was the comment from the King while sunbathing atop the ziggurat.

Venus's Rainbow where the Divine Mountain Rotates around the Heavens.
As Maanna has turned into a much more modern mode of transport, its True Name has also been changed to sound modern.
A move that lets one enjoy summer with full force.
A rainbow Noble Phantasm that showers the earth after Ishtar rides her Maanna scooter around the world to visit various tourist spots and gets in a cheerful mood. Her happiness is converted to magical energy, which gets dispersed across the land.
Her costume change is also beautiful, and the magical energy that turns into shining stars is scattered around the earth to damage enemies.
Ishtar herself is feeling both overjoyed and fabulous, but the surface world is really getting shafted.
Ishtar's ability to ride Maanna, the Boat of Heaven, makes her Riding skill completely different from anything a human might have.
Of course, different doesn't necessarily mean better… It's just astonishing in so many ways. Not caring the least bit about traveling through space and time is just Uruk-style driving.
Shining Water Robe: A
A skill that changes her great crown into a swimsuit.
The great crown was intended only for Ishtar, but everyone in the party gets one. In exchange, its strength is reduced.
Summer Breaker!: A
A goddess who destroys summer (in more ways than one).
A downer version of the skill Goddess Morph.
Archer Ishtar took off the stem portion of her Boat of Heaven to use it as an arrow. But this time around, she uses the Boat of Heaven's paddle to change it into a scooter and ride around on it. While it looks like a modern scooter, it performs like the vehicle of a proper goddess. It can fly and it can even warp.
Clear Death Jail Summer Escape
There's an odd, mysterious creature moving around at Ishtar's feet, but whatever it is, she's not telling.
While she considers Master to be a hero of great potential since they saved Uruk, she is also very confused about how such an ordinary-looking person could be a hero. She thinks Master is a very, very strange human.
This time around, Ishtar took Master's popularity (as a person trusted by the other Servants) into consideration and hired them as a staff member for her Ishtar Cup race…
Doesn't she know when to give up?
The summer festival, Ishtar cup.
It was actually a grand ritual meant to revive Ishtar's familiar, the Bull of Heaven, Gugalanna.
She lost Gugalanna the day the Mesopotamian world was struck by a great calamity, and her reputation was horribly tarnished by her mistake.
She must have vigilantly been waiting for an opportunity to redeem herself.
And finally, an opportunity presented itself. Honestly, doesn't she know when to give up?
Ishtar secretly "borrowed" precious ritual tools from Babylon's storehouse, and converted them into Holy Grails. With those powers, she set up an overlay of Venus across the land of Connacht and had powerful Heroic Spirits offer their power to the great land (read: race) so that Gugalanna could be created once again. Or at least that was the plan.
That was why the Shrine of Ishtar was converted into a giant magical energy resource integrated circuit. The Ishtar QPS (Quantum Piece System) would suck up magical energy from humans and even from Heroic Spirits and make it all its own…which mdae it the collection device from hell. The more QP it stored, the more Ishtar's rank of Divinity would go up. A truly wicked scheme.

Ishtar, Goddess of Venus, in summer garb.
A summer festival is a state of popular frenzy......
Truly a goddess-like goddess, she organized a grand event after being moved by the people's piety.
She's also a kungfu-style goddess who moves her body nimbly and thrillingly, and burns rubber on her modernized Heavenly Boat Maanna.
"Is everyone having fun!? Best time ever?
Great, splendid, splendid!
Keep going, reach those limits!"
Truly a goddess among goddesses who graciously and generously blesses all those gathered at the venue.
What is that smile really hiding?

As always, a goddess whose feet don't quite touch the ground. The hoodie apparently covers a white high-leg swimsuit.
Goddess Ishtar is a free sprit, elegant, audacious, and rather cruel. Yet the present-day outfit mitigates slightly her divine nobility and terrifyingness. Merrier and more magnanimous than usual, she's friendly.
Anyone who calls herself a goddess is expected to have mastered one or two martial arts...... is obviously not a thing.
The reason Ishtar can move so adroitly is that the body she occupied was quite adept at both magic and martial arts.
Her current fighting style is her own unique spin on the kungfu learnt by the body.
"An Uruk Art! Is there such a thing?"
Thus comments the king sun-bathing atop the Ziggurat.

An Gal Tā ・ Seven Colors
As Maanna has become a present-day vehicle, the True Name has similarly been converted to a present-day format.
She's set to enjoy summer to the fullest with all that she can muster.
This iridian Noble Phantasm allows Ishtar to raise her spirits by going sightseeing at resorts all over the world on her Maanna Scooter, convert those happy feelings into magical energy, and let it rain down on the earth.
Her seasonal outfit easy on the eye, the magical energy pouring down on the earth turns into glittering stars that damage enemies.
Ishtar herself feels all happy and fabulous, but it really is a great nuisance to the earth below.
Ishtar, who manages the Heavenly Boat Maanna, possesses a riding skill that is on a different level and of a different order from that of humans.
Of course, "different order" doesn't mean she is "more skillful or faster" than humans. In any case, she's "amazing in all kinds of ways." She does the Uruku drive without much regard for time and space.
○Shining Water Robe: A
A skill that changes the Brilliant Crown for a swimsuit.
While the Brilliant Crown only affects Ishtar herself, this one benefits the whole party. In exchange, the output is lower.
○Summer Breaker!: A
This goddess breaks summer (in more ways than one).
A downgraded version of "Goddess Morph."
The bow used by Ishtar in her Archer form is the detached prow of the Heavenly Boat Maanna, but this time she has transformed the "oars" of the Heavenly Boat into a scooter that she rides. The scooter has the exact appearance of a modern-day scooter, but its abilities are naturally goddess-tier. It flies high and it goes to warp. There's a mysterious creature fidgeting about around Ishtar's ankles, but she consistently declines to comment on it.
Although Ishtar takes an interest in her Master for being a hero with a promising future, she says she's sometimes puzzled, wondering "How come such an average J turned out a hero?" She thinks of her Master as a curious human.
It's because she appreciates her Master's popularity (having the trust of other Servants) that she hires him/her as a staff member for the current Ishtar Cup, but......?
