Having trouble keeping up with all of Babylonia's Servants? I put together a guide here with some brief explanations of the history behind them and how Babylonia's portrayal stacks up to the real legend. It's surprisingly accurate most of the time (gender-bending aside), which is a nice touch in a mobile game storyline.
