During the Fate/Grand Order 8th Anniversary Festival 2023 live stream, a segment was dedicated to the upcoming Omega Force-developed action JRPG Fate/Samurai Remnant, where staff comments and gameplay were shared.
However, two new characters were introduced: Tamamo Aria, voiced by Chiwa Saitô, and Cú Chulainn, voiced by Nobutoshi Canna. The latter should be incredibly familiar to those familiar with the more popular Fate projects, while this is certainly a unique take on Tamamo.
According to Famitsu, these two characters are known as Deviant or Stray Servants, essentially those who aren’t assigned to any factions. By forming friendships with the Deviant Servants, some will accompany you into battle instead of Saber and support you in combat.
The exact terminology here may differ with the official Koei Tecmo localization.
