    He has roughly the same luck as Sakura: all bad.
    Berserker Medusa - from the part of het legend after she went mad and started eating people - would actually be pretty cool.

    Also Aoi is a fucking doormat. Seriously wtf. Bitch doesn't deserve Kariya, she can stay with her stupid dumb husband. Kariya also didn't deserve to have what happened to him happen.

    Fuck man.

    Kariya is the only person who realizes magic sucks, but doesn't have a way to solve his problems without resorting to using it.

    Aoi is a traditional japanese woman. It's quite depressing, true.

    Nope.

    She is a bad mother, and a bad wife for letting her husband walk all over her. She tries and fails.

    Hopefully since we succeeded Zouken we can give Sakura a good family. Or at least a Father that isn't dumb and a bad sense of character to the point of being criminal.

    Hey, Sakura gets an actual family member that both loves her and isn't likely to die off! Nice.

    Although why a Zouken-Kariya would enter the War at all, I'm not sure.

    Hey, you did this! Cool.

    So, we've got the Wyrm Who Walks who summoned...

    Oh boy. Heaven's feel Sakura, I assume?

    This is going to be interesting.

    If we are a Zoukens successor, I don't see how we made friends with Aoi and her kids. Sure, if Kariya for some reason was impotent and needed to adopt... Maybe.

    Since it was a flip between canon or worm...

    We could still have elements of canon's backstory? idk.

    [X] A year ago...

    "So, you would give yourself up to spare the girl," He laughed at you. The old man, that monster in the guise of a human, laughed. "You would return and suffer in her place?"

    His words were mocking, and yet... you had no choice.

    He had Sakura, he held all the cards.

    "Very well, in place of little Sakura here, you shall be the heir, Kariya," His eyes were pitiless, you realize. This was no boon. This was... this was a trap.

    He had likely approached that fool Tohsaka for an heir, just to bait you... to get YOU here begging for everything you had rejected.

    And yet, there was no other path, you had no regrets.

    If this was to save Aoi's daughter, Sakura... you would do it.

    "You will regret coming back, but I think less than Sakura here would," He cackled once more. "You will suffer. And in the end, you will die for the legacy of the Matou. But Sakura will not go back to the Tohsaka."

    "What? But..." You glared at him.

    "If she does, it will be by YOUR will and not mine," That old monster smiled, a tight widening of lips. So, that was game. You would be the next head of the Matou. There was no escape. "But I am not unmoved by your words."

    You looked at him uncertainly as he continued to sit in that chair, a hand on Sakura's head.

    "I will no longer dye her in the colors of the Matou magic. But in exchange, once you have succeeded me, you will uphold the pride of the Matou as a true magus."

    And with that, the agreement was sealed as you pledged yourself to your father.

    And he brought you once more into that crypt.

    That place of darkness, moist and earthy, buried in the depths beneath the Matou mansion.

    You had been down here once before... and you had suffered as your circuits had been aligned to that of the Crest Worms.

    The soft green luminous glow from soft glittering lamps that moved in the shifting darkness. Darkness and green filled your world.

    This was no glamorous moonlit world.

    This was slick, moist and squirming darkness, where things were consumed by worms.

    Like you.

    The process had been filled with pain as the worms within your body were revitalized by prana, and the introduction of new worms into your bloodstream. Into your soul as they consumed parts of it and filled the holes with their forms.

    Burrowed into your mind and you were... are... will be...

    Matou Kariya.

    Makiri Zolgen.

    Matou Zouken.

    And as your father dies.

    You can feel him in the back of your mind.

    Countless voices, of all the dead Matou, of all the dead Zolgens... of those who had held the worms within them, who had wielded the thaumaturgy of your line.

    You were one with them. And they were you.

    You are.

    You are.

    You are.

    You and your father/son had entered the catacombs together.

    You walked out.

    More than human.

    Less than human.

    You are Matou Kariya, Magus. And you had a duty to your line. A duty to your adopted daughter, Sakura.

    You ache for a woman you can never have. Aoi. Justeaze.

    You also had a grail war to win, you mused as you looked at the crimson command spells inscripted upon your hand.

    - - - ​

    [X] The First Night of the Forth Holy Grail War

    As the brilliant flare of the summoning and the strong wind from the summoning died down, you can see endless shadows within the summoning circle.

    The ritual had summoned something, you can feel it.

    That was when she rose from the fog of the prana given solid form.

    You are not unfamiliar with the female form, as Kariya, as Zouken, as the countless dead that rested within your mind. Both male and female magus had been in the Matou and Zolgen lines...

    Your first impression of the Heroic Spirit summoned was... female.

    Lush and generous. Without a shred of clothes or armor or anything to denote who or what she was.

    Curves that shifted in a pleasing manner as she rose from where she lay on the ground with a yawn. Rising to all fours before standing up.

    Purple hair as of the hue of plums flowed like a river down her back, before being blowing back and away from you. Familiar purple eyes grew crimson, and her hair changed... paled to immaculate white.

    Darkness beyond comprehension crawled up her body from her feet to form a body suit. Ribbons edged with crimson. Exploded from her back to wrap her arms and formed sleeves with cruel looking claws.

    The female, you knew her... her essence sang to you. The command of her magic, the mysteries that she bore.

    This...

    This.

    This was a Matou. But there had been none old enough to possibly be a Heroic Spirit.

    She looked at you, and smiled at your shocked expression.

    "I ask of you, are you my master?"

    [X] What is your name and class, Servant?

    Rejoice, pipe, clearly Wrym has less issues than the insane prodigal child. Gonna need a core of steel if we want to keep Aoi happy - oh who the hell am I kidding, Tokiomi is going to be worm fertilizer if he is defeated.

    Ended up being a mix of both in the end. Or was this what was planned for Wyrm in the first place?
    I would think that each of them had different back stories or something.
    Then again, if the roll went the other way, I don't see how the Wyrm half would have worked.

    [X] Yes. Now, what is your desire for the Grail?

    I believe a more accurate saying for Kariya is...

    Hive Mind as captained by the current head of the Matous, in this case Kariya... :3

    So, Heaven's Feel Sakura that didn't get saved? Man, she needs a hug. I wonder what her reaction is going to be to meeting with a Sakura that was saved from the worms and has a father who cares.

    No it's the obsessive lusting over another man's wife and family and everything that happens after he takes the sacrifice to save some one who would have never been in danger if he'd took it like a first son gained strength then decided the path he wanted for the family instead of bolting and leaving zouken in need of another young shmuck.
