The world makes you an offer, and you either accept or refuse. Acceptance means you get a miracle right now, and when you die you become a counter guardian.
>what the purpose is
For one, you get a miracle (some truly impossible accomplishment) as the bargain. For two, you get to save humanity from destruction over and over after you die, at least on paper. (In actuality, you get to save humanity specifically by destroying anything that threatens it or anything that stands near something that threatens it without discrimination).
>>118495529 so, becoming a counter guardian, they just "guard" earth from destruction and they can do whatever it takes to stop it? the fact he was sent to F/SN means he's there to stop something right? in that case, what was it exactly? he did nothing
it sounds like becoming a counter guardian means the grail can choose you as a heroic spirit without becoming a legend
>>118495812 The grail summons a copy of the Hero from when they were the most powerful in their own lifetime
Counter Guardians are selected from the throne by the planet itself, and basically become "player characters" of the Earth's will, becoming as strong as necessary to stop whatever will lead to an absolute calamity
Like if, Archer was Superman when summoned by the grail he would be more like Superman Prime when summoned as a Counter Guardian
