The characters of ''Anime/FatePrototype'', [[WhatCouldHaveBeen the original concept of]] ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'':



!!Ayaka Sajyou
!!!Voiced by Creator/KanaHanazawa

The Seventh Master, with the title of Princes. The daughter of a magus, her father and older sister Manaka died in the previous Holy Grail War and she now lives by herself. Suffers from low self-esteem and low talent in her family's magic. Summons the Servant Saber after being attacked by Lancer.


* AnimalMotifs: Crows; in the OVA she's seen attacking with black feathers.

* BloodMagic: Her father had ordered her to sacrifice an animal each morning. Unable to do so, she uses her own blood as a substitute.
* CainAndAbel: The Abel.
* TheCameo: First appeared in a [[AllThereInTheManual material book]] known as "Character Material", and also made an appearance in a {{Yonkoma}} SpinOff called ''Fate/school life''
* {{Expy}}: Although she was replaced by Shirou, her backstory is more similar to Rin's (daughter an inheritor of Magus) and Sakura's (low self-esteem).
* FeatherMotif: Her crow feathers that she used for offensive spells, and that she bears a Command Seal that resembles a single feather.
* GreenThumb: Evidences some of this in the OVA.
* IJustWantToBeSpecial: She thinks that being average is a flaw.
* MagikarpPower: She is unskilled in her family's native magic, but on Saber's suggestion she tries Formalcraft (which she describes as "thaumaturgy for dummies"). She finds that she has a natural talent for it, though what exactly that entails is left unclear.
* {{Meganekko}}
** TheGlassesComeOff: It's clear this happens in the OVA.
* MinorLivingAlone: Since the rest of her family is dead, she lives by herself.
* ParentalAbandonment: Her father is dead [[spoiler: by the hands of her sister Manaka]], and her mother is completely unknown (but it's implied that she's dead too).

The Second Master, with the title of Cherubim. [[spoiler: She is under a curse that eventually takes her life.]] Her Servant is Lancer.
* BlackMagicianGirl[=/=]DarkActionGirl: Gives off these vibes.
* [[spoiler: {{Curse}}]]: Was a victim of one as a kid [[spoiler: which is said to come from her father, who casted it while daying ''"Die if you do not become a Master and get the Grail"''.]] [[spoiler: It actually wasn't her dad; he tried to undo the curse with no success, and then was killed by the real and currently unnamed culprit. Misaya later fell victim to it.]]
* DisappearedDad: Her father also was in the last Holy War, and died in it.
* {{Expy}}: The prototype of Rin Tohsaka - which makes it amusing that Rin was saved by her canon's Lancer.
* {{Hellhound}}: Her familiars are black dogs.
* PowerGivesYouWings: Seen with six wings in the OVA.
* SpeaksFluentAnimal: [[AllThereInTheManual According to the manual]].
* [[spoiler: YourDaysAreNumbered]]
* ZettaiRyouiki: Both in her normal clothes and her school uniform.

!!Sancraid Phahn
!!!Voiced by TakehitoKoyasu

The Absolute Void master, with the title of Absence. Supposedly a member of the Church's Assembly of the 8th Sacrement, he is in fact a member of an organization known as the [[TheKnightsTemplar Order of the Templars]] (presumably a splinter group) and is one of their top heretic hunters. His title comes from the fact that he's actually an anomaly in the Holy Grail War, being the eighth Master out of seven. His Servant is Berserker, [[spoiler: and he later steals Ayaka's Command Seal and gains control of Saber. Ayaka then teams up with Lancer, who has just lost his Master.]]
* ChurchMilitant: He's actually not part of the Church, but he still hunts "heretics".

!!Manaka Sajyou
!!!Voiced by Creator/AkiToyosaki

The First Master, with the title of Seraphim. The older sister of Ayaka, she had immense talent as a magus, and participated in the previous Holy Grail War eight years ago. Unfortunately, since she was connected to the Root since birth, she was also completely insane. Although she was killed by [[spoiler: her own Servant]] during the war, she was resurrected by the Grail. Her prior Servant was Saber, and her current Servant is the Beast.
* BigBad: Presumably.
* BlondesAreEvil
* BlueAndOrangeMorality: Manaka is not super spiteful, hateful or vengeful. She was and still is, well... just '''crazy'''! In example, she [[spoiler: killed her dad Hiroki as well as many local girls, and then got ready to sacrifice her "normal" and "worthless" little sister Ayaka]]... while smiling at them angelically, without any apparent ill will, and even telling Ayaka that she loved her.
* CainAndAbel: The Cain.
* CameBackWrong: The twist is that she was already wrong to begin with.
* ChildProdigy: Assuming she wasn't a homunculus or something similar. It's noted that she has an innate connection to [[AkashicRecords the Root]], and that she had few magic circuits in her but they were ''absolutely'' unrivaled in regards to quality.
* CombatTentacles: She can use [[spoiler: the contents of the Greater Grail]] that way.
* DoesNotLikeShoes: As seen in the image. Though some illustrations show her with cute pump shoes,
* ElegantGothicLolita: Her dress looks a LOT like a Sweet Lolita one.
* EnfantTerrible: She did all her horrible past deeds before turning 14.
* {{Expy}}: She was split into Ilya [[note]]younger than she looks, pale and cute but still dangerous and with a warped sense of affection[[/note]] and [[spoiler: Dark Sakura]] [[note]](connection to [[spoiler: the Grail]])[[/note]], and some parts of her backstory were incorporated into Kotomine[[note]](being revived [[spoiler: by the Grail]])[[/note]], [[KaranoKyoukai Ryougi Shiki]] and [[VisualNovel/TsukiHime Aoko Aozaki]] [[note]](innate connection to the Root and having few but super efficient circuits, respectively)[[/note]].
* FeminineWomenCanCook: Some time before the Grail War took place, the Sajyou mother either disappeared or died. From then on, the very girlish Manaka handled most of the housework; she's certainly seen [[ making breakfast]] in some illustrations.
* ForTheEvulz: This seems to be her motivation. Manaka's bored and tired of these stories about the Grail granting wishes, and none of them are actually super true anyway, so she desires to fulfill its actual purpose: raising the Beast! Oh, and she also [[LoveMakesYouEvil wants to give her beloved Saber his wish]].
* GigglingVillain
* [[spoiler: GoOutWithASmile: When Saber [[BodyguardBetrayal rebelled against Manaka's orders]] and stabbed her to death in the Fifth War, she couldn't properly process it, and thus died smiling sweetly at him.]]
* LadyAndKnight: She wants to be the Black Lady to Saber's KnightInShiningArmor. '''Badly'''.
* NightmareFetishist: What pre-teen/teen girl would describe her love for "her prince" to what she'd feel if her intestines were pulled out of her stomach?
* OlderThanTheyLook: She's six years older than Ayaka, but she still attains her appearance of a 14 year old since she died at that age.
* [[spoiler: PoweredByAForsakenChild: Sacrificed girls and her own father to the Holy Grail. She would have sacrificed Ayaka if Saber hadn't stopped her.]]
* [[spoiler: PsychicAssistedSuicide: Somehow she ''forced'' all these girls to throw themselves into the Grail.]]
* [[spoiler: SelfMadeOrphan: Killed her own father, as said above, and sacrificed him to the Grail.]]
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: [[AlternateCharacterReading Is it Manaka or Aika?]] Supplementary materials seem to go for the first.
* SpotOfTea: In the OVA, she and Saber are seen having tea and discussing strategies.
* WoundThatWillNotHeal: The one on her torso and back. Apparently, ''it still bleeds''.
* {{Yandere}}: For Saber.

!!!Voiced by Creator/MegumiOgata

The Third Master, with the Title of Thrones. Isemi is the youngest of the Masters, being just 10 years old. [[spoiler: He's already dead, having succumbed to experimentation and the strain of bringing Rider to this world. Rider's wish is to revive him.]]


* AscendedExtra: Was only mentioned in the author's notes of the novel, but was seen in the anime.
* [[spoiler: GoOutWithASmile: [[ As seen here]].]]
* IllBoy: [[spoiler: More exactly, [[PlayingwithSyringes the victim of a "chimerization" experiment]] coming after the Fifth War, apparently performed by having Manaka implant a "beast" in his body. By the time he fully summoned Rider, poor Isemi was kept alive solely by medical machinery ''and'' so weakened that he suffered pain from things as normal for us as breathing and his own heartbeat; and lasted only one week before he kicked it.]]
* NiceGuy: That's more or less how he won over Rider's trust and respect. [[spoiler: And maybe ''two'' Riders, if he ''is'' the gentle boy that Ramesses!Rider met in ''Fragments...''.]]
* NoNameGiven: In the OVA, but his name was revealed in the [[AllThereInTheManual fanbook]] and along with some hints in the Prequel's Special Act [[spoiler: where he's implied to have met the ''previous'' Rider.]]
* [[spoiler: PosthumousCharacter and TooGoodForThisSinfulEarth: The kid was ''that'' gentle and ''that'' doomed.]]
* WalkingSpoiler: And how.


!!Saber ([[spoiler:King Arthur]])
!!!Voiced by Creator/TakahiroSakurai

The Servant of Ayaka Sajyou. A heroic individual with a strong sense of justice. Has made it his mission to protect Ayaka. Was the Servant of Manaka Sajyou in the previous Holy Grail War.
* BadAss: Just like his original counterpart.
* [[spoiler: BodyguardBetrayal: When he realised Manaka's ''actual'' intentions in the former War, he killed her.]]
* DeclarationOfProtection: Not long after Ayaka summons him, he says he'll protect her.
* {{Expy}}: He's more like Shirou than his female counterpart - he notably ''smiles'' at Ayaka when he's first summoned, and says he's there to protect her.[[note]]Compare the female Saber, who stoically asks Shirou if he is her Master.[[/note]] He also has some traits in common with Archer and his relationship with Ayaka is even described as being similar to that of Rin and Archer - at least at first.
* TheHero
* RazorWind: Evidences some of this in the OVA.
* KnightInShiningArmor: Particularly for Ayaka.
* [[spoiler: SuperpoweredEvilSide: As some point he would be corrupted by Sancraid Phahn when he steals Ayaka's Command Seal, becoming the prototype to Saber Alter.]]

* BadAss: From what we´ve seen, he´s perfectly capable of kicking Saber´s ass.
* {{Expy}}:
** He's essentially a composite of ''two'' Archers from the final work: while he eventually mutated into [[spoiler:the Gilgamesh we all know and love]], he also has elements of the primary Archer, being a dual-wielder who makes an epic stand against Berserker.
** He also has a bit in common with ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'' Lancer, being a combat-lover and all.
* FriendlyEnemy[=/=]TheRival[=/=]WorthyOpponent: To Saber.
* HyperspaceArsenal: Bab-ilu: Key of the King's Law, allows him to access his endless treasury.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: While he´s still arrogant and possessive of Ayaka, he gives Saber an elixir that can cure any poison or disease so he can cure Ayaka and seems alot more sensible than his ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'' counterpart.
* LoveAtFirstSight: With Ayaka, he claims she's more beautiful than the women of his own kingdom. Unlike his ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'' counterpart, he doesn't act like Ayaka is a possession.
* TheNicknamer: Calls Saber "Holy Blade Wielder".
* ReadingsAreOffTheScale: His Noble Phantasm, [[TheGreatFlood Enki: Sword of the End]] is an EX-ranked Noble Phantasm capable of flooding the entire world.

The Servant of Misaya Reiroukan. Tracks down Ayaka at the beginning of the story, which causes her to summon Saber. [[spoiler: Eventually teams up with Ayaka when his Master dies and Saber is stolen from Ayaka.]]
* AnimalMotif: of a Hunting Dog much like his counterpart, but he is more closely to a Wolf (even wears a protective amulet in shape of a wolf's head with a crescent moon in its mouth).
* TheBeastmaster: He has excellent compatibility with the canine familiars that Misaya creates.

!!Rider ([[spoiler:Perseus]])
!!!Voiced by Creator/MamoruMiyano

* AntiVillain - LoveMakesYouEvil: Rider took a while to warm up to his kind and apparently unassuming Master Isemi, but ultimately came to care for him. Since [[spoiler: Isemi turned out to be TooGoodForThisSinfulEarth]], now he will do anything to [[spoiler: bring him BackFromTheDead.]]
* CoolMask
* {{Expy}}: [[spoiler: And now you know why ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'' Rider was Medusa.]] He also looks a bit like Shinji Matou.
* LivingWithTheVillain: He disguises himself as one of Ayaka's classmates.
* SummonMagic: [[spoiler: A {{Pegasus}}]]

!!The Beast [[spoiler:[[Literature/BookOfRevelation Of Revelation]]]]
The Servant of Manaka Sajyou. The embodiment of the sins and desires of humanity, it's materialization is apparently the true purpose of the Holy Grail.

* [[spoiler: NumberOfTheBeast]]


[[folder:Characters of ''Pale Silver Fragments'']]

!!Mr. Reiroukan (Misaya's dad) aka Master of [[spoiler: Caster]]



* ActionGirl
* BladeOnAStick: She utilizes a long and gigantic spear with a large blade reminiscent of a shield
* LongHairIsFeminine: She's said to be a woman with "a delicate body and long hair".
* [[ManOnFire Woman On Fire]]: She's able to wrap her body in fire



* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Their identity initially was [[spoiler: Tristan aka one of KingArthur's Knights of the Round Table]], but that was discarded.

!!Rider ([[spoiler: [[ Ramesses II]]]])

* AlternateHistory: [[spoiler: Moses was his best friend]].
* {{Badass}}: Though one could easily dismiss him for being overconfident based on his great ego, he is shown to be a ''supremely'' powerful Servant that not even Saber, empowered by Manaka, could ever hope to defeat.
* TheBeastMaster: He has a palace-like Reality Marble ''filled'' with Phantasmal Beasts of all kinds.
* BerserkButton: He flips his shit upon being summoned due to his catalyst being his wife [[spoiler: Nefertari]]'s necklace, which could have only been obtained by raiding her tomb.
* {{BFG}}: His Ramesseum Tentyris has the ability to utilize the [[ Dendera Light]] as a massive beam cannon capable of flattening cities.
* BreathWeapon: His Sphinx has this in the form of a '''[[PlayingWithFire fire]] [[BlowYouAway tornado]]'''.
* DramaPreservingHandicap: To even make it possible for Saber to defeat Rider, Manaka has his Master's entire clan murdered [[spoiler: with the help of Assassin's poison]]. Rider is still so invincible that [[spoiler: Saber has to resort to Excalibur, which can only be used against people stronger than the user. Ramesses II was genuinely so great that even King Arthur had to bow his head in humility to him to win.]]
* InvincibleVillain: Or InvincibleHero rather, given that Manaka is a VillainProtagonist. [[GenreSavvy Manaka]] holds Rider in such high regard that she believes not even the Three Knight Classes united could bring him down, but has [[{{Yandere}} faith that Saber will pull through regardless]].
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: If not outright JerkassFacade. He talks a big game and possesses a very high opinion of himself, but he forgives his Master for desecrating his wife's tomb, offers [[spoiler: the Isemi child a MercyKill]] if he should desire so and genuinely wishes to rule the modern world as to bring it into a new golden era. Not for nothing is the line "The Pharaoh's heart is as noble as the sun" used in his first POV sequence.
* LargeHam: He likes talking, that's for sure.
---> Rider: “Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha! Rejoice in it! Observe it! I will seek it! I have surely remembered your tenacity; there is nothing else in the world which hadn’t change since the world where I also ruled here! I want it! Because, I am the person that is destined to govern this world!”
---> Rider: “Anut and Set, it is good that you dwell in both of my arms! Astarte, wish me well so that the earth will be soaked in the blood of my battles after my glorious victory! I who am Horus and Ra will give happiness to the world when I get another life, from here on! O’ my beloved Nefertari, you will bless the call of Ozymandias as Hathor!”
* MagicKnight: He possesses an abnormal talent in the ways of Magecraft, being able to knock Misaya unconscious by just looking at her Familiar, and uses a crystal orb to view the battle between Saber and his Sphinx from afar. Additionally, he possesses a Reality Marble-like ability.
* MentalWorld: Possibly with Ramesseum Tentyris, which summons a massive amount of great Egyptian temples in a complex spanning miles from end to end. It is noted that many of the temples in it were not build in his lifetime, but as he is the King of Kings, the greatest king of Egypt, he naturally rules over the domain of lesser kings, including their temples.
* ThePowerOfTheSun: As "Ra's Mighty Truth", he possesses Ra's almighty solar barge as a Noble Phantasm. It can supposedly reduce all of Tokyo to dust in the span of a couple of hours.
* OddFriendship: Seems to have sort-of struck one [[spoiler: with a boy who is strongly implied to be the Isemi who would become the next Holy War's Master of Rider.]] At very least [[spoiler: the little boy managed to calm Rider down from his anger upon being summoned through Nefertari's necklace, and then he properly joined the Grail War.]]
* ReadingsAreOffTheScale: He possesses an EX-rank in the Noble Phantasm parameter.
* RedBaron: "King of Kings", a title historically attributed to Ozymandias[=/=][[spoiler: Ramesses II.]]

* WalkingShirtlessScene: [[ As seen here]].


!!Berserker ([[spoiler: [[ Dr. Henry Jekyll and Mr. Edward Hyde]] ]])

* [[spoiler: OurWerewolvesAreDifferent: As Hyde, Berserker an appearance similar to a werewolf with black fur covering his body, a large jaw, sharp fangs, and a beast-like, humanoid form. His eyes glow upon seeing the full moon.]]
* OlderThanTheyLook: He looks like a young man, but is said to be much older. [[spoiler: The real Dr. Henry Jekyll was said to be in his 50's, and yet this one looks in his 20's tops.]]
* SharpDressedMan
* PrettyBoy: [[ Indeed!]]
* [[spoiler: SplitPersonalityTakeover: His Noble Phantasm is the elixir that allows him to pull this.]]


!!Assassin ([[spoiler:Hassan of Serenity]])

* ActionGirl
* CoolMask
* [[spoiler: MasterOfDisguise - {{Shapeshifting}}]]: One of her abilities, which allows her to [[spoiler: masquerade as either a cute WomanInWhite or as [[CatsAreMagic Ayaka's black kitty]].]]
* PoisonIsEvil - PoisonousPerson: Her Noble Phantasm (named ''Zabaniya: Delusional Poison Body'') and main schtick, as her entire body is so toxic that touching it is an almost instant death to humans.
* {{Stripperiffic}}
* WomanInWhite: The time [[ she meets]] [[spoiler: Kitano]], she's wearing a white sundress.


!!Caster ([[spoiler:[[ Paracelsus]]]])
