Mage's Association

    Rohngall 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rohngall.PNG
A professor who was sent to observe Snowfield with Faldeus.
  • Actually a Doombot: Faldeus betrays and snipes him, only for it to be a puppet body. Faldeus knew this and wanted him to send a message to the Clock Tower that the Snowfield Holy Grail War had begun.
  • Graceful Loser: While he is a traditional magus, he begrudgingly admits science surpasses magecraft in some areas. He uses binoculars and admits they are superior to using a Familiar as a scout.
  • Marionette Master: Can create and control puppets with magecraft.
  • Remote Body: Often uses their puppets this way.

     Lord El-Melloi II (Waver Velvet) 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/waver.png
Voiced by: Daisuke Namikawa (Japanese)
A professor and one of the twelve Lords of the Clock Tower. Flatt Escardos is one of his students.
  • Anger Born of Worry: This seems to be his usual attitude toward Flat. Whenever the kid does something stupid, El-Melloi II is furious, but it's entirely because he wants Flat to be safe.
  • Aw, Look! They Really Do Love Each Other: Flat may annoy the hell out of him, but El-Melloi II was nonetheless about to let Flat use the scrap of Iskandar's mantle as his summoning catalyst before Flat ran off to America with the fake knife. The moment he manages to make contact with Flat, he launches into a two-hour long tirade berating his student for doing something as absolutely, mind-numbingly stupid as joining the Holy Grail War. At the end, he pauses for breath and asks to talk to his Servant, politely requesting them to keep Flat safe.
  • Big Good: Serves as this, as he is one of the Clock Tower's more politically powerful figures and the only one who gives a damn about the moral consequences of the False Grail War.
  • Blank White Eyes: A feature of the terrifying enraged faces he tends to make at Flat in the manga.
  • Clarke's Third Law: One of the reasons El-Melloi II has managed to become a well-respected mage despite being flat-out terrible at magic is that, because mage society is so insular and technophobic, many other magi assume that his above average competence with computers and smartphones is literal magecraft.
  • Cloud Cuckoolanders Minder: Has been assigned as Flat's teacher primarily because no one else wanted to deal with him.
  • Everyone Calls Him "Barkeep": The title of Lord El-Melloi II has officially taken the place of his real name. El Melloi II even goes as far as to introduce himself as someone who used to be named Waver Velvet.
  • Hero of Another Story: Lord El-Melloi II is one of the most recurring characters of the Nasuverse and serves as a protagonist in both Fate/Zero and Lord El-Melloi II Case Files, and a Pseudo-Servant in Fate/Grand Order, as well as The Cameo in the anime version of Fate/Apocrypha. Flat even likes to refer to his past cases with convoluted Light Novel titles he made up himself as if El-Melloi II were literally the protagonist of a mystery book series.
  • Hot Teacher: "Professor Charisma" is apparently very popular with his female students; they even voted him the number one man they'd like to sleep with.
  • Humble Hero: He is outright annoyed with the prestige and popularity he has gained as Lord El-Melloi II.
  • Hyper-Awareness: He is generally a lot more perceptive and observant than most magi. He even immediately deduced that Flat was using magecraft to fake smiles because the associated muscle groups moved in the wrong order.
  • I Have Many Names: Has a tendency to pick up nicknames, the sillier of them (such as Big Ben London Star) started by Flat.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He may be a sour, irritable man, but El-Melloi II is a rare man with a conscience in what is basically a society of sociopaths and one of the few professors of the Clock Tower who actually care about their students as people. He even saved Flat from crossing the Despair Event Horizon because of his steadfast refusal to give up on him where every professor before him had.
  • Kingmaker Scenario: He is not a strong magus, but has an amazing ability to improve other magi. Many of his students have jumped up in magus ranking, something almost unheard of in an age of decaying magic.
  • Living Emotional Crutch: Volume 4 reveals he's one keeping Flat stable mentally and emotionally. Heck, it's more than just a crutch-thing, it's a map and compass too.
  • Locked Out of the Loop: Hishiri and Goredolf are keeping him in house arrest by Reines' request so that he doesn't learn that his entire class are taking part in the Holy Grail War as Hippolyta's Master.
  • Morality Chain: Flat admits in Volume 4 that what moral compass he has was basically lifted wholesale from El-Melloi II. Rather than doing something heroically selfless because he feels it's the right thing to do, Flat does it because it's something El-Melloi II would, and going against that would be a complete betrayal of his professor's trust.
  • The Mourning After: Even over a decade after the fact, El-Melloi II is still very much not over losing Iskandar.
  • Oblivious to His Own Description: When he's discussing the different factions joining the War, he mentions that at least one is "looking down" upon it, treating it like a game or a show. It takes him until someone mentions his foresight in sending one of his students to participate that he realizes it's his own student.
  • Oh, Crap!:
    • Rohngall and his apprentice visit him to get his honest opinion on the War. After a bit of exposition, the apprentice notes how impressive it was that El-Melloi managed to send one of his students to participate. He stops for a second until he realizes they're talking about Flat. Subverted that the student they thought they saw was actually Ayaka Sajyou, but it was subverted yet again since it was a different Ayaka Sajyou who just looks like her and has the same name.
    • When he finds out that Gilgamesh is in the same Holy Grail War as Flat, recalling his own near-death experience with the King of Heroes.
  • Only Sane Man: Apart from being Flat's straight man, El-Melloi II is one of the few magi who bother to keep up with mundane technology and is quite annoyed at being surrounded by a bunch of clueless luddites.
  • Parental Substitute: As Flat was sent to the Clock Tower as a socially acceptable way for his parents to abandon him, El-Melloi II is effectively his legal guardian on top of being his teacher.
  • Precision F-Strike: Whenever something goes really, really wrong. Unsurprisingly, Flat is often behind this, whether it's spying on a high-level Clock Tower assembly by hacking into the protective bounded fields or running off to Snowfield to join the Holy Grail War.
  • Weak, but Skilled: Has very little magical talent, and instead got where he is thanks to observational skills and outside the box thinking that made him an amazing coach for budding magi.

The Church

    Delmio Cervantes 
A priest stationed in Las Vegas. The foster father of Hansa.

    Hansa Cervantes 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/hansa_9.png
He kicks ass for the Lord.

An Executor of the Holy Church. While the Church was not invited to oversee the False Holy Grail War, they sent a priest anyways.


  • Badass Preacher: He's a member of the Catholic Church's Executor Squad.
  • Berserk Button: The Burial Agency, for which he has a great deal of respect. When Jester stated that he thinks that someone of his caliber is part of the Burial Agency, he suddenly snaps and becomes incredibly angry, claiming that the members of the Agency are all so far above him, that even the idea of him being able to compare with them is a huge insult.
  • Cyborg: Although it's not obvious, most of his body has been cybernetically enhanced. When confronting Karture, he states that around seventy percent of his body is actually sanctified robotics specializing in combat against Dead Apostles.
  • Dashing Hispanic: He's described as giving the impression of being a Spanish film actor instead of a priest.
  • Doomed Hometown: Hansa came from a small village in Spain that was devastated by Dead Apostles.
  • Eyepatch of Power: Has one over his right eye.
  • The Gadfly: Hansa enjoys annoying people, whether they be his superiors in the Church or murderous vampires.
  • Holy Hand Grenade: He literally has a holy hand grenade launcher in his chest cavity.
  • It's Personal: Subverted. Despite being an Executioner whose village was destroyed by Dead Apostles, Hansa doesn't actually have much against them and is perfectly happy to leave them alone if they keep a low profile.
  • The Snack Is More Interesting: Cheerfully ignores False Assassin's attack on Snowfield PD and goes straight for the coffee.
  • Spell My Name with an S: His name can be spelled as Hansa, Hanza, or Hanzo. Considering his origin, Hansa is most likely the intended spelling.
  • Team Switzerland: As an overseer, Hansa doesn't have much stake in the war other than to make sure it doesn't get too out of hand.
  • Vampire Hunter: Like other Executioners, Hansa specializes in hunting down and killing Dead Apostles.

    Quartet 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/quartet.png

A group of four female Executors who are subordinates of Hansa.


Snowfield Police Force

    Clan Calatin (Snowfield P.D.) 
A group of specialized police officers under the command of Orlando Reeve.
  • Badass Army: What they were intended to be.
    • Redshirt Army: How they actually turned out. Despite being equipped with imitation Noble Phantasms, they're still just humans trying to take down the superhuman Servants.
  • Empowered Badass Normal: They're entirely human police officers outfitted with pseudo-Noble Phantasms.
  • Mook Horror Show: Despite Reeve's belief that they could stand up to Gilgamesh, they can't even realistically repel the Beautiful Assassin or even her Master. Granted, he's a Dead Apostle... not that it makes it any better.
    • Though to be fair, Beautiful Assassin has been stated to be an exception among Assassin class servants, having a huge number of skills, each comparable to a noble phantasm, and her master being a Dead Apostle gave him a massive type advantage. Hansa even defends them by stating that their defeat wasn't because they were weak, but due a stroke of bad luck.
  • Nominal Importance: Only a few members have their name known.
  • Religious and Mythological Theme Naming: Named for the Calatin Clan that fought Cu Chulainn.
  • Surprisingly Realistic Outcome: No matter how powerful your Noble Phantasms are, they aren't much use if you don't have the skill, knowledge or experience to use them properly. Against a Servant who knows fighting inside and out, they are but children armed with weapons too good for the likes of them.
  • Unskilled, but Strong: Jester claims that for all their power, most of the members are lacking in experience and haven't even been able to properly utilize their Noble Phantasms. Though he claims that should they acquire more experience and have more members, they might be able to reach a level where they could challenge even the knight classes themselves.

John Wingard

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/john_wingard.PNG

A young police officer.


  • An Arm and a Leg: Lost his right hand in Jester's attack on the police station.
  • Artificial Limbs: Gains a prosthetic hand from Caster Dumas.
  • Heroic Vow: He vows to protect Tsubaki from True Archer. He gets some pity for his convictions and is unceremoniously swatted away.
  • Locked Out of the Loop: His father was a magus and never told him or his mother. It wasn't until he joined Orlando's police force that his potential was detected and he was finally given training in magecraft. He was completely shocked to learn the supernatural exists.
  • Missing Mom: His mother was a police officer who was killed in the line of duty.
  • Neck Snap: True Archer hits him with his bow, launching him into a building with a broken neck.
  • Not Quite Dead: To his own surprise, his Neck Snap doesn't kill him, apparently due to the influence of False Caster's Musketeers' Masquerade.
  • Poisoned Weapons: His prosthetic hand has a built-in dagger coated in Hydra venom.
  • Took a Level in Badass: After False Caster revives and empowers him, he becomes strong and fast enough to knock down True Archer and hurt him with punches and kicks.

Vera Levitt

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/vera_levitt_4.PNG

Orlando's secretary and Dr. Amelia Levitt's sister.


  • Number Two: As Orlando's secretary, she is fully aware of the False Holy Grail War and the Magical Community as a whole.
  • Youngest Child Wins: Amelia is her older sister, but Vera became the heir to their family's magecraft because Amelia is a Muggle Born of Mages.

Miscellaneous

     Count of Saint Germain 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/saint_germain_2.png

The legendary Count said to be master of ancient, forgotten wisdom and a famed alchemist, occultist, and time traveler. He encountered King Richard when he was alive.


  • Beethoven Was an Alien Spy: The historical Count of Saint Germain was the subject of wild speculation thanks to his Mysterious Past, and has been hypothesized to be anything from the Wandering Jew to a theosophical Ascended Master. Here, he's implied to be a Time Traveler with a machine quite similar to Doc Brown's DeLorean.
  • Bishōnen: He's an attractive, young-looking man wearing a top hat.
  • The Consigliere: Served as this to Richard the Lionheart.
  • Consummate Liar: One of the things he proclaims to Richard is that he's not a time traveler, despite having been born hundreds of years after him.
  • Court Mage: While not officially a court mage, Richard the Lionheart basically appoints him as his own personal Merlin.
  • Supernatural Sensitivity: When Ayaka sees him through Saber's memories via their link, Saint Germain somehow knows who she is and how she's watching.
  • Time Travel: Met Richard and Alexander the Great when he was alive.
  • Trickster Mentor: Saint Germain readily admits that he intends to trick Richard the Lionheart—or rather that he is going to assist in Richard fooling himself—in order to aid him the "grand fraud" of making him into a legend.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: Richard recalls receiving one from him after what's implied to be the Massacre at Ayyadieh.

     Master of Archer 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/master_of_archer.jpg

The unnamed master of Archer in the False Holy Grail War before Tine Chelc kills him to take over the contract.


  • An Arm and a Leg: Tine blasts off his right hand to claim his Command Seals.
  • Asshole Victim: He killed his own son and wife and acted like a total jerk to Gilgamesh after summoning him. Nobody is going to miss him.
  • Blue Blood: His family is not insignificant in the Mage Association. However, he is a member of a lineage that has started to stagnate.
  • Bullying a Dragon: Despite knowing who Gilgamesh is, he tries to boss him around and tells him he is nothing but his tool. Small wonder Gilgamesh didn't lift a finger to save him when Tine was killing him.
  • "It" Is Dehumanizing: While discussing his research on Gilgamesh's previous appearances in the Fourth and Fifth Holy Grail Wars, he calls Gilgamesh "it".
  • It's All About Me: Just as arrogant as the Servant he called, and with far less reason. Part of the reason he died was that he didn't acknowledge Gilgamesh as anything other than a simple familiar at his beck and call.
  • Lack of Empathy: Once he realized his child had less magical potential than he did, he killed him. He also killed his wife for trying to stop him. Because, according to him, they had "no future as Magi", he feels no guilt over this.
  • Last of His Kind: Killed his only successor, and his death by Tine means that his lineage dies with him.
  • Let Them Die Happy: His dying thoughts are that his lineage will live on even should he perish. Inverted as he remembered he killed his only successor.
  • Light 'em Up: His preferred method of attack. He uses a spell that gathers all of his energy into a sphere of black light that can be fired at an enemy.
  • No Name Given: We never find out his identity. Not that anyone cares about him.
  • Pater Familicide: He killed his son because he considered him a failure as a Magus, and his wife for trying to stop him.
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: Killed off in the same chapter he was introduced in.
  • The Worf Effect: Described as powerful but is instantly upstaged by his replacement.

    Filia 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/fillia_colored.jpg

An Einzbern Homunculus working behind the scenes in Snowfield's Holy Grail War. She gave Ayaka Command Seals and ordered her to travel to Snowfield.


  • Adaptational Jerkass: Forget everything you knew about the lovable goofball Ishtar from Fate/Grand Order that had aspects of Tohsaka Rin's personality. This time Ishtar is possessing an Empty Shell, so she has nothing resembling human morality to temper her negative traits.
  • Apathy Killed the Cat: Ishtar is uninterested in learning about Filia's past.
  • Artificial Human: A homunculus.
  • Darker and Edgier: Ishtar in Fate/Grand Order is Lighter and Softer because of Rin's influence. Without it she's back to her true nastier personality. Particularly, she sees no issue with summoning Gugalanna to attack Gilgamesh and Enkidu. Unfortunately for everyone else, the divine bull's full glory is on par with a raging hurricane - headed straight for Snowfield. Even more unfortunately, she pulls Gugalanna from "a world not connected to anything" - which turns out to be the Babylonia Singularity, which is why that world's Ishtar somehow lost Gugalanna and cost many, many lives that could've been otherwise saved.
  • Empty Shell: She's described to be one, making her the perfect vessel for Ishtar; unlike her Fate/Grand Order version, she won't be influenced by any external factors from Filia.
  • Grand Theft Me: Ishtar's borrowing her body to attack Gilgamesh and Enkidu.
  • Healing Hands: Casually heals Haruri's grievous injuries.
  • I Can't Sense Their Presence: She is able to "contract" her aura around her, allowing her to fight and use major spells without others being able to detect her.
  • "It" Is Dehumanizing: She repeatedly refers to Enkidu as a piece of junk.
  • Mystical White Hair: Like all Einzbern homunculi.
  • Pet the Dog: She heals Haruri's injuries and hangs out with her, and offers to take True Berserker to a real forest.
  • Pieces of God: True Archer calls her a goddess before correcting himself and saying she's more of a "broken goddess' data". It's later explained that she is a lingering "blessing" Ishtar left in the world, making it so that she would appear if Gilgamesh and Enkidu ever met each other again.
  • Spanner in the Works: Ishtar's possession of Filia threw a wrench on Francesca's plans to use her as the vessel for the Lesser Grail.
  • Spell My Name with an S: Phonetically speaking, her name could be either Filia or Philia.
  • Woman Scorned: Ishtar wants revenge against "those two ingrates" - Gilgamesh and Enkidu - and is perfectly willing to throw Gugalanna at Snowfield if it means they will be caught in the monster's fury. Taken up to eleven, when she reveals that she put a "curse" on Proper Human History, so that in the extremely unlikely event Gilgamesh and Enkidu were summoned together in a Holy Grail War in any timeline, she'll manifest there as well.

    Cashura 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/cashura.jpg

A mage who was the one who originally summoned Saber. During the summoning, he captured Ayaka and planned to use her to test if his Servant would be willing to kill a defenseless person, but was killed by False Assassin, allowing Ayaka to become Saber's Master instead.


  • Asshole Victim: Was going to kill Ayaka either way even if his Servant would not obey the order he would give them to kill her.
  • Only in It for the Money: Says he doesn't really care about the Grail War and was only joining because Francesca offered him a lot of money.
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: Gets killed as he was summoning Saber.

    Dr. Amelia Levitt 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/amelialevitt.png

Tsubaki's doctor and Vera Levitt's sister.


  • Entertainingly Wrong: When she finds the Command Seals on Tsubaki's hand, she assumes some jerk snuck in and tattooed her hand.
  • Good Cannot Comprehend Evil: Stares in disbelief when Tsubaki's parents all but start leaping with joy at the revelation that their daughter will continue developing normally even if she never wakes up from her meningitis. She mistakes it as extremely poorly channeled grief and resolves to direct them to a psychologist, not knowing they were the ones to infect her in the first place with that exact goal in mind.
  • Locked Out of the Loop: Doesn't know anything about the Magus World, much less that her mother and sister are mages.
  • Mama Bear: She's become attached to Tsubaki and swears she won't let anything happen to her.
  • Muggle Born of Mages: Amelia was born with no magical aptitude to speak of.

    The Kuruokas 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/kuruoka.jpg

Yuukaku Kuruoka and his wife. Tsubaki's parents, a couple of Japanese mages intent on joining the War. They were planning to summon Qin Shi Huangdi as their Servant by using one of his relics as a catalyst, but their preparations come to nothing, as Tsubaki ends up summoning False Rider, who subsumes them and drags their spirits into Tsubaki's Bounded World.


  • Abusive Parents: To Tsubaki. They kept her in line by carefully deceiving her into believing they were Good Parents and that their experiments would one day stop. This causes their deaths when False Rider comes to drag them into Tsubaki's dreamworld to play the part of perfect parents, until Tsubaki herself learned what was going on and released everybody.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: They showed a kind image to Tsubaki until she fell into an irreversible coma. After that, she became a nonentity to them.
  • Body Horror: As they begin their preparations to summon their Servant, False Rider arrives. Instead of the expected Command Seals, their skins break into a tapestry of rashes, blisters and pockmarks. They rise as thralls of their daughter's Rider.
  • Evilutionary Biologist: Their work focused on saturating Tsubaki's brain matter with prana-generating bacteria to turn her into a permanent magic battery.
  • Genetic Engineering Is the New Nuke: They created a strain of Black Magic-generating bacteria.
  • Guinea Pig Family: The only reason they had Tsubaki was to experiment on her.
  • It's All About Me: Neither really thinks of Tsubaki more than a source of prana for their Servant and maybe, eventually, a baby-making machine. Even as they fall under False Rider's power, neither spares a thought for her.
  • Mad Scientist: Both of them are skilled mages and biologists.
  • Medical Horror: They took a look at Zouken Matou's methods, rolled up their sleeves, and cooked up something even worse.
  • Ungrateful Bastard: When Tsubaki learns what's really going on, she makes the conscious choice to ask False Rider to release them and the others it's imprisoned. What do they do once they get their bearings back? Try to cut Tsubaki's hand off to steal her Command Seals. Sigma is so utterly infuriated that he cripples them both with Qin Shi Huangdi's crossbow, leaves them at the wayside, and informs them he only abstained from killing them to avoid saddening Tsubaki.
  • Unwitting Pawn: They weren't considered worthy to join the True Holy Grail War - they were some of the fools Faldeus called up to become False Masters. Even so, Faldeus is still somewhat concerned when they don't even try to join the False War... because they've been reduced to False Rider's puppets.

    Wolf's Creator 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/wolfs_creator.PNG

A mage who created Wolf and tried to use him as a catalyst to summon a "God" as a Servant, only to fail when Wolf obtains the Command Seals instead of him. After Enkidu is summoned and forces him to leave, he runs into and is killed by Faldeus for being useless to his plans.


  • Asshole Victim: He tortured an animal and is an ass. Nobody is going to miss him.
  • Bad People Abuse Animals: When Wolf gets the Command Seals instead of him, he gets so angry that he chases Wolf down and shoots him, then slowly tortures him while declaring he will pay for ruining his plan. In desperation, Wolf ends up summoning Enkidu, who forces him to leave.
  • Evil Cannot Comprehend Good: He does not understand why Enkidu would care about Wolf, an artificial animal, or why Enkidu would accept Wolf as his Master.
  • No Name Given: His name is never mentioned.
  • Slashed Throat: Faldeus slices his throat with a knife.
  • There Is No Kill like Overkill: As he slowly bleeds out from his knife wound, Faldeus then has his henchmen shoot him until his corpse is turned to mush.
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: He's killed soon after his introduction.

    Galvarosso Scladio 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/galvarosso.png

The head of the powerful Scladio family, a multi-ethnic mafia group with ties to everything from business to magecraft. He's targeted by True Assassin to weaken the Family, and by extension their agent in the Grail War.


  • The Cameo: He had bought a pair of mystic eyes from the Rail Zeppelin.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: He cares greatly for his great-great-granddaughter Olivia (who looks like his late first wife), happily gifting her a plush fox. Even knowing that was a sign of his death, he wouldn't allow his youngest family member to be sad.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: He may be a mob boss, but his mages altering influencial American souls to match his personality and create a mage paradise for themselves doesn't sit well with him at all. He even asks True Assassin to stop their plan.
  • Face Death with Dignity: Has a calm (if one-sided) conversation with True Assassin before his death. It helps that he saw this coming years ago.
  • I Just Want to Be Special: Says that he started his drive for power after meeting his first wife, a novice Mage, and wanting to be able to perform magic himself.
  • Magical Eye: He acquired a pair of mystic eyes of premonition, that for some unexplained reason, couldn't be turned off forcing him to constantly witness the moment of his death. Needless to say, he quickly had the eyes removed.
  • Your Days Are Numbered: Thanks to the faulty mystic eyes he bought, Galvarosso knew when and how he would die.

    Jiao 

The spirit summoned by the Godfelling Crossbow the Kuruokas had hoped to use as a catalyst.


  • Dreaming of Times Gone By: Its crossbow allows Tsubaki to see flashbacks to Qin Shi Huang's history when she touches it.
  • Meaningful Name: "Jiao" is a diminutive form of "dajiaoyu" (大 鮫 魚), "giant monster fish" in Japanese, which is a translation of what Xu Fu called them when they reported to the imperial audience what blocked the progress of looking for an Elixir of Life.
  • No Name Given: Their name was apparently lost "long ago". The name "Jiao" is what they ask Sigma to call them.
  • Otherworldly and Sexually Ambiguous: They are described as looking androgynous, and Tsubaki cannot tell if they are a man or a woman. Their beauty is also frequently emphasized.
  • Pieces of God: They identify themselves as "a remnant of a god".
  • Pimped-Out Dress: Described as wearing glamorous red clothing that makes them look like royalty.
  • Soul Jar: They are essentially bound to the crossbow.
  • Translator Microbes: When they first make contact with Tsubaki, they try to talk to her in several languages to see which ones she understands, including English, Mandarin Chinese, French, and Vietnamese.

    Thia Escardos (UNMARKED SPOILERS
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/thia.png

An existence devised by Mesala Escardos 1800-years ago. It has existed in the Escardos family's Magic Circuits all this time in the slim chance that it can be reborn. With the death of Flat Escardos, "he" finally was given chance to be born as the fitting vessel.


  • Anti-Magic: Is noted to possess the equivalent of Magic Resistance EX, giving him the ability to interact with and negate magical energy.
  • Blue-and-Orange Morality: It wants to become a "True Human" even if to do that he has to erase Humanity to do so. He wonders whether Flat would have managed to survive his awakening had they cultivated a relationship like Flat had with his Servant; he's also jealous that Jack had his soul mixed with Flat's.
  • Death-Activated Superpower: He is born when Faldeus' hired sniper shoots Flat dead.
  • Didn't See That Coming: Seeing Enkidu create several anti-aircraft guns to fight him causes Thia to react in shock due to him recognizing them from the various movies Flat had watched.
  • Hate at First Sight: Thea quickly recognizes that Ayaka is a threat to him after meeting her and would have killed her on the spot if Enkidu didn't interfere.
  • Magnetic Weapons: Thia's ability to imbue objects with Magecraft and accelerate them, effectively creating a magical accelerator cannon, are interpreted as the A Clockwork Abaddon Noble Phantasm.
  • Meaningful Name: "Thia" is only one letter away from Theia, the name of the planet hypothesized to have crashed onto Earth 4.6 billion years ago, resulting in the creation of our Moon. The name connection seems to hint that Mesala really did try to not only create an Ultimate One but recreate Brunestrud.
  • Otherworldly and Sexually Ambiguous: The official profile for Thia merely states that "The body serving as Thia's foundation is male", meaning that he is a male merely because Flat was also male. The narration also uses double-gender pronouns for them, much like it does for Enkidu.
  • Painting the Medium: Thia's introduction to the story causes the first usage of a first-person point of view. It's also a case of Bold Inflation as all uses of the words "I", "me", and "my" are bolded.
  • Perception Filter: Thia is able to use high-grade Perception Magecraft, which he tries to use in order to fire off a giant ball of space debris to hit Snowfield behind Enkidu's back. Being that Enkidu has high-level Presence Detection, he quickly notices the shot Thia was firing and is able to deflect it off the course.
  • Skilled And Strong: Thia inherits Flat's massive power reserves, and while it's a moot point since he's a living being, it's rendered as the equivalent of Independent Action A++ in his profile. While he isn't a Servant, he's so absurdly strong in comparison to modern mages his innate abilities can be interpreted as Skills and Noble Phantasms.
  • Time Master: He has a limited though powerful form of this, interpreted as the Time-Flow Manipulation Skill, at a very high rank, allowing him to speed up or slow down any concepts within an area for as long as he has the magic energy, though he can't manage to reverse the flow of time or even stop it.
  • True Sight: His enhanced senses are interpreted as the Dweller of the Demonic Sphere Skill, allowing him to perceive the world and all of the overlapping magical structures around him, though it's not limited to his vision.
  • Ultimate Life Form: In his own words, he is merely an existence who is meant to become a "True Human". Some of the details about him make it seem like Mesala was meaning to recreate Brunestrud, the Crimson Moon AKA Type-Moon.
  • Upgrade vs. Prototype Fight: Though their backgrounds differ as to where they came from, Thia possesses many parallels with fellow artificial being Enkidu, including a strong bond with a blonde Insufferable Genius (Gilgamesh for Enkidu and Flat for Thia) and Combat Pragmatist proclivities. Their differences are fleshed out during their battle.
