Archer (アーチャー, Āchā?) is an Archer-class Servant able to be summoned by the Protagonist in the Grand Orders of Fate/Grand Order.

ProfileEdit

IdentityEdit

Archer's True Name is Tawara Touta (俵藤太, Tawara Tōta?). A warrior from the mid-Heian period, Tawara Touta was revered as the founder of martial arts in the Kanto provinces. Later introducing himself as Fujiwara Hidesato (藤原秀郷, Fujiwara Hidesato?), he suddenly won fame by shooting Taira Masakado.[1]

Tawara Touta was a brave soldier who performed many achievements while wielding the golden long sword handed down from his ancestor, Fujiwara Kamatari. A certain day, he was asked by the incarnation of a dragon god to exterminate the great centipede of Mount Mikami. He spit on his arrow, offered a prayer to Hachiman and splendidly exterminated the great centipede, big enough to make seven and a half turns in a mountain - with a bow and arrow. After receiving a rice bag that never runs out of rice as thanks from the dragon gods, it has been told that Tawara Touta went through hundreds of oni-exterminations and finally shot Taira Masakado, who was an immortal demon.[1]

AppearanceEdit

PersonalityEdit

Tawara Touta is a large, open-hearted Servant with a fondness for meals. 
Normally, those sultry muscles and pushy personality would just make people pull away, but with his straight and unbelievable smiling face one unconsciously ended up talking deeply with him.
He prefers eating together with everybody while making a ruckus rather than having a meal by himself.
The best Servant in regards to livelihood.
One cannot eat lasers; on the other hand, rice is delicious! A pleasant man who aids the timid and unnerve the bullish.[2]

A young warrior who, bold and courageous as he is, holds an amiable smiling face. He is a martial man fond of a contest of strength, as well as a gourmet with love of the pursuit of delicious meals.[2]

"It's quite difficult for me to not say that I like fighting more than three meals a day though! Hahaha!"

No matter when or what the situation is, he will go and provide help cheerfully. He may look like the physical type, but he is prudent and excels in his wit to win a battle and advances forward to the next. He doesn't have a protagonist trait of "Just I alone is enough" and so he will not go forward on his own. If such time comes he will leave the fighting for people meant for it, and if push comes to the shove, personally step in and solve all problems-----is how he thinks. Rather than an older brother, he is more of a leader sort of character.[2]

He does not really change his behavior, be it towards the master or anyone else. Laughing boldly, thinking through things boldly, and clapping the shoulder boldly. Fundamentally someone without much distance on him.[2]

"You are my Master, then? Hahaha, please treat me well then! Hahaha!" Like that (as he claps your shoulder heavily).[2]

At the basic, he is someone who considers carefully the opponent's sentiment and standpoint, but against the type he dislikes he would not consider anything, simply slashing them down.[2]

It's plain and simple what are the types that he does not like. "Guys who make meals taste bad when I eat together with them." In other words: "Those who can only live selfishly and trample underfoot woman and children selfishly; those kinds of idiots!" Despite being a Servant, he is picky about his meals.[1]

Comment from Illustrator:Edit

"If it's Tawara Touta, then the famed Taira no Masakado's subjugation would come to mind. But this time I drew him as an Archer possessing the bow that he used to exterminate the Oomukade. The image is an invigorating, macho gourmand. Similar to a certain gourmet house Nori somewhere. With his Noble Phantasm of a bale that cannot be exhausted in his shoulder, he seems to use it as a battle weapon... is how I think it went with his animation motion. Detailed art of rice soaring and scattering!"[2]
