Archer's True Name is Nikola Tesla (ニコラ・テスラ, Nikora Tesura?), a man recognized as a genius scientist, a "worthy rival" of the King of Inventors Edison, who "controlled electromagnetism" from the 19th century to 20th century. Recognized as a "prodigy without equal" and the "Modern Prometheus", he was one of the great scholars who "clarified the power of thunder and lightning", previously described in various mythologies as a "legend of god." The "man who revealed Zeus' thunder to the world", he brought about "electricity" to human civilization.
Archer was recognized by others as a "peerless handsome man."
Dubbed as the "Professor Thunder and Lightning" by Mark Twain, Archer is a haughty individual recognized as a "devil of fierce and magnificent intellect." His wish upon the Holy Grail is "to complete the Nikola Tesla World System", to bring about the "advent of a new world in which interacting electric currents come and go in space itself." He is willing to spare no efforts in the restoration of human history for the sake of that wish.
Archer qualifies for the Archer-class due to having brought about what can be called the "second coming of gods of thunder and lightning", sublimated as his Noble Phantasm, System Keraunos. As it was previously a power only endowed by beings from the Age of Gods, Archer raising civilization by making it available to all is seen as a turning point in human history, granting him the high EX rank of the Pioneer of the Stars skill.
