ProfileEdit

IdentityEdit

Assassin's True Name is Jing Ke (荊軻, Keika?). She is known for the attempted assassination to the first emperor of China, Qin Shi Huang and only barely failed her mission. If not for the interference of some external factors, she may have changed the course of Chinese history.[1]

Jing Ke not only made a living out of assassinations, but also was a hedonist individual who loved reading, swordsmanship, chats with her wise friend and - more than anything - alcohol. Upon receiving a commission from Crown Prince Dan, from the State of Yan, to assassinate the First Emperor, Jing Ke cheerfully accepted and began planning how to assassinate the watchful Emperor.[1]

Having a present to offer the First Emperor, obtaining a knife dipped in poison meant for assassinations, but just before the time for implementing the plan came, Prince Dan began to doubt whether Jing Ke - who was awaiting for a friend that would throw his life away as an assistant in the assassination - "had not lost her nerve".[1]

Being under suspicion, Jing Ke had no choice but to depart to Qin with a man that the Crown Prince had recommended as her assistant. However, during the assassination attempt, the man who was supposed to support her became unable to move out of fear and Jing Ke had to pursue the assassination all alone; but maybe due to the Emperor's good luck, she failed to catch him by a narrow margin.[1]

“Ten steps left. I will kill him”
—Jing Ke

It has been said that, having made her mind, Jing Ke was killed while scorning the First Emperor. Despite being an assassin, Jing Ke returned to dust without being able to accomplish her kill. Still, Jing Ke - who cheerfully accepted the request even while knowing she wouldn't return alive - was an individual who could be described as the world's chivalry.[1]

“Wind blow, river freeze.
The hero fords, never returns!”

—-- a poem by Jing Ke in the occasion of her parting

AppearanceEdit

Although history claims Jing Ke as a man, Jing Ke is actually a woman.[1]

PersonalityEdit

Although famed for being an assassin, Jing Kei was also a hedonist individual, who loved reading, swordsmanship, chats with her wise friends and, more than anything, alcohol.[1]

Role Edit

Fate/Grand OrderEdit

Septem: The Eternal Madness Empire Edit

Jing Ke appears in the "Septem" Singularity, along with Lu Bu, who she accompanies. They serve Nero and before meeting the Protagonist and Mash Kyrielight, they had already killed three emperors of the United Roman Empire. She fights alongside the Protagonist's party, as a part of Nero's army.

Salomon: The Grand Time Temple Edit

Jing Ke appears among the "Septem" Servants to help the Protagonist.

InterludeEdit

In her interlude The Wind is Strong and the River Cold, she asks Ritsuka and Mash to train with her in a simulated battle against Qin Shi Huang. Before she confronts the emperor after defeating his soldiers, Jing Ke speaks of how she underestimated him in life, not expecting him to knock down her dagger and escape during her shocked state. After killing the emperor, Jing Ke says that she will sacrifice herself for Ritsuka's mission, and hopes that they will lament her loss.

AbilitiesEdit

Assassin's personal skills are Suppression (抑制, Yokusei?) and Planning (プランニング, Puran'ningu?). Her Noble Phantasm is Only For Killing.
