Assassin (アサシン, Asashin?) is the Assassin-class Servant able to be summoned by the Protagonist in the Grand Orders of Fate/Grand Order.



Assassin's True Name is Charles-Henri Sanson (シャルル=アンリ・サンソン, Sharuru-Anri Sanson?). The fourth head of the Sanson family, which had performed executions for generations in Paris. Charles-Henri Sanson was no assassin, but an executioner. The role of executioner is something inherited through the generations, and he is the fourth. His lifestyle was extremely wealthy, but he was often scorned because of his occupation - something that became a source of anguish in his youth.[2]

Leading an elegant lifestyle worthy of nobility, the Sanson House loved and respected the King and Queen and showed great pity for the citizens governed by them. It has been said that they even provided the cutting-edge medical technology, which was cultivated from the executions, free-of-charge to the needy.[2]

However, the times did not allow Charles' peace. During the tumultuous years of the French Revolution, he executed men from all walks of life. He, who had jobs as an executioner forced upon himself even after the French Revolution occurred, eventually had to be present in the execution of his beloved king Louis XVI and his queen, Marie Antoinette. Following the invention of the guillotine, created out of humane considerations, he conducted further executions.[2]



Charles-Henri Sanson maintains a neutral stance towards his Master. Since the high praises regarding his skills for killing are, as expected, included among the reasons for his summoning, his feelings are somewhat complicated.[2]

  • Assassin's sword

Assassin wields a T-shaped Claymore bearing the inscription Epée de Justice(Sword of Justice). He was a physician as a side job. Traces of this can be seen in his Skills.[2] His Noble Phantasm is La Mort Espoir.

Executioners (処刑人, Shokeinin?) is a skill, severing evil by means of evil; the ultimate judgement act. Damage increases towards the Evil alignment. Also, a Servant will also become a target if his actions are regarded as evil.[1]

His special ability is Medicine (医術, Ijutsu?), a modern medicine that surpasses the medical technology of those times (in which transmission proliferated) in a few degrees. Still, this Skill does not make a comparison by modern standards, instead determining by the standards of the age in which the Servant lived.[1]

His special ability is Human Anatomy Research (人体研究, Jintai Kenkyū?), a concept placed on the "other side" of execution techniques and medicine. He did not neglect researching on where he could hurt the human body without killing, without leaving prognostic symptoms. Putting on another way, it means he understands where it is okay to injury.[1]
