Assassin (アサシン, Asashin?) is an Assassin-class Servant able to be summoned by the Protagonist in the Grand Orders of Fate/Grand Order. He is also known as Assassin of Shinjuku (新宿のアサシン, Shinjuku no Asashin?)
Assassin's True Name is Yan Qing (燕青, En sei?). Yan Qing was an outlaw who joined the Grand Assembly of the 108 Stars of Destiny during the latter half of Water Margin, one of the Four Great Classical Novels of Chinese literature. He was a short and handsome man with prodigious skill in both the martial arts and music, who entered the Great Assembly with his lord, Lu Junyi.
Of course, Yan Qing was a fictional character, but he is still known as a founding master of the Yan Qing school of martial arts, even outside of Water Margin. While the martial art’s origin story is itself a fiction, this famed outlaw’s renown as the founder of a martial art has boosted his importance.
