Avenger of Shinjuku (新宿のアヴェンジャー, Shinjuku no Avenjā?) is an Avenger-class Servant able to be summoned by the Protagonist in the Grand Orders of Fate/Grand Order. They are initially Rider of Shinjuku (新宿のライダー, Shinjuku no Raidā?) before absorbing another Phantom and having their class change to Avenger.
Lobo (ロボ, Robo?), the King of Currumpaw, was an actual gray wolf (there are diverging opinions) whose name became widespread after being featured on Seton’s “Wild Animals I Have Known”. The story goes that he rampaged on the Currumpaw Plains, a vast American pasture, killing over 2,000 heads of cattle in the space of 5 years and slaughtering 250 sheep in a single night without eating them. Naturally, the ranch owners attempted to bring him down by employing all sorts of methods (from poison, to guns and even traps), but supposedly Lobo paid no mind to those. Employed as a famous hunter, Seton came up with an idea: instead of directly facing Lobo (who was feared as “the devil incarnate"), he would make use of his mate - the white wolf Blanca. The curious Blanca was caught in a bear trap and killed by humans. Seeking his mate’s corpse, Lobo was finally caught in a trap. It has been said that the captured Lobo refused all meals from humans and died just like that.
Hessian (ヘシアン, Heshian?) refers to the German mercenaries that came to America after being hired by the British government, and the nameless mercenary that rides Lobo was also one of them. Still, the story goes that he got his head blown off after receiving a cannon fire and, without realizing that he was already dead, began to roam about on Sleepy Hollow. He became known as the "Headless Horseman" in the The Legend of Sleepy Hollow.
Unlike actual history, the King of Currumpaw surpasses over 3m in length.
Mutual understanding and the likes are impossible. What we have here is a beast that scatters hatred.
