Caster (キャスター, Kyasutā?) is the Caster-class Servant able to be summoned by the Protagonist in the Grand Orders of Fate/Grand Order.



Caster's True Name is Xuanzang Sanzang (玄奘三藏, Genjō Sanzō?), a Buddhist priest from the Tang dynasty, in the 7th century BC. Traveling through the Silk Road in pursuit of the original Buddhist scriptures, she reached India from central Asia and then brought back to China over 367 sutras, becoming the founder of the Faxiang Buddhist sect.[1]

Journey to the WestEdit

She is known as a key character of the Chinese novel "Journey to the West". It has been said that she originally existed in heavens as Jin Chanzi (金蝉子, Konzenshi?), the disciple of Shakyamuni, but fell into secular life as a result of "a certain matter". In other words, Xuanzang is the reincarnation of Jin Chanzi.[1]

Under the command of Guanyin, the monk of good looks who rode Bai Long (Yu Long) - the son of the West Sea Dragon King transformed into a white horse - had Qitian Dasheng Sun Wukong (Sun Xingzhe), Tianpeng Yuanshuai Zhu Bajie (Zhu Wuneng) and Juanlian Dajiang Sha Wujing (Sha Heshang) as her disciples and headed for India, without ever losing heart at the countless monsters that obstructed her way.
