Caster (キャスター, Kyasutā?) is a Caster-class Servant of Chaldea Security Organization in the Grand Orders of Fate/Grand Order.


ProfileEdit

IdentityEdit

Caster's True Name is Leonardo da Vinci (レオナルド・ダ・ヴィンチ, Reonarudo da Vinchi?), a genius branded as omnipotent. A person of Europe’s 15th~16th Century. A prominent genius who provided a lot of influence on the advancement of civilization and who left his name behind in human history. Although he is recorded to be a peerless handsome young man, a matchless pretty boy————this is in fact his appearance. Regardless, age and gender has no effect before a true genius. Doctrines and fashion may change with the times, but there is merely one truth. Whatever happens, da Vinci is the unrivaled omnipotent one![1][2]

There exists a statue of David that was constructed by having his adolescent figure as a model.[1][2]

HistoryEdit

Everything was possible. Her teacher Verrocchio, Machiavelli and Botticelli of whom are her friends, Cesare and the French King Francis I, her sponsors and so forth, and the people of the world, all called and praised da Vinci as a natural genius. Such things are nice, but that is incorrect. Everything is the fruit of learning. It is nothing more than a motivation of having studied for the “origin of all creation”. He/she reflects on this quietly as thus.[1]

Certainly, da Vinci is self-aware that there is practically no one who can rival his/her “output”. The sole person that can compare with him/her is more or less, Michelangelo, really. But even that is only in the field of the fine arts. In other fields such as science and mathematics, there is no one who surpasses him/her. What is the reason?[1]

It’s learning. That is, it is no more than information being “inputted” and accurately grasped, organized and stored in da Vinci's head as knowledge that can be feasibly referred to at all times. However, one can conclude that this is not something someone has that was produced from nothing, but rather, it is due to a talent bestowed by a god. The particulars of so far as “outputting” practical applications/developments is from the basis of the information being “inputted” into his/her head, and it seems to be a mechanism that is sufficiently well-reasoned. Everybody can do it. So why is he/she different?[1]

However, people far and wide called da Vinci omnipotent. The Universal Man (Uomo Universale) with no person that can rival him/her in this world.[1]

Heh, yes, I see. Omnipotent. All of you are calling me as such.[1]

In this way, da Vinci was “self-aware” of his/her omnipotence. Knowing the existence of magic that is concealed in Mystery, and also letting his/her talent in that field blossom, already, it is no more than a natural result for him/her. Although his/her body does not even possess the Magic Circuits that are refined by the bloodline according to one’s family lineage, as well as a Magic Crest that is the result of the diligent studies of successive generations of magi, the omnipotent one was going strong. Naturally, regarding the quantity of her Magic Circuits that he/she was born with, it is understandably negligible. And yet, its quality is something that should be called outside the standard, while concerning its composition, it is very abnormal. It would mean that his/her omnipotence would be also demonstrated to the magical world.[1]

Even in spite of the very short training time————He/she manipulated multiple attributes and mastered multiple Thaumaturgical Systems.[1]

"How is it possible? How, does he have so much talent? Is it possible to attain those abnormal Magic Circuits? Perhaps that is, something caused by the blood of a mage from the Age of Gods being left behind in you, expressed as an atavism, is it not?"[1]

Da Vinci informs the inquiries of the magus of the Clock Tower, who became her acquaintance, even though it is not to the extent of calling him a friend, with this:

Now look, it’s because at any rate, I am ‘omnipotent’, right?[1]

The appearance of his/her smile is beautiful, as if a goddess has descended to the earth. No doubt, it is because da Vinci is omnipotent even in regards to beauty.[1]

AppearanceEdit

While a male normally, da Vinci says that the Mona Lisa represented the ideal beauty she pursued during her life, so she feels nothing wrong in having become that beauty itself.


PersonalityEdit

Rational, yet placid. However, at things that are very interesting to him/her, da Vinci will jump at it with sparkling eyes. A type of genius that accurately grasps one’s abilities. What he/she can do, and what he/she cannot do. What others can do, and what they cannot do. Basically, because he/she can grasp (calculate) and speculate/observe everything with merely a glance, he/she is always composed. The point is, one should be composed and without being any different than usual, even if one falls into a desperate situation with no escape, and it’s no good if one doesn’t be careful. For him/her, the “unexpected” doesn’t simply occur, and even if it does occur, he/she completely assesses with great interest that rare situation. Just because it is said that he/she puts on a face that grasps anything, one should not be restricted, nor is it good, to completely rely on him/her.[1]

The fact that his/her current self is in a young female body is something da Vinci is relatively unaware of. After taking a bath, he/she is the type to prowl around as he/she likes while naked. Regardless of whoever is around.[1]

After becoming a Servant of the protagonist, da Vinci considers the Master as a “pupil”, and he/she conducts him/herself as a “teacher”. If one would have to say it, they would say he/she is someone who has a familiarity similar to a “teacher who is close in age” to their pupil rather than someone who is a “great teacher”.[1]

While extremely intelligent, da Vinci is also humble and kind to those around her, though she is more than willing to boast of her greatness when reasonably allowed. She is able to handle grave matters like Mash's deteriorating conditions and the havoc caused by Solomon with a gentle but understanding attitude.

However, da Vinci is not without her eccentricities. She seemingly possesses a great affection for birds and subjects related to them. For example, when creating a vehicle to cross the deserts in Jerusalem, she adds a multitude of wing designs found on many of her previous inventions and dubbed the vehicle the Ornithricopter. She also keeps a beautifully crafted mechanical bird perked on her shoulders at all times.

Da Vinci has a penchant for eavesdropping, especially when Dr. Roman is talking. There is also her habit of putting on a pair of glasses when activating her Noble Phantasm.

RelationshipsEdit

Romani Archaman
A close friend who is her colleague.
"■■■■■■ with a tendency to ■■■■ ■■■■■■, isn’t he? Good grief."[1]
King of Magecraft
"Good grief. Jeez."[1]
Makiri Zolgen
As a matter of fact, an acquaintance. In their early years, da Vinci is an acquaintance with Makiri, who is an idealist. Although not a comrade, he/she conjectured and recognizes him as an excellent magus.[1]
Michelangelo
One of da Vinci's few friends. Although it was only in the fine arts, he is a companion who stood equal with him/her, possessing a natural genius not inferior to his/her own.[1]
Sherlock Holmes
As for that genius, it is irritating to keep an eye on him since the beginning…[1]
■■■ ■■■■■
"————Ah, like that sort of thing?"[1]

RoleEdit

Fate/Grand OrderEdit

The third Heroic Spirit summoned by Chaldea. A Servant summoned during a time when the Heroic Spirit Summoning System: FATE was still incomplete. Although it was said that she was about to depart before long as a result of the system’s instability, she had grown great interest when she comprehended Chaldea’s circumstances, and it is said that she chose to set up residence in Chaldea due to Romani Archaman’s persuasions. Da Vinci constructed a duplicate puppet of herself, and she is suspended in the present era by asserting that as her Master. The thing she just did is the same technique as a certain doll maker somewhere out there.[1][2]

Da Vinci is, so to speak, a fraud Servant that is suspended in the present era under a “masqueraded contract”. If she acquires a legitimate Master by means of a summoning, she will finally become a Servant “that can get to do battle and go out on the front lines.[1]

Da Vinci and The Seven Counterfeit Heroic SpiritsEdit

Salem: The Taboo Epiphany GardenEdit

Second PrologueEdit


AbilitiesEdit

Da Vinci's Personal Skills include Natural Born Genius (天賦の叡智, Tenpu no Eichi?) and Pioneer of the Stars (星の開拓者, Hoshi no Kaitaku-Sha?). Her Golden Rule (Body) (黄金律(体), Ōgon-Ritsu (Karada)?) Skill is the possession of a perfect goddess-like body, preserving beauty. Leonardo intentionally acquired this Skill for his benefit when he “redesigned” his body as a female (Mona Lisa). Her Noble Phantasm is Uomo Universale.[2]

Being a great man of wisdom, one can therefore conclude that da Vinci was given the Caster Class, or not. Since during his/her lifetime, he/she was a powerful magus. There is not one thing strange about that. It is something obvious. In addition to science, mathematics, engineering, natural history, music, architecture, sculpture, painting, invention, weapons development, and so forth, he/she also simply possessed the talent for magecraft.[1][2]

Creation and ConceptionEdit

Shimokoshi is the character illustrator for Leonardo da Vinci.[2] Hikaru Sakurai is the scenario writer for her character.[1]

Comment from IllustratorEdit

"Although the image of the famous “Mona Lisa” picture is in this state, Mona Lisa’s clothes are like a sailor’s uniform? Let’s give her a miniskirt then! I tried to draw her while taking into account what the director said to me. Her hairstyle is like a modern style’s haircut too. From the standpoint of a weapons developer, I designed a staff that incorporates a pentagram and a stern gauntlet device as her weapons. If I thought of her as a character that was used as a store NPC to some degree, she would become the main playable NPC… By the way, when I was notified that Miss Maaya Sakamoto was the voice actor responsible for her voice, I was so happy, I could die!"[1]
