Fate hollow ataraxialogo

Fate/hollow ataraxia (フェイト/ホロウアタラクシア, Feito/horou atarakushia?) is a visual novel game created by TYPE-MOON in 2005 which is the sequel to Fate/stay night. The word "ataraxia" in the title is a Greek term for "tranquility", giving the title the combined meaning of "empty (or false) tranquility".



The plot of Fate/hollow ataraxia is based half a year after the events of Fate/stay night. Like its preceding counterpart, the story is set in Fuyuki City. It does not appear to follow a particular route from Fate/stay night. Like Kagetsu Tohya, the story takes place in a dream world that reflects multiple timelines at once, and while the scene "Sequel" depicts the world outside of the loop, it was written in a non-serious manner and Kinoko Nasu said "It’s best if you don’t think too much about it" when questioned about its place in the timeline.[1]

Bazett mistakes Rin for the Edelfelt she had fought, not yet understanding that her Holy Grail War is different from the Fifth Holy Grail War. Rin understands the dissonance, telling Bazett that the war has long since ended. Once Rin mentions Kirei Kotomine's name and death, Bazett has a mental breakdown, and upon Rin asking about what happened to her arm, Bazett runs away.

Main Characters Edit

Bazett Fraga McRemitz
A mage sent from the Mage's Association to fight the 5th War of the Holy Grail, born in Ireland, she is a descendant of an old mage family of an unusual bloodline. She is mentioned very briefly in Fate/stay night. The original Master of Lancer, she was betrayed by Kirei Kotomine and became the master of the Servant Avenger.
Caren Hortensia
An assistant exorcist and member of the Church sent to Fuyuki City to replace Kotomine after his death and report the aftermath of the 5th Holy Grail War. She acts as the mediator for the false Grail War that results from the looping four days; because she was not involved, she is able to see the strange events occurring objectively. She is noted for having a rather bizarre personality. She is actually the daughter of Kotomine.
The 8th Servant, who was accidentally summoned in the 3rd war, who appears suddenly as Bazett's new Servant. His true name is believed to be Angra Mainyu, an evil spirit of Zoroastrianism.

Secondary charactersEdit

Shirou Emiya
Within this installment, Shirou experiences unexpected changes in personality and momentary lapses in memory, particularly related to his own skills. In reality, it was Avenger, the eighth Servant, who took possession of Shirou's form during daytime and seperated this illusion of Shirou that it make when precise act as Servant of Bazett during nighttime.
Rin Tohsaka
In the first half of the game, Rin is in London. She returns in the second half with an apparently dramatic change in personality (specifically, a penchant for cosplaying as a miko or magical girls). However, she has also become an experienced mage, demonstrating this when she was the first to logically compose an explanation as to why time has been looping for four days and when she gives Shirou advice. In Fate/hollow ataraxia, she wields the Kaleidostick, another of Zelretch's inventions, which when activated, the Kaleidostick transfers knowledge from an alternate version of its user into its current wielder, in addition to providing an ample source of Prana. However, the Kaleidostick dislikes its creator, and frequently manipulates its user into humiliating situations. In Fate/hollow ataraxia, the Kaleidostick is responsible for transforming Rin into the magical girl Kaleido-Ruby.
Other characters
While playing less prominent roles, all Masters and Servants in Fate/stay night of the 5th Holy Grail War appear again, with the exception of Kotomine, Zouken Matou, and True Assassin.
