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, and it includes references to all of them.[1]


Bazett Fraga McRemitz, a member of the Mage's Association and a master in the 5th Holy Grail War, wakes on the fourth day of the 5th Holy Grail war with a new servant, Avenger, and no memory of what happened to her beforehand. She and Avenger set off to fight and win the Holy Grail War.

Meanwhile, Shirou Emiya lives a peaceful life with all his friends, from the 5th Holy Grail War. After her experiment alters the event-horizon changes time and space (What has caused the Masters and Servants killed in the 5th Holy Grail War back to life, except Kirei Kotomine, even with the Holy Grail destroyed by Shirou and Saber in Fate route), Rin Tohsaka leaves for the Mage's Association in England to fix things. The Servants sense a new danger while dark creatures appear soon afterward. Shirou, as a precaution, sets off to ensure nobody is in danger and instead finds himself frequently meeting a mysterious girl, Caren Hortensia.

Both Bazett and Shirou find themselves in a time loop that lasts four days, beginning of the fourth day of the 5th Holy Grail War. Each time they die or survive four days, they always awake on the first day of the loop aware of what has happened to them since the first time loop began. Determined to end the loop, Bazett, Avenger, and Shirou fight to discover the truth behind what's causing the endless four days.

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.
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.
