- For the highest law of magi, see Grand Order.
Quest for the Holy Grail "Grand Order" (聖杯探索 グランドオーダー, Seihai Tansaku Gurando Ōdā?), named after the highest law of magi due to their critical importance, are quests performed by Chaldea Security Organization in order to reverse the eradication of mankind.
A Singularity (特異点, Tokuiten?) is an unobservable region that does not exist within Chaldea's recorded history. It's as if a hole has opened up within the timeline, a hole that is separate from the regular temporal axis.
Because of humanity's destruction in 2015 due to the collapse of the Human Order Foundation. Chaldea is forced to travel to Singularities in the past in order to fix the irregularities of history caused by various Holy Grails. The 'Grand Order' is a "name for those who would rise up against human history for the sake of humanity, and combat fate itself."
Utilizing Rayshift, the souls of selected subjects are projected into the past, forming Spiriton avatars with the capacity to interfere with historical events. By the efforts of time-travelling agents, anomalous temporal singularities may be eliminated.
The exact procedure of the Grand Order differs depending on the nature of the Singularity, however there are two general goals; the correction or elimination of the distortions resulting from or responsible for the Singularity, and the retrieval or destruction of the Grail supporting the Singularity.
The initial Singularity detected by Chaldea, believed to be the cause of humanity's future extinction, was located in Fuyuki, Japan in 2004 AD and codenamed Singularity F. The mission to explore and eliminate the Singularity was designated the First Order.
Following the successful elimination of Singularity F and the revelation concerning the incineration of the future, seven even larger Singularities were detected in the past. As Chaldea embarked on the mission of eliminating these Singularities to return history to its rightful course and restore the future, the name 'First Order' was abandoned for 'Grand Order' - a mission named after the highest law of magi in view of its importance.
During the course of this mission, multiple smaller Singularities emerged and were resolved. When the seven major Singularities were eliminated, an attack on Chaldea led to the final battle against Goetia, the Beast posing as the King of Magic, and the 72 Demon Gods which comprised it, in its temple - a Singularity thought to be the final one, the conclusion of which brought an end to the Human Order Incineration Incident.
However a number of Singularities have emerged since Goetia's defeat, in part due to several Demon Pillars who escaped during the temple's collapse.

Fuyuki: The Contaminated City in FlamesEdit
The Singularity was located in Fuyuki City, Japan in 2004 AD. At this point in history, a Holy Grail War was taking place in the city. Following the Singularity's manifestation, the city was engulfed in flames and all humans vanished, leaving only the Servants. The Holy Grail War was also disrupted, being switched to something else. Subsequently, a corrupted Saber defeated five of the other Servants, with only Caster surviving. The fallen Servants were also corrupted and rose as Shadow Servants. At the same time, monsters appeared in the city.
The core of the Singularity is Fuyuki's Greater Grail, guarded by Saber.

Camelot: The Sacred Round Table Realm (神聖円卓領域, Shinsei Entaku Ryōiki?), alternatively The Shining Airgetlám (輝けるアガートラム, Kagayakeru Agātoramu?), was the sixth of the seven primary Singularities in the Human Order Incineration Incident. Located in the Holy Land, A.D. 1273, it's Humanity Foundation Value was EX.
The Singularity was located in A.D. 1273, in the Holy Land around Jerusalem. The roots of the Singularity lie in several events. Firstly, someone who should have died midway through the Ninth Crusade was given a Holy Grail, and using its power, the expeditionary force reached the Holy Land, burning the lands and slaughtering the people living there. However, in their greed, they summoned Ozymandias who subsequently confiscated the Grail and set about building his kingdom there. Having lost the Grail, the expeditionary force lost ground and were eventually cornered by the people of the Holy Land. When they were cornered, a Servant identifying himself as Richard the Lionheart, but displaying different behavior and appearance, appeared and summoned his own crusaders. The crusaders subsequently captured the expeditionary force and occupied the Holy Land.
Secondly, Bedivere did not return Excalibur to the Lady of the Lake, Artoria Pendragon was unable to die when she was fated to after the Battle of Camlann, ending up becoming a wandering ghost. With Rhongomyniad still in hand, she eventually turned into a Divine Spirit, who would come to be known as the Lion King. The Lion King was aware of the incineration of humanity and planned to store a selection of human souls into Rhongomyniad to preserve humanity in some form. After arriving in the Singularity, the Lion King summoned the Knights of the Round Table (with the exceptions of Bedivere and Galahad) and told them of her plan. Aware that some of them wouldn't follow her, she gave them until sunset to decide where they stood. In the subsequent battle, the Knights who decided to follow the Lion King slaughtered their fellow knights who chose to stand against her. The Lion King then bestowed Gifts on the surviving knights, with the exception of Agravain.
The Knights of the Lion King exterminated the crusaders, with the expeditionary force being annihilated along with them. During the battle with the one claiming to be Richard the Lionheart, Gareth sacrificed herself to give the others an opportunity to kill him, unable to bear the guilt of killing her fellow knights any longer. Her brother Gawain was the one who struck them both down. Afterwards, the Lion King and her knights established the Holy City of Camelot in the Holy Land. This occurred about half a year before Chaldea's arrival.
