Lancer (ランサー, Ransā?) is a Lancer-class Servant able to be summoned by the Protagonist in the Grand Orders of Fate/Grand Order.



Lancer's True Name is Hector (ヘクトール, Hekutōru?), the great hero of Troy.[2][3] He is the older brother of Paris, who was the instigator of the Trojan War.[2] In order to challenge the Achaeans, who boasted an overwhelming military force, he took over for his aged father, the king, and consolidated the army. Hector was the strongest warrior of the Trojan army as well as its high-commander, and on top of that even a politician. He easily betrayed the expectations of the gods and cornered the Achaean army to the brink of retreat for a time. In the Trojan War, he is a superior general who excels in all. In face of overwhelming difference of soldiers, he maintained the siege by all means. He was admired as "Hector of the Gleaming Helmet" (兜輝くヘクトール, Kabuto Kagayaku Hekutōru?).[1]

In his lifetime, he was the strongest rival of Achilles.[2] If Achilles didn't participate in the Trojan War, the war may possibly had ended in favor for Troy's victory.[1] Hector was the killer of Achilles' close friend Patroclus. Achilles, enraged with his friend's death, kept repeatedly making provocations towards Hector, although Hector held out by at times running away. When Achilles abandoned his immortality with the power of his spear Diatrekhōn Astēr Lonkhē and called out for a one-on-one duel, Hector ended up accepting it.[1] Despite the temptation with Achilles' temporary abandonment of his immortality, Hector was defeated by a paper-thin difference in skill.[2] Even after killing Hector, the way Achilles insulted him by dragging his corpse around with his chariot was considered to be a foolish and intolerable act.[4] After his defeat to Achilles, who was still the strongest even after losing his immortality, the Trojan side began to rapidly collapse. If he was there, they might have won without being deceived by the Trojan Horse.[1]



He is the exact opposite of Achilles as a hero, a bearded middle-age man who likes to play the fool.[1] He calls himself an "old man" and always fights on the battlefield with an easygoing attitude.[1][2] He’s ruthless, but not cruel.[2] Attending to things with an slacken mood from beginning to end. One might misunderstand him as lacking on seriousness, but he is always serious. Is just that, he avoids to let such emotion called serious show in his face to the best of his abilities. After all, he was also a politician.[1]


Fate/Grand OrderEdit

Hector first appears in Okeanos, chapter 5. He is seen allying with Edward Teach, Anne Bonny and Mary Read.

Other appearancesEdit

In the Unlimited Blade Works scenario of Fate/stay night, Hector was indirectly mentioned when Archer deployed Rho Aias against Lancer's Gáe Bolg.[5]

In Fate/Apocrypha, Hector was mentioned in Rider of Red narration.[4] He is noted to be one of the foes he wishes never to have a rematch with.[2]


He is skilled, yet not gifted. He faced other famous heroes besides Achilles, without retreating a single step or rather, he would often retreat two or three steps and then strike the enemy when their guard's down, before running away again, and just when they think he's far away, he throws mud at them. He prided himself at being the strongest when it comes to siege battles.[2]

Proof of Friendship (友誼の証明, Yūgi no Shōmei?) is one of his personal skills.

Durindana is his Noble Phantasm.
