Sir Bedivere (サー・ベディヴィエール, Sā・Bedivuiēru?) is a member of the knights of the round table, and one of the few who remained loyal to his king until the end. He worked his way up to being an Imperial Guard who kept watch over Altria out pure admiration for his king, and he simply wished to be close to her and see her true expressions. He found that even as the one knight who spent the most time around her, he never saw her smile even once and he also never learned of her identity as a woman. He attended to Altria at her death, and found himself unable to return Excalibur to the lady of the lake twice because that would signal the end of the king's life. Even though disobeying an order is the greatest sin for a knight, he did not feel proper about returning the sword. He felt anger that the king who worked so hard wasn't properly rewarded, but being unable to change her fate, he properly returned the sword the third time. After she passed away, he was happy to see that she was finally able to obtain a peaceful slumber that she had been unable to find in life.
Class 2-C studentsEdit
Claudia Hortensia (クラウディア・オルテンシア, Kuraudia Orutenshia?) is the deceased wife of Kirei Kotomine and mother of Caren Hortensia. She was a terminally ill woman with no future who fell in love with Kirei in his attempt to establish a normal life. While she loved him, his disposition could not allow him to truly care for her, as he derived pleasure from both her suffering and Caren's despair. She was able to see this, so she tried to cure him while only making him wish to see her grieve even more. When he reached the point where he could no longer go on living, he told her that the results of his "experiment" were "I could not love you."
She was on her deathbed at the time, after only two years together, nothing more than skin and bone and unable to stand up on her own. In her last attempt to prove that he could love and deserved to live, she took her own life after responding with "No. You do love me." She smiled at him right before her death, believing that he was crying for her. That was only what she thought she saw, and in reality, she drove him away from the teachings of God. Her last attempt had brought about sadness, but only that of not being able to kill her himself. He still thinks of having wanted to kill her, but doesn't know if it is for his own pleasure or guilt for wanting to kill the one he loved with his own hands.
Claudia was an albino and immune deficient, making it so that she could die from even a tiny wound. Her body always appeared tattered as a result. Caren inherited the aspect of "prone to be plagued by illnesses."

|Appears in:||Fate/stay night|
|Voice actor:||Masanori Katsuragi|
|Hair color:||Blond and Brown|
Gai Gotou (後藤 劾以, Gotō Gai?) is one of Shirou Emiya's classmates. He is described as someone who is influenced by the TV shows he watched the previous night. He shows up only once in the original Fate/stay night visual novel, and, even though a graphic for him was created, it was never used in-game. He was redesigned for the anime, which is his first visual appearance.
Gazamy the Evil Spook (, ?) is a Magus that is considered to be the greatest disaster of the Mage's Association. While he is not that dangerous as a person, he has a magic attribute that is more troublesome to magi than any other ever recorded. It is implied that even Caster, a magus from the Age of Gods, would be affected to some extent. He has been locked away in the bottom of London Tower due to this reason. While he has not appeared in any Type-Moon works, Fate/complete material III suggests he will have a role eventually.
The Gil Brigade are a group of children who follow the child version of Gilgamesh in hollow ataraxia. They consist of Jirou, the "Bland kid", Mimi, the one girl of the group who talks to Lancer while he is fishing, Imahisa, who makes fun of Lancer's cheap-looking fishing rod and for only being catch octopus, Kouta, who want to toss Lancer some fish, and Kanta, who was unable to read Gilgamesh's manga because he wasn't done with it.
Glen and Martha MackenzieEdit
Glen Mackenzie (グレン・マッケンジー, ?) and Martha Mackenzie (マーサ・マッケンジー, ?) are an elderly Canadian couple who live in Japan; their son, daughter-in-law, and grandson were unable to adapt to Japan and have returned to Canada. They provide lodgings for Waver Velvet (who has made them believe he is their grandson) and Rider.
Though near the end, despite Waver's spell being under his effect, Glen was able to figure out that Waver was not his grandson, by asking him a question that contradicted with the memories he had of his actual grandson, but was still happy to have him around and didn't mind if Waver continued to do so. After the Fourth Heaven's Feel , Glen and Martha gave Waver permission to stay in Japan with them for a while, it is implied that Glen is aware of Rider's death since Waver mentioned how both he and Rider were involved with a life threatening situation when both Glen and Waver were alone on the roof.
Grail-kun (聖杯くん, Seihai-kun?) is a parody character in Carnival Phantasm. He is a mascot-styled version of the Great Grail and Avenger that is voiced by Noriko Shitaya, the voice actress of Sakura Matou. He was originally part of the TMitter April Fools' Day site where he was listed as (せいはいくん, ?). His segments in Carnival Phantasm follow characters seeking help with their problems, and Grail-kun giving them a tool like the "Friendmaker" and the "Hero Creation Kit" in a Doraemon-like manner. The tool is always just a simple kitchen knife, and he implies that they use to solve their problems in violent manners like "show him who is boss" or "you'll become a hero after killing a million people." His last problem - solver was the "Servant Strengthening Kit", which he gave to Kotomine, and Kotomine used it to "strengthen" Lancer in the Hibi - Chika special.
Guinevere is the wife of King Arthur and the lover of Lancelot. Though the King was secretly a woman, it was necessary that a noble and virtuous queen be beside the ideal king who would save their ravaged, war-torn country. The King needed a wife according the the ideals of the populace, and a single woman's life was insignificant compared to such a grandiose ideal. Though a marriage between two women could never be consummated, it was a necessary sacrifice to protect the country and the greater good.
She attracted Lancelot's attention through her sorrow, having discarded everything and consigned herself to becoming not a "woman", or even a "human." She was nothing but a mechanical part called a "queen" that supported the king ruling the kingdom. Lancelot was granted his first audience with her in the court, and that was enough to make him swear in his heart to do anything for her, even give up his life. They became closer, and though she had finally discovered that it was his very thoughts that had been tormenting her, she was too late and had already fallen in love.
Love was the greatest taboo for someone who had given up her happiness as a woman, and that love was the root of their downfall. It was an impermissible romance, and although there should have been a path for them to continue to the end, their roles did not allow for it. The perfect knight served the perfect king in the utmost capacity, but there was still her, the tormented and ignored woman who could only weep every day. Their affair was eventually brought forth by people wishing to shatter the King's prestige, and she had been given the death sentence.
The events brought her great sorrow, becoming more ragged each day as she silently cried. She was ashamed beyond measure, blaming and questioning her own actions. She was assaulted by words like "unchaste wife" and "traitorous queen", holding herself as a sinner shouldering all the guilt and blame in the world. They did not know the truth about her marriage, so they simply surrounded her and reprimanded her all at once. Arthur never blamed her, as it was her fault for hiding her gender. Guinevere was the one who had to shoulder the burden, but it did not matter when faced publicly with the affair.
Lancelot was forced to betray his King to save her, causing her to fall into a deep self-deprecation for having misguided the "perfect knight." He acknowledges that the only thing he did for her was make her cry forevermore.

Kane Himuro (氷室 鐘, Himuro Kane?) is a student at Homurahara School. She is a friend of Yukika Saegusa and Kaede Makidera, and a long jumper. She is considerate and intelligent. She stars in her own spin-off series, Fate/school life, which displays her in a much more comical light along with her friends.
She is the brains of the trio. She is quiet, reserved, and doesn't speak that much as well. She is Minori's best friend and has a passion for gossip, especially if it involves those around her.
Sir Kay (サー・ケー, Sā・Kē?) is Arturia's step brother, who she had thought was her real brother. They still loved each other as siblings even after finding out the truth. She would more or less act as his squire, doing chores and receiving training from him, but she was far better than him in swordsmanship. She never officially won a fight against him due to various petty excuses that always allowed him to win in their arguments, such as "You lose since you threw away your sheath!" or "I'm still alive so don't act like you won!" He knew of her true identity as a girl, but kept it a secret for life after being silenced by Merlin.
Once while attending to her while she was sick, she told him that she would like to have a dream of a lion running on a grass field. He fashioned a poorly carved wooden lion that looked like a combination between a dog and a cat, and left it by her bedside. When she thanked him and told him that she had a pleasant dream of a young lion, Kay was shocked as he intended to make a decrepit old lion that would have been unable to hurt a rat. He had been worried that the lion might pounce on her in her dreams.
Kotone (コトネ, Kotone?) is a second grade female student that attends Yatsushirodai Elementary School (八代台小学校, Yatsushirodai Shougakkou?), just outside Fuyuki City. She is a close friend and classmate of Rin Tohsaka during Rin's stay with her maternal grandparents during the events of Fate/Zero. Rin feels very proud of the trust and respect Kotone has for her. She feels it is good opportunity to put her family creed into action by standing up for Kotone, such as when she is bullied by the boys of their class or when the librarian forces work onto her. Kotone eventually vanishes from school much like many other children of the area. She is taken by Ryuunosuke Uryuu and Caster for use in their various human projects and sacrifices. Rin realizes the disappearances are related to Holy Grail War in some way, and feels that she is the only one able to help her.
Rin ventures into the city to search for her alone. It is implied that Kotone meets the same gruesome fate as most of Ryuunosuke and Caster's other victims during the novel. Rin begins to despair that the hope of finding her alive is slim, and eventually even thinks that she should have aimed to find her remains in the first place. She is never referenced again afterward. The anime version of the events play out differently, as Rin manages to follow Ryuunosuke to a old building where he is keeping a number of children. She finds Kotone among them, and she manages to save them all by shattering the magecraft that was holding them in a trance. Kotone returns to school afterward with the other victims. She was originally named Satsuki in the first draft until it was remembered that Satsuki Yumizuka has that name.
Jubstacheit von EinzbernEdit
|Jubstacheit von Einzbern|
|Voice actor:||Fujimoto Yuzuru|
Yuzuru Fujimoto Jubstacheit von Einzbern, also known as "Acht", is the eighth and current head of the Einzbern family. He wasn't around during Justeaze's era, but he has kept himself alive for nearly two centuries by continuously prolonging his life. He has a white beard that makes one think of a frozen waterfall, and Kiritsugu Emiya notices an astute light from his eyes that makes it impossible to see any senility and constantly brings about a feeling of bias and pressure every time Acht's gaze meets him. He has a close relationship with the Talbot farm that produces early autumn Darjeeling, and he has served the tea only to special guests for a number of years. Since taking the family under his leadership, they have changed their goals from "seeking the Holy Grail" to "winning the Grail War." Much like the rest of the family, he wishes to reobtain the Third Magic, but he has only known the pain of defeat in his efforts to reclaim it since the time of the Second Holy Grail War. After suffering failure during the Second and Third Grail Wars, the anxiety of facing the third opportunity during the Fourth War is extraordinary. All of his emotions can be condensed into the single word "Achievement", and Kiritsugu believes his spirit likely only has this rigidity towards achievement left.
During the Third War, both their Servant, Avenger, and the "vessel" of the Grail were lost early during the conflict. The battle was rendered meaningless because the "vessel" broke before a victor was decided, so it caused him to reflect on the creation of the "vessel." He decided to cover it inside a humanoid shape that has a consciousness and can be independent, and used homunculi modeled on Justica for this ambition. The final product was Irisviel von Einzbern, whose daughter Illyasviel von Einzbern was also made to act as a vessel for the Fifth War. Unable to rely on the Einzbern magecraft in battle, he also decided to bring an outside magus into the family to act as the Einzbern's Master. He welcomed Kiritsugu Emiya as Irisviel's husband due to Kiritsugu's extraordinary abilities. Kiritsugu refers to him as "old man Acht", and the two argued over details such as installing a telephone line and power generator, which is heresy to such an established magus. He prepared the excavation of Avalon from Cornwall to summon Saber, and proclaims that no one must survive the battle, allowing them to finally acquire the Golden Grail. After Kiritsugu's betrayal, rather than seeking to punish him, he never again allows Kiritsugu into their Bounded Field and keeps him away from his daughter. Kiritsugu believes that he either wishes to exile him to carry the the shameful title of traitor for the rest of his life, or to impose the most most severe punishment that can be inflicted by never allowing him to see his daughter again. Acht prepares Ilya for the Fifth Grail War, and instills upon her a great hatred for Kiritsugu and a mission to assassinate the Magus Killer and his adopted progeny Shirou.
Justeaze Lizrich von EinzbernEdit
|Justeaze Lizrich von Einzbern|
|Appears in:||Fate/stay night|
Justeaze Lizrich von Einzbern (ユスティーツァ・リズライヒ・フォン・アインツベルン, Yusutītsa Rizuraihi fon Aintsuberun?), known as the Saint of Winter, was a homunculus of the Einzbern family, who aided the Tohsaka and Makiri families in the creation of the Holy Grail War. Her family wished to have the Holy Grail after numerous failures, so they reluctantly agreed to work with the others under the guidance of Kischur Zelretch Schweinorg. Bestowed the title of archmagus, she was a powerful homunculus, who was essentially an enormous walking set of magic circuits and the designer of the Heaven's Feel system.
She was cold and aloof, and became the core of the Great Grail, in which she still lies. Successive models of homunculi descended from her, Illyasviel von Einzbern and her mother, Irisviel von Einzbern, each carry parts of her memories and personality, allowing them to access both when necessary. Ilya was able to access the record of the construction of the Greater Grail, and when speaking with Zouken Matou, who deeply loved Justeaze, Ilya takes on her personality.
Master (コペンハーゲンのマスター, Kopenhāgen no Masutā?) is the owner of the Copenhagen (コペンハーゲン, Kopenhāgen?), a liquor store and bar that has employed Shirou Emiya for five years. He is the father of Hotaruzuka Otoko, who is also employed there. He is very generous to Shirou when paying him, willingly paying him a weeks worth of pay for only three hours of work, and he was the only person to hire Shirou after Kiritsugu's death made him feel a responsibility to pay for his own expenses. He likes sweet foods while his daughter likes spicy food, making Shirou see them as a well balanced family.
Merlin (マーリン, Mārin?) is an incubus hybrid who serves as Altria's magus. He is an elderly man with an awful, childlike personality who is said to be a prankster and a womanizer. He is the cause of a number of problems, including stealing women's underwear, and the world would have been less chaotic had he not been so fond of pulling pranks. He was locked away because of his actions, but didn't regret it at all. He gave Arturia a penis for a duration of time, which allowed for the creation of Mordred from her sperm. He is shown speaking with Altria during the "Last Episode" of Fate/stay night where he warns her of how she will suffer once pulling Caliburn from the stone. He is also shown telling her that in order for her to be reunited with Shirou Emiya that two miracles must be created, one of them must wait endlessly and one of them must pursue endlessly.
Minori is somehow shy, but he might be also a bit aggressive, especially with people he doesn't really like or trust (like Shirou for instance). He does not show any particular affection to her sister, although he greatly loves and respects her.
Nagato Tohsaka (遠坂永人, Tōsaka Nagato?) was the founder of Tohsaka family of magi that began two hundred years ago during the founding of the Holy Grail War. He was considered to be a mage apprentice of Kischur Zelretch Schweinorg, but their overall relationship was odd. He was a hidden Christian despite it being banned in the Japan at that time, but was led astray by his master to become devoted to thaumaturgy. He was a mediocre, cold, bipolar, and much like his descendant, Rin Tohsaka, a goof-up, who could even make Zelretch exclaim "Hey, are you crazy or something?", but he was fundamentally good at heart. Zelretch considered him to be a man "willing to sacrifice himself for a better future."
He met with Zelretch while both were journeying, and as repayment for picking up the hotel bill, Zelretch taught him something in return. He can't truly be called an apprentice because Zelretch's role was more like that of a supervising teacher who is observing the students doing experiments from afar. The level of their relationship was that of a follower whom Zelretch looked out for every now and then. Despite this, he did leave Nagato the plans for the Jeweled Sword of Zelretch over more promising students like the Einzberns and Makiris due to them being fundamentally evil. Nagato's good nature made Zelretch think "this House will probably never accomplish anything great, but at least they will never stray from the righteous path." He then gave the design to Nagato and told him "alright, it will be a struggle, but work towards this goal". Surprisingly to him, it only took six generations to make it.
Nagato worked together with Makiri Zouken and Justeaze Lizrich von Einzbern to found the tradition of Holy Grail Wars. The Tohsaka family was, at the time, a family of martial artists, and Nagato believed that attaining emptiness through perfection of body was a way of reaching The Root. He eventually gave up that idea and dreamt of attaining the Root through the Holy Grail. They performed the initial ceremony with Zelretch present. His family maintained good relations with the Church, and also received fine treatment from the Mage's Association. Ties with both organizations are what allowed them to start managing Fuyuki, the land used to run the Holy Grail Wars. It is noted that his daughter contributed more in the construction of the Great Grail.
|Appears in:||Fate/Zero and Fate/Zero - Another Story: "Heart of Freaks"|
|Voice actor:||Akeno Watanabe|
|Character type:||Magus, Mixed-Blood|
Natalia Kaminski (ナタリア・カミンスキー, Nataria・Kaminsukī?) is a freelance mercenary who sold information concerning Noritaka and his research on vampires. She rescues a young Kiritsugu from Alimango Island and takes him as her apprentice. She hunts those magi who received a Sealing Designation and sells their Crests to the Mage's Association.
Natalia was the descendant of a half succubus and as such is she able to release all her preserved Prana, in her body, in one go. Natalia’s strength in her arms and legs, her endurance, her instantaneous force – all her bodily abilities are greatly amplified. It’s something similar to the enhancement of the body by means of rune magecraft, but for a much shorter period. But to compensate for that, Natalia used extreme violence. During her last mission, she is able to successfully kill a magus that could create Ghouls through the use of ghoul bees, but dies when Kiritsugu shoots down the plane she is on to prevent the infected passengers from killing others when the plane landed. Kiritsugu's last words to her reveal that he viewed her as his mother.
Due to her succubus lineage, she has some sexual characteristics that one would be inclined to exhibit. Normally a pupil like Kiritsugu would have acted as extra storage of magical energy in the form of his sperm, but she limited her interactions to only teasing and sexual harassment. Natalia never drained his semen as a succubus normally would because she had grown to love him.
Morgan le FayEdit
Morgan le Fay, also called Morgana, is the sister of Altria, King Arthur, and the mother of Mordred. Though Altria is her sister, Merlin's magecraft temporarily made her into a psuedo-male, allowing Morgan to enchant Altria with a spell to obtain sperm from her. She developed it within her own ovary to give birth to Mordred. She plotted to have Mordred become part of the Round Table while hiding her identity in order to one day have her overthrow the king. She eventually told Mordred of her birth, leading to her rebellion and the destruction of the kingdom.
Norikata Emiya (衛宮 矩賢, Emiya Norikata?) is the father of Kiritsugu and fourth head of the Emiya family. He is a genius who rose to the rank of receiving a Sealing Designation even though he is only the fourth generation, a relatively shallow generation compared more esteemed families. He managed to evade the enforcers for twenty years despite being actively hunted the entire duration of time, but his wife was slain by the enforcers shortly after Kiritsugu's birth. He eventually settled and hid a small southern island, Arimago Island, with Kiritsugu while working on a potion to make the drinker into a Dead Apostle, so that he may continue his work for as long as he needs with the immortality. He had Shirley working as his assistant, and due to her overeagerness, she drank one of his experimental potions. After the outbreak of the Dead on the island, he is assassinated by his son before he can escape and resume his research elsewhere.
He researched Time Manipulation, manipulation inside the body or possibly small cause-and-effect, in his quest to reach the Root as had his ancestors. The Emiya's magecraft works by accelerating or slowing the flow of time inside a Reality Marble free from the world’s interference. Thorough investigation lead him to the realization that a Bounded Field that was minimized until resistance was almost zero could allow the the flow of time to be accelerated without limit. He believed that reaching the Root was possible, right before observing the universe's end. While the theory was promising, such an experiment would have required hundreds of years to finish, leading him to resolve the issue of life span by exploring methods to become a Dead Apostle.
|Also known as:||Neko (nickname)|
|Appears in:||F/SN, F/HA, KnK|
|Voice actor:||Yuhko Kaida|
Otoko Hotaruzuka (蛍塚音子, Hotaruzuka Otoko?) is the daughter of the owner of a liquor store, The Copenhagen Bar. She dislikes her first name, which is phonically identical to the Japanese word for "male", preferring to be called "Neko" (ne being an alternative reading for oto). She feels attached to Shirou and always addresses him by a pet name, "Emi-yan". She has been friends with Taiga Fujimura since high school, and considers her to be a bad influence on her hard-working employee. In Kara no Kyoukai, the female drug dealer who gives Mikiya Kokutou information about underground activities and the identity of dealer who produces Bloodchips is also named Otoko Hotaruzuka. She is voiced by Yuhko Kaida.
Otoko is a serious minded person, although her behaviour might seem childish at times. She is always busy with her business and she really cares about it, but can be overly generous when money is involved. She is also over-protective of Shirou and she does not want him to follow wrong examples. She cannot really stand lazy people.
Perseus (ペルセウス, Peruseusu?) is a Greek hero known for killing the Gorgon Medusa with Harpe and later becoming the king of Mycenae. He is the son of Zeus, and the warrior most trusted by the gods at the time in the Greek world. He sought to challenge the monster to protect his fame and his mother, and traveled to the Shapeless Island that holds those exiled by the gods in order to claim its head. He was granted five Noble Phantasms, probably the most ever granted to a single warrior in the history of Greece, by the gods, which include Harpe, winged sandals, a mirror shield, a helmet of invisibility, and Kibisis, a bag to contain the beast's head. He gathered as much information as possible, formed a strategy to use his equipment, and sought out to gain glory and become a true hero. He was completely fearless until arriving at the island, where just the nature of the island's barrier made him uncertain of victory despite having gifts from the gods. He quickly began to lose any feeling of glory, and simply wished to slay the creature as soon as possible so he could leave. He felt complete dread upon meeting the Gorgon, believing his promised glory to be useless and victory to be impossible even with the holy relics.
He used the mirror shield to keep from being petrified by the creature's eyes and the sandals to avoid its strikes, entering into a battle of attrition without any real chance of victory. He felt a true hero might be able to kill a creature that could be called a demon god, but felt someone who was still trying to prove himself had no chance. The only way for someone who still had human nature to defeat the creature was to allow it to encage itself in its own barrier by using Kibisis to reflect it back on its wielder. The beast, frozen upon suffering its own nightmare, was open to an attack from Harpe, and transformed back to the form of Medusa to allow her head to be taken. Rider claims that she disliked Perseus and the fact that he was the one who killed her, calling him a brat, and felt no sympathy for him even though it could be said he was also a victim of the gods. He later became a great hero, but she describes him as a "successful Shinji Matou."
Raiga Fujimura (藤村雷画, Fujimura Raiga?) is the Oyabun (親分, Oyabun?) of a yakuza group operating in Fuyuki City, and is the grandfather of Taiga Fujimura. He was an old friend of Kiritsugu Emiya, and as a favor, manages Kiritsugu's estate after his death in place of Shirou Emiya. He enjoys sumo wrestling and hunting, and he will often give Shirou spending money for accompanying him to such events.
|Japanese name:||柳洞 零観|
|Appears in:||Fate/stay night|
Reikan Ryuudou (柳洞 零観, Ryuudou Reikan?) is Issei's older brother and a judo specialist. His personality is similar to that of Fate/zero's Rider and he is more broadminded than his brother. There have been times when he's asked Taiga for a date and then ended up in the hospital thanks to her father's subordinates.
Reikan is a very responsible person. Issei tries to act in the same manner and follows him as a role model. Reikan is very fond of martial arts, training frequently with Souichirou, and takes his role and his duties very seriously. He dislikes having a woman, Caster, living in the temple, but he does not dislike her.
Saber Lion is a parody of Saber featured as a playable character in Fate/tiger colosseum and Fate/tiger colosseum Upper, along with Carnival Phantasm. She is a small version of Saber dressed in a lion costume, and she is only able to growl "Gao!" to speak. She wields either Excalibur or a chunk of meat on a bone as a weapon.
Scathach (スカサハ, Sukasaha?) was the witch of the Land of Shadows, called a "scarier version of Tohsaka Rin", and Cu Chulainn's teacher. She was a person who became too close to the gods with a mortal body, and her existence began to be turned into a concept in the same way as Souren Araya. She was too skilled in the art of battle, too well versed in the arcane, and killed too many people, wraiths, and gods, which made her reach the point where even she could not take her own life. Her realm was essentially a land of the dead that is neither in the plane of the ethereal nor the plane of the living. She wished to die as a human being, and this situation is paralleled by Bazett's situation in the looped world.
Shirley is a girl who lived on the Alimago Island where Kiritsugu Emiya and Norikata Emiya took refuge. She never went to elementary school as a child, and she only relied on the teachings of the Christian priest at the mission. Due to the island's inferior education environment, it stimulated her ample intellectual curiosity, and through correspondence courses, she obtained a Master's Degree at the age of thirteen. She was four years older than Kiritsugu, and acted as Noritaka's assistant after he recognized her talent for learning.
She was given responsibility over various tasks of the Emiya father and son’s life on Alimago island, but she did not receive his teachings or become his disciple. She only learned the most basic of basics, and it may have been better if he had not concealed the identity of magic when he came into contact with her. Even at that level, her desire for knowledge allowed her to absorb Norikata’s words at an astonishing pace, giving him great expectations for her talent. This outstanding curiosity brought about a tragedy, following the proverb, "curiosity killed the cat."
She admired Noritaka's work and wished to succeed him even if the idea was impossible. When she drank a potion under development out of curiosity, she was transformed into a vampire and turned all of the villagers into ghouls. After being found by Kiritsugu, she plead for him to kill her, and while he was unable to do so, she eventually died. Taiga Fujimura seems to have Shirley's image, so Kiritsugu spoiled her more than necessary due to the resemblance to his first love.
Stheno and EuryaleEdit
Stheno and Euryale, along with their younger sister Medusa, were legendary beautiful sisters born from the wishes of mankind for ideal goddesses. Stheno and Euryale were perfectly immortal, while Medusa was growing older and taller through time. Stheno and Euryale would often tease and bully Medusa for that reason and due to her Mystic Eyes petrifying anybody she gazed upon. Despite this, they bore no malice, and actually cared for her deeply. After they were exiled to the Shapeless Isle due to meddling of Athena, Medusa grew bitter and spiteful of humans. With the passing of time, she took a fancy to killing and eating humans that were invading the Shapeless Isle as they were lured by Stheno and Euryale's beauty. This turned her into an icon of terror, and, as she was shaped by humanity's wishes, corrupted her nature into the legendary Gorgon and made her lose her divinity. Realizing they were partially responsible for her transformation, Euryale and Stheno allowed themselves to be devoured by the now monstrous Medusa.
The Stray Servant (はぐれ サーヴァント, Hagure Sāvuanto?) was one of the heroine candidates of Fate/stay night when Shirou had a larger harem. She was to be a servant with a shield who killed her master and stayed in the world after the end of the Fourth Grail War like Gilgamesh. She would have been an "abandoned puppy" heroine, and one of Saber's rivals.

Yukika is a shy girl, and the one that probably respects and worships Rin the most. She's very affectionate towards her younger brothers and she spends a lot of her free time looking after them.
Fate/side material - Sir Bedivere [Person] English | Japanese
AKA Sah Bedivere.
The knight who attended Arthur's death bed and the last of the knights of the round table. The one who returned the holy sword to the lady of the lake at the order of his king.
The usual image that pops up when people think of the knights of King Arthur, are Lancelot, Percival, and Galahad. But these guys were really newcomers that had originally been recruited for the Holy Grail expeditions. The oldest three and the most famous are Sir Kay, Sir Gawain, and Sir Bedivere.
Oh, and Sah didn't figure out that Arthur was a girl, you sah.
- ↑ >TYPE-MOON Fes. booklet - Q: Kirei's wife Ortensia is covered with wounds in the design draft, is it because she has a body similar to Caren's? Also, Command Spells appeared on Kirei due to the fact that he somehow possessed Magic Circuits despite being born in a non-magus lineage. Does this mean Caren also has Magic Circuits?
A: Kirei's wife is an albino, and is immune deficient. As a result, she can die from even a tiny wound, thus her body appears tattered. What Caren inherited is the aspect of "prone to be plagued by illnesses". This is truly an ordeal given by God.
About the Magic Circuits, a normal person rarely acquires Magic Circuits. You can consider such cases sudden mutations. However, Kirei is not of this type. Kirei's Circuits were a gift from the divine sacrament, rewarding his father Risei's years of pious worship. Kirei was born with "the right to recreate the miracles in the divine sacrament". This "right", in other words, was the Magic Circuits. Caren did not inherit the Circuits.

Q: Just what is Gazamy the Evil Spook thing that's been made out to be the top disaster in the Magic Association?
A: It's the name they call this magus that's locked in the bottom of the London Tower. Not that dangerous a person, but they say that no person has ever had a magic attribute as troublesome to magi as that. We'll eventually learn more of Gazamy probably.
Fate/Zero material - Kotone [Person]
Rin’s classmate, who was kidnapped by Gilles and Uryuu, umm…a girl with a muddled fate.
During the first draft, the name “Satsuki” was picked without thinking, the author forgot about Sacchin’s real name up until the original author’s punishment – he even forgot the fact that Sacchin had a real name.
Yumizuka Satsuki fans all over the world, we must respectfully apologize.
Kinoko: “Fujibuchi, be a little more considerate…”
Gen: “If she (the target of the teasing) is not called Satsuki, she’s not moe.”
Somehow this conversation happened but didn’t happen.

- ↑ Fate/complete material III - Tohsaka Nagato
Family head of the Tōsaka during the original planning of the Holy Grail War. He studied under Zelretch as a mage apprentice and dreamt of attaining the Root through the Holy Grail. Also, he was a Christian despite it being banned in the Japan at that time.(遠坂 永人 聖杯戦争設計当初の遠坂当主.ゼルレッチに師事したで魔術師,聖杯により根源へと至ることを夢 見ていた. 当時の日本では禁じられていたキリスト教の信者でもある.)
Fate/side material - Tohsaka Nagato [Person] English | Japanese
The head of the Tohsaka line back some 200 years ago when the Heaven's Feel ritual began.
At the request of Justeaze and Makiri Zolgen (Matou Zouken), he took part in the ritual.
He was really a secret follower of a certain foreign faith, but one day, a strange old fart showed up and led him astray. And so, from that time on, he became devoted to the world of thaumaturgy.
So as a result, the Tohsaka line has some influence in the Church and has gotten some pretty fine treatment in the Association. The reason the family's managing Fuyuki is because they have pipelines with both organizations.
Nagato saw both thaumaturgy and the martial arts as being equal. As such he had the idea of grasping Akasha by passing through the state of nothingness (from bujutsu). Which would be the point recruited by the Einzberns and Machiri.
Just by being Rin's ancestor, he's quite the goof-up (it must be the genes). Nagato was also the least promising of Zelretch's apprentices. Apparently, the magus potential was really in his daughter. She was also more helpful in the construction of the Greater Grail it seems.
TYPE-MOON Fes. 10th Anniversary Q & A: Q: Zelretch's pupils seemed to have all been turned into wrecks, so Tohsaka Nagato must be a wreck as well? >A: If the person is accepted as a "pupil of a Magician", he will be turned into a wreck, but if the person is accepted as a "pupil of a magus", then everything is fine. Nagato could not even be called a "pupil of a magus". From Zelretch's perspective, Nagato was but a follower whom he looked out for every now and then. ....They met during a journey, and Zelretch taught Nagato something as payment for the hotel bill. That is their level of relationship. It is sort of like a supervising teacher who is observing the students doing experiments from afar.
TYPE-MOON Fes. 10th Anniversary Q & A:Q: Why did Zelretch give the design of the Jewel Sword to Tohsaka Nagato, who had the least potential amongst his pupils?
A: This student Zelretch took during his journey was mediocre, cold, and bipolar. Even Zelretch exclaimed "Hey, are you crazy or something?" However, Nagato was a good man who is "willing to sacrifice himself for a better future". Although the Einzberns and Makiris were brilliant, they were fundamentally evil. Nagato was mediocre but good at heart.
Zelretch concluded that "this House will probably never accomplish anything great, but at least they will never stray from the righteous path". He then gave the design to Nagato and told him "alright, it will be a struggle, but work towards this goal".
Where there is a will, there is a way. The Tohsaka lineage stubbornly followed the teachings of the great master, and finally, after the gentlemanly Tokiomi, accomplished the impossible.

Fate/Zero material - Emiya Norikata [Person]
Emiya Norikata [Person]
Kiritsugu’s father. His family thaumaturgy involved time manipulation inside the body or possibly small cause-and-effect, and he was a genius who in only the fourth generation, a relatively shallow generation, rose to the rank of gaining a Sealing Designation.
Spent more than 20 years hiding from the pursuit of the Magic Association, and finally hid himself on a small southern island. Though Norikata’s wife died at the hands of the Magic Association’s hunters, Kiritsugu, who had just been born at the time, has no memory of the incident.
Accelerating or slowing the flow of time inside a Reality Marble free from the world’s interference is the thaumaturgy of the Emiya family. But after investigating it thoroughly, Norikata found that, in a Bounded Field that was minimized until resistance was almost zero, the flow of time could be accelerated without limit, and reaching the Root would be possible, right before observing the universe’s end. Although the theory itself was very promising, finishing the experiment would still require several hundreds of years. In order to resolve the issue of life span, he decided to explore the methods of becoming a Dead Apostle.
The tragedy that arose as a result was the story narrated at the beginning of Volume 4 of Zero.
- ↑ Fate/complete material III - World material - Q: It seemed like Shirou received some spending money for accompanying Fujimura Raiga on his hobbies. What are those hobbies?
A: Sumo wrestling and hunting.
Fate/Zero material - Shirley [Person]
A resident of Alimago Island, the island that Emiya Norikata chose to take refuge on. She did not attend even elementary school, and only relied on the teachings of the Christian priest. But even this inferior education environment stimulated her ample intellectual curiosity, and through correspondence courses she obtained a Master’s degree at age 13. This talent was recognized by Norikata, and he hired her as his assistant and gave her responsibility of various tasks of the Emiya father and son’s life on Alimago island.
She did not really receive Norikata’s teachings or become his disciple, for she was only taught the most basic of basics. It might have been better had Norikata not concealed the identity of magic when he came into contact with the girl, but even at that level, Shirley’s desire for knowledge allowed her to absorb Norikata’s words at an astonishing pace, and he himself had great expectations of her talent. However, just as the proverb “curiosity killed the cat” says, at the end this outstanding curiosity brought about a tragedy.
The first love of the not-yet-adolescent Kiritsugu. The kendo girl who he came across in his later years seemed to somehow have Shirley’s image, so he spoiled her a bit more than necessary.
