Lancer Purgatorio (ランサー・プルガトリオ, Ransā Purugatorio?) is a Lancer-class Servant able to be summoned by the Protagonist in the Grand Orders of Fate/Grand Order.

ProfileEdit

IdentityEdit

Lancer's True Name is Houzouin Inshun (宝蔵院胤舜, Hōzōin Inshun?). It can be a spear to thrust, a naginata to cleave, a sickle to slash; in any case, it never fails to hit the target—such is the famous cruciform spear of the Houzouin. Houzouin Inshun is the second generation master of the Houzouin-ryuu spearmanship, and a man whose skill is extolled as reaching the gods and buddhas.[1]

Houzouin Inshun was born as Mitsuda Gennosuke (満田源之助, ?). As the successor of the Houzouin, he received lectures in the ways of monks and spearmen from In'ei, founder of the Houzouin-ryuu spearmanship. At the time, the Houzouin spear was already widely known thanks to In'ei. That is because the one who improved the base spear that until then was served only for thrusting - bringing forth the ground-breaking cruciform spear that could slice, sweep and knock, in addition to thrust - was this In'ei.[1]

However, In'ei abandoned the spear. “It is not proper for one who serves Buddha to learn spearmanship.” “If you intend to serve Buddha, you should abandon the spear.” He died at the age of 87, while leaving such words for his successor, Inshun.[1]

However, Inshun did not give up on spearmanship. A member of the Houzouin should walk on both the path of Buddha and the path of the spear—like this, he revived the Houzouin-ryuu spearmanship.[1]
