ProfileEdit

IdentityEdit

Lancer's True Name is Jaguar Man (ジャガーマン, Jagā Man?), a Pseudo-Servant summoned into the body of Taiga Fujimura.

Jaguar Man is a Divine Spirit of old handed down on Central and South America. The jaguar is, namely, a symbol of “war” and “death”, an existence revered for a long time on the Central and South American civilizations of all periods, and it has been said that, in the past, it would reveal itself to the world from time to time. In the Olmec civilization of the Preclassic Period, the jaguar deity was a mixed-blood of human and jaguar. Deified in the shape of a jaguar-human (jaguarman/werejaguar) and the likes. In the mythologies of Central and South America, it is often described as an spiritual existence called nagual, a shadow and a supernatural Guardian Spirit. It has been said that Tezcatlipoca, one of the chief gods worshiped in the Aztec civilization, is also endowed with a nagual - a fearsome jaguar nagual. In this work, Jaguarman is syncretizing the aspects as a nagual of Tezcatlipoca, which draws from its own genealogy, while being endowed with the disposition as a divine spirit of old.[1]

The jaguar nagual has accomplished a manifestation as a bunrei by turning a specific human into its vessel. From time immemorial, it has been said that humans who acquired the jaguar nagual were endowed with supernatural powers. The nagual tales are told even in modern times. In addition, regarding the criteria for selecting the vessel, Taiga carried the most power of the wildness among all humans connected to the Holy Grail was elected. Because it belongs to the lower class among the divine spirit-type of Servants, its selling point is the fact it cost very little.[1]

AppearanceEdit

Gender belongs to the possessed human.[1]

PersonalityEdit

Alignment belongs to Jaguarman, not the possessed human. No matter how one looks at it, the personality of the possessed body is the main one, but one should not point that out.[1] She is seen to have a mischievous and fun time around Chaldea with Irisviel, and reveals herself to be a love interest for Kiritsugu.

RoleEdit

Fate/Grand OrderEdit

It is unknown why it attempted to manifest in this world. Maybe it came while being attracted by Quetzalcoatl, maybe it came as if coming out to play, maybe it came while stealing a march on Tezcatlipoca when it tried to come out, etc - truly intriguing.[1]
