Lancer's True Name is Romulus (ロムルス, Romurusu?), the founding hero of Rome that appears in Rome's foundation myth. Born from the God of War Mars and the beautiful princess Silvia, it has been said that he was raised with a beast of the gods, a wolf, as a friend. The King of Nation Building (建国王, Kenkoku-Ō?) who laid the foundations of the everglorious Great Empire of Rome that absorbed the Mediterranean nations. The deep crimson Divine Ancestor.
After triumphing in the battle against Amulius, the King of Alba Longa who deceived his grandfather Numitor for the throne and persecuted his mother Silvia, Romulus established the city-state of Rome in the Italian Peninsula instead of ruling over Alba Longa. And after overcoming the tragedy of him killing with his own hands his younger brother Remus, who fought in the Alba Longa war together with him, in a quarrel during the occasion of the founding of the nation as an act of jettison, he immediately absorbed the Mediterranean nations within the Great Empire of Rome, a nation that will boast a long-lasting glory.
The King of Nation Building that attained greatness, in his last moments, did not die, but rather had "disappeared". After storms and lightning broke out all of a sudden at a field nearby the Kapla marshes near the Campus Martius, Romulus' figure was erased. The people of Rome intepreted this anomalous phenomenon as "the Great Romulus had arrived at the queue to become a god due to the intentions of the God of War, Mars, who is his father" because of the words spoken by a farmer later on after Romulus' disappearance, and that became the conclusive intepretation. The farmer encountered Romulus after his "disapperance" at Quirinal Hill, and from the mouth of the King of Nation Building that attained greatness, he informed him that Romulus has now changed into a god referred to as Quirinus.
Quirinus. That is the name of an olden god purported to be among the ranks of Mars, the God of War, and Jupiter, the supreme being spoken of in Roman Mythology. The anecdote of this olden god was spread to the people of Rome, and the birth of this new god became unified with the King of Nation Founding.
Romulus first person pronoun is always "I (私, Watashi?) (Rome)".
Being a superhuman from birth, there is composure and presence of mind in him. Romulus' human nature is that of Rome itself, which rules the world. The Rome. Everything in Rome is the fruition of his own destiny, purpose and flesh and blood; those who were born in Rome and those who died for Rome are equally his own children. That is, he calls other Emperor Heroic Spirits related to Rome, such as Nero, Caesar and Caligula, as "my child" and loves them.
Towards Romans, Romulus is very kind. To all those who are not Roman yet interpret the nature of "the world exemplifes Rome", before long, he will interact with them kindly. That is, he is nevertheless kind to everyone.
Usually, Romulus has an air of composure around him, but he abandons himself in a blood frenzy to some degree and forgets about himself when he is well into battle. He has an aptitude for Berserker. Once in a frenzy, he is out of control.
It is possible for Romulus to talk together with animals far and wide, and it seems that he can clearly communicate with words towards wolves especially since he was raised together with them as sibilings. (However, with the exception of wolves, one cannot also deny the possibility of him simply starting a conversation towards animals to get into a good mood with them.)
Romulus believes Rome is the world; in other words, the world is nothing but Rome. In that case, human history is equal to the history of Rome. Therefore, the Divine Ancestor continues to offer patronage to his Master that fights for human history. "You too, are Rome!"
Romulus still has regrets regarding what happened to his brother Remus.
- "A child of Rome that is my beloved child. The glory of Rome itself that was in the end, brilliantly born. A child endowed with the talent to obtain the embodiment of the genuine Rome."
- The person who attempted to trample down Rome. However, that person surely hides Rome inside her. "... What can I say, the bust of Rome's Divine Ancestor is quite profound, is it not?" says Altera.
Septem: The Eternal Madness EmpireEdit
Before Chaldea arrived in the Singularity, Romulus was summoned by Lev Lainur Flauros, who tried to convince him to use the Holy Grail to destroy the era. However, Romulus rejects Lev's offer as he had absolutely no desire in destroying Rome. Eventually, he with the other Roman emperors summoned by Lev formed the United Roman Empire with him as the leader. He then launches campaigns against Nero's empire, which eventually results in his empire seizing half of her territories. Romulus eventually greets Nero when she and her army reaches the United Roman Empire's palace. He then attempts to convince the disheartened Nero to join his Rome, but she refuses his offer. He is soon confronted by Nero and Chaldea's group in the palace, where he meets his demise.
Salomon: The Grand Time TempleEdit
This Divine Ancestor is almighty, exhalted as the strongest Roman hero, and undoubtedly a Top Servant. Lancer's Noble Phantasm is Magna Voluisse Magnum and Moles Necessrie. His Personal Skill Septem Colles (七つの丘, Nanatsu no Oka?) grants blessings to those he recognizes as his "children", such as Roman emperors. He would originally possess a high ranking Divinity Skill, but he is intentionally sealing it away by means of Imperial Privilege due to his views on gods and humanity.
