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.

ProfileEdit

IdentityEdit

Lancer's True Name is Nezha (哪吒, Nata?). An elite general of Heaven, the Marshal of the Central Altar: Prince Nezha. Although befallen a tragic death in the mortal world, her rebirth occurred through a lotus flower. Famed for defeating and sealing the demons of the Ninety-Six Caverns, and is the greatest rival (self-proclaimed) of the Great Sage Equal to Heaven, Sun Wukong.[1]

Originally known by the name of Nalakūbara, a lower tier deity of Hindu mythology as well as the guardian god of Buddhism, he was eventually conveyed to China and became accepted into Taoism as the God of Young Boys: Prince Nezha. In modern days, she has been worshipped by many across central China and the East Asian regions. He debuted as a major character in "The Investiture of the Gods". In “Journey to the West”, she was first seen intercepting Sun Wukong who was causing a rampage across the heavens, subsequently being sent by the Heavenly Emperor to assist the group of Master Sanzou during their trip on multiple occasions.[1]

From the beginning, Nezha was not human. Born with a gem that was dropped down to the human world by an immortal of Mt. Kunlun, Taiyi Zhenren, as her core, she has an awkward existence as both a human and an immortal. From birth, she had magical items such as the Qian-Kun Quan (Universe Ring) and the Hun-Tian Ling (Red Armillary Sash). Nezha subsequently received other magical items from Taiyi Zhenren: the Demon-Slaying Sword, the Phantom-Slaying Blade, the Ghost-Binding Rope, the Evil-Conquering Staff, the Embroidered Sphere, the Wind Fire Wheels, as well as the Fire-Tipped Spear. While Nezha was growing up in the human world, she was not wicked, but she was an arrogant and violent child. Accused of polluting the river, she killed the accusing god and even his superior god. Soon after, as she was blamed for bringing disaster to her human parents, she was compelled to commit suicide.[1]

After that, through twists and turns, Nezha was revived as the spirit of a lotus. The resurrection was not only by the effort of Taiyi Zhenren, but also with the assistance from Shaka Nyorai.[1]

AbilitiesEdit

  • Universe Ring

Summoned as a Lancer, Nezha carries a strong personality as a guardian of Buddhism as seen in "Journey to the West". Perhaps she could have been a Berserker if she was summoned as the Nezha that lived just before committing suicide, where she had the brutality of a cruel nature.[1] Her Noble Phantasm is Flying Quiet Spirit - Fire-Tipped Spear.
