Rocco Belfaban (ロッコ・ベルフェバン, Rokko Berufeban?) is the head of the Department of Summoning in the Mage's Association.

ProfileEdit

BackgroundEdit

Rocco is the dean of the "Department of Summoning" in the Clock Tower.[1] He is said to have held his position for over fifty years, but no one is certain of the fact.[2] Rocco is part of the conservative party in the Clock Tower. Status-wise, he is effectively a “proxy Lord”.[1] According to Rohngall, Rocco Belfaban represents "the stubborn old guard".[3]

The Department of Summoning is a subordinate organization to the Department of Spiritual Evocation, which ended up being regarded very highly only in the "Apocrypha" universe. It was decided to treat "everything related to Servants of the Holy Grail War" under the category of "summoning", entrusting all responsibility to an assured conservative in the Association. Although Rocco and Lord El-Melloi II are part of two opposing factions, both of them are well aware of the threat of subspecies Holy Grail Wars, and their views match in that they prioritize resolving the situation over the gains for their respective factions.[1]

AppearanceEdit

He is a short old man, straight-backed and the creases on the skin of his face gleam as if he were a statue carved of wood.[2]

PersonalityEdit

Rocco is a collection maniac, and yet by contrast is quite sloppy with what he collects. He’s the type to be completely neglectful by using Mystic Codes that activate just by having them on hand. He has stated in quite a carefree manner, “It’s fine as long as I have just Mystic Codes that resist against curses”. He doesn't involve himself much with the students, so there are lots of rumors like “The old man’s private room is becoming more and more of an entirely different world every year” about him.[1]

RoleEdit

Fate/ApocryphaEdit

Rocco, Bram Nuada-Re Sophia-Ri and Lord El-Melloi II discussed about the recent failed operation against Yggdmillennia in Trifas. With the Yggdmillennia announced them possessing the Greater Grail, the Mages Association responded and sent fifty specialized magi 'hunters'. However, everything was ruined by Lancer of Black who annihilated forty-nine magi. With the last magus adjusted the Greater Grail to summon additional Servants. When Rocco asked for Lord El-Melloi II opinion, he suggested to alter their approach for a counterattack. Lord El-Melloi II believes victory can be successful if they assemble seven Masters. El-Melloi II suggested to bring in the professionals from the outside and the Clock Tower must provide at least one or two magi as this Holy Grail War is on an utterly different scale. The three men are the people overseeing the selection of Masters for the Great Holy Grail War. The three men went separate ways.[2]

He personally hires Kairi Sisigou, and debrief him about the situation. He informs Kairi about the other Masters; Rottweil Berzinsky, Jean Rum, Pentel brothers and Feend vor Sembren. Although he tries to pass it off as a forgery, reluctantly parts with the hydra as part of the payment.[2]

Other appearancesEdit

He was briefly mentioned by Rohngall in Fate/strange fake.[3]

AbilitiesEdit

He has a number of items in his collection, including a skull that looks like a chimera of ape and elephant, a scroll over one thousand years old, and a preserved juvenile hydra.[2]
