ProfileEdit

IdentityEdit

Saber's True Name is Gaius Julius Caesar (ガイウス・ユリウス・カエサル, Gaiusu Yuriusu Kaesaru?). One of the greatest heroes of ancient Rome.[2] A person of the 1st Century BC.[1] An outstanding sovereign and a general that made a name for himself in the Gallic Wars and the Britannia Expedition. A descendant of the goddess Venus, it has been said that this womanizer had a child with a fairy that was far from human.[2] He is also known by his English name Julius Caesar.[1]

HistoryEdit

A superpower that continues to struggle with power struggles and wars, its name is Rome. Being the world’s largest assembly, if one wants to climb the ranks, not only does one need strength based on a sword of a savage tribe of a savage land, but it is also necessary to sharpen one’s intellect by means of conflict. An enormous vortex of cruelty.[1]

Then, Caesar was born————[1]

The current state of the Roman ruling classes is that they kill and are killed, incidentally by means of trickery. Although he was temporarily away from the capital of Rome, Caesar himself chose to plunge into the vortex of conspiracies after Roman dictator Sulla died. His first move was applying an impeachment of the governor-general for his corruption and oppression of the people of the Roman provinces. Bringing him down with nothing but his speech, Caesar additionally, even during the time of the Roman consul that had tremendous support and popularity, advocated with his voice, words, hand movements and bodily gestures that the government should not be instigating on the good will of the Roman citizens by means of evil intentions. His truth has become his sword, and surely his tongue as well.[1]

  • Commentarii de Bello Gallico (ガリア戦記, Garia Senki?)

Nights passes where he schemed to kill his enemies while protecting his life. These two objectives were being repeated. After continually coming out favorably in his successful career, he took up a new post as Roman governor of Hispania Tarraconensis. Then, after carrying out a triumphant return from bringing down the Orient and promptly defeating numerous powerful resistances that have yet to obey the Romans, Caesar became a Roman consul. Thus commences the origin of the First Triumvirate, the Gallic Wars. Repeatedly suppressing and crushing his oppositions such as the Gauls, the Belgae, the Germanics and the Aquitanians, and occasionally having hard battles during his strikes on Britannia, Caesar took and subjugated the whole land of Gaul over several years. He won the title of the strongest general and received tremendous support from the masses. After the death of one of the three triumvirs, Crassus, the other triumvir who remained, the great commander Pompey, parted from Caesar and was later assassinated. Caesar then became the most powerful person in Rome in both name and reality.[1]

And then, he met her. In Alexandria, the capital city of Egypt. It was love at first sight on Cleopatra, the ceremonial wife of Ptolemy XIII Theos Philopator of whom they are joint rulers, but the former worthy enough to be a queen. He himself was 40 years old while his companion was a young girl, separated by 20 years in age. His steel resolution started to creep into his foundation, this being by no means his feelings for her. Speaking of the characteristics of her beauty, her heightened pride regards her own people and country, and now, it is as if that temperament and pride became her form. Upon seeing that, Caesar swore to protect the beautiful young queen. For him who freely proceeded with marriages and divorces to come about his purposes of political strife, and for him who was handed many women for him to flirt with, this was his first love.[1]

Together with Cleopatra, Caesar dreamt of the second coming of the powerful “Roman Egyptian Empire” that King Iskandar once accomplished. Subjugating Egypt and removing Ptolemy XIV, he invaded every kingdom near Egypt one after another and gained total control of the Roman Senate faction lurking secretly in their countries. After gaining total control of Hispania, he finally accomplished the subjugation of the Roman Republic. Caesar reigned over ancient Rome as the first lifetime Roman dictator. He tells his beloved queen: “There is no one who will hinder me. I seized all of Rome. As soon as the expedition of the Kingdom of Parthia is successful, I will certainly and officially welcome you as my wife and announce to the world far and wide of our son Caesarion.[1]

But, it was not done. Caesar truly did have all of Rome in his hands, but the vortex of cruelty surrounding Rome, becoming something like a curse, did not allow love and peace to continue every day. That is, it came in the form of a single blade. At the Theatre of Pompey, Brutus, a loyal retainer of his who became a tool for the remnants of the Roman Senate faction, raised overhead a single knife————[1]

A cunning man. An ambitious person that excels in trickery.[2] His gaze is perceptive and it hides a dangerousness and bottomlessness that one cannot neglect.[1] Endowed with a large ambition and frightening intelligence, Caesar is a master of speech and ingenuity.

He has a habit of repeating similar words three times in a row.[2]

Caesar does not regret his past life that was filled with the numerous trickeries he committed so long as he lives, even if those trickeries were what lead him to his death. However, as he deeply regrets having made his beloved Cleopatra cry for he believed that he had treated her cruelly, he thought that “it was troublesome” to unravel plots until he became a Heroic Spirit and Servant.[1][3] His wish for the Holy Grail is to “reunite with Cleopatra and recognize both her and his son Caesarion”, because he would scheme before long, among other things.[1][2] However, he has grown tired of scheming and backstabbing.[3]Enough of conspiracies. Just let me hug my boy, my boy.[2]

Caesar claims that the incident in Gaul is what made him mature. The battlefield is not something he could bring himself to love. He realized it was human nature to love the ideals of peace and tranquility.
