Archer (アーチャー, Āchā?) is a Archer-class Servant able to be summoned by Ritsuka Fujimaru in the Grand Orders of Fate/Grand Order. Before renouncing his title, he is Grand Archer (グランドアーチャー, Gurando Āchā?).
Orion is a child born between the sea god Poseidon and Euryale (a different person from the goddess Euryale). He, who boasted he could bring down any beast, was one day deprived of both eyes due to some trouble related with women. Relying on the sound of a hammer he began rowing into the sea on a small boat, and had his eyesight restored with the influence of the goddess of dawn Eos, who he knew. …Note that this incident had already risen a dangerous flag with the goddess.
When his little sister Artemis fell in love with Orion, her big brother and Sun god Apollo, who had a sense of danger, incited Artemis to shoot down Orion, who was at the sea, saying “You’re an expert at bows, but can you shoot down that man called Candaon?”. It is said that Artemis magnificently shot through her beloved Orion, and hugged the dead body while mourning him. She thought about making Asclepius, who could even revive the dead, revive him, but Asclepius was killed by Zeus’ thunder before he could bring him back to life.
Helpless, Artemis sublimated Orion into stars. When it’s winter, the shining three stars (Tri-Star) can be seen. Those are said to be Orion’s belt.
“Isn’t the summoned me a bit too baby-faced? Don’t I look more cute than cool? I don’t? I’m perfectly fine? I see.”
He’s a hardcore playboy… but, most importantly he’s a very cheerful… pitiful… human full of drama that was loved by the moon goddess Artemis.
