Assassin (アサシン, Asashin?) is the Assassin-class Servant summoned by Ritsuka Fujimaru in the Grand Orders of Fate/Grand Order.



Assassin's True Name is Jing Ke (荊軻, Keika?). She is known for the attempted assassination to the first emperor of China, Qin Shi Huang and only barely failed her mission. If not for the interference of some external factors, she may have changed the course of Chinese history.[1]

Jing Ke not only made a living out of assassinations, but also was a hedonist individual who loved reading, swordsmanship, chats with her wise friend and - more than anything - alcohol. Upon receiving a commission from Crown Prince Dan, from the State of Yan, to assassinate the First Emperor, Jing Ke cheerfully accepted and began planning how to assassinate the watchful Emperor.[1]

Having a present to offer the First Emperor, obtaining a knife dipped in poison meant for assassinations, but just before the time for implementing the plan came, Prince Dan began to doubt whether Jing Ke - who was awaiting for a friend that would throw his life away as an assistant in the assassination - "had not lost her nerve".[1]

Being under suspicion, Jing Ke had no choice but to depart to Qin with a man that the Crown Prince had recommended as her assistant. However, during the assassination attempt, the man who was supposed to support her became unable to move out of fear and Jing Ke had to pursue the assassination all alone; but maybe due to the Emperor's good luck, she failed to catch him by a narrow margin.[1]

« Ten steps left. I will kill him »

(Jing Ke)

It has been said that, having made her mind, Jing Ke was killed while scorning the First Emperor. Despite being an assassin, Jing Ke returned to dust without being able to accomplish her kill. Still, Jing Ke - who cheerfully accepted the request even while knowing she wouldn't return alive - was an individual who could be described as the world's chivalry.[1]

« Wind blow, river freeze.
The hero fords, never returns! »

(-- a poem by Jing Ke in the occasion of her parting)


Although history claims Jing Ke as a man, Jing Ke is actually a woman.[1]

Jing Ke is a slender woman with rather toned thighs. Her eyes are sharp and teal colored. Her black hair is tied slightly to the side into a long, thin ponytail that reaches her legs, with a few bangs over her forehead, and two longer ones on each side. Her nails appear to be painted in a grayish tone, and her feet wear sandals. Jing Ke's outfit consists of a seemingly multi-layered kimono, the most out of layers with wide trimmings with a floral pattern. A symbol of a lily is drawn over the waist area, underneath the blue and white sash. The sleeves of the Kimono are rather large, resembling a yukata. A piece of string is also tied around her waist.

In her second Ascension, the trimmings of Jing Ke's sleeves extend, she now wears a see-through ribbon similar to that of a Nio statue, and a Lily flower in full bloom lays on top of her head, off to the right side.

In her third Ascension, Jing Ke wears a chest armor piece held by a string, her left hand holds a grotesque, golden brown mask, and her right hand now holds her Noble Phantasm, the dagger Only For Killing.


Although famed for being an assassin, Jing Kei was also a hedonist individual, who loved reading, swordsmanship, chats with her wise friends and, more than anything, alcohol.[1]

Role Edit

Fate/Grand OrderEdit

Septem: The Eternal Madness Empire Edit

Jing Ke, along with Lu Bu, is a general serving under Nero Claudius. Before meeting Ritsuka and Mash Kyrielight, they had already killed three emperors of the United Roman Empire. On their way back to Rome though, they're attacked by enemy forces. After Ritsuka's party helps them, Jing Ke introduce herself and Lu Bu as generals under Nero. She also reveals they already killed three enemy emperors after being told of Chaldea's mission. Later, she scouts the location of the United Empire's capital that was provided by Stheno, and reports a carbon copy of Rome is located there. She participates in the battle between Nero's forces and the United Empire's forces when the former was marching onto the latter's capital. During the course of the battle though, the rear of the Nero's army is ambushed and struck by a pincer attack. Boudica is captured as a result, but Jing Ke quickly located her in an enemy fort. After Boudica is rescued, Nero's forces launch their assault on the United Empire's capital where they learn the leader is Romulus. Jing Ke and Boudica discuss how Romulus' incredible charisma has boosted enemy morale to the point where even mere civilians are fighting. After discussing Nero's loss of confidence, Jing Ke searches for a way to the palace. She later leads Ritsuka, Mash, and Nero to the throne room. There they defeat Romulus and meet Lev Lainur Flauros. He reveals his original plan was to give Romulus the Holy Grail to destroy era. Romulus refused though, so Lev manipulated events to destroy the era. He then transforms into Demon God Flauros, but the group eventually defeat him. Returning to his human form, Lev summons Altera and orders her to destroy Rome. She kills him though and absorbs the Grail into her body. She then proceeds to destroy the palace with her Noble Phantasm. Fortunately the group survive thanks to Mash and Boudica's quick use of their Noble Phantasm. They then chase after Altera to defeat her before she can destroy Rome. They eventually catch up to and defeat her before that can happen. After Ritsuka and Mash retrieve the Grail, Jing Ke and Boudica disappear when the era begins to restore itself.

Miss Almost Weekly Santa AlterEdit

While plotting another assassination attempt on Qin Shi Huang, Jing Ke is encountered by Julius Caesar, who gives her advice and persuades her to lend him her daggers. As result of this encounter she began drinking to annoyance of Saint Martha and Ushiwakamaru. Later, when Santa Alter came to deliver a present to her, Jing Ke appears when she hears being said by Ushiwakamaru after Santa Alter (calling her Jean Kay) asked for her. Utterly drunk, she is excited by the company, and asks Martha to cook an order seared beef along with some sea turtle soup. Martha however confronts her about how lazy she's become instead of being her usual gallant self, but Jing Ke merely begs for her to cook while also wondering how she cuts meat without a blade. She then, in her drunkenness, confuses Santa Alter for Ushiwakamaru for which the latter apologizes for. But, when Santa Alter reveals herself to be Santa Claus, Jing Ke, Martha, and Ushiwakamaru attack her with Jing Ke wanting a gift card for a good yakinku place. After Santa Alter defeats them, Jing Ke is given a talisman of Tokiomi Tohsaka that will help her do her job elegantly, and not panic before her target. She bursts into laughter at sight of Tokiomi's face, and says she'll assassinate him, commenting that he has a face that makes her want her to stab him in the back.

Salomon: The Grand Time TempleEdit

Jing Ke appears among the "Septem" Servants to help the Protagonist.


In her interlude The Wind is Strong and the River Cold, she asks Ritsuka and Mash to train with her in a simulated battle against [Qin Shi Huang. Before she confronts the emperor after defeating his soldiers, Jing Ke speaks of how she underestimated him in life, not expecting him to knock down her dagger and escape during her shocked state. After killing the emperor, Jing Ke says that she will sacrifice herself for Ritsuka's mission, and hopes that they will lament her loss.


Assassin's personal skills are Suppression (抑制, Yokusei?) and Planning (プランニング, Puran'ningu?). Her Noble Phantasm is Only For Killing.
