Assassin of Shinjuku (新宿のアサシン, Shinjuku no Asashin?) is an Assassin-class Servant summoned by Ritsuka Fujimaru in the Grand Orders of Fate/Grand Order.

Profile[edit | edit source]

Identity[edit | edit source]

Assassin's True Name is Yan Qing (燕青, En sei?). Yan Qing was an outlaw who joined the Grand Assembly of the 108 Stars of Destiny during the latter half of Water Margin, one of the Four Great Classical Novels of Chinese literature. He was a short and handsome man with prodigious skill in both the martial arts and music, who entered the Great Assembly with his lord, Lu Junyi.[1]

Of course, Yan Qing was a fictional character, but he is still known as a founding master of the Yan Qing school of martial arts, even outside of Water Margin. While the martial art’s origin story is itself a fiction, this famed outlaw’s renown as the founder of a martial art has boosted his importance.[1]

Background[edit | edit source]

A fictitious fine fellow who appears in the “Water Margin”. While he had been an orphan from the beginning, he was picked up and raised by the wealthy Lu Junyì.
It had seemed that Lu Junyi’s love towards him was out of ordinary, that a theory had said that Lu Junyi had love to Yan Qing no less than he had his wife.
Yan Qing, who had grown into a fairskinned and graceful young man of small stature, together entered the Liang Shan Bo, displaying great efforts no less than his lord.
The Liang Shan Bo before long became the representation of the loyalist army and went impoverished. Due to that, Yan Qing, afraid of being thrown away due to having served his purpose, encouraged Lu Junyi to escape together with him., but Li Junyi, who had been scheduled to receive an award, paid him no mind.
The weeping Yan Qing then escaped Liang Shan Bo alone, his whereabouts afterwards unknown.
In Water Margin, he was one of the few survivors. However, surely enough, none knew whether or not that is what he had wished for.


Doppelganger[edit | edit source]

Through the machinations of Baal, Assassin has absorbed the abilities of the Phantom Doppelganger (ドッペルゲンガー?).

Appearance[edit | edit source]

Personality[edit | edit source]

A bright and friendly figure.
Due to being a ruffian, he is rebellious against the powers that be; but in regards to the Master he would attend to him/her in complete sincerity.

However, should the Master be someone excessively violent in attitude, he would probably either go away or otherwise attempt to break and train them into a good lord.
He is fundamentally sincere, handling the Master like a teacher would.
Ever bright and proficient in artistic skills, should the Master request of it he would probably play an instrument and so forth.
However, his true nature is the outlaw who stretched all the way to Liang Shan Bo, a man who pursues freedom.

Role[edit | edit source]

Fate/Grand Order[edit | edit source]

Shinjuku Phantom Spirit Incident: The Malignant Quarantined Demonic Realm[edit | edit source]

Yang Qing was part of the Phantom Demon Alliance in the Shinjuku Singularity, fused with the Phantom Doppelganger. He was disguised as Hassan of the Cursed Arm during his initial encounter with Ritsuka Fujimaru, in order to create and seize an opportunity to kidnap them.[3]

Abilities[edit | edit source]

Prior to the arrival of Chaldea at the Shinjuku Singularity, he defeated and killed Hassan of the Cursed Arm

Skills[edit | edit source]

Yan Qing's Class Skill is Presence Concealment (C). His Personal Skills are Ruffian (A), Chinese Boxing (EX(A+++)), Espionage (A), Skillful Star (A+) and Doppelgänger (EX).[1][2]

Chinese Boxing (中国拳法, Chūgoku Kenpō?, Zhong Guo Quan Fa in Chinese) is a Chinese Martial Arts style utilized by Yan Qing.

Espionage (諜報, Chōhō?) is a skill which does not conceal the user’s presence, but rather makes the user's presence fail to register as hostile.[4]

Skillful Star (天巧星, Tenkōsei?) is a skill denoting Yan Qing as one of the 108 Stars of Destiny, who were reborn as heroes. Because of his past incarnation as a demonic overlord, he was born with a calamitous karmic burden. Yan Qing was the Skillful Star, who excelled at the exquisite.[1]

Doppelgänger is a skill connected to Yan Qing's fusion to the Phantom Doppelgänger, which allows him to assume the appearance of others as well as some of their abilities.[2][3]

Noble Phantasm[edit | edit source]

Yan Qing's Noble Phantasm is Ambushed from Ten Sides - As If There Was No Shadow (十面埋伏じゅうめんまいふく無影の如くむえいのごとく, Jūmenmaifuku Muei no Gotoku?, Shi Mian Mai Fu - Wu Ying Zuo Wei in Chinese) which delivers strikes from duplicates generated by the unique footwork of the Yan Qing Style. While not reaching the realm of Magic, it is a series of visually imperceptible attacks to the average observer, and the user of the technique is said to not even cast shadows on the ground.[1]

Development[edit | edit source]

Shimaudon is the character designer for Yan Qing.[1]

    Type: A

    Profile
    A star in the firmament, and a rascal in the land.
    The man who was supposed to be just an illusion was generated together with his kenpou(1).
    Well then, who am I!?

    Level 1 Bond
    Height/Weight: 171cm・63kg
    Source: Water Margin
    Region: China
    Alignment: Chaotic Evil  Gender: Male
    The star that he was burdened with is the Skillful Star

    Level 2 Bond
    Yan Qing is one of the ruffians introduced in the later-half of the Water Margin - a story that depicted the chivalrous thieves of Mt Liang, and one of the Four Great Classical Novels of Chinese literature. Despite his small build, he has a handsome countenance, outstanding martial skills and exceled in performance with musical instruments. Joined the band of Mt Liang together with his lord, Lu Junyi.

    Level 3 Bond
    Naturally, he is a fictitious existence, but even in places far removed from the Water Margin, his name became well known as the founder of the Yanqingquan - a school of Chinese kenpou.
    Of course, the whole founder thing was just a deception, but to push up a famous ruffian as the founder of a kenpou also held the nuance of adding value to it.(2)

    Level 4 Bond

    • Skillful Star: A+

    One of those who are the reincarnations of the 108 stars said to bring misfortune.
    A reborn demonic star, he is burdened with calamity and karma since his birth.
    Yan Qing is the Skillful Star, which is extremely outstanding in being elaborate.

    Level 5 Bond
    "Ambush from Ten Sides - As if Shadowless"
    Rank: A  Type: Anti-Unit Noble Phantasm
    Range: 1~3  Max Targets: 1 person
    Shi Mian Mai Fu(3).
    A clone(4) strike by means of the Yanqingquan’s peculiar movement techniques.
    Although it has not reached the level of Magic, in the eyes of third party this would look like a combo by means of high-speed movement that simply cannot be grasped.
    Such style was indeed a state in which not even a shadow would be projected on the ground, or something.

    Interlude
    ???

    (1) roughly “pugilism”

    (2) basically, it is just like modern day propaganda: you establish a connection between a product to someone famous in order to boost its appeal to the masses.

    (3) roughly “ambush from ten sides”

    (4) it pains me to say, but this really is just like that ability from Naruto
