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.

ProfileEdit

IdentityEdit

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]

BackgroundEdit

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.


DoppelgangerEdit

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

AppearanceEdit

PersonalityEdit

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.
