Avenger of Shinjuku (新宿のアヴェンジャー, Shinjuku no Avenjā?) is an Avenger-class Servant summoned by Ritsuka Fujimaru in the Grand Orders of Fate/Grand Order. They are initially Rider of Shinjuku (新宿のライダー, Shinjuku no Raidā?) before absorbing another Phantom and having their class change to Avenger.

ProfileEdit

IdentityEdit

Avenger's True Name is Hessian Lobo (ヘシアン・ロボ, Heshian Robo?).

ComponentsEdit

LoboEdit

Lobo (ロボ, Robo?), the King of Currumpaw, was an actual gray wolf (there are diverging opinions) whose name became widespread after being featured on Seton’sWild Animals I Have Known”. The story goes that he rampaged on the Currumpaw Plains, a vast American pasture, killing over 2,000 heads of cattle in the space of 5 years and slaughtering 250 sheep in a single night without eating them. Naturally, the ranch owners attempted to bring him down by employing all sorts of methods (from poison, to guns and even traps), but supposedly Lobo paid no mind to those. Employed as a famous hunter, Seton came up with an idea: instead of directly facing Lobo (who was feared as “the devil incarnate"), he would make use of his mate - the white wolf Blanca. The curious Blanca was caught in a bear trap and killed by humans. Seeking his mate’s corpse, Lobo was finally caught in a trap. It has been said that the captured Lobo refused all meals from humans and died just like that.[1]

HessianEdit

Hessian (ヘシアン, Heshian?) refers to the German mercenaries that came to America after being hired by the British government, and the nameless mercenary that rides Lobo was also one of them. Still, the story goes that he got his head blown off after receiving a cannon fire and, without realizing that he was already dead, began to roam about on Sleepy Hollow.[1] He became known as the "Headless Horseman" in the The Legend of Sleepy Hollow.

Dr. Jack GriffinEdit

As they are unstable as a Servant due to both of them being Phantoms, they fuse with several more Phantoms. One such Phantom is Dr. Jack Griffin (ジャック・グリフィン博士?), granting them invisibility. While he does not appear to have any influence, there are three individuals listed under the "Gender" section of their status page.

AppearanceEdit

Unlike actual history, the King of Currumpaw surpasses over 3m in length.[1]

PersonalityEdit

Mutual understanding and the likes are impossible. What we have here is a beast that scatters hatred.[1]

While most mounts typically obey the will of their rider, who makes all the decisions in whatever tasks, the Hessian Lobo is the opposite where the mount makes the decisions and the rider simply obeys whatever decision the wolf makes. The relationship between the nameless mercenary and the King of Currumpaw seems to be on a minimally cordial level. While Lobo initially doesn't like the idea of having someone riding his back, the wolf finds the warrior's existence to be beneficial as he cooperatively kills all of Lobo's enemies without complaint. While Lobo has never opened up to the headless rider, only thinking him as a tool, the nameless mercenary seems to care about Lobo as he willingly chose to fight enemies, alone, to let an injured Lobo escape. 

RoleEdit

Fate/Grand OrderEdit

Shinjuku Phantom Spirit Incident: Malignant Quarantined Demonic RealmEdit

Death Jail Summer Escape ~Medb's Great Bastille of Guilt and Despair~Edit

Other appearancesEdit

Lobo is mentioned in Kagetsu Tohya during The Tohno Family Con Game parody story. Nrvnqsr Chaos offers his "beloved dog Courtaud", mentioning he can offer Lobo or Bete should that be enough.

AbilitiesEdit

Hessian rides Lobo into battle, wielding a pair of hook blades. Hessian Lobo is a very powerful servant. As Rider of Shinjuku, his Spirit Origin was described as enormous by Mash. He also boasts impressive speed capable of reaching up to 200 kilometers per hour.[3] In this form he was so strong that Artoria Alter's Wind was required to give him a fatal blow and make him retreat.[4]

After absorbing another Phantom, his Spirit Origin was altered and his class was changed to Avenger, significantly increasing his power even though Archer of Shinjuku considered that calling it a Demonic Beast after having Fujimaru fought Tiamat and her offspring in Babylonia would be a disservice. Its speed was also greatly increased, and he became so strong that Saber Alter, Jeanne Alter, Sherlock Holmes, and James Moriarty came to the conclusion that one of them would have to sacrifice their self in order for the rest to escape. In the end it was Jeanne Alter's La Grondement Du Haine the attack that slowed him down long enough to allow the others to retreat.[5] Finally, Ritsuka's Party came up with a trap that ended up succeeding in defeating avenger.[6]

Class SkillsEdit

Avenger (A Rank): Come what may, still humans shall be annihilated.[1][2]
Oblivion Correction (B Rank): That hatred shall never, ever be forgotten. Like a small, unsightly scar carved unto the history of man, it shall remain for eternity.[1][2]
Self-Replenishment (Mana) (B Rank): For as long as he exists in the world made by humans, he shall continue to devour his feed with hatred as his fangs.[1][2]

Personal SkillsEdit

Fallen Demon (A+ Rank): A Skill given to mystical beasts and fallen ones - specifically, those of a man-made demonic nature, unattainable through natural means. It improves defense power, resistance against abnormal status, and so forth, though the ability slightly falls short to Natural Monster.[1][2]
Monstrous Strength (B Rank): A skill, born from the holder's nature as a monster or Demonic Beast, that temporarily grants a rank-up to their Strength parameter for a limited time, determined by the skill's rank.[7][8][9]
One Cloaked in Death (A Rank): It comes from how the German mercenary (Hessian) that becomes the rider had been reduced into a monster reaching Dullahan. Lobo’s vengeful desire becomes a tangible armor, making it possible for offense.
Animal Communication(A Rank): A communication of intention with animals that do not speak a 'language of words.[10]

Noble PhantasmEdit

Hessian Lobo's Noble Phantasm is Frieren Scharfrichter.[1][2]

DevelopmentEdit

Shimokoshi is the character illustrator for Hessian Lobo.[1]
