Bartholomew Roberts (バーソロミュー・ロバーツ?) is a Servant appearing in the Grand Orders of Fate/Grand Order.

ProfileEdit

IdentityEdit

The Servant's True Name is Bartholomew Roberts (バーソロミュー・ロバーツ?).

The historical Bartholomew Roberts was killed by cannon fire.

AppearanceEdit

Salazar has dark skin, messy, dark blue-ish hair and bright blue eyes. He dresses in formal wear that consists of a white dress shirt and a black vest. He has a black collar and red fur on his left shoulder. He also wears black gloves and a fairly large golden cross.

Notably, he has a flintlock pistol stuffed into the right side of his vest and a sword dangling from the left side of his trousers. They are the few indications of his original life as a pirate.

PersonalityEdit

Roberts has a soft spot for women with peek-a-bangs, such as Mash. He drops heavy praises on her, claiming "the light of wisdom can be glimpsed between the gaps of her flaxen hair."

He is also rather polite, humbly accepting the role given to him during the play, whether it be a priest or an antagonist. It seems his acceptance of a role stems from a lack of purpose as he is bound to disappear soon. To be given a role makes his short life more worthwhile.

He is kind to everyone before and after he regains his memories, especially to Mash. He personally considers himself a "gallant man." It's to the point that even Ozymandias praises his nature.

RelationshipsEdit

Edward Teach
"Geh. That guy's also being a bother over there, huh."

RoleEdit

Fate/Grand OrderEdit

He is first mentioned by Blackbeard as a fellow pirate with a soft spot for women with peek-a-bangs.

A Study in the Dubious Meiho-souEdit

A year later, Roberts is summoned for the purpose of partaking in a play but nothing comes of it. With no memory of even his own identity and lacking a purpose, he decides to await his own destruction.

He has a chance encounter with the Servants of Chaldea, who offer to let him partake in a play they're trying to film. Since he lacks a name, Murasaki names him "Salazar" after one of the roles, which Roberts accepts. His role happens to be of a priest named "Father Salazar." Like Roberts himself, Father Salazar lacks memories and knows nothing of his past.

When Mash gives him encouragement, Roberts loses his train of thought for a moment. He then heavily thanks Mash for her kindness and wisdom. He considers the chance of meeting a girl as beautiful as Mash a reward in of itself. Mash feels strangely honored. Ritsuka chooses that moment to interrupt the pair and allow Roberts to begin honing his skills as an actor. Jeanne Alter outright questions why he is even here, to which Roberts has no answer.

The play gets interrupted when the director and scriptwriter, Murasaki, falls unconscious after consuming a drink containing grape juice. Suspicion falls on Roberts for he is the one who served the drinks. Mash quickly defends him, however. Roberts confirms he also did not prepare the drinks that poisoned Murasaki; he had merely fetched the tray containing the pre-prepared drinks. The film assistant, Moriarty, confesses to preparing the drinks but he denies any culpability. Holmes appears as a hologram to confirm the whole incident was an accident.

Once the misunderstanding is cleared up, Jeanne Alter, who had been certain Roberts or Moriarty were really guilty, chooses to apologize only to Roberts. However, an investigation continues and the question as to who Roberts is starts to become a major concern.

Sometime later, Ritsuka and Jeanne Alter suddenly remember what Blackbeard had said during the 2018 Summer event.

Ozymandias later grants Roberts the role of an assassin and antagonist named "Daizo." During filming, Roberts becomes deeply agitated when he hears the sound of cannon fire. His Spirit Origin rapidly changes until he becomes a giant ghost, forcing others to calm him down.

Once he is stable, Roberts reveals he became agitated because he had died by being struck by a cannon ball. Roberts then promptly introduces himself as Bartholomew Roberts.

Mash is surprised by this revelation, noting that he is unlike others pirates she has met. Moriarty laments that had Blackbeard been present from the beginning, Blackbeard could have identified Roberts, though Tristan recalls Blackbeard being unable to differentiate between the faces of males.

Suddenly, Roberts's body begins to disintegrate. He tells Mash not to worry because he is but "a gallant who shoulders the fate to disappear along with this singularity." He adds that his Saint Graph was already in cinders but the fight completely burned it up. He also tells Ritsuka not to worry either. He does consider himself rude for leaving before the filming is complete, however.

As a final farewell, he thanks Ritsuka for giving him a meaningful role before his inevitable disappearance and departs with words of affection for Mash.
