|Billy the Kid|
His real name is William Henry McCarty Junior. A representative outlaw from the American Wild West, even in modern times his popularity is extremely high. From the fact that one of his few remaining pictures was put for a price of two hundred million yen in an auction, one can perceive said popularity. His father is unknown, but it seems that he received a higher education from his mother and, considering he was a Western outlaw, he left behind some skillfully written letters.
When he was 12-years old, the curtain raised for his life as an outlaw when he stabbed a man to death who insulted his mother. Since then, he accumulated crimes of cattle thief and robbery at the same time he took jobs of escort of goods and the likes. He was the type who would pick quarrels at random with the other outlaws whenever he was in town, but, before anyone knew, he started to have a smile plastered in his face and tried to avoid trouble.
Although he was accepted by the citizens thanks to his tactful attitude, but maybe due his fate as an outlaw, he ended up being dragged into the cartel-war of John Tunstall, the farm owner who employed him. As a result of this conflict, which is commonly called the Lincoln County War, Kid ended up being arrested by his one-time friend - Sheriff Pat Garrett.
Still, he escaped in less than a year. Sheriff Pat Garret vindictively attempted a pursuit, finding him on Fort Sumner, New Mexico. Maybe he thought that he couldn't even in an open gunfight, or maybe there was some other reason--. When Billy left his room to seek some food, Pat Garrett performed a sneak attack on him.
The Juvenile Rascal King, said to have killed 21 people by the time he was 21 years old. Some ten years or so after his death, the Wild West age met its de facto end. The outlaws were treated as mere criminals and the frontier was taken into the framework of the state.
Or maybe, the very existence known as Billy the Kid itself was the symbol of the Wild West, and his death indicated the demise of the age when outlaws could willfully live as they pleased.
Jovial, yet harsh. The strongest and fastest gunner who is abundant in childishness. That is the ostensible nature of the “boy” named Billy the Kid. A rebellious behavior cannot be assumed from his appearances when he is coming into contact with his Master in an affable manner. However, that is simply his outward appearance. In reality, he is in all respects cold and pragmatic, and his smile is nothing more than something he was born with that has been stuck to his face since then.
Billy is impulsive, but he is not foolish. Having received a higher education as it is from his mother, he is proficient at the part where he judges things rationally. In relation to that, it is often expressed in his most famous shooting episode too.
At first, Billy comes into contact with his Master cheerfully. Meanwhile, he carefully observes them, and if his Master is the type to regard themselves as the “superior”, then there is no need for his smile to disappear. If it is the case that his Master sees Billy as a “comrade-in-arms” or a “partner” however, Billy will drop that mask, and while he is seemingly brusque, one is probably able to see the pride of a cordial outlaw with a sense of moral obligation and humane feelings.
Billy’s wish for the Holy Grail is modest, something like “I want to come across a situation that’s fascinating from the bottom of my heart.”
Fifth Singularity: E Pluribus Unum
Billy is a member of Geronimo‘s Resistance. He and Robin Hood are fending off a Celtic attack in Lubbock. They overhear Ritsuka’s party fighting Celtic soldiers outside of town, assuming they’re reinforcements. They soon meet Florence Nightingale and Rama when the former rushes in ahead of the others. After the remaining Celts are killed, Mash explains the situation to the two Archers. Geronimo suggests the group needs a Saber and a Lancer to help. Robin confesses he met two problematic Servants who fit the aforementioned classes earlier.
The group arrives at Dallas, where one of the Servants Robin met is located. Defeating some unexpectedly weak Celtic soldiers, they hear a disturbing song that Ritsuka, Mash, and Robin recognize. Entering the town, they meet with Elizabeth Báthory as she continues her singing. They deduce that is why the soldiers were so weak. Mash convinces Elizabeth to join them by saying it will help promote her art.
Passing through a forest to Alexandria, the group witness Nero Claudius being confronted by Fergus mac Róich, who was sent to kill her. Robin uses No Face May King to ambush him when Nero reveals his presence. The others then arrive to defeat Fergus. Before disappearing, Fergus tells Rama that Sita is being held on Alcatraz Island.
That night in the forest, Geronimo informs the others that the Celtic stronghold is the White House. Billy wonders if they can wait for the Celts and the Americans to destroy each other, but Geronimo says that would be difficult. He also says the chaos of the current situation also small forces like them can move around freely. He then speculates the Celts won’t emphasize defending their capital, given they value individual strength more.
The next morning, the group split into their respective teams to carry out their missions. Billy asks Geronimo why he would save America. Geronimo answers his people won’t be saved if American isn’t saved. He also likes the idea of America owing him a debt, even if everyone forgets once the era is corrected.
At Washington, Geronimo’s party goes to assassinate Medb during a parade. Sneaking up on her with No Face May King, they isolate her in Nuptiae Domus Aurea. However, Cú Chulainn Alter suddenly appears when Medb calls for him and attacks Nero. Confused by his strength inside the theater, the group learns Medb created him from her wish on the Grail for Cú Chulainn to be a strong and wicked king who’ll stand beside her. The group fight him when Arjuna arrives. Cú Chulainn Alter fights Nero alone while Medb and Arjuna fight the others. Geronimo orders Robin to take the communicator and escape. After he escapes, the others proceed with their battle. Billy shoots at Arjuna after the latter destroyed Geronimo’s Tsago Degi Naleya with Agni Gandiva. However, Arjuna deflects his bullets and kills him. Billy apologizes to Geronimo and disappears, wishing he was more useful.
Final Singularity: Solomon
Billy the Kid is one of the "E Pluribus Unum" Singularity Servants that arrive to aid Chaldea.
Event: All the Statesmen!
Summoned by the Nameless Master, Billy acts as the deputy of Altera (calling herself Wyatt Earp). They attempt to punish Ritsuka's party for illegal deforestation, but they are defeated instead. After Altera retreats for Chicago, Billy starts to disappear. Before he does, he reveals he, Altera, and Paul Bunyan were all summoned by the same mage. She controls everything from Chicago. Billy then disappears, saying he'd prefer to play the outlaw next time.
Anastasia: Permafrost Empire
Three months prior to Chaldea’s arrival, Billy and Beowulf were summoned to the Russian Lostbelt by the remnants of the Counter Force. They wandered around with no knowledge of their situation. They eventually became the protectors of Yaga Demensk, and the leaders of a band of male Yaga. However, a number of them rejected human leadership and turned to banditry.
Billy attacks Ritsuka’s party when they come to Yaga Demensk in a fierce blizzard. After fighting them some, he calls Beowulf over. Beowulf immediately suspects Ritsuka of being the human mage with Ivan the Terrible, so he and Billy fight the group to test their strength. After proving themselves, the group is accepted by the duo and their men.
Inside Beowulf’s cabin, Atalanta Alter proposes they join forces against Ivan. Beowulf and Billy have no issue, but their men won’t accept it out of male chauvinism. Beowulf proposes they ally out of his and Atlanta Alter’s concern for the potential discord between their factions. Billy suggests using Shanshan as a messenger. But It cannot learn the others’ scents for differing reasons, so Billy joins the rebels instead. Beowulf warns the Oprichniki in Yaga Moscow are on par with Servants and proposes his men attack the capital to draw their attention to give the rebels an opening.
Joined by Billy, the group return to the rebel stronghold. Avicebron however warns they’re nearly out of food. Atalanta Alter reluctantly proposes they steal from the pro-Ivan city of Yaga Smolensk, Patxi’s hometown. Ritsuka and the others then help Avicebron gather materials to build a wall of golems while the rebels prepare. Afterward, Billy has Shanshan learn Avicebron’s scent. The group then returns to the stronghold, where the rebels are now ready.
Quickly killing the Oprichniki, the group negotiates with the mayor. Atlanta Alter demands 60% of the town’s food supply before taking it down to 50%. However, more Oprichniki suddenly arrives and start killing everyone. The rebels and civilians nearly get into a skirmish when a rebel shoots a civilian after mistaking his broom for a weapon. Atalanta Alter stops them and orders her rebels to aim only for the Oprichniki. Avicebron then arrives, and his golems collect the weapons and kills the Oprichniki. The group retreat after the rebels get about a third of their intended target. Patxi doesn’t return with them however.
After resting in a cave for the night, the group reaches Yaga Tula by nightfall. Avicebron eavesdrop on the civilians to learn there is a Servant in the church. The group finds it empty, but the Servant only left recently. Eventually, the Servant believed to be Mozart, Amadeus Alter, arrives in front of the church waiting. Once the group exits the church, he attacks them, knowing they’re Chaldeans. Billy shoots off his mask to reveal he isn’t Mozart, which is confirmed by a Spirit Origin analysis. Kadoc Zemlupus then arrives and reveals Amadeus Alter is Antonio Salieri. After explaining the Crypters' goal, he orders his Oprichniki to kill the group. The Oprichniki are killed, so Kadoc has his Servant, Anastasia Nikolaevna Romanova, attack the group. Salieri eventually wakes up and unleashes Dio Santissimo Misericordia de mi on her. Anastasia blocks it with Viy, and Salieri accuses her and Kadoc of brainwashing him. Kadoc denies this and orders Anastasia to crush Salieri’s legs. He protects her, however, when Avicebron’s snow golems attack her. The group use this chance to escape with Salieri.
The group set camp in a village recently destroyed by the Oprichniki. Sherlock explains what Lostbelts are, and they’re currently encroaching on the Proper History. Salieri recalls overhearing Grigori Rasputin calling the Fantasy Tree the cornerstone of the Lostbelt, warning that Ivan and his Oprichniki protect it. He agrees to join the group on the condition he’s allowed to kill Mozart.
The group returns to the rebel stronghold. Atalanta Alter has tracked down magical ore and a jewel able to control golems. She agrees to share the information if the group helps construct a new stronghold. She wants it built at a ravine between the current stronghold and Yaga Moscow protected by a forest inhabited by Demonic Beasts. Atalanta Alter previously didn’t consider moving there since the forest would make attacking the capital difficult. But her scouts discovered an incomplete tunnel that cuts through the forest would allow the rebels to reach the capital in a day once completed.. Billy stays at the stronghold, while the others go to the construction site.
After the new stronghold is constructed, Billy is asked by Leonardo da Vinci to return to the Shadow Border with Ritsuka and Avicebron. While there, Billy has his gun upgraded by Da Vinci. After the Border is repaired, the group start to head back to the stronghold when Salieri warns through Shanshan that it’s under attack.
They soon arrive at the stronghold to find half of the rebels missing. Rasputin confronts them and confirms the Oprichniki are Ivan’s Noble Phantasm, Chyornyj Oprichniki. After confirming he captured the rebels, Rasputin reveals Patxi betrayed the others when faced with Ivan. He then calls for Minotauros, who had eaten the rebels except for the 1/5 captured. Minotauros then separates the group with his Noble Phantasm, Chaos Labyrinthos.
In the labyrinth, Ritsuka and Billy encounter Patxi. Admitting to his betrayal, Patxi reveals Rasputin tossed him into the labyrinth once he gave the new stronghold’s location. The others tell him that they’re from the Proper History, where the events of the Lostbelt never occurred. Then, while trying to escape, the group becomes surrounded by the Oprichnik. Fortunately, they're saved by Miyamoto Musashi. After hearing of her circumstances, Billy realizes she is the rumored human killer. He then figures they can use the sounds of his bullets to find their way around. Thanks to Patxi’s hearing, the group eventually finds their way out.
Outside, the group meets with Beowulf. Billy proposes they wake up Ivan since he can only summon the Oprichnik while sleeping. Beowulf orders his men to attack Yaga Moscow, but Billy suggests using himself as a decoy as well. After his men leave, Beowulf joins the group. He then reveals Atalanta Alter and Salieri let themselves get captured when some children were taken hostage. They're being held in a prison fort beyond the capital. Sherlock warns the slightest disturbance in the capital could awaken Ivan after deducing others are trying to keep him asleep.
The group drive the Border to the prison, only to find it empty. Instead, they find a note from Kadoc saying Atalanta Alter and Salieri are to be executed in Yaga Moscow in five days. The group then proceeds to Yaga Moscow to stop the execution. Billy, Beowulf, and Patxi acquire Bicorns for the group to ride to Yaga Mosow. Once they reach the capital, Billy goes on ahead of the others like they planned. There he fights Oprichniki using his upgraded gun.
After Ivan is killed, Billy joins the others at Fantasy Tree Orochi while they’re fighting Atalanta Alter, who betrayed them to save the Yaga. He challenges her to a duel which he wins. After Atalanta Alter disappears, Anastasia uses her powers as the new Lostbelt King to let Orochi take root, so the Lostbelt can finally expand. She and Kadoc then fight the group. After they’re defeated, Kadoc tries to use the Sirius Light to rewrite the Lostbelt. Billy shoots at him, only for Anastasia to shield him. After she disappears, Billy knocks Kadoc unconscious. The group prepares to bring him to the Border when Orochi begins releasing True Ether. Da Vinci sends the Border’s extra magical energy to the group so they can ascend and stop Orochi.
The group stops Orochi, but they lack the means to destroy it. The Priestess of the Alien God then appears at its roots, and freezes and shatters it with a touch. With Orochi gone, the Lostbelt begins to disappear. After Patxi is buried, Beowulf and Billy disappear.
- Independent Action (A Rank): One is able to act even with the absence of their Master. However, in a situation where one decides to use Noble Phantasms and the like that requires an enormous amount of magical energy to consume, backup from their Master is necessary.
- Magic Resistance (—): Because he is of the latest Heroic Spirits, he has no resistance to spells at all.
- Marksmanship (A++ Rank): General shooting techniques, which include trick shots and quickdraws by means of small arms. When it is at A++, one is a once-in-a-century genius.
- Quick Draw (A+ Rank): The specialization of the quick draw technique among the marksmanship techniques. His skill with this is to the extent that even if he drew out his weapon just after he saw his opponent drew out theirs, there would be sufficient enough time for him to shoot at them and he would still have plenty of time to spare afterward.

Level 5 Bond
"Thunderclap of Breaking Sound"
Rank: C++ Type: Anti-Unit
Range: 1~100 Maximum Targets: 1 person
A counter-like three-burst shot by means of a Colt M1877 double-action revolver (nicknamed "Thunderer"), whose use Billy the Kid is said to have favored. The anecdotes associated with him turned into a Noble Phantasm.
To be exact, it is not like the revolver is a Noble Phantasm, and if you comprehensively look at the whole of "Billy the Kid's marksmanship when he holds this revolver", it seems more of a Personal Skill than a Noble Phantasm.
The most devious aspect of this Noble Phantasm is its low prana consumption, derived from the fact that the concept of Noble Phantasm is incorporated into the greater section called "technique". In specific terms, it is no more than the same extent of consumption of employing a E Rank Noble Phantasm.
*the japanese original actually says "west reclamation period"
