Caster's True Name is Mephistopheles (メフィストフェレス, Mefisutoferesu?), the demon of temptation that appears in Goethe's masterpiece, "Faust". Waging a bet with God on whether Georg Faust would fall into depravity or not, Mephistopheles attempts to pull him into the path of evil. Mephistopheles exhausts all arts of coaxing and succeeds into enticing Faust into the path of evil. However, just before his soul was cast into hell, Faust had his soul saved by a loved one.
... Of course, it is different in "reality". The excellent magus Faust coined a single Homunculus. Naming him Mephistopheles, Faust was very affectionate to him, but was betrayed as if it was only natural and died.
LegendEditGeorg Faust is the model for the protagonist in Goethe's play, "Faust". He is an alchemist and astrologer, and he contracted with the demon Mephistopheles.
Mephistopheles is the demon of temptation in "Faust" that was said to have played a bet on whether he can corrupt Dr. Faust and God.
In the end, Mephistopheles was defeated in this bet, his wish did not come true, and he was unable to acquire Faust's soul, but it is said that the real Faust, in the middle of his alchemy experiment, was killed in a bombing and had his whole body broken apart. It did not become clear if this was Mephistopheles carrying out his contract, or whether something else was the main cause of Faust's death.
... In this work, Mephistopheles is a kind of Familiar casted by Dr. Faust; namely, a kind of Homunculus. Dr. Faust, with his gifted engineering, has advanced homunculus technology several generations ahead of his time, but due to his strange nature and sense of aesthetics, he strengthened the Homunculus' ego. A Homunculus that is exceedingly quite human———that is the key part of "Mephistopheles"; furthermore, by being clad in that legend, the Caster Servant Mephistopheles was born.
"I am born to be a Servant."Pay special attention to his face that feigns ignorance. Indeed, it may not become known that while perhaps, he was born to become a Servant, there is never a person that he calls his Master———
Mephistopheles' appearance is influenced by the effects of Innocent Monster, making him appear like a clown with demonic traits. His skin is pale white, eyes are purple with pinkish pupils, and the hair is of a light purple, flowing downwards and curling into tubes, separated into multiple bangs. Purple tear-shaped drawings of makeup are found underneath his eyes, and his lips are painted blue lipstick. Mephistopheles has a thin tail that splits into three, each end with a heart-shaped tip.
His outfit includes: an elaborately ornate hat with horn shaped protrusions; a cape of purple fur that reaches his waist; a red bow tied around his neck with golden trims; a carmine jacket with the zipper pulled down, revealing his white thorax, with electric blue sleeves with attached gloves and holes exposing the overside of the arm, the blue turning carmine in the gloves; a pair of electric blue shorts, decorated with golden lines, and with carmine frills; thin stockings with a diamond pattern, colored light purple and violet-blue; high-heeled boots, resembling elf shoes, colored purple and gold with green fur around the ankles.
His armament is a pair of straight, white shears, whose handles are heavily decorated.
In his second Ascension, the torso of his jacket becomes decorated with gold lines, the horns of his hat grow longer, and his cape extends down to his feet, parted in two, somewhat resembling demon wings. A set of bombs of his Noble Phantasm, Ticktock Bomb, appears around his right arm.
In his third Ascension, the electric blue changes to various rich colors, his hat gains a few more horn-like decorations, the bow around his neck took the shape of a butterfly, with the same golden lines decorating it, another set of bombs is wrapped around his left leg, and his shears changed in appearance, becoming a grotesque weapon with jagged blades, coloured purple.
« Ah, the fiend! The fiend! The fiend has come! It's Mephistopheles! The foulest fiend in all the world! »
At a first glance, Mephistopheles seems to faithfully work in a cheerful manner. However, he basically thinks of his Master as nothing but "a toy to entertain himself with" and will try to drive his Master into despair if given the chance. In other words, one just has to take the proper attitude as a magus and do not trust him.
In the case where his Master restrains every way for him to decide with his reasoning, Mephistopheles will unwillingly accept the relationship between a master and a servant. Basically, he does not take up the "disobeying one's commands" attitude. However, it is said to be a different story of how he properly understands and acts on the commands. And from there progressing one step even further, where a situation appears in that the Master deepens their bond with Mephistopheles while accepting all that is childish and wicked, it seems he will fight while gambling his life for the sake of his Master with pleasure and while laughing.
This genius demon is not always lonely. Ok, he is just a little lonely.
Mephistopheles appears in the singularity under the name Kuroda Mephisto. When Toyotomi Gilyoshi becomes angered by Ritsuka and Mash's desire to fight him, he is ordered, along with Takenaka Andersen, to give him a plan. However when Takenake says that he doesn't have a plan, Kuroda calls it a shame, and then wonders if he'll appear in the Christmas event. Then, after he is defeated along with Toyotomi and Takenaka in battle against the group, Kuroda calls it a shame that they were defeated, but offers the group a tea pot as a present. The tea pot is then taken by Mash, but he reveals it to be a bomb before disappearing.
