Caules Forvedge Yggdmillennia (カウレス・フォルヴェッジ・ユグドミレニア, Kauresu Foruvejji Yugudomirenia?) is the Master of Berserker of Black in the Great Holy Grail War of Fate/Apocrypha.

In other worlds besides Fate/Apocrypha, Yggdmillennia no longer exists as of the time of his birth, so he is known as just Caules Forvedge (カウレス・フォルヴェッジ, Kauresu Foruvejji?) in those worlds. As part of the El-Melloi Classroom, he is one of the many Masters of True Rider in the True and False Holy Grail Wars of Fate/strange Fake.

Profile[]

Background[]

Caules is the eldest son of the Forvedge family who was born as a spare successor for the family and as a caretaker to his older sister.

Circumstances of Birth[]

The eldest daughter of the Forvedge family, Fiore was born with exceptional Magic Circuits that appear in someone only once in a hundred years, but since it was uncertain whether the paralysis of her legs could be cured, the present head of the Forvedge family had his wife give birth to Caules as both a spare successor and a caretaker for Fiore.

Unfortunately, a miracle didn’t occur a second time, and when he saw Caules’ mediocrity that embodied the decline of the Forvedge family, the family head decided that Fiore should be made the successor even if her legs didn't function and ordered Caules to be her caretaker.[4]

Trifas Holy Grail War[]

As his sister became the head of the family and approached the highest seat of Yggdmillennia under Darnic after many months, he began to explore other avenues for his life rather than live as a piddling magus who would never accomplish anything. The Holy Grail War interrupted those plans, and while he was originally to travel to Romania as simple backup, the Command Spells began to manifest upon his arrival. With no choice, he was forced to participate as a Master.

Appearance[]

Caules is a young man, eighteen years old.[1] Caules wears the standard Yggdmillenia uniform consisting of a white jacket and black pants. He also wears black glasses.

Personality[]

Caules has no desire in joining the Holy Grail War, and he had not even wanted to become a magus at all. Though he had no interest, he began to study magecraft only to act as a "spare" for his sister. Despite his disinterest, it was a path he wanted for himself, and he was able to do what was required of him to support the fate of their entire clan, simply to study his craft. Caules himself studied magecraft while half-resigning himself to a carefree life. But as time went on, he began to feel a slight sense of impending crisis not only in Fiore, but the entire Forvedge family. It was fine for their parents to thoroughly drive the teachings of magecraft into Fiore by personally educating her, but as a result, Fiore ended up growing up as an unfortunate young lady who did not know a single thing outside of magecraft. Therefore, the only thing he could do was meddle in his older sister’s affairs as a helpful younger brother.[4]

He has come to enjoy the process of magecraft itself. He essentially followed the creed that magecraft is an accessory to human life. He has never wished to devote his entire life to the practice and finds his reason for starting to be laughable.[4] He likes being able to interact with "absurd, scientifically impossible phenomena" using his own hands, but magi are humans who become something less than human in his eyes. Reaching inhuman levels, that world is rife with "seekers", those who become removed from sentimentality and compassion and would massacre thousands for the sake of research like magi in medieval times. He is honest, and does not like to lie even when presented with an easily believable one.

Caules also has abundant present-day knowledge, he owns a computer and he was the one to teach Fiore about cell phones. By daring to rely on technology, he gained some leeway and flexibility in that area, and he tried to expand his poor specs as a magus even slightly.[4] He also has modern interests such as an interest in video games, music and anime seen by the posters in his room.

He does not currently have a wish, even though most magi would want to reach the Root and give up their lives for a chance at it. Though he does desire it as a magus, there are other things he wants. He doubts that even the Grail can so easily reach it in the first place, instead being the first step on a long path. Although he will not know until he reaches that point, he instead thinks of the possibility of reviving his sister should she perish.

As she means more to him than the Root that he would reach in one hundred years, her revival would overwrite his own wish. He notes that she likely would not revive him if he were to perish. But, his slightly pessimistic way of thinking seems to have greatly changed over of the course of the Great Holy Grail War. His way of thinking is simple and dry, and if he were to have faced his sister in a regular Holy Grail War, Fiore would have forever despaired after killing him, but Caules would have resolved himself after having first despaired and unhesitatingly killed her. In other words, his consciousness as a magus is greater than Fiore in a certain sense.[4]

Role[]

Fate/Apocrypha[]

Upon the true start of the Great Holy Grail War, Fiore notices that Caules has been restless, especially when faced with the glares of the other, more experienced magi of Yggdmillennia. Though he has no desire to participate, the Command Spells appearing provides no choice in the matter. It is fortunate under the current system, as they would have been enemies under the Fuyuki Holy Grail War system. While there would normally have been contention between two magi siblings with the same interests, the difference in power would have only meant Fiore murdering him as he cowered in fear. Fiore buys "Frankenstein's blueprints" for his catalyst, and joins the other three remaining Masters in summoning their Servants. Nervously muttering the spell repeatedly, they begin the ritual, and he manages to complete the verses without hesitation. Caules adds the required verse to make sure his Servant is Berserker, and the ritual is successful.

As the Servants are to name themselves, Rider of Black asks Caules in place of Berserker after she does not wish to state her name. Thinking it is solely because she cannot speak, Rider stare flusters Caules into revealing it, much to Berserker's displeasure. After the event is over, they leave together, Caules sighing in relief that it has ended. Though he can order her into spiritual form, he dislikes to force it and spoil her mood, especially due to her sullen moans that begin to echo in his head. He later decides to have a proper talk with her due to worries over her strength, especially due to her being completely opposite from the legend. As she had been in a bad mood, he apologizes for revealing her true name when they do not know if the other Masters may come back as enemies later, soothing her somewhat. They decide to simply try to survive over all else and get to know each other.

After he sorts out her legend and learns her wish for a mate, she wants to know his wish as well. While he could lie about wanting to reach the Root, which would easily be believable due to Berserker's knowledge gained from the Grail, he tells her the truth that he does not know. After explaining himself, she grunts in approval, and he takes his leave. He finds himself tugged on by Berserker, who gives him a flower. After accepting it, she begins to rip flowers to shreds, one by one, and thinking of the part of the legend where she was said to have thrown the farmer's daughter into the lake thinking she would float like the flower game they were playing, retreats quickly.

After the Great Holy Grail War, he and Althea went to London. Althea is responsible for helping with Caules’ household chores and magecraft.[5] He spent his days in shame while being watched by the Mage's Association in London. However, one day, Caules had his class changed with a single phrase by Lord El-Melloi II, who told him, “Why are you studying this kind of magecraft which doesn't suit you? Your talent is much more suited to this, you know?”, and before he realized it, he was surrounded by classmates who were dangerous in terms of both talent and personality while he was still in a daze. Caules would often think: “No way, I want to live a normal and mediocre life. I don’t want to get involved with these people.” While sighing softly as he gave a sidelong glance at Flat Escardos who was making a ruckus in a nearby seat.[4]

Side of Survivor[]

He is one of the survivors of the Great Holy Grail War interviewed by Astolfo.

Lord El-Melloi II Case Files[]

In the timeline of Fate/stay night, the Forvedge family never joined Yggdmillennia. Caules entered the Clock Tower on behalf of his sister, who discarded the path of the World of Magecraft and thus Caules became the Forvedge family heir in her stead.[6] He belongs to the El-Melloi II classroom.

Compared to his genius sister Fiore, he is fundamentally ordinary. That being said, his skill in Electricity magecraft drawn out by El-Melloi II is the real deal. Originally, the magecraft of the Forvedge family revolved around the summoning of low level spirits, but after observing Caules’ training for a time, El-Melloi II decided “you are not suited for that kind of magecraft.” Showing an extraordinary affinity for the Primeval Batteries, the “Crafted Tree” he used in the Rail Zeppelin case was something he learned within an unprecedented time of a single month.[7]

Grace Note[]

Caules often expresses exasperation at the antics of Flat and Svin, and thinks to himself how he's ended up in a dangerous place.

Caules having a personal, multi-monitor computer setup in his dorm room impresses the other students. Lord El-Melloi II recruits Caules to help the investigation into the Gurdoa Davenant case, as the increases in the town's electrical consumption caused by Gurdoa's magecraft are catching attention online.[8]

case. Mystic Eyes Collection Train[]

Lord El-Melloi II invited Caules to join him and Gray on the Rail Zeppelin, but the Caules who accepted the invitation and accompanied them onto the train was actually an impostor, Doctor Heartless in disguise. The real Caules appears near the end after his imposter is restrained, and uses his electrical magecraft to help in the battle against Doctor Heartless and Iskandar's Shadow.

Fate/strange Fake[]

The El-Melloi class in Fate/strange Fake.

Caules is one of El-Melloi II's students who arrive in Snowfield after Flat's death and the emergence of Thia Escardos. He is one of the masters of Hippolyta along with the rest of the El-Melloi Classroom, having been granted a portion of a Command Spell by Verner.[9]

Other appearances[]

In Fate:Lost Einherjar, ten years after Fate/Apocrypha, Remina Eltfrom Yggdmillennia refers to Caules as a brother figure.[10]

Abilities[]

Caules is a not very powerful as a magus, with all of the Forvedge family's talent having gone to his sister. He is the lowliest of the Masters with poor aptitude, so he summons Berserker due to her being a relatively new mystery with mundane parameters. The homunculi providing magical energy for the Servants and her being able to gather magical energy with Bridal Chest solves the normal problem of the high expenditure of a Berserker-class Servant. Darnic expects little from him except to use Berserker to cause confusion on the battlefield with the proper use of Command Spells.

Though he doesn't have much talent as a magus, he is shown to have a very keen intellect and is perfectly aware of his disadvantages immediately trying to know his Servant's strengths, weakness, and limits almost immediately after summoning her and effectively using her and making good use of his Command Spells during battle though this only gets him so far as he ends up losing Berserker rather early in the war.

Caules is also shown to also know a little healing magic, and is capable of using Bounded Fields through the use of chess pieces.[11] Though he has much more leeway after having the family’s Magic Crest transplanted in him, he is still far from being a first-class magus.[4]

Spiritual Evocation[]

Caules conjuring a vulture spirit with Spiritual Evocation.

The Forvedge family magecraft is Spiritual Evocation, although Caules does not have much of a talent for it. He specializes in summoning low-class spirits, insects, and animals.[4] His magical tools for summoning evil spirits and beasts consist of a bracelet with the names of the beasts inscribed on it and black insect eggs, the first one calling upon panther Familiars and the second earthworms.[11] Using the Incantation "Anima Vulture(Primitive Spirit: Bird of Prey)", he can also summon a giant bird Spirit to use for transportation, which is easier to do with the family's Magic Crest, though he still has to exhert effort to not lose his focus.[12]

Caules can also cast psychoscopy, summoning magecraft that allows to pick up and play back the thoughts or "residual memories" of what once existed in a place, though he thinks that he is ill-suited for it. Emotions and thoughts can sometimes leave their "colors" on material objects, especially on corpses, where they formed a never-ending loop of the moment immediately before death. Over time, these thoughts and emotions disappear, but the more violent the death, the more powerful they become, occasionally staining even the inorganic objects around them, such as furniture or the building itself. It is the base mechanism behind a haunting. Psychoscopy allows a magus to attune on some level with the circumstances of when the thoughts had been left in that place. A skillful magus would be capable of maintaining a balance between synchronizing with the event and blocking their own sensations, but as Caules is not that good, he experiences the same pain that the victim experienced.[13]

Electrical Magecraft[]

After joining the El-Melloi Classroom, Caules uses electricity magecraft after Lord El-Melloi II helps him realize he has more of a talent for it than for Spiritual Evocation. One of his spells is Crafted Tree: Hanged Thunder (絞首刑の雷(クラフテッド・ツリー), Kōshukei no Kaminari(Kurafuteddo Tsurī)?), which, like a tree with branches reaching toward heaven, sends out countless branches of thunder that entangles prey.[14]

Caules's Primeval Battery made by Flat

Caules also has the Mystic Code Primeval Battery (原始電池?), which is an imitation created by Flat after analyzing the real thing used by Atrum Galliasta.[15] Through hand contact with the battery, Caules can adjust bioelectric currents to activate someone's od and increase the rate of their body's natural healing.[16] However the person who did that was actually Doctor Heartless disguised as Caules, and Lord El-Melloi II states that Caules isn't quite as skilled at bioelectric healing as Heartless was.

Development[]

Caules having a talent for electricity magecraft was a suggestion from Ryohgo NaritaWP, and was inspired by Caules's connection to Frankenstein.[7] Makoto Sanda, the author of Lord El-Melloi II Case Files, describes how after Fate/Apocrypha was finished its author Yuuichirou Higashide essentially shoved Caules toward him saying "Mr. Sanda, this guy is gonna head off to the El-Melloi class."[17]

    The homunculi created by Gordes have somewhat varied personalities and abilities, and Althea is a model that excels in magecraft. Her personality is exactly like that of a homunculus: reserved, yet wicked tongued. In London, she basically helps with household chores… She is also responsible for helping with Caules’ magecraft, but she has taken up a part-time job searching for familiars with magecraft.

    Caules Forvedge [Person]
    A young magus, originally from Fate/Apocrypha. Of course, since Apocrypha is set in a different world, much of his background is different.
    Compared to his genius sister Fiore, he was fundamentally ordinary.
    That being said, his skill in Electricity Magecraft drawn out by El-Melloi II is the real deal. Originally, the magecraft of the Forvedge family revolved around the summoning of low level spirits, but after observing Caules' training for a time, El-Melloi II decided “you are not suited for that kind of magecraft.” Showing an extraordinary affinity for the Primeval Batteries, the “Crafted Tree” he used in the Rail Zeppelin case was something he learned within an unprecedented time of a single month.
    While attempting to decide what kind of magecraft El-Melloi II would draw out of him, a certain Narita Ryōgo was adamant in his advice that “Of course that has to be Electricity Magecraft!!” Of course, that was inspired by his Servant Fran in Apocrypha. “Crafted Tree” was also named after Fran's Noble Phantasm, “Blasted Tree.” There's no way Caules would have knowledge of this alternate world, but if there was some sort of fate tying those two together…even if it was a thread thinner than a spider's silk, that was enough, or so this author thought.

    Q: Rewinding the topic a bit, are there any hardships specific to having characters from different titles within the TYPE-MOON world hop the fence and appear in this one? How do you balance consistency with the settings within the different titles and how the characters are drawn out?

    —Rewinding the topic a bit, are there any hardships specific to having characters from different titles within the TYPE-MOON world hop the fence and appear in this one? How do you balance consistency with the settings within the different titles and how the characters are drawn out?

    Makoto Sanda: In that aspect, Reines was the most difficult to work with. At the point where she made her appearance in Fate/Apocrypha, it was already decided that Case Files would be a thing. (Yuichiro) Higashide consulted with me, "Is it okay for Reines to be something like this?" So quite a bit of the part at the beginning of the second volume of the original novels where Reines is the narrator had been written out during the initial planning phase. I had wanted to solidify how Reines shapes up as a character to myself.

    —The writers all have such solid coordination with one another.

    Makoto Sanda: But Caules was more like an afterthought. When Fate/Apocrypha was completed, it was like, "Mr. Sanda, this guy is gonna head off to the El-Melloi Class", where Mr. Higashide naturally shoved him my way. (laughs) As far as the position the character served, that made things interesting, so I went along with it as well. Flat is similar but in contrast to that. Flat originally was a character that was born from an April Fools fanfiction piece by Ryogo Narita in 2008 (Fake/states night). Actually, I was keeping him company as he pulled an all-nighter writing it... That story aside (laughs), in other words Flat is the very first character created as El-Melloi II's student. Which means, he becomes the standard for every other student.

    —Indeed.

    Makoto Sanda: Of course, it's obvious if you have taken a look at the series, but while Flat eclipses others as a student within the class, I had to make sure that the class environment was such that it's not strange for him to be there. That was when I created Svin. Flat being the only genius wouldn't let him settle down as a character, nor is it really interesting as a group. Therefore, I needed to create a strange character that had just as much talent as Flat. And, since Flat is basically a trickster, I need a character that could stop him. That is why Svin is a character that is basically in charge of the rebuttals, but on occasion will go off the deep end just as much as Flat does.
