Child-Gil (子ギル, Ko-Giru?) is the youthful form Gilgamesh takes upon drinking the potion of youth from the Gate of Babylon. He is an Archer-class Servant summoned by Ritsuka Fujimaru of the Grand Order conflicts of Fate/Grand Order.
Profile[edit | edit source]
Background[edit | edit source]
As a child, he was considered to be a king with aptitude for ruling superior to all others, the "epitome of the ideal boy king." Although Enkidu was created to reprimand Gilgamesh while he was still a child, Enkidu was not allowed to combat Gilgamesh until they could fight as equals. As Enkidu watched the young king, he could not understand what flaw he could possess that would require correction, but he witnessed the change firsthand as Gilgamesh grew. Changing into a despot who caused the masses to lament, Enkidu was presented with a reason to confront him.
Appearance[edit | edit source]
Child-Gil possesses the same blood-red eyes and golden hair that makes his older-self stand out from others. Shirou is unable to identify him from sight at first in comparison to his older self, and he finds it hard to believe they are the same person even after being told, though this is more due to their great differences in personality.
Personality[edit | edit source]
In contrast to his older self, Child-Gil was praised and lauded by the citizens of Uruk to the point of infatuation as tolerant, sage, fair, and moral. The only "flaw" that could be described at the point is that he respected the gods without submitting to them.
Adult Gilgamesh declares Child-Gil and his adult self to be fundamentally different, much to the point where he speaks of his childhood self in a secondhand manner. His adult self cannot perceive the memories of his younger self despite an otherwise flawless memory, and he believes Child-Gil to be the same in nature. Gilgamesh says Child-Gil very well may have stopped his growth, or even committed suicide, had he known how his adulthood-self would act. In Fate/Grand Order, when asked the thing he hated, he becomes reproachful to his master but answers that it is his adult self and sadly wonders why he becomes like that.
Fundamentally, a polite and modest boy. His type of woman goes along the lines of a "flower that blooms in the wild". Although he attained a piece of the truth regarding the demise of human history, he won't say a thing to his master. He only watches over the Master's fight and smiles.
Role[edit | edit source]
Fate/stay night[edit | edit source]
Child-Gil does not appear in Fate/stay night, but it is mentioned that during the intervening years between the Fourth Holy Grail War and the Fifth Holy Grail War that Gilgamesh took the potion of youth to allow him to live in modern society without causing a problem.
Fate/hollow ataraxia[edit | edit source]
Gilgamesh utilizes his child form for much of Fate/hollow ataraxia to act low-profile in Fuyuki City and avoid interacting with previous Servants or Masters.
Child-Gil is rather popular with other children. Even Shirou is rather fond of him.
Fate/Grand Order[edit | edit source]
It is not clear if his adult self became younger by eating the miracle drug of rejuvenation, or if he had manifested in the form of his younger days from the beginning. It is believed that what is acting as the model for his mentality is the heart from when he was called a wise ruler in the past.
Abilities[edit | edit source]
Child-Gil is weaker in ability than his older self, lacking sufficient magical energy to summon a large amount of Noble Phantasms from the Gate of Babylon. Despite that, he lacks the "Conceitful" skill possessed by his older self and displays better usage with his limited weaponry, so it could be said he is stronger as a child in that sense. Child-Gil also has the ability to petrify and stun an opponent with a move called The Kings Smile. In his peaceful state the smile looks adorable and can stun a person for a short amount of time. In his evil state, the smile can petrify a person for hours unless they have the courage to fight. The evil side being stronger, takes more of a toll on a persons body.

His nature is cruel and heartless. Never hearing people's opinions, a tyrant who holds only his own standards as absolute-- such disposition is not applicable to him in this form.

It is not sure if this is something in which "he", who manifested in his usual state, became younger by eating the miracle drug of rejuvenation, or if he had manifested in the form of his younger days from the beginning.

A Skill that denotes the disposition of a pretty boy that attracts people.
It works as a fascination magecraft-like effect regardless of gender, but evasion is possible by means of Magic Resistance Skill. Even without Magic Resistance, one can abate it so long there is a will to resist.

Sha Naqba Imuru.
The mentality of the King of Heroes - which spread across all corners of the world as if the brilliance of the stars, seeing through all creation - sublimated into a Noble Phantasm.
A continuously invoked-type Noble Phantasm. In regards to this work, the only Noble Phantasm he performs the release of True Name is "The Treasury of the King".
Level 5 Bond
The efficacy of the Noble Phantasm, Sha Naqba Imuru, is tremendous; not to mention the opponent's True Name and Noble Phantasm, it can even see through a heavily concealed truth with a single glance.
Although it is in a condition of being continuously invoked, one can also assume that it is being intentionally restrained.
Thus, maybe he has even attained a piece of the truth regarding the demise of human history.
Yet, he won't say a thing.
He only watches over the Master's fight and smiles.
He may spare no efforts in his assistance, but still--

The Archer of the previous Grail War. Mankind's oldest king of heroes, who defeated Saber. For more details, refer to his status screen in the game.
As no proper Heroic Spirit can match this man, he could be called the "Servant Killer".
Without a doubt, he is the strongest existence amongst the Servants.
Though he lost due to obsession against Saber…
Though he lost due to pride against Shirou…
Though he lost due to carelessness against XXXXX…
…the fact of the matter is that if he actually gets serious, he is a Servant that cannot be rivaled.
Perhaps because he has been living in human society for the past ten years, he seems to be hip on the latest fashions. He owns various casual clothes, but his favorite is the biker outfit he wore in the Rin route.
Well, he liked it enough to overlook Shirou's group and leave instead of letting it get dirty, at any rate. I can't believe the protagonist's life was worth less to Gil than his coat…!
It might seem strange how Gil could live in human society for ten years with a personality like his and not cause a fuss, but Gil must have realized it would have been a problem, too, because apparently he drank a
certain Noble Phantasm to change his appearance and personality.
Also, during the design stage, I selfishly insisted that "Gil absolutely has to wear full golden plate armor".
Why, you ask? Well, it might be because I was repeatedly challenging a certain 60 story tower at the time…
