The Clock Tower (時計塔, Tokeitō?) is the first branch and headquarters of the Mage's Association.[1][2]

Overview[]

The Clock Tower is the faction belonging to the Association Director, a student of Solomon, who was one of the people to found the Mage's Association during 0AD. The association split into three separate factions as of 20AD, Atlas and the Wandering Sea rejecting the modernization of magecraft and the Director's following deciding to embrace it. The Clock Tower was officially formed as of 500AD.[3] Kischur Zelretch Schweinorg was a founding member of the Clock Tower.[4]

From the outside, the Clock Tower appears to be an appealing and welcoming place, but the truth is not so bright. Actually, the inner workings of the place are ruled by the power struggles between several factions of Magi. In Heaven's Feel True Ending, Rin described her trial in London as being more a parade than anything else: although it had over 300 participants, the majority of them were Magi who wanted to gain favor with the higher ranks.[5]

The Clock Tower is currently under the control of a pseudo-aristocratic elite called the Lords. Each Lord holds great political power within the Association just by himself, and there is also those who associate themselves to other talented Magi or an important Magi lineage in a sponsor-sponsored relationship so to increase their influence.

Maybe due this elitist background, preconceived and discriminatory behavior is somewhat widespread inside the Clock Tower. Rune and Witchcraft Thaumaturgy are not very popular in the main branch, the latter not being taught as an academia at all. The Enforcers are looked down upon by the upper ranks. Discrimination against Asians is common, which might be a factor on why so few of them are members of the Association.

Admission of new members also involves exams to test one's knowledge of Magecraft, but is possible to bypass this and become a scholarship student through letters of recommendation or the successor of a distinct lineage of magi,[6] having outstanding talent,[7] or even by accomplishing an impressive display of magecraft.[8][5] Said "outstanding" individuals receive special treatment such as individual rooms in the dormitory or the right to bring along a couple of apprentices. The apprentices won't have to pay for enrollment or go through the examinations themselves, but they won't be seen as members of the Association either.[6]

The organization handling patents relating to magic is also the Clock Tower,[9] and the current finances of the Tohsaka family is being by covered by the patent royalties that are being transferred to their account.[10]

It has been said in Clock Tower that there are three possible disasters within the Association: Gazamy the Wraith, Sealing Designations and the Enforcers.[11]

Locations[]

Headquarters[]

The Clock Tower is located at the British Museum.[9][12] Specifically, the museum is where the entrance to it is situated, with the Clock Tower and its facilities being underground, extending from Regent's Park up until Westminster.[13] The Clock Tower was originally only its headquarters in London, but in the hundreds of years since its establishment, and as it expanded, more facilities were added.[14] It is the largest magical fortress in the World of Magecraft, protected by hundreds of defensive contraptions, and wouldn't be destroyed even if the Earth itself was.[15] At the deepest part, there is a special area called the "Bottom of the Bridge" where the Association confines many sealing designated magi deemed to be "dangerous because their talents were too outstanding."[9]

Campus[]

Comprising the rest of the Association are eleven of the departments which reconfigured themselves as their own college towns in the districts and suburbs surrounding London (Slur, Rocks Road, etc).[14][16][17][18] The twelfth one, Mystile, the Faculty of General Fundamentals and the First Department, serves as the main academic building located in the suburbs of London and has a similar appearance to Big Ben.[17] It looks like a normal old university on the outside,[19] due to Bounded Fields mystically and psychologically protecting against people (from physical methods like inspection zones on highways and cartographic erasure to bounded fields obscuring vision),[17] preventing passers-by from carelessly walking in.[16] The cityscape is a juxtaposition of contemporary and medieval architecture, with some of the buildings dating back as far as the 12th Century but still being well-preserved. The town consists of over 40 student dormitories and over a hundred research buildings and school structures of various purposes, as well as the business districts that supply the residents. At the center of this area, the first school built among the city buildings is what is referred to with reverence by magi everywhere as the Clock Tower proper.[19][18]

Spiritual Tomb of Albion[]

The Clock Tower is built atop the Spiritual Tomb of Albion (霊墓アルビオン, Rei haka Arubion?), the corpse of a mountain-sized dragon that did not venture to the Reverse Side of the World with the coming of the Age of Man, and later died trying to dig down to the Reverse Side. There are only four entrances to the Spiritual Tomb of Albion throughout London, one of which is located in London's Chinatown in Soho. Built like a labyrinth, it is the source of many mystical resources for the magi of the Clock Tower, and also home to magical beasts. The deeper you go the stranger things get, as you grow closer to the Reverse Side of the World.

At the bottom of the Spiritual Tomb of Albion is the Carillon Observatory (天文台カリオン, Tenmondai Karion?), the oldest room of the Clock Tower and where Sealing Designations are decided, so called because of the giant bell hanging in the Observatory that rings whenever a Sealing Designation is dealt.[20][21] The other function of the Carillon Observatory is to ensure the royalties from patented magical formulas are properly charged, by way of the Observatory being able to detect traces of magecraft Clock Tower mages cast on the World. However, the Carillon can't observe the entire world, which is why the Clock Tower has other branches, each with their own observatory, allowing magecraft copyright to be enforced in about 70-80% of the globe.[22]

Other locations[]

Some affiliated buildings and institutions are known to be located elsewhere. For example, Gazamy the "Evil Spook", treated as the number one disaster in the Association, was locked up at the bottom of the Tower of London[9] prior to escaping at the end of the 20th century.[23]

Three families[]

The Lords: Noble (貴族(ロード), Kizoku(Rōdo)?) are the three major families that hold sway over the Clock Tower, Barthomeloi, Trambelio, and Valualeta, and around twenty families of relatives. They are objects of fear within the Clock Tower, and they are even well-known in normal society. The one with the shortest family history is of five hundred years, while the longest has a history of over two thousand years. The families have been plotting for a very long time.[9] Of the three the Barthomeloi are at the top, the most powerful and influential family in the entire Clock Tower.

Lords[]

Factions[]

The Clock Tower has three major Factions (派閥?), with many mage families being part of one. The factions are named after which family is the head of their respective faction.

Aristocratic Faction[]

Aristocratic Faction (貴族主義派閥?)

  • Leading family: Barthomeloi Faction
  • Supporting factions: El-Melloi Faction, Gaiuslink Faction, others
  • Purpose: They believe the management of the Clock Tower should be handed to those nobility who had proven to have excellent bloodlines.

Democratic Faction[]

Democratic Faction (民主主義派閥?)

  • Leading family: Trambelio Faction
  • Supporting factions: Valualeta Faction (includes Iselma Family), Edelfelt Faction, others
  • Purpose: They believe bloodline should be disregarded and those with the talent should be in charge.

Neutral Faction[]

Neutral faction (中立派閥?)

  • Leading family: Meluastea Faction
  • Supporting factions: Brishisan Faction, Jigmarie Faction, others
  • Purpose: They don't care one way or the other, and just want to do their research in peace.

Departments[]

Chart of the Clock Tower's faculties, factions, and ranks.

The Clock Tower divides the city of London based on faculty and department, divided into 12 domains of mysticism. The architecture varies depending on the district, the city reflecting the specialties of each faculty. The main school is in London, consisting of Mystile, the Faculty of Fundamentals, and five Major Classrooms and seventy or so Minor Classrooms.[16]

The Twelve Faculties are ruled by the Twelve Lords. The majority of the magi begin their studies at General Fundamentals for four[24] or five[18] years, and then move on to other Faculties,[25][24] usually entering the Faculty associated with their lineage.[18] However, particularly talented students can take on multiple course loads,[24] or switch faculties repeatedly as soon as possible.[24][26] Magi might also enroll in other Faculties as associates to help further their studies in their own Faculty.[18] Professors can also give guest lectures to other departments outside their own.[24]

Each department has a second name that is named after their founder. For example, the Department of Mineralogy is also known as "Kischur" after Kischur Zelretch Schweinorg. The exception is the Department of Zoology; as nobody knows who founded it, it is simply called "Chimera".[27]

The twelve departments of mysticism include:

  1. General Fundamentals
  2. Individual Fundamentals
  3. Spiritual Evocation
  4. Mineralogy
  5. Zoology
  6. Lore
  7. Botany
  8. Astrology
  9. Creation
  10. Curses
  11. Archaeology
  12. Modern Magecraft Theory
  • Policies - Formerly the 12th department, split out in 1700.

General Fundamentals[]

General Fundamentals (全体基礎, Zentai Kiso?) is where the majority of magi study for about five years about common magical knowledge,[18][25] which includes the common ground between lineages of magecraft,[25] basic leyline and mana studies,[18][25] sympathetic magecraft,[18] and contagious magecraft.[18] It is designated as (I) and the department of Mystile (ミスティール, Misutīru?). One of its lecturer is Professor Craig,[28] and Valea Cyclefi is a student of this department.[29][30] Shirou Emiya briefly studies there at the end of the Unlimited Blade Works anime.[31]

Individual Fundamentals[]

Individual Fundamentals (個体基礎, Kotai Kiso?) is designated as (II) and the faculty of Solonea (ソロネア, Soronea?), a family of the Neutral Faction.[32]

Spiritual Evocation[]

Spiritual Evocation (降霊, Kōrei?) designated as (III) and the faculty of the Eulyphis (ユリフィス, Yurifisu?) family. Currently Rufleus Nuada-Re Eulyphis is the head of the faculty and his son Bram Nuada-Re Sophia-Ri is his successor of the position. When Rufleus is unavailable Rocco Belfeban serves as a "proxy Lord".[33]

It studies the Magecraft of summoning spiritual beings, be it through Invocation or Evocation, working through a spiritual medium such as spiritual surgery (霊媒術, reibaijutsu?), Necromancy,[34] and spiritual possession. Its lecturers include the likes of Kayneth El-Melloi Archibald and Wills Pelham Codrington. Kairi Sisigou,[35] Fiore Forvedge,[36] Pemetrekis,[36] and Ophelia Phamrsolone[37] were all students of this faculty. Merem Solomon's power to create his Great Demon Beasts falls along the lines of Spiritual Evocation.[38]

Summoning[]

Summoning (喚科学?) is a branch of Spiritual Evocation headed by Rocco Belfeban.

Mineralogy[]

Mineralogy (鉱石, Kōseki?, Geology) designated as (IV) and the faculty of Kischur (キシュア, Kishua?). It is the study of mystical properties of mineral substances such as jewels. Rin TohsakaLuviagelita EdelfeltYvette L. Lehrman, and Clast Leni Wagner[29][30] are students at this faculty.

Zoology[]

Zoology (動物, Dōbutsu?) is designated as (V) and the faculty of Chimera (キメラ, Kimera?). Unlike the rest of the Twelve Faculties which are named after their founders, Zoology's founder is unknown so it got called Chimera.[27] Transformation magecraft falls under its purview.[39] Sir Kharadron,[40] Principal Professor Anses Growchester,[40] Gurdoa Davenant,[40] and Misaria Crowlam[29][30] are some of its members.

Lore[]

Lore (伝承, Denshō?) is designated as (VI) and the faculty of Brishisan (ブリシサン, Burishisan?). Since the founding of the Clock Tower, the Lore Department has been known to be the department with the least number of students. They deal with relics that aren't of this world and report directly to the head of the Clock Tower.[37] Maio Brishisan Clynelles is a member of this faculty.[41] Daybit Sem Void once was as well before being expelled for unknown reasons.[37]

Botany[]

Botany (植物, Shokubutsu?) is designated as (VII) and the faculty of Yumina (ユミナ?). It is known as the department for witchcraft,[37] and pharmaceuticals.[41] Anti-aging medicine is in high demand and so is a significant source of income for Botany.[42] Makiri Zolgen was affiliated with this faculty,[43] as was Hinako Akuta[37] and Beryl Gut.[44]

Astromancy[]

Astromancy (天体, Tentai?) designated as (VIII) and the faculty of the Animusphere family. It is generalized as the Astronomy Faculty, but it includes divisions such as Astrology, Planetology, and Divinity.[18] Kirschtaria Wodime is part of this faculty,[37] and Aoko Aozaki once studied at there.[18]

Creation[]

Creation (創造, Sōzō?) is designated as (IX) and the faculty of the Valuay (バリユエ, Bariyue?) family. Lord Valueleta is the head of the Creation department.[41] Most magi within the faculty consider themselves to be artists in some sense. The Iselma family is one example, as they pursue the creation of 'the most beautiful person'. Byron Valualeta IselmaIslo Sebunan, and Augustus Henrik Asplund[29][30] are members of this faculty.

Curses[]

Curses (呪詛, Juso?) is designated as (X) and the faculty of Jigmarie (ジグマリエ, Jigumarie?). One of its fields of study is Necromancy.[45] Mick Grazilier is a member of this Faculty,[46] and Makiri Zolgen was also affiliated with the department.[43]

Archaeology[]

Archaeology (考古学, Kōkogaku?) is designated as (XI) and the faculty of Astaire (アステア, Asutea?). It is the Department of Universal Research, broadly studying all worldwide and historical matters. The Eleventh Faculty's college town is known as Rocks Road and earned its name from its streets are made of bricks and stone. Rocks Road is an area distant from the power struggles of the Association, and is a group of pure academics who study archaeology and nothing else.[18] Lev Uvall is the director of the research building, which looks like a mansion larger than 200-tsubo (approximately 661m²) or a small castle.[18] This is the department where Touko Aozaki, Souren Araya, and Cornelius Alba once worked together.

Modern Magecraft Theory[]

Modern Magecraft Theory (現代魔術論, Gendai Majutsu-ron?) is designated as (XII) and the faculty of Norwich (ノーリッジ?). It is the most recent faculty, established at the start of the 20th century,[47] and its strong backing by the Norwich family during its foundation back then gave it its pseudonym.[48] El-Melloi Classroom is another pseudonym also used interchangeably.[49] It aims at summarising the thaumaturgy of the past centuries as a broader, shallower, more general magecraft that is "easier to use", and adapted to modern society.[47] In short, it revolves primarily around the Occult and related studies.[24] Currently, Lord El-Melloi II is the head of the department, succeeding Doctor Heartless. Using money borrowed from Melvin Weins, the quantity of which was enough to buy a castle, Waver bought what would become known as the El-Melloi Classroom, and it served for a time as the only place teaching Modern Magecraft.[49] Over time, he managed to get second grade professor Shardan to come out of retirement and join him,[50][51] and the number of teachers and students in the Faculty of Modern Magecraft grew considerably over the years, reaching the numbers they have today, with three to five professors (fluctuating over time) teaching Modern Magecraft, and the El-Melloi Classroom only being a small part of the faculty, a small seminar of about fifteen students, which jumps to fifty if you include auditing students.[49] It is the Faculty that doles out the most in student loans and financing.[16] Gray, Flat Escardos, Svin Glascheit (who eventually graduates), Caules Forvedge,[52] Nazica and Radia Pentel,[53][54] Verner Caesarmund,[53] Roland Berzinsky,[53][54] Fezgram vor Sembren,[53] and Org Rum[53] are all students at this faculty, with Mary Lil Fargo[55] and Ayaka Sajyou[56] being alumni. Rin Tohsaka, Luviagelita Edelfelt, and Yvette L. Lehrman take classes here while being mainly Mineralogy students, with Rin being in apprenticeship under Lord El-Melloi II[57] and Luvia having made him her tutor.[58] Both are aiming for a double degree in Mineralogy and Modern Magecraft.[59]

The Faculty's college town is located on Slur Street, with archaic buildings on its western side, and modern looking buildings on its eastern side which is closer to London, all cheap-looking buildings.[25] Ten years prior to the events of Lord El-Melloi II Case Files, the area had been nothing but a neighbourhood coincidentally close to the Clock Tower, but as students from the Department of Modern Magecraft continued to flock to the area, the Magic Association caved in to their need for a space of their own and bought up the whole area, but forwarded all the cost of the endeavour to the Department of Modern Magecraft itself.[19] The Faculty is also comprised of the Norwich Student Dormitory, headed by dorm supervisor Krishna, where Gray resides, and where the first meeting between Luviagelita and Rin took place (the receptionist Octavia Leyland recounts the fight that resulted as the worst incident in the story of the building).[60]

Policies[]

Although Policies (法政, Hōsei?) is the 13th item and is open to those who wish to pursue politics, it is more of a social science rather than a discipline in the pursue to mysticism.[18] As a result, it is not included in the Twelve Faculties, having been removed as an academic department in the 17th century.[27] It is also where Lords learn how to rule the Clock Tower and send their children to learn leadership relevant to the Clock Tower,[61][62] and it is also in charge of the patents for magical formulas.[20] Barthomeloi Lorelei is its leader, and Hishiri AdashinoGoredolf Musik,[63][40] and Evelyn McIntyre[64] are part of this faculty.

Secret Autopsy Division[]

Secret Autopsy Division (秘骸解剖局?) is the organization responsible for investigating the Spiritual Tomb of Albion.

The organization is split into three parts: the Management Branch, responsible for overseeing the function of the entire organization; the Materials Branch, responsible for providing the tools necessary for the excavation and researching Albion itself; and the Excavation Branch which keeps records of the actual investigators.

Unlike most organizations in the Clock Tower, since it was set up in a way to prevent any one Lord from monopolizing it, the organization doesn’t lend much weight to the bloodlines of those involved. Rather than magi, it would be more accurate to call them archaeological Spellcasters.

Excavation Branch[]

Secret Autopsy Division - Excavation Branch (秘骸解剖局・発掘部門?) is the department responsible for the actual excavation.

Before the arrival of Heartless and the rise of the Faculty of Modern Magecraft, new generations of magi had no means of making a name for themselves except by finding success in the excavations.[65]

Management Branch[]

Secret Autopsy Division - Management Branch (秘骸解剖局・管理部門?) is the organization responsible for the management of the mining town of Magisfair within the Spiritual Tomb of Albion.[66]

They possess a tremendous amount of data regarding the people and materials taken into Albion.[66]

The number of entrances to Albion are incredibly few, and though each one is in the hands of the Management Department, the number of officially recognized excavators that attempt to sneak out Talismans from the Tomb is endless, thus necessitating their tight control.[66]

And though the official entrances have been locked down, a number of portals leading from the Tomb to the surface have appeared, leading to a slew of disappearances and graverobbings.[66]

Materials Branch[]

Secret Autopsy Division - Materials Branch (秘骸解剖局・資材部門?) is the department responsible for creating the tools used in the excavation and exploration of Albion. Unlike most Workshops, because they must mass produce the same items over and over, a number of magi’s Workshops have been combined to create the “Composite Workshop Criegula.” Apparently, this Criegula also once made witch’s tools or something.[23]

In addition, this division is also responsible for actually progressing research into Albion. Since the disappearance of the criminal Gazamy at the end of the last century, Albion has continued to undergo extreme changes, working this department down to the bone.[23]

External Branch Chapters[]

Singapore's Luxcarta.

The Clock Tower has other branches outside the United Kingdom across the globe, each with their own observatory to enforce magecraft copyright:

  • North American branch of the Mage's Association (北米の魔術協会支部, Hokubei no majutsu kyōkai shibu?) - According to Da Vinci, it is understaffed.[67]
  • Singapore branch - Headed by a man named Chris. Its observatory is named Luxcarta, and requires authorization from both the Clock Tower and the Louxuan Guan to use as its range covers Guan territory.[22]

    Mage Association [Others]
    A self-defense organization formed by practitioners of magegraft, transcending nationality and genre. (Of course, this is in name only.)
    Its mission is to manage, conceal, and develop magecraft.
    It reserves the use of force to protect itself from entities that threaten its existence (the Church, other mage organizations, and individuals who hunt what they consider taboo). In order to promote the development (or regression?) of magecraft, the Association set up research institutions and established laws that forbid the criminal use of magecraft.
    The headquarter of the Association is in London, England. It is also called the Clock Tower.
    The Association is divided into three departments. Besides the Clock Tower, there are also the "Giant's Cellar" in the Atlas mountains in Egypt, and the "Sea of Astray", the integrated association in Northern Europe. The "Sea of Astray" was the original Association that predated the Clock Tower, and had ceased communication with the Association since the Clock Tower became the headquarter.
    Also, the Association deems the Magic Foundation of the Middle East and the philosophies of magecraft from the continent* as incompatible with its teachings. Conversely, the other two schools also reject the Association.
    Furthermore, as Alba stated in the story, the mage organizations in Japan did not join the Association.

    “Clock Tower”, the Highest Institute of Magic
    The Clock Tower, the core of the Association and in fact what could also be said to be the Association itself, is based in the British museum of London. Magi from all over the world gather and devote themselves day and night to the study of magic, while at the same time, are busily tripping over and being tripped over by other factions and competing for power and budget. The organization is anything but harmonious and has a complicated bizarre structure, but the magical research there is without doubt the leading edge.

    Below the building, there is the magi’s research area which includes studies and archives. It is only a venerable museum to normal people of course, but at the deepest part, there is a special area (prison?) called the “Bottom of the Bridge” where the Association confines many sealing designated magi deemed to be “dangerous because their talents were too outstanding.” Also, apparently the Gazamy the “Evil Spook”, treated as the number one disaster in the Association, is locked up at the bottom of the London tower.

    The person of highest position in the Clock Tower, the “Director” has been the same person for the 2000 years since the founding of the organization, and because of this is thought to be something more than human.

    The organization handling patents relating to magic is also the Clock Tower, and the current finances of the Tohsaka family is being by covered by the patent royalties that are being transferred to their account.

    Ranks of Magi
    A magus is given a “rank” that matches his ability. The highest is said to be Crown (Grand), but details on it are unknown. Note that Lord El-melloi II, lecturer at the Clock Tower who has produced many Grands among his pupils, is stuck in the mediocre “fourth rank” for some reason.

    Color ranks
    Separate from the normal ranks, color-based titles are given to those that have become special.
    The highest are red, blue, and yellow based on the three primary colors. After that, there are the combined colors of orange, purple, green, black, and so on. The further down you go, the less your rank is. Note that there is no rule about only one person for each color. The Association will, without any stinginess, award a color to you if you’re a magus of great stature or one with an unusual talent.

    Sealing Designation Enforcers
    If you receive a “sealing designation”, you will be confined and even your magic research will be gone, not to mention your freedom. Thus, the person given that designation will of course desperately resist that and won’t stop fighting. To forcefully retrieve magi who were qualified enough to be given a sealing designation, the Association dispatches “Enforcers.” There are around 30 of them total, and Bazett is one of them.

    Lords, consuming their time in power struggles
    In the Magic Association, no rather, the Clock Tower, there are a number of families that hold sway. They are called Lords and are the objects of fear. There are three major families of Lords and about 20 families of relatives. These families are well-known even in normal society. The history of one family is at shortest 500 years and the longest is over 2000 years. They have been plotting and plotting since a staggeringly long past.

    The Sea of Estray, together with the Atlas Institute, is an organization called the original form of the Magic Association.
    Among the founders of the Magic Association, there had been many heretical magi who were exiled from the Sea of Estray and the Atlas Institute and had no place left to go.
    The base of the Sea of Estray is in Northern Europe. This base, with the nickname of the Moving Stone Coffin, is itself a moving mountain range. Normally it is wandering at sea as its name suggests, but sometimes it comes up on dry land.
    It seems they research mainly body alteration, but the specifics are unknown.

    *What is an alchemist?
    One who studies the flow of matter. That is what an alchemist is. The alchemists of the Clock Tower created products like the homunculi of the Einzbern by merging with western magery.
    However, the ultimate goal of the alchemists of the Atlas Institute is set even closer to the original ideology, as the "transformation of events". The often spoke-up "transformation of base metal to gold" in alchemy is, to the members of the Atlas Institute, mere "transformation of matter" and is nothing more than a primitive art far removed from their ideals. Their alchemy is an advancement of the metallurgy of ancient Egypt, the root of the discipline, and has not been influenced by western magery like the alchemy that the Clock Tower magi handle.

    Q: How does Tohsaka Rin pay for her living expenses when she is performing sorcery using such valuable jewels? Is she eating up her parents’ inheritance? Has she taken up a part-time job like Shirou? Or has she turned her hand to some other trade?

    Q: How does Tohsaka Rin pay for her living expenses when she is performing sorcery using such valuable jewels? Is she eating up her parents’ inheritance? Has she taken up a part-time job like Shirou? Or has she turned her hand to some other trade?

    A: The Tohsaka family is still relatively wealthy because it receives royalties from magical patents (theories and rituals used at the Clock Tower. Like real-life patents.), and as a result their income is surprisingly high. Even without any additional revenue, annual income is roughly #0,000,000 yen. ...Although, Rin feels a bit ashamed of this since it’s all thanks to the work of previous generations.

    Location
    The building (academic building) that is the Clock Tower is located in the suburbs of London and has a similar appearance to country-wide Parliament(Big Ben). This is the First Department. Bounded fields in the surrounding areas protect against people (from physical methods include inspection zones on highways and cartographic erasure to bounded fields obscuring vision). In addition, eleven departments reconfigured themselves as satellite cities in districts surrounding London (Slur. Rocks Road, etc).
    Professors on active teaching duty at the hub set up a London residence. Although the Clock Tower is fundamentally a research institution, their home (headquarters) so to speak are their department's cities.
    For example, El-Melloi II rents an apartment in London. After he finishes his morning work as a Clock Tower professor, he returns to his home, Modern Magecraft city Slur, in the afternoon to take care of his students.

    立地
    建物(学術棟)としての時計塔はロンドン郊外に国会議事堂に似た外観の建物である。このロンドン郊外にあるのが第一学科。周囲には人よけの結界(国道の検問や地図からの消去といった物理的なものから、視覚妨害の結界など)が張られている。そのほか、十一の学科は衛星都市として改造された、ロンドン周辺の街にある(スロクスロートなど)。
    中央に詰めている教授たちはロンドンに住居をおき、時計塔を基本的な研究場所としているが、彼らのホーム(本拠地)といえるのはそれぞれの学科の都市である。
    たとえばエルメロイI世はロンドンにアパートを借午前中は時計としてのめをはたしながら、午後はホームである現代学科の都市・スラーに戻り、学生たちの面倒を見ている、という感じ。

    The department responsible for creating the tools used in the excavation and exploration of Albion. Unlike most Workshops, because they must mass produce the same items over and over, a number of magi’s Workshops have been combined to create the “Composite Workshop Criegula.” Apparently, this Criegula also once made witch’s tools or something.
    In addition, this division is also responsible for actually progressing research into Albion. Since the disappearance of the criminal Gazamy at the end of the last century, Albion has continued to undergo extreme changes, working this department down to the bone.

  33. [v] Fate/Apocrypha material - Encyclopedia: Rocco Belfaban [Person's name], p.190-191 [T]

    Rocco Belfaban [Person's name]
    The dean of the Department of Summoning. The Department of Summoning is a subordinate organization to the Department of Spiritual Evocation, which ended up being regarded very highly only in the “Fate/Apocrypha” world. As you all already know, subspecies Holy Grail Wars are held all over the place in the “Apo” world, so the Association of Magi had to quickly form countermeasures. At first, every magecraft department even slightly linked to Servant summoning techniques were scrambling to reap the benefits before each other, causing ugly conflicts to continue even after a Holy Grail War ended, so it was decided to treat “everything related to Servants of the Holy Grail War” under the category of “summoning”, entrusting all responsibility to an assured conservative in the Association.
    That conservative is this old man, Rocco Belfegan. Status-wise, he is effectively a “proxy Lord”. Of course, since there is a conservative faction, there is also a reformist faction, and they strongly recommended Lord El Melloi II, who survived the largest-scale subspecies Holy Grail War in history, for the position instead. (However, the El Melloi clan’s stance is conservative, and El Melloi II’s own position is neither conservative nor reformist, maintaining a complicatedly neutral stance.)
    Fortunately, both of them are well aware of the threat of subspecies Holy Grail Wars, and their views match in that they prioritize resolving the situation over the gains for their respective factions.
    Rocco is a collection maniac, and yet by contrast is quite sloppy with what he collects. He’s the type to be completely neglectful by using Mystic Codes that activate just by having them on hand. He has stated in quite a carefree manner, “It’s fine as long as I have just Mystic Codes that resist against curses”. No, it’s not fine. He doesn’t involve himself much with the students, so there are lots of rumors like “The old man’s private room is becoming more and more of an entirely different world every year” about him.

    Nigromancies magecraft [Others]
    Necromancy magecraft. The style of magecraft that Shishigou Kairi uses.
    Necromancy falls under the magecraft systems of both communicating with the dead and curses among the departments within the Association of Magi, and the term specifies all magecraft styles that primarily use and process corpses. Even after the soul has vanished, a magus’ body continues to have extremely potent magical properties, so the corpses of magi are more useful than regular corpses. Besides magi, corpses of things like beasts with magical properties are also highly valued by necromancers. For instance, a Phantasmal Species can be made into a suitably strong Mystic Code. Shishigou Kairi processes pieces of corpses such as these for every use he could. For example, he used things like monkey hands, owl eyes, and the hearts of magi.
    Shishigou Kairi’s Mystic Codes were very high quality, and most of all were easy to use since the Mystic Codes that he made from corpses lacked negative factors such as “regret” and “malice” attached to them (while these increase a Mystic Code’s power, it proportionally raises the possibility of it going berserk). And those who should have fallen into ruin ended up becoming the subject of conversation among magi again—that includes the story of how Shishigou Kairi’s Magic Crest was turned poisonous, though.

  38. [v] Character material - Merem Solomon

    Introduction - Merem Solomon
    The Fifth of the Burial Agency. Number 20 of the 27 Dead Apostle Ancestors. In Ciel’s opinion, an annoying senior. Collects treasures from all ages and places.

    The reason he affiliates with the Burial Agency is supposedly in order to get closer to the sealed treasures of the Church.

    Originally, he was a divine child (planet terminal) that could manifest peoples’ wishes and communicate with animals. His arms and legs were torn off and worshiped in order to prevent him from ever leaving the village.

    The reason his limbs were cut off is because of the religious belief that a divine child must not take on a mortal’s form, and also qutie simply to prevent such a convenient tool from escaping.

    (His circumstances resemble those of a certain Angra Mainyu, but Merem actually is a divine child.)

    Merem would have simply lived the rest of his life as the villagers’ plaything, but was noticed by the Crimson Moon, who was coincidentally passing by.

    The Crimson Moon, who thought that “the power to put into shape the wishes of the people” was quite amusing, declared to the villagers that he would slaughter them all at dawn. “If you want to live, then use your wishes to try and kill me,” he said, and the game began.

    The villagers’ wishes, “We don’t want to die”, were truly ugly but strong.

    Without thinking of the burden on Merem, who manifested them into reality, the villagers kept on imagining “convenient divine beasts” to challenge the Crimson Moon.

    Of course, those kinds of beings could never win against the Crimson Moon.

    There was no end to the villagers’ wishes, but with only a little time left before daybreak, Merem reached his limit and died. The remaining villagers died, cursing Merem and the Crimson Moon.

    …After that.

    When the sun rose above the horizon, the Crimson Moon gave the dead Merem a big fat kiss, and revived him as a Dead Apostle.

    “How amusing. You may live as you see fit. You have drawn many pictures of what could replace your arms and legs, correct? The wishes of those others were ugly, but yours were masterpieces.

    ―――Idols like that would be adequate to bear the burden of being your limbs.”

    Entranced by the Crimson Moon’s words, Merem imagined four idols from the religious temple that the villagers built, gave them the power to be his limbs, and stood on the ground like a person for the first time.

    Afterwards, he held a kind of adoration towards the Crimson Moon, and became a Dead Apostle who swore his allegiance only to the Crimson Moon --- Brunestud.

    After the 27 Ancestors’ separation from the True Ancestors and the Crimson Moon’s demise, it was assumed that he went into reclusion, but for some reason he began to affiliate with their enemy, the Holy Church .

    Introduction: Demonition
    Merem’s special power. A first-ranked spiritual evocation power.

    It is able to embody others’ wishes, but interestingly enough, not his own. Merem possesses a truly strong power, but can’t do anything by himself. In all senses, he’s like a demon himself.

    While it resembles the manifestation of fantasies, Merem’s demon summoning takes the wishes of people as a model, and makes something similar after applying his own dreams.

    The demons’ powers are warped by peoples’ images, but the mold itself is done by Merem’s image of it. Also, the magnitude of their power changes based on Merem’s prana input.

    Given Merem’s personality, he’s not good at manifesting realistic or calculating demons.

    In the end, he’s just a Peter Pan living in a fantasy world. The drawings he’s good at and the fantasies that he wants to draw are “the type of demons that you’d see in a fairy tale”.

    Source: Tsukihime Dokuhon “talk”

    He appears in a small episode several years after Tsukihime.

    A one-man monster battle. He’s related to King Solomon in name only.

    Although it’s just a plan, he’s planned to appear in “the dark six”. …Really, I wonder what kind of story it’ll become…

    Nasu: Botany and curses. The research into reaching the Root that led him to the Einzberns was not an aside. He thought eternalizing the soul would also prove the existence of Ghost Liners.
    Takeuchi: Is Heroic Spirit summoning the Einzbern's?
    Nasu: Heroic Spirit summoning is Clock Tower magecraft. The Einzbern are the end of alchemists who wanted to achive "materializing the soul" just once. The inital thought was if the Einzbern system (the Holy Grail) couldn't do this, at least it could summon Heroic Spirits.

    Norwich [Organization/Other]
    A pseudonym for the Faculty of Modern Magecraft.
    Alternatively, the “Daddy Long Legs” family of the Clock Tower.
    Having been fortunate with money for generations, the Norwich family has a tradition of adopting people of interest, causing the name to spread throughout the Clock Tower. Once upon a time, Adashino Hishiri and Heartless bore the name, but later cut their ties with them. Neither of which was a particular concern to Norwich, due to their strict philosophy of “It’s not worth pursuing those who flee.”
    The name Norwich came to be associated with the Faculty of Modern Magecraft due to the strong backing the Norwich family provided when it was being set up as one of the twelve main Faculties of the Clock Tower.
    While the current head of Norwich has taken an interest in El-Melloi II, due to their complex political situation, Reines has decided it is best for them to keep their distance. After all, she had long since given up hope for her brother to possess such a sense for politics.

    El-Melloi Classroom [Organization/Other]
    Supervised by Lord El-Melloi II, a classroom where Modern Magecraft is taught by three to five professors (fluctuating over time).
    For a time the El-Melloi Classroom was the only place teaching Modern Magecraft, so there are some who use the terms interchangeably. Strictly speaking, however, the El-Melloi Classroom is only a single part of the Faculty of Modern Magecraft, a small seminar of about fifteen students. Including auditing students, that number jumps to about fifty. Left alone, there would be a flood of students joining officially, but there may or may not exist a self-governing body of students within the classroom keeping strict control of it. And there may or may not be a black market for tickets to gain entry.
    In one memory scene, Waver borrows money from Melvin in order to purchase the classroom. Really what he is purchasing is “the right of have a classroom in the headquarters of the Clock Tower.” A classroom in the Clock Tower is something like a castle, so at the time Waver had to borrow enough money to buy a castle.
    Furthermore, during the course of the events of Case Files, the number of teachers and students in the Faculty of Modern Magecraft grew considerably, reaching the numbers they have today.

    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.
    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. Even during the Holy Grail War, he went with Fiore to Romania as her backup. There, Command Spells appeared on him and he ended up being made in charge of Berserker.
    He essentially followed the creed that magecraft is an accessory to human life, and he had not the slightest intention to devote his entire life to magecraft. 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.
    At the same time, Caules also has abundant present-day knowledge, 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. 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.
    After the Great Holy Grail War, he spent his days in shame while being watched by the Association of Magi in London… However, one day, Caules had his class changed with a single phrase by a certain long-haired and mean-eyed person with a very high position, 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.
    “No way, I want to live a normal and mediocre life. I don’t want to get involved with these people.” Dear Caules-kun thought this while sighing softly as he gave a sidelong glance at the optimistic and thoughtless genius who was making a ruckus in a nearby seat.
    …It seems that person will be making an appearance in a different work soon, but don’t mind, don’t mind.

    ちなみにエルメロイ二世はいかつい頬でロン毛という玄人好みのルックスになりますが、いつも不機嫌そうな顔で実際、不機嫌。弟子たちへの悪態は尽きることありませんが、メチャクチャ面倒見がいい「デレ期のないツンデレ先生」と言われている。
    一方、エルメロイ教室に入らざるを得なくなったニホンの魔術師(ミニスカニーソ、黒髪、赤い服)は、弟子入り半年間はエルメロイ二世の悪態指導にうんざりしたものの、「あれ、この人ツンデレじゃなくて、単に超生真面目で実力主義者で厭世家で、おまけに正義の人なだけじゃないの?」と気がついたとかなんとか。

    Secret Autopsy Division - Management Branch [Organization]
    The organization responsible for the management of the mining town of Magisfair within the Spiritual Tomb of Albion.
    They possess a tremendous amount of data regarding the people and materials taken into Albion.
    The number of entrances to Albion are incredibly few, and though each one is in the hands of the Management Department, the number of officially recognized excavators that attempt to sneak out Talismans from the Tomb is endless, thus necessitating their tight control.
    And though the official entrances have been locked down, a number of portals leading from the Tomb to the surface have appeared, leading to a slew of disappearances and graverobbings.

    アルビオンに降りられる入り口はごく少数しかなく、管理部門がすべて押さえているのだが、正式に登録された発掘者でも呪体をこっそり持ち出そうとする者は後をたたないため、重要な部門。
    なお、正式な入り口は管理部門が押さえてるが、突発的に地上に転移ポータルが発生することもあり、これによる神かくしや盗掘もしばしば。
