Location[edit | edit source]

[v] Lord El-Melloi II Case Files material: Secret File -File 01: Clock Tower: Location, p.019

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.

File 02: Chronology of the Clock Tower[edit | edit source]

[v] Lord El-Melloi II Case Files material: Secret File -File 02: Chronology of the Clock Tower

Chronology of the Clock Tower

Circa 960 BC

Death of Solomon the King.​
The Age of Gods does with his death concludes.​
The expression of Mystery — the thaumaturgical energy within the atmosphere — does with this as a threshold likewise truly come to thin; becoming as zero as of arriving upon the Occidental Calendar.​

the Eve of AD

Birth of the wielder of the 1st Magic.​


00 AD

Come of the magi that yet remained from the Age of Gods, the establishment of the foundation of the Thaumaturgical Association.​
A movement whereby 「even that Mystery will eventually vanish, let us preserve the past in the capacity of an academic discipline」.​
However —​

Circa 20 AD

Substantiation of the 5th Imaginary Aspect.​
A new World begins.​
It becomes a matter that Thaumaturgy and Mystery continue to persist in a different form.​
The other magi of the Age of Gods who have occulted themselves as of the Wandering Sea and the Academy at Atlas​
cannot endorse said movement, but maintain friendly relations of a recognition of fraternity as fellow students of Mystery.​
This is in subsequence the Thaumaturgical Association.​

Circa 20~100 AD

The Director and associates are diligently active.​
Thanks to this, students of thaumaturgy grow in number, and the liveliness of the discipline once manifest as of the Age of Gods is reclaimed.​
From approximately this point forth, Dead Apostles manifested as of the thaumaturgical world at frequency, deeming magi as their enemies, and so assailing them.​

Circa 300 AD

Battle in the city as of the forests of the night; the Millennium Castle.​
There occurred a violent clash between Crimson Moon and the Wizard Marshal Zelretch ... it is said.​

Circa 300~500 AD

Upon the continent, in the countries of Western Europe, the influence of the Holy Church expands.​
The Thaumaturgical Association declines.​
The ravages of the battle against Crimson Moon are vast.​
The winter of thaumaturgy.​
The thaumaturgical cities established by the Association are in the dispute against the Holy Church shut down one by one.​
On account that Crimson Moon was annihilated, Gransurg Blackmore does in the midst of despair accept annihilation.​
Though he reared disciples, in a battle against an Executor who chanced upon him on a night of a blue Moon, he gracefully accepted defeat.​
「It was upon a night like this that I encountered that person.​
 That being the case, perhaps I ought to die on such a night.」​

Circa 500 AD

The True Ether (the 5th True Aspect) that remained as of the island of Britain vanishes.​
A contingent of magi establish their headquarters upon the island of Britain.​
The beginning of 『The Clock Tower』.​

Circa 600~900 AD

The excavation of the Spirit Tomb Albion.​
Advancing in their excavation of Britain's subterranea, the Clock Tower acquires a vast thaumaturgical asset.​
As of the waning thaumaturgical world, the Clock Tower becomes as a light of hope, and numerous magi and individuals of means therein gather.​

Circa 900 AD

Justeaze is born.​
The Holy Maiden of the Einzberns.​
The 3rd Magic communicated since a thousand years prior is at last substantiated.​

Circa 1000 AD

At the Clock Tower, the prodigy Barthomelloi makes an entrance.​
The basis of the Lords — the magi of the aristocratic class — is established.​

Circa 1200 AD

The Clock Tower does in name and substance become as the center of the thaumaturgical world.​
The institution of the system of Governorship is completed.​
(Being that at this time, the Faculty of Policies was treated still as an academic faculty, there were twelve faculties.)​

Circa 1400 AD

Zepia assumes posting as the Director of the Academy at Atlas.​
Said posting subsequently persists unto present day.​

Circa 1600 AD

The Faculty of Policies is in its manner of existence viewed as problematic, and its standing as an academic faculty is annulled.​
Subsequently, it becomes as the Department of Policies, and the twelve academic faculties are amended to eleven.​

Circa 1800 AD

England, the Industrial Revolution.​
Though this was as a severe blow to the thaumaturgical world, escalation in the complexity of knowledge and technology did likewise confer certain benefits.​
Being as unto the Holy Church — which had by pushing 「a singular worldview」 expanded its influence — it constituted an unparalleled attack, the Association even provided backing.​
Contemporaneous, the internal conflict on the matter of whether to regard the Industrial Revolution with affirmation did subsequently become as the root cause of the dispute between the Aristocratic and Democratic Factions.​
The genre of modern thaumaturgical theory could no longer be disregarded, and was appended to fill the slot of the lost twelfth faculty.​
However, even that it had been appended in the capacity of a twelfth faculty, being as modern magecraft was itself still held in contempt, no governor (Lord) was at this stage yet assigned.​

Circa 1994 AD

Lord El-Melloi dies in Japan to a trivial ritual known as the War for the Holy Grail.​

Circa 2004 AD

In continuity, the 5th War for the Holy Grail initiates.​
It is rumored that the 3rd Magic is reenacted.​

2015 AD

As of an Adjacent World, a Grand Order is issued.​

(translation by Fallacies)
















朱い月が滅びたため、 グランスルグ・プラックモア、失意のうちに滅ぴを受け入れる。​

Adashino Hishiri[edit | edit source]

[v] Lord El-Melloi II Case Files material - Encyclopedia: Adashino Hishiri [Person], p.096-097

Adashino Hishiri [Person]
The snake of the Faculty of Law. Her elemental affinity is Water. Her specialty is Poison.
In this story, she was El-Melloi II’s first rival. If Heartless is his Moriarty, then she is his Irene Adler. Though the chance of developing a romantic relationship with someone was never there for El-Melloi II.
In reality, much of her life was shaped by her desire for revenge against her father. Heading into the depths of the Spiritual Tomb of Albion on his own, he abandoned his ex-wife and son entirely out of nowhere upon his return. Giving birth to her through his second wife, he died a coward. In order to prove the worthlessness of her father, she joined the family of Norwich before slipping into the Faculty of Law, the easiest route for a magus with no pressure from their own bloodline.
As a result, she coincidentally received information from the Faculty of Law’s Information Division, and became strangely obsessed with a certain Doctor Heartless. She began pursuing him, thinking there was a possibility he was her long lost brother, Adashino Kurou.
If El-Melloi II had “a first rate sense of being a magus but a second rate skill,” then Adashino was “a magus of first rate skill, but no sense of being one.” Though her nature is closer to that of a Spellcaster, her place in the Faculty of Law which has given up pursuit of the Root fit her perfectly.
Though not explicitly stated within the work, her glasses are Mystic Eye Killers.
Just as her brother Heartless (Adashino Kurou) once possessed, she bears Mystic Eyes of Finding. In her investigations, the reason Hishiri was able to reach such precise results so quickly was because of those eyes. Of course within the Faculty of Law they were of great use, but they were also used to help find her brother.
As a bit of a digression, she has been entertaining herself greatly with the arrival of the new, plump, and somewhat out of place member of the Faculty of Law.


Add[edit | edit source]

[v] Lord El-Melloi II Case Files material - Encyclopedia: Add [Mystic Code/Other], p.097

Add [Mystic Code/Other]
The Mystic Code sealing the Noble Phantasm Rhongomyniad, possessed by Gray.
Created by the Witch Morgan, she based the artificial personality within it on the knight with the least adoration for King Arthur from the Round Table. Thinking about the Atlas Contract Incident, that trick seemed more like a plot to “prevent the return of King Arthur” at that time. It was like a strange trick to say “I’ll help with your revival, but I don’t want it to succeed.”
Before being created, its true form was that of the Logos React Replica. Using the extreme calculative ability inherited from the Seven Superweapons of the Atlas Institute, it continues to seal Rhongomyniad within it. In its released form, it can of course take the shape of a scythe, but also that of a hammer, shield, hook spear, or even a boomerang. It is also able to use its immense calculative ability to display a portion of the power of Rhongomyniad itself. The appearance of the knight in “The Atlas Contract” occurred due to the same theoretical principle. Their personality was a result of a complex merger of that original knight’s and the present day Add’s, so strictly speaking it belonged to neither of them. That was likely why it was able to finally deploy the Pseudo Phantasm.
For Gray, Add was her only friend for a long time.
The name Add comes both from the word “addition” and from the tail end of the word “Rhongomyniad.”


Aozaki Touko[edit | edit source]

[v] Lord El-Melloi II Case Files material - Encyclopedia: Aozaki Touko [Person], p.096

Aozaki Touko [Person]
The Grand-class doll maker that has appeared in some form or other in a multitude of Type Moon works.
In the Case Files timeline, her Sealing Designation was removed when she made her appearance. However, since a certain ending in Fate/stay night has her described as “Sealing Designated,” that will probably only last for a few more years…
Between things like the special “box” she keeps inside for special occasions, to the crystal familiars she collects that fire beams like a certain little sister, in a story like Case Files where magi are the main attraction, her abilities become even more impressive.
After being given entirely free reign in the Iselma incident, she began to follow the Heartless case entirely out of a sense of curiosity. In the middle of the incident, however, the Neutralist faction commissioned her for a formal investigation. In normal circumstances she would have simply refused the assignment, but at that time the compensation she was supposed to receive from Iselma had been reduced to ash (by her own hands). Oh, what a travesty, doll maker!
Furthermore, due to circumstances, she already had experience visiting the Spiritual Tomb of Albion.
From the start, though only for a short time, the reason for the removal of her Sealing Designation was because Millieune Carillon, head of Sealing Designations and the one responsible for removing her Designation, and her were…


Ash Lock[edit | edit source]

[v] Lord El-Melloi II Case Files material - Encyclopedia: Ash Lock [Other], p.100

Ash Lock [Other]
Standard equipment used by the Executors of the Holy Church.
Unlike the Black Keys that Executors are also known for, which take a considerable amount of training to use effectively, the Ash Lock is a powerful Conceptual Weapon that can demonstrate great ability with a minimum of training. Normally they are disguised as gloves or boots, but by removing their tag, they revert to their original form.
Used by a large number of Executors, they come in a variety of forms. While Ilumia elected for a hand-to-hand fighting type, versions using things like small blades or crossbows also exist.


Asheara Mystras[edit | edit source]

[v] Lord El-Melloi II Case Files material - Encyclopedia: Asheara Mystras [Person], p.096

Asheara Mystras [Person]
One of the five who entered the Spiritual Tomb of Albion with Kurou, and who eventually ended up as one of Doctor Heartless’ students. Her elemental affinity is Water. Her specialty is Elemental Conversion Magecraft.
As was stated during the story, she is the adopted daughter of Magdanel. The story of how she ended up being adopted is essentially as Magdanel explained. Of course, Magdanel decided to include her in the Albion Investigation team in order to get ahead of the other factions, but the idea of going out of his way to adopt her formally was simply because he took a liking to her way of life.
She was not particularly unhappy with Kurou’s faint feelings for her. So, when Kurou entreated Magdanel for guidance, and he inevitably ended up making contact with Heartless, she also entered Heartless’ tutelage, trying numerous times to get him back on the right path.
But in the end, all her efforts were for naught, and she ended up having to take his life herself. Perhaps she was the one most manipulated by the Clock Tower’s scheming
“Hey, Kurou.”
“What’s up?”
“I don’t particularly dislike the underground, you know. It’s scary, but there is so much more to be gained than that.”
One is left to wonder whether she remembers that conversation from long ago.


Atram Galiasta[edit | edit source]

[v] Lord El-Melloi II Case Files material - Encyclopedia: Atram Galiasta [Person], p.097

Atram Galiasta [Person]
An oil magnate. In the Fifth Holy Grail War, he was Caster’s Master.
The original Fate/stay night and Case Files were set to take place in the same world, but upon seeing his first appearance in the UBW anime, the author was brought to tears of laughter. Though in his first appearance he was described as a middle-aged man of medium build, when it was said he would “change a little” for that adaptation, that “little change” ended up being enormous!
The basic concept was a Shinji with a decent amount of skill and success (See Fate/stay night). With El-Melloi II’s concept as a “Shinji’s Revenge” story, the two had an odd sympathy for each other, though perhaps that was the natural result. As the UBW anime demonstrated, he was fundamentally a bad person, but being a bad person doesn’t mean he had no redeeming or lovable qualities whatsoever.
After Volume 3, up until the point he departed for the Fifth Holy Grail War, he visited El-Melloi II about once a week to brag, ensnaring himself in a diplomatic battle between himself, Melvin, and Yvette. In a way, you could call them the three monsters hanging around El-Melloi II. There was even an incident shortly before he left for the Fifth Holy Grail War in which the three of them, once and only once, worked together.
By the way, while in the middle of Volume 2 he was wary of the Lord of the Faculty of Creation Inorai, he had no such fears of Touko. “Someone from the Far East being a Grand must be some sort of mistake,” was his thought process.

原点である『Fate/stay night』と『事件簿』は同じ世界に位置づけられるのだが、初めてアニメUBWを鑑賞した際の著者は、大いに吹き出したものである。初出では中肉中背の中年と書かれていた彼が、ちょっぴり変わるとは聞いていたのだけれど、ちょっぴりの振れ幅がでかい!
路線としては、成功して実力もそこそこある慎ニ(Fate/stay night参照)。もともとのコンセプトが、慎ニリベンジだったII世と妙な共感をするのも、自然のなりゆきというか。アニメUBWを観れば分かるように、基本的には悪人なのだが、悪人だから善性や愛すべきところがないかといえば、そんなことはないのだった。

Bersac Blackmore[edit | edit source]

[v] Lord El-Melloi II Case Files material - Encyclopedia: Bersac Blackmore [Person], p.108-109

Bersac Blackmore [Person]
Blackmore’s gravekeeper.
Most of Gray’s combat ability was beaten into her by this man.
If wondering why his own combat abilities were so high, though meaning behind it has more or less been lost at this point, he was the last descendent of the Blackmore bloodline. The magecraft he used in his five minute exchange with Sister Ilumia was also a product of his family, who were a family of Soul Carriers.
In Gray’s hometown, (aside from Magdalena, who was only acting the part) he was perhaps the only person that didn’t think of her as some sort of divine child. Though she was named to succeed him as gravekeeper, to have her life ended because she became the vessel for some past hero was too sad for him.
Though Bersac, being poor with speech, never was able to say such a thing…his feelings were certainly passed on to Gray.


Bestial Magecraft[edit | edit source]

[v] Lord El-Melloi II Case Files material - Encyclopedia: Bestial Magecraft [Magecraft], p.103

Bestial Magecraft [Magecraft]
The name given to the field of magecraft that utilizes one’s bestial nature.
While this magecraft eats at the minds of those of the Glascheit family, many other forms of it are more mild. For example, enhancing one’s sense of smell to be like that of a dog, enhancing one’s legs to run as fast as a horse, or enhancing one’s eyes to see in the dark like a cat.
Possession by a fox or a dog god, famous in Japan, are also examples of this magecraft.


Blackmore Cemetery[edit | edit source]

[v] Lord El-Melloi II Case Files material - Encyclopedia: Blackmore Cemetery [Site], p.108

Blackmore Cemetery [Site]
The cemetery from Gray’s hometown.
The land protected by Bersac Blackmore.
Originally, the land was inhabited by a family of magi that manipulated spirits, and regarded birds as sacred. The name Blackmore is apparently drawn from a powerful Dead Apostle connected to this family. Though the Dead Apostle in question perished some two thousand years ago, the family took his name as a sign of respect for him. At this point, that family’s original name is no longer known.
At any rate, that family has now become one of gravekeepers, and though temporarily, they have been entrusted with the remains of King Arthur.


Byron Valueleta Iselma[edit | edit source]

[v] Lord El-Melloi II Case Files material - Encyclopedia: Byron Valueleta Iselma [Person], p.104-105

Byron Valueleta Iselma [Person]
The manager of the Twin Towers of Iselma.
In a literal sense, the creator of the Princesses of Gold and Silver.
As the Princess of Gold (that was originally Caleena) said, Byron’s methods had become obsolete for the stage they had reached. Though Iselma’s results had taken a sudden jump, because of that jump, they had reached a point where they needed to rethink their methods.
Unfortunately, Byron’s lack of talent to be able to do so could be said to be the greatest reason for the tragedy that occurred there.
After the incident, Iselma’s magecraft was almost entirely abandoned, and Byron spent the remainder of his life like the cast off shell that it was…an all too common ending to the lives of modern magi.
Though it was mentioned in the story, the one who provided Byron the funds necessary to purchase the linden leaf, the one who guided all his moves, and the one who used the memory alteration spell to hide all of this, was of course Heartless. He believed that Iselma’s ritual of "aligning the lives of humans to the motions of the planets" was necessary for his own ends.


Caleena and Rejina[edit | edit source]

[v] Lord El-Melloi II Case Files material - Encyclopedia: Caleena and Rejina [Person], p.101

Caleena and Rejina [Person]
Twin maids serving the Princesses of Gold and Silver at Iselma.
Obviously, for the “production” of the Princesses, the ones who took care of them would also need a similar Concept. For that reason, Iselma set up a system to produce a large number of twins among their branch families.
Because of this underlying system, Aozaki Touko was able to turn Caleena into the Princess of Gold with her plastic surgery.
Furthermore, as mentioned in the story, there is actually a third sister still living in their hometown. Even if she didn’t know about the sad fate of her older sisters, El-Melloi II sent her a letter that she might at least find some happiness.


Caules Forvedge[edit | edit source]

[v] Lord El-Melloi II Case Files material - Encyclopedia: Caules Forvedge [Person], p.100

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.


Cigars[edit | edit source]

[v] Lord El-Melloi II Case Files material - Encyclopedia: Cigars [Mystic Code], p.106

Cigars [Mystic Code]
One of the few Mystic Codes carried by El-Melloi II. The tobacco inside was specially put together by El-Melloi II himself. There are many varieties, from those used for defence, for setting up Bounded Fields, for stabilizing the mind, and for activating Magic Circuits.
As to why he decided on cigars, after being forced into the position of El-Melloi II, a panicked Waver Velvet was searching for some way to make himself look more Lord-like, to which some drunk magus mentioned that “A cigar and a suit are a man’s weapons.” Or something like that.


Clock Tower[edit | edit source]

[v] Lord El-Melloi II Case Files material - Encyclopedia: Clock Tower [Organization], p.104

Clock Tower [Organization]
The stage for this work, the largest of the three branches of the Mage’s Association.
It’s headquarters is in the suburbs of London. For more details, please see the secret files.
⮕Secret File: “Clock Tower,” “Chronology of the Clock Tower”


Draft[edit | edit source]

[v] Lord El-Melloi II Case Files material - Encyclopedia: Draft [Production], p.102

Draft [Production]
For pictures/images found in the books, Mr. Miwa Kiyomune gathers a collection of materials after investigating all things related to magecraft. The author then develops the rest almost entirely on his own, after which the designer makes a final clean draft.
As a result, the mining town in the Spiritual Tomb of Albion was misprinted as Agisfes. The name Magisfair, found in this book, is the correct spelling. My deepest apologies…


Druid Street[edit | edit source]

[v] Lord El-Melloi II Case Files material - Encyclopedia: Druid Street [Place], p.104

Druid Street [Place]
The place where El-Melloi II’s apartment resides.
As with any university professor, he can often be seen at cafes in the area groaning over some thesis or other that he is working on.
Druid Street is an actual place in London. The place’s name, openness, character, and atmosphere were all taken into account when selecting it as the place for his home, but upon actually visiting the place for research purposes, the author was really moved, thinking “Ah, this really does look like a place he would live.”


El-Melloi Classroom[edit | edit source]

[v] Lord El-Melloi II Case Files material - Encyclopedia: El-Melloi Classroom [Organization/Other], p.100

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.


Erosion[edit | edit source]

[v] Lord El-Melloi II Case Files material - Encyclopedia: Erosion [Mystic Code], p.099

Penetrating Blade of Gold(Erosion) [Mystic Code]
A Mystic Code in the form of a dagger, passed down in Gray’s hometown.
According to legend, it was handed down to them by the Black Madonna, to be kept until the time of King Arthur’s return. The blade itself possesses the ability to separate the mind and soul from the flesh. It was intended to separate Gray’s mind and soul from her body, allowing the spirit of King Arthur to inhabit her body in the final stages of the ritual.


Faker[edit | edit source]

[v] Lord El-Melloi II Case Files material - Encyclopedia: Faker [Servant], p.106-107

Faker [Servant]
An Extra class created by Heartless in order to summon imposters and body doubles.
Within the story of Case Files, it refers to Iskandar’s body double, who ignores the Ionian Hetairoi. Her Personal Skill “He is Another Iskandar (Fake)” grants her some of Iskandar’s Personal Skills, as well as a distorted version of the Noble Phantasm Gordius Wheel, a sight that shook El-Melloi II to his core on their first meeting.
Her true identity is that of Hephaestion’s younger twin sister, born at the behest of the King of Conquerer’s mother Olympias, to protect him for his entire life.
Though it may be hard to imagine her as a body double for a man like Iskandar who was over two meters tall, her role as a body double was a magical one.
As such, she had no name.
After separating from Olympias, Iskandar tried to give her one numerous times. Since doing so would weaken the spells redirecting curses from him to her, however, she rejected each time. Not only that, but for the sake of protecting Iskandar from various forms of curses and magecraft, she developed numerous counter-intelligence schemes. That is why the descriptions left behind about Iskandar don’t match the appearance of the Servant Iskandar at all.
The Class name of Faker is, in a way, the first name she ever received.
As she didn’t leave behind any anecdotal stories in history, her status as a Servant is rather weak, but she still boasts a considerable and comprehensive combat ability. This results not just from having powerful skills or Noble Phantasms, but from the wide variety of physical and magical options available to her in combat, and her ability to keenly recognize which of those options is optimal for each situation.
Just as she said during the story, “Being a warrior is a question of both body, mind, and spirit.” Her love of battle and the skills that saw her through numerous battlefields made it possible for her and Heartless to break through the Spiritual Tomb of Albion alone.
Despite how much of a mismatched pair the two of them may seem, her partnership with Heartless is one she finds unexpectedly comfortable.
Though it was never discussed in detail, the way Heartless’ life changed after being betrayed by his students and her unwillingness to forgive the betrayal she suffered in the Wars of the Diadochi demonstrated a clear unity of values betwen them.

The Dionysus that Faker references normally corresponds to the god of wine Bacchus, but the magecraft she uses actually points to the maddened Zeus himself. In short, an omnipotent god gone mad. Abandoning reason and embracing infinite chaos is truly suitable as a source for magecraft.
Of course, as one who serves the god of wine, nevermind Iskandar, she regularly drank all of his close friends and advisors under the table.
In addition, the reason she rejects the summons of the Ionian Hetairoi comes from the following flow of events. “She is called by Iskandar” ⮕ “Immediately before being summoned, she is given the fundamental knowledge from the world about the Wars of the Diadochi” ⮕ “Before the summoning is completed, she rejects it.” A summoned Heroic Spirit, if not from the Holy Grail then from the World itself, receives knowledge about the present era. In the case of Ionian Hetairoi, it is the latter that provides the information.
Were she to be summoned again as a Servant, as usual she would forget everything that happened during the course of these incidents. But what if she were summoned as part of the Army of the King? What if she were summoned in a Singularity that ignored the correct chronology of history, or by a system completely different than the one set up in Fuyuki?
The answer will remain a mystery until such an event occurs.



Father Fernando[edit | edit source]

[v] Lord El-Melloi II Case Files material - Encyclopedia: Father Fernando [Person], p.107

Father Fernando [Person]
A priest dispatched to Gray’s old home.
Though a member of the Holy Church, he is neither an Executor, nor a man with any connections to the central organization. Though he has knowledge of Mystery and magecraft, he is fundamentally just an ordinary person. For places where the potential need for aggressive action is low, people like this are often sent.
Depending on the situation, rather than resorting to violence, people who are able to gently win over others show better results. The Holy Church was well aware of that.
For that reason, after reporting about Gray’s transformation, he suffered no small amount as Ilumia was dispatched and their village became a front line of sorts.
The prayer Gray offered in the Castle of Separation was taught to her by Fernando. “When someone has been driven mad by loss, even if only a little, offer solace first. The question of the existence or lack of faith can be dealt with later.”
Such was the way he taught Gray of the balance struck by the Blackmore Cemetary, no matter that it clearly contradicted the teachings of the Holy Church.


Flat Escardos[edit | edit source]

[v] Lord El-Melloi II Case Files material - Encyclopedia: Flat Escardos [Person], p.107

Flat Escardos [Person]
One half of the El-Melloi Classroom’s legendary duo.
The blessed unwanted child. Or, more frankly, the idiot genius. Originally a character from Fate/strange Fake. For most of his lines, the author received assistance from his fellow writer, Narita Ryōgo. Though, Case Files and Fake have a number of key premises that are extremely different.
His elemental affinity is Void.
Normally, a magus is bound by what magecraft they specialize in. But in Flat’s case, he recklessly creates a new magical formula every time, and hardly ever relies on a preexisting magical Foundation. For this reason, he has the apparently glaring weakness of “being completely unable to use the same magecraft twice,” but he doesn’t care so much about that. Maybe that’s what it means to be a genius.
In most cases, he uses one of the following incantations.
Casting proactively: “Game Select” (“Interference, Start”) + “Game Over” (“Observation Complete”)
Casting reactively: “Play Ball” (“Intervention, Start”) + “Game Set” (“Situation Resolved”)
That being said, while the ruby text of “Game Select” may remain constant with each cast, the kanji are decided at the time of casting. This decision is based both on Flat’s whims at the time and any changes he wants to make to the spell’s formula through the meaning of the incantation.
Though he may seem like an omnipotent cheat character, his hand-to-hand fighting ability is surprisingly zero. Or rather, negative. He fails out of every single self defense class. That is why even after Svin graduated, Flat was still unable to graduate from the El-Melloi Classroom. The scene of Svin coming back to the classroom and chastising Flat for still causing trouble for their professor has become a regular occurrence.
“I’ll ask just in case. Why did you do a drop kick for self defense?”
“Because it’s cool, Professor!!”
“Alright, die then. There’s no way a drop kick would ever be considered in a realistic self defense scenario, you absolute idiot!”
“But Professor, I believe he only failed due to his inexperience.”
“…please, Miss, don’t encourage him.”

天恵の忌み児。もしくは率直に天才馬鹿とも。出典は『Fate/strange Fake』。セリフのほとんども同作者の成田良悟の監修を受けている。もっとも、事件簿とFakeではいくつか前提条件が大きく異なっているのだが。

Flueger[edit | edit source]

[v] Lord El-Melloi II Case Files material - Encyclopedia: Flueger [Person], p.107-108

Flueger [Person]
One of the invitees to Adra, the Castle of Separation. An Astrologer. His elemental affinity is Wind. His aria, "Lead me," is also from Astrology.
Depending on the horoscope, he uses twelve knives marked for the twelve signs of the zodiac, and is able not only to predict the future but also to manipulate cause and effect within an extremely limited area. For example, things like creating a future where an opponent’s attack doesn’t hit.
He was actually one of the survivors of the Spiritual Tomb of Albion, as described in Grand Roll. Though his reputation as a master-killer and labyrinth returnee were decided rather early, the details about the Spiritual Tomb of Albion underneath the Clock Tower were decided rather late, causing quite some issues for the author.

剥離城アドラの招待客のひとり。占星術師。属性は風。詠唱の「Lead me」も、占星術より。ホロスコープに応じて、黄道十二星座のナイフを使い分け、未来を占うばかりではなく極めて局所的ながら因果操作をやってのける。たとえば、相手の攻撃があたらない未来を引き寄せる---などである。

Geraff[edit | edit source]

[v] Lord El-Melloi II Case Files material - Encyclopedia: Geraff [Person], p.102

Geraff [Person]
The master of Flueger, residing within the Spiritual Tomb of Albion.
One of the survivors.
At the hands of a certain mercenary magus, his Magic Circuits and Magic Crest were destroyed, after which he returned to the Tomb. Content to bear the title of a traitorous disciple, Flueger assisted his master in faking his death.
The source of his tenacity was his desire to stand triumphant over the chosen ones of the Clock Tower.
Once Lord El-Melloi II, the one who could be called at the top of those chosen ones, bowed his head in deference to him, he at long last felt he had been repaid for the trials of his life, and he agreed to cooperate.


Geryon Ashbourne[edit | edit source]

[v] Lord El-Melloi II Case Files material - Encyclopedia: Geryon Ashbourne [Person], p.102

Geryon Ashbourne [Person]
The deceased man who set up the very first incident in Adra, the Castle of Separation.
A magus bearing the name of “the monster of Heracles’ tenth labor.” The miracle of the man known as the Master of Restoration was, after a fashion, realized in his generation. But that miracle was not the restoration the rumors had promised, but the use of a Magic Crest to take control over another’s body…


Ghosts[edit | edit source]

[v] Lord El-Melloi II Case Files material - Encyclopedia: Ghosts [Other], p.110

Ghosts [Other]
The things Gray is scared of.
Spiritual existences are numerous and varied in the World of Magecraft, but in this case it refers to ghosts of the dead. Rather than being a “spirit,” it is a lingering energy, possessing a kind of impulse that imitates the personality of the deceased.
The reason Gray is so overly afraid of these Ghosts is that she is particularly susceptible to these impulses, which can greatly influence her own personality.
…in truth, that function was built into her on purpose, so that she might receive the mind of King Arthur.


Gray[edit | edit source]

[v] Lord El-Melloi II Case Files material - Encyclopedia: Gray [Person], p.101-102

Gray [Person]
The hero(ine) of the story. The closest disciple of El-Melloi II.
Taking the detective novel role of Watson, she was pretty much the first character designed for the series. Case Files changed dramatically over the course of its early development, but she alone survived the process mostly unchanged. “A girl who excelled as a gravekeeper, but was afraid of ghosts. And the Noble Phantasm she holds is King Arthur’s…” Such was her catch copy.
While there was originally some distance between her and El-Melloi II, the decision to have their relationship gradually deepen was decided at the same time it was decided to make Case Files a series. Making El-Melloi II an important person for her, not as a romantic partner but as a teacher, was also decided at that time. She certainly came a long way since calling him nasty in the first volume.
Furthermore, while El-Melloi II proposed that she was “likely a descendant of a distant relative of King Arthur” in the first volume, while that wasn’t just a handwave explanation at all, it would be more correct to say she belonged to a family which was imprinted with the essence of King Arthur. Gray’s family possessed the essence of King Arthur’s physical body, while the Corpse King had the essence of King Arthur’s spirit planted within it, sleeping until the time when the Corpse King should come.
Ten years prior, her appearance suddenly transformed, at the same time that Saber (Artoria) was summoned in the Fourth Holy Grail War. At that time, in response to the awakening of that essence, Add’s personality also activated, but in exchange Gray lost her other friends. To the people of her hometown, she had become an object of worship. For that reason, when El-Melloi II was scared by seeing her face for the first time, she took an interest in him, deciding to accompany him.
Gray most definitely doesn’t hate her current face. But, the idea of it changing scares her. Her lone friend is one that awoke due to her transformation. In that case, did that mean her existence had any value? Shouldn’t she just allow herself to completely become that past hero?
And in the Grand Roll case, as the Servant Saber was summoned once more in the Far East, her body would transform once again.

As a disciple, Gray is extremely devote.
Though saying that, for someone used to the austere lifestyle of a gravekeeper, her current life feels rather lax to her. Being left entirely to her own devices when she wasn’t doing work for El-Melloi II, the first two months had her in a state of bewilderment. Of course she had effectively none of the basic knowledge expected of a magus, so her adaptation to the El-Melloi Classroom has been largely a result of cooperation from Flat and Reines. Svin was basically like that from the moment he first met her, so there was no cooperation there.
“You’re always taking care of my brother, so isn’t there something we can do for you in return?”
“Not really, but…”
“If…if it’s okay, just for a little longer, if I could keep things like this…”
Standing in front of the fireplace, with a sad smile, Reines suddenly offered her a new kind of sweet to try. Or something like that.
By the way, as far as English spelling, her name could be spelled either “Gray” as in American English, or “Grey” as in British English, and I struggled for a time to decide which would be appropriate. Since she wasn’t born in either country, and I heard that “gray” is perceived in both countries as being halfway between black and white, while “grey” is a paler color, I decided on the American spelling (to emphasize being in the middle of black and white).



Heartless[edit | edit source]

[v] Lord El-Melloi II Case Files material - Encyclopedia: Heartless [Person], p.105

Heartless [Person]
Also known as Adashino Kurou.
His elemental affinity was originally Earth, but was changed by his experience in the Land of the Fairies.
In this work, he stands as the greatest rival of El-Melloi II. Or one could call him El-Melloi II’s shadow. While El-Melloi II could be characterized as one so lacking in talent he is always being saved by his students, Heartless can be characterized by one who is so peerless in ability that he was inevitably betrayed by his students.
The magecraft he uses is wide and varied.
The Faculty of Modern Magecraft didn’t have much in the way of family lines, and so worked to preserve numerous forms of magecraft of relatively shallow histories. Heartless’ area of study was each and every one of those. Though it is hard to say how much he was aware of it, due to a certain kind of time paradox, having lead the dual lives of Adashino Kurou and Heartless had a large influence on him.
Adashino Kurou received all kinds of guidance from his future self, Heartless, causing his abilities to grow at an unprecedented rate. To those around him, it seemed like the pouring of water from one bottle into another, but there was nothing supernatural about it. In reality, his future self knew his own nature and thought process so well that he could provide the perfect teaching and guidance for him, thus transferring all of his skills.
…in short, it was an homage to a certain Archer and his relationship with Emiya Shirou in the Fifth Holy Grail War.
His ability to completely flip his heart was, as El-Melloi II recognized, not an ability so much as it was a defect. His heart, left behind in the Land of the Fairies, once connected to the body that was now like an empty shell, made a kind of pseudo-teleportation possible for him, an ability encroaching on the domain of True Magic. However, it was an act similar to inserting a scalpel into one’s heart and flipping it over.
In the Rail Zeppelin incident, he casually opened his heart twice, but in reality his back was really up against the wall.
He was the bearer of Mystic Eyes that could steal and take over the vision of others, the Mystic Eyes of the Usurper.
Originally, they were similar to the Mystic Eyes of Finding, only able to find lost things that they were specifically paired with — rare to be sure, but all in all rather low level as far as Mystic Eyes are concerned. However, due to his time spent in the Land of the Fairies, they transformed into “Mystic Eyes that could steal even the vision from Mystic Eyes.”

During the story, he spent ten years on his plan to turn the world of magecraft on its head.
This was not because of some anger at Kurou’s friends among the survivors (or his four students, from Heartless’ perspective) betraying him. Having experienced that betrayal twice after jumping through time, he considered that situation to be “a simple result of karma.”
Water flows from high to low. Things burned turn to ash.
As such, if the system itself never changes, the same things will happen over and over for all eternity. That was why he left behind his position as head of the Faculty of Modern Magecraft and, using every method imaginable, sought to upend the world of magecraft known to the Clock Tower.
In this case, the first thing he needed was information to overwhelm the other magi.
Carefully picking his allies, he ended up joining forces with Lord Marisbury of the Faculty of Astrology, secretly orchestrating the Mystic Eye Bearer Serial Killings seven years prior. After acquiring numerous sets of Mystic Eyes by doing so, Heartless learned of the truth of the Holy Grail War that the Clock Tower failed to consider seriously, and at the same time decided to keep that information hidden.
As a result, Marisbury also recognized that the Holy Grail War wouldn’t be able to satisfy his objectives, and he put an end to his own plans…but that is another story.
At any rate, Heartless, knowing about the truth of the Fourth Holy Grail War and the existence of Servants, moved on to the next step of his plan. In short, through the use of the Divine Spirit Iskandar, the plan for the revival of the magecraft from the Age of Gods. The conspiracies of the Clock Tower were nothing more than scrabbling over Mysteries that were already in decline. So, it was better to return to the Age of Gods, where such intrigue was unnecessary, he thought.

As an aside, his partnership with Faker was an enjoyable one for him.
Within his life, where he had already predicted his own betrayal, the companionship of Faker who was raging at being betrayed by the Ionian Hetairoi was something he could accept without consideration. In most cases the relationship between Master and Servant is riddled with tension, but regardless of Faker’s opinion of Heartless, Heartless’ opinion of Faker was that he could rest assured in their partnership.
Part of the reason much of the malice in Faker’s personality seemed to disappear in Grand Roll was no doubt because of Heartless’ attitude in that respect. Between the times of the Rail Zeppelin and Grand Roll incidents, the pair of them got involved in numerous incidents beyond the knowledge of El-Melloi II. Through it all, Heartless always seemed to be strangely enjoying himslf, an attitude that always brought a frown and a “what’s with this guy?” from Faker.
In comparison to the rest of his unfortunate life, the last two months of his plan to upend the world of magecraft were, despite the tremendous upheavel, incredibly calm.




Hecatic Wheel[edit | edit source]

[v] Lord El-Melloi II Case Files material - Encyclopedia: Hecatic Wheel [Noble Phantasm], p.108

Wheel of Demonic Heaven(Hecatic Wheel) [Noble Phantasm]
Originally, the Noble Phantasm of Iskandar, Gordius Wheel.
Due to the skill “He is Another Iskandar (Fake)” that Faker possesses, she has also gained this Noble Phantasm. However, while Iskandar’s chariot is pulled by a pair of divine bulls, hers is pulled by magically animated bone dragons.
Compared to the original Gordius Wheel, it’s Rank and power have diminished considerably, but in exchange it is capable of many more things. One is the autopilot feature shown in Grand Roll. In addition, if Faker pours her own magical energy into it, it is capable of exhibiting a level of power similar to the original Gordius Wheel.
The name “Hecatic” is derived from the goddess Hecate, from whom Faker’s lineage of magecraft from the Age of Gods finds its source. Though faint, there is some connection to the Caster of the Fifth Holy Grail War.


Heine Istari[edit | edit source]

[v] Lord El-Melloi II Case Files material - Encyclopedia: Heine Istari [Person], p.104

Heine Istari [Person]
One of the invitees to Adra, the Castle of Separation.
He has the double elemental affinity of Fire and Water. His specialty in magecraft is “Change.”
For a human magus, he is in the strongest class of combat ability. A pure and noble “Knight.”
Furthermore, as was mentioned in the Kadokawa paperback edition, he mentions that the title of knight wasn’t given to him by “her Highness the Queen.” His reasoning for the use of “Her Highness” rather than “Her Majesty” is that, “someone who is only a member of an earthly royal family isn’t qualified for the highest title.” A very magus-like sentiment. At any rate, he has a background in France, and the character of one who was once a member of the Holy Church.
The fate he reached at the Castle of Separation could only be described as a result of coming up against the wrong opponent. An issue of compatibility, as is so often the case in Type Moon.
Taking care of Rosalind up until the very moment of his death, his wish was entrusted to Seigen. Though ultimately Seigen was the culprit behind the Adra case…even so, there was no betraying the wish of that knight.


Hephaestion[edit | edit source]

[v] Lord El-Melloi II Case Files material - Encyclopedia: Hephaestion [Person], p.108

Hephaestion [Person]
Faker’s older brother. The true Hephaestion.
Iskandar’s closest friend…though he didn’t think so himself.
While his sister spread such information around, Hephaestion was aware that was simply counter-intelligence. Hephaestion was inserted at Iskandar’s side so as, even if only a little, to reduce the chance of him being attacked.
His sister’s relationship with Iskandar’s other retainers was rather poor, a daily pain in Hephaestion’s stomach as he tried to find a way to mend those relationships. If alive today, he would no doubt be accused of having a siscon streak in him. In a way, one could say that fear became accurate after his death.
At any rate, when Hephaestion was summoned by Iskandar’s Noble Phantasm Ionian Hetairoi, he was the first to notice his sister’s absence.
If summoned as a Servant, he would gain a number of Iskandar’s Skills and Noble Phantasms from his own Personal Skill, “He is Another Iskandar (True).” The difference between his version and his sister’s “Fake” version of the skill is that his version does not copy the acquired abilities at a reduced rank. Conversely, it would be difficult to use them in the ways Faker does.


Ilumia[edit | edit source]

[v] Lord El-Melloi II Case Files material - Encyclopedia: Ilumia [Person], p.099

Ilumia [Person]
A nun from Gray’s hometown.
Such was her front, actually being an armed agent of the Holy Church.
The illegitimate child of a Cardinal, she was entrusted to the Church in order to keep the affair a secret, but that was a history that didn’t bother her in the slightest. Instead, she one hundred percent accepted her current position of delivering punishment without hesitation to those that stray from the will of God.
Within the Church, she was a typical representative of the Conservative faction, and as such was somewhat opposed to Father Fernando, but on a personal level she was quite fond of him.
A hard puncher who rampages with the Ash Lock, a weapon of the Executors. Though she typically uses her fists to strike out at the world, she is capable with her feet as well.
The author is particularly fond of her slightly thicker lips and freckled complexion, like one might see in a foreign drama. Furthermore, the “preference” Father Fernando pointed out of hers was, pretty much just as he said, that cheeky girls like Reines are right within her strike zone.


Inorai Valueleta Atroholm[edit | edit source]

[v] Lord El-Melloi II Case Files material - Encyclopedia: Inorai Valueleta Atroholm [Person], p.098-099

Inorai Valueleta Atroholm [Person]
Aozaki Touko’s teacher. Head of one of the Three Great Aristocratic Families, Valueleta. Lord of the Faculty of Creation, she was a Brand, a magus of the highest practical rank.
As that consequently places her as the teacher of Araya Souren and a certain other individual, more care was taken in writing her for Case Files than any other character. That being said, when asked about her general image, the response that came back was. “Got it. I’ll leave it all up to you, Mr. Sanda.” The insane image Type Moon had garnered up to that point had just been reinforced. One could say that was the point the author came to terms with the fact that Case Files was going to be accelerated as a whole.
She possesses a triple affinity for Earth, Water, and Wind. Her specialty is Sympathetic Magecraft. Though she only showed a brief look at her abilities in the series, she is especially skilled with magecraft using sand, and the small bag she carries around with her at all times can spill out an immeasurable amount of it. Within the series, Touko says something along the lines of “Please spare me one of your pictures at least.” That is because she knows full well what fate awaits those who are drawn in her sand pictures.

In a manner of speaking, she is the idealized image of a magus. She navigates the political sphere as easily as she breathes, and progresses her research in magecraft as easily as she walks. The fact she strongly supported the Sealing Designation of her favorite pupil Touko is a simple manifestation of that nature. Thinking there were issues of greater importance that took precedence, such a conclusion was only natural for her, and so she didn’t hesitate for a moment in her decision. Feeling no sense of contradiction or conflict in her own character, she is like a mountain ascetic still entrenched in the ways of the world, a perfect and powerful woman.
Personifying the concept that what the people of any given age loved was to be considered art, unlike many magi of her advanced age, she thoroughly enjoys brand new technologies, like her iPod and her personal computer. Though she as an air of approachability to anyone regardless of their relative standings, her total lack of any pretense has the terrifying effect of feeling like she can see through you right down to your very core.
By nature, such pretense and complexity is necessary for humans.
These are inventions created by humans so that society can move along unhindered, after all.
For a member of one of the Three Great Aristocratic Families, removing that necessary element from everything is a suitable kind of monstrosity, don’t you think?
Additionally, her name was given by Nasu Kinoko.
As someone in a position of such enormous power in the Clock Tower, like putting the eyes in a Buddha, the author begged Nasu to be the one to name her.



Iskandar[edit | edit source]

[v] Lord El-Melloi II Case Files material - Encyclopedia: Iskandar [Heroic Spirit], p.098

Iskandar [Heroic Spirit]
The King of Conquerors, Iskandar. Also known as Alexander the Great.
A great Heroic Spirit, whose exploits were only matched by a small handful of others across the entirety of human history.
Summoned in the Fourth Holy Grail War under the class of Rider, he was the Servant of Waver Velvet. His Noble Phantasms were Gordius Wheel, the Wheel of Heaven’s Might, on which Faker’s “Hecatic Wheel” was based, as well as the Rank EX Ionian Hetairoi, Army of the King, which could summon forth tens of thousands of Heroic Spirits.
Though he never really appeared in Case Files himself, his influence was enormous.
Even Heartless himself had an undeniable eye for him. Due to his great exploits in life, some say he was chosen by the twelve historical Gods of Olympus…Heartless’ plan began from that anecdote.
Though it can’t be said whether the words Gray heard at the end of Case Files truly belonged to him or not, the resurrection of the box in her hands was unquestionably a miracle.


Islo Sebunan[edit | edit source]

[v] Lord El-Melloi II Case Files material - Encyclopedia: Islo Sebunan [Person], p.098

Islo Sebunan [Person]
A seamster working for the Iselma family.
The dresses of the Princesses of Gold and Silver were made by his hands. His hair was tied up in a showy manner, and his speech was slow and faltering.
He was childhood friends with the true culprit Maio, as well as the Princesses of Gold and Silver and their attendant maids. He was aware of Maio’s feelings for Diadra, the Princess of Gold, since long ago. When the true culprit was revealed, he must have been more shocked than anyone else.


Jeanmario Spinerra[edit | edit source]

[v] Lord El-Melloi II Case Files material - Encyclopedia: Jeanmario Spinerra [Person], p.102

Jeanmario Spinerra [Person]
A guest on the Rail Zeppelin. A magus who uses spiders.
Despite being a magus, he is a media celebrity, being the star of the show Jeanmario Spinerra’s Zombie Cooking, which won popularity across Great Britain. Using the wealth procured from his television show, he hoped to purchase a set of Mystic Eyes from the Rail Zeppelin with which he would get back on the easy path for magecraft, but alas it was not to be. Apparently, having used his new connection with Adashino Hishiri, he continued to pop up here and there around the Clock Tower after the incident.


Karabo Frampton[edit | edit source]

[v] Lord El-Melloi II Case Files material - Encyclopedia: Karabo Frampton [Person], p.100-101

Karabo Frampton [Person]
An Executor of the Holy Church, who boarded the Rail Zeppelin in order to remove his own Mystic Eyes.
He was far too kind a person to be an Executor. Unable to control the Mystic Eyes of Transience, they were only capable of overwriting his own memories with those of another. Even so, his willingness to continue the exhausting work of an Executor despite that is a testament to his superhuman willpower.
Though he was competent as an Executor…he was of course not at a level where he could cross swords with a Servant. As Heartless alluded to in the fight between him and Faker in the Rail Zeppelin case, his loss of his ordinary vision led to a specialization of the Mystic Eyes, and so he didn’t hesitate in letting them steal the entirety of his life force. For him, it was a fight for revenge that he staked his entire life on, one he had to win at all costs for the sake of the children he would protect. And he won.
The Mystic Eyes of Transience are Jewel Class Mystic Eyes.
Thinking of something to serve as the "eyecatcher" for the Rail Zeppelin, I thought that if Mystic Eyes of Death Perception are a type of future sight, then what would be the ultimate extreme of hindsight? The result was, as seen in the story, the ability to draw forth anything perceived in the past. That attack was something that couldn’t be protected against by any physical or magical means. It didn’t care about Noble Phantasms or Personal Skills. An anomaly that couldn’t be prevented except by interfering with cause and effect itself.
In addition, the idea of time being visible as bubbles is an approach to time being considered by modern science now.


Kayneth El-Melloi Archibald[edit | edit source]

[v] Lord El-Melloi II Case Files material - Encyclopedia: Kayneth El-Melloi Archibald [Person], p.102

Kayneth El-Melloi Archibald [Person]
Though he doesn’t appear in this work, the name of Lord El-Melloi II’s professor comes up numerous times.
The previous Lord El-Melloi. The Lord of Mineralogy. After establishing his status as a prodigy by reaching the rank of Pride in his teens, he went on to achieve the rank of Brand in his twenties. From the development of Volumen Hydrargyrum which was recognized as a Supreme Mystic Code, to his betrothal to the daughter of the Lord of Spiritual Evocation, his life could be described as little more than smooth sailing.
But, that was only true until he participated in the Fourth Holy Grail War.
Expecting the Grail War to be just another obvious victory to add to his long list of accomplishments, he gathered numerous Mystic Codes before setting out, only to tragically fail and lose everything.
The name of the Spellcaster that destroyed both his Magic Circuits and his Source Crest was Emiya Kiritsugu.
Later, the Sealing Designated man Heartless brought to the Divine Spirit Iskandar’s ritual was a magus of the name Emiya, his father. Finding the name of the one who killed his teacher at the end of Volume 8 must have been like a shot through the heart to El-Melloi II.


Leandra[edit | edit source]

[v] Lord El-Melloi II Case Files material - Encyclopedia: Leandra [Person], p.111

Leandra [Person]
The auctioneer of the Rail Zeppelin.
One who knew the former owner. While riding the train of the Dead Apostle, she was responsible for moving hundreds of millions of dollars worth of money, which was thought to be a cause of significant anxiety for her.
In the original plans, her right hand had a large number of Mystic Eyes implanted within it to aid in the process of transplanting, but it was never shown in the story.


Linden Leaf[edit | edit source]

[v] Lord El-Melloi II Case Files material - Encyclopedia: Linden Leaf [Other], p.109

Linden Leaf [Other]
The great sacrifice of a Grand class doll maker.
After trying so desperately to acquire it from that black market auction, learning that the Talisman had been burned and destroyed, it was no wonder Byron called her an idiot.
By the way, as far as catalysts that would be able to summon that great hero, this wasn’t the only one.


Lord El-Melloi II[edit | edit source]

[v] Lord El-Melloi II Case Files material - Encyclopedia: Lord El-Melloi II [Person/Title], p.111-112

Lord El-Melloi II [Person/Title]
It goes without saying, the main character of this story.
His real name is Waver Velvet. One of the few survivors of the Fourth Holy Grail War.
His elemental affinity is Earth. His specialty in magecraft is Counteraction1. A destroyer of Mystery — though his talent for magecraft is mediocre, he was blessed with an incredible talent for deconstructing.
In reality, he doesn’t really possess all that much more knowledge than other magi. When he became the head of the Faculty of Modern Magecraft, he gained access to an incredible amount of materials, but with the amount of work he is saddled with, the amount of those materials he actually has time to study is limited.
His real talent is the speed and accuracy with which he can connect the people and events happening before him with his knowledge.
Just as Gray pointed out several times, rather than the Mystery or the incidents themselves, he looks more at the magi behind them. Why does such a Mystery exist? Why did they reach for such a Mystery? His eye for judgment is, in the end, reserved for judging people.
In particular, his impression that “this riddle is meaningless” that he expressed at the beginning of the Castle of Separation incident shows how well that ability of his was suited to that incident. In contrast, after the Rail Zeppelin incident, once he began pursuing Heartless, that same eye for judgment is what allowed Heartless to drag him along. Without cooperating with Heartless, the riddle couldn’t be solved — such a methodology was the perfect kind of hacking to use against El-Melloi II.
After the events of Case Files, in order to stop Gray’s transformation, he turned to the numerous thesis and essays left behind by his predecessor, Kayneth El-Melloi Archibald. As a result, he ended up reanalyzing and reclassifying the huge number of theories his predecessor had idly scribbled down…
And that was the beginning of the grimoire known as “Lord Kayneth’s Encyclopedia of Secret Arts,” which would someday be written.


Luviagelita Edelfelt[edit | edit source]

[v] Lord El-Melloi II Case Files material - Encyclopedia: Luviagelita Edelfelt [Person], p.111

Luviagelita Edelfelt [Person]
The most elegant (hyena) in the world.
Daughter of the illustrious Edelfelt family of Finland. For each incident it was planned for one guest from other Type Moon works to be included, and though it was decided (by the author) in the same way to include her, she was the celebrated first guest.
Her elemental affinity is Earth. Unlike the Red Devil that is fated to come some day, she is not an Average One with an affinity for all five elements, but her ability to unleash a wide variety of magecraft through the use of a plethora of gems gives her a level of skill that is not at all inferior.
Apparently having little interest in the Clock Tower’s own ranking system, though she turns up for the El-Melloi Classroom and the Faculty of Mineralogy, she has no particular enthusiasm for the Clock Tower’s other political games.
For a girl who travels from her home base in Finland, plundering secrets and Mystic Codes from magi around the world, the internal conflict of the Clock Tower seems like little more than a storm in a teacup.
“Though I recognize authority and history, they are by no means absolute.”
Rather, she would likely adore a gentleman she could respect from among the Lords and Nobility. As such, Luvia has a deep-seated desire to support someone she can respect. To write it in a way players of CCC would understand, in short, SG1.
Though her too-perfect ringlets are entirely proof of her status as a tsundere, the dere side of her character has yet to make an appearance in Case Files. A tsundere isn’t made up of just one person, after all.
The Edelfelt family are a rarity among magus families, taking the name of Scales in that they produce a pair of twins in each generation that both become magi. As such, of course, Luvia has a younger twin sister. As the complete polar opposite of Luvia, she is an introvert with an elemental affinity of Fire. Her marriage has already been arranged, and it is a thing of mutual love.
In addition, though it never came up in the story as it wasn’t particularly relevant, the Command Spell used at the end of Grand Roll was actually one that should have been entrusted to the overseer of the Holy Grail War. In short, it was one secretly carried back to their home country by Luvia’s ancestor, who participated in the Third Holy Grail War.


Magdalena[edit | edit source]

[v] Lord El-Melloi II Case Files material - Encyclopedia: Magdalena [Person], p.109

Magdalena [Person]
Gray’s mother.
Ten years ago, when Gray suddenly transformed to have the appearance of that past hero, she immediately fell to her knees in worship. Seeing in her a fervor that far surpassed that of the other villagers, and considering her closeness to Gray in general, the leader they referred to as Grandmother entrusted her with the dagger Erosion.
Gray’s desire to have someone dislike her face was greatly influenced by her mother. To see her once loving mother suddenly seem to forget everything and turn to her as an icon of worship must have been a repulsive sight.
As was described in the story, it was all a facade.
In order to prevent her daughter from being overtaken by that past hero, Magdalena fought against the traditions of the village for half of her lifetime. Even if it meant her daughter would hate her, even if her daughter would be consigned to a life of lonely despair, she was prepared to do anything and everything in her power to stop that from happening.
Furthermore, the one who taught her how to interfere with the village’s ritual was Heartless, who was studying it from the outside. In exchange for information that only an insider could possess, he taught her how to break the ritual.
Later, using the results of that research, he attempted to use Faker as a vessel to reincarnate the Divine Spirit of Iskandar.


Magic Crest[edit | edit source]

[v] Lord El-Melloi II Case Files material - Encyclopedia: Magic Crest [Magecraft/Other], p.109

Magic Crest [Magecraft/Other]
Passed down through the generations along with a family’s history, the greatest treasure of any magus bloodline.
Like an additional organ added to the body, it won’t be compatible with anyone from outside the magus’ family. In the world of magecraft, the reason older families have such an overwhelming advantage can be narrowed down to primarily because of the number of magic circuits, and the existence of these Magic Crests. The magecraft engraved within that Crest serves both as a magus’ greatest power, and as a curse binding them until they pass it down to their own descendants.
At present, El-Melloi II’s Magic Crest is being held by Melvin. Though some people may have witnessed it for the first time in the last episode of the anime, it is truly nothing more than a “square frame.”
In short, there’s nothing inside of it at all. In exchange for there being no curse tied to it, it contains nothing but what future generations might fill it with. That’s why El-Melloi II is so hell bent on recovering that Magic Crest.
“It’s the number one piece of collateral that guarantees a magus cannot betray you. Taking that away from them is like taking way all the meaning their lives ever had, after all.”


Magical Foundation[edit | edit source]

[v] Lord El-Melloi II Case Files material - Encyclopedia: Magical Foundation [Magecraft/Other], p.109

Magical Foundation [Magecraft/Other]
A magical theory engraved into the world. Its strength is greatly influenced by the faith and the collective unconscious of the people.
As a Mystery propagates, it loses power. However, the reason they become more stable as knowledge about them spreads, though it may seem contradictory at first glance, is because of this system of Magical Foundations.
In the present day, the most widespread and most powerful Magical Foundation is the “Teachings of God,” used by the Holy Church.
Of course, there also exist families who develop magical formulas entirely independent of such Foundations, and weirdos like Flat who “build an entirely new formula from scratch every time.”


Maio Brishisan Clynelles[edit | edit source]

Maio Brishisan Clynelles [Person]
A pharmacist working for the Iselma family.
Though he didn’t especially stand out as a student of the Faculty of Lore, that was obviously because he spent almost his entire life for the sake of Iselma’s research.
His faint feelings for his childhood friend were something unsuited to a magus. As such, when El-Melloi II exposed how he had been so dominated by such half-hearted worldly desires, his feelings of guilt drove him to despair.

The second word to come out of his mouth is always “Mama.” The third is “women.” The fourth is “Money,” but before he can get to his fifth, he’ll start vomiting blood. Truly, from the bottom of his heart, a useless magus.
At present, he is the only one remaining who refers to El-Melloi II by the name of Waver.
Though his skill as a Tuner of Magic Crests is legendary, it was never something he wanted. His persistent habit of vomiting blood isn’t a gag at all. Without his magical hematopoietic medicine, it would be an ordeal to survive even a single day with his body.
As a result, the proper use of his Magic Circuits was rather difficult, so even though he had the talent to reach the rank of Brand, he retired from the competitive life of a magus early. After that many people, including his own father, deserted him.
But as a result, perhaps as some strange coincidence, he learned of his extraordinary talent for manipulating the Magical Circuits and thus Magic Crests of others. The father that deserted him returned with nothing but smiles, and many times more people than left him flocked to his side.
But, after going out to meet the returning crowd, Melvin had changed a little.
“This isn’t because of my environment or anything. I was a monster like this right from the beginning.”
So he says, but there was no doubt he began to test those around him more after that incident. This happened around the same time he lent Waver the money to visit the Far East after he bragged about turning the Clock Tower upside down.
His mother is a powerful woman, who even that Magdanel acknowledges. Even when Melvin’s father abandoned him, his mother stayed by his side. The tools he uses for his Tuning work that he carries around everywhere were all put together by his mother. The strangely high price for them on the Rail Zeppelin stems from the fact they are a Mystic Code of the Renaissance era, and possess a level of precision difficult to reproduce in the current age.
Though his first appearance was at the end of Volume 4, he existed in the proposal document written up a year prior to the release of Volume 1, acting together with Gray as the deciding factors for the direction Case Files would take. If Gray is a character symbolizing the present day El-Melloi II, then Melvin is the character that symbolizes his past.


Mystic Eye Projector[edit | edit source]

[v] Lord El-Melloi II Case Files material - Encyclopedia: Mystic Eye Projector [Other], p.109

Mystic Eye Projector [Other]
The trump card of the Rail Zeppelin.
Using the main car Rircapello, and the Spiritual Nature Regression-type Lense Roseeye, it pushes the abilities of a given Mystic Eye to its limits.
By pushing them to the absolute limits, it completely incinerates the Mystic Eye in question to exhibit a power that is hundreds to thousands of times it’s normal capabilities. Super weapons are quite romantic, don’t you think?


Norwich[edit | edit source]

[v] Lord El-Melloi II Case Files material - Encyclopedia: Norwich [Organization/Other], p.104

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.


Old Man Shardan[edit | edit source]

[v] Lord El-Melloi II Case Files material - Encyclopedia: Old Man Shardan [Person], p.102

Old Man Shardan [Person]
Upon purchasing the El-Melloi Classroom, the first second grade professor El-Melloi II was able to convince to join.
Though his Magic Circuits and family history were nothing particularly special, he had an oddly broad number of connections in the Clock Tower, and boasted a number of underhanded tricks. Up until El-Melloi II’s abduction by Reines, a large portion of the Classroom’s ability to run smoothly could be traced back to this man.


Olga Marie Asmleit Animusphere[edit | edit source]

[v] Lord El-Melloi II Case Files material - Encyclopedia: Olga Marie Asmleit Animusphere [Person], p.100

Olga Marie Asmleit Animusphere [Person]
Daughter of the Lord of Astrology, Marisbury.
In Fate/Grand Order she serves as the head of the Humanity Preservation Task Force Chaldea, but in the Case Files timeline a number of necessary conditions for that were not met, and so that future will not occur.
In the Rail Zeppelin case, she immediately broke down after losing her attendant, Trisha. Though considering her age at the time, it was somewhat inevitable. With the lessons learned from the Rail Zeppelin incident and the memory of Trisha in her heart, she reappeared in the Grand Roll incident, this time to show off her capability as a Lord’s successor (though her self confidence leads her to overstep her bounds from time to time).
After the events of Case Files, she keeps in contact with Reines. As fitting for the successor of a Lord, sometimes in cooperation, and sometimes for her own conspiracies.
…I wonder, when will she realize that with a single finger, she can bend and twist the fates of numerous magi, all while smiling from on top?

『Fate/Grand Order』においては人理継続保障機関カルデアの所長となる彼女だが、事件簿の世界線においては、いくつかの前提条件が異なり、その未来は訪れない。

Orlocke Caesermund[edit | edit source]

[v] Lord El-Melloi II Case Files material - Encyclopedia: Orlocke Caesermund [Person], p.099-100

Orlocke Caesermund [Person]
One of the invitees to Adra, the Castle of Separation. A user of Butterfly Magecraft. His elemental affinity is Wind.
Though he first appeared with the impression of a last boss, he ended up showing a rather good-natured side to El-Melloi II, and so ended up like that. His unexpected adaptability and understanding of Modern Magecraft likely stems from his distance from the political games of the Clock Tower, allowing him to judge based on merit alone.
As a magus capable of reaching the rank of Brand, he nevertheless found himself drowned in love.
Instigated by Geryon himself, Orlocke came to have a relationship with Geryon’s wife. Born from that affair, Granid Ashbourne was genetically Orlocke’s son.
The boy he ended up engraving his Magic Crest and personality on to at the end of the story was named Shanon. Perhaps that was the name Orlocke had intended to give to his own child someday…
Perhaps the sickness that struck down Orlocke was the same that claimed the lives of Geryon’s wife and son…
And perhaps all of that was part of Geryon’s plan from the beginning.
For now, it all remains a mystery.
But, his incantation of “Perform a dance” is something El-Melloi II will never forget.

ただ、「Perform a dance」と祈るような彼の呪文を、II世はずっと忘れることはなかった。

Papilio Magia[edit | edit source]

[v] Lord El-Melloi II Case Files material - Encyclopedia: Papilio Magia [Magecraft], p.106

Butterfly Magecraft(Papilio Magia) [Magecraft]
In this work, the magecraft used by Orlocke Caesermund.
Its premise is the inherent Mystery in the process of a butterfly changing to an effectively entirely different mode of life between the larval, pupal, and mature stages of its development.
As Orlocke himself described it, it is “the manipulation of the gap between what is certain and what is uncertain,” interference in the act of transformation itself being the core of this strain of magecraft. That was why he was able to transplant his memory and personality into a homunculus made from his own blood and semen.
Having caught the eye of the master of the Castle of Separation Geryon Ashbourne, he enlisted Orlocke’s help, and was able to create a method for transplanting Magic Crests into others. …though as the story describes, it was far from complete, and came with heavy side effects (though those side effects were Geryon’s goal from the start).

剥離城のかつての主人ゲリュオン・アッシュボーンはその特性に目をつけて、オルロックに協力させることで、魔術刻印を他者に移植する方法を見出した。……とはいえ、本編の通り、これはけして完成はせず、多大な副作用(ゲリュオンからすればこちらが目的) を伴うものだったのだが。

Primeval Battery[edit | edit source]

[v] Lord El-Melloi II Case Files material - Encyclopedia: Primeval Battery [Mystic Code], p.102

Primeval Battery [Mystic Code]
An imitation created by Flat at the behest of El-Melloi II after he analyzed the spell and Mystic Code used by Atram. As a result, Caules was able to awaken his own talent for Electricity Magecraft, which he was most compatible with.
Because there was no patent for the batteries, there was no problem between them and the Faculty of Law, but Reines’ concern shown by her complaint of “don’t come crying to me when they murder you over it” was perhaps natural.


Princess of Gold / Princess of Silver[edit | edit source]

[v] Lord El-Melloi II Case Files material - Encyclopedia: Princess of Gold / Princess of Silver [Person], p.099

Princess of Gold / Princess of Silver [Person]
The center piece of the Twin Towers of Iselma. Casually written as "a beauty that can’t be expressed by pictures," they were the first on the list of problems for the illustrator Mr. Mineji and the manga artist Mr. Azuma Tou. Who made this character? It was me.
If anything brought to its utmost limit could bring one to the Root, my idea was to follow that premise with a supreme beauty.
But, as a “beauty that can reach the Root,” it had to follow a completely different path than even the beauty of a goddess. For a supreme beauty that included every possibility, is that really something human standards would find beautiful? The answer to that question exists only in the hearts of those who saw those two face to face.
As a bit of a digression, the correct formula for the spell is not a woman and a woman, but yang and yin — in short, a man and a woman as a pair would have been more correct. The reason it didn’t end up that way is that magecraft already includes properties of the moon, which symbolizes yin, so it was modified to balance out the fact the ritual leaned towards that element of yin from the beginning.


Rail Zeppelin[edit | edit source]

[v] Lord El-Melloi II Case Files material - Encyclopedia: Rail Zeppelin [Other], p.109

The Mystic Eye Collecting Train(Rail Zeppelin) [Other]
The stage of the Rail Zeppelin incident, which ushered in the second half of the Case Files story.
The ability to safely extract and transplant Mystic Eyes with one hundred percent certainty was limited to the Rail Zeppelin alone.
Though it originally only ran in the heart of Northern Europe, after being destroyed in battle by a certain Grand class doll maker, the original owner disappeared. Once the Rail Zeppelin had finally been repaired, it began to make appearances throughout the entirety of Europe, even being found in Britain, despite it being entirely surrounded by the sea. Miss Touko was really quite thorough.
The owner’s representative that appeared part way through is like a shadow of the original owner. Only Gray, whose spiritual sensitivity is extraordinarily high, or people like the conductor and auctioneer who had a connection to the original owner in life, can perceive her existence.


Red Devil[edit | edit source]

[v] Lord El-Melloi II Case Files material - Encyclopedia: Red Devil [Other], p.096

Red Devil [Other]
An assassin from the far east that would one day find her way to the El-Melloi Classroom.
Even with Svin’s graduation and the separation of that matchless pair, the chaos within that classroom would not abate.


Reines El-Melloi Archisorte[edit | edit source]

[v] Lord El-Melloi II Case Files material - Encyclopedia: Reines El-Melloi Archisorte [Person], p.110-111

Reines El-Melloi Archisorte [Person]
A true joy-seeker of a girl. Her elemental affinity is Water.
Adopted sister of the previous Lord El-Melloi, Kayneth El-Melloi Archibald.
To be accurate, if going by blood relations, she is Kayneth’s niece. Her mother, being particularly average in her talent as a magus, married into the Archisorte branch family instead of taking her own family’s name, where she had a number of children.
Following Kayneth’s death, the El-Melloi family fell into a state of great internal discord. As a result, just as described in the story, Reines became the successor after it was determined she happened to have the best affinity for the Source Crest. At that time, in order to put a rest to the strife between the Archisorte and Archibald families and demonstrate her right to succession, she accepted adoption into Kayneth’s family. Though, as a continued act of defiance, she still operates under the name Archisorte.
After the events of Case Files, she finally learns to control her Mystic Eyes specialized in precision analysis, and under the tutelage of El-Melloi II, continues to grow her own abilities well in the research field. In the same way she gave a personality to Trimmau, her practical ability to “layer her own magecraft over that of another” is a truly fitting achievement for the El-Melloi name.

Though it’s not demonstrated so clearly in the story, her political maneuvering is vicious. For example, remember how her first meeting with Waver was after she abducted him. The fact she is used to doing such things is a demonstration of her political style.
“There’s no way I would dislike Reines.”
That’s why, despite learning of the numerous conspiracies occurring in the Clock Tower, when Gray said those words to her, it must have been deeply relieving for her.
If one wonders where she learned to be so ruthless in her political dealings and the exercising of her authority, that was influenced greatly by the support she received from a certain butler. During the span of Case Files, however, he was not present, and thus did not appear in the story.



Rhongomyniad[edit | edit source]

[v] Lord El-Melloi II Case Files material - Encyclopedia: Rhongomyniad [Noble Phantasm], p.112

The Lance that Shines to the Ends of the World(Rhongomyniad) [Noble Phantasm]
The Noble Phantasm hidden within the Sealing Mystic Code Add that Gray possesses. Though it is called a spear, its true nature is as the “shadow” of an anchor that fixes the Texture of the World in place.
In order to activate this Noble Phantasm that was once even wielded by King Arthur, a tremendous amount of magical energy is required. In addition to that, the Thirteen Strictures placed upon it are still in good condition, meaning it’s true power cannot be exercised without a majority vote from the Round Table.
In the Rail Zeppelin incident, five such votes were obtained. The names of those knights are ones Gray always remembers with thanks.

“This is a fight for survival.” — Acknowledged, Kay.
“This is a fight against someone much greater than I.” — Acknowledged, Bedivere
“This is a fight where I will not turn my back on my humanity.” — Acknowledged, Gaheris.
“This is a fight for Truth.” — Acknowledged, Sir Agravain.
“This is not a fight against Elementals” — Acknowledged, Lancelot.


Rodin[edit | edit source]

[v] Lord El-Melloi II Case Files material - Encyclopedia: Rodin [Person], p.112

Rodin [Person]
Conductor of the Rail Zeppelin.
Since the Rail Zeppelin ran over leylines, there was a need to accurately perceive their ever-changing paths so that the tracks might follow them. So of course he possessed finely tuned senses, and the skills to manage unstable Magic Furnaces.
In the Grand Roll incident, his ability to lead them to the outer layer of the Spiritual Tomb of Albion came from such skills.


Rosalind Istari[edit | edit source]

[v] Lord El-Melloi II Case Files material - Encyclopedia: Rosalind Istari [Person], p.112

Rosalind Istari [Person]
One of the visitors to Adra, the Castle of Separation, along with her brother Heine Istari.
Due to Heine’s flight from the family, she received the Magic Crest in his stead, but the efforts to accomodate the Crest for her body were badly over-compensated. Because of this, the Magic Crest itself changed in nature, causing it to begin stealing his life force when it was re-transplanted onto Heine. Thus, the plan to seek Geryon Ashbourne, the Master of Restoration’s help, was hatched.
After the incident, with the loss of Heine, Rosalind was wrapped up in the struggle for succession within the Istari family. But, having become aware of this, Reines dispatched Heine’s friend Tokitou Jiroubou Seigen to protect her in the name of the El-Melloi family, a duty that would prove no easy task.
Though Rosalind and Reines don’t get along all that well, she was thankful in some respect for her giving Seigen a manner of relief from his unending suffering.


Rufleus Nuada-Re Eulyphis[edit | edit source]

[v] Lord El-Melloi II Case Files material - Encyclopedia: Rufleus Nuada-Re Eulyphis [Person], p.111

Rufleus Nuada-Re Eulyphis [Person]
Lord of the Faculty of Spiritual Evocation.
Perhaps due to belonging to the Faculty of Spiritual Evocation, which manipulates untold numbers of spirits, he also gives the impression of a dead man. In Grand Roll, he demonstrated a level of power on par with that of the Lord of Trambelio, Magdanel, and Inorai.
The offering of his daughter Sola-Ui for a political marriage demonstrated his expectations for Kayneth, who died during the Fourth Holy Grail War.

Secret Autopsy Division[edit | edit source]

[v] Lord El-Melloi II Case Files material - Encyclopedia: Secret Autopsy Division [Organization], p.106

Secret Autopsy Division [Organization]
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.


Secret Autopsy Division - Excavation Branch[edit | edit source]

[v] Lord El-Melloi II Case Files material - Encyclopedia: Secret Autopsy Division - Excavation Branch [Organization], p.106

Secret Autopsy Division - Excavation Branch [Organization]
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.


Secret Autopsy Division - Management Branch[edit | edit source]

[v] Lord El-Melloi II Case Files material - Encyclopedia: Secret Autopsy Division - Management Branch [Organization], p.106

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.


Secret Autopsy Division - Materials Branch[edit | edit source]

[v] Lord El-Melloi II Case Files material - Encyclopedia: Secret Autopsy Division - Materials Branch [Organization], p.106

Secret Autopsy Division - Materials Branch [Organization]
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.


Svin Glascheit[edit | edit source]

[v] Lord El-Melloi II Case Files material - Encyclopedia: Svin Glascheit [Person], p.103

Svin Glascheit [Person]
One half of the El-Melloi Classroom’s legendary duo.
His elemental affinity is Fire, but it’s been somewhat changed. His specialty in magecraft is Regression.
Many believed that if it were not for Flat, he would be an entirely ordinary person, but with Gray’s arrival that illusion was put to rest. The incident that made the El-Melloi Classroom aware that their title of legendary pair extended to their weirdness was one month before the Adra incident.
Magecraft that borrows the abilities of animals exists all over the world, but the Glascheit family’s strain of magecraft is rather eccentric. It functions not by drawing out a powerful bestial nature, but by transforming oneself wholesale into an animal. Nerves, muscles, bones, and even the cerebrum are rebuilt in a process rivaling the theoretically extinct werewolves.
Speaking from the conclusion, rather than a magus, it would be more accurate to describe Svin Glascheit as a vessel for magecraft. That was why he became so captivated by Gray, who was similarly created to be a vessel for a past hero.
This is, in a certain sense, similar to Karabo, who was constantly being overtaken by the memories of others due to his Mystic Eyes. Having managed to overcome this unique facet of his nature, if Svin had come to meet Karabo at some point, perhaps he could have given him some advice.
Within the story, Svin acquired the rank of Pride. This is not just an acknowledgement of his personal abilities, but Svin himself, who was the crystallization of the Glascheit family’s research, was also taken into consideration. On top of that, having achieved the rank in his teens is a feat rarely seen in the Clock Tower, so it was understandable for El-Melloi II to be struck by such deep feelings on that occasion.


Thirteen Strictures[edit | edit source]

[v] Lord El-Melloi II Case Files material - Encyclopedia: Thirteen Strictures [Other], p.102-103

Thirteen Strictures [Other]
Aware of the strictures placed upon the holy sword, thinking “such a form is beautiful,” the holy spear accepted those same limits. Just as the holy sword, it carries within it the prayers of thirteen knights.
Furthermore, in the illustration of the Thirteen Strictures included in the Rail Zeppelin case, the image of Bedivere included his prosthetic arm. This arm was created for him by a blacksmith he knew, for use when he attended ceremonies. For him, actions taken by the Round Table required the utmost in respect and decorum. Whether the silver arm that appeared in a parallel world was modelled after this one or not, well…


Tokitou Jiroubou Seigen[edit | edit source]

[v] Lord El-Melloi II Case Files material - Encyclopedia: Tokitou Jiroubou Seigen [Person], p.103-104

Tokitou Jiroubou Seigen [Person]
One of the magi invited to Adra, the Castle of Separation.
The Shugendou he practices is originally something optimized for the Far East, but thanks to his ancestors’ admiration for the West, he also possesses a Magic Crest. Though he is unsuitably good natured for a magus, the fate he met in the Adra incident can be clearly seen in the story.
Though it was thought he would leave the stage at that point, he made a brilliant return in the Grand Roll incident. With the Mystic Eye beneath his eyepatch and his prosthetic arm made from a ghost root, he has an unnecessarily high amount of protagonist power. After inheriting the magecraft of the Castle of Separation and taking care of Rosalind, the younger sister of his departed friend Heine, this author couldn’t help but apologize constantly while writing. “You’re such a good guy. Sorry for putting you through all this.”
After the conclusion of Case Files, he appealed to a number of magic organizations in order to help save Rosalind, but that’s a story for another time.


Trisha Fellows[edit | edit source]

[v] Lord El-Melloi II Case Files material - Encyclopedia: Trisha Fellows [Person], p.104

Trisha Fellows [Person]
Olga Marie’s attendant. She has Mystic Eyes of Foresight, and a strange hairdo.
Her elemental affinity is Water.
As described in the story, her Predictive Eyes of Foresight give predictions that become vaguer the further away the event is in the future, and they are limited to places where she would be in the future, or to places she is conscious herself at the present.
Her prediction of Rainbow ranked Mystic Eyes appearing at the Mystic Eye Auction was a mistake resulting from those limits.
In short, her prediction that “if she and Olga Marie participate in the auction, Mystic Eyes of the Rainbow level will be sold” was probably brought about by the effects of Heartless’ own Mystic Eyes, twisting the vision of her Eyes of Foresight. Trisha misread the information of Heartless’ Mystic Eyes, which had the ability to take control of even Rainbow ranked Mystic Eyes.
The reason she had boarded the Rail Zeppelin was, if Olga Marie could obtain a Mystery on par with a set of Rainbow ranked Mystic Eyes, she would still have a fighting chance even after having fallen out of favor with her father Marisbury. Also, she hoped to reveal the truth of the serial murder case from seven years ago, for which she still suspected Marisbury.
Her prediction that she would meet someone related to that serial murder case was correct. Using her Mystic Eyes, she made many preparations for her self defence, but…in the end, her Foresight was unable to protect her from a blade that came from the past.
“You fool, Marie. Get it together.”
Though as her tutor she was strict, her love for Olga Marie was genuine.


Volumen Hydrargyrum[edit | edit source]

[v] Lord El-Melloi II Case Files material - Encyclopedia: Volumen Hydrargyrum [Mystic Code], p.099

Moon Spirit’s Spinal Fluid(Volumen Hydrargyrum) [Mystic Code]
Supreme Mystic Code of the El-Melloi family.
The term Supreme Mystic Code refers to a Mystic Code sufficient to be called symbolic of a family of similar level to one of the Twelve Lords of the Clock Tower. In Volumen Hydrargyrum’s case, it was created by Lord Kayneth in his early twenties, a clear demonstration of the once-Lord’s exceptional talent.
Ever changing in form, it is a Mystic Code capable of performing both offensively and defensively without showing any openings. Its true nature however is that of a remote processor.
Upon inheriting it, Reines followed the advice of El-Melloi II and created a familiar out of it, endowing it with an elementary kind of artificial intelligence. It was the best advice for Reines who, rather than having the exceptional Magic Circuits of her predecessor, instead boasted a talent for precise control.
By forcing it to remember Reines’ precise control, the artificial intelligence is able to imitate it perfectly. The newly christened Trimmau being capable of taking so many various forms is primarily a result of this advice she received.
In addition, because of Trimmau’s nature, it has also learned a great many things from Flat’s magical hacking. Though that has included a large amount of unnecessary wit and famous sayings, Reines has thus far turned a blind eye to it for the sake of the other merits it brings.


Yvette L. Lehrman[edit | edit source]

[v] Lord El-Melloi II Case Files material - Encyclopedia: Yvette L. Lehrman [Person], p.097-098

Yvette L. Lehrman [Person]
Daughter of a family who specalizes in Mystic Eyes, she has a number of Mystic Eyes of her own, fashioned from precious stones, which she can swap out.
Though she is capable of activating various types of Mystic Eyes, that effectively means her brain must create an equal number of pathways through which to activate them. Practically speaking, in order to use her eight varieties of Mystic Eyes, the number of times her brain had been tampered with approaches seven times that. That being the case, the fact she has managed to maintain any sort of stable personality is a testament to her genius.
In developing plans for Rail Zeppelin, it was obvious that someone specialized in Mystic Eyes would be necessary for the setting, but even so she worked well for it. Being a spy for the Neutralist Meluastea faction, a lover of honey traps, with an eyepatch that looked like it was stolen from some anime, she is overflowing with character. Despite that, she seemed to have a strange sense of unity and robustness, to the point even the author had difficulty pinpointing where her true nature stopped and where the acting began.
In regards to her conversation with Melvin in the final volume, since they were both people drenched in lies, for her that must have been one of the few times she needed no deception.


Zepia Eltnam Atlasia[edit | edit source]

[v] Lord El-Melloi II Case Files material - Encyclopedia: Zepia Eltnam Atlasia [Person], p.103

Zepia Eltnam Atlasia [Person]
The head of the Atlas Institute.
Already having become a Dead Apostle, he has overcome the limit of his lifespan.
His number of and precision with Parallel Thought Processes are overwhelming even compared to other members of the Atlas Institute, as shown by his ability during the story to suppress the rampaging Logos React almost single handedly.
Completely separate from his pursuit of magecraft, he has an overwhelming love for theater.
Furthermore, he has a strong one-sided love for his daughter (or rather, a distant descendant of his from when he was human). Rumors have it that he adds to her trials out of a joy of seeing her under stress, but there are none who can confirm that.
Also, the name Atlasia is a title given to the head of the Atlas Institute. Before becoming the director, he had chosen the name Oberon.
In the world of magecraft, where a resemblance of names holds such a deep meaning, the relationship between him and the fairy king Oberon of a Midsummer Night’s Dream is a story only he knows.
