Profile[edit | edit source]
Identity[edit | edit source]
The Servant's actual True Name is Jinako Carigiri (ジナコ＝カリギリ, Jinako Karigiri?), initially called Giant Statue God (大いなる石像神, Ōinaru Sekizō-shin?) during her first ascension. This name displayed on the profile in Chaldea's database is that of Jinako, the human host, but the data is "conceptually corrupted in a way no one can read the name."
Ganesha forcibly fused with Jinako, altering her Saint Graph on conceptual level to fuse with her with only reason being that they are compatible. And due to this, everyone will refer to her as Ganesha and no one will recognize her, even by her previous servant Karna.
Jinako and Ganesha[edit | edit source]
A divine spirit that resides within a human vessel’s body, resulting in the manifestation of a pseudo-servant. However, there are still many questions as to how she came to be this way.
Honestly, the background to this entire situation seems to involve a lot of bug related issues. The name of the human magician thought to be the vessel looks to be written on the Saint Graph, but for some reason the name has become unreadable by anyone. With that said, due to this and her saying her name is “Ganesha” everyone from Chaldea just refers to her as “Ganesha-san”. Though we still don’t know for sure if the divine spirit is really that of the actual Ganesha from Hindu mythology.
The one who has a bond-like connection with her is able to say her name for some reason, but that can only come from their unconscious and they are unable to say her name consciously. Furthermore, her name holds no meaning for others and cannot be recognized by them either.
We can only assume that a particular high-level AI was involved with her appearing as an Extra Class, but as we’re not certain, there is also the possibility that another world’s far side of the moon may have had something to do with it.
Ganesha[edit | edit source]
Ganesha, the Indian god she claims to be inside her, is said to be the son of Shiva and Parvati.
To be more exact, Parvati created him from the filth on her body.
Parvati made him to stand guard and not let anyone pass while she was bathing. And that’s when Shiva came in.
Since Ganesha didn’t know Shiva was Parvati’s husband, he stopped him. And since Shiva didn’t know about Ganesha either, he fell into rage for being treated like that and ripped Ganesha’s head off.
Parvati lamented her son’s death and Shiva promised he would bring their son back to life, but he couldn’t find the head.
For that reason, Shiva revived him with the head of the first elephant he found… And that’s the most well-known reason for the elephant head.
Ganesha is the god of fortune and prosperity, the god of learning (it’s said that the Mahabharata was made by him writing down the story the Rishi Vyasa was verbally narrating), and the god of obstacles later turned the god who removes obstacles.
Appearance[edit | edit source]
Personality[edit | edit source]
Ganesha’s sense of duty is deep inside her body but on the surface Jinako’s personality is pretty much the same as always.
A big chicken with neet tendencies.
A helplessly lazy, completely self-centered and self-defeating woman on her x0’s.
However, her fate lead her to go through some kind of impactful experience, so it could be possible that for her squeeze some of the neet pride that’s still left in her husk… maybe.
Role[edit | edit source]
Fate/Grand Order[edit | edit source]
Yuga Kshetra: The Black Final God[edit | edit source]
The Servant summoned by the Counter Force to confront the Indian Lostbelt.
Due to her manifestation having special circumstances in both the vessel’s selection and the land she was summoned in, it’s fair to assume that she possessed a variety of cheat codes like the aforementioned name bug.
“What the heck, why this black sheep treatment? I’m the victim here! I was just some stale bread average joe until a God with really weird taste came to me and said, ‘We’re compatible, do the thing’ and shoved the big responsibilities on my face!? At least buy me dinner first!”
As you can tell from the quote above, all indicates the consciousness of the vessel human is stronger.
She understands fully well that she is a Divine Spirit and that she was summoned for a very specific reason, but even so, due to the host’s strong personality, she incessantly rambled “Whaaaaaaa, I can’t save the world”, as anyone who knows her would’ve expected.
But that’s was only until Chaldea arrived and she met the protagonist.
After all, they had by their side a Lancer Servant she’s seen before…
Abilities[edit | edit source]
Ganesha's armaments are a staff, spoon, axe, overwhelming weight, and dangos.
Ganesha is capable of damaging enemies with intense light and stream of water. She can create small tornadoes and air streams.
As a Hindu God, Ganesha's intellect should be high, specializing in science and wisdom. She is quite skilled fighter as well, capable of keeping up with the likes of Karna and Rama. Ganesha also has good analytical skills, using her seemingly useless knowledge of otaku culture as a tool to analyze Arjuna's plan.

Though there have been many other tales, such as the one where the tusk was actually broken all together from the beginning. And another where they threw the tusk at the moon.
- Vinayaka: EX
Ganesha’s other name with the meaning of "The Supreme Head". It is also the name of the demon king who is the remover of obstacles. It is connected to the meaning of "there is a success when you overcome the obstacle" and because of that, she is believed as "the God who removes obstacles". It also refers to a group of demons who had the nature of being "The ones who are obstacles". Which further connects to the meaning of "If you overcome your difficulties, success will come to you" and from this we come to the belief of Ganesha being "The god who removes obstacles".
Noble Phantasm[edit | edit source]
MoonCancer's first Noble Phantasm is Ganesh Impact: O' Human Bullet, Take It Seriously From Tomorrow, a C Rank Anti-Unit Noble Phantasm. It is a Noble Phantasm used when Ganesha has a wall on her back. Its true nature is just one big damaging blunt attack with her divinity compressed over and over.
Ganesha's second Noble Phantasm is Ganesha Vighneshvara: I Command, I am the God of Obstacles, an A Rank Anti-Intrusion Noble Phantasm that can't be used unless Ganesha is in special conditions. Vighneshvara is another name of Ganesha and means "God of Obstacles". It can be activated upon forcefully purifying the aspects that make Ganesha "A god that removes obstacles". An absolute and impenetrable Bounded Field that cannot be entered and no action can be taken against, that will appear using her ability as a God who removes obstacles. If used offensively, with absolute force, it will wipe away and even push back any obstacle/attack in front of her eyes. Of course, it can be used as an absolute shield that protects from any obstacle/attacks when used defensively. In the Indian Lostbelt she used this in conjunction with Lakshmibai’s Noble Phantasm to create a "A hikikomori room that no one can definitely come inside". She was able to bring forth a “room” that enveloped her entire surroundings and one that not even a god of creation would be able to do anything against.
