Goredolf Musik (ゴルドルフ・ムジーク, Gorudorufu Mujīku?) is the new owner and director of Chaldea Security Organization after the death of Olga Marie Animusphere. After the events of Epic of Remnant, he purchased the organization before it could be divided up by the Mage's Association.
Profile[edit | edit source]
Background[edit | edit source]
Appearance[edit | edit source]
He is 28 years old when he buys Chaldea.
Personality[edit | edit source]
Goredolf Musik initially presents himself as an unlikable leader, a flaw that he is aware of and later admits. While he is abrasive, that ultimately stems from his own insecurity and worrying about everything. Even if at first he seems a stereotypical elite magus, he actually cares about his subordinates. As Da Vinci explains, due to Toole's spartan education Goredolf seems to treat any danger his fields operative are into as a danger to himself, so as a leader he is able to put himself in the perspective of the people he commands.
One of his biggest dreams is to visit the Suzuka Circuit. Goredolf has good driving skills.
Goredolf hates being called "old man" due to how he is actually younger than he really appears.
Role[edit | edit source]
Fate/Grand Order[edit | edit source]
Arc 2 Prologue[edit | edit source]
Servant Summer Festival![edit | edit source]
This event reveals that some time during the Remnant Order, Goredolf was in Hawaii when it became the Luluhawa Singularity. He briefly meets the Chaldea group or is in the vicinity of some incidents during each time loop.
Lord El-Melloi II Case Files[edit | edit source]
Even as a child, Goredolf is a part of the Policies Department at the Clock Tower, his arrival greatly entertaining his senior Hishiri Adashino. He makes a cameo appearance in the anime adaptation Grace note with his design from Fate/Apocrypha Material to arrest Gurdoa Davenant, who almost exposed magecraft to London due to how he underestimated the influence of modern social networking.
Fate/Apocrypha[edit | edit source]
After the end of the Great Holy Grail War, the homunculus Toole becomes Goredolf's tutor. She performs this duty through "thoroughly beating up" Goredolf, and subsequently beating up Gordes' wife after she protests the treatment of her son, and then Gordes himself. In the anime adaptation of Fate/Apocrypha Goredolf can be seen in the final episode learning alchemy from his father.
Fate/strange Fake[edit | edit source]
Abilities[edit | edit source]
As a member of the Musik Family, Goredolf knows alchemy. His magecraft skill is average by Clock Tower standards, but decent enough at combat to be able to fight against the Oprichniki on his own until rescue comes. He uses a magic gun, magical amulets and his own brand of magecraft, the Goff Punch: Iron Fist (鉄の拳, Tetsu no Ken?), that consists in turning his own arms into iron with alchemy to protect himself and punch enemies. He also devised a personal Magic Formula to turn bad meat into good meat with the usage of alchemy.
He seems to be an expert driver too, known by the name Phoenix Musik (不死鳥のムジーク, Fushichō no Mujīku?), being his own sponsor, driver and team. Goredolf also is quite good at cooking, being confident enough to trust his own pasta cooking abilities to be able to make prisoners spill the beans tempted by it. This is later proven true when he interrogates Caenis by cooking a croissant.
Development[edit | edit source]
Creation and Conception[edit | edit source]
Goredolf made his first appearance in Fate/Apocrypha Material, as the unnamed son of Gordes Musik Yggdmillennia. The art depicts him as a boy instead of an adult, as he was during the time of Fate/Apocrypha.

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.

Tool [Person's name]
One of the homunculi created by Gordes. Though her Magic Circuits are meager, she excels in fighting ability and inspiration, so she was selected as a commander. Just as told in the novels, battle-type homunculi have extremely short lifespans, with a limit of two to three months of life.
For a homunculus, she has a neat and lively personality. If we were describing her using visual novel or light novel terminology, then she would be the “female teacher-type who has sex appeal, but is unfortunately coarse and ill-mannered”.
At Gordes’ request, she has taken charge of thoroughly beating up his son. Naturally, his wife protested when their son was beat up, so Tool beat her up and beat up Gordes too while she was at it, winning supremacy over their family. It is said that, for three months, this homunculus stood at the top of the Musik family.
