Hinako Akuta (芥ヒナコ, Akuta Hinako?) is one of the seven Crypters, Masters attempting to supplant the Greater History of Man with that of the Lostbelt in Fate/Grand Order: Cosmos in the Lostbelt. Despite her desired Servant class being Rider, she is the Master of Saber Prince of Lanling. She was formerly one of forty eight Chaldea Master Candidates and a member of A-Team.

She later appears as Assassin (アサシン, Asashin?), an Assassin-class Servant able to be summoned by Ritsuka Fujimaru.



Assassin's True Name and Hinako's real identity is Consort Yu, also known as Yu Miaoyi. She is an Incarnated Elemental, a vampiric creature labelled by Magi as closely related to True Ancestors due to having similar development processes, though they are different species with an unclear distinction. She has lived since the Age of Gods before she settled in China for a period of time around 200BC, becoming the concubine of Xiang Yu. She is thought to have died in recorded history, but she continued to live after that period. She became acquainted with Gao Changgong much later in 500AD, making a promise to see him once again if possible due to how he treated her.

Over two thousand years after Xiang Yu's death, she was recruited by Marisbury Animusphere into Chaldea Security Organization. He proposed to give her a new identity and somewhere to be at peace. He believed her status as a True Ancestor would allow her to perform the Grand Orders even if the human body proved too weak. Her background orchestrated by Marisbilly was that she was enrolled in the Clock Tower's Botany Faculty.[1] It is said she became a technician at Chaldea, but she was chosen one of the forty eight Chaldea Master Candidates after her talent was discovered. She later became a member of A-Team. She refused medical examinations due to her real identity, which often caused Romani Archaman to sulk. Hinako planned to summon a Rider-class Servant, something she strongly wished for.[1]

In 2015 AD, the incineration of the Human Order by Goetia commenced. When Hinako and the rest of the A-Team were set to leyshift to the Fuyuki Singularity, Lev Lainur Flauros set bombs to kill the Chaldea staff. The A-Team and other Masters were in their leyshift coffins at the time. Romani decided to enact cryostasis to keep the Masters from dying. Ritsuka Fujimaru completed the Grand Orders during the time they were frozen, and they were all set to be healed and revived from cryosleep throughout 2017. Unbeknownst to Chaldea, Kirschtaria Wodime was contacted by the Alien God for the plan to replace the Greater History of Man. At Wodime's behest, the Alien God took the other six members including Hinako, giving them each control of one of seven Lostbelts. Declaring themselves the Crypters, the Alien God launched the attack on the Greater History a year after Goetia's defeat at the end of 2017. Hinako was granted the Chinese Lostbelt, summoning Saber rather than her desired Rider.

After the events of the Chinese Lostbelt, Qin Shi Huang recommended she choose to enter the Throne of Heroes, as True Ancestors are the type of being who can choose how they manifest. She followed his recommendation, allowing her to be summoned by Ritsuka Fujimaru.


Leonardo noticed her having an odd vibe.[1] Hinako seemingly is a young woman with long hair tied in twin tails, she wears white attire and a pair of glasses


She is a woman who would be happy just reading books all day long in the shade.[1]


Fate/Grand OrderEdit

Olga Marie Animusphere orders A-Team to participate "Singularity Point F".[2] With Lev Lainur betrayal, Hinako was amongst the casualties to be put into cryofreeze in their coffins.[3]

After the arrival of Goldolf Musik, Koyanskaya and Kirei Kotomine. Thirty-nine Chaldea Masters were resuscitated and evacuated, only the A-Team were still frozen and remained in their Coffin.[1] On 27th December 2017, somebody had unfrozen and woke A-Team from their respective coffin and placed a fake signal.[4]

Goldolf orders Leonardo to open A-Team's coffin, only to find them missing.[4]

Anastasia: The Permafrost EmpireEdit

At a meeting between the Crypters, Hinako immediately wishes to know why Kirschtaria Wodime called since she reported to him that her Lostbelt is unsuitable for expansion, thus she abandoned the Lostbelt competition some time ago. When Kadoc tells her that conflict is inevitable, she states she doesn't care as long as she can stay until the end. At the meeting's conclusions, she cuts her transmission stating she can't leave the King of her Lostbelt alone due to his desire for exploration and expansion.[5]

Götterdämmerung: The Eternal Flame CenturyEdit

SIN: Land of Unified KnowledgeEdit

During a meeting with the other Crypters, Hinako calls out Koyanskaya's clearly fake mourning of Ophelia Phamrsolone, saying it'll make her more disgusted by her than she is irritated with Chaldea. She is somewhat relieved Ophelia died before Koyanskaya could make her Mystic Eye part of her collection. She becomes infuriated when Koyanskaya points out she ignored Ophelia's issues, but Scandinavia Peperoncino intervenes before this can go any further. She rejects Scandinavia's suggestion to hold a funeral for Ophelia, saying she has no flowers to offer her, and that she'll leave after reporting on her Lostbelt. She then tells both Scandinavia and Kirschtaria Wodime that she wishes to have nothing more to do with Koyanskaya. She asks for them not to send Koyanskaya to her Lostbelt, even if by mistake, before leaving.[6]


Despite her early pretense of being human, Hinako or rather Yu Miaoyi is a Zhenren, a 2000 year old incarnated Elemental with vampiric attributes/abilities similar to the True Ancestrors.

In order to blend into human society, Yu began to suppress her nature and powers over time, this came at the detriment of severely weakening her and it took a large source of energy, such as her servant, for her to be able to regain most of her strength. 

Although the key differences between the two species has yet to be elaborated upon, one known major difference between Yu/Zhenren and True Ancestors is her lack of bloodlust. While True Ancestors feel a constant psychological thrist to drink blood, Yu has never felt the need. Due to her connection with nature, she can simply draw in energy and mana from the environment and life around her gradually, which is sufficient to meet her needs. Anything short of isolating her in a deserted wasteland is the only real way of starving her. However as she is a blood-sucker, the life-blood of others is still a great source of energy for her if need be and she has admitted to killing more than a few victims during her life. She is even capable of draining servants, as Gao gave himself to her in order to empower her. 

Her combat style revolves around graceful sword techniques reminiscient of a dance as described in her myth. Yu often throw and telekinetically manipulate her two jian blades to spin, slash, and drill into her foes. Her blood is also a weapon, as she can unleash sprays of blood as deadly projectiles either by throwing them from her arms or by channeling them through her blades to rain down on her enemies. 

Her skills as a servant are Presence Concealment (B)Incarnated Spirit (A), Heaven's Feathered Woman (A), and Blood-Sucking (C). 

Her noble phantasm is Eternal Lament, a desperation move that would typically be called a suicide. However, due to her nature Yu can overload her current body with energy, turning it into a makeshift bomb, detonate and then reconstruct a new body for herself as long as she has enough energy. With enough energy, she can continue to repeat this process for as long as she desires without any reprecussions on herself. 

During the events of the 3rd Lostbelt, Yu made a desperate attempt to take the Chaldea team down with her by fusing with her Phantasy Tree Mayall, granting the tree access to her noble phantasm.
