Jacques de Molay (ジャック・ド・モレー, Jakku Do Morē?), Class Name Saber (セイバー, Seibā?), is a Saber-class Servant summoned by Ritsuka Fujimaru in the Grand Orders of Fate/Grand Order. He first appears in Fate/Grand Order Arcade. He is also summoned by an unnamed Master "After" the Holy Grail War in Fate/Requiem.
Profile[edit | edit source]
Identity[edit | edit source]
The Knights Templar, a knight order that protects pilgrims to the sanctuary of Jerusalem.
Molay is the 23rd president and famous as the last Grand Master.
Philip IV of France, who wanted the enormous assets of the Knights, suspected Morey as a heretic and abolished the Knights.
Molay was burned at the stake in Paris, leaving behind the words of the curse.
History[edit | edit source]
13th century. Born at that time as a child of a small aristocrat in Molay, Burgundy, who belonged to the Holy Roman Empire.
Molay, who joined the Knights Templar at the age of 21 and became a knight, participates in the defense of the city of Acre, which was his last base, but the city falls without receiving the reinforcements of the Crusades.
Although the Knights' headquarters was moved to Cyprus, Molay did not give up on the recapture of the Sanctuary and burned his passion for the Crusades' re-expedition, advocating the reform of the Knights, which had been corrupt and proud, and became president.
The Knights Templar has earned enormous wealth through donations from the princes of each country, and has increased its assets by widely operating the financial industry, which is a pioneer of the banking industry, and has more than 10,000 large and small divisions throughout Europe. He owned a property comparable to the kingdom.
It can be said that Moray, who became the president of the Knights, was also in a position similar to the president of Hyundai Bank.
Molay tried to be a devout monk as the fall was spreading to the Knights who had lost sight of their purpose.
He regretted his unsuccessful military achievements and sought to recapture the sanctuary of Jerusalem.
The sinister day when the Knights Templar were arrested all at once after being dressed in heretical wet clothing such as black magic and Satanism by King Philip IV of France is said to be the origin of what is commonly referred to as "Friday the 13th."
Molay, who was burned at the stake after imprisonment and torture, shouted a curse on Philip IV and his puppet Pope Clement V.
In fact, they die debilitatingly without waiting for a year.
Molay, who became a servant, has mercy but no hatred for the French royal family who eventually followed the path of decline.
However, I want you to return the loaned money. That's it.
Appearance[edit | edit source]
Personality[edit | edit source]
A serious and shy person, one's first impression is that Jacques is bad at communicating and has an air of frailty. When it comes to negotiating, however, he changes completely, displaying a persistent, tenacious force of will. As his physical health declines, his arguments become sharper as he corners his opponent without backing down.
He stubbornly tries to following the Templars' vows of "poverty, chastity and obedience" and "death before surrender". As the Templars' funds are the property of God, his attitude in regards to handling money is unusually practical. He endeavours to keeps his emotions under control during his dealings so as to never be at a disadvantage.
That said, his stomach gets upset easily to the point of vomiting, during which time he can only think about cute things.
