Jacques de Molay
The Knights Templars were a military order tasked with protecting those going on a pilgrimage to the holy land of Jerusalem. Molay served as the 23rd and last grandmaster of this order. With the privileges granted to them, the Templars spread their influence throughout Europe.
Putting their wealth that could rival that of a nation to good use, they also played the role of the first international bank in history.
However, their secretiveness turned out to be the ruin of the order; with rumors mixed with envy such as them performing black magics constantly circulating around, their organization was finally abolished on suspicion of heresy.
Molay, who was burned at the stake on Île de la Cité in Paris, shouted words of curses before he expired and within a year of his execution, the main conspirators behind the Templars' destruction, the King of France and the Pope, met with sudden deaths.
The Foreigner Jacques de Molay is an innocent Heroic Spirit, whose Spirit Origin has been warped and transformed by the scandals and stigma spread by the people in power and the masses who were envious of the Templars. Furthermore, having been possessed by the evil god proclaiming to be the Holy Mother of the Abyss" (深淵の聖母, Shin'en no seibo?) that hastens the corruption of mankind, that evil nature has been boosted.
By the way, it is said that the symbol of the ominous and sinister, "Friday the 13th", comes from the day of the incident when the Templars were simultaneously exposed.
She won't remove her glasses even in the bath.
An evil Servant in essence who pursues self-serving actions.
If she were to be summoned in circumstances where the mission of restoring the Human Order and the special quality of the Master were missing, she would surely bring about a great disaster.
She does not take the sacrifices and suffering of others into consideration, and while she won't lie, she will conceal the truth in a way that's convenient for her. In short, she likes doing bad things in secret so as to not get caught. Since she is faithful to her emotions and desires, she will nonchalantly but persistently seduce the person she took a liking to.
In critical moments, she will boldly express her hatred. Going through her ascensions, this disposition and demeanor of hers will remain pretty much unchanged.
- Innocent Monster (Rank A): It indicates to what depths the truth has been distorted by rumors, regardless of the will and appearance of the person in question during their lifetime.
It is said that they worshipped the goat-headed devil and indulged in obscene rituals.
It is said the treasures and activities of the Templars are still being inherited today.
The false accusations that caused the fall of the Templars and the vast amount of legends passed down for posterity corrupted Molay into a bewitching form suitable for indulging in pleasure, altering him into a completely separate existence from the monks that aspired to recover the Holy Land.
- Holy Shroud (Fake) (Rank B): The so-called "Shroud of Turin" is a relic that covered the remains of Jacques de Molay and not that of the Messiah himself...such an awfully dubious theory exists. It is true that the french Charney family that discovered the Holy Shroud was deeply involved with the Knights Templars, after all, they are said to be related to one of the top brass of the order, Geoffroi de Charney who was burned at the stake along with Molay, but who knows what's the truth.
- Investiture of Depravity (Rank A): A powerful seduction technique.
A secret ceremony of investiture is held where one is made to swear loyalty to the Abyssal Holy Mother before the spirits of successive generations of Templars and becomes its obedient knight.
An initiation into liberation and depravity.
The male Jacques de Molay first appeared as a cameo in the first volume of Fate/Requiem, and then was given a design in Fate/Grand Order Arcade with the Jerusalem Singularity. The female version debuted in Fate/Grand Order several months later.
