Profile[edit | edit source]
Identity[edit | edit source]
Jaguar Man is a Pseudo-Servant summoned into the body of Taiga Fujimura. One of the olden Divine Spirits transmitted in Central and South America. The Jaguar, namely, a symbol of “war” and “death”, is an existence revered for a long time in the Central and South American civilizations of all eras, and it is said that, in the bygone days, it would often show its form to the world. In the Olmec Civilization of the Preclassic Period, the Jaguar deity was a being possessing the mixed-blood of a jaguar and a human being and was deified in the shape of a “Jaguar-Human (Jaguar Man/Werejaguar)” figure and the likes.
In Central and South American mythologies, the Jaguar is frequently spoken of as a spiritual existence called a Nagual, a shadow and a supernatural Guardian Spirit. It is said that Tezcatlipoca, one of the chief gods worshipped in Aztec Civilization, is also endowed with a Nagual, and this Nagual is a fearsome Jaguar Nagual.
Heroic Spirit possession. The Jaguar Nagual achieved its materialization as a bunrei, done by possessing a particular human as its vessel. From time immemorial, it is said that humans who obtained the Nagual of a Jaguar were endowed with supernatural powers. The Nagual tales are narrated even in the modern times. Furthermore, concerning the criteria for selecting a human to possess as its vessel, among the humans that has a tie to the Holy Grail, the person who carries the fate of the wildness and the wildest force is elected.
Appearance[edit | edit source]
Personality[edit | edit source]
Do you like a Jaguar elder sister? Whether you like her or not, Jaguar is Jaguar. There is no escape.
A friendly character, one who is bright and without discrimination. It likely seems to be a strong reflection of the possessed human’s personality. Once Jaguar's mind becomes completely set on something, the target will be certainly teased with for weeks. That means there is no escape.
The Jaguar Warrior is proud. One should not expect to earn her trust in a brief period of time, even if one is called her Master. However, if she notices one’s daily endeavours, what one will be able to receive is a Jaguar Stamp, stamped with her paw. If one collects a lot of stamps, someday, it will probably appear to result in one being able to receive an acknowledgement of being her close friend. One cannot help doing their best in order to aim for being her Jaguar-mate (Tezcatlipoca-mate).
Relationships[edit | edit source]
(Jaguar is tilting her head)
(Jaguar’s stare is fixed at them)
(Jaguar is laughing and beckoning at her with a grin)
(Jaguar is clinging to her!)
(Jaguar does a double take and says “Really?”)
Role[edit | edit source]
Fate/Grand Order[edit | edit source]
It is unknown why the Jaguar attempted to materialize in this world. Maybe it came along while being attracted to Quetzalcoatl, or maybe it came along while in a playful mood. Perhaps it stole a march on Tezcatlipoca when he was about to appear, and so on; the curiosity about this matter is endless.
Seventh Singularity: Babylonia[edit | edit source]
Jaguar Man is a Stray Servant. She confronts Ritsuka's party when they come to the southern jungle to investigate Ur. She briefly fights them before retreating. She confronts them again in Ur after Mash reprimands its people for their daily "sacrifices" to Quetzalcoatl in Eridu. She confesses she was scolded for killing "sacrifices", as it's too old-fashioned. She also reveals any warrior who fails the trial of strength are forced into hard labor at Eridu. As she cannot let them free the people of Ur, Jaguar Man fights the group to force them to leave. The group are forced to retreat when she proves too fast and powerful. Jaguar Man chases after them, catching up several times, but Medusa drove her each time.
She comes with Quetzcoatl when the latter attacks Uruk's southern market. After Quetzalcoatl leaves, Jaguar Man collects the soldiers seemingly killed by Quetzalcoatl. She refuses to leave without them, as she knows Quetzalcoatl severely punish her. She then leaves after setting her werejaguars on the group.
She fights the group again when they return to the southern jungle. Thanks to Ishtar's assistance though, they're able to defeat her this time. Ritsuka then uses flattery to convince her to join them. Jaguar Man prepares to guide the group to Eridu when her werejaguars accusing her of betraying them. After defeating them, she guides the group to Ur. There they find the Uruk soldiers alive. Jaguar Man explains Quetzcoatl revived the soldiers right after killing them. She also reveals the soldiers are forbidden to leave because they're members of Quetzalcoatl's army. She advises against talking with Quetzalcoatl to convince her, calling her monster that enjoys fighting. She says the only way to defeat her is a head-on battle of the soul.
The next day, she guides the group through the jungle to Eridu. They learn Quetzalcoatl has recently returned from Uruk. Jaguar Man says she and the others will hold her off while Ritsuka destroys Piedra Del Sol, the symbol of her power. She then gives them a spare of her weapon she made last night for this very purpose. The group then enter Eridu, and they breakthrough waves of winged serpents to reach the temple. The group then excute their plan, but Quetzalcoatl easily overwhelms them, as Ritsuka nears the temple's altar. Jaguar Man goes to the altar with Ishtar, noting how Ritsuka realized Quetzalcoatl wants to see a display of human resolve. She suggests they do a planca when Ritsuka says height and courage will show humanity's resolve. As height is better for plancha, she has Ishtar take Ritsuka to the skies. The plan works as Quetzalcoatl leaves the Three Goddess Alliance after being impressed by Ritsuka's resolve. Jaguar Man reveals the sacrifices from Ur are actually recruits for Quetzalcoatl's army. Quetzcoatl then orders her to supervise the winged serpents carrying Marduk's axe to Uruk.
Jaguar Man delivers the axe to Uruk, and Gilgamesh sends it to the Northern Wall. She later joins Quetzalcoatl in defending the Northern Wall, as the other head for Gorgon's Blood Fort. She notes Quetzalcoatl lost half of her divinity when the latter broke the Alliance's non-aggression by throwing the Axe to destroy the Blood Fort.
As Tiamat's Lahmu are massacring the Mesopotamian population, the group return to Uruk to find it under attack, while Ishtar struggles against them. They land to fight the creatures in order to secure a path to the ziggurat for the citizens to take shelter in. However, they struggle against even one, made worse by the fact they multiply. The creatures suddenly leave though, so the group go to the ziggurat. There Gilgamesh reveals Tiamat is one of the seven Evils of Humanity, and she's yet to full awaken. He then sends the group to investigate Ur and Eridu, as the Lahmu are bringing the people they kidnap there.
They arrive in Ur to find the Lahmu have already killed everyone. Jaguar Man notices they aren't missing any organs despite being ripped apart. They weren't killed out of hunger, anger, nor for territory, but for the pleasure of it. The group head to Eridu where they find the kidnapped victims gathered in the plaza. They also meet a strange Laḫmu that doesn't attack them. Ignoring it, the group enter the plaza where they see the Laḫmu forcing humans kill each other. They kill the Laḫmu to allow the survivors to escape. Kingu arrives and tries to stop the Laḫmu. A Laḫmu then rips the Grail from Kingu's body. The group try to take it when the Laḫmu swallows it and grows a pair of wings, becoming Bel Lahmu. The group fight it to prevent it from flying to Tiamat to fully awaken her. Ritsuka, Mash, and Quetzalcoatl mount Quetzalcoatlus to chase after it when it flies off. Quetzalcoatl orders Jaguar Warrior to evacuate and protect the humans.
Jaguar Man returns to Uruk after leaving Ishtar to evacuate Eridu's people. She and Gilgamesh contact the group while they're at the Persian Gulf observatory. She says they repelled another attack, and that Gilgamesh mounted the walls with 360 Dingir cannons.
Later, as Tiamat starts her approach towards Uruk, Jaguar Man deduces she'll arrive in a day. The group learn Tiamat has a paradoxical protection, where she cannot die as long as life exists on Earth. Gilamesh contacts Ereshkigal and asks her to send Tiamat to Kur, where she'll be considered the last living being. He orders her to open a gate beneath Uruk. He suggests they hold Tiamat with Gugalanna while Ereshkigal completes her task. However Ishtar reveals she lost Gugalanna, who she was looking for when she first met Ritsuka and Mash. Realizing they lack a way to combat Tiamat, everyone takes a break.
That evening, Jaguar Man and Quetzalcoatl visit Ritsuka at the Chaldean Embassy. Jaguar Man goes to kitchen, as Quetzalcoatl and Ritsuka start talking. She returns, wondering if they're discussing on how to flee tomorrow. Quetzalcoatl lies that Tiamat might be stopped if they sacrifice a goddess. Jaguar Man readily eats the meat Quetzalcoatl gives her, not caring that she's the sacrifice. She then describes her relationship with Quetzalcoatl as them being rival with equal worth. She's fine if either of them die, as long as one of them lives to keep things balanced. Like in the myths, she still wants to defeat Quetzalcoatl, but it's different this time since Quetzalcoatl is working to save humans. She reveals Quetzalcoatl joined the Alliance to stop the other goddesses after catching her lie that she joined to kill humans. The plan was to get the Greater Grail of Uruk first before the others could use it to destroy humanity.
The next day, the group discover Tiamat's legs are too thin to support her weight. Therefore, she can only walk with the Chaos Tide. Gilgamesh orders them to destroy her legs and the Chaos Tide. Quetzalcoatl says she can destroy the Chaos Tide with Piedra Del Sol, though it uses a lot of stamina and magical energy. The group return to the Persian Gulf to execute her plan. There Quetzalcoatl orders Jaguar the surviving javelin unit from Girsu before the Lahmu kill them. When Quetzalcoatl's attempt to use Xiuhcoatl on Tiamat fails, Jaguar Man caught her, and brought her to the Cedar Forest. After burying her there, she returned to Uruk.
Seeing the giant hole to Kur there, she jumped down to help Ritsuka. She tells Ereshkigal to continue her previous attack on Tiamat, even if it isn't effective now. She says they cannot allow Tiamat to return to the surface because if she does, the Chaos Tide will engulf the world in less than a day. Fortunately, Tiamat's paradoxical restoration is still ineffective in Kur, as both the Chaos Tide and the Laḫmu are part of her. Merlin then arrives, and turns the Chados Tide into flowers, draining Tiamat's power. Tiamat grows wings and tries to fly back to the surface when Ziusdra, who reveals himself to be the Grand Assassin King Hassan, severs her wings while simultaneously forcing the concept of death onto her by reducing her Spirit Origin into that of a normal servant. Recognizing her own mortality, Tiamat unleashes more Laḫmu to protect her while she climbs back to the surface. With Ereshkigal's blessing, the group fly towards Tiamat, breaking through the Bel Laḫmu with Hassan's help. They reach Tiamat's head, as it's where her Spiritual Core is, and try to kill her. She proves astoundingly durable, and she takes down Merlin to remove his negation on the Chaos Tide. Archer Gilgamesh then arrives to help fight Tiamat. With her defeat, Tiamat plummets to the bottom of Kur. The group then escape to the surface before she explodes.
Back on the surface, Jaguar Man explains how she managed to rescue Quetzalcoatl when everyone else thought she was dead. She and Quetzalcoatl then disappear now that Tiamat is gone, as their summoning was only possible due to Tiamat's presence.
Final Singularity: Solomon[edit | edit source]
Abilities[edit | edit source]
Being a Divine Spirit, Jaguar Man is a powerful Servant and not even Mash's and Ana's combined efforts are able to work on her. Merlin claims they wouldn't stand a chance against her without another servant with the same level of divinity. However, because she belongs to the lower grade among the Divine Spirit Servants, Jaguar Man's selling point is that she does not cost a lot to cover in terms of Magical Energy. In terms of physical strength, she would only be able to block Quetzalcoatl's charge one time.
Jaguar Man boasts incredible speed, allowing her to lep up above the jungle in an instant and retreat. Her stealth abilities are also to be expected in the jungle. Even though the possessed human was originally endowed with an astounding Luck rank it was ranked down for some reason at the time of possession.
Jaguar Man uses a frightening club as her main weapon. Used for adjacent attacks.
Class Skills[edit | edit source]
- Magic Resistance (A Rank): Nullifies spells of Rank A or below. In fact, magecraft invoked by modern magi would not be able to wound Jaguar Man.
- Mad Enhancement (E Rank): The Jaguar is whimsy. Even though she thinks she can comprehend conversations, in reality, she often does not even understand them.
- Divinity (A Rank): Jaguar Man possesses this Skill at a high rank because although she is purely a bunrei, the Skill is extremely compatible with humans that were possessed by the Jaguar. After witnessing Quetzalcoatl's divinity, Ana claims that Jaguar Man is nothing more than a paper tiger in comparison.
Personal Skills[edit | edit source]
- Jaguar Punch (A Rank): Its formal Skill name is Divine Protection of the Jaguar (ジャガーの加護, Jagā no Kago?). Jaguar Punch is destructive power. A divine protection bestowed by the Jaguar Divine Spirit. She does not feel fear nor pain. It is also a composite Skill that comprises the effects of the Valor Skill and the Instinct Skill.
- Jaguar Kick (B Rank): Its formal Skill name is Monstrous Strength. Jaguar Kick is another destructive power. At any rate, she alone must survive no matter what it takes. A Skill that senses a will, and like the sort of a strong will. Temporarily amplifies one’s Strength. Primarily an offensive special characteristic possessed only by monsters and Magical Beasts. Increases one’s Strength parameter by one rank upon usage. The duration for this increase depends on the rank of “Monstrous Strength”.
- Jaguar Eye (A+ Rank): Its formal Skill name is Jaw of the Dark Jungle (暗き密林の顎, Kuraki Mitsurin no Ago?). Jaguar Eye is a beam power. In the situations where she stays on a “forest” field, plus effects are added to all sorts of checks.
- Similarly, when she is in her "natural territory" of the jungle that springs up in the Babylonia Singularity, she has access to Call of the Jungle (密林の呼び声, Mitsurin no Yobigoe?), granting her a boost in magical energy that allows her to unleash her Noble Phantasm at greater frequency.

Comment from Illustrator[edit | edit source]
"It is said that there was no choice but to have that Jaguar Man get on a motorcycle! What do I do! And it is this outcome that troubled my mind. Is it ok for me to make a completely different pose for her last Ascension stage!? I am thankful! And one thing! I’m happy that it can be accepted and used. There was certainly a great pressure on me to draw her."

Level 1 Bond

Gender belongs to the possessed human.
Level 2 Bond
In the mythologies of Central and South America, it is often described as an spiritual existence called nagual, a shadow and a supernatural guardian spirit.
It has been said that Tezcatlipoca, one of the chief gods worshiped in the Aztec civilization, is also endowed with a nagual - a fearsome jaguar nagual.
In this work, Jaguarman is syncretizing the aspects as a nagual of Tezcatlipoca, which draws from its own genealogy, while being endowed with the disposition as a divine spirit of old.
Level 3 Bond
The jaguar nagual has accomplished a manifestation as a bunrei by turning a specific human into its vessel.
From time immemorial, it has been said that humans who acquired the jaguar nagual were endowed with supernatural powers.
The nagual tales are told even in modern times.
In addition, regarding the criteria for selecting the vessel, the individual who carried the most power of the wildness - and the fate of the wildness - among all humans connected to the Holy Grail was elected.

In case she is on a “forest” field, plus effects are added to all sorts of checks and saving throws.
Level 5 Bond
It is unknown why it attempted to manifest in this world.
Maybe it came while being attracted by Quetzalcoatl, maybe it came as if coming out to play, maybe it came while stealing a march on Tezcatlipoca when it tried to come out, etc - truly intriguing.
Because it belongs to the lower class among the divine spirit-type of Servants, its selling point is the fact it cost very little.
No matter how one looks at it, the personality of the possessed body is the main one, but one should not point that out.
(1):considering the overall joke-like vibes we get from such profile, this was probably intentional.
