Profile[edit | edit source]
Background[edit | edit source]
Kirschtaria Wodime was born into a thousand years old magi lineage and is the head of the Wodime family. Kirstcharia was noted to have had a terrible relationship with his father due to his immense natural abilities and powers as a Magus far overshadowing his own that resulted in him becoming jealous and paranoid of Kirschtaria. This eventually resulted in his father trying to have him assassinated sometime in his teens, that although unsuccessful, did end up permanently damaging his Magic Circuits. However despite this normally crippling injury inflicted on him that would have destroyed most magus's ability to perform Magecraft, Kirstcharia still retained his immense ability and latent talent in the art and was still deemed to be one of the most talented Magus's of his generation.
He enrolled in the Clock Tower's Astronomy Faculty and was said to be the jewel of the Clock Tower. Kirschtaria was noted to be Marisbury Animusphere's top disciple and was said to be a better successor as a Lord than Olga Marie Animusphere. He followed Marisbury into joining Chaldea Security Organization and became one of the forty eight Chaldea Master Candidates, Kirschtaria was chosen to be A-Team leader. Kirschtaria plans to summon a Lancer-class Servant.
Appearance[edit | edit source]
Kirschataria is a young man with long blonde hair and blue eyes.
He mostly wears white regal clothes, with a long coat and feather ornament. He also brings a strange looking cane/staff.
Personality[edit | edit source]
At first he appears to have some signs of elitism, but there is a valid logic behind the imagined future he leads people towards. He may look like a cold and composed aristocratic scion, but actually he treats people kindly and never imposes his authority on others.
He’s confident without being arrogant and cool-headed without being cold-blooded. Although he can be called greatest traitor ever in the eyes of the humanity up to the year 2017, ultimately his goals and ideals are beneficial to humanity and undeniably a great turning point towards the future.
During the events of Olympus it is revealed that he is actually a very kind and warm-hearted man as a result of his early life experiences and by having been put into multiple mental simulations with his fellow A-Team members by the Alien God, treasuring memories and bonds that only he remembers, revealing via side-conversations and internal dialogues to be a rather goofy person. He also has a noble goal of elevating humanity at the cost of his own life to bring them to a happier future. Even when knowing that Beryl has a high chance of betraying him, Kirschtaria still chooses to put his trust into his teammate hoping that it would not happen. Eventually, despite his dreams and hopes shattering with Chaldea's victory in Olympus, he chooses to entrust humanity's future to Ritsuka with the warning that both English and South American Lostbelts musn't become humanity's new history. In a final act of sacrifice he dies using his Sirius Light to push Beast VII and the Fantasy Tree out of the Lostbelt to buy Chaldea time to escape.
Role[edit | edit source]
Fate/Grand Order[edit | edit source]
Olga Marie Animusphere ordered A-Team to participate in "Singularity Point F". He was assigned Coffin A. Due to Lev Lainur's betrayal, Kirschtaria was amongst the casualties to be put into cryofreeze in their coffins.
At some point prior the second prologue, he was resurrected by the Alien God as their sole Crypter, who informed him about the current situation and the future of the Human Order. Claiming it won't be suffcient with him alone to remake history, Kirschtaria recommends to extend the proposal about the resurrection to the remaining A-Team members. Despite the Alien God's warnings about unnecessary competition and the price it would take to resurrect them due to them being unable to pay it by themselves, Kirschtaria remarks the possibilities they can bring shouldn't be cut off and decides to pay the price for his fellow Crypters' revival by himself.
Second Prologue[edit | edit source]
After the arrival of Goldolf Musik, Koyanskaya and Kirei Kotomine. Thirty-nine Chaldea Masters were resuscitated and evacuated, only the A-Team were supposed to be still frozen and remained in their Coffin.
Goldolf orders Leonardo to open Kirschtaria's coffin first, only to find him missing. However to their surprise, all A-team are missing. Somebody had unfrozen and woke A-Team from their respective coffin and placed a fake signal. 
Kirschtaria makes a broadcast amongst the remaining Chaldea members. Calling himself the representative of the Crypters and stating the wrongness of the Panhuman History, he declares Earth should be brought back to Age of Gods.
Anastasia: The Permafrost Empire[edit | edit source]
Kirschtaria holds a meeting with the other Crypters to inform them on urgent matters. One of his Servants predicted the resurgence of Chaldea after diving through the Imaginary Number Space for three months, to everyone's shock. After Daybit's assumption about Chaldea where emerged and Beryl's advice, he reminds Kadoc about his non-interference pact, and urges him to activate the Fantasy Tree for the sake of his Lostbelt. Later, after understanding Ophelia's concern about Kadoc's behavior, he summons Caenis, and sends him to supervise Kadoc and, if necessary, punish him.
Alone in the room, Kirschtaria claims that unlike some wise man who neglected humanity and the beast who called himself the King of Magecraft who gave up in his pity, he isn't going to lose sight of his goal, stating he'd complete a theory made by his former mentor.
Götterdämmerung: The Eternal Flame Century[edit | edit source]
Communicating with Ophelia via video, Kirschtaria informs her that the Russian Lostbelt has disappeared as she feared. Not wanting to lose a Lostbelt for the Alien God to possibly descend upon, he motivates Ophelia to manage her Lostbelt, which she believes to be correct. The fall of the Russian Lostbelt is known only him and Ophelia. The former through Caenis' report, and the latter through Koyanskaya. He tries to speak with Hinako Akuta, only to have her cut communication after reporting on her Lostbelt. Surprised by the usually stoic Hinako being flustered, he believes the King of her Lostbelt to be exceptional, wishing to speak with him. He considers informing the others of Kadoc losing his Lostbelt unnecessary when Ophelia doubts not doing so. He reports the situtation of the Lostbelts that Scandinavia Peperoncino and Beryl Gut are in charge of. Scandinavia is being aided by a certain Alter Ego, while Beryl's Lostbelt is threatening to vanish despite the Fantasy Tree being intact. In response to Ophelia's distrust of Beryl, Kirschtaria cites him as the kind of person who performs better the more he dislikes a job, so Beryl is busy trying to maintain his Lostbelt. Changing the subject, he tells Ophelia to stop Chaldea with all possible methods, including her Mystic Eye, since the Norse Lostbelt is important to his plans. He warns her that Caenis will visit Norse Lostbelt, leaving it to her how to deal with him. Hearing Ophelia's response, he says he has expectations for her and expects good news before cutting transmission.
Later, he has Caenis send a video message to Skadi and Chaldea, whom he predicted would reach Skadi's castle by then. He introduces himself to Skadi as the supervisor of the Crypters, and welcomes Chaldea to the new, bleached Earth. Informing them of the Crypters' goal again, he claims that the Greater History of Man to be neither the correct answer nor the wrong one. He continues that the divide between the gods and humanity was due to humanity not understanding that the gods are system to use not obey. Humanity's inability to use the gods caused the loss of potential prosperity and a history that would end in stagnation. Kirschtaria states the Alien God decided to descend upon the Earth because of that, giving the Crypters the task to create a terrain whose foundations exceed that of Greater History of Man. Revealing the roots of the Fantasy Tree Atlas cover 80% of the planet, he states that restoration of the Greater History of Man is impossible as long as the Tree exists. He then instigates Skadi to go against her original fate and protect the Tree until the end, wanting to pit her Norse Lostbelt against his Greek Lostbelt. Stating he'll show no mercy to those who oppose him, Kirschtaria ends the message trusting Skadi's decision.
SIN: Land of Unified Knowledge[edit | edit source]
Kirschtaria reveals he had Ophelia leave Surtr be despite the danger he posed to the Norse Lostbelt, believing he could've been used as insurance in case Scáthach-Skadi sided with Chaldea. It was also implied he was affected by Ophelia's death, but as Scandinavia Peperoncino points, he can't externalize any emotion now, so Peperonchino will prepare a funeral wreath for her in his place. After the meeting ends and he is again alone, Kirschtaria begins to reminisce about Ophelia and decides to answer to her high opinion of him by not faltering in his resolve.
Atlantis: Ocean in the Age of Titans[edit | edit source]
Meeting with the other Crypters, Kirschtaria explains to Kadoc the actual state of English Lostbelt and the reason for it. Its Fantasy Tree, Seyfert, was taken down for being an history considered to be a threat to the Alien God's plan. He explains the Fantasy Trees branches in the stratosphere form a sort of network, so he could confirm the loss of the interaction with Seyfert days ago. He also apologizes to his fellow crypters for hiding information. He admits Atlas is the only Fantasy Tree standing when Peperonicino points out since he cannot detect the whereabouts of the Western Lostbelt's Fantasy Tree. He reveals only his Tree needs to remain for the Alien God to descend. When the English Lostbelt is no more, his tree's branches will cover the entire planet and absorb not only its mana, but the cosmic radiation trapped in Earth's magnetic field as well. All the energy will converge into a single point, from which the Alien God will be born. It will then destroy the old mankind and bring a new order, with Kirschtaria being the last human as it was promised. Kadoc reminds him about Chaldea striking in the moment it seems opportune, to which Kirschtaria answers he already sent forces to Atlantis to deal with them, claiming their overconfidence and recklessness will be their fall.
After the meeting, he notices the Priestess, and asks her thoughts on the whole situation. He wonders why even after being aware of his Lostbelt's affairs, she decides to keep watching instead. Having the Priestess' silence as an answer, he expresses his doubt about Alien God's existence because not even it's emissaries have seen it or, even know what is it's true purpose. For him, it's an imaginary god, one belonging to the fantasy, so he cannot hand over the fate the humanity to such dubious existence. He tells her that she can keep spectating on how he's going to deal with Zeus and Chaldea, and make his Lostbelt a reality.
Kirschtaria contacts the Atlantis Defense Forces to verify if Chaldea was totally annihilated, to which the a present Caenis answers that with such assault and having one of Artemis' arrow fired at them as a final attack, even she would change sides out of respect if they managed to survive such strike. Wodime remarks she is pretty excited for that victory, but she shouldn't be celebrating yet, because he doesn't think is finally over. When Odysseus gives his report, expressing even he isn't sure about their destruction so he is searching for the survivors in the most likely location they could be, Kirschtaria teases Caenis about her statement of changing sides, making an annoyed Caenis retracting herself of what she said before. After a brief quarrel between Odysseus and Caenis, Wodime intervenes to say there's no need for him to blame Odysseus, since he carried the operation perfectly. Then, the Dioscuri appears to remember Odysseus the importance of his role and to bring Caenis to Olympus for be judged by the gods for her failure in defeating Chaldea. The crypter intervenes once more saying he will talk to Caenis in Zeus' place so she won't need to go Olympus, to which the Dioscuri acquiesce. After asking an enraged Caenis what's her wish, he tells her he'll explain the matters to Zeus himself, so she just need to focus in redeeming herself this time. He suggest her to follow Odysseus' orders and not to waste energy before fighting Chaldea. Finally, after asking Odysseus about the Theos Klironomia's search, he remembers to inform him as soon he encounters Chaldea before ending the transmission.
Abilities[edit | edit source]
His family Magic Crest is said to be possess a thousand years old history. When he was a teenager, his father tried to assassinate him, which resulted in his Magic Circuits being permanently damaged. Despite this crippling, his overall strength as a mage is at the top among Chaldea.
He established a line of Magecraft that allows him to defeat Servants while still human. His mage lineage has been in the Department of Astromancy since before the Earth became blank, and for that reason he was never treated as a threat, as his theory was regarded as genius on paper but impossible to put to practice.
His magecraft belongs to the original form of Astromancy that borrows from the administration of the planet, the skies, and space. His spell, Anima Animusphere, is the "ideal magecraft" from a time far more ancient than the Age of Gods, when the planet, the skies and space were all filled with magical energy. It is the ultimate magecraft of astrology passed down by the progenitors of astronomy, the ancient Chaldeans. The spell binds the magical energy overflowing on earth, in the sky, and in space into one, creating a miracle of the stars like that of the planets lining up as one. As humanity entered a consumption civilization and progressed, magecraft deteriorated and became smaller in scale. The same applies for astrology – where once it "received power from space", now it only "looks at space". In Ancient Greece, the world, the sky and the cosmos are all different layers, and so the quality of their magical energy are different. Kirschtaria’s magecraft draws power from the cosmos, the laws governing space, allowing him to force the stars to align, and utilizing them as a magic circuit. This allows him to call down meteors. He couldn't perform this magecraft within the Proper History since a world flushed with magical energy is required. He can do so in the Atlantic Lostbelt, as the Greek view of space is compatible with the Animusphere magecraft theory. In a Grecian Age of the Gods, his astromancy would be a Mystery which surpasses the gods themselves. This was later confirmed to be true when Demeter acknowledged that Kirschtaria using this magecraft possessed the potential to destroy her true body and Zeus acknowledged him as a worthy opponent and showed him proper respect despite his little opinion of humans.
Upon being revived by the Alien God and given his own Lostbelt and summoning his own servants, Kirschtaria is shown to possess immense talent and skill as a Master, seeing as he was able to contract with Three Divine Spirit's as his Servants.
Additionally, due to being selected and placed into A Team in order to complete the Grand Order, Kirschtaria was also given special Command Spells called the Sirius Light, a kind of power able to "overturn the world" according to Marisbury. After being given his own Lostbelt to govern, the command spells gave Kirschtaria a certain degree of Power/Authority over the Lostbelt itself. As seen when he managed to use the command spell to further empower and strengthen his Magecraft to be powerful enough to repel the physical manifestation of the Alien God after it manifested within the Fantasy Tree of the Atlantic Lostbelt.

Comment from the Illustrator[edit | edit source]
"I remember it took a lot of trial and error to get his style as leader right, with the hardest part being making him stop looking a loser… I was trying to represent a prestigious mage that’s not conceited and I think I did it. Since he’s harder to imagine in casual outfits compared to the other Crypters, I hope I do get this chance to draw in a more lighthearted situation. I created his staff supposing it’s an ancient Mystic Code rebuilt with every replaceable part replaced for better modern materials. Did you know that spherical jewel is apparent made to peek at the universe?" (Koyama Hirokazu)
