Lancer (ランサー, Ransā?) is the Lancer-class Servant of Caren Kotomine in the Imperial Capital Holy Grail Strange Story of Koha-Ace.



Lancer's True Name is Li Shuwen (李書文, Ri Shobun?), a legendary martial artist from China who, despite being born in modern times, carved many legends.[2][3] A Chinese martial artist from Yanshan County, Hebei - Cangzhou (1864~1934).[3][4] Having been born in the deathbed of the Qing Dynasty, Li Shuwen distinguished himself soon after beginning to take lessons in Bājíquán, ascending to the point of being extolled as the strongest in the history of Chinese martial arts.[2] A prominent martial artist in the history of Chinese martial arts, renowned as "a second strike is needless, so long there is one it will suffice". Otherwise he is known as Demon Fist Master (魔拳士?) of the Bājíquán.[5] Rather than learning 1,000 techniques, he personified a literal one-hit kill by thoroughly polishing up a single technique.[2]

The progenitor of the Li clan's branch of Bājí, Li Shuwen excelled in the use of spear to the point of being nicknamed "Divine Spear Li" (神槍李, Kamisō Ri?).[5][2] The "Six Harmony Great Spear" that he used was a basic weapon of the Bājí-branch and, if one is to accept this extreme logic, it can be said that the unarmed techniques of the Bājí-branch (the Bājíquán) are nothing but preliminary steps to learn the techniques of this great spear.[5]

It is said he have brought too much hatred due to killing too many opponents and finally had his life ended by being served poison from the victims relatives.[5]



The elder Li Shuwen is mentioned as being intimate with children, as the "grandpa who taught them boxing".[6]




Lancer attacking Sakura Saber and Assassin


Lancer appears alongside his master, Caren. They are the first Master/Servant pair to encounter Berserker as he rampaged through Demon Archer's compound. While initially landing a seemingly mortal blow against Berserker, his armour allowed him to recover from the damage, and activating his Noble Phantasm, Boneless Man, he caught Lancer off guard before being attacked from behind by Sakura Saber.


Lancer's Noble Phantasms are God Spear, No Second Strike and Fierce Tiger Forcibly Climbs a Mountain.

Lancer's skills are Magic Resistance (Rank D), Chinese Martial Arts (Liu He Da Qiang) (Rank A+++), Sphere Boundary (Rank B) and Juezhao (Rank B). His parameters are slightly different from his younger version.
