A Mystic Code: Magic Formal Wear (魔術礼装(ミスティック・コード), Majutsu Reisō(Misuthikku Kōdo)?)[1], or simply Formal Wear (礼装, Reisō?), is a tool that magi use to support their execution of Magecraft.[2] Top tier Mystic Codes are said to have the equivalent power to a missile.[3] Others have pseudo-personalities, essentially acting like loyal robots that carried out their users’ orders, but many are capable of more adaptive autonomous thought than modern AI.[4]

Types[]

There are many different types of functions and shapes to Mystic Codes, but these are generally broken up into two types. The first are those that supplement the magic energy of a magus when he uses magic. The second are those where the Mystic Code itself has a predetermined set effect and a function that activates that effect when used.[5][2]

Auxiliary Mystic Code (補助礼装, Hojo Reisō?)
An Auxiliary-type one can be used for magical energy amplification or storage, prepared to strengthen a spell. They are orthodox Mystic Codes for support. Some jewels[5] and Azoth Swords[6] are of this type.
Specialised Mystic Code (限定礼装, Gentei Reisō?)
A Specialised-type one performs Magecrafts contained within it automatically when supplied magical energy by its user. While their usage is limited, they can be tremendously efficient in what they do. Many of the Noble Phantasms[5], some jewels[7], the Jeweled Sword Zelretch[8] and the Dress of Heaven[2] are of this type. A regular Mystic Code would not be much of a weapon against Dark Sakura, but the Jewel Sword is kind of a foul play as it can start up the Second Magic.
Supreme Mystic Code (至上礼装, Shijō Reisō?)
A Mystic Code given this title is worthy of symbolizing any one of families to which the Twelve Lords of the Clock Tower and people in the next highest posts belong. The El-Melloi family's Supreme Mystic Code is Volumen Hydrargyrum.[9]

Miscellaneous[]

Amongst Mystic Codes there are several which are unique enough even amongst Magi to warrant interest. Examples of which are as follows.

  • Kiritsugu Emiya's Mystic Code, the Thompson Contender, is unique by virtue of being a pistol, a tool normally despised by Magus. Combining bullets made from his own rib bones and the high stopping power of the weapon itself, it is this one of a kind tool that made him a terrifying Magus Killer.
  • Tohsaka Jewel Magic, whilst the jewels themselves can count as Mystic Codes,[7] users of this type of Magecraft can make more specialised tools to act as their personal Mystic Code. Tokiomi Tohsaka created a staff topped with a jewel that allowed him to cast powerful spells quickly and was not used up after a single use, unlike many of Rin's attacks. Similarly, he gifted Kirei Kotomine with a Azoth Sword that was designed in much the same manner.

    Magical Formal Wear: Mystic Code
    Magic formal wear are tools that magi use to support their execution of magics and are also called "Mystic Codes" or "Formal Wear". There are many different types of functions and shapes to Mystic Codes, but these are generally broken up into two types. The first are those that supplement the magic energy of a magus when he uses magic. The second are those where the Mystic Code itself has a predetermined set effect and a function that activates that effect when used.
    Similar to Mystic Codes, there are also "Conceptual Arms". These are weapons where meaning is imparted to items via accumulated history, lore, rituals and the sort, and made so as to affect souls and spiritual bodies.
    In‌ ‌‌Fate/stay‌ ‌night‌,‌ ‌the‌ ‌‌"Dress‌ ‌of‌ ‌Heaven‌‌" ‌and‌ ‌‌"Jewel‌ ‌Sword‌ ‌Zelretch‌‌" ‌are‌ ‌Mystic‌ ‌Codes,‌ while the "Black Keys" are "Conceptual Arms".

    •Support‌ ‌Formal‌ ‌Wear:‌ ‌Support‌ ‌Code‌
    Mystic‌ ‌Codes‌ ‌that‌ ‌function‌ ‌as‌ ‌aids‌ ‌to‌ ‌the‌ ‌use‌ ‌of‌ ‌magic‌ ‌are‌ ‌called‌ ‌Support‌ ‌Codes.‌ ‌Specifically,‌ ‌many‌ ‌Mystic‌ ‌Codes‌ ‌function‌ ‌to‌ ‌amplify‌ ‌or‌ ‌enhance‌ ‌a‌ ‌magus’‌ ‌power.‌ ‌By‌ ‌using‌ ‌a‌ ‌Support‌ ‌Code,‌ ‌one‌ ‌can‌ ‌power‌ ‌magic‌ ‌with‌ ‌less‌ ‌energy,‌ ‌or‌ ‌utilize‌ ‌great‌ ‌quantities‌ ‌of‌ ‌energy‌ ‌beyond‌ ‌one’s‌ ‌personal‌ ‌limits.‌ ‌For‌ ‌this‌ ‌reason,‌ ‌it‌ ‌is‌ ‌common‌ ‌for‌ ‌any‌ ‌magus‌ ‌to‌ ‌maintain‌ ‌at‌ ‌least‌ ‌one‌ ‌Mystic‌ ‌Code‌ ‌as‌ ‌an‌ ‌energy‌ ‌reserve.‌ ‌
    For‌ ‌portability‌ ‌and‌ ‌ease‌ ‌of‌ ‌deployment,‌ ‌form‌ ‌factors‌ ‌that‌ ‌can‌ ‌easily‌ ‌be‌ ‌carried‌ ‌in‌ ‌the‌ ‌hand‌ ‌are‌ ‌favored.‌ ‌The‌ ‌items‌ ‌that‌ ‌magi‌ ‌favor‌ ‌include‌ ‌daggers,‌ ‌short‌ ‌canes,‌ ‌books,‌ ‌jewels,‌ ‌and‌ ‌so‌ ‌forth.‌

    Azoth‌ ‌Blade‌
    One‌ ‌of‌ ‌Tohsaka‌ ‌Rin’s‌ ‌Support‌ ‌Codes.‌ ‌It‌ ‌is‌ ‌a‌ ‌typical‌ ‌Mystic‌ ‌Code,‌ ‌given‌ ‌as‌ ‌a‌ ‌gift‌ ‌to‌ ‌commemorate‌ ‌one’s‌ ‌coming‌ ‌of‌ ‌age.‌

    •Limited‌ ‌Function‌
    In‌ ‌contrast‌ ‌to‌ ‌the‌ ‌auxiliary‌ ‌function‌ ‌of‌ ‌Support‌ ‌Codes,‌ ‌the‌ ‌capability‌ ‌of‌ ‌Mystic‌ ‌Codes‌ ‌to‌ ‌actualize‌ ‌phenomena‌ ‌on‌ ‌their‌ ‌own‌ ‌is‌ ‌called‌ ‌a‌ ‌Limited‌ ‌Function.‌ ‌A‌ ‌complicated‌ ‌procedure‌ ‌is‌ ‌not‌ ‌required‌ ‌to‌ ‌use‌ ‌a‌ ‌Limited‌ ‌Function;‌ ‌instead,‌ ‌one‌ ‌can‌ ‌just‌ ‌flow‌ ‌energy‌ ‌into‌ ‌the‌ ‌Mystic‌ ‌Code.‌
    Mystic‌ ‌Codes‌ ‌that‌ ‌have‌ ‌Limited‌ ‌Functions‌ ‌cannot‌ ‌be‌ ‌used‌ ‌by‌ ‌just‌ ‌any‌ ‌magus,‌ ‌unlike‌ ‌Support‌ ‌Codes.‌ ‌In‌ ‌addition‌ ‌to‌ ‌allowing‌ ‌one‌ ‌to‌ ‌achieve‌ ‌effects‌ ‌that‌ ‌cannot‌ ‌be‌ ‌achieved‌ ‌with‌ ‌one’s‌ ‌own‌ ‌magic,‌ ‌they‌ ‌are‌ ‌highly‌ ‌practical‌ ‌because‌ ‌they‌ ‌can‌ ‌easily‌ ‌be‌ ‌used‌ ‌without‌ ‌performing‌ ‌a‌ ‌complex‌ ‌ritual.‌
    Although‌ ‌Noble‌ ‌Phantasms‌ ‌are‌ ‌paired‌ ‌with‌ ‌Heroic‌ ‌Spirits‌ ‌from‌ ‌legend,‌ ‌and‌ ‌so‌ ‌incomparably‌ ‌powerful‌ ‌as‌ ‌to‌ ‌be‌ ‌considered‌ ‌in‌ ‌a‌ ‌league‌ ‌of‌ ‌their‌ ‌own,‌ ‌most‌ ‌Noble‌ ‌Phantasms‌ ‌that‌ ‌Heroic‌ ‌Spirits‌ ‌possess‌ ‌are‌ ‌Mystic‌ ‌Codes‌ ‌with‌ ‌Limited‌ ‌Functions.‌

    Dress‌ ‌of‌ ‌Heaven‌
    A‌ ‌Mystic‌ ‌Code‌ ‌passed‌ ‌down‌ ‌through‌ ‌the‌ ‌Einzbern‌ ‌lineage.‌ ‌It‌ ‌is‌ ‌the‌ ‌final‌ ‌stage‌ ‌of‌ ‌the‌ ‌Holy‌ ‌Grail‌ ‌War,‌ ‌functioning‌ ‌to‌ ‌control‌ ‌the‌ ‌Greater‌ ‌Grail.‌ ‌Illya,‌ ‌who‌ ‌was‌ ‌designed‌ ‌as‌ ‌a‌ ‌Holy‌ ‌Grail,‌ ‌is‌ ‌in‌ ‌her‌ ‌completed‌ ‌form‌ ‌when‌ ‌she‌ ‌wears‌ ‌the‌ ‌dress.‌ ‌

    Jewel‌ ‌Sword‌ ‌Zelretch‌
    This‌ ‌Mystic‌ ‌Code,‌ ‌possessed‌ ‌by‌ ‌the‌ ‌Wizard‌ ‌Marshal‌ ‌Zelretch,‌ ‌has‌ ‌the‌ ‌Limited‌ ‌Function‌ ‌to‌ ‌use‌ ‌the‌ ‌Second‌ ‌Magic.‌ ‌It‌ ‌is‌ ‌among‌ ‌the‌ ‌apex‌ ‌of‌ ‌Mystic‌ ‌Codes,‌ ‌able‌ ‌to‌ ‌tap‌ ‌and‌ ‌use‌ ‌the‌ ‌mana‌ ‌sources‌ ‌of‌ ‌infinite‌ ‌parallel‌ ‌worlds.‌

    Rin
    An item of ceremonial magical equipment that Rin treasures.
    This object is not a weapon as it amplifies the magical energy of the owner, and it is instead used as a staff to support and amplify magic usage.
    It is a popular item in the Magic Association, and a common commemorative gift given by masters and parents when entering adulthood.
    The original is said to be a dagger favored by the man who established the foundations of present day alchemy.

    [v] Fate/side material - Encyclopedia: Tohsaka Rin [Person's name], p.067-068 [T]

    Rin Tohsaka [Person's name]
    Current head of the distinguished Tohsaka family, and one of the main heroines of Fate/stay night. As a Master, she spent just as much time quarreling with Shirou as she did cooperating with him.
    Her manner of speech is often hostile and dismissive of other people, but deep down she has a caring, big-sisterly disposition.
    Her tendency of making trivial mistakes at the worst possible moment is a hereditary curse.
    Though she really is a lot nicer than she seems, in the end she always makes her decisions based on cold, rational logic. In her own words, it's "not a very cute personality".
    There are even times when she thinks she might lack any sort of "girlishness" at all, and it's starting to become something of a complex for her.
    In fact, her choice in personal clothes is probably an overreaction to that. Still, showing that much leg… a pure and wholesome boy won't know where to look. Please, try to bear with it, Shirou.
    Her hobbies are admiring jewels and bullying Shirou.
    She's a mischievous girl at heart, so she loves teasing serious people. Please, try to bear with it, Shirou.
    As far as sorcery goes, she specializes in the flow and conversion of magical energy.
    Since it's not a sorcery trait well-suited for combat, she stores away magical energy in jewels ahead of time, and uses them as disposable, limited-function mystic codes.
    Aside from that, she also practices pseudo-karate as a form of self-defense.
    Her instructor in martial arts is Kotomine. That fake priest was responsible for the sequence of moves she used to corner Caster.
    By the way, she had the most screen time out of every character in Fate/stay night.

    遠坂凜【人名】
    魔道の名門・遠坂の現当主。
    本編の正ヒロイン。マスターの一人として、士郎といがみあったり協力したりする忙しい女の子。
    何かと攻撃的で人を突き放す口調だが、根は姐御肌で面倒見がいい。
    ここぞという時に凡ミスをかますのは、もはや遺伝的な呪いである。
    冷酷なようで優しいのだが、最後には合理的な道を選ぶ、本人曰く“可愛くない性格”。
    どうも、自分は「女の子」としての部分が欠落している、と思っている節があり、密かにコンプレックス になっている。
    あの私服はその反動なのだろうが、それにしても脚を見せすぎで、健全な男子は目のやり場に困るのではないだろうか? 耐えろ士郎。
    趣味は宝石鑑賞と士郎いじり。根がいたずらっ子なので、真面目なヤツをからかうのが大好きなのだ。もっと耐えろ士郎。
    得意な魔術は魔力の流動、変換。
    実はあまり攻撃には向いていない魔術特性で、その為、宝石に魔力をストックし、使い捨てのお手軽な限 定礼装として使用する。
    その他、護身用として空手もどきを噛んでいる。
    格闘技の先生は言峰で、キャスターを追い詰めた凜の連続攻撃はあのエセ神父じこみというワケだ。

    Gem Sword Zelretch
    Rin
    A limited magic item that possesses the abilities of the sorcery.
    While it cannot open doors to parallel worlds, it allows a degree of intervention through looking between them, and it even allows for sharing of magical energy present in the air.
    The gem part of the name comes from the kaleidoscopic appearance of its polyhedral structure.
    There's no need to explain why Kaleidoscope is Zelretch's nickname.

  9. [v] Lord El-Melloi II Case Files material - Encyclopedia: Volumen Hydrargyrum [Mystic Code], p.099

    Moon Spirit’s Spinal Fluid(Volumen Hydrargyrum) [Mystic Code]
    Supreme Mystic Code of the El-Melloi family.
    The term Supreme Mystic Code refers to a Mystic Code sufficient to be called symbolic of a family of similar level to one of the Twelve Lords of the Clock Tower. In Volumen Hydrargyrum’s case, it was created by Lord Kayneth in his early twenties, a clear demonstration of the once-Lord’s exceptional talent.
    Ever changing in form, it is a Mystic Code capable of performing both offensively and defensively without showing any openings. Its true nature however is that of a remote processor.
    Upon inheriting it, Reines followed the advice of El-Melloi II and created a familiar out of it, endowing it with an elementary kind of artificial intelligence. It was the best advice for Reines who, rather than having the exceptional Magic Circuits of her predecessor, instead boasted a talent for precise control.
    By forcing it to remember Reines’ precise control, the artificial intelligence is able to imitate it perfectly. The newly christened Trimmau being capable of taking so many various forms is primarily a result of this advice she received.
    In addition, because of Trimmau’s nature, it has also learned a great many things from Flat’s magical hacking. Though that has included a large amount of unnecessary wit and famous sayings, Reines has thus far turned a blind eye to it for the sake of the other merits it brings.

    月霊髄液(ヴォールメン・ハイドラグラム)【礼装】
    エルメロイ家の至上礼装。
    至上礼装とは、君主を輩出する十二家やそれに匹敵する名家の蔵する中でも、その家系を象徴するに足ると認められた特別な礼装である。月霊髄液の場合、いまだ二十代前半であった君主ケイネスがつくったというのだから、先代がいかに優秀だったかが窺いしれる。
    変幻自在、攻守に隙のない魔術礼装でありつつ、その本来の性能は隔絶した演算機であった。
    ライネスが受け継いだ際、エルメロイII世の助言を受けて、初歩的な人工知性を付与された使い魔に加工される。これはケイネスほどの優れた魔術回路は持たないものの、精密操作においては特筆すべき才能を持ったライネスに、ベストなアドバイスだった。
    ライネスの精密操作を人工知性に覚えさせれば、その通りに模倣してくれるためだ。新たにトリムマウと名付けられた月霊髄液が、さまざまな変形パターンを見せるのは、このアドバイスによるところが大きい。
    なお、その性質上、フラットの魔術ハッキングから(人工知性が)学ぶところも多い。余計な知恵や名言を大量に詰め込まれつつも、フラットとの行動をライネスが黙認しているのは、このメリットのためである。

  10. [v] Lord El-Melloi II Case Files material - Encyclopedia: Add [Mystic Code/Other], p.097

    Add [Mystic Code/Other]
    The Mystic Code sealing the Noble Phantasm Rhongomyniad, possessed by Gray.
    Created by the Witch Morgan, she based the artificial personality within it on the knight with the least adoration for King Arthur from the Round Table. Thinking about the Atlas Contract Incident, that trick seemed more like a plot to “prevent the return of King Arthur” at that time. It was like a strange trick to say “I’ll help with your revival, but I don’t want it to succeed.”
    Before being created, its true form was that of the Logos React Replica. Using the extreme calculative ability inherited from the Seven Superweapons of the Atlas Institute, it continues to seal Rhongomyniad within it. In its released form, it can of course take the shape of a scythe, but also that of a hammer, shield, hook spear, or even a boomerang. It is also able to use its immense calculative ability to display a portion of the power of Rhongomyniad itself. The appearance of the knight in “The Atlas Contract” occurred due to the same theoretical principle. Their personality was a result of a complex merger of that original knight’s and the present day Add’s, so strictly speaking it belonged to neither of them. That was likely why it was able to finally deploy the Pseudo Phantasm.
    For Gray, Add was her only friend for a long time.
    The name Add comes both from the word “addition” and from the tail end of the word “Rhongomyniad.”

    アッド【礼装/そのほか】
    グレイの持つ宝具・最果てにて輝ける槍に付与された封印礼装。
    魔女モルガンによって加工され、彼女の知る中で最もアーサー王に心酔していない円卓の騎士が、人工人格の基礎となった。『アトラスの契約』の事件を考えれば、その細工はむしろあのタイミングで「アーサー王の復活をとどめる」ために仕組まれた形跡がある。まるで、「復活に協力するが復活してほしくない」とでもいうような、奇妙な仕掛けであった。
    加工される以前の正体は、ロゴスリアクト・レプリカ。かのアトラス院の七大兵器から引き継いだ超演算機能こそが、内側の最果てにて輝ける槍を封印しつづけている。限定解除の鎌はもちろん、ハンマーや盾や鉤槍、果てはブーメランにまで変形するのも、この演算機能の応用によって、ロンゴミニアドの能力の一部を表出させたものだ。『アトラスの契約』で顕現した騎士も理論的には同様。その性格は過去の騎士と現在のアッドが複雑にまじりあった、厳密にはどちらでもないものだったが、だからこそ最後の疑似宝具を展開できたのだろう。
    グレイにとっては、本当に長い間唯一の友達だった。
    なお、アッドの名前は、加えるのアッドと、ロンゴミニアドのアドから。

    At the 16th Century, he is known as a character from the Renaissance Period.
    He left behind many achievements and books such as the "rediscovery of the four (five) elements" and the "rediscovery of the three humors".
    A rare individual who went down in both human and magic history.

    The original model of the Azoth sword. Paracelsus' magic sword.
    A mystic code composed of ultra-high density "philosopher's stone".

    Level 5 Bond
    Originally, the effect of this Noble Phantasm was to amplify・supplement・strengthen his magecraft, but - by performing ritual magecraft by means of the magical power of the blade, and employing the five elements as catalyst - a temporary pseudo-composition of True Ether from the Age of Gods is also possible.
    He then smashes the surroundings with the fearsome destructive power of this True Ether (fake).

    Interlude
    The wish he once had for the Holy Grail was "to reach the Root".
    Furthermore, he also wanted to ascertain the authenticity of his personal opinion regarding how the light of the star (like that of a holy sword) is indeed a light shining from the Root-- or so it was.
    But it may be that he is currently seeking for atonement instead.

    Barrel Replica [Weapon name]
    The mystic code possessed by Sion. A replica of the Black Barrel, one of the seven superweapons on display at the Atlas Institute. It is a conceptual armament of "natural lifespan", which demonstrates a toxin (attack power) in proportion to the predestined span of the target's life.
    Sion uses this Barrel Replica in her Arc Drive, but it seems that she isn't utilizing its original function.
    Also, though she discharges the energy horizontally in her Last Arc, Barrel Replica Obelisk, she is able to avoid being blown back by the recoil by anchoring her body to the ground with Etherlite.

  13. [v] Fate/Apocrypha material - Encyclopedia: Coupled Reinforcement Mystic Codes [Others], p.183 [T]

    Coupled Reinforcement Mystic Codes [Others]
    Bronze-Link Manipulators. A Mystic Code that Fiore designed herself. It takes over the role of her paralyzed legs. It consists of four prosthetic arms equipped to her back. It was forged using a special alloy that easily conducts prana and is possessed by four animal (dog) spirits, so while Fiore can move them according to her will, the arms also move automatically to protect their master.
    Unlike the Volumen Hydrargyrum that Kayneth El-Melloi designed, its movement pattern memories are kept to a minimum. When too many movement patterns are recorded into it, it exceeds the thought process limit of the animal spirits. In other words, it is slightly inferior to Volumen Hydrargyrum in terms of attack power. In exchange, its defense—its function to protect its master fully uses the reflex speed of the animals, so it can’t be broken through with a normal Mystic Code.
    When she controls it herself, the prana burden is quite large, but when it’s switched to auto-mode, the prana burden is lessened. It is best described as a Mystic Code whose defensive aspect is more strongly ironed out than its offense.
    Incidentally, this is a secret to everyone besides Caules, but Fiore gave each arm the pet names Aster, Blanca, Comet and Wolf respectively.

  14. [v] MOONLIGHT/LOSTROOM material - Encyclopedia: Chaldeas [Other]

    Chaldeas [Other]
    The infinitesimal global environment model. A Mystic code that imitates the soul of the earth.
    A hypothesis that the Animusphere family of “Astrology,” one of the Clock Tower’s 12 departments, continued to pursue.
    It assumes that the planet possesses a “soul,” and copies that soul, as the “data of another Earth” from a 100 years ahead that is operated as a virtual simulation.
    It was launched by Marisbury Animusphere, and since then, Chaldea has guaranteed the future where “civilization still exists even after 100 years” by observing this global model.
    It is a mass of information dense enough to have mass, and it is said to be impossible to touch by matter due to their difference of phase.
    Animusphere thought that it was impossible to create an “existence that identical to the Earth" from scratch, but it would be possible to copy the soul in its entirety, and he put this in practice. Of course, the content of the “file” cannot be analyzed even if the copy is successful, however, what’s important is the surface of the “copied file.”
    There is no need to analyze the content if the goal is to just keep it running. Animusphere activated the duplicated soul of the Earth without any intention of opening its contents, treating it as a simulation tool to observe 100 years into the future. As a result, it is said that once stopped, it will be impossible to restart. After all, nobody knows the structure of its contents.
    Since it can be used as an unwavering map of human history, it can also be used as a support system for the Pseudo-Spiritron conversion and transference, Rayshift.
    At the start of FGO part two, this treasure of humanity was frozen and sealed by the hands of Lostbelt Servant Anastasia.

    カルデアス【そのほか】
    極小の地球の環境モデル。地球の魂を模写した魔術礼装。
    時計塔十二科の一つ、『天体』のアニムスフィア家が追究し続けた仮説。
    惑星にも『魂』があると仮定し、その魂を複写し、一〇〇年先の状態で仮想運営させている“もう一つの地球のデータ”である。
    マリスビリー・アニムスフィアによって起動し、以降、カルデアはこの地球モデルを観測する事で“一〇〇年後も文明は続いている”という未来を保障してきた。
    質量を持つほどの高密度の情報の塊であり、物質はその位相の違いから触れる事ができないとされる。
    アニムスフィアは『地球とまったく同じもの』を一から作り上げる事は不可能だが、その魂をまるごと複写する事は可能だと考え、これを実践した。無論、複写に成功したところで『そのファイル』の中身を解析する事はできないが、大事なのは『複写したファイル』というガワである。
    ただ運営するだけなら中身の解析は必要ない。アニムスフィアは複製した地球の魂を、その中身を開ける事なく起動させ、一〇〇年後を視るだけのシミュレーターとして利用したのである。その為、一度止めてしまうと再起動は不可能とされている。なにしろ中身の構造が誰にも判っていないのだから。
    揺るぎない人類史のマップとしても利用できる為、擬似霊子変換移転・レイシフトのサポートシステムとしても使われた。
    FGO二部開始時、この人類の宝は異聞帯サーヴァント・アナスタシアの手で凍結され、封印されてしまう。

    Penetrating Blade of Gold(Erosion) [Mystic Code]
    A Mystic Code in the form of a dagger, passed down in Gray’s hometown.
    According to legend, it was handed down to them by the Black Madonna, to be kept until the time of King Arthur’s return. The blade itself possesses the ability to separate the mind and soul from the flesh. It was intended to separate Gray’s mind and soul from her body, allowing the spirit of King Arthur to inhabit her body in the final stages of the ritual.

    伝説によれば、アーサー王が戻ってくるそのときまで伝えるべしと、黒い聖母その人によって渡されたのだという。その刃は、肉体から精神と魂を剥ぎ取る力がある。儀式の最終段階において、この礼装がグレイの肉体から精神と魂を剥ぎ取り、代わりにアーサー王の精神と魂を招くはずだった。

    Kairi Sisigou [Person's name]
    One of the Masters of the Red Camp. However, he chose to act independently with his Servant without joining Shirou Kotomine’s group. His Servant is Saber of Red, Mordred. His fiendish appearance is just like that of an American outlaw. He isn’t a magus, but rather a magecraft user. Though he can’t match magi in terms of knowledge, he ranks equally in terms of battle experience with Darnic who has survived for a hundred years.
    He normally wanders from battlefield to battlefield recovering the corpses of magi and plundering their Magic Crests. Fundamentally, he intentionally acts so as not to increase the number of casualties. This is because causalities are always appearing somewhere in the world every day and night even without him doing anything.
    He habitually uses a sawed-off (meaning with a shortened barrel) shotgun as a Mystic Code, but he only uses it as medium for the Gandr spell and doesn’t use it in its original purpose as a gun. Also, he fundamentally uses things like hand grenades made out of hearts, animal eyeballs and monkey hands as part of his necromancy, so the majority of his Mystic Codes are in extreme bad taste.
    He chose to participate in the Great Holy Grail War after receiving a request from the Association of Magi. Originally, he had planned to fight alongside the other Red Servants, but he chose to take independent action due to not being able to trust Shirou Kotomine and his Servant Semiramis. He and Saber engaged in skirmishes with the Black Servants and won against Berserker of Black, but then they noticed the scheme of the Red Master Shirou Kotomine and decided to put the war on hold.
    However, they still fought to obtain the Holy Grail right till the very end, but they dropped out of the Great Holy Grail War when Mordred and Semiramis dealt mutually fatal strikes against each other. The actions that Shishigou took to save Mordred also backfired on him and caused him to die.
    The sole thing decided about the two of them from the initial plotting stages was that they would “rampage around as they like without regretting anything and fight and fight until they die while smiling” as “this story’s Bonnie and Clyde”. Well, Bonnie and Clyde didn’t die while smiling, though.
    In the past, Shishigou’s talent as a magus was first-rate, but is now second-rate. As a magecraft user, he is first-rate. As a Master, well, I suppose he gets a passing mark for having well managed Mo-san, who is quite tricky and difficult to deal with, without once antagonizing her.
    He seems to have poured a lot of affection towards his stepdaughter whose name was never revealed in the story, and if you search the back pockets of his jacket, you can fight an old photo of the two of them together there. However, his appearance became fiendish after he began going out to battlefields, so his face in the photo is very much that of a serious scholar.
    If Mordred ever saw that photo, she would first laugh for a while, but then she would understand the unpleasant truth about it and turn silent. In other words, she would realize his unbelievable despair of having chosen a wound-filled life that made the man into that photo turn into the person in front of her.
    The wish that Shishigou had for the Holy Grail was actually something truly acute. Somewhere in his heart, he thought that the wish that he publicly spoke of wasn’t true, but that his real wish was simply to undo the death of his stepdaughter.
    The moment he realized and accepted that, everything about Shishigou’s life as a magus reached its end.
    Furthermore, in the initial plot, Shishigou Kairi was descended from the family that Darnic chased out. However, it created a contradiction chronologically and the plot wasn’t that entwined with Yggdmillennia in the first place, so it was easily discarded.

    Thompson Center Arms Contender Custom [Armament]
    The customized firearm that Emiya Kiritsugu uses as a mystic code. It is a single-shot pistol originally developed for use in hunting and competitions. The barrel can be easily switched out, allowing it to be used with a large variety of bullet calibers. By fitting it with a handmade barrel forged using magical processes, and using special bullets that contain his own powdered ribs, Kiritsugu has transformed it into a deadly anti-magus weapon. Well, that's the short version; for a significantly more long winded explanation please refer to volume 2.
    Incidentally, this gun was actually what made me want to write a story like Fate/Zero in the first place. In a way, you could say it was the start of everything. Or more specifically, it was Lance Henriksen's performance in Hard Target. I guess what I'm trying to say is, thank you so much, Mr. John Woo. Stranglehold was really fun. Will there be flying doves in Red Wall, too?

    この銃こそ、元を質せば、筆者がFate/Zeroなどという与太を飛ばしはじめた契機ともなったネタであり、すべての始まりとも言える。さらに与太話のそのまた発端は『ハード・ターゲット』のランス・ヘンリクセンが格好良すぎた件に尽きるわけで、何が言いたいのかというとジョン・ウー先生ありがとうストラングルホールド超楽しかったです。ところで赤壁の戦いでもハトは飛ぶんでしょうか。

  20. [v] Lord El-Melloi II Case Files material - Encyclopedia: Melvin Weins [Person], p.110

    Melvin Weins [Person]
    The Tuner of Garbage. Or, the garbage Tuner.
    The second word to come out of his mouth is always “Mama.” The third is “women.” The fourth is “Money,” but before he can get to his fifth, he’ll start vomiting blood. Truly, from the bottom of his heart, a useless magus.
    At present, he is the only one remaining who refers to El-Melloi II by the name of Waver.
    Though his skill as a Tuner of Magic Crests is legendary, it was never something he wanted. His persistent habit of vomiting blood isn’t a gag at all. Without his magical hematopoietic medicine, it would be an ordeal to survive even a single day with his body.
    As a result, the proper use of his Magic Circuits was rather difficult, so even though he had the talent to reach the rank of Brand, he retired from the competitive life of a magus early. After that many people, including his own father, deserted him.
    But as a result, perhaps as some strange coincidence, he learned of his extraordinary talent for manipulating the Magical Circuits and thus Magic Crests of others. The father that deserted him returned with nothing but smiles, and many times more people than left him flocked to his side.
    But, after going out to meet the returning crowd, Melvin had changed a little.
    “This isn’t because of my environment or anything. I was a monster like this right from the beginning.”
    So he says, but there was no doubt he began to test those around him more after that incident. This happened around the same time he lent Waver the money to visit the Far East after he bragged about turning the Clock Tower upside down.
    His mother is a powerful woman, who even that Magdanel acknowledges. Even when Melvin’s father abandoned him, his mother stayed by his side. The tools he uses for his Tuning work that he carries around everywhere were all put together by his mother. The strangely high price for them on the Rail Zeppelin stems from the fact they are a Mystic Code of the Renaissance era, and possess a level of precision difficult to reproduce in the current age.
    Though his first appearance was at the end of Volume 4, he existed in the proposal document written up a year prior to the release of Volume 1, acting together with Gray as the deciding factors for the direction Case Files would take. If Gray is a character symbolizing the present day El-Melloi II, then Melvin is the character that symbolizes his past.

    メルヴィン・ウェインズ【人名】
    クズの調律師。もしくは調律師のクズ。
    二言目にはママ。三言目には女。四言目には金がきて、五言目を口にするときには吐血している心底ダメな魔術師。
    現在、唯一エルメロイII世をウェイバーと呼ぶ青年でもある。
    魔術刻印の調律師としてはほとんど伝説的な腕前なのだが、けして本人がそうなりたかったわけではない。しょっちゅう吐血をしているのはギャグでもなんでもなく、魔術による増血剤なしには、一日生き抜くのも難しい身体なのだ。
    このため、十全に魔術回路を働かせるのは難しく、ひょっとすれば色位も目指せるのではという素質を持ちながら、早々に魔術師の競争をリタイヤした。そんな彼から多くの人々は離れ、父親さえも彼を見放した。
    だが、その結果として、他人の魔術回路および魔術刻印を操る調律師としての資質を発見されたのは、奇縁というべきかどうか。見放したはずの父親は笑顔で戻り、周囲の人々は何倍もの数になって帰ってきた。
    ただ、彼らを迎えた後のメルヴィンは、いささか変化した。
    「別に環境でこうなったわけじゃなし。私が人でなしなのは、最初からのことだよ」
    とは本人の弁だが、この事件以降、なにかと他人を試すような行動が増えたのは間違いない。時計塔をひっくり返してやると豪語したウェイバーに、極東までの旅行費を貸し出したのもこの時期である。
    なお、母親はあのマグダネルさえ一目置く女傑。父親が見放したときでさえ、彼女はメルヴィンを捨てなかった。メルヴィンが常に携帯している調律器も、この母親が手配したもの。魔眼蒐集列車で異様な高値がついていたのも当然で、もはや現代ではこれほどの精度は難しいとされる、ルネサンス期の魔術礼装である。
    初登場こそ四巻ラストだが、一巻発売の一年以上前の企画書から原型となる設定があり、グレイと同様に事件簿の方向性を定めた。グレイがエルメロイII世の現在を象徴するキャラクターなら、メルヴィンは過去を象徴するキャラクターである。

    An imitation created by Flat at the behest of El-Melloi II after he analyzed the spell and Mystic Code used by Atram. As a result, Caules was able to awaken his own talent for Electricity Magecraft, which he was most compatible with.
    Because there was no patent for the batteries, there was no problem between them and the Faculty of Law, but Reines’ concern shown by her complaint of “don’t come crying to me when they murder you over it” was perhaps natural.

  24. [v] Fate/Zero material - Encyclopedia: Volumen Hydrargyrum [Magecraft], p.092

    Volumen Hydrargyrum [Magecraft]
    One of the mystic codes employed by Lord El-Melloi. Essentially, it is a mass of magically-infused mercury that has been filled with a large variety of movement patterns and programmed to respond appropriately depending on the situation. I guess you could call it a kind of battle golem? Out of all of Kayneth's armaments, it has the greatest capacity for physical destruction. He had prepared many other mystic codes designed for battles with curses and conjurations, but the vast majority of them were lost when his hotel was blown up by Kiritsugu.
    Though it wouldn't be wrong to call it an almighty weapon due to its versatility, in the end it is still just an automaton, and once you see through its movement patterns it's fairly easy to handle. Also, since the magical energy required to operate it is directly proportional to the complexity of its shape, it is necessary to keep it in its basic form as much as possible – switching to a more complex form drastically reduces its reaction speed and power. The final "sea urchin" transformation used in the battle against Kiritsugu was a form that combined both raw defensive ability and cunning, but accordingly the drain on Kayneth's magical energy was immense.
    By the way, after the war ended Lord El-Melloi II may or may not have reprogrammed this mystic code and employed it as a multi-purpose maid golem. Though it has enough intellectual capacity to perform simple household chores, it seems there's a troublesome bug that pops up every now and then that causes it to rampage around insisting that it's a killer robot from the future. Maybe it was shown a detrimental movie just when it was on the verge of completing its education in good taste…?

    月霊髄液(ヴォールメン・ハイドラグラム)【魔術】
    ロード・エルメロイが駆使する礼装の一つ。魔力を充填した水銀に多鍾多様な行動パターンを記憶させ、状況に応じた最善の反応をとるよう設定したもの。戦闘用ゴーレムの一種と言えなくもない。こと物理エネルギーとしての破壊力においてはケイネスの武装の中でも最強。彼はこれ以外にも呪術戦、幻術戦に特化した礼装を多数用意していたが、切嗣によるホテル爆破によって大多数が失われた。月霊髄液の多機能性は万能兵器と呼ぶに相応しいものの、所詮は自動機械であり、ひとたび行動パターンを見切られてしまうと対処されやすい。また操作に費やす魔力は形態の複雑さに比例するため、なるべく単純な形態を維持する必要があるが、いったん液圧をかけにくい形態に変形してしまうと、次の動作は反応速度、パワーともに著しく劣化する。最後のウニ型変形は防御力と機敏さを両立させうる形態だったが、それに費やすケイネスの魔力負担は相当なものだっただろう。
    ちなみに後のエルメロイⅡ世は、この目霊髄液を改良進化させて多機能メイドゴーレムとして使役しているとかいないとか。簡単な家事雑役をこなせる程度の思考力を持つものの、時々自分のことを未来から来た殺人兵器だと主張して暴走する困ったバグがあるらしい。よほど情操教育に有害な映画でも見せたんでしょうか。

    Cigars [Mystic Code]
    One of the few Mystic Codes carried by El-Melloi II. The tobacco inside was specially put together by El-Melloi II himself. There are many varieties, from those used for defence, for setting up Bounded Fields, for stabilizing the mind, and for activating Magic Circuits.
    As to why he decided on cigars, after being forced into the position of El-Melloi II, a panicked Waver Velvet was searching for some way to make himself look more Lord-like, to which some drunk magus mentioned that “A cigar and a suit are a man’s weapons.” Or something like that.

    葉巻【礼装】
    エルメロイII世が持ち歩く、数少ない魔術礼装。中身のタバコはII世が自分なりに配合したもの。防御用、結界用、精神安定用、魔術回路の賦活用などの種類がある。
    なぜ葉巻を選んだかというと、エルメロイII世に封じられた後、なんとか君主として取り繕わねばならないと焦っていたウェイバー・ベルベットに、「葉巻とスーツは男の武装だ」と諭した酒浸りの魔術師がいたからだとか。
