Primate Murder

Primate Murder (プライミッツ・マーダー, Puraimittsu Mādā?)  — also known as the White Beast (白い獣, Shiroi Kemono?) and Altrouge's Demonic Dog (アルトルージュの魔犬, Arutorūju no Maken?) — is a Beast of Gaia (ガイアの怪物, Gaia no Kaibutsu?) and the first of The Twenty-seven Dead Apostle Ancestors.[1][2] In the worlds wherein the Common Sense of Man (人理, Jinri?, lit. "Human Order") pulses with vitality, it may be referred to as the Beast IV (ビーストIV, Bīsuto IV?), being of a species of organism known as the Breed of Calamity (災害の種, Saigai no Shu?).

Profile[edit | edit source]

Background[edit | edit source]

Primate Murder is the form taken by Cath Palug in worlds where he was not able to obtain a different perspective on humans by staying with Merlin. Primate Murder came to be under Altrouge Brunestud's control at some point.[3]

Appearance[edit | edit source]

Cath Palug claims that if he were allowed to mature normally, he would degenerate into "an unsightly monstrosity." It's possible he would have horns.

Role[edit | edit source]

Primate Murder has yet to appear directly in any works. Avenger briefly references it in Fate/hollow ataraxia, calling it a better murderer than himself.

Abilities[edit | edit source]

Primate Murder, the Murderer of Primates (霊長の殺人者, Reichō no Satsujinsha?), has the "absolute right of killing over man", a "super advantage" over primates, so it is counted amongst the world's strongest beings.[1][4][2] Compared to Angra Mainyu who would normally be the best existence at killing humans, Primate Murder, along with Type Mercury, is a better murderer who far surpasses him in terms of the speed with which it is able to kill humans.[5] It takes seven guardians to control it, and like Type Mercury, it is considered to be in a league of its own compared to beings like Servants and other Dead Apostle Ancestors.[4][6] It is owned by Altrouge and only listens to her, so she can be said to be a greater monster than Crimson Moon in a way.[3][2] While not a Dead Apostle, it has, in mimicking its master, developed a taste for human blood.[2]

    The Twenty-seven Dead Apostle Ancestors [Term]
    The 27 oldest Dead Apostles.
    There are the Ancestors of the Elder Title, whose age exceeds 4000 years, Ancestors sealed by the Holy Church, Ancestors secretly biding their time in the unexplored regions of the world, and even Ancestors akin to a family that passes on the throne to a successor every 500 years.
    They each have their own factions, and are engaged in vicious power struggles within them. Perhaps for them, this is one of the few things that gives meaning to their existence now that their sense for amusement has completely worn away.
    On rare occasions an Ancestor will die, but since there is always a successor to replace them, the number of Ancestors never changes. In fact, it could be said that becoming an Ancestor is the ultimate goal of all Dead Apostles. Even those Dead Apostles at the very bottom, who were changed into vampires by lowly Dead Apostles with no standing or reputation, dream of one day being able to gather enough power to become one of the 27 themselves.
    On the other hand, there also exist Ancestors who have no interest in such things at all. They are seekers, who eschew building a kingdom of their very own in favor of chasing after perfect immortality. There are many of these "Ancestors without a faction" among the Dead Apostles that used to be magi.

    死徒二十七祖【用語】
    最も古い二十七つの死徒。
    齢4000年を超える神代連盟(エルダータイトル)の祖、聖堂教会によって封印されている祖、人知れず秘境にて時間を数える祖、五百年単位で後継者に座を譲る血族のような祖もいる。
    それぞれが派閥を作り、同胞でありながら勢力争いをしている。娯楽という観念が摩耗している彼らにとっては数少ない存在意義なのだろう。
    希に祖は消滅するが、いずれ後継者が現れるので二十七の席は崩れない。その座はあらゆる死徒にとって最終目的と言える。末端の、名もない死徒によって吸血鬼化した最下層の死徒たちも、いずれ力をつけていつか祖に届く事を胸に抱く。
    反面、そういった盤上遊技に興味のない祖も存在する。自らの王国建築に関心はなく、完全な不老不死を求める探求者たちだ。魔術師から死徒になった祖はこういった“派閥を作らない二十七”となる事が多い。
    以下に、二十七祖の一部を紹介する。

    1/プライミッツ·マーダー
    詳細不明。霊長の殺人者。白い獣。アルトルージュの魔犬(ガイアの怪物)。

    2/the dark six

    3/朱い月のブリュンスタッド
    アルティミット·ワン。現在、空席。

    4/魔道元帥ゼルレッチ
    現存する五人の魔法使いの一人。宝石のゼルレッチとも呼ばれる。

    5/ORT(オルト)
    詳細不明。西暦以前に南米に落ちた突然変異種、らしい。攻性生物として次元違いの能力を誇る。

    6/リィゾ=バール·シュトラウト
    最古参の死徒。黒騎士シュトラウト。姫君(アルトルージュ)の護衛の一人。真性悪魔ニアダーク。

    7/腑海林アインナッシュ
    思考林。動き襲い捕食する森。

    8/フィナ=ヴラド·スヴェルテン
    白騎士ヴラド。姫君の護衛の一人。吸血伯爵。ストラトバリスの悪魔。

    9/アルトルージュ·ブリュンスタッド
    真祖と死徒の混血。死徒における吸血姫。黒。血と契約の支配者。

    10/ネロ·カオス
    混沌の群。魔術師が研究の果てに吸血種となったもの。

    11/スタンローブ、カルハイン
    捕食公爵。亡霊。別名、“街食うモノ”。……第一の亡霊(スタンティア)。

    13/?????

    最古参の死徒。白翼公。魔術師から吸血種になったもの。典型的な吸血鬼。死徒の王。二十七祖を代表する死徒で、形式上だけなら最大の発言力を持つ。

    20/メレム·ソロモン
    フォーデーモン·ザ·グレイトビースト。死徒でありながら埋葬機関の五位。王冠の通り名を持つ、シエルにとってイヤな先輩。

    21/スミレ
    水魔スミレ。ウオーター·ボトル。水中に棲む変種の死徒。流水を克服した変革吸血鬼。

    24/エル·ナハト

    Q: Who would be stronger if Servants fought the 27 Ancestors?

    Q: Who would be stronger if Servants fought the 27 Ancestors? Servant's also have superhuman battle ability, but the 27 Ancestors are also superhuman monsters.... I got the impression that ORT, Primate Murder, Altrouge Brunestud, and so on were obviously stronger than Servants.

    A: All I can is they're both powerful.... They're both beings that live in mystery, so the only thing that can be said is that it all depends on the situation the moment it comes done to ""having the means of killing the other guy somehow". Among those, Earth rules won't even apply to ORT in the first place and Primate Murder has the super advantage against primates so they're in a league of their own, I suppose. Speaking of which, for one Primate Murder, seven Guardians would be the appropriate amount.

    Q:サーヴァントと”吸血鬼の二十七祖”が戦った場合、どちらのほうが強いでしょうか?サーヴァントも人外の戦闘能力を持っていますが、二十七祖も人間離れした怪物ですし......。特にORTやプライミッツマーダー、アルトルージュ・ブリュンスタッドなどは、あからさまにサーヴァントよち強いような印象を受けました。

    A:どっちもどっち、としか・・・・・・。どちらも神秘に生きるものたちなので、"なんとかして殺す手段がある"時点で状況次第としか言えません。そんななか、 ORTはそもそも地球上でのルールが成立しないし、プライミッツマーダーは霊長に対して超有利なので別格でしょうか。ちなみに、プライミッツマーダー1匹に対して守護者七騎であたるのが妥当なところです。

    Q: About the power comparison between Arc and Servants, would the Arc being compared be the 30% one or the full one?

    Q: About the power comparison between Arc and Servants, would the Arc being compared be the 30% one or the full one?

    A: That would be the 30% Arc. It takes 7 Counter Guardians to control the Primate Murder and the Servants of the Grail War are based on these.

    Q:きのこ氏がファンブックで仰っていたアルクとサーヴァントの強さ比較ですが、この比較されているアルクって、30%程度しか力を出せていない状態と、全力状態のどちらでしょか?

    A:どっちかてーと30%のアルクです。もともと某プライミッツマーダーを御するには七騎の守護者が必要とされており、聖杯戦争の七騎のサーヴァントというのはこれになぞらえているらしいですよ、どうにも。
