Rider of the Resistance (レジスタンスのライダー, Rejisutansu no Raidā?) is a Rider-class Servant summoned by Ritsuka Fujimaru in the Grand Orders of Fate/Grand Order.



Rider's True Name is Christopher Columbus (クリストファー・コロンブス, Kurisutofā Koronbusu?), the first Christian Caucasian to reach the waters of America during the Age of Exploration.[1]

It was around the year of 1480 that he got the idea and belief of a westward maritime course. However, it was difficult to find the funds and patrons for the voyage, and it was only in 1492 that he managed to actually depart. In 1492, Columbus finally crossed the Atlantic Ocean with three flagships; the Santa Maria, La Niña, and La Pinta. On the verge of a rebellion by insecure sailors, they reached the waters of America and discovered the San Salvador Island.[1]

The first thing Columbus, who had finally reached his destination, did was plunder the valuable things from the native people there and take them as slaves. There's nothing stopping him anymore now that he had discovered a New World. A second voyage also took place soon after, and new islands were found one after another. Of course, the slaughter, rape, and plundering of the natives by the Spaniards led by Columbus didn't stop—[1]



A man at the prime of his life who has experienced sweetness and bitterness. He talks of not giving up things that one considers important, and strikes the shoulders of comrades who have been disheartened to encourage them. From that face, composure has never been lost. That fearless smile has never faded. —He knows. That if you continue pressing on, you will certainly reach the destination of your desire.[1]
