Rottweil Berzinsky (ロットウェル・ペルジンスキー, Rottoweru Perujinsukī?), also known Silver Lizard (銀蜥蜴シルバーリザード, Gin TokageShirubā Rizādo?), is the Master of Archer of Red of the Red Faction in the Great Holy Grail War of Fate/Apocrypha.[1] Along with Cabik Pentel, Deimlet Pentel, Jean Rum, and Feend vor Sembren, he is entranced by Assassin of Red and Shirou Kotomine before even meeting his Servant, later coerced into giving up his Command Spells.



Rottweil is a freelance magus. Just like the other Red Masters such as Jean Rum and the Pentel brothers, he has fought both together and against Kairi Sisigou at various times in the past.[2][3]

He once participated in a subspecies Holy Grail War that has a maximum of five servants. The organizer declared that this subspecies Holy Grail War objective was to gather Magical Energy. His client hired him to take part in the summoning ritual and killing their respective servant. Rottweil was irritated by this task, to which he killed his client and the other participant. However the gathered Magical Energy ran wild and caused a large explosion to which he barely survived. He had to shed his skin twice to recover.[4]


Apart from his face, most of his body is covered in silver scales.[2] It seems that he also has the organs of a lizard as well.


He is obsessed with animals, particularly lizards.[2] He likes dark and moist places.[4]

Rottweil also seems to have a very perfidious nature where, in a subspecies Holy Grail War, he killed both his client and his confederates because of how the nature of the war "irritated him," along with the fact that it wasn't written in the job's contract that he couldn't kill his client.[4]



He and the other Red Faction Masters with the exception of Kairi, gathered in Sighisoara. They discussed the Greater Holy Grail War situation, Feend vor Sembren questioned Rottweil's involvement in the subspecies Holy Grail War. Feend reminds Rottweil about their contract and attacking allies are prohibited. Shirou Kotomine enters the room and provided the place of summoning ritual.[4] Rottweil was easily entranced by Semiramis's poison upon her arrival.[2]

Other appearancesEdit

Roland Berzinsky (ローランド・ペルジンスキー, Rōrando Perujinsukī?, Roland Perjinski) is a relative of his and was mentioned in Fate/strange fake. He was one of the disciples of Lord El-Melloi II and has reached either the ranks of "Brand" and "Pride".[5]


He seems to be skilled in body modification. Rottweil's body appears to be very durable as he was able to survive a large explosion from a defective Holy Grail.[4]
