Ruler's True Name is Ying Zheng, also known as Qin Shi Huang (始皇帝, Shikōtei?), and dubbed the "Son of Heaven". The First Emperor of the Qin dynasty, noted as the most celebrated figure in Chinese history.
His true body is the form of Qin Shi Huang from the Chinese Lostbelt. This is the final conclusion of the Zhenren who freely used the authority gained from a system of centralized authoritarian rule and poured all of his energy into domestic affairs and technological development, and on top of that, also pursued the path of immortals to improve the limits of his lifespan as a living being.
In the Lostbelt, Ying Zheng has recovered the remains of an artificial human body made by the Xian, Taiyi Zhenren from the historic ruins of the Yin dynasty and by analyzing it, he acquired the technology to mechanize the flesh. Thus, the Qin Shi Huang who obtained his dearest wish, immortality, avoided an era of wars with his iron wall-like rule and thanks to this, even before the Western Renaissance, China has accomplished an Industrial Revolution. Due to the overwhelming gap in technology, he managed to conquer the whole world.
According to the Kuroka's, they would need to demonstrate a proper degree of respect if they were to summon Qin Shi Huang.
Qin pretends to have trouble pronouncing Koyanskaya's name, because he believes it would cause her discomfort if someone of his status showed her such respect. Names include, Kominski, Tayunskapon, Koyawhatever, and Yayanski.
The full assassination attempt is detailed in a short story about Jing Ke.
SIN: Land of Unified KnowledgeEdit
In Fate/strange Fake, Mr. and Mrs. Kuruoka obtain the Godfelling Crossbow, a Noble Phantasm and catalyst, to summon Qin Shi Huang as a Servant for the False Holy Grail War. They believe that he will be a Heroic Spirit that requires deference even from the summoner. He is never summoned due to their daughter obtaining Command Spells and her own Servant. Later, inside the dream world of Doomsday Come, a spirit related to the crossbow manifests. He helps Tsubaki and gives the crossbow to Sigma.
Within the Chinese Lostbelt, Qin Shi Huang has become effectively "immortal" through mechanization, storing his consciousness in technology. He is capable of observing everything within his Empire through the "Great Wall", a planetary defense system that floats around the entire Earth. Using it, he can also communicate with anyone by projecting magnetic beams so as to directly vibrate human skulls to create voice. Other metallic objects can also be used as a vibration medium.
His Noble Phantasm is The Domination Beginning: First Emperor (始皇帝, Shikōtei?). His Lostbelt iteration, summoned as a Ruler, possesses the skills Magic Resistance (B+), Burning of Books (書は焚すべし?) (A), Burying of Scholars (儒は坑すべし?) (A) and Eternal Emperor (永世帝位?) (A).
In his pursuit of improving his ability that was enough to rule the whole planet, he kept upgrading his mechanized emperor body, and as a result, Qin Shi Huang's body has become a castle that would swallow even the Epang Palace. That massive frame has reached a stage where it can float in the skies of Xianyang by utilizing anti-gravity. The inner structure of the mechanized emperor form is not that of a human body, but an imitation of the natural environment itself, assuming the aspect of an artificial garden that is a miniature mountain forest with rivers of mercury flowing through it. The body itself of the Epang Palace-type Qin Shi Huang is a microcosmos, and it operates based on the principles of fengshui sorcery which is in accordance with how nature truly moves.
The majestic form of the Emperor's gargantuan frame that the dominion's masses have an audience with no regard for day or night, is surely an appropriate embodiment of observation and regulation. With the calculation ability that equals that of a god, the Emperor is the one who decides the life expectancy of his subjects.
Afterwards, he got the chance to analyze the sample of a living female immortal, but despite making it possible to maintain a humanoid vessel with the technique of a Shijie xian, Qin Shi Huang already had the form of a super dreadnought-class arithmetic unit that was fitting for the administrator who ruled the world. The only reason a man like that took on the humanoid form that he cultivated once again, was to settle the single decisive battle that he agreed to. One could call the body that was cultivated as the crystallization of the cyber immortal techniques that have evolved to their utmost limits of "Zhenren Qin Shi Huang", the ultimate lifeform with the ability to acquire the utmost balance a human body could reach. As the sole absolute is his eternal immortality, because reproduction is unnecessary, he's transcended gender as well. This form of an artificial Xian could be called the ultimate goal of the Qin Empire's technology that's been cultivated for more than 2000 years.
Creation and ConceptionEdit
« On a side note, when I first received the offer to draw Qin I had imagined he would be a man with an intelligent sharp eyed look as illustrated below based on his previous descriptions, however the design order was a "fully-naked androgynous fantastical beauty", so this was rejected within an hour. »
Before receiving the exact order of how Qin would appear, the artist, Toh Azuma, thought up a design based on previous descriptions, but that was declined after receiving the actual order. She posted an illustration of that design on Twitter.
Qin was originally going to appear in the role of the spirit that appears from the Godfelling Crossbow in Fate/strange Fake, planned with the series' original release five years prior. Due to the character appearing in Fate/Grand Order, Narita developed a new character to appear, commenting that it worked out because the new character was fun to write.

 Fate/Grand Order - Jing Ke (Assassin) Profile [T]
Jing Ke - Assassin
Illustrator and Voice actor
Illustrator: Keitarou Takahashi
Voice Actor: Atsuko Tanaka
Noble Phantasm: B
Presence Concealment: B
Only For Killing: Nonreturnable Dagger
Type: Anti-Unit Noble Phantasm
---ten steps remaining, a sure kill.
Jing Ke was an assassin that plotted the assassination of the First Emperor, and fell one step short of accomplishing it.
An individual who could have repainted the history of China, if it weren't for external hindrance.
Level 1 Bond
Source: Historical fact
Alignment: Chaotic Good Gender: Female
Transmitted in history as a man.
Level 2 Bond
Jing Ke not only made a living out of assassinations, but also was a hedonist individual who loved reading, swordsmanship, chats with her wise friend and - more than anything - alcohol. Upon receiving a commission from Crown Prince Dan, from the State of Yan, to assassinate the First Emperor, Jing Ke cheerfully accepted and began planning how to assassinate the watchful Emperor.
Level 3 Bond
Having a present to offer the First Emperor, obtaining a knife dipped in poison meant for assassinations, but just before the time for implementing the plan came, Prince Dan began to doubt whatever Jing Ke - who was awaiting for a friend that would throw his life away as an assistant in the assassination - "had not lost her nerve".
Level 4 Bond
Being under suspicion, Jing Ke had no choice but to depart to Qin with a man that the Crown Prince had recommended as her assistant. However, during the assassination attempt, the man who was supposed to support her became unable to move out of fear and Jing Ke had to pursuit the assassination all alone; but maybe due to the Emperor's good luck, she failed to catch him by a narrow margin.
Level 5 Bond
It has been said that, having made her mind, Jing Ke was killed while scorning the First Emperor. Despite being an assassin, Jing Ke returned to dust without being able to accomplish her kill. Still, Jing Ke - who cheerfully accepted the request even while knowing she wouldn't return alive - was an individual who could be described as the world's chivalry.
"Wind blow, river freeze.
The hero fords, never returns!"
--a poem by Jing Ke in the occasion of her parting
