It is "Xuanzang Sanzang as a kind of Buddha in the future" as prophesized in the final stage of "Journey to the West"; in other words, a Noble Phantasm derived from Candanaśrī, the Buddha of Glorious Sandalwood. The whole body of Xuanzang is wrapped in an aureole, and she temporarily attains a limited Buddha Mode. Although her offensive ability is not that much, she has high resilience by being able to repel most attacks, as well as repel mental interferences, push aside abnormal status attacks, and on top of that, apply a large recovery ability continuously around her own position. However, after using this, her entire Saint Graph will be destroyed and Xuanzang will disappear.

Major Appearance Works: Fate/Grand Order
Territory Creation: A+
Creates a “Workshop” that is an advantageous position to oneself as a magus. Because she possesses A Rank in this, it is possible to create a “Temple”, which is superior to a “Workshop”. (Strictly speaking, because the orientation of her school of magecraft is different, the position created by Xuanzang Sanzang is not designated as a “Workshop”. Also, it excels in timeliness in regards to its creation, so the practicability of creating a position immediately = a powerful Bounded Field.)

Xuanzang Sanzang’s way of being, becoming a Skill that shows the way a Tripitaka Master ought to be.

First Pronoun: atashi Second Pronoun: anata / anta / ** Third Pronoun: kare / kanojo / ano hito
A bundle of curiosity. She loves adventure! A figure brimming with the spirit of inquiry towards the unknown with an unwavering self-confidence. Although gracefully silent as a beautiful and faithful monk, her spirit overflowing for a desire to challenge herself decorates her facial expressions, and it truly does not conceal her nature of having an unyielding spirit. “As long as there are the chirpings of adorable songbirds that signals the morning’s rise, and the guidance, compassion and divine protection of the honorable Buddha, my journey will not be hindered by anybody and everybody!”
She is confident in herself————or so it looks like with an open glance of her. As a matter of fact, the reason she is confident is in regard to the sacred Buddhism religion, so she does not believe even a little about herself as a great person and the likes. She is also not self-aware of herself as a talented student. Although she remembers only a faint bit concerning her experience of being kicked out of the heavens for having deceived Master Tathagata in the spur of the moment in the heavens, the root of her is humble given that it is permeated with the depths of her memories.
She appears strict, but her nature is gentle. Especially to the weak, she is earnestly kind, and if a person is troubled, she will not forsake them. Because she is not thoughtless, she is extremely positive thinking oriented since she has a belief that is unshakeable, called “being rewarded for persevering three times the hardship.” Taking into consideration that she is never mistaken regarding the “Way of Man”, she often becomes lost during her travels. And because she gets lonely when she becomes lost, she cries before long.
○Motivation · Attitude to the Master
She recognizes the Master as a “disciple”. Frankly, she is strict to her companion that she deemed as a “disciple”. Although, given that she expects a growth from them that progresses down the tough path of a “Buddhist disciple” sufficient to the point that they will receive the same reward like other disciples, when it sometimes come to it, Miss Tsundere Teacher here will be gentle either way.
“I’m Xuanzang Sanzang! I came into this world so I can guide you to the honorable Buddha. Ummm, my Class is Caster!”
“You have the honorable Buddha’s divine protection. Everything’s certainly alright!”
“Evvverything is as Buddha has foreseen!”
“Good thing. Listen. I am not mistaken. When I make a mistake, it is because I am a moron who cannot be helped. But the honorable Buddha, he does not make mistakes. Because weak people, foolish people, people who changed their ways, they equally all guide us the way.”
“… Uuu, if only Goku was here, something like this…”
A Buddhist priest of the Tang Dynasty in 7th Century AD. Travelling through the Silk Road in search of the original Buddhist scriptures, it resulted in Xuanzang heading to India from Central Asia, before bringing back to China from there sutras amounting up to 657 items and becoming the founder of the Chinese Faxiang Buddhist sect.
She is also known as a key character in the Chinese novel “Journey to the West”. Receiving a command from Guanyin, this beautiful monk, while riding Bai Long (Yulong) – the son of the Dragon King of the West Sea that transformed into a white horse – had Qitiang Dasheng (Great Sage Equal to Heaven) Sun Wukong (Sun Xingzhe), Tianpeng Yuanshuai (Marshal Canopy) Zhu Bajie (Zhu Wuneng) and Juanlian Dajiang (Curtain-Lifting General) Sha Wujing (Sha Heshang) as her disciples, and she headed for India without ever losing heart in the face of the many monsters obstructing her path.
In “Journey to the West”, it is said that she lived in the heavens originally as Jin Chanzi (Golden Cicada), a disciple of Shakyamuni, but she fell into secular life because of a “certain incident” being the impetus. In other words, Xuanzang Sanzang is the reincarnation of Jin Chanzi. (It is because of this that the Demon King and the monsters are enticed by and tried to eat Xuanzang’s flesh again and again during the story of “Journey to the West”. If one eats Xuanzang, one gets to acquire a tremendous power associated with eternal youth.)
Xuanzang Sanzang had a Prophecy of Future Enlightenment and became the Buddha of Sandalwood Merit, so she is originally not a being that can respond to a person’s summoning, even with the one done by Chaldea’s system. Materializing and being successfully summoned at this time is only because of these exceptional circumstances. That alone, the phenomenon called the Incineration of the Human Order, must be perceived as an extremely serious threat.
She makes use of mainly bare-handed techniques that appears to be taught by her teacher in the heavens. Also, she uses the weapons and techniques associated with Sun Wukong and her disciples, although the person herself is not aware of this situation. Dr. Roman expressed jokingly that it may not be known that the fragmented thoughts of her disciples’ worries for their great teacher lurks within her Saint Graph.
The Enlightened One
There is always the Shakyamuni Buddha’s divine protection. Therefore, everything’s alright!
If you have time to come here, first add to your body a resourceful ability to find yourself a bride!
Touta (Tawara Touta)
It’s Touta… hey, wait! It’s not good if you are not training diligently!
What? Lies. You, you are not Prince Nezha!
I wonder if Heavenly King Li Jing is in good health.
Eh, well, Wukong is not here… I’m telling you the truth. By some chance, did you lose to Wukong? Ahaha, you never change. You’re cute.
You handle an excellent spear! I wonder if you can teach me your moves… eh? You want me to teach you? Gone?
You… hmmm. Good good, you look okay.

Concerning the feminization of Xuanzang Sanzang, there is a drama masterpiece where Xuanzang was performed by Miss Masako Natsume, so it was difficult producing a character image and it resulted in us arguing back and forth, making me think up of 3 or 4 draft plans. Although there are some divine articles as well as even more young Chinese characters, the finish is as you see, and it was also when I drew this that I at last understood why this pattern was chosen when playing the scenario. Although I aimed to draw a character that wanted to be preaching, I certainly did not know that she would be preaching physically. (Takeshi Okazaki)
