Show/Hide Story Chapter

Woman
 Hah... Hah... Hah...
Woman
 What is this fog?
 My body...is losing...more and more...strength
Woman
 Not only that...
Woman
 All this time...
 Something's been...chasing me all this time!
???
 —I'm sorry.
Woman
 Huh? Wh-When did you...get in front...of me?
 O-Oh...
Woman
 ...N-No... Stay away...
Woman
 Oooh, no, don't come near me... I don't know
 you... What are you... WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU!
???
 I'm sorry, Mom.
 I'm sorry.
???
 But I want to go home...
 I want to go home, go home, go home, go home, so...
???
 We... We really, really...want to go home, okay?
Woman
 Eek!
 No, please stop— Stop, stop, stop, stop!
Woman
 What's that thing you're holding!? Stop it...
 Please... Just don't come...near me!
???
 I'm sorry.
Mash
 Good morning, Senpai.
 ...You're looking quite pale today.
Mash
 You couldn't sleep at all? That's no good,
 you must get plenty of rest while you're in Chaldea.
Mash
 Rest is also an important part of our mission.
 Like I told vou before. we are—

  1. ...  2. I had a scary dream.
  Select: ...

Mash
 Senpai?
Mash
 Perhaps...
 You had...a dream?
  Select: I had a scary dream.
Mash
 ...So you did have a dream.

Mash
 What kind of dream was it?
 It's just a guess, but...could it be my... Um...

  1. The dream was like a horror movie.  2. I don't really remember.
  Select: The dream was like a horror movie.

  Select: I don't really remember.


Mash
 I see. That's good to hear...
Mash
 No. No, it's nothing. The meeting's about to start,
 so let's go to the Control Room.
Mash
 You've had breakfast already, right?
 Then let's go, the Doctor is waiting.
Dr. Roman
 Good morning, everybody.
 Good timing. We just finished prepping.
Dr. Roman
 Let's start with the analysis of information from last
 time.
Mash
 Observing the era of King Solomon, where a summoning
 spell called the 72 Demon Gods was used, right?
Dr. Roman
 That's right. Let me start with the result...
 There was nothing wrong with King Solomon's era.
Dr. Roman
 Singularities could not be observed around the 10th
 century BC. Basically what that means is...
Da Vinci
 Unfortunately, as Romani says, those who called
 themselves the 72 Demon Gods had nothing to do with
 King Solomon.

  1. Why is that?  2. Good morning, Da Vinci
  Select: Why is that?
Da Vinci
 Oh, how do I put it... Think of it like a mystery novel,
 one where the suspect's alibi stands.
  Select: Good morning, Da Vinci
Da Vinci
 Hey, good morning! Someone that can actually greet
 people! (Your Name), you're a fine Master!

Dr. Roman
 If King Solomon had used the 72 Demon Gods,
 we definitely would have detected it.
Dr. Roman
 Or at least seen signs that he released his 72 Demon
 Gods toward the future from 10th Century B.C.
Dr. Roman
 But there was nothing unusual during King Solomon's
 time. Which means his era remains part of correct human
 history.
Dr. Roman
 Therefore—
Da Vinci
 Lev Lainur and those calling themselves Demon Gods
 appeared from a completely different era.
Da Vinci
 So, King Solomon has nothing to do with them.
 Well, of course—
Mash
 ...That's not the case if King Solomon had been
 serving someone else as a Servant, right?
Da Vinci
 Correct. Like (Your Name),
 one can simply use Solomon as a familiar in his own era.
Da Vinci
 That way, one could also control the "72 Demon Gods."
Dr. Roman
 Sigh. Using the 72 Demon Gods as familiars...
 But that's assuming those things really existed.
Dr. Roman
 Besides, I don't think King Solomon is
 the kind of person that would aid such evil.

  1. Even if he was so in life...  2. Servants obey their Masters...
  Select: Even if he was so in life...

  Select: Servants obey their Masters...


Mash
 Forgive me, Doctor.
 But it's a Servant's nature to obey their Master.
Mash
 As long as it's the Master's command, then King
 Solomon would have no choice but to obey, right?
Dr. Roman
 Such a villain couldn't summon Solomon.
 It's not like the Holy Grail War in Fuyuki.
Dr. Roman
 Chaldea‘s Summoning System comes into effect only if
 the Master and Heroic Spirit both agree to it.
Da Vinci
 Oh, you do have a point.
 I came to Chaldea because I agreed to.
Da Vinci
 The director back then was a fine mage.
 I agreed to the contract because I could trust them.
Da Vinci
 I told you before, didn't I? I'm Chaldea's third
 successful summon. It's definitely worth noting!

  1. So you're Servant No. 3?  2. Who was the first?
  Select: So you're Servant No. 3?

  Select: Who was the first?


Da Vinci
 No. 2 is right in front of you. It's Mash.
 As for No. 1. no one knows at this point.
Da Vinci
 No. 1 and No. 2 are treated as confidential matters.
 Only the previous director knew the details.
Mash
 Senpai. The Heroic Spirit who rescued me is No. 2.
 ...Not that I know his True Name or skills.
Fou
 Fou...
Dr. Roman
 Director Marie didn't even know about No. 1, either.
 The previous director kept all of No. 1 ’s data under
 wraps.
Dr. Roman
 ...Now that I think about it, perhaps the previous
 director's death wasn't an accident, but a murder.
Dr. Roman
 It's likely that Lev disliked the successful No. 1—
 No, the Heroic Spirit Summoning System itself, so much
 so that he killed the previous director.
Da Vinci
 Oh, but I think No. 1 ended in failure. Since even
 Mash's Heroic Spirit No. 2 ended as an incomplete
 summon.
Da Vinci
 For Chaldea, completely successful
 Heroic Spirit summons started with me, No. 3.
Da Vinci
 Also, No. 1's existence itself is suspicious.
 I think No. 1 may have been summoned by accident.
Da Vinci
 That's because Fate, the Heroic Spirit Summoning
 System's foundation, was at long last proven with No.
 2's help and—
Dr. Roman
 Ahem! Ms. Leonardo, we're going to start the Rayshift
 soon, so would you mind getting it ready?
Da Vinci
 Whoops, a slip of my tongue.
 Well, that's it for me♪
Dr. Roman
 ...Now, in any case, for the remaining four Singularities...
 It's possible the mastermind lurks in one of these eras.
Dr. Roman
 After all, there are no abnormalities in any other era.
 If we crush each Singularity, we'll find the culprit.
Dr. Roman
 Now let me explain the details of our Order this time.
 The Fourth Singularity is in the 19th century—
Dr. Roman
 Of the seven, it's the Singularity closest to modern times.
 But no need to be surprised.
Dr. Roman
 This is a time when civilizations rise and flourish.
 In this era, mankind makes huge strides.
Dr. Roman
 —ln other words, the Industrial Revolution!
 It's a definitive turning point in mankind's history.
Dr. Roman
 Even from the standpoint of a consumer society,
 this is when mankind makes a huge leap towards modern
 times.
Dr. Roman
 Your specific destination
 will be the dazzling, lavish British Empire.
Dr. Roman
 Surprisingly, it's specific to the capital, London.
 This differs from the widespread approach of the other
 Singularities.
Dr. Roman
 Maybe this time, you won't have to walk yourselves to
 death. After all, there are carriages and trains.
Dr. Roman
 That is, of course, if you can manage to use them.
 Since some abnormalities have been detected...
Dr. Roman
 Soon, the Singularity that is 19th century London will be
 incinerated. It will vanish. You must stop it.
Dr. Roman
 Find the Holy Grail,
 and correct the Fourth Singularity.
Mash
 Understood.
 So we'll be working inside the city this time.
Dr. Roman
 Yes, that's right.
 Lucky you! London, the city of fog...
Dr. Roman
 If only I could go with you all.
 Please get Sherlock Holmes‘s autograph if you see him.
Mash
 Doctor.
 This isn't a vacation.
Dr. Roman
 R-Right.
Mash
 Oh, one more thing.
 Sherlock Holmes is a fictional character.
Mash
 I'm guessing it will be hard to get his autograph.
 I'm sorry, but please give up.
Dr. Roman
 Right...
 Wait, Mash, you too?
Mash
 Excuse me?
Dr. Roman
 Are you a Holmes fan, too? Isn't he the best?
 The world's best detective, the little gray cells!
Mash
 That's Hercule Poirot.
 He appears in books written by Agatha Christie.
Dr. Roman
 Oh...
 Th-That's right. Okay. Let's get back on track.
Dr. Roman
 All right, are you ready? The world hasn't
 been incinerated yet, so go reclaim our future!

  1. Mission...start!  2. Let's be cautious this time.
  Select: Mission...start!

  Select: Let's be cautious this time.


Mash
 Yes, Senpai.
Announcement A
Unsummon Program. start.
Spiritron Conversion, start.
Announcement A
Rayshift starting in 3. 2, 1.
Announcement A
All procedures cleared.
Grand Order, commencing operation.

Chapter 1

Show/Hide Story Chapter


Mash
 Rayshift successful. ...It seems we can't
 see very well in our current conditions.
Mash
 Fog?
 No, could it be smoke? It's extremely dense...
Mash
 In the sky...
 I can see the same "Circle of Light" as before. But
Mash
 ...with all this fog and pollution,
 it's obscured—
Dr. Roman
 Fog and smoke engulfing the sky?
 That's fairly common for the Industrial Revolution...
Dr. Roman
 ...but this doesn't look like your typical fog or smoke.
 I'm picking up an abnormal amount of magical energy
 readings.
Dr. Roman
 It's dense. Very dense. Really dense.
 No, this may be a little too dense!
Dr. Roman
 It's like the atmosphere is saturated with magical energy!
Dr. Roman
 It's poisonous to life-forms, this fog...
 Mash, (Your Name), how are you feeling?
Mash
 There's nothing wrong with me.
 Probably because I'm a Demi-Servant.
Mash
 How about you, Senpai?
 You don't seem...any different than usual.

  1. Same as always.
  Select: Same as always.


Mash
 Good to hear.
 But try not to enter that dense fog if you can.
Dr. Roman
 (Your Name) is okay... Huh.
 Indeed, there are no significant vital sign changes
Dr. Roman
 I'm a bit surprised.
 I have the analysis result of that fog...
Dr. Roman
 I'm positive it's harmful to organisms. It would threaten
 a normal human's life if they breathed it.
Dr. Roman
 Mages, monsters, Servants, and Phantasmals have
 innate magic resistance, so for them it's a different
 story...
Dr. Roman
 So of course Mash is fine.
 But how is (Your Name) all right...
Dr. Roman
 Hmm... I wonder.
 Maybe it's a poison-resistance skill?
Mash
 Really?
Dr. Roman
 It could be part of Mash's benefits, or rather,
 the benefits of the Heroic Spirit Mash fused with.
Dr. Roman
 Maybe the Servant that fused with Mash has
 high poison resistance, or a strong blessing skill..
Dr. Roman
 ...and its protection extends to the Master.
 That could be why (Your Name) is safe.
Mash
 ...l'm happy to be of use to Senpai,
 but it seems strange to call it a "skill."
Dr. Roman
 Well, (Your Name) is human, after all.
 We'll call it "Poison Resistance Skill (Temporary),“ then
Mash
 I-I see... "Temporary," is it...
Dr. Roman
 For now. London, has turned into a city of death
 enveloped by a magical fog.
Dr. Roman
 How does it look around there?
 Do you see any victims?
Mash
 No, Doctor.
 It's completely deserted.
Mash
 It's currently 2:00 p.m., but there's not
 a single carriage or even a pedestrian in sight.
Mash
 I don't see any victims.
 There's just nobody here.
Mash
 It's like an abandoned city...
Mash
 Also, as far as we can see from the street, all the
 doors and windows of the buildings are shut tight
Dr. Roman
 After people started falling victim to the fog,
 the survivors must have taken refuge indoors...
Dr. Roman
 I've also detected
 multiple life readings in the surrounding buildings.
Dr. Roman
 They're likely survivors. No doubt they're
 in trouble being trapped indoors.

  1. We need to solve this problem at once.  2. Let's do what we can.
  Select: We need to solve this problem at once.

  Select: Let's do what we can.


Mash
 ...Yes.
 You're right, Senpai.
Mash
 If we obtain and destroy the Holy Grail, the existence
 of this abnormal London will be corrected too.
Mash
 I'm sure that applies to all the residents who lost
 their lives because of this fog...
Mash
 ...and those who are indoors, taking shelter from the fog
 Everyone, basically.
Mash
 If Senpai and I can bring things under control here,
 all phenomena related to the magical fog should
 disappear.
Mash
 It'll be as if there were no damage or harm at all
 So, um... You see, what I'm trying to say is...
Dr. Roman
 Mash is trying to say:
 "Senpai is a nice person." Right?
Mash
 ...
 ...
Dr. Roman
 Huh? Um, should I have not said that?
 Wait, did I say something wrong?
Dr. Roman
 —Wait a minute. Vital reaction detected.
???
 ...Who the hell are you guys?
Mash
 Ah... Umm, w-we're, uh—
???
 You're breathing in a place with that dense fog without
 croaking.
 You obviously aren't ordinary humans.
???
 So, which is it?
 Friend, or foe?
Mash
 (I could ask the same question...
 Doctor, is she human? Or maybe...)
Dr. Roman
 (l see, I'm also wondering the same! There's too much
 magical energy in the area. I can't get a clear reading.)
Dr. Roman
 (But look at that armor. She's definitely not a
 typical London citizen.)
Dr. Roman
 (I thought things would be easier
 since we're limited to a city.)
Dr. Roman
 (This has gotten quite troublesome!
 We have no clue who or what she is!)
Dr. Roman
 (An ordinary person who happens to have magical
 resistance? A mage? Or, maybe a Servant—)
Dr. Roman
 I can't tell at all! What do I do!?
 Argh, I'm so disorientated here!
Dr. Roman
 (I've never seen this kind of fog before...
 Ah, help me, Magi★Mari!
Dr. Roman
 London's fog is worse than rumored.
 What am I supposed to do?"...There.)
Mash
 (Calm down, Doctor. The situation won t
 improve by consulting internet idols!)
???
 What are you sneaking around for?
 If you're not going to attack, well, whatever
???
 I have nothing to do here.
 Sorry to bother you.
???
 The fog is dense around here.
 You'd better move if you value your life.

  1. Thanks for the warning.  2. We'll do that.
  Select: Thanks for the warning.

  Select: We'll do that.


???
 Hmm?
 Yeah. Well, see you.
Mash
 Oh—
Mash
 She's gone... The alley to the north...
 Right into the dense fog, all alone, confident
Dr. Roman
 Wait, she left during our huddle?
 She's so impatient. I wonder if she's a London girl.
Mash
 That was a "huddle?"
Dr. Roman
 It sounded like she knew what was going on. She
 probably knows more than us about the current situation
 in London.

  1. Let's follow her.  2. Gathering data is important.
  Select: Let's follow her.

  Select: Gathering data is important.


Mash
 Yes, Senpai.
 Let's go after her.
Dr. Roman
 I was just about to say that.
 But then she just had to go and disappear on me.
Mash
 Doctor... Doctor Roman.
Dr. Roman
 Yes, sorry.
 All right, time to get moving. I'll keep careful watch!
Mash
 ...What is that? I can hear something.
Dr. Roman
 No vital reactions, but I detect multiple moving bodies!
 The fog still obscures magical readings, so I can't get any!
Mash
 The sound is approaching. It's close.
 Master!
Dr. Roman
 Multiple targets closing in at high speed. Assume
 they're hostile. Break through before you're surrounded!
Dr. Roman
 Good judgment will be even more important here—
 (Your Name), be careful!
Mash
 Preparing for battle.
 Master, your orders!
--AFTER BATTLE--
Mash
 —We made it through. Somehow we
 were able to move without being surrounded.
Dr. Roman
 Who knew something like that would be lurking in the
 fog? No wonder nobody's emerged from any buildings
Dr. Roman
 Since no doors or windows seem to be kicked in,
 that must mean they don't break into houses, right?
Dr. Roman
 Strange.
 They're really quite strange.
Mash
 Yes. What bizarre enemies...
 No, I don't think they were living creatures.
Mash
 We'll call them enemy bodies for now.
 They're likely automata animated by magecraft
Mash
 The structure of their remains seems familiar.
 Some parts are machinery from this era, too.
Dr. Roman
 I-I see...
Dr. Roman
 I'm sorry. I won't be able to give you any advance
 warning. All of my magical detection readings are in a
 state of chaos.
Dr. Roman
 I only have motion detection at best.
 Hmm, this is quite concerning.
Mash
 I feel the same.
 It's just like the city itself...
Mash
 Fog, smoke.
 It's like there's a layer of mist around everything...
Dr. Roman
 At any rate, we have to act more cautiously than before
 All right, let's go after that girl.
Mash
 Yes... Senpai, let's go.

Chapter 2

Show/Hide Story Chapter


Dr. Roman
 Detecting multiple entities!
 Here they come! They're around the corner!
Mash
 ...It's the same sound as before. Master!

  1. Let's drive them away!
  Select: Let's drive them away!


Mash
 Yes!

BATTLE

Mash
 Hmm. It's like...
 a presence... What is this feeling?
Dr. Roman
 The girl from earlier? ls she nearby?
 London girls are quite quick on their feet, aren't they.
Mash
 No, there are multiple readings.
 But they're silent... They're not puppets?
Dr. Roman
 Yeah, they might be different. They move differently.
 But this feeling... They're definitely enemies. Here they come!

BATTLE

Mash
 All enemies defeated.
 Good work, Senpai.
Mash
 They don't seem to be puppets. But... I can't say
 for sure if they are humans, either.
Mash
 I believe these enemies...
 are a kind of... Well, homunculus.

  1. Homunculus?  2. A kind of human created by magecraft, right?
  Select: Homunculus?

  Select: A kind of human created by magecraft, right?


Mash
 Yes. An artificial human created with magecraft.

  1. Mash?  2. Were you hurt?
  Select: Mash?

  Select: Were you hurt?


Mash
 No... I'm fine, Senpai, thank you. There's no need to worry.
 I carefully monitor my physical condition.
Mash
 I'm sorry. I'm probably a little on edge
 because of the unusual environment we're in.
Mash
 I need to learn how to adapt to any situation.
 I'm your Demi-Servant, after all.

  1. I'm counting on you!
  Select: I'm counting on you!


Mash
 ...Yes.

FADE OUT

Dr. Roman
 —Okay. I'm starting to get the hang of this.
Mash
 Doctor?
 Have you detected anything?
Dr. Roman
 Yeah. It could be because they're mechanical,
 but I'm positive they're hostile. Multiple enemies
 approaching!
Mash
 Roger.
 Master, prepare for battle. Waiting for orders!

BATTLE

Mash
 All enemies destroyed.
 There are none left as far as I can see.
Dr. Roman
 l can't detect anything else from here either.
 Okay, continue on ahead... Wait, hold on.
Dr. Roman
 I've detected a single, large unit.
 Easy to make out. It's too large to be human!
Dr. Roman
 I doubt it s a large vehicle.
 Mash, do you sense anything?
Mash
 ...l can hear machinery operating. It's large!
Dr. Roman
 It would have been a rather romantic story if Britain's
 secret service had arranged for a special vehicle...
Dr. Roman
 ...or if this era's Mage's Association had sent a
 mechanical golem to save the citizens of London.
Dr. Roman
 I doubt that's the case here! It's clearly an enemy,
 and it's approaching you!
Mash
 Master, be on your guard.

  1. Let's fight cautiously.  2. Mash, we just have to take our chances!
  Select: Let's fight cautiously.

  Select: Mash, we just have to take our chances!


Mash
 ...Yes!
Dr. Roman
 Enemy contact now!

BATTLE

Mash
 ...All enemy movements have ceased.
Mash
 It was powerful... But what was it, exactly?
 A golem? A mechanical puppet?

  1. A robot...  2. It was so cool!
  Select: A robot...
Mash
 It looks...that way...
 l guess you could see it that way, yes...
  Select: It was so cool!
Mash
 Cool? It looked like a walking tin can to me... Well,
 I guess the definition of cool is subjective...

Dr. Roman
 It's problematic that I can't detect any magical energy
 Mash, are there any enemies remaining?
Dr. Roman
 If any enemy parts are exposed, send me some images
 I'll analyze them when I have the time.
Mash
 Understood.
 I'll send the visual data after filming.
Mash
 Hmm...
Mash
 It's bizarre... This mechanical armor is corroding
 in some places.
Mash
 It seems fine for the most part, but areas that
 seem to be made of metal have...corroded...
Dr. Roman
 Hmm, did we use any acid attacks in the last battle?
 Wait, do we have any Servants of that sort?
Mash
 During the Industrial Revolution in London, massive
 amounts of smoke emitted from steam engines was a big social problem.
Mash
 The sulfurous gases in the smoke got caught in the cold
 fog, retaining and concentrating into a fog of sulfuric acid...
Mash
 ...Hmm.
Dr. Roman
 Huh? ls something the matter, Mash?
Mash
 No. Please wait...
 "Something like inhaling sulfuric acid?" Yes, that's it
Mash
 Some records from before... Should be...
Mash
 Yes. That's right. I mean, this era—

  1. Mash, behind you!  2. Hey, who are you!
  Select: Mash, behind you!

  Select: Hey, who are you!


Mash
 !?
Mash
 ...Ah!
Mash
 I'm under attack!
 An ambush? I didn't sense anything!
???
 ...Hey, what are you, exactly? A human?
 Or a mage?
???
 You're moving unhindered within the magical fog,
 and you seem just fine within "our fog" as well.
???
 I guess you're just like us.
Mash
 So you're a Servant. You're supposed to be a
 human from this era, though...
Mash
 ——Jack the Ripper.
Mash
 An infamous serial killer who not only killed many
 women in London at the end of the 19th century, but
 who also dismembered them...
Mash
 ...and directly challenged Scotland Yard. The symbol of
 terror that swept across England, no, all of Europe, at
 the time.
Jack
 You know about us?
 Hmm, that pleases me... How very nice... In that case...
Jack
 You're aware, then, of what we'll do to you?
 Oh, I'm so very, very happy!
Jack
 I'm so...HAPPY!
Mash
 She's coming at us!
 Master, your orders!

BATTLE

Dr. Roman
 The motion response is gone.
 Either they retreated or are hiding within the fog.
Mash
 ...Right. That was a dangerous, hostile Servant.
Dr. Roman
 From the area analysis I did during the battle, a part of
 this fog is likely from the Noble Phantasm of that Servant.
Dr. Roman
 But the fog of magical energy that covers London
 is something else entirely.
Dr. Roman
 In short, it was a combination of the two fogs.
 We've got a really difficult opponent on our hands...
Dr. Roman
 The fog contains such a high density of sulfuric acid
 that there's no way this is a normal phenomenon.
Dr. Roman
 Also... And this is the most troubling aspect, Mash...
Mash
 I know. My memory seems to have been altered.
 We just fought...and yet...
Mash
 ...the memory of my opponent is a blur.
Mash
 I only remember one thing.
 It was a Servant.
Mash
 The form, the name, and...
 There's some other memory related to it, but...
Dr. Roman
 Hmm. Seems like the effect can transcend eras
 My memory is kind of vague, too.
Dr. Roman
 At this rate, the observation record may be distorted,
 too. What a strange Noble Phantasm it is...
 Speaking of bizarre—
 That s right. Doctor, we, um...

  1. We were filming...  2. What about the giant robot from earlier?
  Select: We were filming...

  Select: What about the giant robot from earlier?


Mash
 Ah! That's right. We were filming.
 Senpai, I'm sorry... Thank you.
Mash
 It seems the effect on your memory is weak, Senpai.
 Lucky for us!
Dr. Roman
 That's right! Yup. Right. I received it.
 I received image data for a mysterious robot.
Dr. Roman
 I m going to proceed in analyzing these images.
 I wonder what it is?
Dr. Roman
 It doesn't look like a golem that runs on magical energy
 but it also doesn't look like a complete machine...
Mash
 Doctor, are you versed in mechanical engineering?
Dr. Roman
 I'm no expert, but I am a member of Chaldea.
 Albeit as medical staff.
Dr. Roman
 Hmm, this is... Don't tell me we've just come
 across some lost steam engine technology.
???
 Oh, that—?
 It's just a clump of steel, right?
 We call it...
???
 —Helter Skelter.
Mash
 You are—
???
 I've been watching you. You destroyed one of them,
 which means you're probably not my enemy.
???
 Besides, you fought well, not bad. Considering you
 probably have no idea about the circumstances.
???
 Very nice.
 I rather like fools like that.

  1. Can I ask you a question?  2. Who are you calling a fool!?
  Select: Can I ask you a question?

  Select: Who are you calling a fool!?


???
 Say what?
Mash
 You're riqht.
 I'm sure we're not your enemy.
Mash
 Please... Can you give us some information.
 Will you speak with us?
Mash
 What's happening in this foggy city?
???
 Very well.
 I'll talk to you.
???
 But first, let me get one thing straight.
 You're a Demi-Servant, aren't you?
Mash
 ...Yes. My name is Mash Kyrielight.
 And I am a Demi-Servant.
???
 And who are you?

  1. I'm (Your Name).
  Select: I'm (Your Name).


???
 Mash Kyrielight and (Your Name), huh?
 ...l suppose that's all right. It has nothing to do with me
???
 I am Mordred. A Heroic Spirit.
 And—
Mordred
 I'm a Knight of the Round Table, here to face the perils
 of Londinium, a city in Father's beloved Britain.

Chapter 3

Show/Hide Story Chapter

???
 ..Oh boy, Saber. You always reveal your
 True Name to strangers right away.
???
 We talked about this.
 If you're introducing yourself, just state your class.
???
 Do you understand?
 Disclosing your True Name is like revealing your abilities.
???
 That's the reason we conceal
 our True Names during normal Holy Grail Wars.
???
 And yet you give out your
 True Name at the drop of a hat...
Mordred
 Oh, what's the difference? This is no longer
 the "Holy Grail War" that you spoke of.
Mordred
 It's not the one with 7 Heroic Spirits, nor the one with
 14. On top of that, no Masters. Anyway, do you have any
 ciders? I am thirsty.
???
 Wait, that's my favorite sofa...
 Ah well. Yes, I already got your ciders chilled and ready.
Mordred
 Right, we do have a refrigerator before it became widely
 used. Being a scholar sure is useful.
???
 Though I have chemicals that need to be stored at low
 temperatures. It's necessary for scholars.
Mordred
 Sure, sure.
Mordred
 (...Gulp, gulp gulp) Whew! That's the stuff.
 It really hits the spot coming out of that demonic fog!
Mordred
 Mmm——
Mordred
 What are you two doing?
 Don't just stand there. Find a place to sit.
Mordred
 My home is your home.
 This is my temporary base.
Mash
 Ah, right...
 Senpai, what should we do? Is it all right to sit?

  1. I suppose...  2. You with the glasses... Can I ask you something?
  Select: I suppose...

  Select: You with the glasses... Can I ask you something?


???
 ...Haha. Well, all right, I don't mind.
 If Saber trusts you, I'm sure we're on the same side.
???
 I haven't introduced myself yet.
 I am Henry Jekyll.
Jekyll
 I work in London as a scholar—— A scientist.
 Though not officially a mage, I am familiar with elixirs.
Jekyll
 One day, all of a sudden,
 London was blanketed by this fog. It was a nightmare.
Jekyll
 I was able to figure out that the fog contained
 magical energy, but was at a loss about what to do.
Mordred
 That's when we met and started working together.
Mordred
 He isn't very reliable as a mage,
 but comes in handy in his own way.
Mordred
 I provide the muscle.
 He investigates and analyzes.
Jekyll
 Exactly.
Mash
 Um--
 Excuse me. Mr. Henry Jekyll?
Mash
 That name, um...
Dr. Roman
 It's the same name as a character in a novel.
 Coincidence? Or perhaps he was the model for that
 character?
Dr. Roman
 Mash, can you detect the presence of a Servant?
 I can't. You're inside, but you might as well be outside.
Mash
 I can't either, Doctor.
 I can't tell if this presence is human or not.
Jekyll
 I assure you, I am a genuine human.
 If it's a Servant you want, they're outside, investigating.
Jekyll
 And what were you talking about?
 A novel?
Mash
 ...Yes. A book that was published a little before this era.
 The main character shares your name.
Jekyll
 I don't recall that.
 Strange, as I do read my share of novels...
Jekyll
 The same name as the main character? Really?
 Hmm, I don't think I could forget that.
Jekyll
 Well, let's set that aside.
 It is a very common name, after all.
Jekyll
 ——As I was saying, I am Henry Jekyll.
 All I want to do is stop this blight on my hometown.
Jekyll
 But the more important matter at hand is you folks.
 You're slightly different from us, aren't you?

FAST FADE OUT

Mordred
 ——Hmm... Singularity, huh?
Jekyll
 One of seven bolts that were driven into the world.
 And...the London of this era is that bolt.
Mash
 Yes. We're searching for the Holy Grail,
 which we believe causes the Singularity.
Jekyll
 I understand your situation now, more or less. Now, let
 me tell you of the city's circumstances that we're aware
 of
Jekyll
 Each night for the past three nights,
 a lethal fog has descended upon London.
Jekyll
 If you wear a mask in an area where the fog is thin,
 you probably won't die from it.
Jekyll
 But it's no good where it's thick. Normal creatures
 will be corrupted by the magical energy just by breathing
 it.
Jekyll
 It probably depends on one's predisposition,
 but in the worst cases, death comes within an hour.
Jekyll
 I don't have the exact numbers, but according to
 my calculations, several hundred thousand have died.
Jekyll
 There are areas that have become ghost towns already.
 The East End is just about wiped out.
Jekyll
 It's only a matter of time before the entire city
 is nothing but ruins.
Jekyll
 It's all because of that fog. An extraordinary dense fog
 laced with potent magical energy ——
Jekyll
 For now, we're
 calling it Demonic Fog.
Mash
 London, covered by a deadly fog... It's slightly similar
 to an incident that will occur in the 20th century.
Dr. Roman
 Is it off by a century?
 That's probably what the Singularity is... But...
Dr. Roman
 I'll look at the 20th century case, too. I had thought this
 was a one city deal, but it's getting pretty complicated.
Jekyll
 It's not just the Demonic Fog.
 You two should've engaged in combat as well.
Jekyll
 These past three days———on top of the Demonic Fog,
 London has been plagued with other types of threats.
Jekyll
 Those committing atrocities under cover of the fog.
 Automatas made of magecraft, killer homunculi...
Jekyll
 Helter Skelter-——
Jekyll
 And there's a serial killer.
 The newspapers call them "Jack the Ripper."
Mash
 The newspapers?
Jekyll
 Yes, the newspapers were still being printed
 on the first day of the Demonic Fog... Though no longer.
Jekyll
 Understandably, it seems neither Scotland Yard
 nor the government has a handle on the situation.
Jekyll
 Government functions are already starting to freeze up.
 External support is hindered by the fog, isolating
 London.
Jekyll
 It's already been three days.
 A cooped-up populace won't last long.
Jekyll
 The Demonic Fog doesn't go indoors,
 but once food and water runs out, London will perish.
Dr. Roman
 ...That's horrifying. The situation requires quick response.
 All right then, Mr. Jekyll and Mordred.
Dr. Roman
 I have a proposal. We'd like you to help us search for
 the Holy Grail, the likely origin of this situation.
Jekyll
 Nothing would suit us better.
 Right, Saber?
Mordred
 Fine with me.
 It seems like the best thing to do.
Dr. Roman
 Good, this will truly help us!
 In more ways than one!
Dr. Roman
 So— Mash and (Your Name),
 lucky for us, this apartment is over a Leyline!

  1. Excuse me?  2. We can put a Terminal Point here
  Select: Excuse me?

  Select: We can put a Terminal Point here


Fou
 Fouuu!
Mash
 Right, Senpai and Fou.
 It's possible to set up a Summoning Circle in this room.
Mash
 Maybe Mr. Jekyll knew about the Leyline
 and intentionally built his apartment over it?
Jekyll
 Oh, no, I'm not a legitimate mage, so this isn't
 a magecraft workshop. It's just a regular room.
Jekyll
 At any rate, feel free to use it as you please.
 What are you going to do?
Dr. Roman
 We'll put the Servant summoning circle over the Leyline
 to boost (Your Name) and Mash's combat abilities.
 Dr. Roman
 Servants summoned by the circle aren't always active,
 but they're a huge help during battles!
Dr. Roman
 All right!
 Let's start setting it up!
Mash
 Roger.
 Creating Terminal Point——
Da Vinci
 While they make the circle,
 I'll help you pass the time.
Da Vinci
 Previously, I spoke about Servant class affinity,
 so I think I'll expand on that.
Da Vinci
 Just as each Heroic Spirit has a story to tell, they have
 classifications that explain how they were born.
Da Vinci
 There are three attributes: Heaven, Earth, and Human.
 Most Servants fall under one of these categories.
Da Vinci
 Heaven includes Divine Spirits demoted to Heroic Spirits,
 children of gods, and embodiments of legends.
Da Vinci
 Earth includes legendary heroes that took hold in the
 land, fairies, and Demonic Beasts.
Da Vinci
 Human is for heroes and great people who actually
 existed. I'm included in this group, as a great artist who
 actually existed.
Da Vinci
 Heaven wins over Earth, but loses to Human.
 Earth wins over Human, but loses to Heaven.
Da Vinci
 And Human wins over Heaven, but loses to Earth.
Da Vinci
 ..Humans believe in gods. However,
 gods that they stop believing in become "nonexistent."
Da Vinci
 Native heroes and fairies have nothing to do with faith.
 However, they are no match for the gods that created
 them.
Da Vinci
 ...And there are rare, special Heroic Spirits
 that do not belong in any of the three attributes.
Da Vinci
 They are an exception of exceptions.
 —The Heroic Spirits of the Star.
Da Vinci
 They do not belong to Heaven, Earth, or Human.
 Yet they exist on earth under heaven, and are born of
 humans.
Da Vinci
 Servants of the Star have nothing to do with Heaven,
 Earth, or Humans. After all, they're an exception.
Da Vinci
 That said, these are nothing more than categories.
Da Vinci
 The effects aren't as pronounced as Class affinity,
 so it's not worth integrating into a strategy.
Da Vinci
 ...And that wraps up this session. Summoning circle
 setup complete. Good luck in this era, too!
Dr. Roman
 Thank you, Da Vinci, thank you!
 Thank you yet again!
Jekyll
 Who was that just now? She was beautiful,
 but... She wasn't actually here, was she?
Fou
 Fou, fouuu!
Jekyll
 ???
Mordred
 ...Mmm. I remember seeing him somewhere before.
 Phantasmal?
Fou
 F-Fouuuu...
Mash
 Fou?
Jekyll
 Perhaps a rare animal from around Africa? Anyway
 Saber, and this concerns Mash and (Your Name), too.
Jekyll
 This is abrupt—
 but I would like to ask you three to do something.

FADE OUT

Mordred
 We just got back and we have to go out
 into the Demonic Fog again? Good grief.
Mash
 I apologize for asking you to lead the way.
 It's just that we're not used to London yet.
Mordred
 Oh, it's fine. Don't worry. If you guys hadn't come here,
 this work would've had to be all mine.
Mordred
 If anything, I should be thanking you. Sorry for making
 you come along based on vague information.
 Mash
 Oh, no, Mordred. Not at all...
Dr. Roman
 Protecting one of Mr. Jekyll's other collaborators,
 the Swiss scholar Mr. Frankenstein, huh?
Dr. Roman
 Seems he's been unreachable since this morning.
 Do you normally communicate with each other via radio?
Mordred
 Jekyll does. He calls it his information network.
 I don't really understand it.
Mordred
 He has collaborators all over the city
 and chats with them on the radio every day.
Mordred
 Old man Victor
 was safe until yesterday at least.
Dr. Roman
 Victor Frankenstein, huh... Just when we thought
 it's another character from a novel, it turns out to be his
 "relative."
Mash
 The grandchild of the mage that became the model
 character in the novel, was what Mr. Jekyll mentioned.
Mash
 Unexpected, indeed.
 In Mary Shelly's novel...
Mash
 Dr. Frankenstein was a scientist. But the person
 he was modeled after was a real-life mage.
Mash
 It brings to mind that idiom
 about how "truth is stranger than fiction".

  1. Is it that strange?  2. Are scientists and mages really that different?
  Select: Is it that strange?

  Select: Are scientists and mages really that different?


Mash
 Yes. Strictly speaking,
 magecraft and science are contrary to each other.
Mash
 Chaldea's existence is an extreme exception, and if you
 think about it, both globally and historically———
Dr. Roman
 Oh yes, but everything has an exception. In a certain era,
 science and magecraft virtually meant the same thing.
Dr. Roman
 For example, even if you set aside ancient times,
 some will say alchemy is the origin of chemistry.
Dr. Roman
 There are numerous examples of mages who are known
 as renowned scientists, chemists, and scholars.
Dr. Roman
 You know,
 Da Vinci is one such example.
Mash
 Ah——
Da Vinci
 Mmm. You called?
Da Vinci
 Oh, you're talking about science and magecraft.
 I'm no help there. After all...
Da Vinci
 I'm almighty.
 You can't compare me to anyone. Too bad. Bye.
Mash
 Ah! We lost the connection.

  1. What's with her, anyway?  2. Da Vinci is way too carefree...
  Select: What's with her, anyway?

  Select: Da Vinci is way too carefree...


Mash
 I know...
Mordred
 We're near Soho.
 Keep your guard up now. They'll be here soon.
Mordred
 The edge of the City Area where Jekyll's apartment is
 seems relatively peaceful in comparison.
Mordred
 This area is no good.
 We're in their territory.
Dr. Roman
 So it appears. I'm picking up multiple motion signals.
 It'll be a fight, so watch out!
Mash
 Right. Master, your orders!

BATTLE

Mordred
 ...Damn. They're coming again.
 I wish I could unleash my Noble Phantasm at will.
Mash
 We're inside the city.
 I'm sorry, but you must get your temper under control.
Mordred
 I know that, Shieldy.
 Ugh, somehow I feel weird when you tell me that.
Mash
 Hold on. "Shieldy?"
 Are you referring to me?
Mordred
 Huh? You have a shield, don't you?
 You use it to defend and bash people in the face.
Mordred
 Or, does "Ms. Shieldy" sound better?
 I don't care which one you pick.
Mash
 ...That's okay.
 Just call me "Shieldy," please...
Dr. Roman
 The enemy is trying to flank us from both sides.
 Can you take care of the right side, Saber Mordred?
 Mordred .
 Leave it to me. I usually deal with everything by myself.
Mordred
 Are you ready over there, (Your Name)?

  1. Yes, I'm ready!  2. Strike foes from the left!
  Select: Yes, I'm ready!

  Select: Strike foes from the left!


Mash
 Roger. Entering battle with hostiles!

BATTLE

Mash
 ...Excuse me.
 Can I talk to you for a second?
Mash
 I, um...
Mordred
 What? Speak up.
 If you have something to say, just say it.
Mash
 All right, then.
Mash
 I have a question for you.
 Why are you fighting here?
Mash
 Mr. Jekyll is fighting to protect his hometown.
 But what about you——
Mordred
 I already told you, didn't !? I'm here to face the perils
 of Father's beloved Londinium.
Mash
 Well, sure...
 I mean...
Mash
 Yes, I did hear that when we first met.
 I understand that, really, but...
Mash
 I hope you won't get upset, but for some reason,
 I... I feel like...it's for a different reason.
Mordred
 ...Jeez.
Mordred
 All right.
 I didn't even tell Jekyll about this, you know?
Mordred
 I just——
Mordred
 Yes, that's right. I just can't allow the land of
 Britain to be violated by someone other than me.
Mordred
 I'm the only one allowed to violate the land
 King Arthur loved. I can't let anyone else do that.

  1. Select: ...  2. So distorted...
  Select: Select: ...

  Select: So distorted...


Mordred
 Hm? Did you say something?

  1. No, not at all.  2. Not particularly.
  Select: No, not at all.

  Select: Not particularly.


Mordred
 If you want to say something, say it.
 Well, anyway...
Mordred
 Don't worry.
 I will give you the Holy Grail once we find it.
Mordred
 I won't say "I want it after all" or anything.
 And even if I did, it wouldn't serve any purpose.
Mordred
 I'm Mordred, the Treacherous Knight. But this time
 it's special, and I'll be on the defender's side.
Mordred
 Honestly, I was hesitating a bit.
 Meeting you guys cleared up my mind.
Mash
 What do you mean?
Mordred
 I mean, someone worthy of being the owner finally
 showed up. You can have the Holy Grail.
Mash
 ???
Mordred
 Enough chitchat.
 Don't bring up this topic ever again.
Mordred
 We're almost at the mansion, but enemies are here
 again. Well then, shall we rip them apart?
Dr. Roman
 Mordred's detection is amazing. Is it an Intuition skill?
 We detected hostile reactions too. There'll be three
 waves!
Mash
 Roger.
 Master, orders please!

BATTLE

Mordred
 All right, we're here.
 This big building is Victor's mansion.
Mordred
 Unlike Jekyll who's half-assed,
 he is a genuine mage, so be careful.
Mordred
 Traps like barriers and such are set up all over, so even
 Servants get hurt if they touch things without knowing.
Mordred
 When I first visited to check things out,
 I had an absolutely terrible experience here.
Mash
 Oh, okay.
 I'll be careful, then.
Dr. Roman
 A death trap workshop in an urban area...
 Sounds like a cautious old guy with pretty strong nerves.
Mordred
 The first challenge is the entrance door.
 See, look at that big door ——
Mordred
 ——Damn, we're too late.
Mash
 Someone is at the entrance...
 A tall silhouette... A clown?
Mordred
 Hey, you! Scarecrow! Or are you a living statue?
 Whatever! Anyway...
Mordred
 ...you Stink like hell.
 It's like blood, guts, and fire.
Mordred
 And the catalyst for the old man's favorite
 elemental spell? I can smell it from here!
Mordred
 You killed him, didn't you.
 You murdered Victor Frankenstein.
???
 Yes, I did———
 Well, no, let me see. Just a moment, please.
???
 Indeed, indeed. That elderly man will not open his
 mouth, brush his teeth, eat food, or breathe ever again.
???
 Yes, yes.
 Frankly speaking, I'm certain he is dead.
???
 It's a shame. He refused to join our cause.
 Right till the very end.
???
 But, and yet, however.
 Who killed Victor Frankenstein?
???
 That might be quite a difficult question to answer.
 Because he "blew himself up."
Mash
 !!!
???
 Oh, my.
 Did I scare the beautiful young lady?
???
 My apologies.
 As you can see, I am a demon after all——
???
 That was a joke, and I'm sorry for letting you down,
 but I'm actually a Heroic Spirit.
???
 I'm a Servant just like you.
 The class is Caster.
???
 ...Oh?
 Well, folks, you don't get it?
Mordred
 That's enough. Shut up.
???
 No, I'm sure you got that.
 You wonder why I revealed my class so easily?
???
 It is reasonable during a Holy Grail War unlike
 any other. At least that lady over there knows why!
???
 An encounter instantly becomes an all-out battle!
 As we are Servants without Masters———
???
 We can be called the most powerful forces on the earth.
 However...
???
 Sadly, it seems that you have a Master.
 Best you protect yourself well. Otherwise, in no time...
Mordred
 Enough small talk.
 And wipe that grin off your face right now.
???
 Pardon?
Mordred
 That smirk of a smile! So annoying!
 Was it really that fun to kill that old man?
???
 Well, sure———
???
 Once he rejected our cause,
 it was like a job to me, so to speak.
Mash
 Cause?
???
 When you are obligated to do something,
 it's usually quite a nuisance, indeed.
???
 But still, it feels good to do your best.
 You will work hard for a job you enjoy.
???
 His expression in the moment he died. The face of a
 human who understood the transition from life to death!
???
 Despair!
 Sorrow! Ah! That is exactly it———!
???
 Well, anyway, something like that———
???
 It killed my boredom?
 At least, I guess?
Mordred
 ...I see.
Mordred
 Immigrant or not, that old man was a citizen of Britain.
 Listen, you took him...
Mordred
 You put your hand on "my stuff" without my permission.
 You know what will happen?
???
 — What?
Mordred
 ——I'm saying, I'm going to kill you, dumb-ass clown!
???
 Well, well, well!
 You? Killing me? Can you, really?
???
 You seem to be a hot-blooded person!
 Good, that's fine. I'll try not to disappoint you then!
???
 You might as well watch out for the explosions!
 My Noble Phantasm has already been set up!
???
 By my True Name, Mephistopheles!
 I shall relish striking you all down into despair!
Dr. Roman
 You've set up what!? Dammit! I don't know if
 it's because of the fog or his skill, but it's undetectable!
Mash
 Master, hostile Servant approaching!
 Orders, please——

  1. Get him!  2. Fight and watch out for his Noble Phantasm!
  Select: Get him!

  Select: Fight and watch out for his Noble Phantasm!


Mash
 ...Roger!

BATTLE

Mephistopheles
 This is quite...regretful!
 This materialization was one I couldn't enjoy much of...
Mephistopheles
 I suppose Servants need Masters after all... Yes, the
 power of the bond between Master and Servant...
Mephistopheles
 Something of it...
 Not. Yes, definitely not.
Mephistopheles
 Once a Master decides to fulfill an earnest wish, I must
 make at least one child must die by the Master's hand.
Mephistopheles
 Otherwise you can't enjoy the best part of a Holy Grail
 War. Oh, I envy you, Shield Servant...
Mephistopheles
 You will have countless chances from here onwards...
 to betray and throw your Master into despair!
Mephistopheles
 lam so...jealous of you!
Mordred
 ——Shut up.

FADE OUT

Mordred
 ...Did you find anything?
Mash
 Yes. I found the note the doctor left.
 Apparently, he was writing this when he was attacked.
Mordred
 I see.
 I must say, he was a lax old guy until the end.
Mash
 ...I'll read it out loud.
Mash
 "I learned of a certain plot. Its name is 'Project Demonic
 Fog.' Though its present state is still unknown,"
Mash
 "The three leaders of the project are 'P', 'B' and 'M',
 can cast spells beyond human wisdom. Probably Heroic
 Spirits."
Mordred
 Is "M" the guy from earlier?
 Well, let's take this back and have Jekyll read it, too.
Mordred
 And now...
 I've found something interesting, too.
Mordred
 Hey, come over here.
???
 ...Uh.
Mash
 A girl?

  1. She has a horn.  2. Is she human? Or a Servant?
  Select: She has a horn.

Mash
 Yes, she does have a horn...

  Select: Is she human? Or a Servant?

Mash
 Who knows?
 It would be the best if we ask her.


Mash
 Are you a human?
 Or are you a Servant just like us?
???
 ...Uhh.
Mash
 ?
Dr. Roman
 Hmm, I can't determine what she is... All I can read
 is that there are vital and physical reactions.
Dr. Roman
 It seems the detection issues caused by the Demonic Fog
 can reach indoors, too. How about you, Mash?
Mash
 I can't figure it out, either.
 How about you, Mordred?
Mordred
 I can't tell for sure by just her presence.
 I think the Demonic Fog outside is interrupting.
Mordred
 But, you're asking what she is?
 Of course she's a Servant———
Mordred
 At least I wish I could say that.
 ...In my memory, that's how it was supposed to be...
Mordred
 Anyway, yes.
 She is an artificial human. Apparently.
Mash
 An artificial human——is she?
Mordred
 I found her in the coffin in the backroom,
 and a note was attached. Let me see...
Mordred
 First artificial human created by Grandfather Victor
 Frankenstein, or something like that.
Dr. Roman
 So it is Frankenstein's monster.
 But didn't it burn up in the end according to the novel?
Dr. Roman
 I wonder if she can hear my voice.
 Let's see... Are you Frankenstein's monster?
???
 ...Uhh, ah... uuuh...
Mordred
 Hm?
Mash
 It seems like she doesn't have a speech function.
 But I can somehow understand her.
???
 ...
 ...
Mash
 Name, I guess.
 Monster——is certainly a name you don't like, right?
???
 ...Uhh.

  1. Then, how about Fran?
  Select: Then, how about Fran?


???
 ...Uh...
Mash
 Ah, she seems to be happy with the name.
 Okay then, Ms. Fran.
 Fran
 ...Uh...
Mash
 You are an artificial human... Is that correct?
 Fran
 ...Uh, uh...
Mordred
 You're not a Servant, huh.
 Oh, I get it. You mean, "you're still alive."
Mordred
 I finally understand.
 No wonder I couldn't figure it out just by looking at you.
Mash
 ?
Mordred
 Oh, never mind.
Mordred
 We can't just leave her here,
 so let's take her back to Jekyll.
Fran
 ...Uh, uh...
Mordred
 Your master is no longer here.
 You can go anywhere you want.
Mordred
 I'll let you stay with Jekyll for now. Let's go. The fog
 shouldn't impact you if you're an artificial human.
Mash
 Is she...really?
