… Servant’s true name.
As the name implied, it meant the true names of servants.
The servants were all characters who once existed in various legends, fantasy, and even myths. Their names have been passed down from generation to generation.
Let’s take Caster as an example. He was the famous hero of the Ulster of Northern Ireland in the famous Irish mythology.
Legend said he was a demi-god hero, whose father was the god of light, Lugh, and was known as the son of light in Ireland.
According to legend, Cú Chulainn was trained by Scáthach in the land of Alba that even gods couldn’t kill, and he learned amazing spear skills and magic in the land of Alba. After that, he joined the famous Red Knights and was undefeated on the battlefield.
The spear he held was an anti-magic spear. It could pierce through any magic.
The technique he learned was Rune Magic.
In norse mythology, Odin exchanged his eye for the supreme wisdom, and he created a rune which caused anything it was engraved on to be able to exert infinite power, it was called the primordial rune.
In Europe, Cú Chulainn’s name was enough to rival the Legendary Knight King Arthur of Britain and the great hero Heracles of Greek mythology.
In Ireland, where he was born, he was known as the strongest knight and a famous sage.
“If I was summoned in Lancer class, it will be easier to deal with Saber.” Caster said.
However, Rozen was convinced.
“Although your magic is the first-rate, when we talk about Cú Chulainn, isn’t he more famous for his spear skill?”
One-shot one-kill, anyone who got hit by Cú Chulainn’s spear would suffer an eternal wound.
That servant’s strongest skill was his spear skill.
It was a pity that he was summoned in Caster class, and he did not get his anti-magic spear. He could only use the magic rune skill from the Nordic myth.
However, Caster was definitely a first-class servant.
“I have already killed Lancer, Rider, and Assassin, and you have killed berserker, the remaining enemies are Saber and Archer.”
Caster’s words made Rozen’s party dumbfounded.
“As long as all the servants were defeated, the Holy Grail war will end, and I can achieve my purpose.” For this purpose, Caster already defeated three servants.
Looking at Rozen’s party current strength, Caster could provide an area of effect (AoE) damage, which was very useful in a battle even though Caster was inferior to Archer. And Archer was also stronger than Mashu, who was only a demi-servant.
“Who knows if this servant is worthy of our trust? To put an end to this abnormal Holy Grail War, is that really all there is to it?”
Olga Marie was skeptical.
What’s more, the fundamental purpose of the servants participating in the Holy Grail War and formed a contract with the masters was to get the Holy Grail.
Olga Marie was afraid if Caster was just using them to get the Holy Grail.
“He is a sage who has learned the primordial rune. As a magician, he is more skilled than anyone in our times. Who knows if he has a way to break the contract?”
Because of this, Olga Marie was not willing to trust Caster.
Rozen also thought about this problem.
“By the way, the command seal is also rune magic formed by high-level magic. If it’s a high-class magician, maybe there is a way to deal with it.”
But Rozen believed in Caster because he already gave his true name.
The reason was simple.
“The name of a servant was not something they can tell so casually.”
That was the reason why Rozen believed in Caster.
Because to tell his real name was equivalent to revealing his weakness and his strong point. For example, anyone could know his weapon and noble phantasm, what was the cause of his death, etc.
In other words, Caster put so much trust in Rozen because he told Rozen his weakness indirectly.
“Will Ireland’s son of light stoop so low as committing a betrayal?” Rozen knew Caster’s original name was not Cú Chulainn, but Sétanta. Cú Chulainn was his second name that meant Chulann’s Hound.
The story behind that name was because he accidentally killed the Chulann’s guard dog when he was young.
“The meaning of Chulann’s hound is to protect its master and stay loyal to the master. I will always protect you until our contract is over.”
In mythology, Cú Chulainn had a violent character and bad temper, but he was also a brutal man who didn’t fear the Fomorians and tied himself to a stone pillar before death.
For such a person, Rozen did not believe that he will betray him just to obtain the Holy Grail.
“Of course, if he told us the fake name, then there is nothing I can do.”
Rozen was aware of that possibility, but he didn’t care.
“Tomorrow, we will kick Saber and Archer’s ass!” Caster laughed.
“Before that, please have a good rest, my master.”
Tomorrow will be the final battle, Rozen must recover his magical power first. Not long after, he felt so sleepy.
“I had to take care of these young ones…”
