|“||Even if something exists for millions of years, it's only the false impression of eternal youth that humans project on it. But all things possess the seed of destruction. There is nothing in the universe that is immutable for eternity. Get lost, vengeful demon. No matter how long or great a life is, as long as it has an end, I won't hesitate to kill even a god!||„|
|~ Shiki to Avenger|
Assassin is an Assassin-class Pseudo-Servant Ritsuka Fujimaru may summon in the Grand Orders of Fate/Grand Order and their primary ally in investigating the distortion near Singularity F.
Assassin's True Name is Shiki Ryougi, a descendant of a clan of demon hunters known for their split personalities. While investigating the supernatural on the behalf of the Garan no Dou headed by Touko Aozaki, Shiki gained enough infamy to be recorded as an "Urban Legend", allowing her to be summoned as a temporary Pseudo-Servant after human history is razed by the King of Magic.
Powers and Stats
Name: Assassin, Ryougi Shiki
Age: 16 years old
Classification: Assassin-class Pseudo Servant
Powers and Abilities: Superhuman Physical Characteristics, Enhanced Senses (Her eyesight is of the best quality among Servants, allowing her to ignore visual obstructions), Expert Knife Wielder, Skilled Hand-to-Hand Combatant, Can interact with intangible objects and entities with her Magical Prosthetic Arm, Stealth Mastery, Precognition (Has a natural sixth sense that allows her to sense and avoid danger in combat), Conceptual Manipulation (Type 1) and Death Manipulation via her Mystic Eyes of Perception (Shiki can cut down anything regardless of its durability by tracing its Lines of with an edged weapon, even slicing apart concepts and abstract abilities like Fujino Asagami's telekinesis. The "lines of death" she cuts are also stated to be on a level higher than the normal concept of death), Regeneration Negation (At least Mid-Godly. Because of Shiki killing the concept of "you", wounds dealt through the Mystic Eyes of Death Perception will not heal even after a conceptual regeneration of the being), Immortality Negation (All types; although she needs to overheat her brain to bypass type 5 immortality), Transformation (Can transform into her Saber self. However, this is the choice of her third personality), Supernatural Luck, Minor Fate Manipulation (Servants with B-rank Luck or higher can change their own fates to evade inevitable outcomes such as having their hearts destroyed by Gáe Bolg) and Servant Physiology
Attack Potency: Island level (Despite having E- Rank Strength, she is strong enough to give other physically inclined Servants, such as Shielder, a serious challenge and helped to defeat foes as powerful as Arturia Alter), Can ignore conventional durability with her Mystic Eyes of Death Perception
Lifting Strength: Class K (Comparable to Martha who stopped a speeding train, Achilles who stopped a rolling 300 ton jumbo jet, and Asterios who swam carrying the 100-150 ton Golden Hind galleon ship while injured)
Stamina: High (Servants can fight for at least a day without tiring and can continue fighting for as long as they have a steady supply of mana)
Range: Up to three meters with her knife, Several dozen meters by throwing her knife or by grasping intangible foes with her magical prosthetic arm
Standard Equipment: Her knife as well as a second, hidden knife for throwing and on the occasion that she's disarmed, Her magical prosthetic arm
Intelligence: Shiki's skills have not dulled as a Servant, making her equivalent to a fifth-dan kendo master with a knife in hand that's capable of fighting Heroic Spirits as powerful as Arturia Alter, whose skills have long transcended that of mortal men, in close combat. She is keenly perceptive, instantly deducing that the "Jekyll" they encountered at the apartments was simply Hyde pretending to be sane and stopping both of his surprise attacks from killing the protagonist. She is also a fairly skilled hand-to-hand combatant and is crafty enough to throw her spare knife at Avenger's shadow when he was trying to lead her off the roof of the apartment to kill her.
Weaknesses: The Mystic Eyes of Death Perception are limited by the user's vision of death. Certain entities, such as the body of an enlightened Buddha, may possess "Advanced Lines of Death" that are difficult for Shiki to decipher and trace. To kill a being without a concept of death, she needs to overheat her brain and tap into her "imagination". Shiki is somewhat bloodthirsty and enjoys having the ability to go all out and put her life on the line.
The end of a dream.
|~ Shiki using her Noble Phantasm|
Vijñaptimātratā: Mystic Eyes of Death Perception: The maximum application of Shiki's Mystic Eyes of Death Perception, Shiki rushes past her foes while quickly severing their Lines of Death with a single smooth flourish, instantly killing the target. This disregards durability, longevity, regeneration, self-resurrection, and even reincarnation by exposing and invoking the target's concept of death.
Presence Concealment: The signature ability of the Assassin class, it allows the user to conceal their presence from others. Due to being closer to a serial killer than an assassin in life, Shiki only has a C rank in this skill, allowing her to remain hidden for as long as she doesn't attack, making this ability suitable for spying. But those with especially well-attuned senses like Servants will be able to locate her.
Independent Action: The ability of a Servant to operate without a Master, allowing a Servant to act for extended periods of time without one. Shiki possesses an A-Rank in this skill, allowing her to stay manifested for a week without a Master's support if she stays out of combat.
Mystic Eyes of Death Perception: A so-called "superpower among superpowers", Shiki's Mystic Eyes are of a grade beyond compare, allowing her to see the Lines of Death that crisscross along all things that are "alive". Even some concepts are not exempt from this ability, allowing her to cut down the concept of distance to instantly erase a gap between herself and her opponent, the concept of sickness to cure someone's appendicitis, the telekinetic spirals of Fujino Asagami, and the predetermined future created by Mitsuru Kamekara. In addition, all wounds created by severing these Lines of Death cannot heal by normal means, requiring victims to create a new body if they wish to survive repeated slashes from Shiki. But if the point or line where all the other lines converge is severed, no amount of regeneration will save the target.
Eye of the Mind (False): A natural talent that grants one a "sixth sense", allowing them to foresee immediate danger and act accordingly, with the accuracy and frequency of the predictions themselves being improved through experience. Shiki's A-Rank in this skill means it reduces the effects of visual obstruction. In addition, since her rank in this skill is equivalent to Sasaki Kojiro's, she should theoretically be able to see through the weapon and style of her opponent even if said weapon were rendered invisible.
Taijitu: A skill based in Taoist philosophy that reflects Shiki's dual nature as one with both a male (Yang) and a female (Yin) personality, representing the dual nature of existence as existences must be destroyed to continue that of others. By using this skill, Shiki sacrifices her physical health to restore her mana so she can continue fighting longer.
Magical Prosthetic Arm: A magical prosthetic arm made by Touko Aozaki, the greatest puppet maker in the world. It is able to grasp intangible objects and beings like ghosts from a distance and possesses greater physical strength than her normal arm.
Note: Not to be confused with her human counterpart.
