Ritsuka Fujimaru is the protagonist of Fate/Grand Order and the last remaining Master of Chaldea after the facilities were sabotaged by Lev Lainur Flauros. An ordinary high-school student who was simply looking for employment opportunities, their remarkable affinity for being a Master led them to be recruited by Chaldea despite their middling potential as a magus. Although dead last on the list of viable candidates for actual deployment, a twist of fate places the weight of the world on their shoulders as they race to resolve the singularities that threaten the continuity of human history.

Intelligence: Despite their lack of magical affinity, Ritsuka's affinity as a Master has proven invaluable over the course of their adventures, obtaining a working relationship with even the evilest and devious of Servants and having them loyally work under them despite their ulterior motives. They are also a capable tactician, having led their Servants to victory against small armies of opponents and formulated successful and unpredictable plans that even their own Servants considered crazy.
Weaknesses: Due to their otherwise middling potential as a magus, they rely heavily on Mystic Codes to cast spells, of which they can only wear one at a time. The more Servants they summon, the greater the burden on themselves, making it more difficult to move and use magecraft unless they manage to set up a summoning array on a magical leyline to take away the burden of maintaining their Servants. Summoning attempts through the FATE System can be imprecise without a catalyst. The majority of Mystic Codes they have access to are designed to support Servants rather than engage in direct combat, leaving them vulnerable without the protection of their Servants.

In addition, they have the ability to summon legendary figures from throughout human history and myth with the FATE System, potentially summoning Servants as powerful as King Arthur, Heracles, Cu Chulainn, and Gilgamesh. However, the FATE System is imprecise without a catalyst, and due to their middling magical potential, their ability to sustain multiple Servants at once is limited without access to a leyline. However, they seem to have little to no issue maintaining multiple shadow servants simultaneously.
- Mad Enhancement: Ritsuka can implement Mad Enhancement or up its existing Rank on a Berserker-class Servant by utilizing the corresponding chant. Doing so will rob a Servant of their reason but upping their parameters an amount proportional to the loss of mental faculties.
