Well, actually, it's the name of the founder of the Hashishins which means in Arabic : haschish smokers... Those guys were pure-bred assassins, and haschish was used to alter their emotions, moral values and perception of reality to make them more efficient (though it does decrease reflexes).

The latinized word "assassin" comes from this Arabic word.

Actually ... he's not really evil ... he's following the rules and doing as his master says ... Cu Challain was very loyal and duty bound, right? In that regard it makes sense ... they just made his facial expressions look evil XD

Isn't his love for battle and power the reason why he joins that witch in the legend?

At least that's what they made it out to be in Fate/Hollow

question - can a master have more than one servant at a time? and what happens if a master uses up his three command spells? does the servant disappear?

and don't you guys think rider looks more like an assassin than the servant assassin? =p

Yeah, Assassin looks more like a Swordsman type class.

According to my knowledge, Masters can only get one Servant per war. If they use all three command seals, the pact with their Servant is broken, and then they are supposed to go to that one church for protection. If a Servant is freed from it's contract, it can join another Master that has no Servant but has command seals.

Feel free to correct/add anything other ppl

Well, it's pretty much it.

Summoning a Servant is close to Magic (as opposed to sorcery/thaumaturgy humans can practice freely) and to be precise, resurrection Magic.

In order for a human to do that, he has to be chosen by the Holy Grail as a Master and the Holy Grail will provide the Master with what is needed for the summoning.

The 3 Holy marks, the Command Spells, will then appear on the chosen ones. The right to issue 3 absolute orders. However, since these marks are what make you a Master, if you use up all three, you're no longer a Master. Your Servant is freed from you (though he may like to stay with you a bit longer, if he can) and has to find another Master within a limited time (well, except one Servant, who can remain undefinately) in order to get mana replenishement again and remain materialized.

However, a Master can have several Servants, but the mana he can provide will be cut by half. If a Master that already has a Servant is willing to get a stray Servant, he can.

It's not that you can't have two Servants in a War, it's that the Grail will provide you with what is necessary for ONE summoning. If, by another mean (no human can usually summon a Servant without the Holy Grail), you make a contract with another Servant, then there you go.

Er, one question, just because I've not seen this answered yet... I know it may be obvious but I just want to make sure...

Fate/SN is not a hentai anime despite its origins, correct?

Ooookay, just wanted to make sure.

Us A-mur-canz are prudes, yanno, so we generally try and stay away from the cel-painted pr0n.

EDIT: Something else. Geneon USA's got the liscense, correct?

Gah. If so, to break "the code" or to wait for offical release... mrrrr...

^ Well, not from the hardcore viewers ... I'm sure the mainstream public would complain because the children shouldn't see it
