It's actually quite an interesting read. Also somewhat amusing how he's proud of how weak he is.

Isn't he supposed to be incredibly average as a mage.

I guess he'll make do with tactics over skill

Rather than average, think more like...bottom of the barrel lol.


For those who aren't aware, there is an ongoing translation effort for the first volume at the Beast's Lair forum. Check it out if you like waiting for things.

He is Fes, the fourth rank Magus which put's him barely above avarage.

...which put him under such as Rin or Luvia.

That said, as shown in F/Z, he's very intelligent and knows how to get the best out of his limited ability. Think of him as a (very) poor man's Tatsuya Shiba without the overpowered asspull-fu.

I don't think you can do justice to anyone to compare him/her to Tatsuya (unless you mean it as critique), after all if you remove asspull-fu from him there is nothing left.

Even with his intellect and preparedness he still can't catch with really strong people... that's why he need Grey as brawn to his brain and insight.

Better comparison would be Rokurou from Black Lagoon.

- You could probably argue that Tatsuya's actual magical ability is being able to asspull anything out of any situation.

Plus, it's apples and oranges. Magic works differently in the Type-Moon universes, so it's not exactly a fair comparison in terms of skill or intellect.

I guess you are agree with me than...

Anyway here is post from another forum concerning clock tower ranks. As I said Weaver is fourth, but IIRC he is batting for fifth.

Apparently there are not many grands in the history of the association. And most lords stop at Brand, so that is "practically," the highest rank.
Lev and Darnic stronk.
Also the the difference between Bride and Brand is like heaven and earth. You actually need super good abilities to become a Brand. While Fes can be given as an honor to normal magi with high status eg Waver.

1.Gray is girl
2.You are mistaking what "direct descendant" means.
3. Being DISTANT descendant doesn't exclude her from being "Saber clone" as she has standard attribute of that ("Seiba face").

That said I never felt need threat Gray as SC due her complete lack of pathos. AFAIC she is just "normal" girl who incidentally happens to have same face as Saber clones (and wield fairly powerful Noble phantasm on her own).

Well, in TYPE-MOON terms, that make her a Saber Clone, right? the mage version (besides of Master Arthuria, but damn, that's being shameless Takeuchi, is only Arturia in a Sailor Fuku, Katana and Command Spells). She have the attribute Saberface, which gives her the power...of the moe, I think so

"Velvet is asking him to cover his face with a hood because he reminds him too much of Arthuria, and as such in painful IV'th Grail War"

Yeah, Rather than he almost eat a Excalibur attack head on

Well, giving that Arthuria had no more kids, this is as direct as you can be.

Well, if she is descendant from one of her sisters ( most likely, since Arthuria had 2 of them after all ) it's not that distant. And of course she is going to look like her when she is from her bloodline

And my mistake, I really thought that she is a gay. Have that feling while reading her TM page in depth.
