Character

The future Lord El-Melloi II, Waver Velvet is a nineteen year old student at Clock Tower, an institute of the Magus Association, and mage with a recognized magical lineage of three generations. While he is talented, but not recognized by his peers or lecturers.

An intelligent young man, Waver came up with the revolutionary concept that a mage's power could be increased through effort, experience, and knowledge rather than increasing magical potential through that of a mage's heirs. His idea is dismissed by his lecturer, the nobleman Kayneth Archibald El-Melloi, who tears up Waver's manuscript without another thought.

When Waver discovers that El-Melloi will participate in the fourth Holy Grail War in Japan, Waver steals the artifact El-Melloi intends to use to summon his Servant and runs off to Japan. Intending to win the Holy Grail in order to force the Magus Association to recognize his genius, he takes the stolen artifact and summons Rider-class Servant, Iskander.

Though an adept mage, his confidence in his own skill comes off as arrogance. Waver is not courageous by nature and somewhat short-tempered, which makes it difficult to control the overbearing Iskander, who has no interest in the Holy Grail. The two of them stay with Glen and Martha Mackenzie, an elderly Canadian couple living in Japan, for the duration of the war. The couple, thanks to Waver's magical abilities, are under the impression that he is their grandson. The illusion eventually wears off, though the couple continue to allow Waver and Rider to live with them and choose not to reveal the truth until the final day of the Holy Grail War.

After the Grail War, Waver decides to continue living with the Mackenzies for a while in order to save up money to travel around the world. He also takes with him, among the many items accumulated by Iskander bought during their time together, the video games that the Servant bought but never had a chance to play. He eventually takes on the title of his former teacher at the insistence of Lord El-Melloi's sister.

As Lord El-Melloi II, Waver Velvet appears in "Fate/hollow ataraxia" as Rin Tōsaka's lecturer at the Magus Association and possesses an interest in the popular culture of Japan (though he likes little else about the country). He is responsible for dismantling the Holy Grail after the fifth Holy Grail War.

Waver's servant is Iskander, who was summoned using a mantle once worn by Iskander. The artifact was originally Lord El-Melloi's and stolen by Waver, who intends to prove that his teacher is wrong.

Iskander, the King of Conquerors, is noble and physically overbearing. He is an enormous man who has little interest in the Holy Grail and cares more about conquering the world again, especially now that he realizes the world is much bigger than he was aware of during his life. He is especially fascinated by ordinary aspects of modern life and intends to inform the world of his return, much to Waver's chagrin.

When Rider is summoned, Waver has difficulty getting along with his servant due to differing personalities and Rider's lack of interest in winning the Grail. Rider's self-centred nature makes him especially difficult to control and Waver finds himself accommodating his interests to his Servant's to ensure Rider remains focused on defeating opposing Servants.

As the Holy Grail War continues, Waver and Iskander develop a deep friendship despite their differences and Iskander teaches Waver how to live like a man. On the final day of the war, Waver decides it is too dangerous for him to continue participating in the war and uses all three of his Command Seals to order Iskander to defeat all the remaining Servants, win the Grail, and not to return unless he succeeded. By using all of his Command Seals, Waver effectively abandons his position as Rider's Master and allows the Servant to do as he wishes. However, Iskander insists that Waver stand at his side as he rides off to his final battle as his friend, rather than his Master.

Iskander engages in a battle with Archer, leaving Waver in a safe location to observe the battle. When the King of Conquerors is defeated by the golden Servant, Archer confronts Waver. Though he is afraid, Waver courageously stands up to Archer, declaring that he is a follower of Iskander and that he has been ordered to live for Iskander's sake. Out of respect for Iskander's final wishes, Archer spares Waver's life.
