The story revolves around Shiro Emiya, a hardworking and honest teenager who reluctantly participates in a deadly tournament called the Fifth Holy Grail War, where fighters battle magic and heroes throughout history for a chance to fulfill their wishes. Orphaned and the only survivor of a major fire in Fuyuki City as a child, Shiro was adopted by a former magician named Kiritsugu Emiya, who died many years later. His responsibility to the dead and his salvation through his father formed in him a strong desire for justice and peace. As such, he seriously trains his body and secondary abilities through magic to help others greatly someday, even if at his stage people often abuse his generosity.
One evening, after seeing two incredibly powerful beings exchange swords and spears at their school, he is attacked, as he usually has to destroy the witnesses of the Holy Grail War. Pursued to his home by a spear-armed lancer warrior and barely able to escape his attacks, Shiro is about to be killed when Saber rescues him. Saber, the personification of a famous historical figure (in her case, Arturia Pendragon), was created to help the participants in the war. Her supposedly accidental summons and the appearance of marks on Shiro’s arm officially confirm his entry as a Master in the Holy Grail War.
