Mashu Kyrielite, also known as Shielder, is the first Servant in Fate/Grand Order and the only Shielder class in the Fate franchise.
Mashu is the only Servant to have 0 cost. And, as the only Shielder, Mashu is also the only Servant not weak to Berserkers. She is also the only Servant so far to have been both a 3★ and 4★.
In addition, her Skill Strengthening, Ascension and Noble Phantasm upgrades cannot be performed normally. Shielder's 1st Ascension occurs automatically after the completion of Septem. Her 2nd Ascension occurs after the completion of Chapter 4, Arrow 2 of London. Additionally, she gains new Animations and Dialogue for her [Stage 2] Battle Sprite upon reaching E Pluribus Unum. During the 6M Downloads Campaign her level cap at 2nd Ascension increased to 60, akin to an SR Servant. Upon clearing Chapter 15, Arrow 1 of Camelot, she reaches 3rd Ascension as well as becoming an SR Servant herself. In addition, her first skill gets damage cut bonus. After completion of Chapter 17, Arrow 4 of Camelot, her Noble Phantasm is strengthened from Level 1 to 2 and her Noble Phantasm changes from Lord Chaldeas to Lord Camelot, with new animation and an inserted BGM.
After clearing Babylonia chapter, Mashu's level cap will be increased by 10 level with level 80 at max cap and unlock the final ascension image. After clearing Salomon, Mashu's NP level will be increased from 2 to 3.
Imaginary Noble Phantasm Pseudo Deployment/Cornerstone of Anthropic Principle
Rank: D Type: Anti-Unit
The Noble Phantasm deployed by Mash in accordance to her instincts, without understanding the True Name of the Heroic Spirit possessing her.
As for why it is crowned with the name of Chaldea, one would think that is because the wish that lies on Mash's basis is "to see the future of mankind".
< Text changes after clearing Replica(4/5) > Castle of the Distant Utopia Rank: B+++ Type: Anti-Evil
The Noble Phantasm that Heroic Spirit Galahad possesses.
The ultimate protection that employed the Round Table - where the Knights of the Round Table sat at the center of the Castle of White Walls, Camelot - in the form of a shield.
Its strength is proportionate to the willpower of the user, and it has been said that, so long the heart doesn't break, those castle walls too shall never crumble.
A power displayed when protecting allies or an allied camp.
Exhibits damage reduction surpassing the defensive limit value, but she herself is not included as a target.
Also, the higher the Rank more the protective range spreads.
Succeed Phantasm. An unique Skill that Demi-Servants possess. One of the Skills that the possessing Heroic Spirit owns is inherited and sublimated in a self-taught manner.
In Mash's case, it is "Prana Defense".
A Skill of the same type as "Prana Burst", magical power is translated directly into defensive power.
For a Heroic Spirit possessing a huge magical power, it would probably become a sacred wall that protects a whole country.
Mash has obtained the True Name of the Heroic Spirit possessing her.
The name of that knight is Galahad.
One of the Knights of the Round Table from Arthurian Legends.
The saint who was the only one to obtain the Holy Grail, just to return it to heavens.
Chaldea had success in summoning Heroic Spirits with its own original method, but what lies at its foundation is the "place where heroes assemble" - the shield held by Mash, which made use of the Round Table and became the catalyst for summoning Galahad.
After passing over seven singularities and overcoming many battles, she grew up as a single fully-fledged human, a Servant that is not merely a borrowed article.
The virtual Noble Phantasm she used before learning the True Name - Cornerstone of Anthropic Principle (Lord Chaldeas).
That was the wish found at her roots - “to see the future of mankind” - given shape.
...the battle surrounding the incineration of the anthropic principle will soon come to an end.
What sort of conclusion will her journey reach?
The beast of the planet continues to silently watch over that snowflake-like scenery.
Mashu cannot be burned or used as experience for other servants.
There is no Shielder experience card, so only All-Class experience cards will provide an experience bonus.
Mashu is currently unavailable for holy grail ascension.
The Chaldea Standard Craft Essence, obtainable during the Valentine 2016 Event, was the first official mention of Matthew's Romanized name; previously, the English-speaking community called her "Mashu" based on the katakana. In Japanese, where pronunciation of "th" is not natural, マシュー (Mashu) is how Matthew translates.
In the Fate/Grand Order ~First Order~ Cast List, the proper Romanization of the name by TYPE-MOON is Mashu Kirielight.
