Caster (キャスター, Kyasutā) is a Caster-class Servant able to be summoned by the Protagonist in the Grand Orders of Fate/Grand Order.
Caster's True Name is Charles Babbage (チャールズ・バベッジ, Chāruzu Babejji), the King of Steam (蒸気王, Jōki-Ō), a mathematician turned scientist from the 19th century who dreamed about the revolution of the world. He was known as a prodigious great scholar, employing a steam engine to invent the first computers in the world, the Difference Engine and the Analytical Engine.
