courtesy of site shall not be named >While Koyanskaya definitely managed to disguise herself and butter up to Gordolf, Father Kotomine was supposedly a proper clergyman sent in by the Church. Father Kotomine should have also had no contact with Gordolf prior to their first meeting on ship en route to the South Pole/Chaldea. Gordolf confirms this, raising that they didn’t interact much either. Holmes deduces that they had carried out their scheme through an information network we had no knowledge of. Holmes further adds, that in the Church, there is no such figure by the name of Kotomine Kirei.
At least in the year 2017, there is no such name in the Church’s roster. Mashu is shocked, and wonders if Kotomine Kirei was just a fake alias, but Holmes ascertains that such a person did indeed exist. However, Kotomine had passed away in Japan during 2004 according to Chaldea’s records. Da Vinci ponders if the Priest you had met back then was Pseudo-Servant,3 or perhaps the Heroic Spirit had possessed the corpse. But is such a thing even possible?
………It’s possible that the corpse was used as the vessel for the summoning, but I’d like to affirm that there isn’t a Heroic Spirit that would do such a thing. Well for an exception, there may have been a Pseudo-Servant that developed into a Heroic Spirit due to the vessel being a corpse.
But even if that’s the case, there’s another major problem. The report from the Church was written as such: “Kotomine Kirei’s corpse, was burned without a trace during his death. For that reason we were unable to retrieve his body”. In short, Father Kotomine doesn’t have any physical flesh left in this world. At least with regards to our world.
