>"I wonder about that..." says Archer. "I think, if he could have gotten Charles and you and me, or even just you and Charles, he would have done it. The opportunity was just too good to pass up otherwise."

>....Maybe? It seems unlikely this would be a "feature" of the Servant himself, although it would definitely be a telling quirk. It is possible that the Master ordered one kill only? But you would have no real idea why they would do that outside of some odd sense of honor. It feels unlikely.

Archer regards is with some mild suspicion at first, then takes a slice and bites it it. "Huh, this is different," says Archer. "We didn't have most of these things back in my time... Not bad at all, even if it's greasy as boar. No idea how you can get bread to do that."

>Gavrilo Princip is commonly agreed to be the man to set the events of World War 1 into motion with the assassination of the heir to the throne of Austria-Hungary. The assassination can best be described as an immense stroke of luck on his part. As a member of the Black Hand organization, he sought Bosnian independence and for the formation of a Yugoslavian state, and is frequently regarded as a hero among Bosnians and European anarchists to this this day. The assassination of of Archduke Ferdinand nearly failed, and it was only due to mere chance that Princip was able to complete the deed before being arrested; after the initial attempt had been botched and the Archduke happened to stop near a cafe where Princip was resting. From there began a series of events that would lead to the bloodiest war of its time. He would later die in prison from tuberculosis, having been too young to assign the death penalty under the law, after having lost his right arm to the disease.

a point: EX does not mean 11/10. it means orange/10. rather than do things better than everything else, it does things that shouldn't be possible; so based on Princip, I imagine it's related to how his bullshit luck allowed him to still get the shot in the end. What, shitty cyanide pill, was at a cafe the Archduke happened to go to after for some reason deciding to go off route after the first failed attempt? he can probably domino effect things into motion REALLY well

>Luck of the Devil
>The tenuous quality of luck sometimes works strongly in the favor of the bearer of this trait, but their charmed life may betray them.
>Edge of History
>This noble phantasm exists less as a tool and more as a concept around the user. With this, absolute focus is drawn upon a small action, whose effects shall not be denied and will ripple out to affect surrounding events. This will build up to alter the course of history on a large scale. However, much like a natural disaster born from the single flap of a butterfly's wings a half world away, the final form of the resulting events cannot be known until they have happened. The unusual focus of this Noble Phantasm means that it cannot be used in a repeated manner until the effects of the previous use have radiated out to some degree.

Well. If you need something to kick off a series of events, murdering a prolific billionaire is one hell of a place to start. Jesus christ.
