Hiatory

Lancer is really Cu Chulainn , a hero from the Ulster Cycle of Irish mythology. He is a demigod, the offspring of a mortal woman, Dechtire, and the deity, Lugh. Although born with the name Sétanta, he adopted Cú Chulainn after killing the hound of a smith, Culann, and promising to replace the slain canine while another was reared. Cú is the Irish Gaelic word for "hound." During Cú Chulainn's expedition to the Land of Shadows in Scotland, he trained under a sorceress named Scáthach and acquired his signature weapon, the cursed javelin, Gae Bolg. With his heroic exploits, Cú Chulainn acquired a reputation of savagery in battle, though he was a well-meaning and courageous young man. However, above all, he is best known for keeping his word. He once tells Shirou that he also could have been summoned as a Berserker class because of his savagery. His Noble Phantasm is Gae Bolg, a cursed lance that inflicts wounds that do not heal. When its name is called, it reverses cause and effect to strike the opponent's heart without fail. The proper use is as a throwing weapon and has such piercing power that it has only been stopped, at great cost, by Archer utilizing Rho Aias. 
 
The Fifth Holy Grail War
 
Lancer was originally summoned by Bazett Fraga McRemitz, an Irish representative of the Mage's Association. However, Kirei Kotomine murdered Bazett, and severed her left arm; he then used her stolen command seals to gain the allegiance of Lancer and enter into the 5th Holy Grail War. Lancer is disgruntled at having to serve a cowardly Master, but he obeys Kirei's wishes faithfully. Kirei originally had Lancer serve on reconnaissance, scouting out the locations of other Masters and gaging how dangerous their Servants were. During his fight with Archer Lancer noticed that Shiro  Emiya had witnessed his entire battle. To preserve secrecy of the Holy Grail War, Lancer tracks and silences Shirō by stabbing him through his heart.

 
Later, Lancer realizes that Shiro has recovered from his mortal wound, so he tracks and corners the young mage within the cellar of his home. Just before getting killed again, Shiro is rescued by a recently summoned Saber, who battles back Lancer and engages him in combat. Outmatched, Lancer flees the scene just before the arrival of Archer and then Berserker. During the rest of the story, Lancer is generally inactive. In Fate, Lancer aided Shiro against Gilgamesh, and was killed by Gilgamesh for betraying Kirei.
 
In Unlimited Blade Works, Kotomine uses a command seal to force Lancer to kill himself, but not before Lancer killed Kotomine as well. Finally, in Heaven's Feel, Lancer is defeated early in the war by Zoken and True Assassin.

In Fate/hollow ataraxia, Lancer's role is expanded far beyond Fate/stay night. He is normally spotted fishing at the Fuyuki docks, but he is frequently seen wandering the city or at his part-time job as a grocer. He is quite amiable, chatting with many of the former Holy Grail War participants, and is well liked. He makes no attempt to combat the Shadow Wolf Beasts during the Fuyuki eclipse, instead quietly presiding over Avenger's ascent into Heaven's Feel from a distance.
