What is Fairy Tail?
What is Fairy Tail?
Fairy Tail first debuted by Hiro Mashima as a manga in 2006, where it ran until 2017, and spawned an anime series with 328 episodes and two original movies. Fairy Tail follows Natsu Dragneel and the guild he is a part of, the titular Fairy Tail, as he looks for his missing father, Igneel – who is a dragon, by the way. He teams up with a ragtag band of allies as they take on various jobs for the guild, and ultimately find themselves in several potentially world-ending scenarios.
Who is Fairy Tail?
In the Fairy Tail guild, there are quite a few faces you’ll be seeing often. Familiarise yourself with the main members of the guild below!
Natsu is the main protagonist, and he is driven by a desire to find his missing father. Raised as a Mage with the power to take down dragons, Natsu is immune to fire thanks to his Fire Dragon Slayer Magic. He’s cheerful and will do anything for his friends, and he’s always up for a challenge – assuming it won’t cause his motion sickness to flare up. Underneath his cheerful personality is a secret that not even he knows of.
Happy is Natsu’s best friend, and is an anthropomorphic cat. Natsu’s dad is a dragon, so this isn’t all that weird. Happy uses Aera to grow wings, and he sometimes carries Natsu, who doesn’t get motion sickness as long as it’s Happy who is flying him around. He’s happy, just as his name would lead you to believe, and absolutely adores Natsu. What is his origin story, we wonder?
One of Fairy Tail’s newest members, Lucy dreams of publishing a novel based on her adventures with the guild. She is able to summon Celestial Spirits, and is able to hold her own in battle. She makes sure not to be as destructive as other guild members though, who often diminish their rewards based on how reckless they are. She’s the voice of reason, and although she’s often exasperated, she would never give up on her time with her new family.
A strong rival to Natsu which brings about the question – what’s stronger, ice or fire? They’re both a part of the same guild, and often go on missions together, but Gray is a stark opposite to Natsu. Calm and composed, Gray acts as a model poster boy for the guild, other than when he is habitually stripping thanks to his training.
Erza, also known as Titania, is an S-Class swordswoman, and widely acknowledged as the guild’s most powerful female Mage. It takes a while for Erza to come out of her shell, but she does as she continues adventuring with Fairy Tail, and has a lot of compassion for her teammates. Her magic, The Knight, allows her to quickly switch between different weapons and armours, which grant her different, incredible powers.
A shockingly young dragon slayer, Wendy was also trained by a dragon from a young age. Her Sky Dragon Slayer Magic allows her to heal others from whatever injuries or ailments they may have – she effectively acts as Team Natsu’s healer. She can also use wind offensively, or to boost others, which makes her invaluable to the group. Wendy can be a little shy and awkward, but there’s nothing that can stop her from fighting for Fairy Tail.
Like Happy, Carla is also an arthropathic cat, and best friend to Wendy. Serious and restrained, Carla is the opposite to the happy and carefree Happy. She acts differently with Wendy than anyone else. Carla dresses as a human, in stark contrast to Happy, who, well, doesn’t dress up much at all! Carla is also able to use Aera, along with a slew of other abilities.
