Dark guilds are guilds in the Fairy Tail series that act without consent of the Magic Council. They are mainly all criminal organizations, and serve as antagonists in the series.

Here be spoilers.

    open/close all folders 

The first dark guild of the series. The members of this guild seek out the demon flute Lullaby and try to use its deadly music to launch an assassination plot against the guild masters of Fiore.

Erigor / Grim Reaper

Affiliation: Eisenwald (former), Reborn Oración Seis
Magic: Wind Magic, Storm Magic
Weapons/Equipment: Scythe

Click here for spoiler 

The ace and acting leader of Eisenwald. He is skilled at using Wind Magic to attack, defend, and trap opponents.

Post-Time Skip, Erigor appears as a member of the Reborn Oración Seis under the name "Grim Reaper". In exchange for his memories of his entire life, he gains control over weather.

Voiced by: Koichi Tochika (JP), Jonathan Brooks (EN)

  • Arc Villain: Of the Lullaby arc.
  • Badass Longcoat: Wears one when he reappears in the anime, which is also the one that Jellal wears later on.
  • Bald of Evil: Post-Time Skip.
  • Blow You Away.
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: As Grim Reaper.
  • Do Not Touch the Funnel Cloud: The whole point of his Wind Wall spell is that the visible part is definitely not something you want to touch. His Storm Mail spell works under a similar principle, but as a subversion there's still a great deal of wind blowing around the funnel itself.
  • Elemental Rock-Paper-Scissors: Holds this in Natsu's face when they fight. Backfires spectacularly in the end.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: Memories of his True Companions from Eisenwald are the first thing to stir when his brainwashing starts to fade. Even in his mental realm, Erigor pictures his old self standing besides the silhouettes of his Eisenwald guildmates.
  • Flight: One of the few characters who can do so unaided by wings.
  • Improbable Weapon User: Post Time Skip, he decides to conclude his duel with Bickslow and Wendy by dropping a whole herd of cows on them.
  • Laser-Guided Amnesia: He gives up his memories in exchange for power over the Time Skip. As such, he doesn't remember anything about being Erigor of Eisenwald.
  • Mind-Control Eyes: As a member of the Reborn Oración Seis, his eyes are shown to be a dull, glassy gray. His personality is also much more subdued than in his earlier appearances.
  • Red Baron: Earned the title "Shinigami" due to his only taking requests to kill people. Ironically, he looks more like The Grim Reaper. This incidentally becomes his codename when he joins the Reborn Oración Seis.
  • Revive Kills Zombie: When Wendy realizes that the memories of his past are physically hurting him, she keeps on casting healing spells on him until he recovers all his memories, freeing him from Oración Seis' grasp.
  • Scarf of Asskicking: In his first appearance.
  • Sinister Scythe: Part of his death motif. After the Time Skip, his scythe seems necessary for his Storm Magic.
  • Tattooed Crook
  • Took a Level in Badass: After the Time Skip he's become an official member of the Reborn Oración Seis, looks a lot more like the Grim Reaper, and can throw whole hurricanes on people with ease. Too bad he also loses his memory.
  • Wake-Up Call Boss: He was the first antagonist that Natsu couldn't just bash into a wall with raw determination.
  • Walking Shirtless Scene
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: After his defeat, Lucy fears that Erigor will come back to take revenge. However, he's never seen and barely even mentioned again after that.
    • The anime rectifies this. He reappears in the Nirvana arc as part of one of the many dark guilds controlled by Oración Seis, and has a rematch with Natsu. However, the drastic differences in their power are made apparent, and he's taken out in less than half an episode. He later appears after the Time Skip as a full-blown member of the Reborn Oración Seis.
  • Worthy Opponent: During his anime-only rematch with Natsu, he admits that what he'd really hoped for was to fight Natsu again and win.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair


Affiliation: Eisenwald (former)
Magic: Shadow Magic, Dispelling Magic

Erigor's right-hand man. He uses shadow magic to blend into his surroundings.

Gato & Zato

Affiliation: Naked Mummy
Magic: Unknown

Top: Gato. Bottom: Zato.

A pair of monkey-like brothers who run Naked Mummy together.

Gato is voiced by: Hiroki Goto (JP), Cris George (EN)
Zato is voiced by: Tomoyuki Higuchi (JP), Paul Giovanni Ramirez (EN)

    Oración Seis 
One of the three most powerful dark guilds that make up the Balam Alliance, which unites the dark guilds. Though it is one of the smallest guilds in the series, comprised of only six members, it lives up to its strength, forcing Fairy Tail to team up with three other official guilds just to fight it. This guild seeks Nirvana, an ancient magic that switches light with darkness.

In the anime-exclusive, post-Time Skip "Key of the Starry Heavens" filler arc, most of the members of Oración Seis return with a few new additions, becoming the "Reborn Oración Seis". Their goal is to assemble the Infinity Clock, an artifact that distorts one's perception of time in order to instill chaos throughout the world.

Chapter 364 reveals that they've been freed from prison. They apparently don't have a single goal now, instead, their members seem to each have a individual goal.


Affiliation: Oración Seis
Magic: Darkness Magic, Organic Link Magic, Self-Destruction Spell, Telepathy, Requip, Archive
Weapons/Equipment: Kurodoa, Knife

Click here for spoiler 

The master of Oración Seis. He seeks the legendary magic Nirvana to destroy the official wizard guilds in the world and create a new world order. He has a split personality named Zero, who just wants to destroy everything.

In Chapter 364, he has been betrayed by Cobra, to the apathy of every other member of the guild.

Voiced by: Tetsu Inada (JP), Philip Weber (EN)

Cobra/ Erik

Affiliation: Oración Seis, Reborn Oración Seis
Magic: Dragon Slayer Magic (Poison Dragon Slayer), Dragon Force, Sound Magic

Click here for spoiler 

Brain's right-hand man who keeps a giant flying snake named Cubellios as a pet, and has ultra-sensitive hearing. He is also the Poison Dragon Slayer whose magic was implanted in him by Brain.

Post-Time Skip, Cobra sacrifices his eyesight in exchange for magic that lets him amply any sounds he hears to produce destructive sonic attacks. He also searches relentlessly for Cubellios, whom he was separated from seven years ago.

He returns later as the seventh Dragon Slayer needed to defeat future Rogue's seven dragons. He is also the reason Oración Seis was set free by Doranbalt, in exchange for intel on Tartarus.

Voiced by: Atsushi Imaruoka (JP), Jarrod Greene (EN)

  • A Man and His Giant Purple Snake
  • An Offer You Can't Refuse: Made one of these to Doranbalt: He'd spill the beans on Tartarus if he agreed to free Oración Seis. Doranbalt was desperate, and had no choice but to accept. Though as insurance Doranbalt had Jellal hook up with them to keep an eye on the group.
  • Antagonist Abilities: Telepathy, he can "hear" his opponent thoughts.
  • Badass Baritone
  • Badass Cape: After the Time Skip.
  • Badass Longcoat
  • The Bus Came Back: First in the anime, and later in the manga.
  • Brown Note/Make Me Wanna Shout: Post-Time Skip, he's improved his Sound Magic to the point that he can make walls of sound.
  • Bullying a Dragon: He taunts Natsu by telling him dragons no longer exist in the world. He gets an authentic-sounding dragon's roar for his trouble.
  • Catch Phrase: "I can hear you."
  • Career-Ending Injury: It's implied that this happened to him when Natsu used a Dragon's Roar to blow out his eardrums thus rendering him deaf. He made a Deal with the Devil to get his hearing back.
  • The Dragon: Quite literally.
    • Co-Dragons: With Midnight.
    • The Starscream: As soon as Oración Seis was free, he wastes no time in betraying Brain. Nobody else in the guild gave a damn, with Midnight basically saying 'good riddance.'
  • Eleventh Hour Ranger
  • Enemy Mine: He teams up with Natsu against Future Rogue and the dragons in the Grand Magic Games arc.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: His relationship with Cubellios is a prime example.
  • Evil Red Head
  • Finger-Licking Poison: He eats poison, because he's the Poison Dragon Slayer.
  • "Get Out of Jail Free" Card: Jellal requests his temporary release from jail so he can help his fellow Dragon Slayers, well, slay dragons. He returns to jail soon afterward... only to be freed again, this time for real and along with the rest of the Oración Seis, by giving info about Tartarus to Doranbolt.
  • Good Scars, Evil Scars: Has a scar over his left eye after the Time Skip.
  • Handicapped Badass: He returns with a missing eye after the Time Skip. It's later revealed that the present eye no longer works.
  • Heel-Face Turn: He returns to help Natsu and the other Dragon Slayers to defeat the seven Dragons who came through the Eclipse Gate.
  • Ignored Enemy: When Natsu and Happy stop to squabble for a moment. Talking isn't a free action in the manga, but in the anime, possibly to make his Alas, Poor Villain moment more effective, he noticeably pauses in his attacks and has a sort of soft expression while looking at Cubellios.
  • I Will Find You: He promises to find Cubellios after they are separated over the Time Skip. He succeeds, but they're not reunited for long before the council shows up to arrest him.
  • In the Back: He survives, though.
  • Manly Tears: After being shot by Brain.
  • Mr. Exposition: He's surprisingly well-informed about Tartarus. He trades this information for the original Oración Seis's release out of prison.
  • Oh Crap: He didn't quite catch that Midnight was summoning an illusion, and thus his reaction to Zero waking up and 'killing' Jellal was this.
  • Pointy Ears: Apparently his Listening Magic eventually causes this.
  • Revenge: He instantly attacks Brain after the group is released from prison for 1) shooting him in the back for the You Have Outlived Your Usefulness during the Nirvana arc and 2) Seeing that he saw all of Oricion Seis as nothing more then his pawns. He does apologize to Midnight for this who says he was fine with it.
  • Shoo the Dog: He does this to Kinana/Cubellios when the council shows up so she won't be arrested with him.
  • Slasher Smile
  • Snakes Are Sexy
  • Technicolor Toxin: Cubellios is violet and her bitten victims turn purple. The scales of Cobra's Dragon Slayer mode are violet, but the poison he creates is crimson.
  • Telepathy: Cobra can read minds because his hearing is that good. This becomes his weakness when Natsu unleashes a Dragon's Roar at point blank range, deafening him.
    • Again, post-Time Skip, where he is distracted upon hearing Kinana/Cubellios' voice, allowing Erza to finish him off.
  • The Dog Bites Back: After waiting 7 years for the opportunity he kills Brain for shooting him in the back for a failure.
  • You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: Brain takes him out just for losing to Natsu. He survives, however... and later returns the favor after the group is released from prison.

Racer/ Sawyer

Affiliation: Oración Seis, Reborn Oración Seis
Magic: Slowing Magic, Vehicle Magic
Weapons/Equipment: Dagger

Click here for spoiler 

A speed-obsessed wizard who uses magic to move faster than the human eye. Or at least that's how his magic appears to others; his true power is slowing down time for everything around him.

Post-Time Skip, Racer improves his Slowing Magic and achieves his desire for genuine speed, but sacrifices his own humanity and "heart" in the process and becomes a twisted shell of his former self.

Voiced by: Junji Majima (JP), Jeff Plunk (EN)

Hoteye/Richard Buchanan

Affiliation: Oración Seis
Magic: Earth Magic (Liquid Ground), Heaven's Gaze

A greedy man who believes that money can solve all the world's problems. His Heaven's Gaze ability allows him to see through solid objects, and he can transform the ground around him into liquid. His true identity is Richard Buchanan, the older brother of Erza's childhood friend Wally.

Voiced by: Kazuya Ichijo (JP), Chris Cason (EN)

Angel / Sorano Agria

Affiliation: Oración Seis, Reborn Oración Seis
Magic: Celestial Spirit Magic, Angel Magic

Click here for spoiler 

A very skilled Celestial Spirit wizard who controls spirits such as Gemini to read the minds of her enemies. However, she sees her spirits as little more than tools, and has no trouble mistreating them.

Post-Time Skip, Angel learns Angel Magic, which allow her to summon angelic beings that gradually eat away at her own lifespan so that when she dies, she will become an angel herself.

She is also Yukino's older sister Sorano, taken away to the Tower of Heaven by Zeref cultists at a young age. They haven't seen each other since.

Voiced by: Fuyuka Ooura (JP), Lindsay Seidel (EN)

Midnight / Brain II / Macbeth

Affiliation: Oración Seis, Reborn Oración Seis
Magic: Reflector, Darkness Magic

Click here for spoiler 

Brain's adoptive son who is almost always shown sleeping. He uses Reflector magic to evade his opponents' attacks and create illusions.

Post-Time Skip, Midnight takes over his father's legacy as leader of the Reborn Oración Seis. He develops Brain's knack for inventing new spells to suit his needs, leading him to redub himself "Brain II".

Voiced by: Kouki Uchiyama (JP), Micah Solusod (EN)


Affiliation: Oración Seis, Reborn Oración Seis
Magic: Darkness Magic, Lightning Magic, Slot Magic (Jackpot)

Brain's staff, which has a mind of its own.

Grim Reaper/Erigor

Imitatia/Michelle Lobster

See Fairy Tail Anime Only.

    Grimoire Heart 
The strongest of the three dark guilds that make up the Balam Alliance. The members of this guild hope to awaken the power of the black wizard Zeref for their own selfish desires. Their search leads them to war against Fairy Tail on Sirius Island, where Zeref lives.


Affiliation: Fairy Tail (former), Grimoire Heart
Magic: Grimoire Law, Amaterasu, Chain Magic, Bullet Magic, Requip, Devil's Eye

The master of Grimoire Heart. He wishes to uncover the origins of magic, and believes that awakening Zeref will give him that power. He was once called Precht, the second master and cofounder of Fairy Tail who named Makarov his successor.

Voiced by: Masashi Hirose (JP), John Swasey (EN)

Bluenote Stinger

Affiliation: Grimoire Heart
Magic: Gravity Magic

The Deputy Commander of Grimoire Heart. Despite his rank, he could care less about Zeref and just wants to find the powerful Fairy Glitter spell sealed within former Fairy Tail master Mavis's grave. He uses Gravity Magic to immobilize his opponents.

Voiced by: Shiro Saita (JP), Chuck Huber (EN)

  • Badass: Anyone who can engage a severely pissed-off Gildarts in a protracted battle more than deserves the title.
  • Battle Aura: Like Gildarts', it can be felt across the entire island. And it has enough physical presence to deflect the rain falling down on him.
  • The Dragon
    • Co-Dragons: Along with Ultear.
    • Dragon with an Agenda: Cares little for Fairy Tail and Zeref, the latter of which is goal of his guild. He seeks the grave of the first Fairy Tail master, Mavis Vermilion, in order to acquire the magic "Fairy Glitter".
  • The Dreaded: As Lahar puts it:
    "Not even a weed remains in the roads that he's walked...that's the level of magic user he is."
  • Duel Boss: Once Gildarts shows up, everyone clears out to give them room to do battle. Natsu wants to stay and watch, but they drag him away anyway.
    • Good Old Fisticuffs: Said battle quickly devolves into this for both Bluenote and Gildarts. Until Azuma takes control of the Sirius Tree, that is.
  • Evil Counterpart: For Gildarts.
  • Face Framed in Shadow: Until he steps in.
  • Gag Nose
  • Gonk
  • Gravity Master
  • Oh Crap: He has two of them. The first one is when he realizes that Gildarts is strong enough to pose an actual threat to him, and the second one is when Gildarts crushes his Black Hole spell.
  • One-Man Army: According to his reputation.
  • A Twinkle in the Sky:How he is defeated by Gildarts.
  • Villain Ball: He had Gildarts on the ropes due to Azuma taking over the Sirius Island tree and draining the Faires of their magic. He could've easily killed him with his black hole power. What does he do? Just stomps on Gildarts and gloats like an idiot before Erza manages to turn the power back on, allowing Gildarts to get back into the fight.
  • The Worf Effect: Yes, Gildarts is said to be the strongest wizard in Fairy Tail, and yes, Gildarts is badass, but Bluenote is defeated in one hit once Gildarts' drained magic returns. And this is supposedly when Bluenote "stops playing around". To fair, before Gildarts showed up, Natsu's group couldn't even touch him and Cana, equipped with Fairy Glitter, the strongest magic of the Fairy Tail guild, gets smacked aside like it was nothing. Plus you can't exactly do much when your opponent can crush a black hole.

Seven Kin of Purgatory

A group of wizards who were all taught by Hades to learn a form of Lost Magic, ancient spells that are rarely practiced out of fear of their power.
  • Hoist by Their Own Petards: Almost all of the Kin are defeated as a result of having their own magic turned against them in one way or another: Zancrow by his flames, Caprico by his body snatching, Kain by his doll, Merudy by her sensory link, Azuma by his decision to use the Sirius Tree's magic, and Rusty Rose by defeating Elfman and allowing him to be used as Bickslow's trump card. Even Ultear's defeat is a result of having helped melt Ur's ice back in the Galuna Island arc.
  • Lost Magic: All of them use some kind of Lost Magic, which are stated by Hades to be the magics closest to the source of magic.
  • Quirky Miniboss Squad
  • Tykebomb: All of them are said to have been raised and trained by Hades himself, with Caprico as the exception.

Ultear Milkovich

See Fairy Tail Other Guilds.


Affiliation: Grimoire Heart
Magic: Great Tree Arc

A man who uses the Great Tree Arc to control trees and harness the power of magic hidden deep within the earth.

Voiced by: Hiroshi Shirokuma (JP), Ray Hurd (EN)

  • Almighty Janitor: Implied to be stronger than Ultear, who claims to be the strongest of the Seven Kin; definitely as Ezra has to go all out to beat him.
  • Ambiguously Brown
  • And I Must Scream: Turns into a tree as a result of overusing his magic.
  • Anti-Villain: Type I, compared to the other six.
  • Badass
  • Beard of Evil
  • Blood Knight: He just wants a good fight, and will do whatever it takes to get it.
  • Death Seeker: Possibly. He seems just a smidge too happy Erza beats him.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: During his fight with Erza, he admits that he's uncomfortable with the methods of his compatriots, and the only reason he does so here is that he was ordered to by Master Hades.
  • Expy: Possesses a strong resemblance to Amarant Coral from Final Fantasy IX.
  • Facial Markings: A stripe from the top of his forehead to the middle of his left cheek.
  • Graceful Loser: He calls the members of Fairy Tail "magnificent", openly admiring their bonds and the strength of their conviction, when he is defeated by Erza.
  • Gratuitous Latin: Several of his attack names are Latin:
    • "Folium Sica" (Leaf Dagger)
    • "Ramus Sica" (Branch Dagger)
    • "Terra Clamare" (Cries of the Earth)
  • Green Thumb: His brand of Lost Magic, the Great Tree Arc. He uses it to take control of the magical power of Sirius Island through the Sirius Tree, which had given Fairy Tail immortality and a boost to their magic.
  • Having a Blast: The explosions shown as his primary attacks are created by condensing the magic of the earth into the fruit of his trees.
  • Hero Killer: He doesn't really want to kill anyone, but fits the trope otherwise. In just the Sirius Island arc he defeats Wendy, Doranbalt, Panther Lily, Carla, Lisanna, and Mirajane while she uses Satan Soulnote . Plus he takes a full-powered Erza to the limit.
  • Kick the Dog: He places a timed explosion on Lisanna, saying that Mirajane has that long to defeat him before her sister dies.
  • My Master, Right or Wrong: But follows his orders out of Undying Loyalty.
  • Pet the Dog: Very slight, and directed at the same people he had a Kick the Dog moment with earlier, but he shows some regret when he sees Lisanna cry over Mirajane's body. He then leaves them instead of finishing them off.
  • Punch Clock Villain: Unlike several of the other Kin, Azuma doesn't have a bone to pick with any of the Fairy Tail members besides being told to attack them by Hades and fighting strong people.
  • Shirtless Scene
  • The Stoic
  • When Trees Attack: His secondary fighting style.
  • Worthy Opponent: He considers Erza this.

Rusty Rose

Affiliation: Grimoire Heart
Magic: Arc of Embodiment

A poetic young man who uses the Arc of Embodiment to create any object he desires from his imagination.

Voiced by: Kazuma Horie (JP), Justin Locklear (EN)

  • Adjusting Your Glasses
  • Anime Hair: Albeit one that's believable. His hair looks like a massive, overly-gelled pompadour.
  • Antagonist Abilities: Reality Warper via Your Mind Makes It Real
  • Arrogant Wizard Guy: He thinks of his magic as invincible, and comes to believe that all of Fairy Tail is weak after he beats Elfman and Evergreen.
  • Bishōnen
  • Evil Counterpart: Arguably, to Fried. Both are stoic bishonen with a nigh-unbeatable power (and understandable pride in such) with epic hair. But while Fried is quiet and mostly a nice guy when he's not on the attack, Rusty Rose is a douche who loves to talk.
  • Evil Is Hammy: Even while being The Stoic, he acts highly overdramatic. Once he becomes less stoic, it gets worse.
  • Four Eyes, Zero Soul
  • Imagination Based Superpower: By definition, his powers are this. They allow him to fight with literally anything he can imagine, from pegasus shoes to impenetrable shields, and from glasses to giant towers of magical energy, all without any need for resources or any noticeable side-effects. Because there's no obvious way to counter someone who can fight with anything he can, Evergreen and Elfman are utterly curb stomped by him once he stops playing with them and it takes some seriously creative uses of magic for the guild to finally beat him.
  • Informed Flaw: There are supposedly serious side-effects of his incredibly powerful magic, but they are never shown or even explained, and they don't stop him kicking serious amounts of ass.
  • Jerkass: Good god, is he a dick. Unlike Azuma, he has no respect for Fairy Tail, and he takes pleasure in hurting others. Then there's the fact that he thinks the idea of killing off 90% of the world's population is a good idea.
  • Luckily My Shield Will Protect Me: Summoned into his left hand.
  • Mundane Utility: Uses his powers to make a new pair of glasses. Justified given the situation.
  • Nice Shoes
  • Oh Crap: When he winds up fighting both Fried and Bickslow and experiences fear for the first time. It doesn't last long though, as he uses the fear as more inspiration for his powers.
    • He has an even more epic one later when, once Azuma restores the magical power of Fairy Tail, he gets his ass handed to him by the combined effort of Fried, Bickslow, Lisanna and Elfman.
  • Psychotic Smirk: Once he starts being Not So Stoic.
  • Reality Warper
  • Scary Shiny Glasses
  • Shapeshifter Weapon: Transformed his right arm into an extendable claw.
  • Shipper on Deck: He seems to be one for Elfman and Evergreen in a very weird, twisted sort of way.
  • Smug Super: The guy's got quite the ego on him, and it's pretty much deserved. He wiped the floor with Elfman and Evergreen, and Fried, Bixlow, and Lisanna needed to be pretty imaginative in the way they used their magic in order to defeat him.
  • Squishy Wizard: His body isn't particularly strong nor is he particularly agile. Once his magic is disrupted long enough and one gets past the defenses he's layered himself with, he's out.
  • The Stoic
    • Not So Stoic: He laughs crazily at the prospect of living in a world where non-magic users cannot survive. And then there's the fact that he's reduced to Tears of Fear at the sight of Zeref when he's angry.
  • Summon Magic: Apparently of the "Guardian Saint" variety.
  • Superpower Lottery: He can create anything he imagines for no apparent drawbacks.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: It's a blink-and-you-miss-it scene, but Zeref spared his and Kain's lives, as they are both seen alive and well during Acnologia's destruction of Sirius Island. Despite this, there has been no word whatsoever as to what has become of them since then.
  • White Hair, Black Heart

     Succubus Eye 
A Dark Guild that makes its appearance after the Time Skip. Notable in that it has a role on the Taiyou village arc and that Minerva is one of its members. Also notable in that it is a subordinate guild to Tartarus.


Affiliation: Succubus Eye
Magic: Law of Regression.

The first member of Succubus Eye, with most of the details about him unknown. He is Minerva's superior, and he has the ability to make people regress back into children. Also, he's not human; he's actually a demon summoned from the Book of Zeref by Tartarus.
  • Always a Bigger Fish: How does he finally lose? That flying, one-eyed monster from before flies down and eats him.
  • Attack Backfire: Due to the way Maker Magic works, Doriate's power ended up being more helpful to Gray than harmful, in spite of weakening his power.
  • Berserk Button: When Gray, despite being turned back into a child, is able to fight back and even talk down at him, Doriate gets so angry he loses focus on the Law of Regression and assumes his demon form to attack Gray.
  • Brown Note: In his demon form, his Law of Regression can be used as a sound wave so that instead of only being able to affect the enemy in front of him, it was able to regress everybody in the Sun Village back to their childhood. The downside is that it doesn't discriminate between friend or foe, as seen when it hits his partner Minerva.
  • Combat Pragmatist: He turns his victims into children so that they'll be easier to deal with. He also doesn't waste any time casting it once an enemy is in sight.
  • Death by Irony: After wanting to eat Gray, he himself gets eaten by a giant, flying monster.
  • Does Not Know His Own Strength: He can still use his magic while in his One-Winged Angel form, but he is no longer capable of aiming (or he just doesn't bother to do so anymore), causing everyone - including Minerva and Sylph Labyrinth - to get hit with Law of Regression.
  • Fangs Are Evil: Even with his mouth shut, he has a lot of fangs jutting out.
  • Fountain of Youth: His magic hits his victims with this. According to him, his magic actually affects the magic power of the victim, and their turning into a child is a secondary effect.
  • Foreshadowing: Why was he subconsciously avoiding the ice around him? The ice was made via Devil Slayer magic, which would hit beings like him For Massive Damage.
  • I'm a Humanitarian: If his attempt to eat Gray is any indication.
  • Killed Off for Real
  • Kryptonite Is Everywhere: Bordering on Too Dumb to Live, as the area he was fighting in was coated in ice that would severely damage him.
  • No Badass to His Valet: He's likely aware that Minerva is the former ace of Sabertooth, but that doesn't change the fact she is still a newbie in her current guild.
  • One-Winged Angel: When he gets really angry he hulks out into a huge demon. On the bright side, he's too angry to keep up the Law of Regression in this state.
  • Our Demons Are Different: He's a demon from the Book of Zeref.
  • Status Buff: Law of Regression's primary effect is to lower the opponent's abilities; the transformation into a child is a side effect.
  • Would Hurt a Child: He definitely has no problem with beating up adults with the bodies of children. We've never seen him fight actual kids, but given his personality, he'd probably attack children like he would any other.
  • Weak, but Skilled: Subverted. Gray assumes he uses Law Of Regression to weaken his enemies as a means to make up for his somewhat average power, which seems to match up to how the fight was going. Then he reveals his true colors as a powerful demon.

Minerva Orland

See Fairy Tail Other Guilds.

The last of the three guilds that form (or formed) the dreaded Balam Alliance that, until the end of the Sun Village arc, had no prominence on the story, unlike the other two guilds. This guild hadn't made any sort of appearance before the Time Skip, and as such, this guild comes off as the most enigmatic. Several of their members, including their Guild Master, are demons from the Book of Zeref.
  • Antagonist Abilities: So far many of the members has at least one of these.
  • Badass Crew: Let's see... one of them froze Atlas Flame solid, another made Minerva shit herself in terror just at the mere sight of her, another assassinated all but one of the Magic Council in one perfectly-executed terrorist attack, and their guild master is stated to be the most terrifying demon Zeref has ever created, and he even kicked Igneel's ass in a fight. Yeah, they're kind of scary.
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: It's implied that some of their members are this.
  • The Dreaded: Nobody knows anything about them, but everybody is terrified of picking a fight with them, and for good reason.
  • Kill All Humans: This appears to be their endgame. Tempester in particular even references the Humans Are Bastards speech that Zeref gave to Mavis, as well as the Bond One-Liner he delivered to Hades.
  • Knights of Cerebus: If you thought Grimoire Heart instantly turned the series Darker and Edgier as soon as they showed up, wait till you see these guys.
  • The Legions of Hell: See Our Demons Are Different.
  • The Magic Goes Away: This is their goal. They are assassinating Magic Council members because three of the members' lifeforce seals away "Face", a magic pulse bomb capable of wiping out all magic on the continent. Since Tartarus uses "Enchantment" instead of magic, this would allow them to wipe out humanity with ease. Ultimately foiled in the middle of their fight with Fairy Tail, as Wendy and Carla manage to destroy and implode Face before if can fire.
  • Meaningful Name: In Greek Mythology, Tartarus is an area of the Greek Underworld reserved to torment souls that are judged to be evil, making it the rough equivalent of hell in other religions. All of their high ranking members are demons from the Book of Zeref, who believe they are passing judgment on humans.
  • Nothing Is Scarier: Nobody knows anything about them other than that they're a dark guild. The exception to this is Cobra, who was once part of a dark guild himself.
  • One-Man Army: Each of them. Franmalth even lampshades this by saying that Zeref intentionally designed each demon to be able to take on the entire army of each country.
  • Orcuses On Their Throne: They did absolutely nothing on-screen before their own arc began, and were only mentioned in passing with almost nothing being known about them. And then they made their on-screen debut in a very big way.
  • Our Demons Are Different: Tatarus' high-ranking members are all demons from the Book of Zeref.
  • Puny Humans: Being demons, they look down on humans on principle, and it looks like they've got the power to back it up. Laxus actually being capable of beating the crap out of him really pissed off Tempester.
  • Puzzle Boss: So far, most of them are this. They're not particularly stronger than the rest of the Balam Alliance, but what makes them noticeably more difficult to handle than the last two is that a lot of their abilities require you to work out their weakness (with a bit of luck, in some cases) first before laying the smack down on them. And they are just as hard to figure out like many other Puzzle Boss examples. In other words, unless you figure out their weakness first, you pretty much have a snowball's chance in hell of winning. And that's not even getting into their Resurrective Immortality abilities yet...
  • Religion of Evil: Many who have witnessed their gatherings described them as a cult that worships demons. They're only partially correct; they don't worship demons, they are demons.
    • The Nine Demon Gates actually appear to worship Zeref himself (whom they refer to as 'Master'), with a shrine set up in his honor in their inner sanctum.
  • Resurrective Immortality: What's that? You thought you could simply kill them? You don't know much about demons, then.
    • This only works if they can return to Hell's Core. Mirajane takes advantage of this by destroying the entire lab.
  • Sorting Algorithm of Evil: They are by far the most dangerous Dark Guild in the series. They're also the last of the Balam Alliance to appear.
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: To a certain extent; they all seem to disagree with each other save Silver and Kyouka.
  • Tome of Eldritch Lore: They are believed to be the current owners of the Book of Zeref, and indeed, all of their high-ranking members are demons, including their Guild Master.
  • Unequal Rites: They uses "Curses"/"Enchantment" which is somehow different from the rest of the magic in the series. Jackal boasts that it's inherently superior.
  • Unwilling Demonization: They have the ability to turn their members into Demons and after they tried to do this to Mirajane it's implied that not all of their members were willing.
  • We Will Find You: Kyouka, and later Zeref himself, have stated that despite being demons that Zeref created, Tartarus has never actually met Zeref in person, and it's one of their life's dreams to finally get the chance to do so.
    • Blind Obedience: Which explains a lot of their actions and their lack of empathy for humanity. Kyouka pretty much flat out states they're only doing what they think Zeref would want of them.


Affiliation: Tartarus
Curse: Unknown

The Guild Master of Tartarus, whose name was revealed in Chapter 356. He is the most powerful demon found in the Book of Zeref and was stated to have handily defeated Igneel.
  • Blind Obedience: He wants to wipe out all of humanity pretty much because he thinks Zeref would approve.
  • Did You Just Punch Out Cthulhu?: Why, yes, he did! Atlas Flame stated that even Igneel couldn't defeat this guy.
  • The Dreaded: Atlas Flame is afraid of him, and his very name sends chills down Doranbalt's spine. Even Kyouka, a fellow demon and his subordinate, is visibly nervous when she is forced to wake him up after the Face project's failure.
  • I Will Find You: Zeref states to Natsu that Tartarus has never actually met their creator, and that E.N.D. himself has been trying to find Zeref for quite some time. However, Zeref also indicates that only he or Natsu will actually get to find Zeref in person; not both.
  • Names to Run Away From Really Fast: We don't even need to know what 'E.N.D.' stands for.
  • Orcus on His Throne: Kind of; the reason he hasn't made any kind of appearance yet is, because, apparently, he hasn't been summoned from his book quite yet. Marde Guille has been leading Tartarus in his stead.
  • Our Demons Are Different: He's said to be the most powerful demon Zeref ever created.
  • Undying Loyalty: To Zeref, to the point where he's willing to wipe out humanity for no other reason than because he thinks it's what Zeref wants.


Affiliation: Tartarus
Curse: Ice Devil Slayer Magic

The first member of Tartarus to appear and the one who was actually responsible for the Village's freezing. He is a very powerful Ice Wizard, utilizing Devil Slayer magic. He is also a demon from the Book of Zeref, a trait shared by all of the Nine Demon Gates of Tartarus. He also apparently has a connection to Gray.
  • Affably Evil: A pretty nice guy as far as Tartarus members go... just don't piss him off, as Natsu found out the hard way.
  • Badass: He froze an entire village full of Giants and the residual energy of a Fire Dragon solid, by himself. To put it even further, the group mistook his magic to be Iced Shell, one of the most powerful forms of ice magic, usually used as a suicide tactic. It wasn't; his magic is that powerful.
  • Berserk Button: He is rather cordial with Natsu at first and even thanks him for melting the Giants' Village since he froze it due to a misunderstanding. The moment Natsu mentions Gray's name since Silver smells similar to him, Silver freezes Natsu solid in an instant and coldly tells him not to say that 'disgusting name' again.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Froze Natsu solid with one wave of his hand. Natsu became another of Tartarus' prisoners for his trouble.
  • Demon Slaying: 'Devil Slayer' Magic. It hits For Massive Damage against demons, such as those from the Book of Zeref.
  • Did You Just Punch Out Cthulhu?: He ended up doing this to Atlas Flame's spirit to a degree on the assumption he was a demon, even though the being he attacked was a Dragon.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: He is first shown at the grave of someone in his debut, implying he was there to pay respects.
  • Good Scars, Evil Scars: He has a noticeable scar across the upper-left side of his face.
  • Handsome Lech: He shamelessly flirts with Kyouka. She seems more amused by it than anything.
  • Hunter of His Own Kind: Despite being a demon in a genocidal guild full of demons, he seems to actually hunt demons and apparently consume their souls.
  • An Ice Person: Ice Devil Slayer.
  • Knight Templar: Hinted at. He attacked Atlas Flame and froze him and the entire village along with it under the assumption that the Fire Dragon was a demon. Atlas Flame even referred to him as an exorcist.
  • Light Is Not Good: He has magic designed to kill demons, and he wears crosses as earrings. Despite this, he is a member of a Dark Guild.
  • Perma Stubble
  • Pet the Dog: Natsu and Lisanna were subjected to a Shameful Strip and thrown into a cell together. He later visits their cell and gives Lisanna a blanket to cover herself with.
  • Token Good Teammate: At least compared to the other eight Demon Gates. He hunts demons, and when the others all talk about their plan and how the current destruction they've caused is just the start, he's noticibly silent and going by his expression, he's less than thrilled. Even if he did freeze the Giant's Village, he did it because he thought Atlas Flame was a demon. He also assured a terrified messenger that he wouldn't bite just because he was disturbed.
    • He also MAY of been the one responsible for Cana's knowledge that a attack would occur at the guild and likewise may of dropped the Sword for Natsu to use. Franmalth actually points out this.
  • Voluntary Shapeshifting: Kyouka comments on him showing up in his 'human form,' implying his current, humanoid appearance isn't his true one.


Affiliation: Tartarus
Curse: Currently Unnamed

One of the Nine Demon Gates of Tartarus, who was tasked with recruiting 'soldiers' for Tartarus. She uses a currently unnamed type of reinforcement magic that greatly increases the power of any she casts it on... if they're powerful enough; according to Kyouka, her magic only aids those who already possess a great amount of power. Those that do not cannot withstand her overwhelming power and are instead transformed into paper dolls. She was told to go recruiting, so she began by visiting all of the subservient guilds under Tartarus and using her magic on their members. The mages of Succubus Eye weren't powerful enough to handle her reinforcement and were all turned into dolls, quite possibly leaving Minerva as the only surviving member. She is the second-in-command of Tartarus (after E.N.D.), with most of the other members reporting to her.
  • Absolute Cleavage: Side Boob included.
  • Agony Beam: She can manipulate her victims' sense of pain, making Cold-Blooded Torture even more effective. It's bad enough to reduce even Erza to a weeping mess.
  • Ambiguously Human: She has several bird features and she talks about how she wants to make humans stronger, implying she's some sort of monster. It's later confirmed that she is, in fact, a demon from the Book of Zeref, making this much less ambiguous.
  • Badass: She is a high-ranking member of Tartarus and she easily terrified Minerva.
  • Baleful Polymorph: Those too weak to withstand her power are transformed into paper dolls.
  • The Baroness: Biggest one in the series so far by a mile.
  • Break the Badass: When Minerva herself is in terror when she meets this lady, you know she's bad news.
  • Bullying a Dragon: Erza wasn't too happy about all that torture...
  • Cold-Blooded Torture: She does this to Erza for several straight chapters, ranging from flogging to Electric Torture, all amplified by her Agony Beam. And this while threatening to turn Mirajane into a demon if Erza didn't break. And then Erza got loose...
  • Cool Helmet: And it's Gem-Encrusted!
    • Cool Mask: Though her eyes and mouth are visible.
  • Cruel and Unusual Death: Those who are too weak for her reinforcement magic (like the mages of Succubus Eye) suffer this.
  • Cute Monster Girl: Though she is somewhat more monstrous than Seilah and Silver, she is still more human-looking than most of the other demons, with only her bird-like hands and feet marking her as a demon.
  • Dangerously Genre Savvy: After Crawford transfers the last surviving key to Face from Jellal to himself, she unceremoniously Back Stabs him, cutting out the middle man and unsealing Face instantaneously.
  • Dark Action Girl: She fought and won against Minerva, after all. She's also able to match Erza blow for blow.
  • Dominatrix: Carries a lot of these themes, especially after the implications with Seilah in Chapter 367.
  • The Dragon: Appears to be the de facto leader of the Nine Demon Gates, making her most likely this to E.N.D.
  • Expy: No, you're not the only one who noticed that her appearance and outfit are suspiciously similar to that of Frieza.
  • For the Evulz: Kyouka seems happy that Erza can't or won't tell her anything about Jellal since it means she can keep torturing her.
    • To put it further, she later states outright to Seilah that could have just used Seilah's power to pull the information out of Erza, but didn't want to because "there's no fun in that."
  • Harping On About Harpies: Her birdlike features give off this vibe, though she seems to be missing actual wings.
  • Hartman Hips: She has very large and shapely hips and thighs and doesn't mind wearing clothing that shows them off. She also has big breasts, but given that almost all girls in this verse have that, her bust doesn't stand out nearly as much as her hips.
  • The Heavy: Considering she appears to be Crawford's handler as well as coordinating Tartarus' assaults, she may very well be the second in command of Tartarus.
  • In the Back: Subjected Crawford to being Impaled with Extreme Prejudice. Fitting.
  • Lack of Empathy: Even Minerva was horrified by the callous way she dismissed all the people she just killed with the single argument, "they were too weak."
    • She shows just how far she is willing to go when she kidnaps Mirajane and Erza, torturing Erza and threatens to convert Mirajane into a demon unless Erza reveals where Jellal is. This despite the fact that Erza would have no way of knowing where he is.
  • Leotard of Power: And a very revealing one at that.
  • Magic Enhancement: Kyouka uses a brutal version of this. If the people she casts it on are strong, they'll get much stronger. If they aren't, they're turned into paper dolls. Apparently, nobody in Succubus Eye (save Minerva) was strong enough.
    • Happens to Minerva after she lost her fight with Kyouka, but Minerva impressed her enough to be recruited into Tartarus... as a demon.
  • No Sell: Being slammed through Cube so hard she comes out the other side at the point of a giant lance? That's nothing.
    Kyouka: "I quite like you."
  • Oh Crap: Let's just say she should have known how Erza would react once she was free.
  • Psycho Lesbian: The 'psycho' part is obvious, the 'lesbian' part a bit less so. She tells Seilah she's going to 'take care of her', and in a later scene, Seilah is shown in bed, with her Minidress of Power replaced with a Modesty Bedsheet, smiling.
  • Sadist: And holy shit, how!
  • Shut Up, Kirk!: Dismisses Erza's criticism of the demons' Blind Obedience to Zeref without even considering thinking for themselves on its face, stating that a human 'could never understand.'
  • Slasher Smile: It's scary enough to make Minerva nervous.
  • Stripperific: About the only part of her body still left to the imagination is her face.
  • Undying Loyalty: To Zeref, but for a different reason than any of the previous Dark Mages in the series. As a demon, she (and presumably, the other demons) sees Zeref, their creator, almost as a father-like figure. Kyouka in particular claims that everything Tartarus as a guild is doing is for him alone, and even says that she and the other demons are working so that they can 'be with him.' What, exactly, she means by this is unclear.
  • Unusual Ears: Apparently, those green, fluffy things protruding out of the sides of her Cool Helmet are hear ears.
  • Whip It Good: Her fingers can extend into long, whiplike appendages. They're also pointed at the end, perfect for impalement.
  • Wolverine Claws: She can also use them like this.
  • You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: She only wants the strongest soldiers, the weak (like Succubus Eye, much to Minerva's horror) are unnecessary and have no business being alive.
  • You Gotta Have Green Hair: The cover of Volume 42 shows that her hair is, in fact, green. In fact, it's a case of Rapunzel Hair that she keeps in a long ponytail wrapped in some kind of cloth that protrudes out from under her cloak, like an actual tail.
  • Zettai Ryouiki: She wears things that resemble boots that go from mid-thigh to just below the knees (leaving her avian feet bare), giving her a Type A. Bonus points for her thighs above her boots being completely bare.


Affiliation: Tartarus
Curse: Explosion Curse
Guild Mark: Right Pectoral
One of the Nine Demon Gates of Tartarus, who appears to be a human with catlike features. His magic causes anything around him to spontaneously explode. He was tasked with assassinating the Magic Council, and so far, only Doranbalt appears to have survived his terrorist attack on the Council's headquarters. He, like the other Nine Demon Gates, is a demon from the Book of Zeref. He was the first demon of the group to be killed... 'was' being the operative word.
  • Ax-Crazy: And you thought Zancrow was bad...
  • Badass: He single-handedly destroyed the headquarters of the Magic Council, and assassinated all but one of them.
  • Cluster F-Bomb: If the translation is to be believed, after being resurrected following his fight with Natsu. He didn't take it well.
    "I ain't gonna forgive that fireball bastard and his blue cat... I'm gonna fuck them up real good."
  • Collision Damage: A particularly nasty side-effect of his powers. Anything that touches his skin directly spontaneously explodes, which was something Natsu found out the hard way. Lamy seems to be an exception.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: He absolutely annihilated the Magic Council with seemingly little effort. Only one member survived: Doranbalt.
  • Death Is Cheap: Unlike Tempester, who loses his memories whenever he is resurrected, Jackal doesn't seem to suffer any negative consequences whatsoever, at least that we've seen.
  • Did Not See That Coming: Just like Tempester and Laxus, Jackal severely underestimated Natsu. Too bad Leeroy Jenkinsing him is (usually) a really, really bad idea...
  • Fangs Are Evil: Goes with his Little Bit Beastly appearance. His teeth look like that of a canine.
  • For the Evulz: Outright states to Lucy that he's not really looking to gain anything, and that he just sees humans as playthings.
  • Having a Blast: His magic causes massive explosions to occur anywhere around him.
  • Hates Being Touched: His reaction to Lamy's shows of affection were borderline tsundere levels of this.
    "Fuckin' gross, get off me!"
  • Hellish Pupils: Just like a cat's eyes.
  • Kansai Regional Accent
  • Little Bit Beastly: He looks like a Cat Boy.
  • Mad Bomber: Aside from blowing up the Magic Council's headquarters, he started destroying random buildings during his fight with Natsu, Lucy, and Wendy pretty much because he could.
  • Not Quite Dead: See Resurrective Immortality above for the reason why.
  • Oh Crap: You can almost hear him shitting bricks as he sees Natsu find a way around his Collision Damage ability, which was the only real advantage he had over him since Natsu can just eat his explosions.
  • One-Winged Angel: He can turn into a werewolf-like form as a last resort. Too bad for him, Natsu's used to dealing with folks who use brute force.
  • Peek-a-Bangs: Covers an entire half of his face.
  • Person of Mass Destruction: His Curse causes spontaneous explosions of all sizes and intensities. He can demolish an entire building without even trying.
  • Sadistic Choice: Gave Mikelo a choice between both he and his granddaughter dying, or him giving him - and by extension, Tartarus—the location of a certain MacGuffin he's looking for, in which case he would live... but his granddaughter would still die. Later he presents Lucy with a choice between saving Mikelo or a pregnant woman. Lucy is spared from making this choice by Natsu.
  • Scarf of Asskicking: He gets an even longer one after being resurrected by Lamy.
  • Slasher Smile: Massacres Magic Councilors, blows up a village, and forces more than one Sadistic Choice on others while sporting one of these. Can you tell he loves his job?
  • Spell My Name with an S: 'Jackal,' 'Jaguar...' Tartarus seems to really suffer from this.
  • Superpower Lottery: His basic offense is to blow up anything around him without any apparent limit. If you try to attack him, you blow up from touching him. If you try to fight long-range, he'll blow up the attack before it reaches him. If not for Natsu's ability to consume heat-based attacks, he'd be nearly unstoppable, which is best shown in Ch. 361 while Natsu is unconscious.
  • Taking You with Me: As with Tempester, once his defeat seems inevitable, he tries to blow up the town with Natsu's group still in it. It's thwarted by Happy of all people carrying him above the city.
  • Villainous Breakdown: When he finds that a "puny human" can actually go toe to toe with him. Even moreso when his Taking You with Me plan fails.
  • What the Hell Are You?: During his fight with Natsu. Apparently, he's never heard of Dragon Slayers, or at least has never actually seen one in action before; the fact that Natsu's fire-eating abilities basically made him immune to Jackal's explosions took him by complete surprise.
  • Would Hit a Girl: Or more specifically, would blow up a girl just to make a point to her grandfather, an ex-Magic Councilor. Or worse, would do the same to a pregnant woman, while forcing Lucy to decide if her life was more important than a Magic Counselor's.


Affiliation: Tartarus
Curse: Currently Unnamed
Guild Mark: Left Forearm (second body)
One of the Nine Demon Gates of Tartarus. He was tasked with killing former members of the Council, including Yajima. Fried, Bickslow and Evergreen attempt to stop him, but are swiftly defeated. He was seconds away from killing Yajima before Laxus arrived. He later used Anti-Magic Particles to essentially gas an entire city in order to attempt to take Fried, Bickslow, Evergreen, and Laxus with him, but this cost him his body. He now has an entirely new body, courtesy of Lamy... only without his memories intact.
  • Ambiguously Brown: His second body.
  • Badass: When you easily curb-stomp three of Fairy Tail's strongest mages, then take an attack from The Ace and seem unfazed by it, you definitely qualify.
  • Bishōnen: His second body is this in spades, complete with White Hair, Black Heart.
  • Blow You Away: He uses some kind of Wind Magic that summons cyclones. He can also put them around his limbs or use them to hit from afar.
  • Body Back Up Drive: And it looks nothing like the first body we see him in.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: The Raijin Tribe barely had time to attack him when he made his appearance, and he blew them away without any trouble.
    • This is reversed on him when Laxus beats him without even trying.
  • Dangerously Genre Savvy: He seems to be aware of how strong Fairy Tail is and doesn't waste time attacking. One panel after appearing, he uses a Cyclone to destroy the building he and his enemies are in, and he makes sure to paralyze the Raijin Tribe so they can't interfere.
    • When Laxus beats him, he uses a deadly attack that results in Laxus getting a Game-Breaking Injury, while he can simply regenerate.
  • Dark-Skinned Blond: In his second body.
  • Death Is Cheap: When he kills himself using his most powerful attack, he reforms himself back at Tartarus' HQ. Otherwise, we assume he's only as immortal as the rest of the demons in Tartarus. The only downside to this is that he can't remember his own name each time this happens. It's happened often enough that he no longer cares about his name.
  • Did Not See That Coming: He says he did not expect someone from Fairy Tail (read: Laxus)— or indeed any human— to be so strong, and thus he wasn't as serious as he could of been.
  • Expy: His second body is the spitting image of Xehanort from Kingdom Hearts.
  • Idiot Hair: In his second body.
  • In the Hood: He wears a hood to cover his face though most of his face is still visible.
  • Laser-Guided Amnesia: Every time he's reborn, he loses his memories.
  • Little Bit Beastly: He seems to have fur and a animal like face, though what kind is unknown due to his Hood. Seems to be a bit Lion but its hard to tell.
  • Long-Haired Pretty Boy: His second body.
  • Mage Killer: His most powerful attack makes him explode into toxic mist that is especially dangerous to magic users, though it's also deadly to ordinary people. The only downside is that he has to reform himself back at Tartarus' headquarters.
  • Meaningful Echo: Two of his quotes in particular reference something oddly familiar...
    Tempester: "Judgment is upon humanity. [...] Fall... to hell."
  • Meaningful Name: Yes, he's the guy throwing around Wind Spells.
  • Neck Lift: He had lifted Yajima up by the throat and was about to blast him with magic when Laxus showed up.
  • No Sell: He took a direct hit from several members of the Raijin Tribe, and barely even flinched.
  • The Paralyzer: His magic seems to paralyze whoever it hits, given how the Raijin tribe was unable to move afterwards.
  • Person of Mass Destruction: His tornadoes leveled Yajima's restaurant. And his Anti-Magic Particles were eerily reminiscent of a real-life chemical weapons attack, body count and collateral damage included.
  • The Red Baron: Tempester "the Immortal"
  • Rule of Sexy: In-universe example; Lamy says this was the reasoning behind his new appearance (while shamelessly fawning over him).
  • Spell My Name with an S: Tempester/Tempesta.
  • The Stoic: Aside from his Verbal Tic below, he hardly seems to speak, and when he does, his sentences consist of about three or four words total.
  • Taking You with Me: Subverted with his final attack. At first it looks like he's killing himself to take out Laxus, the Raijin Tribe, and Yajima, but then he reveals that he's perfectly alive and just needs to return to HQ to reform himself.
  • Verbal Tic: He has a habit of saying things like "Hyuru" or "Bo" when he uses his magic.
  • White Hair, Black Heart: His second body.


Affiliation: Tartarus
Curse: Revolution
A member of the Nine Demon Gates, who resembles a short, fat cyclops clad head-to-toe in armor, except for the lower half of his head, and uses a cane to walk. He's in charge of managing Tartarus' money, and has a habit of constantly laughing.

  • Achilles' Heel: He cannot assimilate anything without a soul. Natsu exploits this by beating him with a big rock.
  • Acrofatic: Much to Natsu's shock. When channeling Hades' soul, he's firmly in Lightning Bruiser territory.
  • The Assimilator: His Combat Tentacles-like limbs don't just drain energy. Leave them attached long enough, and you get absorbed. Powers included.
  • Battle Strip: His armor comes off as he fights Natsu. Justified in that his armor is apparently more like a straightjacket that restrains his body mass than armor, and what's more, he doesn't need it anyway.
  • Beware the Silly Ones: Don't let his constant giggling and obsession with money fool you; even Natsu was struggling with this guy.
  • Catch Phrase: "How much is X worth? How much?"
  • Cheshire Cat Grin: Constantly.
  • Combat Tentacles: Kind of. While they're actually his limbs, his rubber-like body can sprout more of them from almost any part of his body. And those limbs can sprout even more.
  • Cyclops: He usually has one large, glowing eye in the center of his head, usually visible through his armor's facemask.
  • Fat Bastard: His constant obsessing over the quantitative worth of everything from the actions and loyalty of his teammates to the souls he's absorbed make him the perfect embodiment of greed among the demons.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: Absorbing the Celestial Spirits backfires immensely when Lucy tries to call them back to the spirit world to save them. Franmalth finds himself being sent to the spirit world along with them, forcing him to release them to free himself. Lucy then bluffs him by pretending that Natsu is also a Celestial Spirit, which spooks Franmalth into freeing Natsu too.
  • The Hyena: He laughs as he wonders how many people Jackal was able to kill at the Magic Council.
  • Large Ham: A candidate for one of the largest hams in the series so far.
  • Morally Bankrupt Banker: He scolded Tempester for using anti-magic particles, saying they were too expensive to use casually, and even dismissed Doriate for being too expensive to justify his usefulness. Considering he was also the one who cut a deal with Crawford, he's likely the one who manages Tartarus' finances.
  • Narm: In-Universe: when he transforms with Hades' soul, both Lucy and Natsu points out that he's not threatening at all and even ridicolous, in stark contrast to Hades menacing One-Winged Angel. Sadly, funny looking or not he can still kick Natsu's ass with ease.
  • Nigh Invulnerable: Natsu's attacks just piss him off. He even No Sells Lightning Flame Dragon's Roar. Turns out it's because they're magic attacks and he can absorb them. Physical attacks attacks on the other hand...
    • That becomes a bit of Continuity Nod when you remember that the real Hades faced down that exact same spell, with similar results (or lack thereof).
  • Oh Crap: His reaction to Natsu busting in through their wall. As well as when Lucy manages to call back her spirits from him through force of will. Getting tricked by Lucy into thinking Natsu is a spirit that he releases his hold on him and Natsu getting around that "Magic Won't Work On Me" detail by smashing him with a rock.
  • Overly-Long Tongue: And it tends to wag and dangle out of his mouth while he laughs.
  • Rubber Man: His limbs can stretch out to grab something at the opposite end of the room. Very helpful, for The Assimilator.
  • Spikes of Villainy: Can be seen once he bursts out of his armor.
  • Superpower Lottery: His role as The Assimilator gives him the potential to make him one of the most dangerous enemies yet in the series, if he wasn't such a damn Cloud Cuckoo Lander. To put things into perspective, he's able to absorb an indefinite amount of souls, including Celestial Spirits, as well as Hades, the Arc Villain of Sirius Island.
  • Tempting Fate: No more than a few seconds after reassuring Crawford that he was safe, cue Natsu knocking down their wall.
  • Turns Red: Whipping out his 'most powerful soul' draws an Oh Crap out of Natsu, Lucy, Happy, and Carla. Did we mention that it's Hades?
  • Villainous Breakdown: While he was never quite composed to begin with, he goes completely berserk when he realizes the Face project failed.
  • You Keep Using That Word: During an exchange with Natsu.
    Franmalth: "I'm perfectly capable of telling the difference between rats and humans! I metaphorically called her a rat because she was sneaking around like one!"
    Natsu: "By the way, Carla isn't a rat either, in case you were wondering."
    Franmalth: "I KNOW THAT YOU IDIOT!"
  • Your Soul Is Mine: The way his curse works? He doesn't just absorb your body, and your powers. According to him, he absorbs you. ALL of you, soul included.



Affiliation: Tartarus
Curse: Tenga Goken
Guild Mark: Upper Right Forearm

A large, Multi-Armed and Dangerous member of the Nine Demon Gates known as the "Child Slicer". He was the one who chopped up the village Gray and Juvia were sent to, as well as the one Kyouka dispatched to manually activate Face following Crawford's death, and has to defend Face when Wendy goes to try to deactivate it.
  • Absurdly Sharp Blade: His Curse involves these.
  • Ax-Crazy: Quite eager to start slaughtering humans. His epithet "Child Slicer" doesn't help, and implies that he was the one who cut up the entire town Gray and Juvia went to. Definitely proves it during his fight with Wendy.
  • Blood Knight: Unlike Torafusa, he states he doesn't care about demon dignity as long as he can fight something.
  • Child Hater: He didn't take Wendy seriously at all, even going so far as to refer to her as 'midget.'
  • Cluster F-Bomb: Even more than Jackal. Ezel swears like a sailor in one translation.
  • Combat Tentacles: His tentacle-like limbs can be used like this.
  • I'm a Humanitarian: He was going to eat Carla.
  • Irony: His epithet in Japanese refers to a demon-slaying sword.
  • Karmic Death: His nickname is "Child Slicer" and is the one who activated Face. He's then defeated by Wendy, a child, and apparently dies in the explosion following Face's self-destruction mechanism.
  • Kick the Dog: He was about to crush Wendy underneath his Combat Tentacles, until he got the bright idea of wanting to eat Carla after Carla tried to save Wendy. Bad idea.
  • Mr. Exposition: He explained to Wendy how Face worked... including the 'ethernano' in the air surrounding it. What kind of Dragon Slayer is Wendy, again?
  • Multi-Armed and Dangerous: Four arms and seven tentacles used as legs.
  • Nice Job Fixing It, Villain: Ezel is responsible for having Wendy go from Tag Along Kid to a full-fledged Dragon Slayer, after his attempt to eat Carla, prompting her to eat the air surrounding Face, unlocking her Dragon Force.
  • One-Winged Angel: His "Slasher Form" has him gaining bigger fangs, a samuraiesque armor and huge black blades in lieu of his arms. However, is still not enough to defeat Wendy's Dragon Force.
  • Oh Crap: His reaction to sees that his swords can't cut through Wendy's increasing wind right before she blasts him away with the Dragon Force.
  • Shout-Out: His surname and attacks refers to the five greatest Japanese swords: Douji Giri, Onimaru, Juzumaru, Odenta and Mikazuchi. Only the first three were directly referred to.
  • Storm of Blades: His Curse involves huge, invisible Absurdly Sharp Blades that seem to extend from his hands.
  • Would Hurt a Child: Lives up to his moniker of 'Child Slicer' during his fight with Wendy.
  • You Fight Like a Cow: He spent the entire fight against Wendy taunting her, and was about to end it with a Kick the Dog to Carla. Comes back to bite him in the ass, hard.


Affiliation: Tartarus
Curse: Macro
Guild Mark: Stomach

A member of the Nine Demon Gates of Tartarus. Her magic allows her to manipulate the 'macra' found in the bodies of living creatures, giving her the ability to manipulate the movements and actions of those under her control. She is also tasked with killing former members of the Magic Council, as well as finding the location of Face.
  • Absolute Cleavage: Just as much as Kyouka.
  • Badass: Anyone who can reduce Elfman to Inelegant Blubbering, destroy the Fairy Tail headquarters (and almost succeed in killing off the entire guild if not for Cana), and then fight one of Fairy Tail's best mages while barely taking a scratch more than deserves this title.
    "In a demon's story... there's no such thing as mercy."
    • Badass Bookworm: Enjoys good stories, though she finds the stories written by humans boring.
  • Berserk Button: Do not, in her own words, embarrass her in front of Kyouka.
  • Clothing Damage: Her entire Minidress of Power gets ripped in two and becomes little more than Detached Sleeves as a result of going One-Winged Angel. More runes appear on her now-bare chest, just so that it still doesn't show anything.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: She was already kicking Mirajane's ass. But once Mirajane destroyed the resurrection labs and used her Satan Soul: Sitri form, Sayla whipped out her own One-Winged Angel form... and blew Mirajane's Sitri form away. Ends up on the receiving end when Mirajane puppeteers Elfman (with Seilah's own Curse no less) into taking out Seilah with one blow when Seilah was distracted.
  • Cute Monster Girl: She's the most human looking of the group next to Silver (and since his appearance is stated to be his "human form", he probably has a more demonic-looking original form, making Seilah the member of the group whose default appearance is most human-like).
  • Dark Action Girl: She's able to give Mirajane one hell of a fight.
  • Deal with the Devil: Invoked after Elfman begged her to stop using his body to strangle Lisanna.
    "'Beg?' When a human begs something of a demon... that's when he must offer the demon their soul. Are you prepared to sell me your soul?"
  • Did Not See That Coming: Did not expect Fairy Tail to escape the bomb placed in the guild due to Cana's magic, with the three Exceed carrying the cards of the members towards their base. Her reaction speaks volumes. She gets it again at the tail end of her fight with Mirajane since she's batting Mira around she doesn't realize what Mira's up to before Mira commands Elfman to drop down right on top of her.
  • Does Not Like Shoes: Her Zettai Ryouiki are literally the only thing on her feet, besides nail polish.
  • Eerie Pale-Skinned Brunette: Black hair, but close enough.
  • Emotionless Girl: Generally a pretty quiet, reserved character. Until her Berserk Button is pushed...
  • Eyes Do Not Belong There: On the palms of her hands in her One-Winged Angel form. Used to perform a Kamehame Hadouken.
  • Forced to Watch: Her magic isn't mind control, meaning Elfman is fully aware of the fact that he was being forced to strangle Lisanna, invoking this trope.
  • Femme Fatalons: Complete with nail polish.
  • Fur and Loathing: Part of her Minidress of Power appears to have been made from leopard skin, or something similar.
  • Hair Decoration: A hairband that runs perpendicular to her horns.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: Mirajane uses Seilah's own signature Curse to puppeteer Elfman (which was only possible because Seilah used Macro on him already making this a double example) into striking down Seilah when she was too busy trying to finish off Mirajane.
  • Horned Humanoid: Aside from the markings, this is one of the only physical features she has that doesn't look entirely human.
  • I Have Your Sister: Her leverage over Elfman, to get him to drop a Fantastic Nuke lacrima in Fairy Tail's guild hall. Somewhat justified, though, in the sense that he no longer has a say in the matter.
  • Impossibly-Low Neckline: How the hell does that Minidress of Power stay up?
  • Laser-Guided Karma: Just like Rustyrose, her defeat comes at the hands of someone she previously beat. In this case Elfman and ironically once again through someone taking control of him.
  • Night of the Living Mooks: Played with; she openly admits that corpses are harder for her to control than living People Puppets. As she demonstrates with the corpse of a freshly-slain ex-Magic Councillor, and then with Elfman.
  • Necessary Drawback: When she goes One-Winged Angel she uses all her power in that form, weakening her control over others.
  • No Sell: On the giving and receiving end of this. Mirajane can't use "Takeover" on her and she can't use Macro on Mirajane. She resorts to using Macro on herself to go One-Winged Angel. Mirajane was able to use "Takeover" to steal Seilah's Macro Curse, leading to Seilah's defeat.
  • Oh Crap: To say she reacts badly to Cana saving the guild and allowing Fairy Tail to actually counter and attack is an understatement.
    "This is... My fault..."
  • One-Winged Angel: Accessed by using Macro on herself and removing her limiter. Her horns grow twice as large, she gains Blank White Eyes (with Extra Eyes elsewhere on her body, including the palms of her hands, her Minidress of Power splits into Detached Sleeves, and she gains even more runes on her body. Her One-Winged Angel form is borderline Eldritch Abomination levels of freaky-looking.
  • People Puppets: By manipulating the "Macra" inside people, she can control them. She notes that it's easier to do this with living beings than with corpses.
  • Psycho Lesbian: Seems to be in a sexual relationship with Kyouka. Even more so when she is furious at Elfman for "embarrassing" her in front of Kyouka.
  • Psychotic Smirk: Right before the Fantastic Nuke lacrima she ordered Elfman to plant in Fairy Tail's headquarters detonates.
  • Sadistic Choice: See I Have Your Sister. She's making Elfman choose between his family and his guild.
  • She's Got Legs: And Mashima loves showing them off.
  • Spell My Name with an S: She has been called "Seira" and "Sayla".
  • The Stoic: She shows no expression, not even sadistic glee, as she forces Elfman to strangle his sister Lisanna.
  • Superpower Lottery: Doesn't get much more broken than People Puppets.
  • Tattooed Crook: She has markings on her forehead and shoulders, though they appear more to be runes of some kind, rather than tattoos.
  • Throw the Book at Them: Is shown doing this to Mirajane, with several floating books all pelting her at once.
  • Wicked Cultured: Not only is she a Badass Bookworm, she constantly refers to everything going on around her as if it were the plot of one of her stories, even going so far as to as to comment on events as if she were critiquing a book.
    "Ezel-san, stories have a proper sequence. This is the prologue... no... the preface, rather."
  • Yandere: Wanting to kill Lisanna in front of Mirajane just because Elfman "embarrassed" her in front of Kyouka clinches it.
  • Zettai Ryouiki: Type A.
