A world parallel to Earth-land, where the bulk of Fairy Tail takes place. It is inhabited entirely by counterparts of characters throughout the series. However, magic is limited in Edolas and treated as a precious resource.Here be spoilers.Back to the main character index
Dark Is Not Evil: In a sense. Fairy Tail technically exists as a 'dark' guild due to lack of official sanction from the Edolas government, but that doesn't mean they're evil.
Not So Different: Although superficially the Edolas counterparts seem to be completely different than the Earth-land ones, it turns out they are really quite similar. We see this most prominently with Lucy, Jellal, Erza, and Gajeel, and then with Fairy Tail as a whole.
The King of Edolas, and Mystogan's father. He is obsessed with bestowing an infinite supply of magic on his kingdom, and tries to do so by stealing magic from Earth-land through interdimensional portals that transform wizards into lacrima.
The Caligula: The guy keeps an amusement park in his castle.
Envy/Greed: Both sins form his motivations. Envy because he envies Earth-land's abundance of magical power and seeks any way to obtain it, and greed because he isn't happy with "just enough"; he wants infinite magical power, and he will do anythingtoachieveit.
Humiliation Conga: After getting the crap beaten out of him, he nearly pisses his pants when confronted with three incredibly large dragons, is then tied to a post and forced to be a prisoner of "Great Demon Lord Dragneel", and later gets ignored and crushed underneath some rubble.
Utopia Justifies the Means/Well-Intentioned Extremist: Sadistic and/or violent tendencies aside, they genuinely believe that sacrificing the people of Earth-land will save their world. Because of their concern for their people, the anime adaptation shows Mystogan giving them a more lenient punishment than their much more self-centered former king Faust.
Erza Scarlet's Edolas counterpart, and Commander of the Second Magical Warfare Division in the Royal Military. She has hunted down a great number of magic guilds in Edolas. She wields a magical spear called "Ten Commandments", which can change its form and abilities on her command, similar to Erza's Requip ability.
Easily Forgiven: In the anime, Mystogan lets Coco off the hook without so much as a slap on the wrist due to her Heel-Face Turn, unlike her fellow Royal Military companions, who are sentenced to help rebuild the city destroyed by their actions.
Genki Girl: Has a tendency to run around the room when she's talking to people, shouting as she does it.
My Country, Right or Wrong: She's just as afraid that the loss of magic in Edolas will lead to the death of her world as anyone else, but she also loves her companions, especially Panther Lily. So when she learns that Lily will be killed as part of her king's plan to achieve eternal magic, she's understandably torn between living without her friend and dying happily with him.
A Bizarro Universe version of Fairy Tail exists in Edolas as a dark guild since the use of magic outside the capital is outlawed in Edolas. It is constantly on the run, and the only magic guild left standing in Edolas.
Also Lucy's (comical) treatment of Natsu most of the time.
Evil Counterpart: Not exactly evil, but most of the guild behaves quite dickish in comparison to their counterparts, especially Edolas' Team Shadow Gear. Then again, who wouldn't act that rigid if they were on the run from the law. They were a Dark Guild.
Stern Chase: They are constantly hunted by the Royal Military, and have modified their guild hall to burrow underground and make quick escapes.
You Have to Believe Me: Averted; they admit it's tough to believe Earth-land!Natsu and his friends come from a parallel world, but seeing this Natsu act so radically different from Edolas!Natsu is enough for them to lend them an ear and a helping hand.
Natsu Dragneel's Edolas counterpart. Unlike his Earth-land self, this Natsu shines while riding vehicles, and is Fairy Tail's transportation expert. Once he steps out of a vehicle, however, he turns into a sniveling wimp.
Tsundere: Lucy may batter Natsu for no reason, but on the other hand she seems to genuinely worry for him in her first appearance. This or it is just an act to take him by surprise, which is not unlikely.
Averted Trope: Mirajane is the sole resident of Edolas who behaves the same way as her Earth-land counterpart currently does. Then again, Edolas!Mirajane has always acted like Earth-land!Mirajane currently does, since the latter was once a bully. It may be because Edolas!Lisanna survived, or so they initially believe. Even after figuring it out, she still acts the same.
Adapted Out: During the guild's first scene in the manga, Vijeeter was shown to have a counterpart telling Nab to take a day off once in a while. He was not included in the anime, and his line was given to Warren.
Not Quite Dead: Lisanna, though not in the way it seems. It turns out the Lisanna in Edolas is actually Earth-land!Lisanna, who was believed to be dead. Ironically, the "real" Edolas!Lisanna really is Deader than Dead.
Posthumous Character: Fairy Tail's master, whose identity remains a mystery (if the anime is anything to go by, it's not Makarov). Also, Lisanna.
Considering that Gildarts' counterpart was never seen (lampshaded by Natsu to the man himself in the anime) and how he briefly becomes the new master of Earth!Land Fairy Tail after the time skip…hmm?
A race of winged cat-like creatures from Edolas, and the species Happy and Carla come from. They live in the floating island city of Extalia and are revered by the humans of Edolas as holy beings due to their ability to contain magic in their bodies, which humans from Edolas cannot do. This is really just a story fabricated by the rulers of Extalia to hide their race's weakness and keep them from being bullied. The entire Exceed race is sent to Earth-land together with the magic power stored in Edolas.
God Guise: She conned everybody into thinking she is a god, though she eventually confesses to the ruse. Part of the trick was that she could see into the future and predict when people would die, and fooled everyone into thinking she could cause people to die.
Manly Tears/Ocular Gushers: They start flowing out while he declares Happy and Carla to be traitors once they desert their mission. Justified since he knows full well that there is no mission for them to desert, but is forced to chase them down to keep up appearances despite knowing of their innocence.
Cats Are Mean: He was in charge of the program that sent Happy and Carla to Earth-land to kill Dragon Slayers, and claims to kill other humans on command. However, this is all just a lie to keep humans in check which, considering Faust, is not that bad of an idea. All in all, he's a pretty nice guy.
Dissonant Serenity: He smiles cheerfully while talking about how humans are inferior and how the Exceeds kill them when their population grows too much. Of course, this is just part of the Jerkass Façade.
Going Through the Motions: He never stops pumping his right fist into the air. It's so contagious that Team Natsu picks it up temporarily.
Jerkass Façade: He pretends to be an arrogant bastard who looks down on humans just so he can maintain peace among his people.
Only Sane Cat: Given how he's one of the few Exceeds to know the truth about the queen, he's also the first one to realize Wendy and Carla are telling the truth when they say that the humans are rebelling against them.
