Main Characters

    Éclair 

Éclair

Voiced by: Aya Endo (Japanese), Jessica Calvello (English)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/eclair.png

A stony-faced priestess from Fire Village who holds one half of the Phoenix Stone, said to summon a phoenix that can bestow immortality onto others. She also cannot remember her past other than the fact that she resents magic and wizards.


  • Ambiguous Disorder: It's implied that Éclair has been suffering from depression, post-traumatic stress disorder along with post-traumatic amnesia, given her feelings of hopelessness, as well as her irritability and social withdrawal. It's not hard to see why, given what happened to her ever since she became immortal for 400 years.
  • Bonding Over Missing Parents: After Éclair learns of Kalard's death, Lucy finally gets Éclair to snap out of her Heroic BSoD after confessing she recently found about her own father's death the same way.
  • Brutal Honesty: She's blunt when she tells Natsu and her friends that magic can bring sorrow and hurt among some. And she's not exactly wrong in doing so...
  • Continuity Cameo: She and Momon appear in a panel in the fourth chapter of Fairy Tail Zero.
  • Crisis of Faith: For 400 years, Éclair has become disillusioned with magic and wizards, seeing how magic has brought people sorrow all these years.
  • Cry into Chest: After she learns of her father's death, and Lucy shares the story of how she lost her own father, Jude, without even being there, Éclair can only sob into Lucy's arms.
  • Cynicism Catalyst: Drinking the phoenix's blood for 400 years led to her disillusionment against magic.
  • Defrosting Ice Queen: Although Éclair is initially distrustful towards Natsu and his friends due to her Freudian Excuse, she eventually accepts their friendship after spending time with them as well as seeing the lengths to which they are willing to help.
  • Disappears into Light: After she and Momon and say their final goodbyes to Natsu, the two form into a literal phoenix as they descend to the afterlife, leaving being a image of the Fairy Tail symbol as thanks for their efforts.
  • Does Not Like Magic: Since becoming immortal for 400 years thanks to the Phoenix's blood, she really hates magic and wizards, as shown when she initially refuses Lucy and Natsu's efforts to help her.
  • Doomed Hometown: Her village was destroyed a few centuries ago.
  • Face Death with Dignity: When Makarov presents the arrow that will end the phoenix and, in turn, kill Éclair. She has no objections since it will save her new friends and free herself from her suffering.
  • Fortune Teller: The First Morning prequel chapter shows she works as a fortune teller to give people advice by recalling her pasts. This isn't because she has magic of her own, or even any precognitive ability, but because she's immortal and can recall aspects of their pasts, despite not fully realizing it.
  • Freudian Excuse: Spending 400 years as an immortal due to her drinking the Phoenix's blood gave Éclair a seething resentment against wizards and magic.
  • Go Out with a Smile: She clearly has no regrets on spending her final moments in the arms of her new friend, Lucy, and even tries to convince the poor girl that she's ready to move onto the afterlife.
  • Immortality: She's kept alive by the blood of the phoenix.
  • Immortality Hurts: She might have Complete Immortality, but she feels pain just as well as any other person, and is genuinely horrified when it looks like she's going to be burned at the stake.
  • Jerkass Has a Point: Upon initially refusing Natsu's offer to help out, Éclair notes that magic can bring others sorrow and pain. A reasonable point, since Cream and Carbuncle has caused chaos in Veronica.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Her 400-year-old immortality and stoicism had made her come off as a cold, uncaring jerk. Combined with her severe trust issues, most of the wizards she interacts with, especially Natsu and his friends, have a difficult relationship with her at first. However, she does deeply care for all life, as shown when she bonds with Lucy over their fathers' deaths.
  • Laser-Guided Amnesia: Éclair has very few to almost no memories of her past. The only thing she knew for certain was that she was meant to deliver the Phoenix Stone.
  • Miko: The movie's titular Phoenix Priestess.
  • No Ontological Inertia: Her village elder gave her immortality in the hopes of locking away the phoenix and that someday someone would be strong enough to destroy should it be resurrected. When it is released, Makarov finds the means to kill it and Fairy Tail manages to do so. Éclair finally dies as a result since her lifeforce was linked to it.
  • Rapunzel Hair: More noticeable when her hair comes undone as it goes down nearly to her feet.
  • Really 700 Years Old: Thanks to her immortality from the phoenix's blood, she's been alive for 400 years.
  • Shipper on Deck: She seems to recognize feelings between Natsu and Lucy, telling Natsu to help "mend [Lucy's] heart" after she dies together with the phoenix.
  • The Stoic: Even towards children, Éclair maintains a straight face and speaks in a matter-of-fact tone when relaying information, telling things as they are and not sugarcoating the truth.
  • Together in Death: She reunites with Momon, who had earlier sacrificed himself to save her, after her death.
  • Took a Level in Idealism: After spending 400 years of resentment towards magic and wizards, her faith has been restored by the end of the film thanks to Fairy Tail's efforts.

    Momon 

Momon

Voiced by: Mika Kanai (Japanese), Tiffany Grant (English)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/momon.png

Éclair's small caretaker, a stuffed bird doll who was brought to life by the magic of the Phoenix Stone.


  • Continuity Cameo: He and Éclair appear in a panel in the fourth chapter of Fairy Tail Zero.
  • Declaration of Protection: Momon devoted himself to protecting Éclair, who created him.
  • Determinator: Fought off an entire pack of wolves to save Éclair, and nearly got ripped apart as a result. He then brought her home and continued to stand guard over her until she woke up in the morning.
  • Disappears into Light: Just like Éclair, he ascends to the afterlife with her in the shape of a phoenix.
  • Flight: He is capable of this, leaving blue, glittery sparkles behind him as he does.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: He burns to death to save Éclair from being sacrificed on a stake. Even though Éclair would have survived thanks to her immortality, she would have felt every ounce of pain that burning at the stake would bring without hope of relief, so he likely saw it as necessary.
  • Together in Death: After sacrificing himself to save Éclair, his spirit reunites with hers.

Carbuncle

A wizard guild hired by Duke Cream to steal the Phoenix Stone.

    Carbuncle in General 
  • Arrogant Kung-Fu Guy: They are all very conceited and brag of their abilities when facing Fairy Tail.
  • Badass Crew: Their fighting skills are so advanced that they make most of the fights against Fairy Tail a Curb-Stomp Battle in their favor.
  • Hyperspace Arsenal: Coordinator and Chase are weapon-based wizards, so they draw their weapons using this method.
  • Only in It for the Money: Apart from Dist, the thing they look forward to the most out of capturing Éclair for the Duke is the 400 million Jewel reward.
  • Quirky Miniboss Squad: Dist's underlings serve this role for the film.
  • Two Guys and a Girl: Besides Dist, they fulfill this dynamic as Dist's followers, with Cannon and Chase and the guys, and Coordinator as the girl.

    Dist 

Dist

Voiced by: Showtaro Morikubo (Japanese), Ryoko Shiraishi (Japanese, child), Taliesin Jaffe (English)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/dysts_possible_profile_image.png

The leader of Carbuncle, who harbors ulterior motives for stealing the Phoenix Stone. He uses a form of telekinesis as his magic.


  • All There in the Manual: Dist's entire background, or at least what little of it that's provided, can only be found in the First Morning bonus manga chapter and its animated adaptation on the film's DVD.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: The first two battles between Dist and Natsu ended with the former unscathed and the latter soundly injured.
  • Dragon-in-Chief: He's technically subordinate to Duke Cream, but it's clear throughout the movie that he's the real threat the heroes have to face.
  • Dragon with an Agenda: He serves under Duke Cream, but has ulterior motives to hijack Cream's Evil Plan.
  • Freudian Excuse: As the prequel short story The First Morning reveals, he developed a fear of death after experiencing the death of his pet weasel as a child, and being told by Éclair that all things die eventually. This eventually turned him into an Immortality Seeker.
  • Generic Doomsday Villain: He's about as flat a villain as you can get; his motivations aren't even given in the movie, and even then, we're only given very little.
  • The Heavy: Duke Cream may be pulling the strings in this movie (or so he thinks), but Dist is the one who does the real heavy-lifting.
  • Immortality Seeker: He wishes to use the phoenix's blood to become immortal because he's that afraid of dying.
  • The Leader: Serves as this for Carbuncle.
  • Mind over Matter: His magic involves telekinesis. He can use this magic to directly blast his opponent or to shoot them down with debris.
  • No-Sell: Thanks to his magic, he can simply push back anything thrown at him, even Natsu's flames.
  • Psychopathic Manchild: Though not as outwardly shown, he's gripped by the same fear of death he never moved on from as a little boy.
  • Pyrrhic Villainy: He awakens the phoenix as planned, but doesn't get his desired immortality due to mistakenly believing it's the phoenix's blood that will grant it, when it's really its tears, a fact that Éclair never shared with anyone.
  • The Starscream: Just as Cream summons the phoenix, Dist blasts the duke away in order to gain the power of immortality for himself.
  • Uncertain Doom: He suffers a Disney Villain Death after Natsu knocks him off the phoenix, but the impact isn't shown.
  • Villainous Breakdown: After he manages to awaken the phoenix, he tries to cut it to get at its blood as he thinks it's the key to immortality (it's the tears, actually), but can't break through its skin. This frustration is compounded when Natsu arrives to fight him once more, wondering why he won't die already after defeating him twice, and skyrockets when Natsu starts weathering his attacks before proceeding to knock Dist out.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: His hair is a very pale blue.

    Cannon 

Cannon

Voiced by: Kouji Ishii (Japanese), Kyle Hebert (English)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/cannon_profile_image.png

A burly man who wields an array of magic artilery.


    Coordinator 

Coordinator

Voiced by: Hitomi Nabatame (Japanese), Shelley Calene-Black (English)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/coordinator_profile_image.png

A woman who uses a form of Requip magic like Erza and can dispel others' transformations.


  • Anti-Magic: Specifically, she uses her magic to counter the Strauss siblings' Takeover and Erza's armors. Erza finally manages to overcome this magic by wearing a bridal dress (which she brought earlier and is not magic powered) to take her out.
  • Battle Ballgown: Most of Coordinator's armors have a rather feminine design, with large gown-like skirts.
  • BFS: Coordinator's "Fire Armor" sword and the swords she summons on her "Sword Armor".
  • Dark Action Girl: Coordinator matches Erza in fighting style and skill.
  • The Dark Chick: Coordinator fits this role, as she stands out as the sole named female.
  • Didn't See That Coming: Gives Erza a pretty tough time since she can take away all her armor (including the samuria get up since it focus all her magic power to her weapons). But didn't expect Erza to shift into a wedding dress form which wasn't magic powered, nullifying Coordinator's power and finally allowing Erza to defeat her.
  • Flower in Her Hair: Coordinator wears one with her normal attire.
  • Gainaxing: Seen during Coordinator's battle against Erza on the roofs. It seems that her armor doesn't include a bra.
  • Large Ham: Coordinator definitely has a love for theater, hamming it up and playing along when her and Erza's battle accidentally interrupts a stage play.
  • Make-Up Is Evil: Coordinator is one of the few female villains in the series to wear deep red lipstick.
  • Multi-Melee Master: Like Erza, Coordinator seems to be able to use efficiently many weapons.
  • Serrated Blade of Pain: Coordinator's default weapon is a retractable blade covered in barbs.

    Chase 

Chase

Voiced by: Koji Yusa (Japanese), Jason Liebrecht (English)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/chase_profile_image.png

A masked ninja who can turn his body into a shadow.


  • Blade Below the Shoulder: Chase draws one from his sleeve while chasing Lucy and Éclair.
  • Casting a Shadow: Chase can literally turn himself into a shadow.
  • Cool Mask: Chase's mask easily makes him one of the more intimidating villains in the film.
  • Fragile Speedster: Chase is incredibly swift thanks to his ability to move through shadows, but a single strong hit from Gajeel is all it takes to take him out.
  • In the Hood: Chase wears a hood.
  • Intangible Man: Chase can merge his body with the shadows and vanish, and can even enter others' bodies to stab them with dozens from blades from the inside. He cannot use it defensively, however, as Gajeel takes him out rather easily once his real body is found.
  • Knife Nut: Chase's usual manner of attack involves volleys of knives. Sometimes from the inside of the people.
  • No-Nonsense Nemesis: Unlike his partners, Chase doesn't boast and is much more ruthless, as seen when he immediately attacks Lucy and Éclair when both are unprotected, and gives chase when they get away.
  • The Stoic: Chase is the most serious of the group.
  • Wolverine Claws: Seemingly Chase's weapon of choice, composed of three blades.

Others

    Cream 

Cream

Voiced by: Kouki Miyata (Japanese), Scott Zenreich (English)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/prince_cream.png

The ruler of the Principality of Veronica, a tiny country just north of Fiore. Using the other half of the Phoenix Stone, he plots to summon a phoenix to gain immortality.


  • Big Bad Wannabe: He's presented as the antagonist with The Plan, but he's also made out to be an ineffectual, small-minded villain, with the real threat being the Carbuncle guild he's hired to help him.
  • Genre Blindness: Utterly fails to see Dist's betrayal coming.
  • Immortality Seeker: He seeks to live forever to preserve his own youth and beauty.
  • Non-Action Big Bad: He is the primary driving force of the villains in the movie, but lacks any fighting skill or magic of his own, relying on his soldiers and Carbuncle to do his dirty work.
  • Royal Brat: He acts like a completely spoiled child when Éclair gives him a headbutt to the face, breaking his nose. For that, he slashes her shoulder with a dagger and decides to burn her as a sacrifice.
  • Sissy Villain: Rather effeminate in both appearance, voice, and mannerisms, referring to Carbuncle as his "cute guard hounds".

    Elder 

Elder of Fire Village

Voiced by: Tamio Oki (Japanese), Grant James (English)

An elder who helped Éclair survive the raid on their village at the cost of his own life.


  • Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: His back gets skewered with half a dozen spears right before he teleports away.
  • No Name Given: There's not enough time to even establish one.
  • Posthumous Character: We're introduced to him right around the time of his death, and learn more about him through flashbacks.
  • Small Role, Big Impact: He helps Éclair escape the raid on Fire Village with half of the Phoenix Stone, and is the one who makes her immortal]].
  • Teleportation: He can teleport himself and Éclair, but somehow not the spears in his back.

    Kalard 

Kalard

Voiced by: Hirohiko Kakegawa (Japanese), Randy Pearlman (English)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/img_1132_4.PNG

Éclair's deceased father, an old wizard living in the Boundary Forest.


  • Anti-Magic: He was tasked with fashioning a certain Dispel magic to nullify the power of the Phoenix Stone.
  • Parental Abandonment: Though not of his own will; he was separated from his daughter when she went on to become the Fire Village's priestess while he was required to dispel the Phoenix Stone.
  • Posthumous Character: He's already dead by the time Éclair finds him. Four hundred years dead, to be exact.
  • So Proud of You: Before he gets to business, he starts his holographic message to tell Éclair that he's sure she has grown into a fine priestess.
  • This Page Will Self-Destruct: The lacrima containing his message to Éclair shatters after it finishes playing out.
  • Together in Death: Lucy spots him together with the spirit of a young Éclair and her mother after Éclair's death.

    Dasuma 

Dasuma

Voiced by: Hidehiko Masuda (Japanese), Ian Ferguson (English)

A mayor who hires Fairy Tail to stop a gang of bandits in his city.


    Geese 

Geese

Voiced by: Keisuke Okada (Japanese), David Matranga (English)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/img_1131_4.PNG

The leader of the Bacchus Bandits. He is also a wizard who can flatten his body to make quick escapes.


  • Big Damn Heroes: He saves Lucy and Éclair from falling to their deaths in the middle of the phoenix's rampage through Veronica.
  • Boring, but Practical: His magic allows him to flatten his entire body paper-thin. It comes in handy when escaping through an extremely narrow alley, and breaking Lucy and Éclair's fall when they nearly plummet into a crevice.
  • Chekhov's Gunman: He's introduced early on so he can save Lucy later, demonstrating her ability to connect with anyone she meets, whether they're an enemy or not.
  • Contrived Coincidence: He just so happened to be passing through Veronica to nab the Phoenix Stones and sell them for a nice price. He also just so happened to pass Lucy and Éclair as they fall into a crevice.
  • Gag Nose: He has an orange nose.
  • Lovable Rogue: He leads a gang of bandits and generally causes trouble around Dasuma, but he's far from heartless and briefly halts his escape to save Lucy and Éclair's lives.
  • One Degree of Separation: He named his gang after Quattro Cerberus' Bacchus.
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: He comes to Veronica thinking he could find some neat treasure, but when the phoenix attacks, he decides to high-tail it out of there.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": His name was misinterpreted as "Keith" in the Kodansha manga translation.
  • Tattooed Crook: His name is spelled out on his back in big letters, making him easy to identify.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Dark red in his case.
