Characters from Fairy Tail

    open/close all folders 


Red Lizard

A guild located on Sirius Island in X679, where Mavis worked as a servant to work off her late parents' debts, until it was destroyed in a turf war with a rival guild, Blue Skull.

    In General 
  • Asshole Victim: Before getting slaughtered by Blue Skull, the whole guild underestimated Mavis for thinking she could ever learn magic.
  • Death by Origin Story: As a whole, the guild's demise serves a major part of Mavis's life.
  • Doomed by Canon: Given that Fairy Tail Zero is a prequel to the main series, we know that the guild will be destroyed from the get-go.
  • Jerkass: From the looks of things, Mavis had to endure their mockery every day.
  • Posthumous Character: They all died just seven years before Fairy Tail was founded.
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: The whole guild is killed off within the span of a single chapter, with their master being their only identified member.

Zeeself is the master of Red Lizard and Zera's father, who was killed the night Red Lizard was destroyed.

  • Asshole Victim: He may have been a casualty of war, but considering all the hell he put Mavis through, it wasn't totally undeserved.
  • Death by Origin Story: He dies during Red Lizard and Blue Skull's battle; since Mavis notes that there were no survivors other than herself, leaving her alone at the start of the story.
  • Doting Parent: He utterly adores his young daughter Zera and spoils her rotten, a jarring contrast to how he ridicules Mavis, who appears to be Zera's age at this time.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: Despite his Jerkass attitude, he truly did love his daughter. The anime even shows him uttering Zera's name as he dies.
  • Jerkass: His behavior towards Mavis is atrocious, especially considering she was six years old at the time. This included treating her like a slave, taking away her shoes simply because he could, and made her sleep in a barn by herself.
  • Kick the Dog: He takes back the shoes he bought for Mavis to give to Zera as a gift, only to throw them away when Zera says she doesn't want to catch Mavis' germs.
  • Playing with Fire: Specializes in fire magic. His daughter eventually follows in his footsteps.
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: He's killed off within the same chapter/episode as his introduction.


Blue Skull

A guild that ruled Magnolia prior to the establishment of Fairy Tail in the year X686. They were the predecessors of Phantom Lord.

    In General 
  • Create Your Own Hero: If not for their theft of the Sirius Orb, Mavis (the treasure's guardian) and Yuri's team (who sought out the treasure for themselves) would never have formed their truce that ultimately results in the birth of Fairy Tail.
  • Evil Power Vacuum: Even though the people of Magnolia were glad to be rid of Blue Skull once Mavis and her friends finally take them down, they realized that their regime provided some kind of economic stability for their city, meaning they would fall further into ruin without them. Fortunately, it was then Mavis decided to form Fairy Tail in its place.
  • Lack of Empathy: The members have destroyed entire towns and murdered many innocents, from the young to the elderly.
  • Predecessor Villain: To Phantom Lord, which was formed specifically so Geoffrey and his descendants would be able to one day destroy the guild formed by those who destroyed his empire.

The guild master of Blue Skull. He is also the founder of the Phantom Lord guild, and the ancestor of its last known master, Jose Porla.

  • Arc Villain: He is the driving antagonist of Fairy Tail Zero, ordering the attack on Sirius Island that kills Zera and everyone else besides Mavis, and stealing the Sirius Orb that Mavis and the treasure hunters are after, resulting in the birth of Fairy Tail.
  • Arch-Enemy: Previously served as one to Zeeself by virtue of their guilds' rivalry. He later becomes one to Fairy Tail, though this rivalry goes largely unseen.
  • Authority Equals Asskicking: Unlike the rest of Blue Skull, Mavis' plan for dealing with him completely dismissed the idea of the her group defeating him in a direct battle, hence choosing to trap him instead.
  • Badass Cape: It covers his entire body.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: Before realizing he is looking at an illusion, he reacts with revulsion when it appears that Mavis had set all of Magnolia on fire, including the innocent townspeople.
  • Facial Markings: He wears skull-like face paint on all except the edges of his face.
  • Goggles Do Nothing: Wears goggles over his mask seemingly just for dramatic effect.
  • Identical Ancestor: He has the same facial build as his descendant, Jose.
  • Mind over Matter: His magic appears to be telekinesis on steroids. He was able to dispel Mavis' illusions with a flick of the wrist, and threw Yuri's Crystal Bomb right back at his face after it was thrown.
  • Oh, Crap!: When he realizes that he's finally been beaten, he tells Fairy Tail not to touch the Sirius Orb. Not because he doesn't want to lose it, but because touching it is a really bad idea, because the Sirius Orb is a textbook Artifact of Doom.
  • Out-Gambitted: Despite seeing through Mavis's illusions, he eventually falls for one of them, not realizing it was an intentional decoy to distract him while he walked right into a cage which she and the others had erected for him.
  • Starter Villain: He and Blue Skull were chronologically the first true enemies that Fairy Tail ever had.
  • Villainous Legacy: He ends up proclaiming the foundation of Phantom Lord by the end of Zero, up until its fall during the Phantom Lord arc under his direct descendant Jose.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: Despite Blue Skull getting dismantled by the end of Zero, Geoffrey started Phantom Lord, a legitimate guild, and who knows if he answered for any of the crap he pulled?
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: He has dark purple hair in the anime.
