Ronin: "You harmed my comrades... That is something that I absolutely cannot forgive!"

Ronin is an S-Class mage of Fairy Tail, who specializes in a form of Take Over magic known as Hellhound Soul.

  • Dark Is Not Evil: Despite being regarded as one of the most terrifying members of Fairy Tail, with magic that is essentially a kind of reverse Demonic Possession, he is a rigorously moral person.
  • Authority Equals Asskicking: The former is somewhat subverted, in the sense that he's become far more easygoing and less commanding, (see Took A Level in Kindness) but the latter has only grow even more prominent.
  • Glowing Eyes of Doom: When he gets pissed, his eyes tend to turn yellow.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: Ronin started out as a bit of a cold, unfriendly person, with no tolerance for the crazy, unprofessional actions of his guildmates. But now? He's far more relaxed and open with his guild, even taking part in their antics from time to time, and has generally become a much kinder person.

  • Badass Longcoat: Part of his standard attire.
  • Berserk Button: Acting with senseless cruelty is probably one of the worst things you can do in front of Ronin. Either that, or betray others for personal gain. Doing either will pretty much guarantee you a quick and brutal lesson as to why he’s called The Hellhound.
  • No Social Skills: At best, he’s a bit awkward and antisocial. At worst, he’s bluntly insensitive and borderline reclusive. Thankfully, he’s gotten better over time.
  • Deadpan Snarker: He’s fired off more than his fair share of sarcastic quips.
  • Red Baron: He's known as The Hellhound.
  • Big Eater: He can really put it away.
  • Death Glare: If looks could kill... whoever's on the receiving end of this would be dead several times over.
  • Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: Speared several times by
