The Raijin Tribe act as the bodyguards of Laxus. All of them were previously indifferent to the other members of Fairy Tail and each has a magical ability hidden within their eyes. Along with Laxus, they started Fairy Tail's interguild war, and acted as villains during that duration. Fried Justine rarely visits the guild, and he utilizes various enchantments that force people to follow specific, and often unknown, rules within a specific area, or they suffer whichever consequences he decides. He also is able to use a sword to create sensations or realities by writing on his opponent and himself, such as causing "pain" or "fear", or growing "wings." Evergreen is a girl who joined the guild specifically because she dreamed of being a fairy as a child. She can turn opponents to stone with a glare, and can use exploding dust and needles. Bixlow is a strange man in a suit of armor who is capable of controlling five dolls implanting them with souls. He can take over other people's souls by having them look into his eyes. The Raijin Tribe are voiced by Junichi Suwabe (Fried), Saori Seto (Evergreen), and Yoshihisa Kawahara (Bixlow).
Laxus Dreyar (Rakusasu Doreā?) is Makarov's grandson, who believed that his grandfather needed to retire and pass the title of master to himself. He wears a pair of spiked headphones, often smokes cigars, and he has a lightning-shaped scar that runs down the right side of his face. Though he was kind and loving towards the guild during his childhood, the excommunication of his father and constantly being in the shadow of his grandfather caused him to begin strive to be the strongest and hate the "weak" members of the guild. Laxus utilizes Lightning Dragon Slayer magic by using Lacrima crystals placed within his naturally weak body, but now his father's intentions are to remove and sell them, killing him in the process. After his coup with Fairy Tail, he is removed from the guild, though he leaves on good terms with Makarov. Recently, he had a strange feeling as Makarov is defeated and Grimoire Heart makes its move. He is voiced by Katsuyuki Konishi.
Cana Alberona (Kana Aruberōna?) is a short tempered woman, who constantly drinks alcohol and utilizes card based magic. She has been with the guild since childhood, and she acts as a leader during times of emergency. She is voiced by Eri Kitamura. Her name was derived from Arcana, a classification for occult tarot cards which she also uses as part of her magic.
Loke ( Roki?) is very flirtatious with any and all attractive women, though he was very wary of Lucy because of her status as a Celestial Spirit wizard. He avoided her at all costs, but eventually confided in her that he was actually Leo of the Lion Palace, a traitorous Celestial Spirit banished to the human world for inadvertently killing his previous master, Karen Lilica, by forcibly drawing out his contract to make sure that she did not abuse any more spirits. He was slowly dying due to spirits being unable to stay in the human world for long, and when he became ready to accept his fate, Lucy convinced him and the Spirit King that he did the right thing. He formed a contract with her to thank her, and became able to forcibly summon himself to protect her. He is voiced by Daisuke Kishio.
Mirajane (Mirajēn?), nicknamed "Mira", is a motherly waitress and cover girl of the guild, and Elfman (Erufuman?), a large man obsessed with spouting speeches about "manhood", are two siblings who specialize in the "Take Over" style of magic, which allows for the user to transform into any monster that they have defeated. Mirajane's name comes from a video game Hiro Mashima was playing while he created her. After Lisanna, their younger sister, was thought to have sacrificed herself to return Elfman from an unsuccessful transformation,but in reality was sucked into an anima headed to Fairy Tail in Edoras. Mirajane, originally an S-class mage, lost her will to use most magic, and Elfman became unable to transform anything more than his arms. Elfman eventually becomes able to fully transform in order to save his older sister, and Mirajane is able to unlock her abilities after seeing Fried mercilessly attack Elfman. Mirajane is initially only able to use basic transformation magic, but after regaining her abilities, she is able to use water magic and a demonic Take Over form. Mirajane is voiced by Ryoko Ono and Elfman is voiced by Hiroki Yasumoto.
Makarov (Makarofu?) is the aging master of Fairy Tail, who wishes to retire, although he believes none of the others are experienced enough. Hiro Mashima wanted his name to sound Russian Makarov has a very laid back approach to leading Fairy Tail, and encourages its members to do what they think is right. He does not necessarily mind that Fairy Tail is renowned for its property damage, only issuing negligible punishments when it happens, but hates having to explain their actions to the Magic Council. Makarov, being a Wizard Saint, is one of the strongest wizards on the continent and can use a number of different magic forms and defeat most opponents with relative ease. His most common choice of magic causes him to turn into a giant, but when properly motivated to fight, he utilizes light magic, such as "Fairy Law", a spell with a large radius that can discern between friend and foe. He is voiced by Shinpachi Tsuji.
Fairy Tail is a guild of wizards that typically regard each other as family, though they are very violent towards one another. It is regarded as one of the strongest guilds, but due to the constant collateral damage during their missions, they do not have a very good reputation. It has been said that everyone in Fairy Tail carries the wounds of a sad past. The strongest members of the guild are called S-class, which currently consist of Gildarts, a man said to be only second to Makarov, Erza, and Mirajane. Before they left the guild, Laxus and Mystogan were also recognized as S-class mages of Fairy Tail.
Erza Scarlet (Eruza Sukāretto?) is a main character of the series and one of Fairy Tail's S-class wizards. She is a very strong individual, is very stern, and places great value on the rules of Fairy Tail; if someone steps out of line or is slow to do as she asks, she does not hesitate to punish them, so many characters are quick to apologize if they think that they have angered her. This comes up most often when Natsu and Gray start arguing, where they are quick to stop and make up if someone mentions Erza. Erza is not without compassion, however, and will do her best to make Natsu and Gray happy, even if it means delaying their punishment until later. She is voiced by Sayaka Ohara.
As a child, Erza was one of the many slaves that constructed the Tower of Heaven. She was beaten frequently while there and eventually lost her right eye. During this she met a boy named Jellal who she fell in love with. She was eventually able to escape during a slave rebellion but was forced to leave her friends behind. Erza eventually arrived at Fairy Tail, and is given a false eye from Porlyusica. Her desire for armor resulted in her "re-quip" style of magic; with it she can instantly equip herself with armor or weapons in her vast arsenal. She is a talented warrior, being of comparable ability to guild leaders like Makarov. Her legendary status leads to her title of "Titania Erza", meaning "Queen of the Fairies". Her name was adapted from Eru, a character from a one-shot short story by Mashima that served as the basis for Fairy Tail.
Gray Fullbuster (Gurei Furubasutā?) is a main character of the series. He frequently teams up with Lucy and Natsu when they go on a mission. Natsu and Gray have a very brotherly, albeit competitive, relationship, with Natsu picking a fight with Gray whenever he says something that might be seen as insulting. Lucy theorizes that their constant fights are a natural byproduct of the magic styles. He is voiced by Yuichi Nakamura.
Gray was taught how to use ice magic by Ur when he was a child after his parents were killed by Deliora. When Gray later attacked Deliora to seek revenge, Ur sacrifices herself to trap Deliora in ice and save Gray. During his training with Ur, Gray was forced to live in a snowy region wearing nothing but his underwear in order to get accustomed to the coldness of ice. Because of this he has developed the subconscious habit of removing his clothes at inappropriate times, as he is most comfortable without them. Gray is one of Fairy Tail's most talented wizards, and he is able to form static formations of ice with relative ease. Unlike his fellow student under Ur, Lyon, Gray uses both of his hands when forming ice since using only one hand can create unbalanced ice forms. After defeating Juvia, she falls in love with him and joins Fairy Tail to be with him, where they develop a friendship. His necklace is a replica of Rave from Hiro Mashima's previous work.
Aquarius: "The Water Bearer" is a long-haired mermaid that can only be summoned into a body of water. She is selfish and taunts Lucy, often attacking both Lucy and Lucy's enemies with a torrent of water. Her occasional "off-days" would most likely be spent on a date with her boyfriend, Scorpio.

Leo: "The Lion" is Loke, who gives his key to Lucy after she helps him return to the spirit world. He was previously owned by Karen Lilica, whose abusive attitude towards Aries resulted in an argument where Leo refused to return to the spirit world until she released him and Aries from their contracts. By doing this, Leo prevented Karen from summoning other Celestial Spirits which caused her death on a mission. After he regains his former powers as a Celestial Spirit, Loke demonstrates that he is much stronger than he used to be when he was a member of Fairy Tail. Leo is able to appear into the real world at will without being called; he can sense when Lucy is in danger, and come assist her when needed.

Among these was Zoldeo, who held Capricorn's key. However, Zoldeo became swallowed by darkness and committed a taboo by using Human Subordination magic on Capricorn, which fused their bodies together.
