Fairy Tail: Main Character’s Age, Height, Birthday and Abilities

  • by

Fairy Tail anime is rich with unique characters and most of them are not expanded much by the creator Hiro Mashima. Here are some of the greatest characters in Fairy Tail, their age, birthday, height, and powers.

1. Natsu Dragneel

Age: 17 

Height: 5’7”

Birthday: July 7th

Power: Fire Dragon Slayer Magic

Fire Dragon Slayer Magic is a Caster Magic, Ancient Spell, Lost Magic, and a type of Dragon Slayer Magic that utilizes fire. Fire Dragon Slayer Magic is a type of Dragon Slayer Magic that grants the user various characteristics typical of a Fire Dragon: lungs capable of spewing flames, scales that grant protection against fire, and nails covered in flames. 

Consequently, Fire Dragon Slayer Magic allows the user to produce and control the fire from any part of their body, which can be used both in melee and as a ranged form of offense.

In addition, the user can consume external sources of fire to restore their body to a healthy state and regain their reserves of strength, something that also makes them immune to most types of fire, due to their capability of nullifying fire-based attacks by sucking them in and eating them; the consumed fire also seems to possess a different taste according to its quality.

2. Lucy Heartfilia

Age: 17

Height: 5’5”

Birthday: July 1, X767

Power: Celestial Spirit Magic

Celestial Spirit Magic is a type of Spatial Magic that allows her to summon Celestial Spirits, magical beings residing in the Celestial Spirit World, using the Keys of their respective Gates. When summoning a Spirit, the Keys are enveloped with a soft, golden light. 

Once a contract has been made with a Spirit, such Spirit will be available for Lucy to summon on certain days, in which it will fight on her side and perform several tasks for her. 

Her Celestial Spirits have varying levels of power, with different ones being more suited for certain tasks than others, not necessarily related to battle. While technically a summoner, she is not weak without her spirits. 

In later parts of the series, she gains access to Star Dress which allows her to incorporate the power of a celestial spirit into her body by placing the key of the spirit in question on her chest. 

3. Gray Fullbuster

Age: 18

Height: 5’10”

Birthday: February 13, X766

Power: Ice-Make

A form of Molding Magic that allows the user to create ice at his will and to shape it into objects. In Gray’s case, he uses Static Ice-Make, meaning he can shape his ice into inanimate things or weapons. Ice-Make is known as an extremely versatile form of Magic, coming in useful both in battle, for offensive and defensive purposes, and outside of it. 

Specializing in it and having been practicing it for years, Gray possesses extreme mastery over it, being capable of creating countless amounts of objects for a multitude of uses. Also, according to him, Ice-Make allows the user to produce virtually anything, granting the user an unmatched creation capability. 

Later on in the series, he would gain access to Ice Devil Slayer Magic which allows him to produce, manipulate and control the element of ice.

Like other Slayers, Gray is able to consume external sources of ice in order to replenish his strength and enhance his power while at the same time granting immunity to it and is extremely effective against demons.

4. Scarlet

Age: 19

Height: 5’6”

Birthday: April 7, X765

Power: Requip

Requip is a type of Spatial Magic and Erza’s signature form of Magic, over which she possesses great mastery. It is a type of Magic that allows her to swap weapons, armor, and clothes at will. She is noted for her ability to Requip extremely fast and is the only sword Mage known to be capable of Requipping weapons and armor while fighting. 

She is said to have over 100 different armors, something which made her and her immense strength well known throughout her place of residence, Magnolia Town, and throughout the entire Kingdom of Fiore, earning her the epithet “Titania”. 

Erza can also project a holographic inventory screen where she can view and organize items in their pocket dimension, as well as add items without equipping them on herself. Erza is also an extremely talented user of Sword Magic. 

As the name implies, this is a type of Magic that revolves around the use of swords. Through the use of this Magic, Erza is capable of using her swords to perform different magical attacks. Along with her telekinesis, she can remotely control her swords in fights.

5. Laxus Dreyar

Age: 23

Height: 6’3”

Birthday: X761

Power: Lightning Magic

It allows him to produce and manipulate lightning and electricity at his will, having complete control over its manifestation. He can attack with a single or both hands to generate electrical discharges at a distance or at close range. 

The effects of the blast depend on the user’s own ability; Laxus, with his great mastery of Lightning spells, has proven himself capable of conjuring bolts of electricity that are either frail, hot enough to heat a metal arm or devastating power to inflict damage. 

Through its use, Laxus can not only generate lightning from his body but also make it appear from almost anywhere to strike his opponents, taking them by surprise. By generating electricity on different parts of his body, he’s capable of making his attacks in melee deadlier, and of propelling himself around to gain extra momentum. 

The bright light from his lightning can be also used to momentarily blind enemies. In addition, much like other Elemental types of Magic, Lightning Magic allows Laxus to turn his own body into lightning, in order to evade enemy attacks, move around at high speed and strike every opponent crossing his path, and take, or even block, lightning-based attacks without being injured. 

After the year-long time skip, Laxus has grown powerful enough to be able to effortlessly negate attacks from one of the Spriggan 12, Ajeel, later causing the need for him to be shielded by August from another attack which resulted in a massive explosion of electricity. He can also use Thunder dragon slayer magic although he is considered a second-generation because he was implanted with the power by his father.

6. Gildarts Clive

Age: 45

Height: 6’2”

Birthday: X739

Power: Crush

Crush is an extremely powerful Caster Magic that smashes everything the user comes into contact with into pieces. It can be used to both crack Magic into pieces, thereby nullifying its effects, as well as to reduce the Magic’s power and to deflect it. 

Even the most powerful spells are rendered useless when faced with this destructive and advanced Magic, which is difficult to control even for an extremely powerful individual like Gildarts himself.

The effects of Crush occasionally manifest themselves as the target being separated into cubes; interestingly, should Crush be directly cast on another living organism, the recipient is separated into numerous, doll-like versions of themselves. After some time, the target should revert to their original form, but should Gildarts wish, he can manually change them back.

7. Cana Alberona

Age: 18

Height: 5’8”

Birthday: X766

Power: Magic Card

A type of Holder Magic revolves around the use of Magic Cards, which can produce a variety of effects, such as generating both abiotic and biotic things. Cana’s cards can be used for offense, with her fighting style having been described as “all-round”. 

She can employ them as long-range weapons by throwing them at her enemies, and has displayed considerable accuracy in doing so; she is also said to be capable of combining her cards to generate particular effects (something which was extensively shown in the anime). 

Aside from combat, Magic Card seems to possess other avenues for usage: Cana apparently can track down people to some degree through the cards’ use, as shown when she placed several of them on the ground in an attempt to pinpoint Mystogan’s location, but to no effect, leaving the effectiveness and the conditions of the cards’ tracking power unknown. 

In addition, the cards can reproduce the effects from a variety of different forms of Magic, such as Water Magic or Sleep Magic, coming in as very versatile, if used the right way. 

Cana’s cards can also be linked to specific individuals, allowing her to gain information about their status and location, as well as to communicate with them. Cana would later gain access to one of the three great spells of the guild Fairy Tail, namely Fairy Glitter. This prompts a large, bright halo of light to surround the target, which rapidly constricts around and heavily damages them.

8. Jellal Fernandes

Age: 20

Height: 5’11”

Birthday: X764

Power: Heavenly Body Magic

It is a powerful Magic based around astronomical objects, such as meteors, stars, and black holes. Jellal generates and manipulates the energy of stars from his body and uses it against his enemy. 

Jellal has shown tremendous mastery over this particular form of Magic such as creating a pole made of energy to block Erza’s sword. He also has access to dark magic due to his “possession” at the hands of “Zeref”. 

He also has access to flame, water, air, and earth magic among many others showing just how truly powerful he is that he was once a cofounder of the Guild Crime Sorciere and their tasks were to take down dark guilds.

9. Mirajane Strauss

Age: 19

Height: 5’3”

Birthday: X765

Power: Take Over

Mirajane is a skilled user of taking Over, a type of Magic which, as the name suggests, allows her to take over the powers and appearances of particular creatures she really “knows”. She shares such Magic with her siblings Elfman and Lisanna, something which made them known as the “Take Over Siblings”. The particular form she employs shares the name of her signature spell Satan Soul. 

Due to the nature of Mirajane’s Take Over, she has the ability to control Demons and manipulate them to do her bidding. Whilst having control over the tentacle Demons, Mirajane was able to cause them to simultaneously explode. 

Mirajane’s Satan Soul is also capable of taking over Demons and Etherious on the brink of death while saving them in the process; although they lose control of their bodies in return.

10. Juvia Lockser

Age: 17

Height: 5’4”

Birthday: X767

Power: Water

Water allows her to produce, control, and manipulate water. She can use the water in a variety of different ways, such as producing blades of water that can even slice through solid rock and metal, creating boiling beams, forming waves of tremendous power and force to damage her opponents, or even trapping opponents in mini-prisons made of her water. 

Juvia also has the ability to turn into water, seemingly without thought, thus allowing both physical and magical attacks to pass through her without harming her.

11. Wendy Marvell

Age: 12

Height: 4’8”

Birthday: X772

Power: Sky Dragon Slayer Magic

Wendy is the Sky Dragon Slayer, which means that she has the same type of Magic as Natsu Dragneel and Gajeel Redfox, but with the ability to manipulate air. Her Magic also allows her to heal people with the gravest of injuries, even those caused by a Dragon. 

Her proficiency in healing allows her to use even just a kiss to heal other people and she can counteract other Magic. Her Magic also has support spells, which can increase attack power and speed, to both herself and her others. 

As stated by Carla, Wendy can eat air, but can’t heal as well in polluted areas. Her Magic also allows her to sense air currents, which can be used to predict the weather.

12. Happy

Age: 6

Height: 0’11”

Birthday: X778

Power: Aera

Happy is able to sprout angelic wings that give him the ability to fly and carry objects or one person at a time for a specific amount of time.

13. Gajeel Redfox

Age: 17

Height: 5’11”

Birthday: X767

Power: Iron-Dragon Slayer Magic

Gajeel’s particular Dragon Slayer Magic deals with the manipulation of iron. Gajeel eats iron to regain his own strength, and his teeth and jaw muscles are powerful enough to gnaw through solid metal with ease, even allowing him to eat the Magic-canceling metal of the Dorma Anim. 

Gajeel’s Magic deals with producing multi-sized iron rods, as well as changing parts of his body into steel. Most of his attacks involve transforming his arms into blunt, metallic weapons, which he can do at will. 

Additionally, Gajeel may turn his iron into steel if he somehow becomes able to absorb trace amounts of carbon; the said process is still toxic and harmful to his body as it would be to others, but the addition of the natural element changes the composition of his spells, allowing him to deal enhanced damage and/or breakthrough defenses that his iron could not.

14. Levy McGarden

Age: 17

Height: 4’11”

Birthday: X767

Power: Solid Script

Levy’s Magic is focused around writing and words: Solid Script, a form of Letter Magic, allows her to generate words in the air and make them solid, subsequently throwing them at the enemies with different effects. 

To create such words, Levy is shown performing gestures with one or both of her hands, depending on the spell. In the year X792, now can generate words by the use of her feet giving her more flexibility with her Magic.

15. Mavis Vermillion

Age: 118

Height: 4’9”

Birthday: X673

Power: Illusion Magic

During her time at Tenrou Island, Mavis was self-taught in Illusion Magic. Her illusions are so detailed that they appear to be truly life-like, and Mavis has used them on occasion to intimidate people, such as by creating fearsome beasts that look deadly and summoning an army of knights. She also has access to Fairy Glitter, Fairy Sphere, Fairy Law, and even Black Arts.

16. Zeref Dragneel

Age: 400+

Height: 5’7”

Birthday: X300

Power: Black Arts

Zeref was able to master Black Magic and brought countless Demons to life. His Magic Power is enormous; so enormous, in fact, that he cannot consciously control his own Magic, though whether this was always the case is unknown. Zeref’s lack of control over his Black Arts seems to come from his emotional state. 

He, himself, has stated that when he cares of the lives of others, his Magic becomes uncontrollable and randomly bursts outward, killing all those around him, but, when he no longer cares about others, he gains complete control over his Magic, and becomes the ruthless, cold-hearted Zeref spoken of in legend.

17. Irene Belserion

Age: 400+

Height: 5’7”


Power: Universe One

Also known as world reconstruction magic, can manipulate the very geography of the ground itself, with the ability to compress the land to as much as five percent (or less) of its original size, thereby altering the entire landscape. She also has access to sage dragon slayer magic and is the original creator of the dragon slayer magic.

18. Acnologia

Age: 400+

Height: 25’


Power: Dragon Slayer Magic

It grants him the ability to reap the very souls of Dragons, leaving them in a half-dead state. Acnologia, from devouring and bathing in the blood of countless dragons, is able to consume any type of Magic element and/or “evil” aura to replenish himself. He also has Time Magic and Healing Magic.

19. Sorano

Age: 25

Height: 5’3” and a half

Birthday: X766

Power: Angel Magic

This Magic revolves around summoning angels, each of which is capable of inflicting different kinds of damage. Sorano is able to summon these angels through the use of golden Angel Coins, with each coin representing a portion of Sorano’s lifespan, and the stronger the angelic being that is summoned, the more coins required, with each Magic Golden Coin equivalent to the cost of 10.

20. Sting Eucliffe

Age: 19

Height: 5’8”

Birthday: X791

Power: White Dragon Slayer Magic

Allows Sting to transform the physiology of his body into that of the White Dragon, allowing him to generate and manipulate light to his every whim. The White Dragon Slayer’s element has been described as being holy, with Sting remarking that his opponents suffer the “judgment of the holy white”. Sting as a White Dragon Slayer has the ability to consume anything White as stated by Sting himself.

21. Rogue Cheney

● Age: 19

● Height: 5’8”

Birthday: X791

Power: Shadow Dragon Slayer Magic

Shadow Dragon Slayer Magic allows Rogue to transform his body into a Shadow Dragon. This allows him to transform into a shadow, allowing him to crawl fast on the ground, walls, and ceilings. He can also use it to enter someone’s shadow for a sneak attack. As a Dragon Slayer, Rogue needs to consume anything Black.
