Lucy Heartfilia (ルーシィ・ハートフィリア Rūshi Hātofiria) is a Celestial Spirit Mage, a member of the Fairy Tail Guild and of its Team Natsu. She is the main female protagonist of the series.


Lucy in x791

Lucy's appearance in X791

Lucy has brown eyes and blond hair that is usually tied by ribbons of a variety of colors in a singular bunch to the right side of her head. Though in the year X791, she appears to keep her hair up more often in pigtails. She has large breasts, and a curvaceous body. Her (presumed) measurements are Bust: 91 cm; Waist: 59 cm; Hip: 88 cm (37in, 23in, 36in).These measurements were later on revealed to be approximated slightly different, with the breasts being two centimeters less, and the others, one less.

Her pink Fairy Tail stamp is located at the back of her right hand. Additionally, Lucy does not consistently wear the same outfit. However, she always has a belt that, along with keeping her skirt up, holds her Celestial Spirit keys and a whip with a heart-shaped end. She also wears some sort of high heels. She also bears a striking resemblance to her mother.


Lucy is a bit of a diva who takes exceptional pride in her looks and Magic skills. She is very confident in her appearance and sex appeal, often exuding a certain amount of vanity.[1] Despite this superficial attitude, she is genuinely a clever, kind, and caring person. Lucy is passionate for literature and is in the process of writing her own novel about her adventures with Fairy Tail. Aside from her interest in writing and reading prose, she also likes shopping and cooking, assertive men, and her favorite colors are blue and pink.[2] She is a member of the Heartfilia family, once one of the wealthiest and most influential conglomerate families in the country of Fiore.[3] However, due to her estranged relationship with her father and the death of her mother, Layla Heartfilia, she left home to follow her own path.[4]

Lucy is very kind to her Celestial Spirits, and refuses to use them as shields. She fights alongside them, and treats her spirits as people,[5] unlike other Celestial Spirit mages, who views them as mere tools and objects.[6] She will also go to great lengths to give them happiness, even at the cost of her life. Despite technically being an owner of the spirits, she refuses to be addressed as such, and instead prefers to be called their friend.[7]

Though Lucy is, in most cases, cowardly, she has no problem standing up to fight, take damage, and run straight into danger for the sake of her friends and guild. While her powers are normally not as overwhelming as her teammates', Lucy has proven to be a capable combatant herself, often using her cleverness to her advantage, and thinking outside the box during battle. She has eventually developed Natsu's stubbornness and refusal to give up.[8]


Lucy's name

The reason behind Lucy's name

Lucy was born into the once extremely wealthy and powerful Heartfilia family.[9] Her father and mother were originally part of a merchants' guild called 'Love & Lucky' where the two met; they decided to become independent when Lucy's mother, Layla, became pregnant. They chose her name when they noticed that the sign for the guild was missing the letter "K", and instead read 'Love & Lucy'; it made an impression on them, so they decided to name their daughter after it.[10]

Lucy Young

Lucy as a child.

Back in her home, Lucy shared a good relationship with the staff in the estate[11] as well as, presumably, her mother, until she passed away when Lucy was around the age of ten in the year X777.[12] However, because her father was overly obsessed with his business and money, he had neglected his daughter,[13] which eventually led her to run away from home just over a year before the beginning of the story.[14]


Macao arcEdit

Lucy using her sexappeal

Lucy exudes her sex appeal

Lucy is first introduced lamenting the lack of Magic stores in Hargeon. In the only Magic store in the town, she attempts to get a discount through her sex appeal for the Celestial Spirit Nikora, which costs 20,000 jewels, but is angered when the price is only lowered by 1000 jewels.[15]

Lucy Heartifilia and girls fall for Bora

Lucy falls for Charm

As Lucy fumes in the streets, a ruckus erupts near her which greatly piques her interest. Curious, she heads towards the commotion, hearing the name of the famed Fire Magic user, Salamander (who turned out to actually only be an impostor named Bora).[16] Upon seeing him, her heart begins to flutter quickly, as she slowly moves towards him. This feeling, however, soon disappears when Natsu Dragneel and Happy interrupt the proceedings, thinking Bora is the dragon Igneel. Disappointed to find it was not the Salamander they had been looking for, they instantly move to leave, however, get attacked by Bora's legion of female fans, and eventually get thrown away by them when Natsu refuses Bora's signature.

Lucy treating Natsu and Happy to dinner

Lucy talks to Natsu after she buys him food

Lucy walks up to the two, wishing to thank them by treating them out. She explains that Bora was using the illegal Magic Charm, which attracts people's hearts to the user; Natsu's interruption took away that effect. She goes on to say that she is a Mage looking to join a guild, explaining what such is, as well. Remembering that the two were looking for someone, she asks as to who it is. They reply that it is the dragon Igneel which shocks her, making her remark that such a thing would never be in the town. She goes to leave, but Natsu wishes to thank her by offering Bora's signature, which she dramatically refuses. He and Happy instead kneel, and bow down fully in gratitude, to Lucy's embarrassment.[17]

Lucy confronts Bora

Lucy confronts Bora

Later, on a park bench, she reads about the exploits of the guild Fairy Tail in the Sorcerer Magazine when Bora suddenly appears before her, from the bushes, having eavesdropped on her. Unbeknownst to Lucy, he casts the Charm Magic upon her once again as he offers to help her join Fairy Tail if she joins his boat party later that night. She agrees, dressing up for the occasion.[18] On the boat, Bora offers her a drink, but she slaps it away, remarking that it is a sleeping drug and that she has no intentions of becoming his girl. He then reveals himself to be a slave trader and plans to sell Lucy along with the other girls on the boat. With his goons holding her still, he takes her Celestial Spirit keys, and, as they are useless to him, throws them out the window.[19]

Aquarius when she was first summoned

Lucy summons Aquarius

Just as Lucy is about to be branded, Natsu suddenly crashes through the roof and Happy helps Lucy escape. Happy's Magical wings soon wear off, and they both drop into the sea, where Lucy dives underwater and miraculously finds her keys. With them, she calls upon her Celestial Spirit Aquarius who, after a warning to never drop the keys again, summons a powerful wave that shipwrecks Bora's boat ashore. Aquarius, however, catches Lucy and Happy in her wave as well and flushes them aboard the boat.

Natsu, Lucy, and Happy running from Rune Knights

Lucy runs away with Natsu and Happy

From there, Lucy worriedly rushes to help Natsu, who turns out to be completely competent in battle, actually being a Mage himself. Using his Fire Dragon Slayer Magic, Natsu easily defeats Bora and his goons, but overdoes it, thus destroying a large portion of Hargeon's port. The arrival of military soldiers forces them to run away from the scene; Natsu grabs onto Lucy and tells her that if she follows him, she can join Fairy Tail.[20]

Fairy Tail Guild at first seen by Lucy

Lucy's first time coming to Fairy Tail

A day or so later, Lucy arrives at the Fairy Tail guild, in awe and mostly shocked at the many varied personalities of its members. A brawl develops in front of her, started by Natsu, and during that fight, she meets the other members, Gray Fullbuster and Mirajane Strauss. She also comments that none of the guild members are acting normal. The brawl is eventually stopped by Fairy Tail's Guild Master Makarov before it escalates into one with usages of Magic. Makarov initially begins to scold the members for their destructive actions, but soon breaks into an inspiring speech about following the way of Fairy Tail. Night falls, and Lucy opts to have her member stamp on the back of her right hand.[21]

Natsu, Lucy, and Happy at Mt Hakobe during summer

Lucy and Natsu arrive at Mt. Hakobe

Natsu is looking for another job on the guild's request board, but overhears that Macao Conbolt, a Fairy Tail member, has been missing for a week, and his son Romeo wishes for Makarov to look for him; to which the latter refuses. Natsu punches the board and leaves with Happy. Curious, Lucy asks Mirajane Strauss what is wrong with him, and she explains that perhaps, Natsu sees his own past happening with Romeo; in the past, his foster parent, Igneel the fire dragon, disappeared so suddenly. Out of curiosity, Lucy decides to go along with them into the furiously snowing mountains and begins to regret coming because of the sheer cold. Stealing Natsu's blanket and wrapping herself up in it, she then summons her Celestial Spirit Horologium, a clock spirit with a compartment where she can hide herself in for warmth.[22]

Vulcan sees Lucy

Lucy is held captive by the Vulcan

One Vulcan, a monster Macao had been subduing, suddenly appears and attacks Natsu before kidnapping Lucy, as it likes women.[23] The Vulcan takes her to its cave, where it parades around her until Horologium disappears. As the Vulcan advances, Natsu catches up and demands to know where Macao is. Just as the Vulcan appears to confide Macao's whereabouts, he abruptly pushes Natsu off a cliff instead. Enraged and horrified, Lucy summons the (perverted) Zodiac Spirit, Taurus.[24]

Natsu, Lucy and Macao return home

Lucy and Natsu return with Macao

Taurus and the Vulcan immediately sets to battle, but stops as Natsu reappears, having been saved by Happy. He knocks out Taurus, thinking it is another monster. Natsu then fights and swiftly defeats the Vulcan. Much to their surprise, the Vulcan is actually Macao, who had been "taken over" by the Vulcan's Magic. Having been smashed into the wall, Macao falls through a hole in the wall and is saved from falling down the mountain, thanks to the combined efforts of Natsu, Happy, Lucy and the revived Taurus. Macao, now back up, is found to be seriously wounded, and Natsu resorts to the extreme of burning one of Macao's wounds shut, which brings him back to consciousness. He tells them that he had successfully subdued 19 other Vulcans, but had been taken over by the twentieth one. At this, Lucy feels she is no match for them. They return to Fairy Tail's town, Magnolia, and Macao and his son Romeo reunites.[25]

Daybreak arcEdit

Lucy's agresion

Lucy vs Natsu and Happy; 1:0

As Lucy is settling into her new home, she finds that Natsu and Happy have brazenly broke in. As she attacks and scolds him, Happy sharpens his nails on the wall, distracting her from Natsu, who then peeks at her writings. She dives for them, keeping them away from Natsu, and demands that they leave, to which Natsu refuses.

Lucy and Plue

Lucy and Plue make a contract

Giving up, she offers the two a cup of tea. Lucy teaches them about Celestial Spirits keys and the fundamentals of making contracts with them. She summons the Spirit of her recently-bought Nikora key. His peculiar appearance stirred Natsu and Happy's pities, believing Plue to be a failure on Lucy's part. She argues that that Nikora is a canine Spirit, and proceeds to contract him. In a "language" that only Natsu seems to understand, Plue apparently suggests that they should form a team, to which both Mages adheres. Their first mission is to steal a book, which involves an owner looking to hire a blonde maid, which makes Lucy think Natsu tricked her.[26]

Episode 3 - Kaby raised the reward

Kaby announces the raise of the reward

Upon arriving in the Town of Shirotsume, Natsu complains of hunger and goes off to a restaurant with Happy, while Lucy leaves them be to look around town. She returns in a maid costume, shocking both of them as they had only meant it as a joke. Regardless, they go to their client, Kaby's house to discuss the mission, and are stunned to discover the reward has been raised by ten times.[27]

Go home, ugly

Duke Everlue says Lucy is "ugly"

Impassioned, they head to Duke Everlue's mansion, where Lucy attempts to be hired, but is rejected for being too ugly for Everlue's taste.[28] With infiltration no longer an option, they resort to invasion, coming through the roof of the mansion. They try to sneak around to find the book, but are quickly found by Everlue's maids, who are instantly defeated by Natsu.[29]

Lemme read

Lucy decides to read the book

They eventually come across a library, and after a bit of searching, find the book they have been hired to destroy: DAYBREAK. Just as Natsu is about to destroy it, Lucy snatches it off him, claiming that it is a book by the famous author, Kemu Zeleon, and that she has never seen it before. She refuses to allow Natsu to incinerate the book. Everlue appears at this moment, diving up from the floor, and after a short appraisal of his own genius, summons the Vanish Brothers to deal with the Fairy Tail Mages.[30]

Episode 4 - Everlue restrains Lucy

Everlue restrains Lucy

Amidst the commotion, Lucy skims the book and discovers something within the contents that makes her rush off. She asks Natsu to buy her some time, as she apparently decodes the hidden meaning.[31] She somehow makes it into to the mansion's sewers and through the enhanced reading speed provided by her Gale-Force Reading Glasses, Lucy successfully discovers the secret within the book. Everlue abruptly reappears and ambushes her, grabbing her arms and threatening to break them unless she tells him her discovery.[32] She says nothing, but is released when Happy strikes Everlue in the face.[33]

Lucy and Cancer defeats Everlue

Lucy and Cancer beat Duke Everlue

Lucy and Everlue engage in battle. Lucy reveals Everlue's selfish nature when he tells how he had forced Kemu Zaleon to make the book about him. Not only that, but the book contained a further secret which proved he didn't deserve it. With this declaration, she summons the Celestial Spirit Cancer. Everlue summons his own Celestial Spirit, Virgo, in response, but Natsu accidentally arrives with her, because he grabbed her formerly. At Lucy's request, he punches Virgo into the ground while she and Cancer defeat Everlue.[34]

Daybreak's Magic

DAYBREAK's letters re-arrange

They return to Kaby's mansion and Lucy returns the book. He initially wishes to burn it, much to Natsu's chagrin. Kirby then explains his past and why he wishes to get rid of the book. However, just as he is about to proceed with incinerating it, the book bursts into life - the letters rearrange themselves with the book's title, becoming DEAR KABY. Lucy explains that Zaeleon had placed a spell on the book and had written it to his son, Kaby.[35] Much to her dismay, Natsu and Happy then say they cannot accept the reward because they had not specifically done what was asked. While they return on the path home, Natsu realizes that Lucy's earlier protectiveness over her writings was because she was writing a book herself. Embarrassed, she desperately asks for him not to tell anyone.[36]

Lullaby arcEdit

Loke runs away when he realised that Lucy is Celestial Spirit Mage

Loke finds out that Lucy is a Celestial Spirit Mage

Now back at the guild, Lucy looks for another request poster and while talking to Mirajane Strauss, learns of the organization of guilds and the existence of illegal guilds, called Dark Guilds. Natsu frightens her as she talks, then goes on to hurry her to find a new job for them as he and Happy had chose last time. However, she no longer wishes to work with him. Gray explains that she should feel no need to team up with anyone, complimenting her on her work which she explains was really all Natsu. As Natsu and Gray begin to brawl, Loke flirts with her, but quickly runs away when he finds out she is a Celestial Spirit Mage - he then returns to tell Natsu and Gray that the S-Class Mage Erza Scarlet has returned.[37]

Aye sir Erza

Lucy impressed by Natsu and Gray's "sudden friendship"

Erza accordingly arrives with the large horn of a demon she has slain, and after scolding several members, turns to Gray and Natsu, who are acting like Happy (according to Lucy), and asks them to help her with a mission. Although Natsu and Gray both refuse, it seems to have fallen on deaf ears, as Erza immediately sets forth. Mirajane heralds the creation of this team as possibly "The Strongest Team" in Fairy Tail.[38]

Lucy after introducing herself

Lucy, after she introduces herself to Erza

Mirajane also asks Lucy to tag along, in order to keep Gray and Natsu from getting into their habitual fist fights. On the day of their departure, in the train station, she keeps the two from breaking into a brawl by lying that Erza is approaching. Upon her arrival, Lucy introduces herself, as Natsu challenges Erza to a fight, once their mission ends, to which she readily accepts.[39]

Erza doing Natsu a favor

Lucy watches Erza punch Natsu

The team bounds the train, and, after knocking Natsu out to relieve him from his motion sickness, Erza explains about the mission. On her last job, Erza has apparently overheard guild members conversing about an accursed object called Lullaby, and of a Mage named Erigor. She admits that she failed to recognized the gravity of the overheard conversation, and only realized her mistake upon returning home. She recalled he was a member of the Dark Guild Eisenwald, and claimed such people would be up to no good. The mission she had planned was to walk into Eisenwald and destroy them.[40]

Lucy and her team forget about Natsu

Lucy and the team forget about Natsu...

Completely preoccupied with the mission briefing, the team bounds of the vehicle. A moment too late, they realize that a still unconscious Natsu had been forgotten in their compartment.[41] They rush back to retrieve him, as Erza gets Happy to use an emergency stop signal lever to stop the train. They race towards it on a Magical four-wheeled train.[42][43] Just as they arrive at the train, Natsu crashes out of one of the windows and lands headfirst into Gray.[44]

Lucy has to carry Natsu

Lucy annoyed while carrying Natsu

After a bit of convenient amnesia, he informs them that he got attacked on the train by a member of the Eisenwald guild who had a strange flute, with a skull with three eyes. This description jogs Lucy's memory of a story about the cursed flute Lullaby, which kills anyone who hears melodies played from it.[45] With this shocking revelation in hand, they rush towards the train station.[46] On the way there, Happy mentions that he meant to tell Lucy something, but had forgotten, and as they try to enter the station, Lucy carries Natsu in - though she causes his motion sickness doing this as she is considered as a means of transport.[47]

Too cute to be harmed

Lucy saying she's too cute to be harmed

Inside, they are confronted by Eisenwald and Erigor, who explains his plan to use the station's loudspeakers to broadcast Lullaby. Distracted by Erigor, Gray and Erza failed to notice one of Eisenwald's members, Kageyama, attacking Lucy. Natsu, however, manages to save her in the nick of time.[48] Erigor then flees, and Erza orders Natsu and Gray to chase after him while she and Lucy deal with the rest of his Dark Guild. Using her Magic, The Knight, Erza quickly dispatches all of their foes, but one escapes which she calls upon Lucy to give chase to.[49]

Virgo fixes Lucys skirt

Virgo covering Lucy after they pass the wall

Lucy, along with Happy, loses sight of him and eventually reconvenes with the others beside a stabbed Kageyama.[50] The two then find out that they have been trapped in a barrier of impassable wind, having been tricked by Erigor. At this moment, Happy finally remembers his message for Lucy—upon Virgo's request, the Maiden's Ggold key previously owned by Duke Everlue, was to be transferred to Lucy's ownership. Foregoing the usual process of contracting, Lucy summons Virgo and asks for the latter to use her superior digging powers to create a safe path of escape. Natsu immediately rushes ahead with Happy to defeat Erigor.[51]

Kageyama Talks to Gray and Lucy

Lucy with Gray and Kageyama in the vehicle

Bringing with them the injured Kageyama, Lucy, Erza, and Gray continue to travel along the train tracks, and eventually stumbles upon Natsu, who had successfully defeated Erigor. As the team rejoices, Kageyama unexpectedly makes a break for it, taking with him the flute. He aims to complete Eisenwald's original mission, which was to assassinate all the Guild Masters present in the annual meaning held in the town of Clover.[52] Team Natsu rushes to subdue him, however, they eventually discover that their assistance had not been needed, as Master Makarov managed to sway Kageyama from his original purpose.

FT running away

Lucy and Fairy Tail run away

The Guild Masters as well as Team Natsu begin to celebrate their apparent victory when all of a sudden, the flute begins to "speak", and manifests as a gargantuan demonic form, which was said to be the true embodiment of the cursed "Lullaby" .[53] Erza, Natsu, and Gray engages it into melee and swiftly defeats the monster. Their battle, however, inadvertently destroys the regular guild meeting hall, prompting all the Fairy Tail members to make a quick getaway.[54]

Galuna Island arcEdit

Lucy and S-Class quest

Lucy finds out Happy stole an S-Class Mission

Natsu and Happy invites Lucy to embark on an S-Class Mission. She is horrified to discover that, enticed by the hefty reward of such mission, Happy stole the mission's flyer. He attempts to relieve her by saying it was the least-paying one out of the available S-class jobs.[55] Lucy eventually concedes upon learning that a Golden Key will also be given as reward.

Gray found Natsu and Lucy

Lucy and Natsu are found by Gray

As the trio prepares to leave for Galuna Island, several sailors and fishermen discourage them, claiming that the island is haunted. Their refusal stalled the Mages, and Gray eventually catches up to them. He had originally intended to bring them back to the guild, however, gets sidetracked as Natsu daunts him, and is forced to join.[56] Together, they head for Galuna Island, accompanied by Bobo--the only fisherman who braved to set sail towards the accursed island.

The group continues forth, when Bobo abruptly disappears in the middle of the sea. Worried, Happy dives into the ocean to search for him underwater, but to no avail. As he resurfaces, Lucy and the rest of the team watches in horror as a gigantic tidal wave appears before them, and eventually engulfs their little boat.[57]

Gray and Natsu beats Angelica

Lucy watching Angelica being beaten

Presumably a day after they crashed ashore, Lucy regains consciousness first, and asks if the others are fine as well. After Gray concedes to accompany them entirely, they venture into the island, and eventually meet the denizens of Galuna and learn of the curse inflicting them that had apparently turned them into demons. The mayor of the town also asks them to destroy the moon, believing it will free them from the curse.[58] Realizing that the task he requires is impossible, Lucy and the others decide to investigate the island, and they encounter and defeat a giant mouse named Angelica, which leads them to a huge temple where they discover the monster Deliora.[59]

Lucy tries to stop Sherry

Lucy tries to stop Sherry

After learning about the plot to free Deliora and destroy the town, Lucy and Happy hurries off to warn and save the townsfolk.[60] Lucy prepares very simple traps in front of the entrance to the village, which Happy pokes fun at. Natsu, who was rushing towards to the village, falls in, however. After all the work Lucy had put into it, their opponents effortlessly flies over the village, preparing to drop a poisonous substance. Natsu redirects the poison and Virgo saves the mayor from being hit, but the village is destroyed.[61] As Sherry Blendi, one of the people behind the scheme, flies off with her mouse Angelica, Lucy grabs on and tickles the mouse, and they all end up crashing to the ground.[62]

Lucy beats Sherry

Lucy beats Sherry.

When they both recover from the fall, they start to fight off against each other. Lucy immediately summons Taurus, however, is surprised to discover Sherry's Magic allows her to puppeteer anything that is not human. As Taurus turns against her, Lucy miraculously achieves Forced Gate Closure, which is said to be one of the greatest feats of any Celestial Spirit Mage.[63] As the battle draws near, Lucy realizes they are approaching the ocean, and summons Aquarius, knowing of the Spirit's uncanny tendency to attack both friend or foe regardless.[64] After Aquarius's attack, both Mages are stunned and dizzy. Lucy takes the opportunity to defeat Sherry. However, before Sherry loses consciousness, she commands her pet rat, Angelica, to avenge her. Lucy is about to be squished by Angelica, when Erza unprecedentedly shows up. The latter then saves Lucy, but immediately apprehends her, stating that her only purpose was to retrieve the team who ran away.[65]

Lucy and Happy tieded

Lucy is caught and bound by Erza.

Gray argues and stands up to Erza, managing to convince her to abandon her original purpose momentarily, in order to complete the S-Class mission. Lucy and Happy are visibly relieved by this, however, both are terrified as soon as Erza reminds them of the punishment that awaits them at home.[66]

After Lyon Vastia is defeated and Deliora is found to be dead, they head towards the camp set up for the villagers, but no one is there. As it turns out, the village went back to normal as if someone reversed time. With the mayor still insistent on destroying the moon, Erza discovers the truth about the island, and she and Natsu apparently destroy it, effectively lifting the curse from Galuna Island. In actuality, the exhaust fumes from the Moon Drip crystallized and created a layer in the sky, covering the entire island, and what they had destroyed wasn't the moon itself, but the aforesaid layering.[67][68]

Lucy can't believe

Lucy's reaction after knowing that all the villagers are demons

Without the layer in the sky, everything returns back to normal again. The people of the village are revealed to have been demons to begin with, and the "curse" that befell upon them was actually the side-effects the holy Moon Drip has on demons. It trampled with their memories, deluding them into believing they were humans all along.[69] As their first S-Class Mission is finally over, Erza declines the reward, but takes the Gold Key when the villagers say that it was a sign of their friendship.[70]
