History (Fairy Tail Manga) Edit
Erza was conceived around 400 years ago by Irene Belserion the Queen of Dragnof and the General from a foreign country. However, as a side effect, her mother having learned Dragon Slayers Magic soon became Dragon and went rampage, Destroying her country and killing her husband, who had turned on against her.
She was kept from growing in Irene's womb by magical means. She remained unborn during Irene's several-hundred-year-long physical stint as a Dragon, and was finally born after her mother, who regained her human shape courtesy of Zeref Dragneel.
Her mother though was still initially expressed her lack of care at the fact that she was still physiologically a Dragon, but was eventually struck with insanity when the physical sensations and consequences of being a Dragon carried over. Sad, Irene stated that she only wanted to give birth to her child as a human, but soon became deluded with the idea that if she could enchant herself unto her unborn child and give birth, she would have a human body again. Irene tried and failed, she soon abandoned by her due her her fear that she would someday hurt her due her growing insanity. She left her as a baby on the doorstep of orphanage at Rosemary Village.Years Erza's village was attack by Cultists who followed Zeref. Erza managed to save a fellow villager Kagura Mikazuchi in crate. However sadly she was not so lucky and was soon captured and taken to the Tower of Heaven as a slave a large tower being built by the cult in order to resurrect Zeref of the coast of Caelum. She was imprisoned together with several other slaves, most of them were children from other parts of Ishgar. She eventfully made friends with Jellal Fernades, Millianna, Simon, Wally Buchanan, and Sho.
While they were asking each other for their names, she said that her name was just "Erza," so Jellal decided to give her the surname "Scarlet" after her scarlet hair so they would never forget it. Erza also bonded with a fellow slave and an Elderly wizard form the Fairy Tail Guild .One day in X776, Sho came up with a plan for the eleven-year-old Erza and all their friends to escape from the tower. They were unfortunately caught by the guards, who decided to send the escape's mastermind to the tower's disciplinary chamber, while the rest would be deprived of food for three days. Seeing how fearful Shô was, Erza prepared to take the blame herself, but Jellal announced himself as the mastermind instead. However, the guards reasoned that Erza was the one responsible and sent her to the disciplinary chamber, where she was tortured to the brink of death and lost her right eye. Jellal rescued her, but was captured soon after. Finally fed up with their torment, Erza staged a revolt against their captors so they could escape and save Jellal.
The revolt appeared to be successful at its inception until the tower's Mages arrived to repress the slaves, causing most of the other slaves to retreat. During the attack, Erza watched in horror as her friend Simon's lower jaw was blasted off by a magical attack, while Rob sacrificed himself to defend Erza from another Mage's attack. In her rage, Erza's latent Magic Power was activated for the first time, and she used it to turn all of the discarded weapons and tools around her against the guards, finishing the revolt.As the other slaves boarded ships meant to ensure their freedom, she reunited with Jellal, but discovered that he had changed; the kind and compassionate boy she knew him to be was suddenly twisted and violent, using Magic to slaughter the defenseless guards around them. Jellal had been possessed by what he claimed to be the spirit of Zeref (When it was actually the work of a younger Ultear Milkovich under Hades's orders), and decided that the only way for them to attain true freedom was to complete the Tower of Heaven and revive Zeref. Erza refused to help him, prompting Jellal to cast her out of the tower by herself, only letting her live because she helped take care of all the guards who would have opposed him. Before letting her escape, Jellal told Erza to keep the Tower of Heaven a secret from the government, as well as to never return to the tower, threatening to destroy the tower and kill everyone in it, including their friends, if she disobeyed.
After washing up on the shores of Fiore, Erza made her way to and joined the Fairy Tail Guild. She habitually began to wear armor and she was acting distant from the other members. After Gray Fullbuster, who tried picking fights with the reclusive Erza, saw her crying by herself and questioned her about it as a result she began to open up to her guildmates more. Around this time, Fairy Tail's master Makarov Dreyar brought Erza to see Porlyusica, who gave her an artificial eye to replace the one she lost. With her eye healed Erza shed tears of joy, which only came out of her real, left eye, though Erza didn't mind as she said she had already shed half of her tears.
Erza then spent the rest of her childhood training and hanging Gray and Natsu Dragneel who she saw as siblings. She also had a fierce rivalry with Mirajane Strauss. When she was 15 years old Erza took the S-Class Trials and was promoted to an S-Class Wizard becoming the youngest known one in recorded history.
A year before meeting Lucy Heartfillia she encountered a girl in under the alias of Mulan Rouge(Who later be known as Bisca Connell posing as a wizard from Fairy Tail. Outraged by the thought, the red-headed Mage stormed into the dessert shop and confronted the phony, thrusting a large blade through the table where she was lounging. Bisca responded by snatching her panties and fleeing the scene, only to be punched through a wall and into the pool hall by the rampaging Erza. She attempted to retaliate against her attacker with a series of gunshots, only for Erza to deflect them with a few swings of her sword.
Bisca accepted defeat and begged for mercy on the grounds that she was only trying to help her pet mouse Sunny and buy food, but was met with another beating from Erza, who refused to allow anyone to disgrace the name of her guild. The S-Class Mage seemingly accepted Bisca's apology before inviting her to join Fairy Tail if she needed a legitimate way to find work. As she watched Erza leave the scene, Bisca asked the redhead for her name, and, upon hearing it, concluded that Erza was a truly cool person. After casting aside the alias of Mulan Rouge, Bisca joined Fairy Tail.
About a year so later Erza was on mission which the extermination of monster that didn't survive it's encounter with her. As thanks the locals decorated one of the monster's claws for her and gave as trophy. On her way home she stop by a local bar were she heard that the Dark Guild Esisanwald was planning something big.
After returning to the Guild she took the opportunity to point out the faults in her guild mates. She then got down to business and asked Natsu Dragneel and Gray to accompany her on mission.
The next day at the train station, she meets up with them including Lucy Heartfillia who agreed to ome along in case Natsu and Gray start fighting.
On the train to Onibus she explains the contents of the mission to them. Minus Natsu who she knocked Erza to ease his motion sickness. They are so caught up with their discussion that they accidentally leave Natsu on the train, prompting Erza to temporarily stop the train via its emergency stop signal and chase after him on a borrowed Magic Vehicle.After catching up with Natsu, they find out Kageyama a member of Esisanwald. After Erza scolds for not stopping him, he says saw him holding a skull shaped flute. Which Lucy recognizes as the power as the dark magic Lullaby that kills anyone who listens to its music.
After that they all start rushing to nearby city of Oshibana, where they find Eisenwald waiting for them inside the local train station. Before escaping with the Lullaby, Erigor claims to use the Lullaby to kill everyone in the city. She sends Natsu and Grayy after while she and Lucy handle the Esainwald members. In complete one-sided battle defeats majority of them single handily.
After the fight she sends Lucy after the others. Having used majority of her magic power in the fight and using the Magic Vehicle at full speed she starts to feel a little exhausted. she goes outside to evacuate the citizens gathered around the station. However, Erigor reappears and casts a Wind Wall around the station, trapping Erza inside.
