Joining Fairy Tail

In front of the First Fairy Tail Building, Cana finds herself face-to-face with her father for the first time. While the timid Cana tries to tell him that she is his daughter, Gildarts advises her to go home or she will wind up reeking of booze. He then leaves for a mission, leaving Cana astonished that he didn't recognize her. While waiting for her father's return, Cana is invited into the guild by Fairy Tail Mages Macao and Wakaba.[2] The invitation leads to Cana coming back to the guild every day, waiting for her father's return. Cana eventually joins the guild and, after several months, is introduced to Gildarts by Macao and Wakaba, but he vaguely remembers her.[3]
