Carla to Shagotte about Extalia in "One Wing"

Carla (シャルル Sharuru) is an Exceed, the daughter of Queen Shagotte, and a close companion to Wendy Marvell. She and Wendy belonged to Cait Shelter before joining Fairy Tail. After the disbandment of Fairy Tail, Carla, along with Wendy, joined Lamia Scale.[3] Subsequent to the conclusion of the war between Orochi's Fin and Lamia Scale,[4] Carla leaves Lamia Scale and helps Natsu[5] resurrect Fairy Tail.[6]


Carla is a small, white Exceed with pink ears and brown eyes, which are smaller than Happy's eyes. She also has two whiskers on each side of her face. Carla wears a pink bow near the end of her tail. Carla's usual top consists of a mustard yellow and red top with a pink bow tie. She wears a pink skirt with this top. Carla, like other characters, seems to switch outfits on a regular basis.[7][8][9] When Carla uses Magic, she sprouts two angel-like wings to fly. Her pink Guild Mark is located on her back.


Carla smiles

Unlike the carefree Happy, Carla is very strict and serious most of the time, rarely showing emotions.[10] She cares about Wendy like a mother. She was at first very aloof, turning her nose up at seemingly everyone saves for Wendy. She also tries to get Wendy to break away from her timid personality, scolding her often for it.[11]

As she learned about her mission as an Exceed, she was shocked and sad. She displayed a troubled look when she thought about her mission, which was later revealed to be a prophecy involving Extalia's demise due to her ability to see the future which she inherited from her mother.[12]

Carla's initial attitude towards Happy

Happy instantly took a liking to her from the moment they met, but she, at first, despised him. Later, when they learned the "truth" of the mission, he defended her by saying they are Mages of Fairy Tail, not puppets. She started accepting him after seeing his determination to save their friends, as well as from seeing him showing a more serious and brave side, having earlier referred to him as male cat and ignored his gifts in the form of fish.[13] Happy saved Carla when they escaped, and she almost fell out of a wagon. She, in turn, saved him from the Edolas Royal Army soldiers by taking a direct blast aimed for him. She also had extreme confidence and no doubts when Happy flew off on his own. When Lily was mentioned as being the strongest out of their group, she put up a smirk and tempted Happy into having a match against him. Recently, she has smiled more (usually with Happy nearby), danced with him when he asked, and even laughed when Happy pointed out Lily's cute side.[14][15]

She also has a fondness for Darjeeling Tea and does not like tomcats.[1]

Magic and Abilities

Carla utilizes Aera with her Magic Seal

Aera ((エーラ) Ēra): Much like Happy, Carla can also use Aera, allowing her to sprout wings on her back and fly.[16] She is strong enough to carry one person while in flight.[17]

  • Max Speed (MAXスピード Makkusu Supīdo): Just like her fellow Exceed, Happy, Carla can utilize considerable amounts of Magic Power in order for her to fly as fast as she can. Because of this, however, Carla experiences rapid loss of Magic Power, in relation how long the user uses this technique.[18]
  • Scratch (ひっかき Hikkaki): Carla uses her wings to fly horizontally, scratching targets in her path.[19]

Carla using her Transformation Magic

Transformation Magic (変身魔法 Henshin Mahō): After one year, Carla has trained herself to able to transform into a human. This transformation makes her appear to be a young girl around Wendy's age. She keeps her tail with its red ribbon and has shoulder length hair with cat ears on top. In this form Carla's Magic is increased by a bit. As a result her precognitive abilities are enhanced as well.[20]

Precognition (予知 Yochi): Carla has the same ability to predict what and when something will happen as her mother, Shagotte. She is the only other Exceed to have this ability.[21]

Hand-to-Hand Combatant: Carla has been shown to use swift and powerful kicks in her human form.

  • White Moon (ホワイトムーン Howaito Mūn): Carla cartwheels into a dropkick on top of her opponent's head. Her kick is strong enough to bring down a member of Orochi's Fin.[22]

Former Magic and Abilities

Yokai Form: While under the effects of Yoko's Demons' Parade, Carla is transformed into a Yokai called Suiko. While in this form, Carla's appearance changes into a large quadruped tiger while also wearing her enlarged bow near the end of her tail.[23]

  • Spirit Power (霊力 Reiryoku): While in this form, Carla gains access to this spiritual power while also being enhanced several times by Yoko.[24]
  • Ice Resistance: While in this form, Carla is able to resist being frozen by Gray's Magic.[25]


  • Throughout translated media of Fairy Tail, there has been some confusion regarding whether the correct romanization of her name is "Charle/Charles" or "Carla". However, both versions can be considered correct, as according to the author, Hiro Mashima, "I think it was the name of a princess from a book that I have read a long time ago. However, in the West, there are a lot of countries in which the Charle is a masculine name, thus in some countries, her name may be different".[26]
