==Organization==
There is very little information known about the hierarchy of Dark Guilds. All Dark Guilds, like Legal Guilds are run by their respective '''Guild Masters'''. Dark Guilds have '''S-Rank [[Mage]]s''', but it is unknown if they are actually referred to as such. In the [[Grimoire Heart]] Guild they had [[Bluenote Stinger|a Deputy Commander]], or second-in-command of the Guild.<ref>Fairy Tail Manga: Chapter 231, Page 17</ref>

The '''Balam Alliance''' (バラム同盟 ''Baramu Dōmei'') was an alliance between the three most powerful Dark Guilds in [[Fiore]]. Despite being referred to as an alliance, the three Guilds did not interact with each other at all and their "alliance" was nothing more than a non-aggression pact.

|'''[[Oración Seis]]'''
 
|'''[[Oración Seis]]'''
|An extremely powerful Dark Guild, being one of the three ruling Dark Guilds of the Balam Alliance. Though they comprised the smallest guild ever shown with only six members, they had many Dark Guilds under them and were very strong even only as individuals. They attempted to seize [[Nirvana]] and use it to destroy the world, starting with the supposed descendants of its creators at the Legal Guild [[Cait Shelter]] but were barely defeated by the [[Allied Forces]]. After their fall the Guild was dissolved and all members were imprisoned.

|'''[[Grimoire Heart]]'''
|One of the three major Dark Guilds and a member of the Balam Alliance. In X784, it was the strongest Dark Guild in existence. Its members reside in a very large airship that flies over land and sea. Their purpose, to reawaken [[Zeref Dragneel]] and create the [[Ultimate Magic World]] led them to [[Tenrou Island]] where they found [[Fairy Tail (Guild)|Fairy Tail]]'s [[S-Class Mage Promotion Trial]] to be taking place. A war occurred between the two Guilds which Fairy Tail ultimately won. Zeref then killed Hades for apparently summoning [[Acnologia]] with his Guild's actions and disbanded the organization.

|'''[[Tartaros]]'''
|One of the three ruling Dark Guilds of the Balam Alliance made entirely of Demons from the [[Books of Zeref]]. For many years they kept silent, staying completely hidden from the entire world but recently started their movement by intruding [[Era]], massacring the entire Magic Council along with 100 others and leaving many injured. They also assassinated most of the former Council members in their goal to unseal [[Face]], a terrifying weapon of the Council's in order to wipe out all traces of Magic on the continent. The guild was virtually decimated during the ensuing battle between it and Fairy Tail.

Many members of the Guild were seen wielding staffs. As seen, most Mages of the Guild are exceptionally good drawers and use Picto Magic like [[Reedus Jonah]], but the difference is that they use it on paper and not in their bodies. Also, they've been shown to use an ability called [[Unison Pict]] which combines all of their drawings and summons a single creature together using everyone's Magic. Also, another reason for using this Magic might be that some of the drawings are really strong and the users can't call them out single-handedly such as in the case of the [[Wyvern]] they summoned. Even Jura Neekis admired their drawing skills and capabilities but nonetheless defeated the Wyvern as well as all of the members with minimal effort.

Revision as of 19:13, August 19, 2018

Dark Guilds (闇ギルド Yami Girudo) are guilds that are not officially recognized by the Magic Council; therefore, they are treated as criminal organizations.[1] Dark Guilds are typically disdainful of Legal Guilds, seeing that they abide the rules imposed by the Magic Council. Their belief is that the rules of the Council would only limit the full potential of guilds, as they place too many restrictions.

Organization

There is very little information known about the hierarchy of Dark Guilds. All Dark Guilds, like legal guilds, are run by their respective Guild Master. Dark Guilds have S-Class level Mages, but it is unknown if the Mages in question are called "S-Class Mages". In the Grimoire Heart Guild they have a Deputy Commander, or second-in-command, of their guild.[2]

Balam Alliance

The Balam Alliance (バラム同盟 Baramu Dōmei) was an alliance between the three most powerful Dark Guilds in Fiore. Despite being referred to as an alliance, the three guilds do not interact with each other at all, and their alliance is nothing more than a non-aggression pact. In X784, they controlled all Dark Guilds, with the exception of Raven Tail.[3] As of year X792, it is officially defunct.[4]

Red Hood A guild aligned to the Oración Seis that encountered Lyon, Sherry and Jura. They all wear red hoods, as the name suggests. Many members of that guild were seen wielding staffs. As seen most of the Mages of the guild are exceptionally good drawers and use Pict Magic like Reedus Jonah, but the difference is that they use it on paper and not in their bodies. Also they've been show to use an ability called Unison Pict which combines all of their drawings and summons together using everyone's Magic. Also another reason of using this Magic might be that some of the drawings are really strong and the users can't call them out single-handedly such as in the case of the Wyvern they summoned. Even Jura Neekis admired their drawing skills and capabilities but nonetheless defeated the Wyvern as well as all of them with minimal effort. Unknown Unknown Unknown
