Joining Fairy Tail

Porlyusica treats Erza

Porlyusica treats Erza

After washing up on the shores of Fiore,[3] Erza looks for a certain guild which Rob taught her about, and when she finds it, she joins the guild.[4] Erza acts distant to other Fairy Tail members at first. She also tells Master Makarov about what happened to Rob, Makarov's former friend, in the Tower of Heaven. Makarov then brings Erza to Porlyusica to replace her lost right eye with an artificial one. Porlyusica heals it, but apparently something went wrong as Erza could only cry out of her left eye. Porlyusica offers to redo the medicine to try and fix it, but Erza brushes the idea off, saying that she already cried out half of her tears and that she didn't mind her eye being that way.[5]


Erza's memories

Erza remembers herself passing the exam

As the years pass, Erza becomes more and more strict until she was referred to by others as the guild's disciplinarian. She takes responsibility for breaking up fights between Gray and Natsu Dragneel. At the same time, however, she is driven to constantly fight and bicker with fellow member Mirajane,[6] which eventually ended after Mirajane greatly mellowed out in the wake of her younger sister Lisanna's apparent death in X782. In the year X780, Erza passes Fairy Tail's annually held S-Class Mage Promotion Trial, becoming the youngest member of the guild to do so at fifteen years of age.[7]
