Ignia (イグニア Igunia), also known as The Fire Dragon God (炎神竜 Enjinryū), is one of the Five Dragon Gods that inhabit the continent of Guiltina. He is the biological son of the Fire Dragon King Igneel.
Ignia heavily resembles his father, having inherited Igneel’s dark-red scales, beige underside, and horn-tipped nose. Being a dragon, he is large in size with bat-like wings, and sports canine teeth and sharp claws. Ignia bears several caudal spines around his face, with a large crystal-like horn protruding from the top of his head. Two fire-like tattoos can be seen on his chest, and flames radiate off various parts of his body.
In human form, Ignia takes on the appearance of a toned, muscular man. His dark orange hair is styled upwards, with the tips somewhat tinged and two strands framing the sides of his head. He has several red tattoos on his upper body, including flame-like ones on his face, a red sun that covers much of his left pectoral, and a tribal design that runs down his left arm. For attire, Ignia dons loose pants with a fur lining in the middle: the top is dark-colored while the bottom is light. He wears a wrap around his waist, with an apron-like cloth over his pants, bearing diamond shapes and an X-design. Bandages cover his right forearm, and his accessories include three triangular dangling earrings on each ear, and a large gold chain with a cross-shaped pendant around his neck.
Ignia is an arrogant and condescending individual, demonstrating confidence in his superiority while even undermining the strength of fellow Dragon God, Mercphobia. He harbors an extreme obsession with tests of strength, having shown himself willing to go to great lengths in order to satiate his thirst for combat. For the sake of obtaining a formidable opponent, Ignia remains unconcerned about the well-being of those around him, such as carelessly burning the harbor of Ermina with its residents and destroying countless countries. He even goes as far as to threaten the Fairy Tail Mages’ lives in an attempt to rouse Natsu’s anger, indicating a sadistic nature. In addition to this violent mindset, Ignia is also rather callous, having shown little to no emotion over Igneel’s demise.
Ignia existed as far back as the Dragon King Festival. He was born to the Fire Dragon King, Igneel, and an unknown female dragon during the breeding cycle of Dragons. Four hundred years ago, Ignia escaped to Guiltina in order to evade Acnologia, being one of the five dragons who survived and later earned the moniker of the Five Dragon Gods, eventually surpassing the reputed Black Dragon’s power.
