The team consists of seven extremely powerful, deadly Mages, who have each been personally trained and raised by their Guild Master, Hades. Because each one of them is able to use Lost Magic, Hades considers them unbeatable. Even Yomazu, a Mage who was able to fight on par with, and temporarily overwhelm, Gajeel Redfox, a Mage renowned for his phenomenal strength and fighting prowess, claimed that before the Seven Kin, he stood no chance, not even against a single one of them. They are the Dark Guild's main attack force and are the primary reason that Grimoire Heart reigns over the other Dark Guilds as the strongest.
- Ultear Milkovich: The manipulative, mysterious daughter of Ur is the eldest of the Seven Kin of Purgatory, as well as their former leader before her defection with Meredy.

Find the keys to Zeref's seal
The Seven Kin of Purgatory, throughout the years, searched for magical keys that were said to be able to "awaken" the infamous Dark Mage, Zeref. In order to find all of the keys, the team were willing to destroy the cities that were blocking their path and to exterminate all the cities' residents. The only exception was Meredy, who became a member of the Seven Kin of Purgatory after her own home was destroyed by the group. They managed to find all of them, however, it was later revealed, by Zeref himself, that the keys' ability to awaken The Black Wizard was merely a myth forged by his worshipers.

Infiltrate Tenrou Island
The Seven Kin of Purgatory were assigned to infiltrate Tenrou Island and defeat all of the Fairy Tail members, as well as to capture Zeref along the way. The team led the attack on the island, but they were later defeated by the Fairy Tail Mages. Ultimately, the mission was a critical failure. Zeref escaped, and, in the end, Rustyrose and Kain remained the only active members out of the Seven Kin of Purgatory.
