This is it: The Fairy Tail prequel fans have been waiting for! Series creator Hiro Mashima himself draws an all-new series that depicts the founding of the Fairy Tail guild.
Many years ago, Mavis Vermilion was a servant at the Red Lizard wizard guild on Sirius Island. Mistreated by the guild master and his daughter Zera, Mavis nonetheless stays positive, because her mother once told her that fairies never visit people who cry about their problems. When the guild comes under attack, Mavis pulls Zera from the wreckage into the forest, but Zera dies from her injuries. Seven years later, the powerful wizards Warrod Sequen, Precht, and Yuri Dreyer arrive on the island, seeking a powerful jade gemstone. This journey will change the course of magical history…
Story Locale: The magical land of Fiore
Series Overview: In X679, years before the events of Fairy Tail, the founders of the guild gather on what is to become the guild’s “holy ground,” Sirius Island, to create a new kind of wizard guild - one where loyalty, justice, and a pioneering spirit will trump petty politics.
