to the Fairy Tail guild.

Fairy Tail is a guild of wizards that typically regard each other as family, though they are very violent towards one another. It is regarded as one of the strongest guilds, but due to the constant collateral damage during their missions, they do not have a very good reputation. It has been said that everyone in Fairy Tail carries the wounds of a sad past. The strongest members of the guild are called S-class, which currently consist of Gildarts, a man said to be only second to Makarov,Erza, and Mirajane. Before they left the guild, Laxus and Mystogan were also recognized as S-class mages of Fairy Tail.
