Grandeeney (グランディーネ Gurandīne) was a female Dragon known as The Sky Dragon (天竜 Tenryū) and was the foster mother of Wendy Marvell.

Appearance

Grandeeney is a large, four-legged Dragon, whose appearance differs considerably from a traditional Dragon's appearance. She has a white body, which appears to be covered in tissue similar to bird legs, rather than scales. Her feet resemble bird talons as well. Her head is covered in what appears to be fur and her skull is somewhat broad and flat. The fur extends down the neck and to the upper chest region.[1]

Personality

Grandeeney seems to enjoy poking at people's sensitive areas. She is unafraid of making other Dragons unhappy by bringing up things that may, likely, be a sore subject to them.[2]

According to Wendy, her foster daughter, Grandeeney is a very gentle Dragon who has very positive emotions towards humans.[3]

History

Over four hundred years ago, Grandeeney was present during the Dragon Civil War, and was acquainted with Zirconis.[4] At some unspecified point during the aforementioned four hundred years past, Grandeeney's soul was taken by Acnologia's Dragon Slayer Magic, which left her in a half-dead state.[5]

The Sky Dragon and Slayer

Grandeeney and young Wendy

Many years later, Grandeeney would find and raise a human girl named Wendy Marvell. Grandeeney taught Wendy the ancient Sky Dragon Slayer Magic, particularly, Healing Spells. However, on July 7, X777, Grandeeney hid herself in Wendy's body via a secret art[6] (also creating a way in which she could prolong her life, which was damaged by Acnologia),[5] which allowed her to create antibodies to prevent her from turning into a Dragon like Acnologia as well as to wait until the time was right to kill the Black Dragon.[7] Unfortunately, this left her unable to teach the young girl how to use her Dragon Slayer Magic for combative purposes.[8] Some time later, Grandeeney came into contact with her human Edolas counterpart, Porlyusica, and gave her instructions on how to perform two powerful Sky Dragon Slayer Magic Spells—Milky Way and Shattering Light: Sky Drill—to pass on to Wendy, should they ever meet.[9]

Synopsis

Tower of Heaven arc

Note: Events take place in the Tower of Heaven arc in the manga, but Battle of Fairy Tail arc in the anime.

Grandeeney and Igneel

Grandeeney meets Igneel

Grandeeney, in the form of a Magic orb of light, ventures into a volcanic region where the Fire Dragon, Igneel, is hiding. She teases Igneel over his foster son Natsu Dragneel and their shared habit of taking things in excess, but notes that Natsu may end up dying if he takes that habit too far. She also hopes that Natsu will one day meet Wendy and establish a more friendly relationship with her than the one he has with Metalicana's foster son, Gajeel Redfox. Her statements only irritate Igneel, who angrily tells her to leave and reminds her not to interfere with the humans, which she takes note of. She prepares to say something about Zeref before leaving, but decides to leave the subject for another time, and instead reminds Igneel of the Dragon King Feast she hopes he will attend.[2][10]

Tartaros arc

Grandeeney comes to the aid of the entire kingdom of Fiore when the Tartaros guild attempts to remove all Magic Power from the world with the Face pulse bomb. With the Mages failing to stop the devices from firing, Grandeeney soars in from the skies, using her large body to plow straight through the giant structures and destroy them as the Mages below smile on in relief.[11] Grandeeney, along with the other Dragons that emerged from their respective Dragon Slayers, takes part in annihilating the Face threat throughout the continent.[12]

Grandeeney later lands in front of the Mages of Fairy Tail with Metalicana, Skiadrum and Weisslogia, and commends them for helping Igneel drive away Acnologia; she also praises Wendy for destroying a Face bomb. After the other Slayers reunite with their parents, the Dragons reveal that they are dead, which Grandeeney explains that it is due to Acnologia using his Dragon Slayer Magic to reap their souls some years ago, which left them half-dead. She adds that in addition to stopping the Dragonification and defeating Acnologia, they hid inside their bodies to prolong their shortened lives, as well as added by Skiadrum that they cannot return once having left.[13] After this, Grandeeney reveals that they have more to say but no time left to say it; after offering words of encouragement to Wendy, the Dragons fly into the sky and promise to watch over and protect humanity per the Magna Carta forged between their two races four hundred years ago. Before she disappears, Grandeeney tells Wendy that she loves her.[14]

Magic and Abilities

Sky Dragon Slayer Magic (天の滅竜魔法 Ten no Metsuryū Mahō): Grandeeney, though never seen using her Magic, taught Wendy how to use the particular Magic that she, herself, specializes in.[8]

Grandeeney's light form

Grandeeney's light form

Light Form: Grandeeney can create an orb of light, which she uses to communicate long distances, usually with other Dragons.[2]

Telepathy (念話, テレパシー, Terepashī): Grandeeney, at an undisclosed point in time, used this technique to talk to Porlyusica,[15] and later demonstrated it once more when she told the pilots of the Christina airship to move their ship to the side.[16]

Flight: Being a Dragon, Grandeeney possesses the ability to fly through the air using her wings.[17]

Immense Speed: Grandeeney can travel at immense speeds; appearing as a speck at distances measuring in the kilometers, within mere seconds Grandeeney appeared before and beyond the Christina, leaving the Mages befuddled as to what she was.[17]

Immense Strength: Grandeeney can destroy numerous Face bombs with ease by ramming into them with her body.[17] This strength displayed, however, is nowhere near comparable to how strong Grandeeney was before her soul was taken, as after such a thing was performed, she lost most of her power.[5]

Immense Durability: After ramming into myriad Face bombs, Grandeeney emerged from each of the magical lithic structures without so much as a scratch.[18]

Quotes

  • (To Igneel) "All that is left for us is to believe in the human's own power ... and in Zeref... I look forward at the day we meet at the Dragon King's feast."[19]
