Jude Heartfilia

Jude's old look

Jude was a relatively tall, middle aged man with black eyes and sleek blonde hair, which was gelled back. He also had a finely cut golden colored mustache; along with a firm rectangular jaw. He used to keep his hair trimmed, and wore expensive suits.[1]

After loosing all his money, his appearance drastically changed. His hair grew past his shoulders, wavy and un-waxed. His mustache became slightly longer and his beard grew long, unkempt and messy. His clothing became ragged and worn out.[2]

Jude used to be a cold-hearted man. He neglected his daughter and put all his time and effort into his company, which resulted in Lucy running away from home.[3] According to Lucy, her dad never cared for her. However his attitude towards his daughter seemed to change once he lost his fortune, and he appeared to become more kind to his daughter.[4] On an unrelated note, Jude's sense for money was extremely poor, as he believed he needed 100,000 Jewel to get from Magnolia Town to Acalypha when it was possible to get there on foot.[5]


Lucy's name

Jude and Layla decide Lucy's name

Years ago, Jude met Layla Heartfilia at the Love & Lucky Merchant's Guild. The letter "K" had fallen off of the sign, which had left an impression on the two parents-to-be, deciding that if they had a daughter, her name would be Lucy. Once Lucy was born, Jude and Layla left the guild and he established his own business, The Heartfilia Konzern.[6]

When Lucy was in her younger years Layla died, and Jude became cold and neglectful towards Lucy, so much that Lucy had to run away.[7] A year after Lucy ran away he sent Phantom Lord a job requesting that they find Lucy and bring her home to be married, which sparked the war between the Fairy Tail Guild and the Phantom Lord Guild.[8]

Months before Jude died, after the Archaeological Society discovered the Clock hand, Jude somehow found it in his possession.

An archaeologist named Jean-Luc Neville placed the Clock's hand in Jude's possession. Jean-Luc had wrapped the hand with a Magic Cloth, because the Clock hands high level of Magic would allow it to be tracked easily. Jude promised Jean-Luc that he would seal away the Clock hand in another place before bidding him farewell.[9]

After the defeat of the Phantom Lord Guild, he is visited by Lucy. He then tells Lucy that he wants her to marry Duke Sawarr Junelle, to merge the Heartfilia's wealth with that of the Junelles, although Lucy only met Sawarr as a child. But Lucy rejects his command and states that she can make her own decisions, and live her own life, and she will not forgive him if he attacked Fairy Tail again. She then rips off her fancy clothes to prove that she has cut all ties with him. When Lucy runs off with her friends, Jude looks out the window at his smiling daughter sadly.[10]

Jude then realizes that Lucy came because she was worried for him. He thanks her but then she walks away, stating that she still hasn't forgiven him. He stops her by saying that that guild was where he first met her mother. He reveals that the name "Lucy" came from the guild's name, Love & Lucky, from which at that time, the letter "k" from "Lucky" was missing, so it looked like it was "Lucy". After, the rest of Team Natsu finds Lucy and takes her with them, Jude is left alone, thinking to Layla that he was a fool all this time.[15]

X791 arcEdit

Jude is revealed to have died one month prior to Lucy's return, by a woman at the Love & Lucky guild.[16] Later, it is also revealed that Jude sent birthday presents to Lucy every year, even after she disappeared and also wrote letters, hoping that she'd read them one day. He expressed his desire to see her again and called her his pride, finishing off the last letter by telling her that he had always loved her.[17]



  • (To Lucy Heartfilia) "You are mine and Layla's pride. All I want is that you live strong down whatever path you believe in. I hope I can see you again soon. Lucy... I've always... loved you."[26]
