Chapter 73 (flashback)
Episode 32 (flashback)
Karen Lilica (カレン・リリカ Karen Ririka) was a Mage who belonged to the Blue Pegasus Guild, as well as being a famed Celestial Spirit Mage and former owner of Aries and Loke. She was killed by Angel of the Oración Seis.
Karen had brown eyes and green hair that was usually put back by a blue hat with white-colored Blue Pegasus's symbol and like most of the female characters, she also had large breasts.
Karen's member stamp was located on the lower left part of her abdomen, colored blue. She wore a long fur-trimmed red coat with a light pink furry collar and handcuffs on top of a cream and black bikini top. She also wore a knee-length dark purple skirt with light brown socks and red high-heeled shoes.
Karen was a sadistic and cruel Celestial Spirit Mage who treated her spirits as tools, using them as shields and as a means to entertain her many boyfriends. She demonstrated very little care for her own Spirits and thought of them as nothing more than tools with no mind of their own. She often abused and punished her Spirits if they misbehaved. She was also not above torturing them, as she had once planned to trap Aries in the human world when Master Bob scolded her for her actions. Also, due to her famed beauty, Karen had made it a hobby to flirt with a group of men and bring them back to her guild, much to her guild mates' displeasure. Karen was also quite confident in her Magic Power as she thought that she could keep Aries in the human world for seven days and believed that she could summon more than one spirit at a time, a feat that resulted in her death.
Karen was a beautiful member of Blue Pegasus who, due to her famed beauty, had many lovers, one of which was Hibiki Lates. Karen was also a Celestial Spirit Mage. However, she was very conceited to her Celestial Spirits, thinking of them more as tools and slaves than living beings. Her guild master, Bob, warned her that she would suffer if she continued abusing her spirits. However, these warnings fell on deaf ears as Karen believed that one of her spirits, Aries, had told on her. Karen wanted to punish Aries by forcing her to remain in the human world for seven days, which would have killed her, but Leo suddenly switched places with her and demanded that Karen to terminate the contracts she had with both spirits due to her abuse and stated that no other spirit was willing to work with her. Karen, however, refused and tried to close his gate, but Leo was much more strong-willed and powerful than she thought. Moreover, Leo being in the human world prevented Karen from summoning any other Celestial Spirits. Leo waited at some nearby ruins to see if Karen would give into his demands.
After ten days, Karen tried to talk the weakened Leo into returning, but he stubbornly refused as did she to his demands. Thirty days afterwards, Karen pleaded with him, but Leo saw through her lies, which prompted her to stomp on him. She proclaimed that once he was gone, she would be free to summon Aries and treat her ten times worse. Three months then passed, and Leo was feeling more used to the Human World. However, during this time, Karen has already died during a mission because she tried summoning a second Celestial Spirit for battle, albeit unsuccessfully, making it able for Oración Seis member and fellow Celestial Spirit Mage, Angel, to easily kill her and take away Aries's key.
A vision of Karen appears to Loke when he was forgiven by the Celestial Spirit King for indirectly causing her death. The image smiled to Loke before vanishing, indicating that following her death, she had finally learned the lesson Loke was trying to teach her.
Magic and AbilitiesEdit
Celestial Spirit Magic (星霊魔法 Seirei Mahō): Karen employed Celestial Spirit Magic, a Magic that allowed her to summon Magical beings called Celestial Spirits from the Celestial Spirit World through the use of special keys. She was a rather popular and powerful Celestial Spirit Mage as suggested by Lucy. However, her Magic Power was not enough to let her summon more than one Celestial Spirit at a time, a feat that she tried which ultimately led to her death.
As a Celestial Spirit Mage, Karen's main equipment was her Celestial Spirit Gate Keys.
- Gate of the Lion Key: Summons the Lion, Leo. (former)
- Gate of the Ram Key: Summons the Ram, Aries. (former)
Main article: Hibiki Lates
Not much is know about Karen's relationship with Hibiki, but at one point, Hibiki was her lover. However, their relationship ended when, during a mission, she was killed by Angel of the Oración Seis. Hibiki apparently never got over her death, but he doesn't let it interfere with his work.
Main article: Loke
As a Celestial Spirit Mage, Karen once formed a contract with Leo, one of the Twelve Ecliptic Zodiac Spirits. As the master of her Spirits, Karen believed herself to be superior to them and would sadistically deliver punishment if she believed that they were going against her, an attitude that she extended to Leo.
Though Leo was able to deal with Karen's outbursts and brutal punishments, he eventually grew fed up with her attitude after she punished his fellow Celestial Spirit Aries. Therefore, not only did he decide to take the punishment for Aries during one incident, but he also requested that Karen terminate her contract with the both of them. Karen was already furious at the fact that Leo was defying her in such a way but was unable to make him return to the Celestial Spirit World, frustrating her further; nonetheless, she was confident that he would succumb to the torture of staying in the Human World for an extended amount of time, until she realized that his voluntary presence would prevent her from summoning other Celestial Spirits.
Karen remained confident that Leo would return eventually and refused to cancel her contracts with her Spirits, underestimating Leo's will. After more than a month, Karen became very frustrated and pleaded for Leo to return so that she can take Jobs again, showing a desperate side to the Spirit; however, she brutally attacked him afterwards when he saw through her lies, threatening to treat Aries worse then ever once she can summon other Spirits again. Karen's desperation eventually grew to the point where she took a Job regardless of her disadvantages, all so she could pay her rents, an action that ultimately cost her her life in a confrontation with fellow Celestial Spirit Mage and Oración Seis member, Angel.
Despite her untimely death, three years later, Loke would later see a vision of Karen when he was forgiven by the Celestial Spirit King for indirectly causing her death. The image smiled to Loke before vanishing, indicating that following her death, she had finally learned the lesson Loke was trying to teach her; to love and respect her Celestial Spirits.
Main article: Aries
Sometime in the past, Karen also made a contract with the Celestial Spirit, Aries, also one of the Twelve Ecliptic Zodiac Spirits. Karen was a sadistic master to her Spirits and Aries in particular received brutal treatment at her hands, ranging from being used to entertain men to being used as a shield to block attacks aimed at Karen. As the legal owner of the spirits she possessed, Karen viewed herself as superior to her Spirits and thought of them as lower life forms. Despite even her guild master Bob telling her that she would suffer if she continued on her current path, Karen's attitude did not change.
To the contrary, Karen immediately delivered physical abuse upon Aries soon after being scolded by Bob, believing that the Spirit complained to him, despite her pleas that she did not. Showing that she had not taken Bob's words to heart and determined to punish Aries, Karen planned to make her spend seven days in the human world, which was normally believed to be fatal to them. With Leo subsequently staying in the human world to force Karen to release the contracts with him and Aries, Karen grew desperate and angry at this deception but never regretted her decision, even saying that once Leo went back to the Celestial Spirit World, she would bring Aries back and abuse her even worse.
This behavior inflicted upon Aries by Karen stayed with the Celestial Spirit for many years, despite Karen's death. While Aries wound up in the hands of Karen's killer, Angel of the Oración Seis, Leo ended up with Lucy Heartfilia from Fairy Tail, something Aries expressed happiness about as he could be happy and escaped from having a fate like her own. It was not till many years after Karen's death that the psychological wounds from the harsh treatment that she inflicted upon Aries would be healed as the Ram Spirit eventually found a new owner in Lucy, reuniting her with Loke and allowing her to smile genuinely over her new home.
- (To Bob) "Wha? They're my spirits, I should be able to do whatever I want with them."
- (To Aries) "Oh, you underestimate me. Besides, you ought worry about yourself first. A spirit who remains for seven days straight. I wonder how she'll look afterwards?"
