Layla Heartfilia (レイラ・ハートフィリア Reira Hātofiria) was Lucy Heartfilia's mother, and the wife of Jude Heartfilia. She was also a Celestial Spirit Mage.


Layla was a beautiful young woman. She had soft brown eyes along with long blonde hair, which she usually wore in a bun along with a lacy baby pink band with ruffles on its edges which rests on her hair with her flicks and strands of hair framing her face. Like her daughter, Layla had a voluptuous figure. She and her daughter have similar appearances, to the point that Lucy is almost the spitting image of her mother.[1]


Layla was a kind, caring, and compassionate woman who loved her daughter and husband immensely.[1] She treated her Celestial Spirits kindly[2], and was the one who taught Lucy that Spirits were not tools, but rather living creatures and friends, believing that they were just like everyone else and treating them like equals.[citation needed]

Layla Heartfilia was a Celestial Spirit Mage who worked in the merchant's guild, "Love & Lucky" where she met and fell in love with Jude Heartfilia. The two eventually decided to become independent when Layla became pregnant with Lucy. They chose her name when they noticed that the sign of the guild had the letter K missing so instead, it was read as 'Love & Lucy'; this made an impression on them so they decided to name their child "Lucy" if their child was a girl.[3]

Layla and Capricorn

Over the years, the Heartfilia Konzern became bigger and more powerful. Layla lived in an estate together with her daughter and staff.[1] At the year X764, Layla retired all of her Spirits due to her fading health. Each of her spirits were distributed to three different owners, each to be entrusted with a key until Layla's child was ready to inherit the spirits. However before they left, she made a final contract with Capricorn, where he committed to protect her family for all of eternity.[4] At the year X777 when she was 29 years old, Layla passed away.[5]

Layla once told her daughter something about the "The One Magic", as Lucy remembers this when Hades explains his goals.[6]
