"I can't be found out... I don't want to make Mira-nee and the others sad again. I have to hold it in! I will live out my life in Edolas..."
|Guild Mark Location||
Take Over Siblings
|Base of Operations|
Lisanna is shown as a young petite girl with short, white hair and blue eyes. As a child, Lisanna wore a simple, pink dress paired with dark red shoes. Before being sent to Edolas, her hair was quite longer, and she wore a short, dark red dress with a white collar and bow. Up on her arms above her elbows, she wore gold rings with a pale pink fabric flowing down from it. She wore tall, black socks along with brown shoes. In Edolas, Lisanna wore a tank top with crossed straps with a longer skirt. A sash with the Fairy Tail mark was tied around her waist and she wore sandals. Her hair was also worn shorter than it was in Earth Land. After Lisanna arrives back in Earth Land, she wears a light-blue striped shirt, with green short-shorts and sneakers. On Tenrou Island, Lisanna wears light green shirt and blue pantie-shorts with a pair of purple slippers. After the 7 year time skip and during the Grand Magic Games Arc, Lisanna is seen wearing pink spaghetti shirt with a ribbon in the middle and long jeans with flower patterns on it.
Her member stamp was originally red and was located on her left arm just below the shoulder, however, when she was being sucked into the Anima, her member stamp disappeared. In Edolas, she changed her stamp to white and is now located on her left thigh.
When Lisanna was younger, she was very kind like Elfman was as a child. She wanted to help Natsu Dragneel raise an unknown egg to see what comes out of it, being a little more knowledgeable than Natsu. After seeing a softer side of the usually flamboyant Natsu, she stated that he was a lot like her sister and joked that perhaps later she should become his bride/wife which predictably freaked him out. Whilst raising the egg with him, he learned it was "impossible" to win in an argument with her. Lisanna apparently likes animals (especially cats) but she hates studying. Because of her personality, she can easily adjust and be accepted by anyone.
Sometime during her younger years, Lisanna’s parents died. So she, along with her siblings, joined the Fairy Tail Guild. She was around eleven years old during that time. In the year X782, she almost lost her life while trying to revert Elfman after his full-body Take Over went out of control. When Elfman tried to Take Over the Beast, he lost control of himself in the new state, and Lisanna confronted him, trying to calm him down. However, Elfman's Beast Soul form hit her and made her fly several meters away, but then, Elfman reverted to himself. Lisanna is shown in her last moments holding her sister's hand, though she actually didn't die. Mirajane was tending her wound when an Anima opened and took her into Edolas. When she regained conscious, she found herself to a different Fairy Tail Guild. Everyone at the guild believed that she was the Lisanna they knew, and welcomed her back with a smile. From their reaction, she deduced that their Lisanna had passed away. She found herself unable to say anything, and pretended to be their Lisanna.
Upon seeing Lucy Ashley bullying who she thought was Natsu Dragion and Jet and Droy scolding Elfman, she arrives to tell them to stop. She is surprised by Natsu’s behavior towards her when he and Happy tearfully cry out her name and attempt to hug her before getting kicked by Lucy Ashley. When Natsu begins to explain that he came from Earth Land to save their companions, Lisanna is seen hiding behind the bar and eventually running outside. Realizing that he’s the Natsu that she knows, Lisanna begins to cry. Not wanting to hurt Edolas’ Mirajane and Elfman, she makes the difficult decision and decides to stay in Edolas herself.
During the battle against the Royal Army, she is seen running out along with all the guild members and fights with a staff. She cheers up Natsu Dragion during the battle. However, when the Anima begins to take the living beings with Magic inside away, she begins to glow. Lisanna tries to explain, but Mirajane and Elfman of Edolas reveal that they already knew. Elfman said that they already noticed, but just couldn't say it, and apologize. Mirajane then says that she's like their Lisanna, someone who's really kind, and thus she can't let her real siblings cry anymore. As Lisanna tearfully screams out their names, Mirajane asks her to give them their regards.
Back on Earth Land, Pantherlily finds and catches Lisanna for being a suspicious character. When everyone sees her, the whole group, especially Natsu, is surprised by her appearance. She asks Pantherlily if he is an Exceed, to which he replies by stating his name, and Gajeel angrily asks her if she is picking a fight with his cat. She then notices Natsu, and immediately runs up to him, her hug ramming him down to the ground, in blushes and tears similar as to what he tried to do when he saw her.
She then hugs Happy, and is glad to see Gray and Erza as well. She notices Lucy and Wendy too, and deduces they must be the Earth Land versions of their counterparts back in Edolas. Gray then asks if she's Lisanna of Earth Land, to which she replies affirmatively. Everyone is further shocked, and Happy and Natsu happily try to hug her, but Erza stops them, stating that Lisanna died two years ago. Lisanna then explains the truth to everyone about how Anima absorbed her when Mirajane tried to heal her. Natsu asks why she didn't tell the truth when they first met, to which Lisanna says that she couldn't bear the weight of hurting her adopted siblings.
At Kardia Cathedral, Mirajane and Elfman are visiting Lisanna’s grave, two years since her apparent death. Suddenly, they are surprised to hear a voice they once knew call out to them. Turning around, their eyes widen at the sight of Lisanna running. All of them cry and hug each other for the first time in two years.
Tenrou Island arc
After the Edolas Incident, Lisanna returns to the guild and mentions numerous changes such as Mirajane’s personality. While everyone is talking about Edolas, she joins in and mentions how Natsu's counterpart is more sensitive, cries a lot from being picked on, and is really cute. This makes everyone laugh to the point that they would have liked to see a Natsu who was the exact opposite of theirs. After the regular guild parties and fights, she is seen sleeping with her siblings.
A few days later, Lisanna and Wendy watch as the guild members take up numerous jobs. During that time, she and Wendy learn that Carla now has better control of her visions, she asks her if she can see who she will marry in the future whereupon Carla answers that she can't see too far into the future yet. A day later, she watches the ceremony of the S-Class Mage Promotion Trial and is seen calling good luck to Elfman when he's chosen.
Moments after the ceremony, she is seen with Team Natsu and the others, commenting on how Natsu wants to become an S-Class Mage to find Igneel. Lisanna then decides to become Juvia's partner, due to the good relationship she has with Edolas Juvia. This makes Elfman angry as he thought she would be his. She tells him that Evergreen has been watching him for a while and proposes that they team up.
As the participants head towards the island, Lisanna is among the group barely standing the heat. Shortly after, the master arrives to explain the rules of the first trial. When the first trial starts, she and Juvia are delayed due to Freed’s rune on the boat, preventing everyone from leaving for five minutes. As soon as the runes are released, she transforms into a fish and swims with Juvia to the island. Lisanna and Juvia choose the ‘D’ route as they get to the island and encounter Erza as their opponent. However, despite a tedious fight, Erza overcomes both of them, eliminating her and Juvia from the trial.
Lisanna and Juvia then meet up with Mirajane and Erza at a tent and hear of Mirajane's defeat at the hands of Elfman and Evergreen when they said they were getting married. While Mirajane thinks there is nothing going on between them, Lisanna still thinks that they go well together. When everyone remembers Freed and Bickslow heading back to the guild, they wonder about Mest and Wendy. Lisanna says that she had never met Mest in Edolas, so she doesn't know anything about him and asks if he joined in the last two years. However, nobody seems to notice or remember anything about him joining. She and Mirajane later presumably see the warning signal that Erza launches to issue the warning of enemies. Grimoire Heart members then arrive, and Lisanna and Mirajane dispatch all of them in their immediate vicinity. Azuma then confronts the pair, and though Mirajane tells her to get back, Lisanna says she will fight.
Azuma begins using his Great Tree Arc Magic to attack Mirajane and Lisanna. Lisanna is amazed at Azuma's incredible Magic Power, but says that she isn't going to hold back and uses Animal Soul: Wings and tries to attack Azuma with the claws. Azuma grabs it effortlessly and Lisanna transforms into a giant penguin and tries to smash Azuma, but he evades it. Mirajane is surprised that her sister can change Take Overs instantly and asks herself since when she's been able to perform such a high level technique. Lisanna transforms by using Animal Soul: Rabbit and Azuma uses Bleve. From the smoke, Lisanna takes flight as a giant bird, and transforms into a cat in the sky. She falls to the ground and tries attacking Azuma with continuous scratches, which he evades and then counters with an explosion.
Immediately, the pair gets wounded by an explosion. Lisanna tells her sister to change to her Satan Form. Azuma, recognizing Mirajane as the Demon Mirajane from this, requests a formal battle with her. Lisanna prepares to stay and fight but Mirajane tells her to get back. Because Mirajane doesn't properly respond to Azuma, Azuma traps Lisanna in a set of roots and places a 180-Second Time Bomb on the roots, saying that the only way for Lisanna to get out is if he is defeated. Mirajane then changes to her Demon Form and begins battling Azuma.
However, she constantly checks back on the timer despite Lisanna telling her not to, thereby losing focus in the battle. After the timer hits 19, the heavily wounded Mirajane stops engaging Azuma and runs back to Lisanna, hugging her and telling her she won't let her die. The explosion then occurs, and after that, Lisanna finds Mirajane on top of her, unresponsive, and starts crying out her name. She is then seen with Levy back at the camp as they tend to Mirajane and Gajeel.
As Elfman comes with Evergreen, Lisanna says that it’s all her fault, but Levy tells her that they must combine their strength to defeat the enemy. Lisanna is seen when Pantherlily arrives, telling Levy and her that Natsu and the others are on their way. Soon after, Rustyrose shows up and challenges her along with Pantherlily and Levy to battle. She is later seen when she notices Bluenote's Magic. When Freed and Bickslow arrive, she is both shocked and happy to see them and marvels at the true power of the Thunder God Tribe.
Lisanna, along with Pantherlily and Levy, warn Freed and Bickslow to be careful when Rustyrose attacks them with his spell, Ghost of the Britear. She later collapses when Azuma uproots the tree on Tenrou Island that protects and gives power to Fairy Tail members. After Erza defeats Azuma, the battle between Freed, Bickslow and Rustyrose resumes. Cornered, Rustyrose uses the same attack he used to defeat Evergreen and Elfman, the Tower of Dingir, and Lisanna, Levy and Pantherlily get caught in the attack too. However, Elfman frees them after he is possessed by Bickslow, hitting an unprepared Rustyrose from behind. Lisanna uses her Magic to transform her arms into wings and teams up with Freed, giving him, with her legs, a boost and the strength to quickly fly towards Rustyrose and give him the finishing blow, putting an end to the battle.
After the battle with Rustyrose, Natsu and the others arrive at the guild's camp when Lucy is shock to see many Fairy Tail members were injured. When Wendy decides to use her healing Magic, Lisanna stops her and says she must not trouble herself. Natsu is shocked and relieved to see Lisanna safe and he asks Lisanna what had happened. Lisanna tells Natsu that the camp was attack by Rustyrose and luckily Freed and Bickslow fought for them. Lisanna also says that they're all out of Magic Power and she is sad because Mirajane and the others are injured. As Lisanna is about to cry, Happy comments that a cheerful character like her must always smile, to which Lisanna agrees. In order to end the war between Fairy Tail and Grimoire Heart, Natsu decides to go fight Hades, asking Lucy and Happy to accompany him. Although reluctant at first, Lucy agrees to his idea and the three are joined by Wendy, Carla and Pantherlily. Before leaving, Lisanna stops Lucy and tells her to stay close to Natsu, saying that he is stronger when he is surrounded by the people that he trusts.
Note: The following events occur only in the anime and do not constitute canon material.
After Grimoire Heart is defeated, Lisanna, with the rest of Fairy Tail, scares off the Grimoire Heart members who were about to attack Happy and Carla. After they flee, the guild celebrates their victory and returns to camp. At camp, she plays with Natsu's hair who has passed out from the side effect of eating lightning. Later on, Lisanna is being playfully teased by Laxus Dreyar, stretching her cheeks, wondering if she was really Lisanna.
Everything is interrupted when the "Black Dragon of the Apocalypse", Acnologia lands on the island and starts its rampage. Lisanna flees with the guild after Makarov defends the guild from the Dragon by himself. Lisanna shortly returns with the guild to help Makarov though. Eventually, the Dragon flies into the air, tired of the battle, and prepares a final attack to destroy the island. All the Fairy Tail members on the island hold hands in an attempt to negate the attack by using defensive Magic. It fails as Acnologia fires its Dragon Breath, completely destroying Tenrou Island.
Lisanna, along with the others, is found alive and returns to the Fairy Tail Guild after being found by Bisca, Alzack, Jet, Droy, Max, Warren and the Trimens from Blue Pegasus. She watches as Mavis Vermilion reveals that she was the one who saved them and then disappears. She, along with the other returning members, is welcomed back by Romeo. When the guild celebrates the return of their missing members, Lisanna asks Alzack and Bisca if they have any children. They reveal that they have one daughter named Asuka.

Grand Magic Games arc
Whilst in the guild one morning, Lisanna overhears an argument between Macao and Romeo, the latter wanting the guild to participate in the Grand Magic Games now that the Team Tenrou has returned. As the guild members begin to get pumped at the idea of competing, Lisanna smiles alongside Mirajane as they watch Elfman scream him excitement. The guild later on decides to join the Grand Magic Games. Lisanna, together with her team mates, Mirajane, Elfman, and Cana, hikes out to the mountains to train themselves and enhance their power. After training, Lisanna and Elfman arrive at Crocus, where the Grand Magic Games are being held. Lisanna, upon Erza's request, goes out with Happy to find the missing Wendy Marvell and Carla. As they search, they find Wendy's purse on the ground, but Wendy herself is nowhere to be seen.
Lisanna and Happy find Wendy and Carla besides a bush and take her to a hospital where she is taken care of. Lisanna then goes with the other Fairy Tail members to watch and cheer for the Fairy Tail team representing them in the competition. Later, Lisanna and the other Fairy Tail members are surprised to see Mavis at the Grand Magic Games. When Fairy Tail's second team, Team Fairy Tail B, enters Fairy Tail cheers again, though Mavis notices the man disguised as Mystogan is Jellal Fernandes, but accepts Makarov's decision to let him participate.
During the first event of the Games, Hidden, which Gray takes part in, Lisanna stares on in awe when Rufus of Team Sabertooth suddenly reveals himself to every one of his opponents. When the Mage then uses Memory-Make to hit all his opponents, Lisanna is amazed. The event then ends with both of Fairy Tail's teams in the bottom of the ranking.
During Lucy's fight against Flare Corona, she, alongside her guildmates, cheers for Lucy, and are unaware that Flare has Asuka as hostage to make Lucy lose. Everyone is surprised when Natsu unveils Flare's attempt, but even with the exposure of it, Lucy still loses. After Lucy's loss, Lisanna and the other Fairy Tail member watch Jellal fight with Jura Neekis. When Jellal loses to Jura, Lisanna and the other Fairy Tail members are in shock over it.
Later, Lisanna, along with the rest of the Fairy Tail Guild, heads to a local bar to celebrate Fairy Tail's terrible loss. The next day, Lisanna is left dumbfounded as she watches Natsu and Gajeel participate in Chariot, as both Dragon Slayers suffer from severe motion sickness, leaving them to lag behind in the last three places alongside Sting of Sabertooth. During the second day's second match, when Elfman is called to battle Bacchus, Lisanna is shocked and tells Macao and Wakaba, who openly expressed their disappointment, not to be mean. When Bacchus makes a perverted comment about her and Mirajane to Elfman, she is visibly disgusted.
As the battle commences, she is visibly worried about Elfman, as he continues to take lots of damage, but is encouraged by Evergreen. During Elfman's last ditch strategy against his opponents attack, she is close to tears, and she is extremely relieved when her brother wins. She is later seen alongside her brother in the clinic, and walks with the rest of Team Fairy Tail A and Carla back to the arena, where she realizes her older sister started her battle. She is embarrassed at Jenny Realight's wager and celebrates with the rest of Fairy Tail when her elder sister wins.
On the third day of the Games, Lisanna watches alongside the rest of the guild as the Pandemonium event begins, and cheers for Erza and Cana, Fairy Tail's two competitors. When Erza manages to dominate the event by herself, solely taking out every opponent, Lisanna screams and cheers with the crowd, happy at their victory. This only continues when Cana later destroys the Magic Power Finder in the secondary event, consequently landing Fairy Tail the two top spots for the event section of the day. After that, Lisanna team up with The Raijinshuu, spying on the members of Raven Tail to make sure they don't get up to anything during the battles. After the weeding out of Ivan's illusion, involving a depiction of him defeating Laxus single-handedly, Lisanna is shocked to see that all of the Team Raven Tail members were defeated by Laxus alone.After Laxus' triumph, the Grand Magic Games resume with Wendy fighting Team Lamia Scale's Sky God Slayer, Chelia Blendy. At some point during the battle, when Wendy avoids Chelia's Heavenly Gathering of Clouds, Lisanna is seen amazed and startled with Wendy's ingenious strategy; she had healed her opponent's physical strength as a result, the attack had overshot, missing Wendy. At the end of the day, Lisanna and her fellow guildmates party at the local bar. While there, she sighs in disbelief at how Elfman's injuries still haven't recovered, and later plays "Barrel Surfing" with Natsu and Happy.
That evening, Lisanna and the others in the guild head to Ryuzetsu Land, a popular resort in Crocus. Upon arriving, Lisanna asks Erza if her injuries have healed, which is met by Mirajane telling her it's Erza they're talking about. After exploring the area, Lisanna states that they should've brought Elfman along, unaware that he arrived with Evergreen before she did. Afterwards, Lisanna watches in surprise as Jenny Realight steals Mirajane's bikini top as revenge for being humiliated in their match the previous day. However, the three later sit down at a table and have a normal conversation. A while later, Gray and Lyon fight and freeze the pool, with Natsu deciding to get rid of the ice by using his own Magic. Lisanna is sent flying when Natsu employs more power than necessary and ends up in the rubble next to an unconscious Mirajane.
Later, the tag battle between Team Quatro Puppy and Team Blue Pegasus involving Bacchus and Rocker versus Ichiya and the mysterious Rabbit starts. Lisanna is seen in the audience bewildered to see that the identity of the Rabbit is the exceed, Nichiya.
As Natsu and Gajeel from the newly formed team enter the arena to battle Sabertooth's Sting and Rogue, Lisanna, alongside her Guildmates, watches the match confident of their win. The fierce battle between the Dragon Slayers takes place with both sides intensely fighting for the win. When Sting spells his Holy Nova, Lisanna gets shocked by the explosion caused in the impact. Lisanna and Mirajane anxiously watch as Sting wants to battle Natsu and Gajeel alone.
Soon both Natsu and Gajeel seemingly fall to Sting and Rogue, but miraculously stand up. Lisanna watches in amazement as Natsu takes on the Twin Dragons alone, while waiting to see who will emerge the victor. At the end of the match, Lisanna joyfully witnesses Natsu defeat Sting and Rogue alone, leaving Fairy Tail in the ranking's first place at the end of the fourth day.
When the final day of the games gets under way, Team Fairy Tail enters the arena while Lisanna stands in the crowd with the rest of Fairy Tail, cheering for the team representing their guild. However, a confused Lisanna soon starts wondering why Team Fairy Tail has not moved at all, since the beginning of the event. After the team begins battling under Mavis' strategy, Lisanna refers to it as the Fairy Star Strategy. While watching Gray battle Rufus Lore of Team Sabertooth, Lisanna notes how the latter can seemingly make any Magic he likes with his power. After Gray manages to defeat Rufus, Lisanna, along with the other guild members, cheers on the Ice Mage for his victory. Later, Lisanna wonders if Natsu and the others are fine, to which Makarov replies that they can only trust them and wait. Then, Lisanna is shocked when Mavis' prediction is wrong and Erza begins fighting with Kagura instead of Minerva. However, Minerva does make an appearance, and seeing the three powerful Mages begin to face off in a three-way fight, Lisanna comments on the unpredictable nature of the battle.
Later on, Lisanna watches in anxiety as Erza battle Kagura alone, with the latter drawing her Archenemy and causing blood to spill. Soon after, Lisanna watches in awe with the rest of her guild mates as Kagura draws Archenemy to strike Erza. Despite Erza being okay and managing to fight back after the attack, Lisanna ends up observing another tense situation when, in another part of Crocus, Rogue confronts Gajeel and begins to beat the Iron Dragon Slayer around after being possessed by his own shadow. Soon after, she also witnesses Orga of Sabertooth being defeated in a single blow by Jura of the Ten Wizard Saints, something which greatly shocks her.
Despite his strength, Jura ends up falling in his battle against Laxus, as do all of the other opponents who come up against Fairy Tail. Eventually, only Sting remains, and, knowing this, the Sabertooth Mage calls all of Team Fairy Tail to his location. Upon their arrival, Sting threatens to take them all out, and Lisanna watches in tension as he moves to attack them. However, Sting, seeing Fairy Tail's determination, ends up surrendering, allowing Fairy Tail to win the Grand Magic Games. Hearing of their victory, Lisanna happily hugs Levy, her eyes filled with tears.
Lisanna, along with the members of many other guilds, is summoned by the King, and is told of the impending invasion at the hands of the Dragons. When Evergreen states that they couldn't even defeat Acnologia at Tenrou Island, Lisanna remarks that Acnologia was a special case. Upon the King's request that the guilds join forces to stop the Dragons, Lisanna joins in on the raucous declaration of acceptance. As she stands in Crocus with the other members of her guild, a huge roar suddenly echoes throughout the town, and Lisanna watches in shock as a giant tremor hits the city, smashing a nearby building and sending debris flying. With the Dragons attacking Corcus, Atlas Flame lands in front of Lisanna and the rest of the Fairy Tail Mages. Atlas then releases a massive breath attack, scattering the Mages with ease.
Lisanna is shielded from the mighty Dragon's blast by Elfman, and when the dust resulting from Atlas Flame's Dragon's Roar subsides, both she, and her brother, are revealed to be relatively unharmed. Shortly thereafter, as Motherglare, the Dragon circling Crocus from above, sends a multitude of eggs raining down on the streets below, Lisanna looks up into the sky and wonders exactly what they are. After the demolition of the Eclipse Gates, the Dragons and Hatchlings go on to vanish from the current timeline, leading Lisanna and the rest of her Guild to celebrate in their victory.
A few days after the Dragons disappear, Lisanna, Mirajane, Wendy, Lucy and Yukino get ready for a large banquet at the Royal Palace; while her sister tries to rid Yukino of her embarrassment regarding her appearance in her dress, Lisanna, having trouble tying her corset, pleads for Mirajane to come and help her. A short while later, Lisanna and the other girls, fully dressed in elegant gowns, arrive at the Royal Palace, with Lisanna in particular marveling at the inside of the illustrious dining hall. She then sits next to her brother and glares at him as he voraciously devours a large quantity of food. Later on during the banquet, when Sting and a very drunk Kagura fight over which guild Yukino should join, Fairy Tail joins the debate, asking Yukino to join their guild instead. During this, Lisanna dejectedly points out that she and Yukino are nearly identical in character.
After returning to Magnolia, Lisanna rides into town on a cheering Elfman's back, telling her brother to stop. As Natsu holds up their trophy, Lisanna jumps for joy with the other members of the guild.
Sun Village arc
Lisanna, along with all the other girls, takes a bath in the new bath house and marvels at its size and appearance. Washing her body, Lisanna also remarks that since they won the Grand Magic Games, the job requests have started pouring in, and then expresses her surprise at hearing Lucy state that Natsu and Gray went on a job together. She then, however, expresses her doubt at hearing that Erza is away on a job with Wendy, noticing that another scarlet-haired woman has been in the bathhouse with them the entire time. Lisanna then expresses her shock at hearing Lucy invite Flare to join Fairy Tail.
As Elfman stares down Warren Rocko for making googly eyes at Lisanna, Lisanna tells him to stop. Later, when the fatally injured Laxus, Yajima and Thunder God Tribe are brought back to the guild, Lisanna watches as Makarov lies to Freed about the lost lives of those caught in Nine Demon Gates member Tempesta's Magical Barrier Particles. Later, after Fairy Tail discusses the possibility of searching out former Magic Council members due to their status as Tartarus' targets, Lisanna listens to Makarov as he gives a speech declaring that Fairy Tail will eliminate their enemies.
Lisanna and Elfman head out to the home of ex-Council member Yuri, but arrive to find the man already dead. As Elfman examines the body and ponders how he was killed if he has no wounds, Lisanna goes to prepare a Lacrima so that they can contact the guild. Pulling the crystal from her bag, Lisanna is shocked when Yuri suddenly opens his eyes, jerks upright and points to the Lacrima, smashing it in her hands from across the room. Watching Yuri fall back to the ground lifeless once more, Lisanna and Elfman question what happened, only to be interrupted by Sayla of the Nine Demon Gates, who has been sitting watching them the entire time. The Tartarus woman stands and begins to move towards them, prompting Elfman to tell Lisanna to be careful; however, for some reason, he suddenly reaches out and grabs Lisanna by the neck, strangling her. Lisanna flails and tries to free herself from his tight grip, but Elfman seems incapable of moving his own body. Scared himself, Elfman yells for Sayla to stop whatever she is doing, though the woman refuses to cease her actions. As a result of Elfman's tight grip around her neck, Lisanna eventually loses consciousness.
Some time later, she is brought to Tartarus' headquarters. Stripped of her clothes, she is placed in a jail cell where she later awakens to find Natsu alongside her. With both of them having been stripped of their clothing, Lisanna expresses her deep embarrassment over her current state and is even more shocked upon hearing that Erza and Mirajane have been captured as well. Believing that Elfman has likely been captured as well, Lisanna grows gloomy over their state of affairs, noting Tartarus to be unlike anyone they've faced before. However, Natsu reassures her that everything will be alright, bringing a smile to her face until she tells him to stop looking at her. Despite her struggles, she is unable to break out of the Magic-sealing cuffs which have been placed on her and wonders what to do.
Lisanna tries to get Natsu's cuffs off of him with her legs, only to fail, claiming that an ordinary human cannot remove them. When Natsu turns to try and take off hers, she yells at him for turning around when she told him not to, much to her embarrassment. At this point, Silver arrives and throws Lisanna a blanket, which Lisanna thanks the older man for. She then looks at Natsu, who states that Silver smells just like Gray. Shortly after, Lisanna notices the heavy shaking of her surroundings and grows frightened. Though asked if she is alright, Lisanna does not respond, instead focusing her thoughts on her elder brother and sister. As the tremor continues, Lisanna notices something and tries to point it out, however, Natsu takes a look at Lisanna's almost-naked body, much to her annoyance. As he finally notices the sword outside of their cell, Lisanna notes that they can use it to break the chains on their cuffs.
Lisanna and Natsu free themselves using the heat sword, and rush to save Erza from her captivity. After this, the two await for Kyouka and ambush her when she walks into Erza's cell by catching her arms, with Lisanna activating her Animal Soul: Cat. Taking the Demon by surprise, the group hastily chain her up, with Lisanna demanding to know Mirajane and Elfman's locations. Stating she doesn't know who Elfman is, Kyouka does tell the group where they can find Mirajane, and Lisanna and Natsu decide to go and look for her, leaving Erza to deal with Kyouka. As they head towards the area specified, Lisanna and Natsu are spotted by some Tartarus troops, who move to engage them. Though preparing to fight, Lisanna is told to go on ahead.
Continuing her search, Lisanna eventually comes across Mirajane and happily hugs her out of worry. Asked why she is using Animal Soul, Lisanna reveals that she didn't have any clothes. Stating that she, Natsu, Erza and Elfman were captured, she explains that only Elfman is left but is soon corrected by Sayla, who states that he was not captured. Remembering her, Lisanna warns Mirajane that she can control people, who then tells her to stand back. Sayla reveals that though he blew up the building as he was ordered, nobody died and she was embarrassed as a result. Hearing this, Lisanna breathes a sign of relief.
Magic and Abilities
Take Over (接収, テイクオーバー, Teiku Ōbā): Like Elfman and Mirajane, Lisanna uses Take Over Magic. Her transformation is based on transforming her body into animal and hybrid-animal forms which is called Animal Soul (アニマルソウル Animaru Sōru). She can use her Take Over transformations in a variety of ways, and was seen augmenting her physical capabilities and parameters during combat through their use. Lisanna is able to chain five Take Overs instantly when she fights with Azuma. According to Mirajane, this is a high level Take Over technique.
- Animal Soul: Bird: Lisanna resembles a bird with green and pinkish feathers. She used this form to raise and warms an egg that Natsu found in a forest.
- Animal Soul: Rabbit: Lisanna transformed herself into a giant purple rabbit in order to build the hideout that was meant to hatch Natsu's egg. Was later used in Juvia and hers battle against Erza.
- Animal Soul: Fish: Lisanna takes on the form of a small fish that gives her the ability to swim and breathe underwater.
- Animal Soul: Cat: Lisanna partially takes on the form of a feline. In this state, she is mostly humanoid, with longer hair in the manga while in the anime her hair remains unaltered. Concentrated striped patterns appear around her forearms, as well as feline-like pads on the surface of her palms and sharp claws at her finger tips. She also sports feline ears, whiskers, a small feline nose, and a long tail, but otherwise retains her human features. In this state, her attire changes as well: Lisanna appears to be garbed in a tiger-skin, 2-piece bikini. While in this form, she uses fierce scratches from her claws to overwhelm meager opponents into submission.
- Animal Soul: Penguin: Lisanna resembles a form of a giant penguin. Utilizing the momentum gained from her excessive weight, she can smash her opponents or attack them.
- Animal Soul: Mermaid: Lisanna takes the form of a mermaid. She is mostly humanoid with a purple tail. This allows her to be able to breathe underwater.
Triple Unison Explosion: Lisanna uses her Animal Soul: Wings spell and fuses Levy's Solid Script: Storm in one wing with Cana's Explosion Cards in the other to create a tornado of fire and wind that is fired at the target.
Edolas Magic Staff (former): In Edolas, Lisanna used an unnamed Magic staff.
Magic Sword (former): In the anime, Lisanna's Edolas weapon was instead a purple and white sword with a scroll-like cloth swirling around it.
Main article: Mirajane Strauss
Mirajane is Lisanna's older sister. Mirajane is very protective of Lisanna, and cares for her deeply, to the point that she would take the full brunt of an explosion sent towards Lisanna by Azuma to protect her, shielding the girl with her own body. When Mirajane thought Lisanna had died, her entire personality shifted, and she became kind and motherly, forsaking her punkish and tomboyish attitude; something which shows how attached she was to her younger sibling.
Main article: Elfman Strauss
Lisanna is Elfman's young sister. He loves and deeply cares for her, mainly due the fact that he had to live 2 years without her.
When they were young, Elfman was shy and weak and Lisanna was quite cheerful, in contrast to Mirajane's arrogant behavior, which made Elfman and Lisanna to be often worried about the actions of their older sister. Due the fact that Elfman was the only of the siblings that couldn't perform a full Take Over, he used to feel depressed because of that and envy the sisters. Despite the differences, the siblings got along very well, going into missions together. However, during one of these missions, Elfman lost control of his full-body Take Over, knocking out Lisanna and making everyone think that she was dead. Elfman then started blaming himself for that, subsequently becoming a more tough and protective person.
After the events of the Edolas arc, Lisanna was revealed to be alive, which made Elfman extremely surprised and happy. With the personality change, Elfman started to care for Lisanna more than ever, and demonstrated it very well during his his fight against Bacchus, in which he fought to the last second in honor of Lisanna and Mirajane, surprisingly winning the battle.
Main article: Natsu Dragneel
Lisanna and Natsu are childhood friends, who have always been very close to each other. Their friendship started when Natsu was sitting by himself, lonely in the rain: Lisanna came to tell him to come inside, subsequently stating that she likes Dragons and that she finds them amazing. Natsu was very happy to hear this, starting to praise Igneel, and the two of them continued their conversation inside the guild building. Natsu and Lisanna further developed their intimate relationship thanks to Happy: when Happy was still in his egg, Natsu thought that the egg was that of a Dragon, and wanted to hatch it at all cost. Lisanna agreed on helping Natsu, and in no time the two became great friends.
The two of them proceeded to build a house for the egg. Lisanna commented that they were just like a real family; Natsu the daddy, Lisanna the mommy and Happy their child. A shy Natsu replied that that wasn't bad. Together in their hut, Lisanna and Natsu happily warmed their beloved egg. Eventually, Lisanna found Natsu very kind and cute, even asking him to be her husband in the future, which she later brushed off saying she was just joking when Natsu blushed. Lisanna kept jokingly teasing Natsu like this every now and then.
Following Lisanna's seeming death, Natsu built a grave at the hut where they used to keep Happy's egg, knowing that Lisanna loved to see the sunset there.
When Natsu and Happy arrived in Edolas and saw Lisanna in the Edolas Fairy Tail Guild, they rushed towards her in tears, whilst Lisanna seemed confused by their actions. When Natsu's true identity was revealed -that being one of an Earth Land Fairy Tail Mage- Lisanna ran from the room in shock. She knew that the real Natsu and Happy she had known were right there in front of her, but at the same time knew she owed so much to the Edolas Fairy Tail guild, and decided -despite her wish to reunite with Natsu properly- that she should say nothing and remain in Edolas.
Despite these thoughts however, she was eventually sent back to Earth Land from Edolas via the Anima. Seeing Natsu and her other guild mates again, Lisanna rushed and hugged Natsu, crying and blushing. She was relieved to finally tell Natsu the truth about her being the real Earth Land Lisanna that he knew.
Main article: Happy
When they both were kids, Natsu discovered what he believed to be a Dragon egg, which Lisanna volunteered to help him raise.
She deeply cared for the egg, as seen when she was crying when she thought that someone took it and was partially the reason behind Happy's name as she remarked that he had brought happiness to the guild, prompting Natsu to name him "Happy". Lisanna deeply missed Happy when she was sent to Edolas, as seen when she tightly hugged him upon their return to Earth Land.
Main article: Juvia Lockser
Lisanna and Juvia are fellow guildmates, and Lisanna was Juvia's partner in the S-Class Mage Promotion Trial, with her having chosen Juvia due to the good relationship she had with Juvia's Edolas counterpart. Despite Lisanna's good intentions in trying to help Juvia, Juvia had her doubts about the girl, thinking that Lisanna was after Gray. Despite this early tension due to Juvia, the two tried their hardest in the S-Class Trail and became friends. When Acnologia flew into the sky to destroy Tenrou Island, Lisanna and Juvia joined hands in preparation for the end.
Lisanna did this in order to make that world's Fairy Tail's members happy, hiding the fact that their Lisanna was dead. Since both Lisannas had the same appearance, even Mirajane and Elfman, that was that world's Lisanna's siblings, couldn't distinguish the girls. In fact, they were shown to be extremely moved and happy that Lisanna was back, as they thought that she had died.
However, at some point, Mirajane and Elfman found out that Lisanna wasn't their real sister, but moved by her action, they weren't able to tell her, preferring to keep the situation like it was to avoid more suffering. Then, they kept being lovely and careful towards their little fake sister.
During her stay in Edolas, Lisanna developed good relationships with the members of that Fairy Tail and got their respect, getting used to her new life. She also had to get used to her new siblings' different personalities, but seemingly she dealt with it easily, working with a kind and gentle Mirjane in the Guild's bar and, due to the fact that the Elfman of that world was weak and sensitive, Lisanna also started to protect him from the bullying of some members.
After the events of Edolas arc, however, Anima ended up sucking up all those who were from Earth Land because of the inner Magic Power, which included Lisanna. She even tried to explain what was going on, but Mirajane and Elfman calmed her down saying that they already knew. Kindly and moved, they said that they couldn't let Lisanna make her real siblings suffer, and with tears in their eyes, the siblings left each other.
Main article: Lucy Ashley
Lisanna made many friends during her stay in Edolas' Fairy Tail, one of them being the bossy Lucy Ashley.
Lucy cared for all the members of her guild, which included Lisanna. When Natsu Dragneel and Happy, both from Earth Land, saw their old friend Lisanna, whom they believed was dead, they began to cry and tried to hug her, scaring Lisanna. Lucy then readily kicked the both, protecting Lisanna and telling them to stop that.
Lisanna was also respected by Lucy despite her aggressive behavior, being one of the few members that could tell her to stop doing something and being posteriorly obeyed, as seen when she told her to stop bullying Natsu. After that, Lucy even showed embarrassment for her action.
Appearances in Other Media
Natsu and the Dragon Egg
As a young Mirajane is about to fight a young Erza, Lisanna questions Mirajane and Erza fighting again. Lisanna approaches a young Natsu and asks if she can help take care of the Egg. Natsu accepts and Lisanna goes on to tell Natsu that she once read in a book that an egg hatches when you warm it up. Natsu then immediately uses his Fire Dragon Slayer Magic to heat up the egg, which causes Lisanna to scold him. Lisanna then uses her Take Over to transform into a bird and warm up the egg, which surprises Natsu greatly.
A few days later, within a cozy fort, Natsu expresses his hunger and Lisanna offers to cook for him, telling Natsu that she is not as great at cooking as her siblings. As Natsu tells Lisanna that she is not allowed to cook the egg, Lisanna responds by telling him that she would not, as she wants to know what the egg will hatch into. Seeing Natsu expressing care for his egg, Lisanna jokingly asks him if she can someday be his bride when they grow up, causing Natsu to blush. Both Lisanna and Natsu are gleefully alarmed as they hear noises coming from the egg, assuming that the egg will hatch soon.
The next day, both Lisanna and Natsu are shocked as they discover that the egg has disappeared. Lisanna asks Mirajane if she has seen the egg, which she denies. Chaos subsequently ensues and both Lisanna and Natsu are saddened by the egg's disappearance, until Elfman enters the room with the egg at hand. Both Lisanna and Natsu are filled with joy, thanking Elfman for taking care of the egg. As the egg begins to hatch, Lisanna and the rest of the Fairy Tail members eagerly look on, until a blue winged cat emerges from the egg, enlightening Lisanna and Natsu. As the cat lands on top of Natsu's head, Lisanna acknowledges the sudden shift from anger to happiness among her peers, giving Natsu the idea of naming the blue winged cat Happy.
