The Iron Dragon (鉄竜 Tetsuryū)
Gajeel Redfox (Foster Son)
Episode 29 (mentioned)
Metalicana possesses a blunt round head. On the side of his head he has a small light eye. Befitting his epithet, he has a metallic shine on his entire body. Both his neck and his arms are covered in several layers of plates. Metalicana also appears to possess wings.
According to Gajeel, Metalicana is quite selfish. Nonetheless, despite this claim, he took Gajeel in, raising him like he was his own son, teaching him his signature Iron Dragon Slayer Magic. Gajeel himself seems interested in Metalicana's whereabouts after his sudden disappearance, possibly implying a caring side.
Metalicana, for some unknown reason, raised a human child, Gajeel Redfox, and taught him how to read, write, and fight, especially granting him the knowledge to use his exclusive Iron Dragon Slayer Magic. However, on the 7th of July during the year X777, much like other known Dragons such as Igneel and Grandeeney, he mysteriously disappeared without a word, leaving Gajeel to fend for himself.
After Face's timer reaches zero, Metalicana reappears after over fourteen years of absence alongside the other Dragon Slayers' foster parents and participates in the destruction of the numerous Face bombs.
Magic & AbilitiesEdit
Flight: Being a Dragon, Metalicana possesses the ability to fly through the air using his wings.
Immense Durability: Likewise, Metalicana, due to his notable iron body, emerged unscathed from the repeated assaults on all the Face bombs.
