Grandeeney (Real Name)
Grandeeney (グランディーネ Gurandīne; Real Name)
Fairy Tail's Medicinal Advisor
|Base of Operations|
Porlyusica (ポーリュシカ Pōryushika) is an elderly woman that lives in a treehouse in the East Forest outside of Magnolia Town. She is also the Edolas counterpart to the Sky Dragon Grandeeney. She was once an active member of the Fairy Tail Guild but now serves as their Medicinal Advisor.
Porlyusica is a slim and tall elderly woman with pink hair, tied in a bun on the back of her head by two large pins with crescent moon-shaped edges, and with two bangs of hair left framing her face. She has reddish eyes, and a beauty mark located below her mouth, on the left side of her face.
Her attire consists of a dark green blouse with a tie around the collar, paired with a long matching skirt and simple shoes. Over this, she sports a crimson-colored cape, with a wide collar decorated by massive Dragon horn-like decorations protruding outwards, and edges adorned by white, arch-like motifs.
Porlyusica is usually portrayed as a calm, collected and responsible woman. She is withdrawn and reclusive because she doesn't like humans, looking down on them as "a race of simpletons who see fighting as the only way to accomplish things", suggesting a misanthropic nature, despite her being a human herself. This hate of hers leads to Porlyusica often acting in a comedic way, chasing after the humans who remain too long around her with a broom, and getting overly upset when they do something without having received her permission.
Porlyusica was born in Edolas, but was somehow sent to Earth Land by accident decades ago. She was helped by Makarov Dreyar and became fascinated with Earth Land, so much so that she denied every chance she had to return to her home world. She became and remained a member of Fairy Tail for a time, forming a team alongside Makarov, Yajima, Goldmine, Bob, and Rob. However, she eventually left the guild and adopted a hermit lifestyle in the forest outside Magnolia.
One time, Makarov, who had become the master of Fairy Tail, brought a new member of his guild, Erza Scarlet, to Porlyusica so that she could replace Erza's right eye, which she had lost in the Tower of Heaven, with an artificial one. That time, Porlyusica also learned that Rob was the one who taught Erza about Fairy Tail, and that he had died. Her treatment on Erza was successful for the most part, though she noticed that something was wrong after seeing that Erza could only cry out of her real eye. However, Erza laughed it off, saying she had already shed half of her tears anyway.
Sometime during her dwelling in Earth Land, she was contacted by Grandeeney, the Sky Dragon and her counterpart in Earth Land. Having been separated from her foster daughter Wendy Marvell, who was raised to become a Dragon Slayer, Grandeeney gave Porlyusica some Sky Dragon Slayer spells that she was unable to teach Wendy. Porlyusica promised her counterpart to give the instructions to the young Dragon Slayer if she ever met her.
Phantom Lord arcEdit
Makarov leads an attack against Fairy Tail's rival guild Phantom Lord, but is drained of his Magic power by an attack from Aria, one of Phantom Lord's Element 4, in the process. Fairy Tail members Alzack Connell and Bisca Mulan bring their Master to Porlyusica's house for treatment. Much to their surprise, she scolds and even slaps the unconscious Makarov for foolishly rushing into battle without considering his own physical condition. She notes that the cause of Makarov's injury was the use of Airspace Magic, and that because his Magic power has seemingly dissipated into thin air before anyone could gather it, his recovery will take a long time. By this time, Alzack and Bisca long overstay their welcome, and Porlyusica chases them out of her house in a comical fashion.
To her surprise, Makarov recovers much sooner than she expected. With his magic power fully restored, Makarov returns to aid his guild in their battle by fighting Jose Porla, Phantom Lord's Master. Porlyusica senses the Masters' battle from afar, which causes the entire environment around her to tremble as if it is afraid of their massive power and sends her flying into another fit of comical rage. She is suddenly visited by Mystogan, who is recognized by her as the one who had gathered Makarov's Magic power and hastened his recovery.
Despite her disapproval of the war between guilds, she points out that Mystogan should be fighting alongside his comrades. She is once again stunned into silence when Mystogan litters her yard with Phantom Lord Flags, indicating that he has defeated every subdivision of the guild on his own. Though impressed by Fairy Tail's strength, she remains worried that this would bring harm to themselves, to which Mystogan responds by telling her his own hopes that it will lead to a brighter future.
Fighting Festival arcEdit
During the "Battle of Fairy Tail", while the whole Magnolia Town is being held in check by Laxus Dreyar's Thunder Palace spell, Porlyusica appears in Fairy Tail's building, surprising Levy McGarden, who is asked by her where Makarov is. Levy leads her to the injured and unconscious Master, and Porlyusica claims that she is aware of the current situation. After staring at the old man for some time, she demands from Levy to bring Laxus there, much to her surprise. She states that Laxus is playing the fool unaware of his grandfather's critical condition. As Levy, visibly shaken, asks what the healer means, Porlyusica, with tears in her eyes, repeats her request one last time, stating that Makarov doesn't have much time left.
After Laxus is defeated by Natsu Dragneel and the city is saved, Porlyusica is seen leaving, but overhears some of the citizens wondering whether Laxus will succeed Makarov as Fairy Tail's Guild Master, but she remains silent. In the Guild's building, Erza Scarlet announces to the others that, thanks to Porlyusica's intervention, Makarov's life isn't at risk anymore.
Grand Magic Games arcEdit
Porlyusica receives a visit from Natsu, Wendy, Lucy, and Gray, who ask for medicine that would help them increase their magic power. Naturally, she tells them to go home and drives them away from her house.
However, she quickly has a change of heart after Wendy recognizes the similarities she has with Grandeeney, follows the Mages and reveals to them that she is the Grandeeney of Edolas. She also denies having known the Edolas counterparts of Igneel and Metalicana after Natsu asks her if she ever met them. As she promised the Sky Dragon, she gives Wendy the instructions for the two spells the Dragon hadn't been able to teach her, and walks away smiling after Wendy thanks her, calling her Grandeeney.
During the Grand Magic Games, Porlyusica comes to Domus Flau's emergency room to treat Wendy, where she appoints Magic Power Deficiency as the cause of her condition. She later says that the event lasts for seven days and that she may be able to cure Wendy before the main event. Wendy thanks her and calls her Grandeeney, but she tells her not to call her that.
As Wendy and Carla's condition is improving, Carla suddenly awakens from a disturbing vision. Porlyusica asks from Carla to describe her premonition and is told by the Exceed that she saw a white knight, an enormous amount of Magical Energy, and Lucy singing a song as the Mercurius collapses. The next day of the Magic Games, in which the Chariot takes place, Porlyusica finds herself tending to Natsu who was sick throughout the event. Later on, Lucy visits to check up on her fellow guild mates. After she leaves, Porlyusica asks Carla if she'll continue to keep silent about her premonition. Carla says that Lucy wouldn't believe her either way but Porylusica argues, saying that no one will if she doesn't believe in it herself. Later that same day, Porlyusica, Wendy and Carla are kidnapped by a group of men on the orders of Arcadios. Luckily for them, Natsu awakens in the sick bay and follows the group, intercepting and defeating them, rescuing the three in the process. When the men are later interrogated, they claim that they were ordered to "get the girl in the sick bay", and Porlyusica and Carla together figure out that the men's real target was meant to be Lucy. Despite the attempted kidnapping, Porlyusica returns to the sick bay to continue healing Elfman, who was injured in his fight against Bacchus. This time however, the Thunder God Tribe arrives to guard the room, in order to prevent a similar incident from occurring.
On the third day of the Grand Magic Games, Wendy is called forward to represent Team Fairy Tail A in a battle against Team Lamia Scale's Chelia Blendy. As Wendy fights, Porlyusica watches from the sidelines, and when Wendy unleashes Shattering Light: Sky Drill against her opponent, Porlyusica appears shocked that Wendy learned how to perform the technique so quickly. Porlyusica keeps watching the battle until it reaches its conclusion, with each team earning five points.
After the 4th day's event, Naval Battle, Porlyusica looks at a heavily injured Lucy after the latter is sent to rest in the sick bay following her recent ordeal. Upon the announcement that Teams Fairy Tail A and Fairy Tail B are to be combined, Porlyusica advises the Mages to wisely choose their members as she believes there will be a battle between all five members of each team by the 5th day.
During the final tag battle of the fourth day, Natsu, Gajeel, Rogue and Sting fight, and Porlyusica watches from the sickbay with the injured members. When Sting begins to unleash some of his strongest attacks in Dragon Force, Porlyusica questions the Dragon Slayer's element, wondering if it is "holiness".
At the last day, Porlyusica indifferently watches as Team Fairy Tail enters the arena.
Magic & AbilitiesEdit
Master Medical Specialist: Porlyusica is a specialist when it comes to healing, especially wounds caused by Magic. She seems to do so by employing special medicines, which she extracts from herbs. Through her medical knowledge and skills, she was capable of saving Makarov's life on two different instances when he was on the verge of death.
- Magical Power-restoring Medicine: One of Porlyusica's Magic solutions, it was made to restore Makarov's powers after they were dispersed by Aria's Metsu spell.
- Artificial Eye: Especially prepared for Erza, an artificial eye which replaced the one she lost during her time as a slave in the Tower of Heaven. Being a Magical object, it can be used to partially absorb the brunt of some static Magical attacks, such as the petrification caused by Evergreen's Stone Eyes, and to negate visual illusions, such as those created by Midnight's Reflector Magic.
Broom: Porlyusica was shown using a simple broom when comedically chasing after Alzack and Bisca and beating up some of her boxes of apples, angered by Makarov going to battle after she had finished treating him.
Main article: Makarov Dreyar
Makarov was Porlyusica's teammate during their time as young Mages of Fairy Tail.
Somehow, Porlyusica came from Edolas, where she was known as Grandeeney, to Earth Land. Makarov found her and helped her, which made Porlyusica decides to stay in the new world, indicating that she developed a great friendship with him, as Porlyusica usually hates human beings. She joined Fairy Tail, and formed a team with Makarov, Goldmine, Yajima, Bob and Rob.
Porlyusica later moved to a house in a forest, where she lived without the interference of humans. Despite that, she still cares for the Guild, mostly Makarov, that recognizes her abilities and was helped by her several times. In one of these occasions, he was drained of his magical power by Phantom Lord's Aria, and was brought to Porlyusica's House to be treated. Despite his seemingly serious state, Porlyusica still called him a fool, indicating that she was sure that he would recover. This didn't occur during the events of Fighting Festival arc: She came herself to Fairy Tail to cure an ill Makarov, but when she saw how critical his state was, she began to cry and beg Levy McGarden to tell Laxus Dreyar to stop what he was doing.
Some time ago, Makarov trusted Porlyusica to cure the eye of a young Erza Scarlet. Before doing it, Porlyusica made Makarov promise to don't use it to approach Erza when she's older, acting like a wife to her husband. This affective relationship between the two has been noticed by several people, prompting them to say that they're a former couple, despite of Porlyusica's negation.
Main article: Wendy Marvell
Wendy and Porlyusica met in X791. At the first sight, Wendy felt something different, like she knew Porlyusica from somewhere. And later, Wendy declared that she recognized her smell and voice as Grandeeney's, Wendy's foster Dragon mother. She felt yearning when it occurred, but she couldn't understand why Porlyusica was so rude to humans, since Grandeeney was the opposite. After Porlyusica revealed herself to be Grandeeney's Edolas counterpart, Wendy developed an attraction towards Porlyusica, calling her Grandeeney now, which made Porlyusica somewhat happy, despite the fact that she constantly tells Wendy to refrain from calling her that.
