Laxus Dreyar is the 23-year-old S-Class mage of Fairy Tail guild. He is the grandson of Fairy Tail’s master, Makarov Dreyar, and son of Ivan Dreyar.
Laxus is a master of Lightning magic. It allows him to produce, control and manipulate lightning and electricity at his will. Through its use, Laxus can not only generate lightning from his body, but also make it appear from almost anywhere to strike his opponents, taking them by surprise. By generating electricity on different parts of his body, he’s capable of making his attacks in melee deadlier, and of propelling himself around to gain extra momentum. The bright light from his lightning can be also used to momentarily blind enemies. In addition, much like other Elemental types of Magic, Lightning Magic allows Laxus to turn his own body into lightning, in order to evade enemy attacks, move around at high speed and strike every opponent crossing his path. Lightning dragon’s lacrima was implanted into his body when he was young by Ivan Dreyar. Hence, he possesses lightning dragonslayer magic and can also change his skin into dragon scales and use some exclusive dragonslayer attacks like lightning dragon’s roar.
His eye color is different in the manga and the anime. In the manga, it is orange/dark yellow, while the anime portrays it as greenish blue.
