|~ Ikaruga to Jellal Fernandes.|
|“||There exists nothing under the sun that I cannot slice.||„|
|~ Ikaruga to Shô.|
|“||I have never been defeated, not once since the guild was founded until this day... However both you and Jellal are destined for defeat. Fifteen minutes, see it plummet down, shining light of justice bright, bringing death to all... A beastly poem...||„|
|~ Ikaruga to Erza Scarlet.|
Ikaruga is a supporting antagonist in the Tower of Heaven arc of the anime and manga series Fairy Tail. She was the leader of Trinity Raven, a group of assassins from the Death's Head Caucus that worked under Jellal Fernandes.
She is voiced by Naomi Shindō in the Japanese version, and by Jennifer Seman in the English version.
Ikaruga is a calm and collected person though she can also be seen praising their skills if they prove themselves worthy. However, she was visibly upset when she thought Erza Scarlet was underestimating her, implying very great self-confidence and pride.
She fought in the Cabria War along with her teammates and killed every ranked officer under the Western Army's command. She has been with the Death's Head Caucus Guild since its inception and has not lost a single battle up until the present day.
Magic and Abilities
Sword Magic (剣の魔法 Ken no Mahō): Through this Magic which she uses concurrently with her sword, Ikaruga can perform various sword spells which were strong enough to break one of Erza's most powerful armors.
- Yasha's Empty Flash (夜叉閃空 Yasha Senkū): A technique that allows Ikaruga to slash whatever she is attacking without touching it with the blade, shattering even Magic Armor or weapons with one attack.
- Garuda Flame (迦楼羅炎 Karura-en): A technique that creates fire from Ikaruga's blade. It has the same properties as Yasha's Empty Flash and was powerful enough to destroy Erza Scarlet's Flame Empress Armor, which is known for halving the damage inflicted by fire-based attacks.
Master Swordsmanship Specialist: Ikaruga is masterful in swordsmanship, and before her match with Erza Scarlet she had never lost a battle. She was able to easily slice and defeat Shô before he could react and even managed to slice his cards in half, showing that Ikaruga also possesses immense precision with her cuts. She was able to match and even overwhelm Erza with her swordplay and shattered most of her armors with relatively little effort. She is seemingly capable of attacking things which are out of her sword's range, sending slashes which fly through the air itself which can remain floating in it until the right moment to slash, according to Ikaruga. Immense Speed: Ikaruga was able to slice Erza and Shô, who were both some meters away from her position, without them seeing her move. She was also able to destroy Erza's Purgatory Armor before Erza could react.
Immense Reflexes: During the fight against Erza, Ikaruga has shown great ability both in dodging and parrying the powerful shots of the Fairy Tail's S-Class Mage and, at the same time, react very quickly to counterattack.
- It is unknown whether she died during the Tower of Heaven arc or during the eight years she didn't appear in the series, since she reappeared later as a Historia.
