Yep, I now represent my Fairy Tail OC, after thinking so much about her backstory xD` Anyway, I know she kinda looks mean here, but nvm, she's determined "With all that has been lost, I will begin my life anew..."
Before joining Fairy Tail, she originally belonged to a Dark Guild called "Dark Spades" under the mage who expertises in necromancy- Hades. Together with her childhood friend Arawn, a mage who specializes in dark flames, they aided their master in sacrifing an entire town to resurrect a powerful demon. Their guild is just composed of three people- Hades, Arawn and Isilya herself- but Hades made it a habit to use the undead as his servants, also to be used by his members. Isilya calls her guild as a "group" due to the lack of warmth that a guild must display.
Isilya belonged to a family who uses nature as their forte of spell. She's close friends with Arawn, who has a special magic on dark flames. Arawn was also raised alongside Isilya, under the watchful eye of her grandmother. However, their town was attacked and ravaged by Hades, used the townspeople as tributes to the demon whom he had wanted to resurrect. Isilya and Arawn survived the onslaught as Isilya's grandmother sacrificed herself to perform a spell to protect the two. When Hades discovered that two children survived, he decided to adopt them and make use of them when time comes.
Hades was interested with Arawn's flames and so decided to train him for his plans. Meanwhile, Isilya was forced to learned the dark arts-Puppet Magic: Mind control- a type of magic that allows her to control other people and use them like puppets to be manipulated. Isilya detested this magic very much but considering her other options, she had no other choice. Her range of control varies- she can control the revived undead, and she can control humans. One time, she almost faltered when Hades revived the corpse of her parents (for her training purposes), but Hades warned her; should she not obey him, Arawn will suffer the same fate of those who had perished, thus attacking them. Later that night though, Isilya wept, with Arawn trying to comfort her.
Hades was also known to be hostile to Isilya; he hated her attitude and he wanted to get rid of her but decided to make use of her when time comes. He strongly prefers Arawn whom he can easily influence due to the latter's anger (Arawn was abandoned by his parents, looked down upon by the townspeople, and so Isilya to the rescue). However, in spite of his hostility, Isilya was loyal to her master, even to the point spying the other dark guilds aiming to bother him with Arawn destroying them. They clearly understood that their master's sole goal was to revive the demon, sacking other guilds and towns for no reason or for materialistic reason doesn't interest him. Later, Isilya was known to be the eyes and ears of her master, and Arawn as the hands and feet of Hades. Another nickname that Isilya received was the "spinner", due to her magic, while Arawn was the "severer" known for his destructive dark flames.
Time went on, and the group had made devastations out of small towns, until Hades laid his eyes on Magnolia. However, he was aware of Fairy Tail and so decided to be too careful. He wanted to eliminate the group with the dragon-slayer first so, he faked a mission to be posted on the guild's headboard, knowing that it would lure the dragon slayer.
Natsu and the gang took the mission, and so they embarked on a journey. Hades, observing with glee, then asked Isilya to spy on them, but she must make sure that they won't see her. Then when given the signal, she can fight them, much better if killing them. Isilya obeyed in this simple task, but was having a hard time to fight them as she witnessed the warmth and camaraderie of these people, making her conclude that Fairy Tail is one of the ideal guilds she wanted to join, in contrast to the group where she is now. When the signal was given (the undead servants of Hades began attacking them, thus causing them to split up, leading Natsu and Erza to Arawn), Isilya's targets were Gray and Lucy. She used Puppet Magic to control Lucy's spirits to fight against her, thus leaving Isilya to battle Gray, which ended up as her puppet as well. When Gray was about to give Lucy the final attack, Isilya remembered what she had seen earlier- the warmth and friendship of these people before her- and so, she severed her control over Gray. Lucy and Gray wondered with her actions, but they didn't grab the opportunity to attack Isilya as she walked out, mumbling that she wasn't used to see live people killing each other.
As she was about to return to her master, she overheard Hades that as soon as he had sacrificed Magnolia, he will use Arawn's body as his vessel, for his body was slowly declining. Initially shock, and knowing what not to do, Isilya was about to run away but Hades had known her presence. He reprimanded her for not doing her job properly and was given a second chance to do so. Isilya once again went out to look for Gray and Lucy, and was able to track them, this time, asking for their help. Gray was hesitant at first, but Lucy listened to Isilya. Isilya revealed everything to the two; that their mission was a fabricated one in order to destroy the so-called dragon-slayer and his team who may be the ruin of her master's plans. His true aim is to sacrifice the entire town of Magnolia to the demon he wants to revive. Gray still couldn't trust her and so he questionned her as to why would she double cross her master and her guild. Isilya replied with a sad smile that first and foremost, what she joined isn't a guild, but rather a cold group composed of three members with hordes of undead aiding them. Second, her concern was a person dear to her; which is Arawn, whose body will be used by Hades. The two were speechless with her revelations but the silence broke down when another horde of undead surrounded them with Hades' voice echoing all over the place that he considered Isilya as a traitor and must perish among those who would get in his way. The three battled and defeated the horde of undead, and then Isilya led them to the place where Erza and Natsu is.
When the three arrived to their destination, it turns out that Arawn had gone berserk with his dark flames. Both Erza and Natsu were panting endlessly, almost running out of magical power. It turns out that Arawn was slowly possessed by his master's spirit , thus releasing a tremendous and terrifying amount of magical power. Isilya wanted to snap him out of Hades' control but as soon as Arawn saw Isilya, he called her as a traitor and targetted her but Isilya accepted all his flames with a smile. Arawn repeated his attack several times, but miraculously, Isilya withstood all his flames, saying that those destructive flames won't work against her believing of their bonds as they grew up together and looked after each other. Arawn gathered all his flames, this time, aiming to pulverize Isilya to ashes and launched it to her, but Natsu got in the way; eating all the dark flames (even if he knows the consequences after this). He then faced Arawn and fought him all the way, knocking him unconscious. After beating Arawn, Natsu collapsed unconcious; before dealing with Hades.
Isilya then revealed to Erza and Natsu (who gained consciousness) that their mission was a fraud, and that Magnolia was in huge trouble as it was the final offering for the demon Hades wanted to revive. When Arawn gained consciousness, he wanted to fight with Natsu once more, but the pain on his lower abdomen stung and forbade him so. Isilya told him about what she had overheard, but he was adamant to believe in her, as Hades told him that she was a traitor and must be eliminated, and he won't hesitate to do so. This was a blow to Isilya, who sadly raised her left hand and showed him her palm where a tattoo of a star was imprinted on it. Arawn looked at the other side and so he walked out, but as he did so, he was suddenly on his knees, complaining of a chest pain. As Isilya went closer to him, Erza blocked her way, saying that no matter what happens, she must stay away from him.
Correct to what Erza said, Arawn was once again possessed by Hades. Overpowered by a tremendous dark force, he began attacking indiscriminately to the group. Lucy had an idea of beating Hades as well, while someone would handle Arawn. Natsu and Erza decided to deal with Arawn, while Lucy, Gray and Isilya decided to deal with Hades.
As the three went out to Hades' location underground, they were pursued by the undead horde summoned by Hades himself. Realizing they were outnumbered, it was best that they simply proceed to Hades' location, while trying to avoid the undead. Isilya smiled, and used her Puppet Magic to control the undead, in order for them to attack each other, which might distract them for a few minutes.
Upon reaching the lone room underground, Hades was standing in front of a huge glowing magic circle. Isilya told Lucy and Gray that the man standing in front of that circle was Hades. Gray delivered a kick to the unsuspecting figure which simply limped on the floor. When Isilya removed the hood, she was horrified to see that the master she and Arawn had served was already dead- his face was old and withered, the mark of age and time. Upon that discovery, they can hear Hades' laughter all around, echoing throughout the dark chamber. Isilya resolved to destory the magic circle herself, knowing that it was the one that binded Arawn and Hades altogether, and to do that, she must use her original magic-Nature Magic- even if the ability of the magic itself is rather strange already.
Isilya almost risked her life in destroying the magic circle, at the same time leaving the dark chamber to ruins. However, she was spared from being crushed by the debris as Arawn returned to his senses after being almost knocked senseless by Natsu. Hades was completely wiped out from the world, the entire hideout was destroyed, with the undead horde returning to their peaceful slumber amidst the ruins.
Everyone was having fun in Fairy Tail but they all paused to see a limping Arawn carrying an unconcious Isilya. Others were aware that he was an enemy, so they were ready to attack him, just in case. However, Natsu bravely approached him, asking him what led him there. Arawn requested if Fairy Tail could house Isilya for a while, for the reason that the guild suits her. However, if Fairy Tail declines, then he'll be on his way, looking for another guild. Before Natsu could respond, Mackarov stepped in and agreed but with the condition that as soon as Isilya regains consciousness, the decision for her to stay or leave must be her own decision. Arawn conceded to this plan and left Isilya under the care of Fairy Tail. As soon as Isilya regained consciousness, she was rather surprised to see her surroundings change, with Lucy watching over her. Lucy had told her about the arrangements between Arawn and Mackarov, and when asked about her decision, Isilya merely hung her head and said that she'll think about it. When Lucy left her alone, she wept, remembering that a few years ago, Arawn made her promise that as soon as time would come when they would be separated, she must not look for his whereabouts, and move on with the life that she will soon have without him at her side because he had caused enough trouble for her.
After a day of thinking, Isilya decided to be a part of the guild. Her guild mark is on her right hand. However, she gained little trust from everyone until she was immediately dragged by Cana for a drinking contest, which she didn't refuse though Cana won (obviously >.>).
Isilya was rather dumbfounded with her new guild- their actions and mannerisms were very alien to her especially with Gray's stripping and Natsu's endless rants and challenges to others. Even Erza was starting to be eccentric to her. But even her new guild acts this way, nonetheless she was happy...but she would be happier of she could share this to Arawn, whom she had no contact with ever since. Isilya decided to stop using Puppet magic and focus more on her true ability- Nature magic- although she kept this to the others.
Arawn. Isilya's childhood friend who was raised alongside her. The two were known to have looked after each other, even when they were adopted by Hades. Isilya was overprotective to Arawn, and all Arawn could do was put Isilya into huge trouble. However, he told her that when time comes when they are released of Hades' service they must part into separate ways,she mustn't look for him. Isilya may have developed feelings for him, but both seemed to be oblivious.
Hades. Isilya's former, hostile master and adoptive parent. He took Isilya and Arawn under his foster care but with hidden intentions. He forced her to use Puppet Magic,and would even go at lengths by threatening Arawn's life. He preferred Arawn over Isilya because he can influence the young mage. However, he was impressed by Isilya's loyalty to him. Hades was always hooded, and covered himself in various layers of cloth. It turns out that Hades had a body of an old, withered man, and was about to weaken himself due to age, that was why he intended to use Arawn's body as his.
1) Isilya is a good cook, that's why Natsu and Erza loves to barge in her apartment, plus Isilya seems so hospitable...very hospitable. Although when Isilya was bothered by Natsu and Gray's bickering, she almost forgot that she was cooking, until the burnt smell bothered her....
2) She has a star tattoo on her the palm of her lefthand. This was actually tattoed by Arawn when they were kids as a memento of their friendship. Arawn, as well, has the same tattoo. When he questionned her about her loyalty, Isilya simply raised her left hand, showing the mark, as if asking whether he doubts their friendship. Not knowing what to do, Arawn walked out, before being once again possessed by Hades. After all, this idiot trusts her so much...plus she's the one who's on the lookout for him.
3) She has a queer imagination. She wants to have a pet fairy and collect fairy dust ._.
4) At first, Gray didn't trust her, and some of the guild. But after proving her worth, she became a friend to everyone....especiallly Juvia...and yes, Cana. Yup, as her initiation, she was challenged by the latter in a booze-drinking contest.
5) Fashion sense: Always wearing corsets and long skirts. Though she wanted to change wardrobe...
6) Personality: Despite having sharp eyes and arched, mean-looking eyebrows (There. I said it.), Isilya is a nice girl, that's why Hades seem to loathe her at first glance. She's depicted as motherly though at times she becomes too domestic. However, she is ruthless once thwarted and when her friends are in huge peril. In fights, she has agility, and knows self-defense in case if her magic doesn't work.
