History (Fairy Tail manga)EditMavis was born 118 years ago on Tenrou Island a small Island settlement south to the Kingdom of Fiore. As a child her parents untimely died and she was forced to work as a janitor at the Red lizard Guild to pay of the debt her parents owned the Guild Master. Although, she was mistreated, she vowed never to cry, as her parents once told her that fairies never approached those who were cry-babies.
One day the Island was attacked by a Dark Guild known as Blue Skull Running through the battlefield terrified, Mavis found the Guild Master's daughter, Zera, trapped under a pile of collapsed building. Mavis freed Zera and quickly rushed them towards a nearby forest, though Zera was hesitant to go and didn't want to abandon her guild or father. Convincing the girl that she can live on with her memories of them in her heart and that her life is more important, Mavis was shocked when the wounded Zera suddenly asked if they could be friends, as she had never had a true companion since her parents' untimely deaths. Though Mavis quickly agreed to Zera's request, she turned to see that the young girl had suddenly died. Mavis then by accident created an Illusion copy of the girl thinking as the real Zera and she never died. Afterwards she and Zera were island's only survivors.
Seven year later, three treasure hunters from Sylph Labyrinth appeared on the island. Standing in the shadows of the forest, Mavis smiled at them. As she sat and hummed to herself, she was approached by Zera, who scolded her for her dilly-dallying and stated that they agreed to clean out the library; Mavis remembered the day that Blue Skull attacked the island. Leaving her and Zera the only survivors.the two girls got to work, though stop when Zera said she could hear somebody approaching. Zera hid as a man walks into the room, screaming in shock when he saw Mavis standing nearby as he thought the island was deserted.Mavis then tricked the man into revealing that he was a treasure hunter, that his name was Yuri Dreyar and he and his comrades came to the island to find the rare magic treasure Tenrou Jade artifact. Mavis told Yuri that the item is a relic of her people and that she will not tell him where it is or let him have it. Yuri, however, was determined to get the information out of Mavis and proposed a game of wits: should he win, he will be told the Tenrou Jade's location; should Mavis win, Yuri had to take her on his travels to meet fairies. The game was one of guessing information about the opponent and Mavis quickly loses the practice round she requested to test the waters. Confident in his upcoming victory. After that Yuri sets up the judgment field and Mavis wins much Yuri's shock through a tactic that astonished him. Before Mavis could celebrate their victory they were interrupted by Warrod Sequen and Precht who came to tell him although that they found the place the Tenrou Jade artifact was supposed to be it was not there. Mavis and Yuri both confirmed the claim with their own eyes, with Mavis telling the men that she believed Blue Skull took the relic seven years ago during their raid. The three were not so keen on the idea of going against a Dark Guild though Mavis declared that she will help them and demanded they take her with them to the mainland. Despite being hesitant, the three eventually agreed, and that night prepared to leave; Yuri helped Mavis pack her belongings and is introduced to Zera. Though he could see her due to her being illusion being and was about to Mavis. She ignored him and was instead really exited abut the upcoming journey.
Upon arriving in Hargeon, Precht decided to go scout around for intelligence on Blue Skull with Mavis by his side. They arrived were they talked to a bartender though no thus far had told anything about Blue Skull. However Mavis was able to deduce that he was lying and called him out on it. After he reveled himself as a member of Blue Skull and trapped Mavis and Precht in a Magic Circle they are forbidden from leaving. As he was about to kill them Mavis realized that one of the glyphs in the circle was false and steps out. She casts Heavenly Wolf to intimated the bartender into giving them information.
Not long after they head to Magnolia thanks to info given to them by the bartender were Bluee Skull are located over the journey she grows close with the hunters they talked and bonded, and came to trust them quite a bit.One night on the journey when stopped for camp. Mavis and Zera bathed in a nearby lake with Zera asking Mavis to teach her magic. Mavis agreed, and together the two swam, reminiscing about their time on the island.
After arriving at the town they were shocked to see a quite barren and run down place with the skeleton of humungous dragon on top of the famous Kardia Cathedral. They soon encountered an old man who told them that Magnolia's dilapidated state was due to the presence of Blue Skull in the city, however before the old could continue he was killed by some Blue Skull members who turned on the group.
Precht, Warrod, and Yuri easily defeated them but the noise attracted a much larger force. Mavis immediately reacted to their presence, having created an army of soldiers with her Illusion Magic, which frightened her opponents and caused them to stop. She asked to see their Master who eventually walked out from the crowd of Blue Skull members. Mavis demanded the Tenrou Jade to be returned lest she unleash her power, but the Blue Skull Master was unfazed and saw through her Magic, dispelling it himself and sending his subordinates in to attack. Yuri and Precht were injured in the ensuing melee (the latter having lost his eye), but Warrod recovered them and pushed through to escape into the forest with Mavis and Zera
Later while recovering in the forest Mavis then went to collect some water to think upon her actions.

She asked if he was lonely and he responded that he was unsure, but happy to have merely talked to her, but quickly tried to leave lest he accidentally hurt her.

He agreed and for the next few days taught the group various types of Magic, resulting in Mavis calling herself the "Black Wizard. One spell that Zeref taught her was the Spell Law which he told her if she did not first master in 10 years that would bring disastrous consequences on the user.
After briefing her peers of their plan within the forest, they all moved out into the city, where Mavis stood idle alongside Zera within a rampaging crowd in Magnolia. Upon encountering Geoffrey within the blazed city, Mavis attempted to strike fear into him by threatening to take revenge over the Tenrou Island massacre. After being called out on her illusion, she revealed that they had isolated him away from the city.
