|~ Ikaruga watching a battle|
Ikaruga is the undefeated leader of the mercenary band Trinity Raven, an infamous group of assassins for hire and members of the Dark Guild, Death's Head Caucus. She was hired by Jellal Fernandes as part of the "game" he intended to play with Erza Scarlet and the other members of Fairy Tail, proving to be a powerful obstacle in the heroes' quest to stop Jellal from activating Etherion.

Intelligence: A master swordswoman, Ikaruga is the infamous leader of the successful assassination team, Trinity Raven, single-handedly slaying every commissioned officer of an entire army during the Cabrian War and had never lost a battle prior to her confrontation with Erza Scarlet. She displays enough precision to easily slice Sho's cards lengthwise down the thinnest edge, outmatching the Erza for most of their battle with minimal effort. However, she is somewhat arrogant due to her overwhelming success, which ultimately led to her undoing when she underestimated Erza's decision to forgo armor and focus solely on offense.
Weaknesses: Having never lost a battle before her confrontation with Erza, Ikaruga is somewhat arrogant
- Yasha's Empty Flash: Ikaruga slashes at her opponents even if she is only in their general vicinity, allowing her to cut down the ring of swords sent at her by Erza with ease before shattering Erza's armor with another swing. She displays enough precision with this technique to slice Sho's cards lengthwise down the thinnest edge with no visible effort.
- Garuda Flame: Ikaruga spins in a circle before performing Yasha's Empty Flash, unleashing a torrent of flame in her chosen direction. These flames were powerful enough to overwhelm the protection of Erza's Flame Empress Armor, which halves the damage the wearer takes from fire.
