Warrod Sequen

Warrod Sequen is one of the Ten Wizard Saints and among them, he is ranked fourth in terms of strength of the Four Gods of Ishgar and the Wizard Saints in general. He was also one of the founding members of Fairy Tail, and now serves as one of the eight members of the reformed Magic Council, alongside the other Wizard Saints, barring Makarov and God Serena. A century ago, Warrod was a very well-built young man; his head, somewhat rectangular in shape, was covered with messy hair on its top. Back then, Warrod dressed himself in a sleeveless top with a belt and trousers. In the present, Warrod's appearance has been considerably affected by his advancing age, with the most significant change being that he now has plant-like physical features: his head resembles a slightly gnarled tree trunk, whilst his hair resembles a leafy treetop. His attire consists of a high-collared kimono tied with a belt, loose trousers, a coat, and a pair of boots.

In the past, Warrod used to be a very calm individual, to the point that he used to be calmly standing with his eyes closed, seemingly enjoying the nature surrounding him. However, he also expressed excitement upon seeing the Fairy Tail Guild's building finished, smiling in the photo that was taken afterwards. Nowadays, Warrod showcases a specific sense of humor, making unexpected jokes to the point when the ones listening to him end up confused. In spite of this, Warrod knows when to take things seriously, as shown when explaining to Team Natsu the job they have to do. He also seems to be quite modest as he claims that despite being the 4th Wizard Saint, there are many Mages stronger than him. Having strong bonds to the nature, Warrod has been using his Magic to halt the spread of the deserts, which he describes to be his "hobby". Furthermore, he seems to treasure his memories, as seen when he recalled the time of Fairy Tail's establishment, being happy to see that the current Fairy Tail generation has inherited the feelings of the first master, Mavis Vermilion, or when he reminisces Mavis' ideals of the Fairy Tail guild. In X686, Warrod, with his companions, Precht Gaebolg and Yuri Dreyar, a trio of treasure hunters, traveled to Tenrou Island in search of the Tenrou Jade, an S-Class Secret Treasure. While Yuri wandered off, Precht and Warrod searched for the treasure and discovered it already been taken. Meeting back up with Yuri, who had encountered a young girl, Mavis Vermilion, Precht explained the situation and showed them the evidence of the Jade's removal. Mavis, distraught by the robbery of the symbol of the island, told them she believed the Mage Guild Blue Skull had stolen the treasure seven years ago when her home was devastated by them and implored them to take her, and later her friend Zera, back to the continent to recover it. They agreed and returned to the continent. Back at the port town of Hargeon, Precht, dissatisfied with what they had gained in the journey, namely, two "brats", went off into the town to find information about Blue Skull, somewhat reluctantly accompanied by Mavis, while Warrod and the rest being left with the task of finding an inn. Later that day, Precht and Mavis returned with information on the Blue Skull's apparent headquarters and the group headed to Magnolia Town.

On the journey, the treasure hunters and the girls bonded, with Warrod growing fond of Mavis and suggesting they give the Jade to her when they recover it. After three days, they arrived in the town and were shocked to find it in a ruined state with a massive Dragon skeleton perched on the once 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, but before he could continue he was killed by Blue Skull members, who also turned their attention on the group; Warrod, Precht, and Yuri easily defeated them but the noise attracted a much larger force. Mavis created illusions to scare them away, but the Guild Master of Blue Skull revealed himself and informed everyone that the illusions were fake, which resulted in another brawl erupting; Yuri and Precht were injured during the melee (the latter having lost his eye), but Warrod recovered them and pushed through to escape into the forest with Mavis and Zera. Warrod and the others then learned Magic from the Black Mage Zeref himself, just 10 days before Fairy Tail was founded. While Precht and Yuri were recovering in the forest, Mavis volunteered to collect some water and later returned with a mysterious young man who she said was going to teach them Magic (while keeping a safe distance much to Warrod's chagrin). The man, Zeref, did so for the next few days, teaching Warrod Tree Magic. After Warrod and co. received a briefing over a plan created by Mavis, they all head out and execute their strategy, with Warrod encountering Geoffrey in an attempt to lure his entourage away from him. As Warrod made his way back, he found that Geoffrey's cage was open and wondered what was going on as they were supposed to capture him. Later, when everything settled down, Warrod greeted Yuri when he awoke from resting, and when Yuri grabbed Warrod by his shirt and frantically asked him about Mavis's whereabouts, Warrod and Precht told him that Mavis suffered adverse affects from using an incomplete version of Law, and would no longer be able to grow. A bit after this, Precht and Warrod hear Zera's voice and reason that Mavis must finally have realized that Zera was an illusion. After those events, Warrod was confused at the reveal that Mavis wants to found a Mage guild. When she said that she wants Magnolia to be its home, Warrod asked her why she doesn't choose her home instead, but she said the guild supported the town's economy; Warrod agreed and pondered that although Blue Skull was evil, it helped Magnolia stand on its feet financially. After Mavis said that together they can help the town and that they can treat Tenrou Island as their holy land, Warrod finally agreed to take part in it. However, he was bemused when Mavis revealed the guild's name being Fairy Tail, until she explained its meaning. As Warrod and his teammates abandoned their Treasure Hunter guild, he was found spacing out by Yuri, who called him once the guild was complete to take a group photo. He also supported his friends' idea about Mavis becoming the Master. The group then embarked on a new adventure together.
