Natsu and Zeref met on Tenrou Island while Zeref cried at seeing his . to free everyone causing Invel to smirk as he confirms Natsu's connection to Zeref. Natsu. Hello Everyone! This is kinda different from your usual fanfictions, but I had to make something to celebrate the continuation of the Fairy Tail. His brother (Natsu) died of a tragic accident when he was very young (I'd say 4–5 ) meet each other in the Alvarez Arc and Zeref tells Natsu their relationship.
Also, the rumors said that Erza and Laxus were stronger.
If he had just heard the rumors, he would have wanted Erza, not Natsu, since she was able to take a full blast of the Jupiter cannon AND fought the strongest of the Element 4. This means that Zeref at least knew Natsu personally and saw that he might be strong enough to kill him. One small thing I'd like to add before I talk about another point is that in the Tenroujima arc. While the first point proved that Zeref knew Natsu personally, the next is going to tell us how he knew him personally.
In Fairy Tail, Natsu said that he doesn't remember his actual father but only remembers his foster father, Igneel. Zeref tried to keep himself isolated, so he wouldn't kill anyone. Could it be possible that Zeref abandoned Natsu when he was really young, so his powers wouldn't kill his own son?
He would've wanted him to get stronger to kill him. Zeref is the most likely character to be his father unless Natsu's mother was any of Gildarts girlfriends. However, there is something people say that makes it impossible for Zeref to be Natsu father and I'll explain why that statement is wrong in the next point.
Alright, the next point that will be talking about very complicated by the way. It's about Natsu's age. People say that it's impossible that Zeref is Natsu's father because Zeref is too old. However, Natsu's age hasn't been confirmed at all.
Also, Zeref has been living for over years and he still looks like he's in his 20s. Natsu could too have eternal youth if he was Zeref's son. Some actual evidence from the story is in the 'Fairy Wars arc. Along with the girls turn into stone and the Guild Master, Natsu was trapped in the guild from the barrier. The rule was exactly word for word like this: However, Gajeel wasn't able to pass through the barrier. This could mean that Natsu wasn't able to pass because it also effected dragon slayers for some reason.
Natsu soon collapses due to having a tumor develop in his body and Happy is forced to carry him back to the guild.
Natsu is soon healed by a Shield of Spriggan named Brandish who shrinks his tumor down to a size where it won't affect him. Natsu is then placed in a bed to rest but recovers and manages to defeat another Shield of Spriggan named Jacob who attacked the guild hall. After organizing his army, Zeref internally announced his intentions to crush his younger brother and former lover. After coming face to face with, August accuses Brandish of being a traitor however, she manages to sway his mind and after he looks at the gathered mages behind her, he spots Natsu who he seems to recognize due to the latter's relationship to Zeref.
However, August is stabbed by Brandish who was brainwashed by Mest causing August to take on a new form and retaliate with a powerful magic blast. As this happens, Zeref notes of strange magic presence before being teleported to Fairy Tail by one of his shield of Spriggan, Irene Belserion placing him in the same area as Fairy Heart Mavis.
As this was happening, Natsu and his friends wake up in a new location and begin traveling back to Fairy Tail to help Mavis. Elsewhere Dimaria, a Shield of Spriggan who while tied up attempts to escape two Lamia Scale mages before their souls leave their bodies. Dimaria turns and sees a man that says he's come to save her she is shocked when she realizes she was saved by a fellow Shield of Spriggan named Larcade Dragneel whose exact relation to the two Dragneel brothers is unknown.
Lacrade took Dimaria to regroup with the other Spriggan 12 who have taken control of the Fairy Tail guild, Larcade remarked on Dimaria and Brandish's friendship as August angrily glared at him and Invel stated this was because of his lack of attendance at the meetings. Mavis took note of Larcade's magic power sweating and trembling as Zeref revealed some information about Larcade that he is his secret weapon against Acnologia because of the vast capabilities of his unknown magic.
When Invel a Shield of Spriggan freezes Natsu and his friends except GrayNatsu manages to free everyone causing Invel to smirk as he confirms Natsu's connection to Zeref. Natsu is soon taken away by Brandish while Invel forces Gray and Juvia to fight to the death. As this happens, Invel recalls a memory of Zeref showing him the pendant he wears holds a picture of Natsu and Zeref as children.
Invel internally states his intention of molding Gray into a warrior capable of defeating E. D due to believing it is the only thing standing in Zeref's way of his ultimate goal. After Gray and Juvia seriously wound themselves, Invel goes off to destroy E. However, an enraged Gray having been saved by Juvia arrives and brutally attacks before defeating Invel for his vile actions. Wounded and laying on the ground, Invel reveals to a shocked Gray that Natsu is E.
D as well going on to reveal the demon's status as Zeref's brother and giving him information about the demons. As this happens, Brandish re-enlarges Natsu's tumor after seeing his true strength and seeing him as a threat but she is soon taken down by another shield of spriggan Dimaria who is angered at Brandish's betrayal. Dimaria took Lucy and Natsu hostage planning to torture them for their turning Brandish to their side. While being held hostage by Dimaria, Natsu remained unconscious but when Dimaria moves to mutilate Lucy's face, Natsu awoke and unleashed his powers of E.
This allowed him to break free of his constraints, completely able to move within Dimaria's time stopping magic and brutally attack a shocked Dimaria to save Lucy. After defeating Dimaria, Natsu held Lucy and noticed she was unresponsive not knowing this was due to Dimaria's magic as he broke down his demonic powers and instincts took over and he went out to find his brother. Natsu's search for Zeref caused him to seriously burn alive any enemy soldier who stood in his way as he focused solely on locating his brother and soon deduced he was at the guild hall.
As Natsu made his move, he was met by Gray who is now aware of his friend's demon statusNatsu told Gray to move aside as he wanted to defeat Zeref but Gray refused and questioned if he really was E. D but Natsu just orders him to move and speaks about killing Zeref. Recalling the information Invel gave him, Gray takes this a confirmation of Natsu being a demon and Zeref's brother.
Out of hatred for Zeref's demons, Gray declares he will kill Natsu resulting in a battle where Natsu stated he can't be stopped as he recall what triggered his demon powers to awake.
Natsu and Gray, both using their demonic powers start fighting seriously injuring the other while ignoring their surroundings such as the light of Fairy Law.
Just as they are about to deliver a fierce blow to the other, their fight is stopped by Erza who reprimands them for their foolish actions. Erza cries while telling them that their master died using fairy law before hugging them. Seeing Erza's tears, Natsu is reminded of his reason for Jellal which was for making Erza cry. With that, he regains his reason as his partially transformed body turns back to normal causing him to slowly lose consciousness but he is caught by Lucy.
Relieved that she is alive, Natsu rests in her arms. When Irene Belserion attacks, Natsu is shielded from harm by Lucy. Later on, Larcade looks down on the battlefield displeased that half of the army was taken out.
The shield of spriggan decides to take matters into his own hands otherwise he wouldn't be able to face his father, revealing that he is the son of Zeref Dragneel and the nephew of Natsu Dragneel. Larcade then uses his unknown magic which is called "Pleasure" and explains to Yukino and her allies it is a magic which takes the souls of those who are not pure of heart.
Larcade's usage of his magic unknowingly affects Irene allowing Natsu to be taken away from the battle to be taken to Porlyuscia. Larcade's enemies express a pleasured look of pain but before he can get rid of any enemies he is halted when Zeref also under the affect of Larcade's magic telepathically contacts. Zeref warns Larcade that his magic is not just having an affect on their enemies but on their allies as well. Realizing his error, Larcade quickly stops his spell before he is confronted by Yukino who attempts to attack him because of his magic causing her sister to faint but Larcade subdues her and uses his magic on her before she is saved by Kagura.
Kagura questions as to why a person using such pure magic would serve the evil Zeref as Larcade reveals to the Mermaid Heel Mage that Zeref is his "father". When questioned about this, Larcade gives the gathered mages his full name and his status as Zeref's "son". Yukino and Lector note on how Zeref and Larcade have the same the last name as Natsu before he reveals to them that Natsu is his "father's" younger brother thereby making him larcade's "uncle" which greatly shocks them.
Larcade states he wished to finally meet his uncle as it appears Zeref holds him in higher regard than him his own son which he deems unforgivable, showing that he harbors jealously towards Natsu. After a fierce one sided battle, Larcade defeats Kagura before planning to use his magic on her and the other mages present.
Later on, August who has defeated Crime Sorceire walks away from his defeated foes after revealing to a shocked Jellal of Zeref having a son that never knew love and remarks to himself that the only one who could possibly defeat his majesty's child it would be his mother who turns out to be Mavis Vermillion, how this is possible is unknown. Meanwhile as he was being tended to by Porlyuscia, the elderly mage doctor informs everyone that Natsu's condition goes beyond her field of expertise.
fairy tail - What is the relationship between Natsu and E.N.D? - Anime & Manga Stack Exchange
As Natsu laid unconscious, his body started to smoke and become ice cold as his friends cry out his name. Natsu's mind drifted into his subconscious while there Natsu met with Zeref. Natsu immediately attacked what he thought to be Zeref but was told that he is not the real Zeref instead a projection who informs Natsu his death will come very soon and it is for that reason he has come to guide Natsu through some of his lost memories.
Zeref requests Natsu calls him "big brother" while they are together for the time being but Natsu refuses and demands answers. Zeref then shows Natsu their time together as children before showing him their parents and reveals that the family lived in a small peaceful village which later got destroyed by a dragon. A surprised Natsu soon sees the death of his parents and that of himself as well as his subsequent revival as E. D before Zeref recalls already telling Natsu about this as he later entrusted him in the care of Igneel.
Zeref further explains that Natsu had later met the other dragon slayers and states that their lack of recollection on these matters is most likely due to the Dragon Soul Seal and their awakening in X This likely explains why Natsu didn't recognize Zeref on Tenrou Island or his recalling Wendy's name in their meeting. Zeref soon disappears and is replaced by Sting who explains to the confused Natsu that his subconscious erased Zeref's presence and that if Natsu follows him he'll arrive at his answer.
Natsu questions this as Sting states he'll find out the true identity of what it is that lurks inside his body. In reality, the real Sting saves Yukino and the others from Larcade and angrily comments on how he smells similar to Natsu as Larcade smirks at this.
Sting questions Larcade, as Lector and Yukino both inform Sting of Larcade's relation to Natsu and Zeref as the latter is confused about the stench being too similar until Larcade informs him that Natsu is also essentially Zeref's child because he is a demon from Zeref's book before attacking Sting.
Afterwards, Larcade overpowers Sting and when questioning him as to why he was fighting for the sake of guild that wasn't his own; Sting informed Larcade it was for the sake of his friends and that of Natsu's. Larcade then tells Sting that he will be the one to kill Natsu having decided on that for years. After Sting achieves White Shadow Dragon Mode, he tells Larcade that he's been following Natsu for years and right now he is standing in his way as the latter states he will kill Natsu while calling Sting a weakling who can't stand up to him.
With that Sting strikes Larcade engages in a fierce battle with the Shield of Spriggan who performs a powerful spell while stating none can resist it which is why his father has entrusted him with the task of defeating Acnologia. However, after a long time passes Sting manages to overpower Larcade with a powerful attack as disbelieving Larcade can only weakly call out for his father before losing consciousness.
Inside the Fairy Tail Guild, Zeref having sensed Larcade's helplessness can sit only with a solemn look on his face.
Elsewhere in Natsu's subconscious, Sting is replaced by Rogue who tells Natsu the truth about his scarf as he learns Lucy's ancestor Anna who Natsu confuses for Lucy made it out of Igneel's fallen scales which changed colors. Zeref reappears to tell his younger brother that his "death" has drawn near stating the answers lay ahead for Natsu.
In reality, as everyone is worried for Natsu's well-being the latter mutters he will defeat Zeref in his sleep as Happy breaks down in tears while accidentally revealing to all that if Zeref were to be killed then Natsu will die along with him. In his subconscious, Wendy appears and tells Natsu about the creation of Dragon Slayer magic as he expresses his anger about the guide in his mind constantly changing.
Gajeel soon appears and berates Natsu as this was his subconscious' way to restore his lost memories and he along with Wendy proceed to tell an annoyed Natsu that he is getting closer to his answer. Natsu continues his mental journey but Wendy and Gajeel are no longer present but a projection of Igneel appears to tell Natsu about the dragon seed.
He reveals that is what causes dragon slayers to transform into dragons but because he entered Natsu's body by using the dragon soul, he managed to stop its growth. He states it shouldn't be growing anymore as Natsu states it probably because Igneel left his body but the dragon states that's not the case due to their being one more seed in Natsu's body which is called the demon seed which is the proof of natsu's demon status. Igneel states the two seeds are trying to merge together which is what is happening to Natsu's body right now.
A shocked Natsu asks Igneel is this the reason of why he's dying, to which his foster father solemnly confirms as Natsu gives off a sad look. Natsu begins to lament his impending death before Igneel hits on the head telling him he would die if the seeds fuse but if he chooses one of them he'll either become a demon or a dragon.
He then asks Natsu his choice as the latter states he won't become neither as no matter what he is human as Igneel compliments his choice stating that though Natsu was revived as a demon and raised as a dragon he was human. With this choice, the seeds in Natsu's body break as Igneel tells Natsu to rise on his feet as the latter thanks his foster father.
Natsu wakes up to find himself with Happy and Lucy the latter being naked to warm up Natsu's bodyhe partially informs them of his journey and how he believes he is human though it is unknown whether this is fully true.
The group is interrupted when a light engulfs them. After Universe One wears off, Natsu and the others are sent to Lucy's apartment where Natsu states they will begin their journey to their guild. Natsu and his group soon meet Brandish and shrunken Dimaria who expresses her fear of Natsu as he states his lack recollection on the beating he gave her.

When Porlyusica, Evergreen and an unconscious Juvia arrive they question if the group on where Gray is before they all feel the might of August's power before the Shield of Spriggan fights against Gildarts. With that being settled, Natsu starts to run telling Lucy that he knows where Gray is.
Meanwhile at the Fairy Tail Guild, Zeref tells an unidentified person that he never expected to see them arrive mentioning he expected Jellal or Laxus to show up calling his anticipation a disappointment. The person turns out to be a wounded Gray who tells Zeref to leave the Guild as he is sitting in his spot. Zeref muses out an apology to his brother for what is about to occur. As Zeref and Gray stare each other down, the black mage revealed that he is fully aware of Gray being best friends with his brother and of his tragic past caused by one of his demons.
Gray is surprised that Zeref knows of him as Zeref reveals that he also knows of Lucy, Happy, Erza, Wendy and Gajeel stating one must know of their enemies. Gray skips to the point by asking Zeref what his goal was as Zeref answered it was to procure Fairy Heart.
Rebuking this, Gray mentions Zeref's massive army and his immortality questioning why he wanted more power as Zeref states with Fairy Heart he will be able to defeat Acnologia causing Gray to express shock. Zeref states with that in mind he wouldn't mind help if Gray would offer as Gray became annoyed with this. Zeref then tells Gray that his full goal isn't something as insignificant as that and off-screen divulges his plan to Gray as the latter becomes terrified at the unknown plan.
Zeref then tells Gray that not even his subordinates know of his intentions before stating he will kill Gray so as to cause the final trigger in Natsu to awaken his full abilities.
However, Gray tells Zeref he will defeat him but Zeref states it is impossible as he is immortal though does state if he does then Natsu will die. D for the pain he went through but realized it was pointless stating no matter what Natsu was his friend.
