Saijo Strife (西条ストライフ, Saijō Sutoraifu) is a S-Class Mage Candidate of the Fairy Tail Guild, founder of Folk Team, and a member of the Paths of Mastery.


Saijo's noticeable features are his black-colored hair, dark red eyes and fair skin tone. He is slightly toned and muscular. During his entire life searching for his parent's, he received many scars around his torso, legs and arms. His guild mark is close to his elbow on his forearm is and is maroon in color. He originally wears a brown green coat over a long sleeved black shirt, black pants, and boots. After the time skip, he wears a white coat over a white long-sleeved shirt with black pants and boots.


When he was young, Saijo was kind and caring towards others. He always smiles and speaks openly when being friendly. He would go out of his way to protect those he cares about, even knowing how small he is.

After his parents supposed deaths and his uncle's house fire, Saijo became sensitive towards virtually anyone around him, rarely speaking unless absolutely necessary. He can also be quite stubborn, always ready for a fight and never be backing down from one. Though he prefers action, he would sometimes listen to others have to say, though rarely. Even when he thinks that no one is worth it, he would still listen to them to be completely rude.

After his marriage and some time after the time skip, His personality seems to be the same with some changes. He can be very compassionate when he wants, and even needs to be. He sympathizes those who have suffered just as much or even more than him.


Saijo was born in the Strife Family, a standard family with skills in inventing. He presumably thought that his mother died and his father deserted him when he was young. When he was still young, his uncle takes him in and teaches him the basics of the Legendary Fire and inventing magical items. When he just turned 12, he mastered Legendary Fire and has invented more magical items than his uncle. However, when he returned to his uncle's house, the house was in flames. He then trained for 6 years to prepare in finding his family.

At the age of 18, he joined a restaurant full of mages called Odd Jewels. Thanks to this he had to hold off his search for his family. During years in Odd Jewels, he meets and falls in love with Alice Hellblazer. When he turned 20 they got married and at 21 was given a daughter. One year after, he was still thinking of going back to searching, with serious thought and further convinced by his wife, he continues his search.

4 years after his departure from his new home, Saijo becomes a member of the Fairy Tail Guild, thinking that he would have a better chances in finding his family. He also was the founder and leader of Folk Team. He didn't do much but keep picking quests every time he completed one and keeps doing this till the death of one of his members. He cares for everyone in the guild but doesn't want them involved when his brother Alpha died. Thanks to that incident he dismissed the Team.

During the time skip, he reunited with his father, discovered that his uncle is working for Odd Jewels and the dark guild that killed his brother and kidnapped his mother is Demon Spade.

After the time skip, Saijo's appearance and personality change greatly. He took part in the S-Class Mage Promotion Trial twice but failed both times. He would even adoptive a young child, who would later recreate the Folk Team. After achieving enough money, Saijo bought a new home closer to the guild and reunite with his wife and daughter. He would later be founded by members of the Paths into becoming a Master in their order.
