Galuna Island Arc

Lyon Bastia makes his first appearance as a mysterious man who wears a ram like helmet in armor. He conceals his appearance from Natsu and his teammates until he counters Gray Fullbuster on top of the pyramid during the Moon Drip ritual. First, Lyon freezes Natsu's body, and Gray, who wants to fight Lyon, kicks Natsu down the hill. When Gray ask why Lyon is doing this, Lyon replies that Gray is shameless because he killed Ur. When Gray challenges Lyon, Lyon fights Gray. During his battle, Lyon debates with Gray on how ice make magic should be and Lyon tells Gray that he killed his one dream to surpass Ur. Lyon explains his goal to Gray and that he will melt Deliora and defeat Deliora. When Gray tells Lyon that his goal is impossible, Lyon snaps and attacks Gray brutally. Lyon blames Gray for challenging Deliora which cause his teacher to die, and Lyon unleashes a devastating attack, a unnamed ice make dragon, on Gray. Lyon sends Gray all the way down the pyramid.

After his battle with Gray, Lyon talks to the masked man, Zalty/ Ultear, and ask about Deliora's status. Also, Lyon has Toby apologizing to him for his failure to defeat Natsu. Suddenly, Lyon feels the pyramid tilting due to Natsu's plan to destroy the pyramid. The angered Lyon finds Natsu who is below Lyon several floors down. Natsu charges at Lyon by using his fire as rockets. Lyon and Natsu have their battle, and Lyon notices Natsu's unpredictable fighting style as he fights Natsu. A few more moments, Gray smashes through Lyon's ice wall, and Lyon sees Gray for the second time. Lyon hears Gray's story as Gray admits it is his fault for killing Ur ten years ago. However, Gray tells Lyon that his actions to melt Deliora, destroying Ur's legacy, and hurting his friends are terrible and irresponsible. Then Lyon sees Gray adjust his stance which looks like Ur's Iced Shell and Lyon has a fearful look on his face. Until Natsu smacks Gray in the face, Lyon watches as Natsu and Gray have their "conversation" about death is running away, and Gray finally settles things with Natsu. As soon as Natsu leaves to pursue the masked man, Lyon and Gray resume their battle. Gray explains to Lyon that Ur is alive and he is actually melting Ur, and his promise with Ur which is not to tell Lyon. As Gray finishes explaining to Lyon that Ur wants Lyon and Gray to be happy with their lives and not to waste their life to restore herself, Lyon quickly attacks Gray by placing an ice make sword through Gray's abdomen (anime: a unnamed ice panther/big cat). Lyon with a dirty look explains that he already knew and that Ur's body is nothing but scrap heaps of ice.

When Gray hears Deliora is in Brago, Gray rushes out to attack Deliora, but he has put harm on himself, Ur, and Lyon. Lyon decides to use a forbidden technique, Iced Shell, which he learns without Ur's permission. However, Ur knocks Lyon out and she sacrifices herself by using Iced Shell. Lyon finds out it is Gray's fault for killing his teacher and his dreams to surpass Ur. This is why Lyon melts Deliora with Moon Drip to prove his self-worth.

Powers & Abilities

Ice Make Magic

Lyon's Magic Seal
Lyon's Magic Seal

Lyon's ice make magic is a type of creation magic that allows Lyon to create ice into any form. Also, Lyon's ice make style is different from Gray because Lyon creates moving animals out of ice (Dynamic Ice Make) while Gray creates weapons and objects out of ice (Static Ice Make). It does not mean Lyon always uses Dynamic Ice Make because he is seen using ice make weapons like Gray. Another difference between Gray and Lyon is how they create the ice. Lyon can use one hand or two hands while Gray can only use two hands. The problem with one hand is that the ice make magic becomes unbalanced and imperfect.
