Theory - Found the name Serena in a 400 year old poem called “The Faerie Queen”
THIS ALL STARTED BECAUSE OF A POST.
The post I’m talking about said that Lucy and Dimaria were very similar and it suggested that Dimaria might in fact be Layla.
There had been other posted that also suggested that Yuri Dreyar was God Serena.
So, out of curiosity, I went to search for the meaning of Dimaria but couldn’t find much. But then I searched for “Serena” and this appeared:
Wait? A poem named “The Faerie Queen”? (Published almost 425 years ago? Which is about the same age as Zeref)
The Faerie Queene Summary:
The Faerie Queene tells the stories of several knights, each representing a particular virtue, on their quests for the Faerie Queene, Gloriana. Redcrosse is the knight of Holiness, and must defeat both theological error and the dragon of deception to free the parents of Una (“truth”). Guyon is the knight of Temperance, who must destroy the fleshly temptations of Acrasia’s Bower of Bliss. Britomart, a woman in disguise as a male knight, represents Chastity; she must find her beloved and win his heart. Artegall, the knight of Justice, must rescue the lady Eirene from an unjust bondage. Cambell and Triamond, the knights of Friendship, must aid one another in defense of various ladies’ honor. Finally, Calidore, the knight of Courtesy, must stop the Blatant Beast from spreading its slanderous venom throughout the realm.
I needed to investigate further! So I went on and did a search on the poem and this is what I got.
Ok, so the author said in a letter that this poem was planned to have 24 four books. 12 of them would be about individuals and each of them would represent a “private virtue”. The other 12 would be about King Arthur’s 12 “public virtues”.
It also states that King Arthur represents the virtue of Magnificence and the Faerie Queen represents Glory.
SO: We have 12 individuals where each one is a virtue - Fairy Tail Team A+B (Natsu, Lucy, Erza, Gray, Wendy, Gajeel, Levy, Juvia, Elfman, Mira, Lisanna, Cana) And then 12 representations of King Arthur = Zeref –» Spriggan 12
I went a little deeper to find out more about these character to see if any of them fit the profile and this was the result:
-The central hero of the poem, although he does not play the
most significant role in its action. Arthur is in search of
the Faerie Queene, whom he saw in a vision. The “real”
Arthur was a king of the Britons in the 5th or 6th century
A.D., but the little historical information we have about
him is overwhelmed by his legend.
Zeref is in search for Lumen Histoire/Fairy Heart/Mavis/Fairy Queen
Faerie Queene (also known as Gloriana)
-Though she never appears in the poem, the Faerie Queene is
the focus of the poem; her castle is the ultimate goal or
destination of many of the poem’s characters. –» Lumen Histoire/Fairy Heart/Mavis/Fairy Queen
Lumen Histoire is the ultimate goal.
- The Redcrosse Knight is the hero of Book I; he stands for the
virtue of Holiness. His real name is discovered to be
George, and he ends up becoming St. George, the patron
saint of England. On another level, though, he is the
individual Christian fighting against evil, fighting and defeating a dragon. St. George was a 3rd-century Roman soldier from Palestine who was martyred
during the persecutions of emperor Diocletian. Later legends describe
his defeat of a dragon, with which he was often depicted in medieval
I’m guessing Natsu Dragneel.
The Dragon:I t’s the dragon’s belief that he’ll easily defeat Redcrosse that
ultimately spells his doom. Underestimating Redcrosse’s resilience, the
dragon ends up being blindsided by Redcrosse multiple times. Therefore,
the dragon partially represents the danger of overconfidence and of
assessing your own abilities to highly. —» Acnologia?
-She travels with the Redcross Knight (who represents England), whom she has recruited to save her parents’ castle from a dragon. Redcrosse’s future wife, and the other major protagonist in
Book I, she is meek, humble, and beautiful, but strong
when it is necessary; she represents Truth, which Redcrosse
must find in order to be a true Christian.
Lucy Heartfilia, perhaps? Not sure since she’s not listed as a hero of the books.
END OF BOOK I: Redcrosse’s recovery by falling into the Well of Life represents
Baptism, while the healing given by the Tree of Life. The defeat of the dragon frees Una’s parents and their subjects to
celebrate, and frees Una and Redcrosse to be betrothed. Redcrosse has
one higher calling, however, in his duty to the Faerie Queene. Una has
no difficulty with the wait, for she sees Gloriana as
the great sovereign without equal; beside her, all other claims fall to
-The hero of Book III, the female warrior virgin, who
represents Chastity. She is a skilled fighter and strong
of heart, with an amazing capacity for calm thought in
troublesome circumstances. Of course, she is chaste, but
she also desires true Christian love.
Artegal - The hero of Book V, throughout the book, Arthegall travels around Faerie Land offering
his insights into justice as a way to resolve conflicts. While Arthegall
seems to represent the judgment and intellectual aspect of
justice—figuring out what a just resolution to a given situation might
be—his sidekick Talus is the enacting and punishing aspect of
justice. So in many ways, we can see Arthegall as embodying the
positive side of justice while Talus has to represents its nitty-gritty,
less than pretty side. Talus, an “iron man” who helps Arthegall to dispense justice and mercilessly pursue and kill any number of
villains. Gajeel Redfox? This duo can represent both sides of Gajeel that we’ve already seen, Talus representing is gruff side and Artegal the development of his sense of justice (He joined the Magic Council).
This poem as another bunch of characters, the list is big and some of them are hard to interpret since there isn’t that much information. The poem is also not finished because the author died after the 6th book.
Maybe this is just a coincidence since I found out that what brought me to this poem, the name Serena, is a character that has nothing to do with God Serena. So maybe I just wasted 3 hours of my life! But hey, at least I exercised my brain. Thanks for reading!
