Hello everyone I'm new and I've been itching to get this theory out there about one of Fairy Tail's strongest mages, Mist Gun. Now this is not fact this is only my prediction, to how Mist Gun ended up the way he is now. Here's the story: when Mist Gun was a little boy his father a former mage of Fairy Tail would tell him and all his childhood friends about the guild F.T. and all the adventures they had and how they worked together. His father's stories inspired Mist Gun and his friends, and so they all made a pact to someday all become mages of F.T. However, one day M.G. wondered away from his village to gather a present for his father's birthday. But, when he returned his village was burnt to the ground he rushed to his home and found the dead bodies of all his friends and his father just hanging onto life. M.G. held his father in his arms and was told that a dark guild had attacked and taken no prisoners, his father then told him to push forward with his dream of F.T. So after that M.G. went off on his own and trained his body, his mind, and his magic to no end. Then finally after all those years of training he appeared before the Master of F.T. and he was accepted when he mentioned his father. So M.G. made quite a name for himself in F.T. but he kept himself distant from all the members because he was afraid that if he built those bonds again they would be taken away from him and he would be powerless to prevent it. However, he would never forgive anyone who tried to destroy F.T. as shown in the war against Phantom Lord. That's why M.G. distances himself from everyone, but maybe one day he will wake up and see that he isn't powerless anymore and can protect his bonds with F.T. Well that's my background story for M.G. if you have any comments or concerns or even theories of your own just post it. Thank you all for your support!!!
A nice guess, but...er..like Gray's and Erza's childehood mixed
so I don't think so @_@
i think the majority of fairy tail are orphans( erza, gray, natsu, gazille, lucy might as well have been) and the rest seems like they got bullied (luvia, and with luxus get angry when making fun of attitude i wouldnt be suprise if he was too) Misty prolly has a back ground some what similar to that, having no parent would be kind of normal. getting bullied could make him shy ... or maybe he just was born that way, there people like that in the real world. An other thing i was thinking is he might be a bit autistic,since he is drapped from toes to head, is anti social and seem to be smart in that chapter with the apple.
that sounds cliche and unreal to me.
I guess we wont know til later...
I bet His magic is Illusions and messing with the mind...
cuz dude... he took out 47 subguilds by himself.
musta been some nice AoE magic.
and also, cuz he can put ppl to sleep
Just reposting my theory
Anyway, the tattoo thing is interesting. I don't think Mistgun would "edit" his tattoo, otherwise, he'd pretty much "edit" his face.
So yeah, I'm betting on Mashima making a mistake, the staff indeed was too much of an hint (and Gerard was too busy at the Tower anyway).
Re posting my theory:
Mistgun said "he knew who Gérard was but that he wasn't him". As i wrote that almost instantly indicates that they never where the same person but if that is the case then why did Mistgun call himself as Gérard? The only way have to be that Mistgun is a clone of Gérard and that this Anima project made them share one soul so that they knew what the other was doing so at the time little Mistgun said Anima was also the time Gérard became evil. Remember that little mistgun left Wendy because she would be in danger if she stayed with him.

Did anybody considered them being a twins?
Twins are 'known' to posess some kind of spiritual links, so Mystogun could feel what happens to Gerard, feel a bit like him (so he cares a lot about Erza)?
Seems a little too easy...
Yeah, being twins seems too much easy and boring for such intense and mysterious characters.
Anyway, to Ero-Sanji, I already answered your point about "I know Gerard but I'm not him". I think that this is another hint that they splitted, but oh well, you can find it in the quote I posted anyway.
And I answered you, saying that the line isn't used by someone that has been splitted apart. Think about it if it as you stated then they were the same at one point. What you're saying is that he's still a part of Gérard and I'm against it because of that one sentence. Anyway that's not the heavy point in my theory instead the connection is what's fascinating to me. The way they know each others information kinda like if they shared the same soul. The part of the actual splitting has already been used in the form of Sieglein and I would detest the same thing happening again.
EDIT: I'll try to reform my theory:
Dark magicians(grimoire leader, Ivan and Blaine to name but a few) experiments on things and children(Gérard, Luxus and perhaps Urtear). The Anima project with Gérard as the test subject went successful they managed to make a clone or fuse the twin brothers genes together making one soul with two bodies. All the projects get stopped by someone, Luxus's by Makarov disbanding Ivan and taking care of Luxus.
Two boys wanders of the other ending up as a slave, Gérard and the other taking care on a little girl while also being on a quest for something perhaps his identity, Mistgun (or he could also have been called Gérard). The little girl Wendy asks for the boys name and the only name he could come up with was Gérard thanks to the Anima magic. The slave boy gets evil and the latter boy using the same connection founds out about that too leaving the little girl in safety since his own face was a danger to the world.
Since Luxus was an experiment himself and the fact that he still has/d a contact with his father he knew about the Anima project. Remember how he said "you're another..." to Mistgun could he have refered to him being another clone of Gérard in the same way Sieglein was or the fact that Mistgun was another experiment. Either way it freaked Mistgun out indicating that Mistgun is very cautious about his identity since his face is a face of crime and evilness.

That could be possible, and that would be interesting indeed. Now I like both theories
Even if a point is flawed -> Raven Tail is independant, so I kind of doubt Ivan worked as a spy or an inside-man for Grimoire Heart when he was still in FT.
But no, no, he wasn't a spy for Grimoire heart it was some independent works by "random" dark magicians who later on managed to make their own guilds. Now you made me think about it even more
What if Ivan f*ucked up and that's why the others are still together while he's outside perhaps even hiding. And by "f*ucked up" I mean getting busted by his own father.
His mind is also pretty fucked up, which could be the reason of him being alone. Even Urtear isn't as creepy as he is.
I like Ero-Sanji's theory the best so far. It explains a lot, except one thing. Why would Mistgun care so much about hiding his identity from Erza, or everything that has to do with Anima itself? He could probably use magic to hide change his face if he really wanted to, like how Mirajane can.
He could easily tell Erza everything she wants to know about Gerard since they have some sort of connection, and who knows what else he can do with all the information in his head.
In this flashback, the tattoo does seem to be the exact same one we have seen so far on all Gerard versions, including the one seen in Wendy's flashback, (the one with the staff ).
