I said they have a main magic typ, most of the mages learn it, some are possibly gifted with it or MAYBE born with it. For example the dragonslayers.
As with any proffession you got specialists, maybe its best to take millitary proffesions as example.
You got a medic, specialized in healing, tho he can shoot a gun and underwent basic training. But he will never be as good a shot as say, a sniper who specializes in long distance shots.
However i do think but am not sure that dragonslayers are either born with their ability (thus they are actualy human form dragons). Or they are implanted with a dragonpart. In wich case the difference between the lachrima dragonslayer and the real dragonslayer is only in the fact that the real one has a real dragon part and the lachrima ones got lachrimas that mimic a dragon.
As for Layla and Lucy well its obvious that they both are celestial mages not due to being born with it but perhaps like with most talents, wich might be seen as an aditional factor. Most people are good at the same things as 1 or either parent but its not a given ofc. Since some are and some arnt.
For example Cana and Gildarts are related but Cana is factualy a lesser gifted mage + uses a totaly different magic typ.
the 3 siblings Mira,Lissana,Elfman all use transformation magic. I supose its a talent due to their parents.
So many factors contribute to determin typ and skill of the mage.
anywho natsu as i said could use transformation magic, Lucy seems to be able to use some kind of celestial spells or light spells...
so far we've got all connections
Natsu-Gajeel-Wendy-Lucy and have you noticed all the 7?
777 - a very mysterious year where Layla and dragons are gone
7 years ago layla died
in the year (you guessed right)777!
and the dragons were gone on the date 7/7/777 in which we suspect Layla died (or whatnot) too!
7 kin of purgatory i dont think this he will use though :/
Also just watched edolas ep 77
Charle said wendy and natsu survived the edolas trip because they had special powers as DS but Lucy also survived (Gray and Erza were revived if i remember well) so i think we got a confirmation she's special xD ie if im correct which makes it fishy once again!

Btw all her spirits can freely show up
I think those 3 got a lot to explain to Lucy and somehow they are actualy withholding information. Certainly cause Lucy is clueless about the pact Layla made with the 3 mages that had the 3 keys.
She always seems so sad though when she mentions her mom her face is always drawn very sad and pained, i dont think lucy know why her mum died (which is prob dragon and/or zeref) but maybe she was present and cannot understand why or knows some vague infoQuote:
just a crazy idea...what if layla and zoldeo belonged to the same guild in the past?
@Ravedragon: Yeah, I used to think that Layla would belong to a good guild but so far, no one from fairy tail and blue pegasus recognised her despite the striking resemblance between layla and lucy. There are other guilds such as lamier scale but since not much attention was given to them, I don't think she's from any of them. Secondly, I do agree Layla is a nice person but being nice doesn't mean you can't come from a dark guild. She could be a good person who unfortunately ended up working for evil forces.
So that pretty much narrows to the last remaining well-known good guild(I forgot the name), evil guild such as tartaros ( I don't think it's raven tail) or the council.
Note that Layla didn't seem to reveal her mage life entirely to Lucy...why is she so shady with her past? unless she was from a dark guild.
The only thing that I have no inkling of is her connection to the dragons(if there's any-but I'm assuming there is because it'd be such an anti-climax if everything is a coincidence.)
it may be she was orphaned and used but a kind hearted person who ran away and such, or maybe she had a change of heart or was never truly 'evil'
it also could be that Makarov told the older members (as the younger ones dont know her for sure seeing as she left 20 years ago) to not say anything? just a guess, but Makarov seemed protective of Lucy and she was still new (phantom arc) but then again FT people seem to warm up to people fast xD
I also wanna see porylusca meeting Lucy, dont think they meet yet, might be interesting haha imagine Layla is the only human she liked and thus she likes Lucy.
there are theories that Layla wasnt human too but i doubt them, i think she was just a very powerful mage xD maybe she was the celestial/light/? dragon slayer or something explaining er connection to the dragons
would love to see a Layla chapter on her past in whatever guild she was would be rather interesting maybe when Lucy meets up the other two who gave her the keys of Aquarius and Cancer
Ok Just To clear Thing Up about layla's past
Layla Heartfilia was a Celestial Spirit Mage who worked on the merchant's guild, "Love & Lucky" (that is her guild) where she met and fell in love with Jude Heartfilia. Layla became pregnant with Lucy. Lucys Magic Involves Celestial Spirit Magic, Unison Raid, Uranometria Ush,i no Koku Mairi, so guess she dose have alot of powers and lucy seams like the strongest Celestial Spirit Mage because she can like summon like 9 spirits at a time. so LUCY IS NOT WEAK and i really dont think that layla is a dragon slayer but i do believe she is connected with them thats what i think if wrong do tell (soz if spelt anything wrong)
