Chapter 104: Best Friend
Name: Lluvia Loxar
[TN: Okay, any better ideas on her surname? Katakana are "Rokusaa".]
Formerly a member of Phantom Lord's Element Four. After falling head over heels for Gray, she became interested in Fairy Tail, and after observing the Guild itself and seeing how much fun it looked, she decided to join up.
Not only can she use all kinds of water-based magic, she can even transform her own body into water. She used to be the absolute epitome of what one might call a "rain-woman", but it would seem that she's not any more.
With a new hairstyle and a new outfit, she's trying to integrate herself into Fairy Tail as quickly as she can, but a lot of people are actually pretty scared of her.
[insert text right: From now on, Lluvia will take care of her skin with a parasol~!♡]
[insert text left: Lluvia is a "rain-woman" no more!]
[box: Weekly Sorcerer Magazine, on sale every Wednesday! // A specialist magazine, popular for its articles on new magical products, the hottest guilds, and pin-up photos of beautiful mage girls. // You know, Mira-san has modelled for this magazine any number of times. // They asked me to model for them once, too, but thanks to Natsu and the others, that idea went to hell pretty quickly.........]
