How Zancrow joined the Tourney
Zancrow was raised by Hades alongside six other Mages to learn a particular form of Ancient Spell, with Zancrow learning how to perform God Slayer Magic. One of these other Mages, Meredy, was found by Zancrow, Ultear, and Kain in a city they were destroying. Zancrow was opposed to letting Meredy join the team, stating that they had orders to exterminate all the city's residents to obtain one of the keys to resurrecting Zeref. However, he relented when Ultear noticed the great amount of magical potential from the girl.
Searching for a host hoping to resurrect Zeref, Zancrow checks downtown New York for a potential candidate. He soon believes a humanoid turtle named Donatello to be the chosen one.
