    Zeref Dragneel is the older brother of Fairy Tail Wizard Natsu Dragneel. Due to a dragon attack when he was little Zeref's entire family died excluding himself.

    Zeref decided to join the Mildian Magic Academy and began to research the connections between Life, Death and Magic. However, due to his research going against the will of the god Ankhseram he was cursed with a magic that whenever he would hold any regard for life; everything around him would die and the more he held any regard for life; the larger the effect of the magic.

    In a desperate attempt to end his life, Zeref began creating demons in the hopes that one would be strong enough to beat him which he all housed in the book of E.N.D. His efforts lead to the creation of the ultimate demon which he believed was capable of defeating him, E.N.D.; Etherious Natsu Dragneel; which was made with the preserved body of his younger brother Natsu.
