Zeref (ゼレフ Zerefu) is considered to be the strongest, most friendly Mage of all time, who possesses extremely dangerous, and powerful Magic.
Despite being hundreds of years old, Zeref has the appearance of a young man. He wears high-collared black and tan robes with gold trim, along with a large, flowing white toga draped around his torso. He has short black hair, dark eyes, and abnormally sharp canines. He also wears a circle-shaped necklace.
- Living Magic: (生活魔法 Seikatsu Mahō): A very ancient, long-forgotten form of Magic that breathes life into an object. Some of Zeref's creations are sentient. Zeref can make summoning Demons for each wizard.
- Death Wave: This usage of this spell creates a dark wave that kills everything in the user's immediate vicinity.
- Immortality: Approximately 400 years ago, Zeref attained immortality.
- Enhanced Durability: Zeref is quite physically durable, as he was able to take a punch from Paul Gekko (no visible marks were left), and return to his feet, completely unfazed.
Like all of the Uchiha from the Uchiha Clan, Zeref possesses the Powerful Sharingan that allows him to freeze time for all except those he specifically chooses to remain mobile. After casting this Magic, the surrounding area and all those affected by the Magic appear inverted in color, whilst those unaffected remain as they are.

Enf of Creation ArcEdit
400 years ago, Zeref was born after the Shinseijū Era. At some point Zeref witnessed the deaths of many people. Around this time, he also became cursed, and unintentionally took the lives of all those around him. Asahi no Mikoto meets Zeref at the Shinju the Giant Tree. Because of this, Zeref was sealed away for centuries before letting Asahi give birth to Kokori no Mikoto and Kokiri no Mikoto. One day, however, he managed to set himself free in spite of the fact that not all the keys to his seal had been amassed. His inner darkness, on the other hand, remained sealed. Zeref was described as having alighted in an ancient land, mastered Black Magic, creating Mecha Paul.
Paul Gekko's Pokemon Zygarde collecting the keys to Zeref's seal that was inside Eight Treasure Chests in Yggdrasil Island. Zeref is then shocked to see Paul Gekko, saying that he has "grown". Shocked by the Dark Mage's words, Paul Gekko entered Tailed Beast Form to supress Zeref. Paul Gekko manages to bring the unconscious Zeref to Umigakure to be treated well by Lan. Paul Gekko spoke a question about Ancient History, Zeref at this point, stirs, speaking ("Kilik had completely regained his senses have Killed Chai Gekko"), and awakes. Zeref is then shocked to see Paul Gekko and Kilik saying that they are "pals" and apologizes to them for having a great burden. Paul Gekko forgives Zeref and became good friends. Zeref became a member of Heaven Tail.
In the Kingdom of Fiore in Earth Land, Zeref lays peacefully, asleep, on the ground. After Kaguya Ōtsutsuki's defeat, Zeref is then shocked to see the Ten Tails imprisoned inside the Pickle Jar. When night descends, Zeref meets Paul Skywalker and Utakata Uchiha.
