Attila Fotron アッティラ・フォトロン, Attira Fotoron), born Etzel (エゼル, Ezeru), is a Rune Knight working under the Magic Council of Fiore in hopes of preventing the rising threat of Dark Guilds as she keeps balance and order throughout Ishgar, proclaiming herself as a "warrior of justice" (正義の武者, Seigi no Musha). She is a First Generation Dragon Slayer who was mysteriously transported to Bardo and trained in Azure Dragon Slayer Magic by the Spirit Flame Dragon, Shénlóng. However through a series of tragic events, Bardo was plunged into civil war between spirits. Despite the desire to stay and aid Shénlóng in defending their home, Attila was transported to Earth Land to ensure her survivalーprotecting her from being caught in the crossfire of war. Determined to return to Bardo, Attila immediately began to travel across Ishgar as she searched for a way back home. Throughout her journey, Attila was referred as the Flame of Judgement (鑑定の炎, Kantei no Honō) as she inadvertently took down several Dark Guilds who stood in the way of her goal.
Traveling for several months in search of potential leads, Attila ended up at Ryōzanpaku (梁山泊, Place of Assemblage for the Bold and Ambitious)ーa dojo consisting of legendary martial artists who could supposedly enter a "spiritual world" (霊界, Reikai). Believing this was her last lead regarding Bardo, she attempted to beat the information out of Lei Cheng. Losing unsurprisingly, Attila was informed that the "imperial gate" (御門, Mikado) would not be accessible until the year X789. Seeing as she didn't want to stand around until then, she requested to learn marital arts at the dojo in order to better herself. Seeing the depths of her soul which displayed her kind nature and selflessness, Lei agreed to train her to the best of his abilities. After five years of rigorous training, Attila had learnt all she possibly could from the master and was given the task of venturing across Earth Land in order to acquire combat experience.
As she continued to venture across Ishgar, Attila eventually met a young Genghis Breningoch who had yet to be influenced by Dealok. Feeling obligated to aid in the growth of a fellow Dragon Slayer, Attila decided to act as Genghis' mentorーteaching him about the history of Dragon Slayer Magic. As they traveled together, they formed a sibling relationship and even acquired a reputation as the Orchid Dragons due to a Unison Raid which was able to destroy a Dark Guild. Attila was specifically known under the moniker Qīng Lóng (
