"To men of death, the black robes of darkness and shadows cover the blood of the victims...they walk into the darkness holding the ones they've killed."
Ryu Sakyo

Shadow Hunters







To kill all the magic users in the world.

The Shadow Hunters (シャドウハンター Shadouhantā) was an cult organization of deadly assassins that specialize in the arts of assassination till all where wiped out millennium years ago by the First Wizard. With unknown information it's nearly impossible to label them as anything. They were brought back centuries later by Ryu Sakyo and were defeated for the final time by every guild in Fiore.


"Robes dark as the night sky, red clouds to show that they will never be chased and hands of death with them."
— Ancient description.

The Shadow Hunters have been around for so long that it's unknown when the organization was first formed only knowing they appeared long before Zeref was born. Story's tell of assassins creating chaos around the world but soon where stopped by the First Wizard. Years went by as the Shadow Hunters stopped there rampage and soon died off one by one.

The philosophy goal was to kill all magic users. They feared that magic creates chaos and without it there would be balance in power to the world. However it was then revealed by Ryu that the true purpose of the organization was helping him track down Hōgyoku Keepers and to destroy magic users guilds.

The Chosen Ones as Shadow Hunters
Over the course of many decades, Shadow Hunters took different forms and was led by different individuals. It's never known how many members there are in the organization. All members of the Shadow Hunters wore a pair of Robes of Death (even leaders) that were long, black robes with red clouds, a red interior, and a chin-high collar. The red clouds symbolizing to show that they will never be chased by anyone or thing. The black robes represented the darkness and shadows as the night sky as the ancient description stated they did all of there killing at night.

The robes are very distinctive, allowing members to be identified even from a distance. It's never known why the Shadow Hunters symbol is never on the robes.
