Cappy (シャルハッピ Sharuhapi) is a semi-canon pair between Fairy Tail Mages and Exceeds, Happy and Carla.
About Happy and CarlaEdit
Happy (ハッピー Happī) is an Exceed from Extalia, a member of the Fairy Tail Guild and of Team Natsu, and one of the main protagonists of the story.
Happy is a small blue Exceed with a white underbelly. He has a rectangular head, with pink ears, big black eyes with small, thin eyebrows, and light blue cheek marks near to his tiny whiskers (two on each side of his face). Happy has a triangular nose that leads to semi-round upper lips on the sides. Happy's body is rectangular too, and being an Exceed, it has a structure that allows him to walk erect unlike normal cats. Despite having no thumbs, Happy is able to hold things. He has a long, white-tipped tail; and the other parts of his tail are blue. Additionally, Happy is able to use his tail to hold onto objects. Happy is usually seen carrying around a green backpack, where he keeps food and items that can be used in battle. This backpack also covers his green Guild Mark that is on his back. When using his Magic, he can grow a pair of large, feathered, angel-like wings that allow him to fly around and carry others. Happy usually does not wear clothes, the only few times were during the Fantasia Parade, to disguise himself in Edolas, and when his parents gave him clothes.
Despite his small stature and eccentric appearance, Happy is very loyal to his teammates and fellow guild members and has a fairly significant amount of knowledge of the Magic world, in some cases, more than Lucy and Natsu. Given that he was around Natsu Dragneel since his birth, Happy often emulates Natsu in his actions and responses. He is quick-witted and cheeky, especially to Lucy Heartfilia; however, Happy sometimes shows little bits of a darker nature, especially when making a comment on the devastating aspects of the Magic of his comrades.
He loves fish and he doesn't like dogs (except for Plue). He offers a comic relief with his catchphrase, "Aye!". He holds a strange attraction to Exceed like himself and drools on Loke's shoulder when he finds out that Loke is a lion. Happy has also developed a strong affection towards Carla, another Exceed who at first blows him off, but then begins to respect him.
Carla (シャルル Sharuru) is an Exceed, the daughter of Queen Shagotte, and a close companion of Wendy Marvell. She and Wendy belonged to Cait Shelter Guild before joining Fairy Tail.
Carla is a small, white Exceed with pink ears and brown eyes, which are smaller than Happy's eyes. She also has two whiskers on each side of her face. Carla wears a pink bow near the end of her tail. Carla's usual top consists of a mustard yellow and pink top with a pink bow tie. She wears a pink skirt with this top. Carla, like the other characters, seems to switch outfits every arc. When Carla uses Magic, she sprouts two angelic-like wings to fly. Her pink Guild Mark is located on her back.
Unlike the carefree Happy, Carla is very strict and serious most of the time, rarely showing emotions. She cares about Wendy like a mother. She was at first very aloof, turning her nose up at seemingly everyone save for Wendy. She also tries to get Wendy to shy away from her timid personality, scolding her often for it (which is ironic considering she's not very sociable herself).
As she learns about her mission as an Exceed, she is shocked and sad. She displayed a troubled look when she thought about her mission, later revealed to be a prophecy involving Extalia's demise due to her ability to see the future which she inherited from her mother.
Happy instantly took a liking to her from the moment they met, but she at first despises him. Later, when they learn the "truth" of the mission he defends her by saying they are Mages of Fairy Tail, not puppets and she starts accepting him after seeing his determination to save their friends as well as from seeing him showing a more serious and brave side, having earlier she referred to him as male cat and ignored his gifts in form of fish. Happy saved Carla when they escaped and she almost fell out of a wagon and she in turn saved him from the Edolas Royal Army soldiers by taking a direct blast aimed for him. She also has no doubts and extreme confidence when Happy flies off on his own. When Lily was mentioned as being the strongest out of their group, she put up a smirk and tempted Happy into having a match against him. Recently, she has been shown to smile more, usually with Happy near by, danced with him when he asked, and even laughed when Happy pointed out Lily's cute side.
Her Guild Card also explains that she likes Darjeeling Tea and doesn't like tomcats.
Years ago, before Happy and Carla were born, one hundred exceeds eggs were taken from their parents to and sent to Earth Land on a mission to obliterate the Dragon Slayers, although they were actually sent to Earth Land to escape a future disaster in Edolas. Happy was taken away from his parents, Lucky and Marl, while Carla was taken away from the queen of Extalia, Shagotte.
Natsu found Happy's egg in the East Forest of Magnolia Town in a tree. Natsu then took it back to the guild where he and Lisanna raised it together everyday. One night Elfman took it to keep it warm and the next day when he brought it back, it began to hatch and out popped a cat with a pair of wings. Happy's first word was Aye. Natsu gave him the name Happy after Lisanna pointed out the change of the atmosphere from anger to happiness after Happy hatched from the egg. Despite everyone else seeing him as a cat, Natsu thought he was a dragon.
Carla's home world also is Edolas, kingdom of Extalia, and she's one of the Exceeds. While in her egg, Carla's power of precognition activated. She mistakenly believed she had a mission to go to Earth Land to kill a Dragon Slayer. In actuality, the discussion she heard was a lie to the people of Edolas, to cover up the Queen's plan to save the Exceed race, as she knew Extalia would be destroyed. Sometime before the start of the series before Carla was born, she was taken away from her mother, Queen Shagotte, to be sent through the Anima to escape a future disaster. One day Wendy found her egg, and when she was born she saw visions involving the Royal Army of Edolas. Since her birth, she kept on believing she was sent to kill Wendy.
Carla is Happy's love interest. Happy first met Carla at Master Bob's Palace during the first assembly of the alliance assigned to defeat the members of Oración Seis and immediately fell in love with the female cat as he even asked Lucy to give her a fish from him. Carla, however, ignored him despite Happy's attempts to impress her. This attitude continued even after Carla's joining of Fairy Tail and even worsened as she began to be hostile towards Happy, telling him to not hang around her. Carla's hostility is later revealed to have rooted from her and Happy being from another world, Edolas and with Happy not knowing anything about it.
The two later went to Edolas with Natsu and Wendy in order to save their guild mates and the townspeople of Magnolia and were subsequently returned to Extalia, their homeland where they were informed about the true nature of their mission. Though horrified, Happy stood up for him and Carla, telling their kinsmen, the Exceeds, that they are not their puppets and that they are Mages of Fairy Tail. Hearing Happy's words gave Carla some hope and even prompted her to call Happy by his name for the first time.
The two later returned to Earth Land with their friends and Carla began to be friendly towards Happy, encouraging him to not give up before trying while Natsu and Gajeel were forcing him to fight Pantherlily and even accepted his invitation to dance with him. Happy considers Carla as one of his friends and deeply cares for her as seen when he was on the verge of tears when she was injured while strolling with Wendy prior to the start of the Grand Magic Games.
Oraciòn Seis ArcEdit
Carla is introduced no sooner then after Wendy at the alliance between Fairy Tail, Lamia Scale, Blue Pegasus, and Cait Shelter. She does most of the talking for the two, imploring to the alliance that Wendy is powerful despite her appearance. After the matter settled, the group discuss who the Oración Seis are and their plan to stop them, then headed off to find them, with Carla dragging a hesitant Wendy along. When the alliance unexpectedly find their target, she stays with Wendy and Happy as the three watch the others fight and get trounced by the Oración Seis. When Brain spots Wendy and grabs her, Wendy tries to reach for Carla but grabs Happy by mistake as the two are kidnapped. After being saved from death by Jura and Ichiya, the group notice Erza been poisoned causing the members to argue among themselves on how to handle the situation. Carla however is the one to calm everyone down, revealing that Wendy is the Sky Dragon Slayer and her healing Magic could fix the problem. But to rescue her the group has to work together to achieve their goal. The others agree and rally together before splitting up to find their kidnapped comrades.
Soon Carla, Gray and Natsu reach a cave entrance to the Oración Seis base, but come into confrontation with Racer. Gray holds him off while Natsu and Carla enter the cave to look for their friends.They find them but also see that Wendy has resurrected Jellal as well much to Carla's shock that Wendy used her Magic so rashly. Wendy faints from overexertion and Jellal leave the cave after knocking down Natsu and Brain. When Natsu recovers and tries to go after Jellal. Carla roughly reminds him of saving Erza first which he grudgingly agrees to. The two leave the cave with Happy and Wendy in tow but are knocked out of the air by Racer when he spots them during his battle with Gray. Carla and Happy are both knocked out from the fall, forcing Natsu to grab them both and run while Gray continues hold off Racer.
After the defeat of Zero by Natsu and the crumbling of Nirvana, Rune Knights came and saying Jellal and Hoteye must be imprisoned. Happy, Carla and along the others, tries to fight off the Rune Knights, but fails as Lahar came suddenly. Minutes passed, Jellal and Hoteye is imprisoned, leaving Happy, Carla and others with a lonely face.

Carla stays by Wendy as she chooses a job to do. After Wendy hears about a person who is rumored to have seen a dragon, Carla accompanies Wendy, Natsu, and Happy on the mission to find her.
When they arrive, the inn Gray directed them to is completely empty. After searching around, they find a door leading to Daphne. She comes out, greeting them very enthusiastically, as she tries to sell her diet product, Metamo. When she finally quiets down, and is told why Wendy and Natsu are here, she confesses she made the lie about her seeing a dragon up to help sales. Angered, the gang tries to leave, but is trapped in the room by Daphne's Concealment Magic. Gray soon appears, revealing he was conspiring with Daphne. He then challenges Natsu to a battle to settle everything once and for all.
As they watch the fight, Carla brings up the question to whether the man before them is the real Gray, but after he strips, their doubts are cleared. As Natsu and Gray fight around the inn, Happy, Wendy, and Carla try to keep track of them. Daphne also follows them, and explains that the inn they are trapped inside is merely an illusion and doesn't actually exist. From the windows, Daphne shows them group Erza and Lucy, who came upon the inn searching for all of them. They watch as they struggle against Daphne's artificial lifeforms, Lizardmen.
After the battle between Natsu and Gray ends, Gray traps Natsu by his feet, allowing Daphne to trap him in her spell. From there, she uses Natsu's Magical Power to fuel another one of her inventions, the Dragonoid. Wendy, Carla, and Happy are able to fly out of the inn after its rise, and explain the situation to Erza and Lucy, including Gray's betrayal.
After Daphne reveals her lifelong ambition of creating an artificial dragon, Wakaba, Macao and Elfman soon arrive. Elfman is able to knock out Gray, but the situation worsens when the Dragonoid takes flight to Magnolia. Erza says she will stop the Dragonoid, and that everyone else should mobilize at camp.
The group eventually arrives at Magnolia, and mobilizes with Fairy Tail in Magnolia Town to fight the Dragonoid. Wendy finds the cake shop owner, injured on the ground. She heals him, but faints shortly after. Carla gets worried, but still sticks by Fairy Tail as they fight of Lizardmen. Eventually, the guild defeats the Dragonoid, as well as the rest of the Lizardmen. She celebrates with the guild afterwards.
After Nirvana is defeated, Carla joins Fairy Tail along with Wendy. When Wendy asks her how she likes the guild, she seems unimpressed. Carla begins showing open hostility to Happy when he tries again to offer her a fish, to which she responds that she doesn't like fish and he should leave her alone.She runs outside, and Happy follows her to find out what he did. She tells him that he didn't do anything wrong, but that he can't protect Natsu like she protects Wendy. She says that Happy doesn't even know what he is.
Wendy is too late, and the town disappears. Carla finds Wendy just after she finds Natsu safe. There, she explains to them and Happy that the King of Edolas is using the hyper-dimensional Anima spell to bring all the Magic of Magnolia to the dried-up world of Edolas. She reveals that both her and Happy are from there, and were born on Earth Land with a mission already in their bones. However, she does not reveal what it is.
After spending a bit of time at the Edolas Fairy Tail, Carla realizes that it is not the same guild as the Earth Land Fairy Tail, but rather an alternate version of it. She deduces that the Earth Land Fairy Tail is probably in the Royal City. The group travels to the location and surprisingly finds Lucy, who apparently still has access to all her Celestial Spirits. The Earth Land Mages see that a gigantic lacrima crystal in the city that contains everyone's essence and Magic is under heavy guard and there is nothing they can do.
Carla puts forward a plan where the Mages will travel through an abandoned coal mine to the royal bed chamber and use Gemini to copy the kings knowledge of the giant lacrima and how to release their friends safely. As they begin their mission, they are ambushed by the Edolas version of Erza, Erza Knightwalker. Then, much to everyone's shock, all the soldiers bow to Happy and Carla and call them the Exceeds, congratulating them on leading the Mages into the trap. After Natsu convinces her to bring them to Edolas to save everyone, she makes them promise not to ask her more about the mission, not to ask her to be a guide, and to kill her and Happy if there is a chance of them betraying Natsu and Wendy.Before anyone can ask any more, she flies Wendy to Edolas through the leftover Anima spell, her wings enabling her to do so. Happy follows with Natsu and they make it through, flying over the bizarre world.
Carla and Happy meet up with other Exceeds and learn of their true mission. They were originally sent to kill Dragon Slayers but at the last minute, their mission was changed to capturing the dragon slayers for their unique Magical energy. Realizing she completed her mission even though she did not intentionally want to, she breaks down in tears for what she has done. Just as she was about to lose faith, Happy stands up for her. He explains they are nobody's puppets and that they are still Mages of Fairy Tail. This makes her have a glimmer of hope and even makes her call Happy by his name for once instead of "Male Cat". Happy grabs Carla and decides that they will rescue their friends themselves, causing a rebellion against the kingdom.
After running away from the guards, they end up at two Exceeds house at the edge of Extalia. The Exceed recognizes them as rebels, but still decide to shelter them telling them to hide in their house. Later on all four of them have a conversation about bonds and friends, which reignites Carla's will to continue on and save everyone. With their confidence restored in the friendships they hold with Natsu, Wendy, and the rest of the guild, they are finally able to fly into the sky.
After returning to Edolas, they manage to save Lucy from the hands of Erza Knightwalker. Carla tries to exploit her lack of information and presents herself as Extalia's princess. She then tricks Erza into releasing Wendy and Natsu, which almost succeeds.Unfortunately, the rest of the royal guard arrives, and Lily informs Erza Knightwalker that Carla and Happy are the traitors of Extalia. All three attempt to escape, and Carla asks Lucy if she's angry at them. Lucy is very surprised by this question as she really doesn't know for what she should be angry for. Carla says that it is their fault that she got caught in the first place, and Lucy replies that they had come to save her, and then she adds that she is more surprised by the fact that Carla is a princess. Carla then reveals that it was a bluff. Unfortunately, the group is then attacked by Extalia troops and Edolas Militia from both the sky and ground.However, Faust decides that this is the perfect moment to use Code ETD, which turns the Extalia troops into a lacrima.
Making use of the confusion, the group escapes into the West Tower to save Natsu and Wendy. However, they are intercepted by Erza Knightwalker again on the way there, and she throws her spear into the ground, creating a large explosion that injures Happy, Carla and Lucy.Despite her injuries, Carla immediately demands to know where Wendy is, and she becomes even more distraught after hearing Wendy scream for help. As Erza raises her weapon to kill Carla, Happy steps in to protect Carla. Thankfully, Erza (Scarlet)and Gray appear, bashing the soldiers.
When Natsu shows up, the group decides to split into two. Wendy tells Carla that the two of them are going to stop the lacrima from hitting Extalia. Carla does not agree saying she doesn't care about the Exceed. Wendy just tells her that it doesn't matter who they are since they are still living creatures, making Carla agree.While heading towards where Natsu and Wendy are, she learns that Dragon Slayer Magic can be used to release anyone trapped in the lacrima. Happy flies towards Gajeel since he knows where the lacrima crystal is located. She doesn't scold or worry about Happy leaving on his own, and has full confidence that he will be fine. She later arrives at the room where Natsu and Wendy are and finds them unconscious. However Gray manages to feed them some X-balls he got from Mystogan and they regain consciousness. Later Wendy tells her and the others about Faust's plan of using the lacrima where everyone is trapped in as a bomb, to crash into and destroy Extalia.
Lucy, Coco, Gray, Happy, and Carla fall into a forest. Edolas troops show up. The troops spot Carla and Happy and aim to turn them into lacrima since they are the only two left. Gray attacks and protects them. Lucy summons Loke and Carla and Happy dodges beams of Magic, but Carla jumps in front of one to protect Happy. They start to lose when even more reinforcements arrive, but then Edolas Fairy Tail comes to the rescue and helps them fight. When Mystogan starts taking all the Magic away from Edolas, the troops lose their Magic weapons and retreat. Everyone panics including Edolas Fairy Tail. Finally when all the Magic is gone, all the Earth Land Fairy Tail members start being sucked into the Anima as well returning back to their home.They all say goodbye to Edolas Fairy Tail and Coco.
Returning back to Earth Land, Carla is surprised that all the Exceed were sucked into Earth Land as well. Carla immediately requests them to go back to Edolas. The Exceeds apologize for their actions back on Extalia, such as throwing rocks. Carla disregards it and shouts at the queen for the mission that the Exceeds had given her. The Exceed Elders and Shagotte explain everything, including Carla's ability to foresee the future, and her misinterpretation that there was a mission to eliminate Dragon Slayers. After hearing the truth, and the Exceeds' new resolve, Carla accepts their arrival to Earth Land. However, Carla wonders why she and Shagotte have the same ability, which the Elders and Shagotte pretend not to know either. As the Exceed are about to leave, Shagotte gives Carla one final hug, saying that they can see each other anytime now. Carla, not knowing why, feels a deep warmth from her.
After the Exceed leave, Pantherlily appears in a new form and brings forth Lisanna. Lisanna reveals to be actually Earth Land Lisanna.With this, everyone brings Lisanna back to her siblings for a tearful reunion.
Tenrou Island ArcEdit
Following their return to the guild, Carla is more open with everyone. She later jokes with Happy and Lily about fighting one-another to see who was stronger.
After Natsu's battle with Zancrow concluded, Wendy and the cats are seen over the unconscious Natsu and barely conscious Makarov, with Wendy trying to heal them. After Natsu wakes up and asks them where Makarov is, she tells him that Makarov can't speak at the moment. He then picks up a familiar scent of a former enemy they fought on Galuna Island and walks off, despite the cats' protests.
After some time, and the return of Natsu, Lucy and Happy, Doranbolt eventually appears before everyone. Carla is shocked when Doranbolt proposes to help Fairy Tail, but she agrees with everyone else when they state they can take care of their own problems.

With this information, they move out, with Natsu carrying Makarov on his shoulders.

After Gildarts' arrival he orders everyone to get away, and the force from Gildarts and Bluenote clashing sends Carla and the others flying. After realizing that they'd only be in Gildarts way they all decide to leave. Later when Azuma destroys the Great Tenrou Tree, Carla collapses along with the other members of Fairy Tail. After Erza defeats Azuma, Carla and the others return to the camp and discover their friends are injured. Wendy tries to heal them using her Magic, but Carla and Happy disagree with the idea since she already exhausted her Magical Power and suggests that she rests for a while.
As the cats continue to search the ship they crawl through a vent. Happy looks down through one of the vent cages and sees something and claims it was "alive". Carla, Pantherily, and Happy all stare at it in shock.The cats go into the room. Carla looks at the supposed power source and says it doesn't look like one at all. Just then,a group of Grimoire Heart members enter the room and attack the cats. Carla and Happy agree to try to stop the power source, as Pantherlily fights off the Grimoire Heart members. Carla and Happy start pulling on chains and anything they can find, in an attempt to mess with the power source. While at the camp, Carla and Happy comment on Panther Lily's fear of lightning, making light fun of him. Carla then moves out with the others as they go to attack Master Hades. Carla goes to confront Hades at the boat belonging to Grimoire Heart, along with Happy, Pantherlily, Gray, Wendy, Natsu, Lucy, and Erza. After Hades challenges the rest of Fairy Tail, Natsu asks the cats to search around Grimoire Heart's Airship to make sure it wouldn't be able to take off during battle. Carla agrees and tells Wendy to be careful, before she sets off with Happy and Lily.While Team Natsu fights Hades, the cats are interrupted by the sound of thunder. Pantherlily gets scared again, thinking the ship was soundproof at first. Carla and Happy tell him to settle down as they continue searching in the ship.When Laxus arrives, the part of the ship the cats were on starts to spark with electricity. Happy and Pantherlily then both get scared thinking their falling. Carla then tells both of them to calm down."Grimoire Heart" destroyed by Happy and CarlaWhile Natsu clashed with Hades for the final time, Happy and Carla managed to kill the power source, which turned out to be Hades's real heart.
With Hades's "heart" destroyed, the fearsome Guild Master lost the majority of his Magic Power, leading to his final defeat.

When Erza also joins in, she comments that Erza hasn't matured either. When they find Lucy, she and the others listen to her as she explains how she became invisible. Carla then comes back with Wendy from Lucy's room and brings the Magic ointment. When Lucy starts to vanish, Carla explains that Lucy's stuff will also vanish, including the bottle.

When Lucy turns back to normal, Happy spills the ointment, which makes everyone invisible except Lucy.Carla, along with Natsu, Wendy, Lucy and Happy, takes a job to guard gold in a freight cart, where she later states to Wendy that Natsu has gotten used to Troia and that he is now immune to it.

Later she, along with the rest of the guild, quietly listens to Michelle’s story upon the girls arrival. Carla appears visibly uneasy when Michelle's case is opened, but when questioned about it she simply says that it’s nothing and moves on. Some time after this, she is found in the guild with Macao and Wakaba awaiting Laki’s arrival with the information Wakaba sent Laki to retrieve regarding the Lobster family; listening intently as Laki reads the report. She thinks to herself how she is worried about something just as the mysterious object from Jude falls to the floor and begins to levitate and glow.

Grand Magic Games ArcEdit
When Carla, Natsu, Gray, Wendy, Happy and Lucy visit Porlyusica in an attempt to obtain a drug to make them stronger, they are shooed away by her. After running away, Carla grows concerned over Wendy and asks if she had met Porlyusica before. Although she hasn't, Wendy tells everyone Porlyusica reminded her a lot about Grandeeney. Porlyusica later informs them that she is Grandeeney's Edolas counterpart and hands Wendy a Sky Magic book containing spells that Grandeeney was unable to teach her.
The group hears about the upcoming Grand Magic Games from the other members, which will be held in three months. Psyched with the opportunity to become Fiore's number one guild again, they head off to train. Carla tags along with Team Natsu, Juvia, Levy and Wendy to their training by the beach.
On the second day of their training, Virgo pays a surprise visit and takes them all to the Celestial Spirit World. Upon arriving, the spirits throw a party to celebrate their freedom from the time freeze on Tenrou Island. The group indeed parties without a second thought. After the day ends, they are sent back to Earth Land only to discover that a day in the Celestial Spirit World is equal to three months on Earth Land, completely eliminating their training time and leaving them with only five more days until the Games.
The team is invited by Crime Sociere to a suspension bridge in the West Woods. After a brief reunion, Ultear decides to increase everyone in Fairy Tail's power by activating their "Second Origin" with her Arc of Time in exchange for investigating a strange Magical force surrounding the Magic Games in their place. Carla and Happy, however, do not take part in the same treatment and are left to watch and wait until the pain caused by the Magic in the others has gone away.
Carla accompanies Wendy in exploring Crocus before the Games and they reach the Mercurius castle. A small dark figure looks at them from above. Wendy and Carla are late for the 12:00 midnight curfew when the preliminary round of the games begin. Lisanna and Happy go off to search for her and Carla. Lisanna and Happy's search leads them to Wendy's bag which has fallen on the ground. The two find Wendy and Carla and bring them to their room where Happy is shown to be very worried for Carla.
Even though Elfman won his battle against Bacchus, he was heavily injured, so he ended up in the hospital in Carla and Wendy's place. As the team walks back to the stadium with Lisanna and Carla, they start wondering why Raven Tail would go to such lengths to sabotage them, with Carla stressing on the fact that Lucy was the one who was being specifically targeted. However Carla decides to put it out of her mind when she reaches the stadium, where she is warmly greeted by Happy, and instead focuses on cheering for Mirajane, who is up against Jenny Realight from Team Blue Pegasus. She is shocked and embarrassed to see that their duel has turned into a swimsuit battle.</p>
After the days games end, Carla and some of the other members of Team A have dinner and then head towards their lodging, only to see Yukino standing outside Honeybone.After inviting the excommunicated Sabertooth Mage inside, Yukino surprises them all by offering her two Golden Gate Keys to Lucy, and then goes on to explain that she will be replaced from the next match onward. When Carla and Happy ask whether or not she was one of the "strongest 5" of Sabertooth, Yukino explains that she was merely a replacement for Minerva, who was out on a mission. After Lucy politely refuses to take her keys, the girls go for a bath. Wendy and Carla then ask Lucy why she didn't accept the keys, to which Lucy responds that she didn't want to break the bonds between the Spirits and their Mage. Lucy then asks what happened to Natsu and Happy, to which they answer, saying that he went after Yukino.
During the third day's battle portion, Carla is seen cheering along with the other members of Fairy Tail about Laxus' victory against Team Raven Tail. When it's Wendy's turn to battle, Wendy trips, which makes Carla wonder if she is going to be fine.
Later, Carla is seen worrying about Wendy after the midway of the battle between Wendy and Chelia. After Chelia's special attack misses, she explains that Wendy can not heal herself but can relieve the fatigue of others. When the battle is declared a draw, she scolds Happy for crying but can not help but cry herself.
Later, Carla and the other Fairy Tail members are seen partying at a local bar for their successful day. As Wendy talks about how she couldn't win, Carla assures her that she did great.

Sun Village ArcEdit
Happy, Carla with Wendy, and the rest of Team Natsu then wake their way to Walrod Cken's house, with happy in particular noting that with the location as scenic as it is, it feels as though they're going on a picnic. After Wendy notices Walrod's house, Happy and the others enter it, but are quickly silenced by the Ten Wizard Saint; Happy is then surprised to see the flowers inside the man's house bloom around him as he counters his previous statement, claiming that he was joking and that the flowers loves voices. Happy, as well as Carla, are then picked up by Walrod, who confuses the two with Natsu and Gray, claiming that they look for cat-ish than expected; he quickly dismisses this as a joke as well. Happy and Carla, with the others then relocate outside, where Walrod describes his request: to unfreeze all the people and the Eternal Flame in the Village of the Sun. Walrod adds that the villagers whom are trapped in the ice are still alive, leaving Happy and Carla shocked. Following a short explanation about why he is unable to do the task himself, Happy, Carla and the other members of Team Natsu look at each other, and they all decide to accept Walrod's request. Walrod then has them stand orders them to turn right; Happy turns left instead. However, a tree then rises from the ground, and carries Happy with Carla, and the rest of Team Natsu the needed 2,000 kilometer to reach the Village of the Sun. While riding on top of the tree, Happy marvels at the scenery below.
When Happy and Carla with the other Fairy Tail Mages reach the Village of the Sun, Happy points out that the village is frozen solid. Both Natsu and Happy are shocked to find out that the village is in fact a village of giants. When Natsu attempts to use his Magic to melt the ice that is trapping the giants, Happy encourages him and cheers him on. However, Natsu fails, and Happy agrees that it is not easy as they thought. When members from a treasure hunter guild, Sylph Labyrinth, appear and ask the Happy and Carla with the Mages what they are doing there, Happy answers that they are trying to melt the ice and save the villagers. When it appears that Sylph Labyrinth plans to use Moon Drip to get the treasure they want, Happy recognizes the substance, and the Fairy Tail Mages decide to steal it from the treasure hunters in order to save the villagers. As everyone takes off after the treasure hunters, Lucy and Wendy notice that Erza is not with them, prompting Happy and Carla to imagine her attacking the frozen giants hoping to fix things, which Carla turns unto total shock. During their battle, a shot is fired at the members of Fairy Tail. Upon seeing this, Carla immediately turns back to back with Happy as they search for where the bullet came from.
Following this assault, Carla stands beside Wendy, awaiting the next attack. Then, after Gray steals the treasure hunters' Moon Drip, Wendy throws the stolen bottle to Carla, who in turn throws it Happy; the Exceed fails to catch the bottle, resulting in it smashing upon contact with the ground, spilling its contents all over the frozen ice, leaving her utterly flabbergasted. Natsu, however, suddenly hears a voice from coming from underneath the partially melted ice, resulting in him darting off to find the source. Carla and the rest of the team present then make haste and run to catch up with the Fire Dragon Slayer. After losing Natsu, Happy and Carla take to the air to look for him. Carla later stops her aerial search and cowers under the root of a tree, alongside Happy, in fear of the demonic avian creature flying above; the two Exceed conclude that until it disappears, their search of the skies will be halted.
Affected by Doriate's Retrogression Magic, Happy and Carla come crashing down onto the ground near Gray's current standing position, quickly updating the latter on their inability to fly. Then Happy takes a glace at Gray's opponent and screams in fear, questioning its physique. He then watches as Gray struggles to keep up against the Demon, and steps in to save him from an impending assault. However, in return, he receives a punch to the face when he does so. After Gray defeats the Demon with the surrounding ice, Happy cheers along with Carla as they return to their former appearance, but their joy is short-lived as the creature that kept them from patrolling the skies earlier enters the fray.
