The Strauss Family (ドレアー・かぞく Sutorausu Kazoku) is a family of a race of human beings from the Kingdom of Fiore. All three siblings have the advanced Caster-Type Transformation Magic, Take Over, which gave them the title, Take Over Siblings (テイク・オーバー・きょうだい Teiku Ōbā Kyoudai).
Sometime during their younger years, Mirajane Strauss, Elfman Strauss, and Lisanna Strauss' parents died. At around the age of 13, Mirajane helped the townspeople by defeating a Demon that had taken over the church. However, she and her siblings left the village, after being feared by its inhabitants. Eventually, they reached the Fairy Tail Guild and, even though Elfman and Lisanna got along well with everyone quickly, Mirajane still believed herself to be a monster, and attempted to leave Magnolia. In order to change that, Elfman and Lisanna learnt their respective Take Over from Makarov, so that their older sibling would no longer feel alone.
In the year X782, during a mission to suppress the King of monsters, The Beast, Elfman takes over the body of The Beast, transforming into Beast Soul: Full-Body Take Over to protect Mirajane from being killed by The Beast. However, The Beast's Magic Power was too great and Elfman loses his self-control. As Mirajane and Lisanna witness Elfman's predicament, Mirajane states that if Elfman doesn't come to his senses soon, he will be consumed by The Beast. Lisanna tries to revert Elfman back to normal, but he hits her with great force, throwing her a great distance. In her last moments, Lisanna holds her sister Mirajane's hands, and seems to pass away.
As Mirajane is tending Lisanna's wound, an Anima opens and takes Lisanna into a parallel dimension known as Edolas. When she regains consciousness, she finds herself at a parallel Fairy Tail Guild. Everyone at the guild believed that she was the Lisanna they knew, and welcomed her back with a smile. From their reaction, she deduced that their Lisanna had passed away. She found herself unable to say anything, and pretended to be their Lisanna.
After her sister's supposed death, Mirajane loses most of her magical ability and her will to fight. Mirajane also starts behaving differently towards Erza. Her personality changes drastically from a very feared person to a loving and caring person who treats everyone with kindness. Elfman also changes, being unable to perform a Full-Body Take Over.
