The Thunder God Tribe (in Japanese: 雷神衆 Raijinshū) is one of the several teams belonging to the Fairy Tail Guild. The team is one of the most powerful of the guild because of their extraordinary fighting skills (almost comparable to those of S-Class Mages) and especially for their unsurpassed magical powers. That's why the team was practically the only one to have been taken into account by Laxus Dreyar, and since then the group formed by this trio passes their lives in the guild for the purpose of serving and protecting the grandson of the Fairy Tail Master.
The members of the Thunder God Tribe are all three of the all most powerful mages of the guild, indifferently of their rank; this state was mainly due to the enormous and frightening magical power; Evergreen alone was able to offside almost all the strongest female members of the guild (who counted among their Juvia Lockser, Erza Scarlet and Mirajane Strauss files) with her Stone Eyes and, during the Guild Battle, easily defeated among the many mages including also Elfman Strauss (brother of a one of the S-Class Mages and a future candidate for grade advancement). Bickslow has also proven able to defeat many promising members, including Gray Fullbuster (another of the future candidates for S-Class grade).
But the most powerful member seems to be the leader Freed, who in addition to easily defeating most guild members (including Alzack O'Connel and Cana Alberona) and to hold for a while a "wake up" Mirajane Strauss before to be soundly defeated, demonstrated remarkable power and control over the entire battlefield, enclosing the entire Magnolia in a rune barrier, placing traps with various effects on in every possible street and holding guild captives a wizard of the likes of Makarov Dreyar (and unintentionally also Natsu and Gajeel).
All three members of the trio are among the few guild members who can fly.
- Freed Justine: The founder and leader of the team, Freed is a friend of Laxus extremely faithful and loyal (both in the manga and in the anime is made to understand several times that he is in love with him) enough to get his approval, is willing to put in place and support his crazy plan to unleash the Battle of Fairy Tail to eliminate all the members that Laxus considers weak and useless, even if it goes against him moral principles. He uses an extremely complicated and powerful form of Letter Magic that allows him to write and place wherever he wants magical runes that can not be broken unless his rules are correct. Freed is also the only member of the team to be considered and subsequently selected for promotion at rank S.
- Bickslow: The weirdest member of the team, Bickslow has a strong tendency of laughing out loud maniacally and sticking his tongue out. Bickslow possesses the magical ability to capture and slaughter the soul of his opponents and to transfer it into objects (usually in 5 wooden dolls that he calls "his babies") with his Figure Eyes.
- Evergreen: A seductive young woman obsessed with fairies, since childhood Evergreen had no other interest than for fairies (and then pushed her to join Fairy Tail just for it name). She has been recruited into the team due to the enormous power of her Stone Eyes Magic, with which she turns into stone anyone who looks at her with the eyes uncovered. Evergreen is also able to use the magic of fairies to show wings with which she flies and produces a powerful dust from tremendous explosive properties. Lastly, Evergreen is extremely jealous of Erza because she does not accept that the latter is known with the epithet of Titania, the Queen of Fairies.
