This cube craft paper model is the Elfman Strauss (Elfman’s Brother), based on the Anime / manga series Fairy Tail, this paper toy was designed by blackignus. Elfman Strauss is a Mage of the Fairy Tail Guild, and the brother of Mirajane Strauss and Lisanna Strauss.
Elfman is an extremely tall, massive and heavily muscular man with tan skin, who towers over most of his fellow guild members. His long white hair is kept styled upwards in long, wavy spikes, his dark eyes possess no visible eyebrows, and his rectangular, elongated face has a stitched scar running down its right side, crossing his right eye. His black Fairy Tail stamp is located on the left part of his neck. In his younger years, Elfman didn’t have the scar on his right eye, and his hair was shorter, with its style being reminiscent of a somehow messy bowl cut. After three months of training in the mountains with his sisters and Cana, not only have Elfman’s hair and sideburns grown longer, but he has also grown much more muscular physically.
Most of Elfman’s attires have a Japanese look to them. His usual outfit resembles that worn by fictional, Japanese high-school hooligans: it consists of a dark blue jacket with purplish blue inners, held closed on the front by a line of large buttons, with similar buttons on the sleeves’ back and the zip located on the high collar left open. The back of his jacket is adorned by large, light kanjis, which read “The greatest“, and the jacket itself seems to be worn over a light red shirt, sometimes seemingly replaced by an A-shirt covered in many vertical lines. Elfman’s outfit is completed by loose pants matching his jacket, held up by a simple belt, and traditional Japanese geta sandals, held in place by bands colored the same as his jacket’s inners. At the beginning of the Tenrou Island arc, Elfman, while retaining his sandals, switched to a light kimono shirt with elbow-long sleeves, mostly covered in dark, elongated spots and held closed around the waist by a similarly dark sash, and loose dark pants reaching down below his knees. Shortly afterwards, while on the ship leading the S-Class Candidates to Tenrou Island, he wore a dark fundoshi with the front covered by a large cloth adorned by a white kanji, and he later donned dark pants alongside his standard sandals while remaining bare-chested. Elfman’s outfit rarely remains intact: employing his Take Over Beast Arm prompts the sleeve of Elfman’s right arm to be torn to pieces, leaving his arm bare, and his pants tend to get shorter, torn edges as a result of his Beast Soul: Full-Body Take Over changing the structure of his legs; when he makes use of it, his pants also gain extremely spiky higher edges. When he was younger, Elfman donned a more elegant, Western-looking attire, consisting of a black suit over a white shirt, with a red papillon around the neck, and polished dark shoes.
Sometime in his younger years, Elfman’s parents died. He, along with his two siblings, joined the Fairy Tail Guild. He was around 12 years old at the time. When he was younger, he was quite, shy and kind. During this time, out of all his siblings, Elfman was the only one who couldn’t do a Full-Body Take Over, something which depressed him greatly, as he was supposed to “be a man”. During this time, Elfman helped Natsu and Lisanna raise an egg they found.
In the year X782, Elfman was deeply scarred by an incident where his younger sister, Lisanna, was supposedly killed by him when she tried to stop his rampage after he attempted to use Beast Soul: Full-Body Take Over. During his rampage, Elfman hit Lisanna with great force, throwing her a great distance. It is said that due to this, Elfman’s heart was locked shut, despite his use of the spell to protect his sisters.
Previously, Elfman was shy and weak, with his only real talent being for cooking. This caring nature of his came in useful though, as he helped Natsu look after Happy’s egg before it hatched.
Now, he is the strong willed, and pride powerhouse of Fairy Tail. He always uses the word “man” for showing his pride. He also scowled at Jet and Droy of Team Shadow Gear for putting Levy in danger during their mission and also -on their part- failing to show pride as men.
Elfman is very loving and protective of his sisters Mirajane and Lisanna, going to great lengths to prevent them from harm -to the point of threatening people like Bacchus.
Despite his huge ego, he is always very kind. When he lost his parakeet as a child, he searched for it for a whole week, but found a different one.
