WHO IS LAYLA HEARTFILIA?
Am I the only one who is obsessed with revealing the mystery behind Layla Heartfilia? I’ve thought very long and did a little research, and in the end I have one theory.
Result of my little research:
(1) Layla means ‘dark’, ‘night beauty’, ‘born at night’ and ‘night’.
(2) Lucy means ‘light’, 'born at dawn' and 'born at daylight'.
Layla died in x777 and the dragons disappeared in the same year on July 7. In FTWiki it is said that Layla dies of an unknown illness. But is that true? There’s a possibility that she died on July 7 and her death is connected with the dragons. Oh, and don’t forget that there is a chance that she faked her death and she is still alive. + When she was showed in the anime/manga, she was supposed to be 29 years old but she looked younger. Isn’t that strange?
On July 7, x791 Lucy is going to close the Eclipse gate and the dragons will come back.
Lucy and Layla are really mysterious. First, they look exactly like each other. (Could they be doppelgangers? If I didn’t know Layla was Lucy’s mother, I would say that she is her twin sister.) Second, Layla’s actions are followed by the dragons’ disappearance and Lucy’s actions are followed by the dragons’ return. Third, their name meanings are antonyms: Lucy–Light & Layla–Dark. They play a really important part in the whole dragon-human conflict but there is still something that we don’t know.
And something else is really bothering me: NATSU’S AGE!
HIRO SAID COUNTLESS TIMES THAT NATSU’S AGE IS VERY IMPORTANT TO THE STORY SO HE IS DEFINITELY OLDER THAN HE LOOKS! It’s possible that he knew Layla… No, I don’t think so. But who knows?
Anyway, what do you think about Layla?
