Bella Onyx is an S-class Mage of the Fairy Tail Guild and a former S-class Mage of Phantom Lord. She is also a member of Team Gajeel. She is among the ten Dragon Slayers sent to the future from 400 years past to assist in the defeat of Acnologia. She serves as a love interest for Rogue Cheney.
Bella has slanted, slit pupiled, electric blue eyes and curly black hair which she normally keeps in a high ponytail with some strands hanging in her face. She has tanned skin. Like other Dragon Slayers, her teeth are distinctively canine sharp. She is usually smirking or scowling around Phantom Lord, but smiles a little more when she joins Fairy Tail.
Bella wears a sleeveless and backless black shirt. She wears black pants, black boots, and armbands. Sometimes she'll wear a jacket that is half black, half purple. Skybreaker is at her side. On her shoulder is the Phantom Lord symbol, which is dark purple in color. When Phantom Lord is disbanded and she joins Fairy Tail, the mark is replaced with the Fairy Tail mark.
During and after the Grand Magic Games, Bella wears a blue-violet sleeveless and backless top and gray pants with black boots. She also sometimes wears a black cloak, but will throw it off when entering a serious battle.
In the year X792, Bella wears a sleeveless and gold and black dragon scale top, black pants, black boots, and black armbands with gold studs. Over this, she wears a high collared black cloak. Her weapons remain in their same place. Her Sabertooth mark was gold, but she replaced it with a gold Fairy Tail mark when it got back together.
As a member of Phantom Lord, Bella was ruthless, apathetic, and cruel. She loved fighting, and she fought aggressively. At first, she saw bonds as a weakness, and people who looked up to her could easily be manipulated. However, when she joins Fairy Tail, her sense of camaraderie increased, and she became friends with more people. However, she keeps her bossy and leading nature throughout the series, and nobody dares to defy her.
Bella can be described as a psycho. She is crazy and wild and will do almost anything to reach her goals. During her time at Phantom Lord, she was okay with torturing two defenseless girls, and even her own comrades. During her fight with Rogue on the fifth day of the Grand Magic Games, she happily proclaims that she is still a psycho and has no problem fighting dirty. Juvia Lockser has stated that Bella is a terrifying and powerful woman.
But even while she was at Phantom, Bella had friends. She was friends with Gajeel, Juvia, Totomaru, Sol, and Aria, her fellow S-class Mages. She also considered Zeus her friend. But as for the rest of the guild, she was fine with hurting them. She doesn't do this to her own guild when she joins Fairy Tail, but is seen to do this to her enemies.
Bella dislikes perverts and becomes very shy when something concerning love or anything remotely sexual is spoken. She isn't one to be harassed, though, even if she does get all red-faced around sex talk. When her feeling for Rogue started to develop, she would get slightly red-faced at the slightest mention of him.
Like all other Dragon Slayers, Bella suffers from severe motion sickness.

Bella originally came from a village that believed they could defeat dragons without Dragon Slayer Magic called Idrish. Bella was a dragon hunter like her late parents before her, but deep down she knew it was impossible. One day while standing on a high cliff, she was approached by the Lightning Dragon Blitz. Bella chose not to kill her, and she gained Blitz's trust. She decided to leave her home to train with Blitz. Blitz was a foster mother to Bella. She taught Bella Lightning Dragon Slayer Magic as well as hand to hand combat. Blitz practically raised Bella, until one day.
Blitz was left in a half dead state by Acnologia. She joined in a plan involving Igneel, Natsu Dragneel, Naomi Dragneel, Metallicana, Gajeel Redfox, Grandeeney, Wendy Marvell, Weisslogia, Sting Eucliffe, Skiadrum, Rogue Cheney, Quarris, Terra Carbonne, Leilani, Sebastian LeRoux, Posiden, Misty Swanson, Zeref Dragneel, amd Anna Heartfilia. She used the Dragon Soul Technique and used Bella's body as a vessel, so Bella would not suffer the same fate as Acnologia and so Blitz could heal, but it didn't go as planned. Going through the Eclipse Gate, Bella's memory was altered into believing Blitz left.
Bitter that Blitz left, Bella became cold and evil. She joined Phantom Lord and quickly became an S-class wizard. Her bloodthirsty nature was considered an important trait to the guild master. She led her team, consisting of Zeus the Exceed, Jace Dispel, Isaiah Backburn, Jedediah Backburn. She was admired by the young fellow Dragon Slayer, Terra Carbonne. She also frequently worked with Gajeel Redfox, the Iron Dragon Slayer.
