|~ Jura Neekis to Hoteye in "Light"|
Jura Neekies is one of the protagonists in the anime and Manga series, Fairy Tail. He is one of the Ten Wizard Saints and is the ace of his guild, Lamia Scale. Jura himself played a role during the Oracion Seis arc where he and his guild members would team up with other guilds to fight against the Dark Guild, the Oracion Seis. Jura himself has been known to be called "Iron Rock Jura." In the one-year timeskip, Jura along with the rest of the Ten Wizards Saints are now councillers of the new Magic Council and thus no longer a member of Lamia Scale.
He is voiced by legendary voice actor Kent Williams who also voices Hatori Sohma.
He is a man who believes that the power of magic itself does not win battles, but rather their strong conviction. Jura is known to be a respectful individual addressing everyone with suffix "-Dono" such as referring to Makarov as "Makarov-Dono" and even referring to Happy as "Cat-Dono." He is also a loyal and caring comrade as he willingly risked his life to protect his guild members Lyon Vastia and Sherry Blendi from danger such as help fight off the Various Dark guilds as well as use his own body to shield Natsu, Gray, and Lucy from a trap set up by Brain. He also believed that arresting a good man is unjust and is willing to fight against the law as seen when the Rune Knights led by Laharl was coming to arrest Jellel Fernandes after he tried to help him and his comrades against the Oracion Seis. Jura is also a humble man as he believed himself to be the weakest of the Ten Wizard Saints as he compared the strength between Makarov and Himself as "heaven and earth." Despite his seriousness, he does display a comical side of himself such as when Hoteye one of the Oracion Seis was affected by Nirvana hugged him or when Jellel disguised as Mystogan comically fainted during their match in the Grand Magic Games. He also seems to dislike peas because a worm got into his mouth when he was eating.
