With this chapter it does seem less likely. But it was only ever a possibility. And well.. Seeing as it would have been made a twist, it should seem like it would be completely unexpected.. Which it would have been and still would be, but then itd be expected for him to come back to FT.. So it wouldnt work very well.
Good chapter. Glad everyone knows now. I was wondering why mashima blocked that last guy from view. Guessing he just wants this guy to be mysterious or he has some connection to the story and has been shown before.
Wonder if that could be mest. Seems like its a big possibility, now. Almost seems like it should be a member of FT, that way it explains how GH got info on them. Hopefully its not laxus..
*edit* you really think thats hades FM? Look at that guys chest.. no way such an old guy should be like that.. Unless he has some magic that covers that. Which would explain why he covered his face. The clothes were different, too, not that it matters a whole lot
Btw, who do we know that has a scar on his chest in FT? though its probably that guys sleeve or something..
