Jose Porla is the guild master of Phantom Lord. He wears a witch's hat that bears the Phantom Lord guild symbol. He also seems to have a pair of wings, though they are never seen being used. Jose's magic is called Shade. With it he can create ghost troopers that he can command at will. He can also create a wave of ghosts. He dislikes Fairy Tail because before it came along, Phantom Lord was the strongest guild in the country, but now they're considered equal. Thus he feels that they are upstarts who stole his guild's title as the strongest. He's said to be just as strong as Makarov.
