The Clock (時計座 Tokeiza)
Horologium is a tall brown grandfather clock with long, black arms, a glass case, a Roman-numeral clock at the center and a small face at the top with slit eyes and a thin, twirly, mustache-like mouth. The glass case serves as protection for the one who is inside and Lucy usually uses this to protect herself from the cold. This case prevents anyone outside from hearing what the person inside is saying, so Horologium repeats everything the person inside says and then follows with a "...he/she/they say/s."
Little is known about his individual personality, as he almost only repeats what his owners say. It is clear though, that he deeply cares for his owner and even his owner's friends, as he has a habit of forcefully summoning himself to protect them.
Lucy summons Horologium to keep her sheltered on the snowy mountain where Macao was last seen. As Horologium speaks for Lucy, he asks Natsu what job Macao came for in the first place. Natsu says it was to defeat a Vulcan. Just then, a Vulcan jumps down and sees Lucy inside Horologium and carries the two away. The Vulcan eventually brings them to a cave, and he circles around Horologuim and Lucy. The Vulcan walks up to the Celestial Spirit, who then disappears, leaving Lucy unprotected.

Oración Seis arcSunting
When Nirvana was being destroyed, Lucy manages to escape under the protection of Horologium. Lucy wonders how is it that he came to her aid and he explained that he passed the gate through his own will because Lucy's Magical power has become greater than before, allowing him to be summoned without her consent.
Lucy explains to Natsu that Horologium passed through the gate and hid her away in an alternate dimension, telling her that he had sensed a disturbance in space, when Natsu asked her how she managed to avoid being turned into a giant Lacrima like the rest of Magnolia Town.
Tenrou Island arcSunting
Horologium saves Wendy from Hades's attempt to cast Katsu. Horologium explains to Lucy, Gray, Natsu and Erza that he was in Automatic Danger Response Mode and detected a dangerous threat. Lucy recalls all the times she was in danger and Horologium didn't help. Horologium apologizes and says the danger was higher than Lucy's previous ones. Horologium lets Wendy go, giving her new clothes. He goes back to the Spirit World after giving everyone one last warning, as he cannot summon himself again.

Lucy summons Horologium whilst trying to get away from the traps. When Virgo also appears beside him, Horologium tells Natsu that Lucy didn't summon Virgo, and later conveys Lucy's order to dig a hole to Virgo. He later explains Virgo's actions to Lucy, telling her that it's Virgo's punishment.
Grand Magic Games arcSunting
Horologium celebrates Lucy and her friends' return from Tenrou Island when Virgo brings them to the Celestial Spirit World. During the celebration, Wendy thanks Horologium again for saving her and how embarrassed when was for being naked inside of him. Horologium finds himself at a loss of words when this is brought up, so Lucy just tells Wendy he means to say it was no big deal. Before Lucy and her friends are sent off, Virgo tells Lucy that time in the two worlds are different. Horologium waves after hearing this, as the Mages realize they wasted the three months of their training in the Celestial Spirit World.
Horologium forcefully summons himself through the use of his automatic danger response mode when he senses that Arcadios is in grave danger. He rises from the lava with Arcadios inside his glass case, stating that he was able to save him in the nick of time. However, due to the pool of lava in which he is confined in, his body is unable to withstand the intense heat, as well as Arcadios' physique proving to be of great inconvenience, limiting his time in the human world. He is then joined by Loke, who hands Lucy her keys and Yukino her two golden keys.
Magic and Abilities Sunting
Inner Body: He keeps people safe within his clock body and he narrates for those inside him. He can be used in both non-combative and combative situations. Lucy uses him as shelter and transport when traveling in snowy and muddy area. In combat, he can protect the person inside him with his hard-wooden body. However, Horologium does not seem to have combative moves. He is also mostly on a time limit: he will transport back to the Celestial Spirit World once the time is up, leaving his occupant behind, regardless of any danger he or she may be in. He is also able to force-open his Celestial Gate.
Healing Abilities: As stated by Horologium, he can cure the following: lack of oxygen, bug bites, chapping skin, itchiness and skin spots.
Automatic Danger Response Mode: Horologium forcefully summons himself when he detects a severe danger about to occur, and shields the person's body in himself. This was used to save Wendy Marvell from Hades's Katsu spell. It is also possible Horologium did this when he saved Lucy from being sucked up by the Anima.
Immense Durability: Horologium is shown to have immense durability; he is able to completely submerge himself in lava and only sustain minor burns.
Immortality: As a Celestial Spirit, Horologium cannot die unless he is somehow forced to stay in the Human World.
