Luna is a would-be assassin who hunts Talon down to get vengeance for crimes of the past, but soon discovers that her own heritage is wrapped up in Talon's fate. The two women become unlikely allies as they travel the realm in search of ways to defeat The Seven, ultimately becoming trusted friends.
Luna is the first-born daughter of Maylock, a former Dragman, and the older sister of Ilyin. Both sisters were placed in an ancient sanctuary alongside other potential Dragman's. Despite the extensive studious offerings, Luna excelled in fighting which made her less keen on being a member of the sanctuary. Luna was subjected to much intensity during her time there. One night as they lay sleeping, they heard the sounds of men dying and shouting. Before long, the sanctuary was filled with dead bodies as a man, Everit Dred, searched for the Dragman. Ilyin and Luna hid beneath the dead bodies in the hopes of convincing Dred that they, too, had died. Ilyin stirred and her movement caught Dred's attention. He kidnapped her while Luna lay there, unable to move, completely petrified. This event traumatized Luna, and she was forced into the world alone and a child. She kept track of Ilyin, who was now serving Dred, but Luna wasn't able to save her sister. She learned of Ilyin's murder at the hands of a dark-haired Blackblood woman, and traveled the realm to seek revenge. She discovered a woman matching the description of her sister's murderer in Gallwood Outpost.
Luna made her way to Gallwoods soon after the Hive was destroyed, just in time for Queen Rosmund's memorial. She visited the The Nightshade Inn, where she saw Talon drinking and playing Octor. After becoming intoxicated, Talon staggered home. Luna ambushed Talon near the entrance of the house, using a barely open door to distract Talon into thinking someone broke inside. Talon asked Luna to wait until she was sober, but Luna refused and continued her onslaught of attacks. Talon tried to call for her Lu-Qiri to no avail. Instead, she used her kinj to open a portal to the Plane of Ashes. This frightened Luna enough for her to take pause, while the Coalition guards rushed to the alley. Luna escaped into the night.
The next night, Luna tried to attack Talon again and was easily overpowered. Talon then demanded answers from Luna, who admitted she came to kill her sister's murderer. Talon corrected that she might be a killer, but she wasn't a murderer. Luna revealed that her sister's name was Ilyin, and Talon remembered her Dragman friend who died at the hand of Rebb. With her sister's murderer dead, Luna had no reason to attack Talon. She instead, swore her allegiance to the woman as being in her debt.
After leaving Talon's, Luna went to the Nightshade Inn to play octor, where she proved herself a strong player against he men at the table. Janzo, however, noticed her cheating and asked her to leave. While she initially refused, he quietly called her out for cheating and threatened to have her forcefully removed. She announced her forfeiture to her competitors, who mocked her with an insulting nickname of "little girl". The players ultimately fought, though Munt intervened at Janzo's behest. Just then, Prime Order soldiers burst in and decreed the outlawing of alcohol and gambling. They arrested Luna for breaking both of these newly reinstated laws.
Once in prison, Luna meets the former base commander Garret Spears, and the two talk quickly realize they share a mutual friend in Talon.
Luna is a stubborn young girl that is easily overconfident. She tries her best to be battle harded at all times, and often succeeds. However, there are times when her emotions over take her. Despite herself being very good at fighting and avoiding fights, she easily gets in way over her head in trying to kill her targets. She also has a tendency to be greedy and will cheat her way to make easy money. She can also be manipulative to others, such as lying about her age to get men to fall into her traps. While manipulative to others, she has a strong loyalty to those she cares about. Such as going to extreme lengths to avenge her sister, or even protecting Talon from The Seven.
Despite Luna being the older sister of Ilyin, the two look quite dissimilar. In contrary to Ilyin who had dirty straight blonde hair and pale eyes, Luna has an olive complexion naturally curly dark hair and brown eyes. She is also able to pass off younger than her actual age of eighteen; which is useful in situations she finds herself in. She usually wears light clothes, and has cloak and mask to try and sneak up on her targets.
Powers and Abilities
Similar to that of Luna's younger sister, Ilyin; she can tell when someone is lying. Although her gift isn't as honed as Ilyin's once was. Additionally, Luna is an experienced fighter with a diverse training background. She is also trained in Grinjorian, a rare form of martial arts that Talon is also adept in. While she is good with throwing knives, her lack of training makes her miss her targets sometimes. After finding The Skevikor Key, she discovers that her Dragman powers are more active now. As a Dragman she can hear the whisper of many coming from objects that have connections to The Seven, or The Blackbloods. Talon once told her that she needs to focus on her powers in order to drown out any noise to hear the whispers, indicating that her sister Ilyin had the same problem once.
Luna is the oldest sister of Ilyin, and only member of their family known to be alive. They were close as children and although Luna was jealous of her sister's prodigy. She still cared for her and regret that Everit Dred took Ilyin while she continue to play dead among the corpses he left in the sanctuary. Luna vowed to learn how to protect herself better after this event. She kept track of Ilyin whereabouts while she was training in Grinjorian however Luna never got the chance to recuse her from Dred and more importantly from Rebb whom she told Talon that the revenge wasn't her to take after Talon clear up the misunderstanding when Luna though that she was her sister's killer. Talon also told Luna that Ilyin never mentioned her implying that Ilyin had little to no memory of Luna given that she was young child when she was taken and forced to serve Dred.
The relationship between these two ladies is an unusual one. Originally Luna was under the assumption that Talon had killed her little sister. She found her way to The Outpost and tried to kill Talon twice. On the second attempt Talon over powered her and she found out the truth about what really happened to her sister. Talon and Ilyin were actually friends, and that a different Blackblood named Rebb had killed Ilyin. Talon then explains that she killed Rebb for her own reasons. Luna then feels like she owes a debt to Talon for avenging her sister. She tries to repay that debt by trying to assassinate the newly crowned Falista Relman only to fail at this too. Afterwards she goes backs to Talon's Place to recover. Ever since then Talon has been acting like a mentor to her, in the same sense that The Smith was towards Talon. With the awakening of The Seven, the two ladies are often seen together on missions trying to defeat them. After one mission in particular Luna discovered her Dragman powers, and Talon helped her hone them better, completing the cycle of mentorship of The Smith's and Talon. A month after the Seven were defeated, Luna became one of the bridesmaid to Talon, and then became her advisor during her reign as Queen of the Realm.
Luna and Garret are friends with a flirty relationship on her end. She first meet Garret in prison. He laughs and remarks about how she reminds him of when he first meet Talon. The two would continue to talk about Talon until she was set free. She then thanked Garret for helping her find a way to settle her debt to Talon. Hearing this and knowing the similarities of the two woman, Garret is worried about her. Unfortunately there isn't anything he can do to stop her. A few days later however, Garret is set free by King Tobin Aegisford to hunt down the assasin who tried to kill Falista Relman. When he went over to Talon's place to update her, he inadvertantly found Luna hiding there.
