lunaLuna was once the Scourge of the Plains, a ruthless leader of men and beasts, and able to generate terror whenever she was challenged.

Away from her homeland, driven mad from hunger and months of drifting, her army deceased or turned to bad. She now stands at the edge of an ancient forest, a pair of glowing eyes spied on from an elder branch. Something beautiful and deadly sought something to eat in the wilting dusk. Without a sound, it turned and left. Fury overtook her. Clutching a rust-eaten dagger, she charged after the beast determined to reclaim even a shred of her past glory, but her quarry would not be caught. Three times she cornered the creature among the rocks and trees, and three times she ambushed the beast only to observe its fading shadow dashing further into the woods.

With the moon full and shining brightly, and the creature’s trace was simple to follow. Luna enters a clearing at the top a high hill, the beast’s massive feline form sat in the open, paying special attention and waiting. When the woman wielded her dagger, the creature reared and roared then charged.

Death was close at hand in a strange place. She stood, composed and ready. A flash of movement, and the beast snatched the dagger from her hand before disappearing into the forest.  Several covered figures approached. In respectful tones they revealed that Selemene, Goddess of the Moon, had selected her, guided her, and had tested her throughout this time.  Unwittingly she had beard the hallowed rites of the Dark Moon, warriors of the Nightsilver Woods.

Luna was offered a option: join the Dark Moon and pledge herself to the service of Selemene, or disappear and never return. She did not waver. Embracing her liberty, she relinquished her bloody past, and took up a new shroud as Luna of the Dark Moon, the feared Moon Rider, ruthless and ever-loyal guardian of the Nightsilver Woods.
