03MT004-full Lunari are an ancient organization and religious order which task is to venerate the Aspect of the Moon of Mount Targon.


Lore

The worship of the Moon. The religion spoke that the world needed balance between both sun and moon to live and thrive. However, it has long since been quashed from the world and history, most likely by the Solari's hand. The Lunari's return may come to pass through the crusade waged by Diana OriginalSquare Diana, the Scorn of the Moon and an outcast by the Solari themselves.

Culture

Weapons

  • Forbidden Weapons
  • Lunari Moonstone Weapons
  • Calibrum, the Rifle
  • Crescendum, the Chakram
  • Gravitum, the Cannon
  • Infernum, the Flamethrower
  • Severum, the Scythe Pistol

The weapons mainly used by the Lunari are made of moonsilver, silver metal forged in moonlight which imbues with a touch of magic. Some of them are also made of moonstones which are super-rare stones from a piece of the moon that broke off and embedded in the mountain aeons ago and are evidently much more potent magically than moonsilver.

Diana OriginalSquare Diana's blade was made of moonsilver for fighting, while Aphelios OriginalSquare Aphelios' weapons were made of both moonstone and moonsilver and were more sculptural in nature - originally more like holy art pieces carved from the most sacred and precious material. His weapons were only refined and set into moonsilver brackets after Alune and Aphelios unlocked their potential as focuses for her magical power.[1]

Hymn of the Hour

The Hymn of the Hour tells the story of The Golden Sister and The Silver Sister.[2]

"From the heavens,
Two beings came,
One was robed in silver's glow,
The other clad in golden flame,
Though both were formed of cosmic light,
They fought, for they were too alike,
And so these two split night from day,
So each could always have their way."

The Order

  • The Lunari
  • Hope For The Future
  • Priestess Of The Moon
  • Blinding Light
  • Diana's Discovery

Branded by the Solari as heretics, the Lunari worship the silvery light of the moon. They practice their beliefs in secret, hiding from those who seek to rid Targon of their influence forever—even though some claim that, long ago, the two groups lived in peace, worshipping the heavens as one people.

The Lunari chart celestial movements to divine the future. Certain priestesses wear necklaces of mirrored moonglass, believing that reflections can reveal even greater truths. Some Lunari seers bind their eyes during the day, training their eyes to see only in darkness - for only under the pure light of the moon is truth revealed.

Trivia

  • The sectarian names Solari & Lunari derive from Latin sol and luna.
    • The Solari's dismissive and disdainful attitude towards the Lunari possibly references the astronomical fact that the Moon does not emit any light, but only reflects the Sun's light.[3]
