Luna (ルナ Runa) is the Mana Spirit of the Moon. She resembles a fairy, with wings behind a teardrop-shape housing a female face holding a glowing sphere.
Luna is mysterious and strange, She appears with little character development unlike the others, who have at least a personality associated with them. She tends to be dreamy at most.
Powers and abilitiesEdit
Throughout the installments of the Mana series, Luna has had an unusual past and has been representative of different powers. Luna's powers of the Moon are strange and varied, encompassing temporary transmogrification, berserk-style power boosts (given to Salamander after Secret of Mana), a weapon enchantment that steals health points from opponents, health gauge modifiers, and an infamous Random Magic spell which has surprising and often unpredictable effects. In Children of Mana, Luna can manipulate energy and atomic forces when summoned.
However, in and only in Legend of Mana, Luna was replaced by Aura, the Gold Elemental. While Aura is golden like her predecessor and retains a slightly similar female face, the most striking differences are her golden spiky crown and her unusual two-toed body. Aura's powers, most of which are named along the lines of gold and platinum, are in true opposition to Dryad's as in the Eastern Elements of Metal and Wood; however, they should not be considered as being of "death", the opposite of "life", but more "anti-life" or "inorganic". Even with the radical shift from Luna in name, Aura's spell animations contain stars, orbits, and other sorts of cosmic suggestions that are more akin to her celestial predecessor's powers.

Trials of ManaEdit
Luna is the seventh Mana Spirit that the heroes see in Trials of Mana. She is found at the Chartmoon Tower in the midst of the Moonlight Forest. When the heroes arrive at the tower, they find Goremand, who is evidently intent on releasing the energy of the Moon Mana Stone. They are about to fight him when the beastman Ludgar arrives and tells Goremand to go on ahead while he holds off the heroes. Once Ludgar is defeated, Luna appears. Kevin asks her if she can help Ludgar, so she revives him as an infant. Luna then joins the heroes on their quest to obtain the Sword of Mana.
In the world of Fa'Diel, Aura is regarded as the Spirit of Gold, and is said to be the master of all her sibling elements.
- "Let's go for it."
Like her fellow spirits, Luna can accompany the player character on their treks through Fa'Diel's myriad dungeons. Her attack and support spells, respectively, are as follows:
- Moonbeams: Rays of light emanate diagonally from the spirit
- Lunar Radiance: Grandually restores an ally's HP
In Dawn of Mana, Luna's personality is sleepy in all encounters with her, and her elemental powers can confuse enemies.
Luna (LOO-nuh) is the Latin word for Moon. In modern Latin languages, e.g. Spanish or Italian, the same word is used today. In these languages, the first day of the week (Monday) is Lunes (Sp.), Lunedi (It.), Lundi (Fr.), where the suffix "-di" means "day". In fact, Monday is named after Mona, the Anglo-Saxon goddess of the Moon.
