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 abilities[]

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 extremely 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. Many of them appear to associate with purported effects of the moon onto the world, from affecting circadian rhythms and the more material aspects of lifeforms such as body chemistry and even to control over water and fluids that is used as "life force", being associated with tales and concepts of immortality, and to the idea of celestial forces that demand a "higher understanding" to grasp. While associated with the celestial heavens and outer space, the Moon element and its magic have also been associated with the undead and the night in the series, indicative of "mad science gone wrong" and perversion of the natural order by inorganic and unnatural means.

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 are mostly named after gold and platinum. 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.

Etymology[]

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.

Her appearance as a fairy likely stems from European and Irish folklore in how fairies tend to be found greater during nights of the full moon singing and dancing, while her teardrop shaped loop around her is evocative of aureoles worn by the Greek goddess of the moon, Diana, and tenne worn by East Asian moon goddesses such as Chang'e, and her blonde hair and sleepy appearance with a golden crystal ball is evocative of Kaguya from Japanese legend, who was said to have come from the moon as a celestial maiden.
