Chosen of the Argent Madonna

the Lunar Exalted

These mighty savages are the champions of Luna. The Lunars were once the mates of the Solar Exalted, as well as their bodyguards and commanders of their armies. The Lunar Exalts either fled to the hinterlands of the Threshold after the Usurpation or died alongside their mates in futile battle. Today, most of these shapeshifting warriors live as barbarians, blaming the downfall of the Solars (and even their inability to save them) on civilization’s softening effects.

Arenth

A Lunar encountered on Mount Metagalapa and involved with the Cult of the Illuminated. Originally from the North, he generally prefers the form of a Polar Bear

Envenomed Thorn

Casteless Lunar – A young Lunar encountered on Mount Metagalapa among the Cult of the Illuminated. Preferred plant-related forms. Troubled, she did not trust the Cult, and felt they were trying to indoctrinate her and the others. She was found to be possessing a copy of the Broken Winged Crane, and attempted to hide within the mountain in order to complete some manner of summoning ritual for unknown purposes. Silver-Maned Mountain tried to stop her, but unintentionally killed her while trying to restrain her from attacking him. Suffering from a demon-related derangement, he then proceeded to consume her corpse.

Silver-Maned Mountain

Casteless Lunar – A fairly young Exalt, he doesn’t know much about what he has become. He feels the pull of the Wyld every time he changes shape, and fears what might happen if he should succumb to it’s effects. He also feels the strong bond his Exalted soul has to his Solar Mate, Previdicus.
