Biography / BackgroundEdit

Luna is the wife of Duke Sylvester Torquill. She is abducted along with Rayseline Torquill by Simon Torquill, the Duke's twin brother, who hates his brother—he was being influenced by Oleander de Merelands. Sylvester sends his Knight Errant, Toby Daye to rescue them. Toby walks into a trap and is turned into a fish for fourteen years before she could rescue them. The two suffered greatly during their long abduction.

Later in the series, Luna mysteriously becomes ill, as does Lily. Their illnesses are attributed to poison. Rayseline points the finger at Toby to the Queen of the Mists.

Quotes Edit

     I stopped, raising my hands. "I won't hurt you. I'm a friend of Luna's. You know Luna, don't you? Of course you know Luna, all the roses know her . . ."
     The Rose Goblin stopped whining, watching me with wide gleaming eyes. Good. Some flower spirits were more closely tied to their origins than others, and rose goblins tend to cling to the plants that birth them. I meant what I said: I've never met a rose that didn't know luna Torquill. Being a legend to the flowers must be interesting. It certainly keeps her busy during pruning season. I took another step forward. "Are you Oday?" — Toby Daye [6]
