Lunes, Small Gods of Moonlight
Description: The commonest and most insignificant of Luna’s servants, these spirits manifest as rippling ribbons of blue and silver light that occasionally hint at other shapes. Descending to Creation upon the moonbeams, they play at guiding, inspiring and misleading mortals, whether at the direction of Heaven or their own inscrutable whims. They have little understanding of humanity; though they act without malice, their pranks can be deadly, and the wonders they reveal may prove too terrible for mortal souls to bear.
Lunes fly with swift and silent grace. Should the moon be overhead, they may rise up to the moon and then descend elsewhere to Creation, traveling thousands of miles in but a few minutes. They find the Sun’s brilliance uncomfortable, and so they generally return to the moon before it sets at night. Lunes converse primarily through music, evocative scents, or pantomime; they rarely, if ever, speak.
Sanctum: Lunes rarely use sanctums, for they dwell in Yu-Shan amidst the incomprehensible splendor of Luna’s estate. Occasionally, a Lune will craft a sanctum from the moon’s reflection on water or ice; such a sanctum generally resembles a crystal cavern filled with shifting light. Lunar sanctums can only be accessed when Luna is in the sky.
