|— Luna to John Murphy [src]|
In Season Four, Luna traveled to Arkadia with some of her people when they became ill from radiation poisoning. Luna was the only one that survives due to being a Nightblood. Realizing that Nightblood could save everyone from the death wave, Sky People try to figure out how to turn people into Nightbloods. Luna traveled with Abby's team to Becca's Island where they tried to reverse engineer her blood. Unfortunately, after the death of all her clan, she was consumed by darkness and promised that if she won the final conclave, humanity will perish. She was killed by Octavia Blake during the final conclave.
Early Life Edit
Luna was born on Earth. Both she and her brother were Nightbloods and, as such, were sent to Polis to be trained in combat and leadership. They were part of the same group of nine novitiates as Lexa. When the Commander died, the nine novitiates partook in the Conclave. In the first round, Luna was matched up against her brother and she killed him. Luna was then matched up against Lexa for the second round, but instead of fighting, Luna ran away from Polis. She swore off fighting, instead choosing to live with her clan off-shore and avoid violence.
Throughout the Series Edit
In Stealing Fire, it is revealed that Luna is a Nightblood and was the only other survivor of Lexa's Conclave. She was one of the nine novitiates but fled during the Conclave. Titus called her "a coward and a traitor to the blood." However, in face of the decision between Ontari and Luna, Titus passes the Flame to Clarke so she can find Luna and make her the next commander.
In Join or Die, Octavia, Clarke, Bellamy and Jasper finally find Luna. They explain to her that Lincoln and Lexa are both dead and that Lincoln mentioned that she would be able to help them. Clarke shows her the Flame and asks her to become the new Commander but Luna refuses.
In Red Sky at Morning, Clarke continues to try to persuade Luna to take the Flame. When the Boat People who are to take Clarke, Octavia, Bellamy, and Jasper to shore arrive, it's revealed that her men have been chipped and are controlled by A.L.I.E. They torture Luna to take the chip, but she refuses. When they threaten Adria, a small child, Luna kills the chipped men. Afterward, Luna sends Clarke's group back to shore.
In The Four Horsemen, Luna and several of her people arrive at Arkadia affected with radiation poisoning. The others all succumb, including Adria who was given anti-radiation medicine, leaving Luna as the sole survivor. Clarke and Abby realize this is because Luna is a Nightblood and Abby asks to run some tests on her.
In Die All, Die Merrily, she participated in the Final Conclave where she is self-serving and does not plan on sharing the bunker when she wins. She kills at least two other champions, including Guara, before killing Roan and right afterward goes and searches for Octavia she is stabbed and killed by her.
Unlike most Grounders, Luna doesn't praise strength and fighting skills, neither does she support the typical Grounder motto ("Jus drein jus daun"). Luna leads the peaceful clan of Boat People, where they avoid the rules of war, and provide safe haven for orphans of war and people who are done fighting. Moreover, she does not wish to be Commander because that is connected to violence.
Despite her pacifist views, Luna is a strong fighter. She claims she would have won her conclave if she hadn't fled. She killed her brother during the conclave, which may have influenced her views and her decision to flee. When necessary, Luna can still fight and kill. When several chipped Boat People tried to take control of the Clan, she killed the chipped men to protect her people.
Physical Appearance Edit
Luna is tall with a tan complexion, brown eyes and long brown hair with blonde highlights at the tips.
At some point during Lincoln's travels, he met Luna. Lincoln knows that she helps those in need and encouraged the Delinquents to go to her. He also knows enough of her background to know that she does not want to draw attention to herself.
Luna was matched against Lexa during the second round of their Conclave, but she fled before the match. When Lexa became Commander, she refused to let Titus send men to hunt down and kill Luna.
Adria is one of the children that Luna takes care of at the rig. When the chipped men threaten Adria in "Red Sky at Morning", Luna kills all of them. In "The Four Horsemen", Luna holds Adria's hand in med bay. When it becomes clear that Adria is dying, Luna holds her and offers her words of comfort until Adria passes.
