Current candidates

The Lands of the Moon are currently in a great election after King David Moon III died of mantis swelling.These are the current candidates.

Princess Diana Moon

Princess Diana Moon is the youngest daughter of King David III. She appears as a shy young girl with a kind heart and is currently in the lead in the election for the next monarch. Behind the scenes she is very close with the Hanzo family who control great spy networks and are one of the richest families in Brineina. She has long blonde hair and emerald green eyes and is considered very beautiful. Diana is known to always carry a firearm with her, which saved her life during one assassination attempt. A woman with a knife dressed as a servant followed her into the bathroom where she attacked. Diana managed to pull out her firearm and shoot the woman in the heart. Diana herself carries a scar along her left breast as a reminder of this attempt.

Prince Marcurius Moon

Prince Marcurius Moon, also known as Magic Mark, is the third and youngest son of King David III. He is the younger brother of Diana and shares the same mother. He is a student of ancient magic and can often be found studying old dusty tomes. He is a handsome young man with shoulder-length blonde hair and dark green eyes. He often wears the long robes of a mage with the hood up. He is a candidate for the next monarch and his biggest supporters are the Cash family. To show his appreciation for their support, he has taken to wearing a scarf in the Cash family colors, which are neon pink and light pink. This has earned him a new nickname as the Pink Prince.

Prince Donnel Moon

Prince Donnel Moon is the second son of King David III and the half-brother of Diana. He is married to Lady Saxia Donk, the daughter of Lord Alexander Donk, which gives him full support from the Donk family. He is still considered an undesirable candidate for kingship however as he is a weak-willed and easily manipulated man. He is a dirty blonde with murky brown eyes and a big broad nose. What Prince Donnel lacks in brains, he makes up for in brawn, as he is one of the best warriors in the Lands of the Moon.

Prince Benjamin Moon

Prince Benjamin is the oldest child of King David III and described as an evil and cruel man. He is the favored candidate of the Dent family, who are known as cannibals and sadists. Benjamin himself claims to have never participated in the morbid practices of the Dent family, but rumors have spread that say the opposite. Benjamin is the primary suspect behind the assassination attempts of Diana and Morthy. He is a dirty blonde with dark brown eyes and three golden teeth. He is the brother of Donnel and half-brother of Marcurius and Diana. While he is betrothed to Lady Emma Dent, his real love is rumored to be her father Lord Danny Dent. The two have been spotted together often and some claim to have even seen them kiss.

Princess Francesca Moon

Princess Francesca Moon née Brown is the second wife of King David III, mother of Diana and Marcurius, Queen-consort of the Lands of the Moon and sister of Lord Honey. Though not born into house Moon, her status as the Queen-consort allows her to be a candidate for next monarch. She is supported by her brother Lord Honey and many of the Capital’s knights. She is a natural redhead with emerald green eyes. She often carries her hair in an elaborate braid that is long enough to be wrapped around her waist.

Prince Elmond Moon

Prince Elmond Moon is the son of Donnel and Lady Saxia. He has short black hair, brown eyes and his mother’s light brown skin. During a conflict between the Donk family and the Hort family, the young Elmond was taken at the age of four. Elmond is currently fifteen and has been forcibly married to Lady Cinderella Hort who is eight years older than him. He is completely loyal to his wife and it might not be surprising that Lady Cinderella is the one that supports Prince Elmond as a candidate for next monarch.

Princess Lea Moon

Princess Lea Moon is a legitimized bastard. King David III legitimized Lea as a slight to his second wife Francesca, who reacted by taking Lea and sending her off to the Alchemist’s Guild. Lea studied with the alchemists of the Guild for her entire life, being kept from the public until the king died. The Alchemists came forward with Lea as a possible candidate for the next monarch. She usually wears the signature alchemist’s outfit consisting of red robes with a golden belt and bare feet. Her hair is blonde and cut into a bob. She has red eyes which could be natural, but also could be a side effect of her experiments.

Prince Morthy Moon

Prince Morthy Moon is the older brother of King David III and came in second place during the last elections. He once again became a candidate for next monarch, and like last time he presents himself as a patron of the merchant class. The merchant class counts many special citizens among their ranks which gives Morthy a big early lead in the election. He is an older man with brown eyes and nearly bald. His last bits of previously golden blonde hair have started to grey.
