The Lunaculi (sing. Lunaculus) are a group of people native to one of each of the seven great lands of Qirsyllviar. They are the seven who, through existence alone, maintain balance between good and evil. They are easily identifiable by their unique heterochromatic eyes (crimson in the right and blue in the left) like the twin moons of Qirsyllviar. There always seven, no more no less, continuously reincarnated when one dies.

Origins

The only record of how the first seven came to be is recorded in the Mythos de Prota Septem, the holy text of Septifidelity. They left no record of their lifetimes otherwise. Nevertheless, the story of how they stopped evil from enslaving Qirsyllviar grew and was passed down for generations until it became legend.

The Legend of the Lunaculi

"In ancient times, when the great continents were still young, a great ancient evil named Voldrazar crept forth from the depths of the Underworld seeking to enslave all of Qirsyllviar. Many centuries of struggle between good and evil ensued with Voldrazar nearing victory. Then, seven young warriors, one from each of the great lands ravaged by the Evil Emperor, appeared as if out of nowhere. Together they battled Voldrazar for the fate of Qirsyllviar. Their strength, unbelievable. Their power, unstoppable. Voldrazar was defeated, and the seven warriors returned home. Since then, the seven warriors have been reborn again and again, and through existence alone have maintained the balance between good and evil. Always they are awaiting the call to gather again, should that balance ever shift." — An ancient text describing the origins of the lunaculi.

Powers & Abilities

Despite their role as balance keepers spread across the world, the powers of the lunaculi operate on a principle, "The Power of Seven." While they are powerful in their own right, alone they only have their own strength, but the more that are nearby the more powerful each becomes. And when all seven are together, they are unbeatable.

The lunaculi tend to spontaneously develop unique powers normally not seen amongst their own birth race. While sometimes hereditary based on the family lines they're born into, some are practically unheard of, or only appear once in many generations.

While the lunaculi tend to develop their own powers, all lunaculi share certain powers:

They have two unique abilities with their eyes. These are activated by closing both eyes, focusing on one eye, and then reopening that particular eye while keeping the other one closed. The crimson eye, called the "Devil's Eye," allows the lunaculus to see spirits of the dead, which are normally invisible unless they want to be seen. The blue eye, called "Angel's Eye," allows the lunaculus to see through anything, even invisibility enchantments.

Pragbhava Asurya Niyogin

Another ability of theirs, which is the most powerful and most fearsome, is the "Pragbhava Asurya Niyogin," also simply known as the "Niyogin." It is a combination of the power of all their past lives; their wisdom, knowledge, and power. When this happens, both their eyes glow bright green and they are capable of almost unimaginable feats. Like their normal powers, it is more powerful when more than one lunaculus is in proximity. A lunaculus will usually go into this state when they are in real danger, or when they go into a sufficient rage of fury. But they can also, if mastered, go into it at will. They can also go into this state more easily, mastered or not, during Harmonic Convergence once every four thousand years.

Reincarnation

Since the first seven, the lunaculi have been continuously reincarnated so that there are always seven at a time. When one dies a new one is born at least a few weeks after their predecessor's death. It should also be noted that the reincarnations are not race specific, meaning that any race, half-breed or not, can produce a lunaculus. Though reincarnations into a specific race are usually by chance alone, Alfheim is the exception; its lunaculus is reincarnated in a cycle.

Tallulah & Xyliana

Main article: Xyliana Lucifer

Tallulah and Xyliana are ancient immortal half-twin sisters that created the lunaculi in the first place. Their mother, Gaia, was human, but Tallulah's father was an angel, making her a nephilim, and Xyliana's father was demon, making her a cambion. While born opposites, both sisters shared the same belief: Voldrazar had to be stopped.

And so the sisters gathered seven individuals and gifted them with the power needed to stand up to Voldrazar, and lock him away.

Notes:
The list of known lunaculi in the Pre-Chronicles of Qirsyllviar section of the table are listed in chronological order, though are not necessarily immediately successive to each other, as there are actually hundreds more predating the current seven. That said, the immediate predecessors of the 46th Century Lunaculi are listed directly above them.

Symbols

Each lunaculus has their own symbol, which is occasionally marked where any of them were born or have done great deeds. The symbols were originally created by the first seven, and have since become their symbols of recognition and pride. Since the first seven, the lunaculi would sometimes wear their respective symbols somewhere on their person, but this is not a given for every lunaculus.

Etymology

  • Lunaculi, and Lunaculus, is a portmanteau that comes from the Latin words Luna (moon) and Oculi/Oculus (eyes/eye), which describes their heterochromatic eyes like the twin moons of Qirsyllviar.
    • lunaculus and lunaculi are pronounced "lū-noc-yū-lus" and "lū-noc-yū-lie" respectively.

Trivia

  • The first seven lunaculi are the central figures of Septifidelity, one of the major religions of Qirsyllviar.
  • The lunaculi were partially inspired by the Avatar from the Avatar Series.
    • The Pragbhava Asurya Niyogin, which was partially inspired by the Avatar State from the Avatar series, means "Past-Life Spiritual Empowerment" in Sanskrit.
  • Xiangrikui Gongchen was the alleged ancestor of the founders of several dynasties of Tianchao.
  • Chiyexi (翅夜蜥) was born in Tianchao during the Central, Western & Northern Dynasties period as the lunaculus of Marlakcor, yet died in Aquilonis. She was visiting the Gargate Empire at the time the stone sleep curse was cast on the Garvis clan, hence why, during the Garvis campaign of the GNAW, Sugako had memories of being in Garvis despite not being an Aquiline lunaculus and having never set foot in Garvis once in her life.
  • Fuso is considered a separate land all its own, and so, given the territory's position between the continents of Aquilonis and Marlakcor, either lunaculus can be born in Fuso.
    • That said, if both lunaculi are born at roughly the same time, it can be difficult to be determine which child is for which of the great lands. Normally, the child born in closest proximity to either continent is considered the lunaculus of that land, but this is often disputed.
  • While it's common for lunaculi to meet up and interact with each other at some point in their lives, a full gathering is a very rare occurrence; and some lunaculi go their entire lives without meeting another lunaculus.
    • Between the original defeat of Voldrazar and the gathering during the Great Northern Aquilonis War, all seven lunaculi have gathered together in one place a total of fifty-three times.
      • During the majority of times they gathered it was during a time of great peril, when the fate of a particular region, or even all of Qirsyllviar, hung in the balance.
    • Also, after a full gathering, it is common for the lunaculi to "scatter" again within days of the ultimate purpose of their gathering being fulfilled.
