Lunaria Harvestar (also known as Moonwort or Moon), was the mother of Thorn, the previous queen of Atheia, and the final queen of the Old Kingdom. She is the only child of Rose Harvestar.


Lunaria was born on the battlefield. Lunaria was handed the position of Queen while her mother fought aganist the Rat Creatures during the Great War. While her mother was known for her military skills, Lunaria was more respected for spreading knowledge and being a patron of the arts. She eventually took a husband and gave birth to a daughter named Thorn, who the dragons believed would be a powerful Veni-Yan Cari. Lunaria made her aunt Briar a nursemaid to her infant daughter, not knowing that she was a servant to the Locust.


During the Nights of Lightning, Lunaria, her husband, and Briar were forced to evacuate Atheia after Briar let the Rat Creatures inside. Briar led them to Rose at Deren Gard, where she subsequently betrayed them. Rose took Thorn to the dragons at the Dragons Stair so they would be safe while Lunaria and her husband defended themselves. They were able to kill Briar for her treachery, but they were eventually overwhelmed. Lunaria was torn apart and eaten alive by Kingdok. Rose buried her remains when she returned.
