月の花 (Tsuki no Hana, Lunar Flower) is a fabled species of flower that is said to be the guiding light for those who seek the place known as, Paradise.

Appearance Edit

The Lunar Flower is based on the Saussurea obvallata, a type of Nightblooming Cereus.

The flower has thin white petals that turn to a brown-pink color when fully bloomed. The inner petals remain white and relatively full. The stamen protrudes from the center of the petals as a fuzzy yellow protrusion with thin white pieces at the very end. The stem and leaves of the flower are an emerald green. The flowers also appear to slightly glow during the night.

Naming Edit

The name "Lunar Flower" derives from it's bright-white petals; similar to the color of the moon. The flower also gets its name from it's nature of blooming when in moonlight.

Usage Edit

There are two known uses for the Lunar Flower:

  1. As a guide to the door of Paradise; both visually as well as olfactorily.
  2. An ingredient that is infused and utilized in various ways. This is done to harness its essence in order to find and/or enter Paradise.

History Edit

It is often referenced in the Book of the Moon as well as by some of the nobles and wolves. A Lunar Flower is said to be the key to both finding and opening the door to Paradise. However, the flower was unable to guide the wolves in its true-form.

The Lunar Flower was then harvested by the nobility to create the Hanabito. The flower was then regarded as rare, due to the wide-spread harvesting.

Plot Edit

A number of humanoids were made from the fusion of the flower and the lost art of alchemy. Only one Hanabito was considered a success, Cheza. She was then dubbed "the flower maiden". The imperfect versions were then destroyed or completely abandoned.

At the end of the anime, Lunar Flowers are seen growing around Kiba as he lies by Cheza's remaining flower-body.
