a story of
A cyborg, a criminal, a half-human half-wolf, and an ordinary girl
Woman vs. Society
"14 cities attacked worldwide"
"This was her fault."
"For months she had been cloaking those Lunar ships from Earthen detection, doing Mistress Sybil's bidding without question, like the well trained lackey she was."
"Emperor Kaito of the Eastern Commonwealth had put an end to the attacks by agreeing to marry Lunar Queen Levana."
"Kindness, like a boomerang, always returns" -UNKOWN
Cinder is a human-cyborg, her body was so badly burned in the fire Levana set to kill her when she was three, she had to become a cyborg. Even though she is shunned by most of society, that won't stop her. When she recently found out that she is the missing princess Selena, everyone is putting pressure on her to save the world. She cares deeply for Prince Kai and he for her. Even though Kai knows she's a cyborg and she lied to him about it, he still wants to protect her, even if his forced fiance wants her dead. Cinder is dependable, trusting, and brave.
Cress is a shell, that means she is immune to the spells Luna citizens put on people. The spells make people seem better and more beautiful than they really are. Queen Levana put Cress on a satellite so she could become a hacker and cloak the Lunar warships. If the warships are cloaked, Earth won't be able to detect the ships and Luna could attack at anytime. Cress has long blonde hair that she trips over. She is timid, afraid, and sometimes shy.
Or Kai for short, he is in love with Cinder even though she is a cyborg. He is the Emperor of Common Wealth in Asia, after his father died from the plague that ravages the world. He was supposed to marry Queen Levana to unite Luna and Earth once and for all but he gets kidnapped by Cinder before that happens. Kai is mature, hopeful, and confused about his feelings for CInder.
