It has been said, throughout time, that the moon represents the soul, the spirit, and provides a sense of maturity and a level head in individuals. It is also said if a person looks at the brightly shining full moon, they will feel serene and relaxed. The people of the moon generally take this into account quite well.
The Moon Kingdom is the place of hierarchy and diplomacy. It is steady, it is peaceful; it is home to all of its inhabitants. The most intriguing thing about the people--known as the Lunarians--is that they age much, much slower than the average human. This is because the crystals they wear around their next emits a glowing energy that cures any most deadly illness, heals the most severe of injuries, and slows their aging.
Its current ruler is Princess Alexandria. She reigns over the Moon Kingdom with a fair hand and the only person privileged to control the cycles of the moon itself. Next in the royal bloodline is her very young daughter, Princess Elsa. Elsa is a refined but curious girl who is being raised by Alexandria to follow in her footsteps to become the next ruler of the moon.
High above the castle where Princess Alexandria, Princess Elsa, and all of their loyal subjects reside, is a large crystal, emitting a purple-blue aura, with a misty ring encircling it. This ring is a mist that shapes into a number of faces from previous rulers of the Moon Kingdom. The Moon Crystal, as what the people call, is a sentient being, having developed a consciousness over time. Whenever there was a natural disaster, war, or any other cataclysm, it will absorb an individual of royal blood and merge with it. However, the process must be done with the five great Medallions of Unity: Fire, Water, Earth, Wind, and Spirit. Fire, Water, Earth and Wind start as the activators; only Spirit acts as the catalyst.
The Moon Kingdom, generally, is a peaceful state. It has been that way for as long as the moon’s dwellers can remember. However, all that changed drastically when one of the princess’s faithful servants said that an evil cult--the Dark Side of the Moon--is planning on capturing the Moon Crystal and the Five Medallions of Unity for their own gain to rule over the Moon Kingdom and possibly Earth. Unwilling to surrender to this cult, Princess Alexandria took the Crystal and the Medallions and fled to Earth with her daughter in efforts to hide each of the Medallions and the Moon Crystal separately, to thwart the attempts of the cult and to avoid capture. The people loyal to the princess also fled along as well.
Their remote location was Iceland.
The Icelandic natives, however, did not at first take kindly to the group’s sudden arrival as well as their “otherworldly presence.” However, both Princess Alexandria, Princess Elsa and the remaining Lunarians were indifferent towards the natives although posed no hostility towards them.
One day, an Icelandic native tribe leader approached Alexandria, asking of her and her race’s presence on this planet. The princess dreadfully explained that an evil cult is taking over her, her daughter and her people’s home, further stating that they’re after their source of their power and Lunarian life, the Moon Crystal, and the five Medallions of Unity, and request sanctuary there, to continue her duty in protecting the crystal and medallions from the wrong hands. So together, they made a pact of unity and the Icelandic natives fulfilled her request.
While in hiding, Princess Alexandria worked wearily to keep her hiding place in sync with the cycles of the moon. For instance, whenever there was a new moon, the Moon Crystal and the Medallions of Unity were kept hidden on moonless nights. Though trying not to show, it has become more difficult for her as she was not yet accustomed to Earth's atmosphere. With every bit of manipulation of the lunar cycle, the princess would feel weary, but nonetheless determined to prevent the Dark Side of the Moon from ever finding her and her people out.
Just a couple months later, Elsa went exploring on the Icelandic countryside, in spite of her mother’s warnings of increasing hostilities in the open. While walking, she spots a little boy--just about her age--wearing a white tunic with a curious-looking egg and wearing a medallion of some sorts with faded purple stones embedded on it. But what truly surprised her, was that the boy had silver-white hair and purple eyes--almost similar to the white-hair, blue-purple eye appearance she and the rest of her race has, and she believed him to be a long-lost Lunarian. The boy, confused, goes along with it, as Elsa takes him to show him to her mother.
Alexandria, surprised that this boy looked much like her race, but thinking that he was a long-lost Lunarian that somehow got to Earth, then decided to take him under wing, and raise him as her son and prince, as well as the brother to Elsa.
However, disaster soon struck as the Dark Side of the Moon caught up with Princess Alexandria, and destroyed everything in their path, ever determined to get the crystal and medallions and use it for themselves. Not willing to give up the crystal nor the medallions altogether, Alexandria told Elsa and her adoptive brother to escape. However, in the midst of doing so, the Moon Crystal, sensing grave danger, shoots a beam of a hypnotic pale purple-blue light onto her, and her crystal glows furiously. It slowly lifts Alexandria towards its form.
Elsa, who was holding her mother’s hand at the time, notices her grasp slipping away (as well as her bracelet). Eyes widened in panic, she called out to her. “Mór!”
The little princess reached up towards Alexandria, but to no avail and it had become in vain as she fell to her knees and cried out once again. “Mór!”
As she saw her mother disappear into the crystal, she felt hopelessness wash over her like water.
She then got up with a sudden jolt as her brother took her hand as he said to her in urgency and panic, “Gleyme henni! Virl fhur’kom út-oss fhví’fra núnoh!”
The adoptive siblings ran away from the light as the Moon Crystal shot out beams to form a barrier. They found a ditch within the rocks and hid there, shielding their eyes from the blinding light. Neither one of them knew exactly how long this ensued, but the light subsequently disappeared, and the cries of anguish and death have ceased. Both Elsa and her brother stayed within the ditch, listening closely of the cult. The cult leader--the Dark King as he was often called by his followers--said that the crystal has disappeared mysteriously, as is the princess and the supposed “prince.”
That was the last they have heard from the cult known as the Dark Side of the Moon, as Princess Elsa and her brother--Emil--whereabouts are unknown from this point forward. And the incident then became known as what the Icelandic natives and the Lunarians call “Alexandria’s Genesis.” As decades--then centuries--went by, the incident slowly faded from history, becoming an epic legend among the people, the Vikings, and the royal bodies of Scandinavia and the rest of the world.
Soon, history will be likely to repeat itself, with only the princess venturing in the country to find her “brother,” and protect him from the cult at any cost.
