- "You believed in me this whole time... Even though I look like... like this...? Thank you... Thank you so much..."
- — Luna to Sigma, while she is dying in Luna END
GTF-DM-L-016, also known as Luna, is a kind and intelligent young "woman" forced to play the Nonary Game: Ambidex Edition in Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward. She speaks softly, and always advocates for the most peaceful, optimistic solution. Empathetic to a fault, Luna never votes betray and always chooses to ally, unless her partner picks it for her.
Luna's physical appearance is based on Diana's. She has slightly droopy blue eyes and coral orange hair tied in a bun. Since she is a GAULEM, her hair and skin is made of Artificial Biological Tissue.
She wears a light purple, long-sleeved blouse under a white vest and a long, dark purple skirt with a white geometric design. The skirt is tied around her waist with a ribbon. She also has purple stockings and white slippers. Like the other players, she wears a bracelet on her left wrist.
Her necklace is a caged bluebird, which also functions as a music box that plays "Blue Bird Lamentation", a reference to the caged bluebird's loneliness and sorrow. Zero Sr. gave it to her as a gift, and Zero Sr. originally received it from Diana. The bluebird symbolizes happiness, while the cage symbolizes captivity. The necklace was inspired by Maurice Meaterlinck's play The Blue Bird. In Maeterlinck's original story, it doesn't end with Tytyl and Mytyl waking up. When Tytyl and Mytyl try to feed the bird, it leaves the cage and flies away. It reminds Luna of the following lessons: "Search for happiness wherever you can, because the search itself is what will make you truly happy." and "Happiness is closer than you think."
Luna is a pacifist and rarely gets angered - one of the few moments (and possibly only moment) in the game when Luna is angry is when Dio suggests the possibility of Quark being dead. Then Luna says, "How could you!? Why would you say such a horrible thing!?"
She completely trusts everyone and doesn't want anyone to die. As such, she always votes ally and will feel heartbroken and devastated when anyone chooses betray against her, on the verge of tears. Luna is a little introverted as evidenced by her shyness and timidness. She doesn't really have any friends or acquaintances, so she's lonely, and her loneliness hurts her. However, she is also capable of being gentle, caring, modest, and humble. Luna occasionally has a nervous stutter when she speaks and often has a hint of sorrow and sadness in her voice, as if she has a heavy burden on her shoulders.
Despite this, Luna can be very vengeful if Sigma chooses betray against her. The latter of the two game overs on her path involves her getting Quark to safety while leaving everyone else trapped in the warehouse forever (in the former game over, Tenmyouji's the one who gets Quark out instead, with Luna's whereabouts unknown).
Luna is not human, but rather an artificial intelligence which seems to possess emotions. Despite being a robot, she is afraid and scared of "death." Due to her status as a GAULEM, she follows the Three Laws of Robotics created by the science fiction author Isaac Asimov. She will not disobey a single order given by Akane Kurashiki or Zero Sr., even if she does not approve of their plan. Luna seems to have a complex towards herself for not being human - in her own words, she's nothing but "just a machine - a jumble of metal and plastic that pretends to be real."
It becomes apparent that Luna has a crush on Sigma Klim, as shown by her GAULEM ID password reversed (I LOVE KLIM), although it appears to be an unrequited love. This crush is also something Sigma never programmed - Luna developed it on her own. When they are both about to die in the bomb explosion, Luna smiles at him, likely to comfort him in his impending final moments.
Luna has a medical license and can operate medical machinery. She is installed with a medical database. The ADAM is one notable example. This is because her human counterpart, Diana, was a nurse.
As seen in the B. Garden, Luna loves nature and greenery because it makes her feel happy. She also tends to meet with Sigma there often because she says it is "perfect for a serious conversation".
Luna is a GAULEM, a robot developed by an American technology company called Hephaestus Systems. She is physically based on a woman named Diana who participated in the Mars Mission Test Site simulation in Nevada in December 2028. Diana survived the apocalypse, only to die in 2032 from a circulatory illness that she developed from being on the Moon. Luna is equipped with ABT and was programmed by Sigma Klim. Sigma created her sometime between 2032-2070 to assist him and Akane with their work, and for the AB Project to succeed. It took Sigma 25 years to build her. Sigma loved Luna less like a partner and more like a daughter.
Sometime in the 2050s or 2060s, Kyle Klim wanted a mother, so Sigma asked Luna to play the role of his mother. In actuality, Luna wasn't created because Kyle asked for her, but that's probably what young Kyle interpreted. Kyle did not accept her because she was a GAULEM. Kyle refused to answer Luna and locked himself in his room. Luna looked sad, but he figured a robot couldn't truly be sad and she was merely programmed to appear sad, and a robot's fake facade of artificial sadness meant nothing to him.
In 2074, Luna is instructed by Sigma and Akane to participate in the Nonary Game: Ambidex Edition. Should Akane be killed, Luna was to drag her body into her AB Room -- specifically, the sixth AB Room on the right. If Akane did not die, she was to participate normally, Luna also must not divulge any information about the game or Dio and play as if she was human. Finally, she was supposed to make sure that nothing interfered with the game's progress. Luna however was shocked that Akane would just let someone die so easily. Akane tells her that she has to follow her orders and do what she tells her and that Luna is programmed to follow her orders.
Virtue's Last Reward
Following Akane's orders, Luna placed Akane's body in her AB Room (the right-most AB Room). Luna's body is deactivated once she enters the AB Room. However, since Luna's brain is in the main computer of Rhizome 9, she still witnesses Dio kill Akane via security cameras (in the applicable timelines in which Akane dies only).
Soon after, she is reactivated and discovers she is a blue solo. She quickly escapes and is the second person out of the AB Rooms. Soon, all of the other players except for K and Clover end up in Warehouse A. After introducing herself, K jumps from the top of the leftmost AB Room with a sedated Clover. After K says that he cannot remember anything, Luna states that he has generalized amnesia. Moments later, Clover wakes up and learns what has happened and Zero III introduces the rules of the game to the other players. The Chromatic Doors open and Luna asks Sigma to pick a door.
When the players were solving their escape room, Zero III moved the AB Room using a crane from the very right to the very left AB Room. In doing so, this also revealed Dio's knife and would later expose it to Alice, as well as prevent suspicion of Luna.
In Sigma END's route, Luna talks to Sigma in the garden about her blue bird pendant and her past. Luna asks Sigma why he knows about the garden, since he never went there while looking for the garden, due to him going here in the timeline where he failed to save Alice. Luna asks if Sigma is a robot, due to his knowledge of the garden and the white liquid from Sigma's cut. She tells him about Artificial Biological Tissue and how it can make robots look like humans. She also tells him about the three laws of robotics. They realize the ADAM can be used to figure out if Sigma is human or robotic. They hear Phi trying to spy on them. She notices Bomb #1 on the tree. They then go to the infirmary and tells everyone about the bomb. Phi decides to search everyone for the bombs, but Sigma tells everyone Dio planted the bomb and Dio confirms it, setting the bombs on a detonator.
After initially searching with Phi in the Crew Quarters, he goes to the Infirmary, where he finds Luna. She offers to use the ADAM to scan Sigma, but he initially rejects it, wanting to look for Bomb #2 and the input device since knowing the truth of his body won't mean a thing if he's dead. However he allows her to scan him after she tells him that it won't take long. Sigma learns that he is human but has cyber-kinetic arms. Luna explains that they are supposed to work like real arms, so the tubocurarine inside the bracelets would still be a problem.
Just before the bombs explode, Luna is calm, which Sigma describes as machine like, and she tells him that she received very specific instructions and tells him a string of numbers and letters (her product ID) which will open the first gate. After this Luna tells Sigma that she hopes to see him again, and the bombs then explode, destroying the facility and everyone inside it.
Sigma chooses to go with Luna through the magenta door with Phi and the trio ends up in the Lounge. After escaping, Sigma, Luna, and Phi meet up with the others and find the second set of Chromatic Doors. Once back to Warehouse A, the body of Akane Kurashiki is discovered and Luna scans the body in a virtual autopsy. She states that Akane was stabbed with a knife. Dio immediately accuses K of killing her because the body was found in the AB Room that he was in. K denies it, saying that only Clover was inside the room with him and she was unconscious. Soon afterwards, the AB Game begins and Luna chooses to ally with Sigma and Phi. The results of the game show that Sigma also allied with her, bringing their BP to 5.
For the second round of the AB Game, Luna is a yellow solo. After Zero III finishes explaining the rules, Luna heads to the Crew Quarters with Tenmyouji and Clover. While there, she runs into Sigma, who asks what the purpose of the Nonary Game is. Luna makes up a fake theory that it might be a reality show. Her comment about Akane being killed for money angers Tenmyouji. Soon, the Chromatic Doors on Floor B open and the players must once again decide which doors to go through. Luna suggests going with either Sigma or Phi, since they allied with her in the first round. However, the other players cannot come to a decision until Quark starts murmuring about how they should all die. Tenmyouji takes Quark with him because he is a pair.
Luna then heads through the green door with Sigma and Alice. They find the GAULEM Bay behind the green door and meet a GAULEM known as G-OLM. He explains about the Chinese Room and almost tells Sigma and Alice that Luna is a GAULEM, but he is quickly terminated by Zero III.
Soon after, Dio opens the AB Room. Upon returning, she learns that Tenmyouji, Quark, and Clover had not returned yet. Luna starts to worry, but Alice finds something at the rightmost AB Room. Just as Sigma is going to ask her what it is, Tenmyouji and Clover return saying that Quark has vanished. The eight players split up to search for Quark. While searching, Luna learns that Alice has been stabbed and she goes to tell Sigma and Phi, Alice's fate. Once everyone is regrouped except for Quark, Phi accuses Dio of killing Alice because he found her. Dio then states that Clover might have committed the crime because she was the last person with Alice. Clover gets very upset about Alice's death and runs off, Tenmyouji pursuing her.
The second round of the AB Game begins and Dio suggests that Luna might betray Sigma. Luna states that she trusts Sigma and will ally. When K asks Phi if they are going to ally, she says that Dio might betray. She then locks Dio out of the AB Room and K goes to vote. Luna then votes ally, along with Sigma, bringing her BP up to 7. Sigma says that he will definitely choose ally in the third round. Luna, however, is upset about Alice's death, but Sigma says that Quark's BP is 9 at the end of the round. After Clover yells at Tenmyouji for betraying her, they both go their separate ways to search for Quark. After K and Phi speak about allying in the AB Game, Luna discovers she is a green solo. The four players agree to split up into two groups to find Quark. Sigma and Phi would work together and K and Luna would search together. Upon reaching Floor B, Luna and K split up, saying that it would be easier to find Quark that way. Luna soon finds Quark collapsed by the GAULEM Bay and places him inside a Treatment Pod in the Treatment Center, which was opened by Zero III. She removes his bracelet with the aluminum foil from the Crew Quarters. She soon takes Tenmyouji to see Quark and explains what happened to him, and gives him Quark's bracelet.
She then runs into Clover somewhere on Floor B. She takes Luna to the Crew Quarters and interrogates her about Alice's death. Luna tries to explain to Clover that Alice suicided because of Radical-6. Clover doesn't believe any of it, and takes out the injection gun filled with tubocurarine from the Infirmary, which both women fight over. During their fight, Luna accidentally gets injected with the gun by accident and Zero III deactivates her to maintain the illusion that Luna is human and not a robot. Clover runs off to get the AED to revive Luna, but Dio manages to tie her to the sink with Tenmyouji, who was at the wrong place at the wrong time. After the Chromatic Doors close, they are both killed by the penalty.
At this point, Luna is in the mainframe of the computer and witnesses Sigma and Phi in the Security room, looking through G-OLM's logs, and Dio and K killing each other in the Rec Room. After Sigma and Phi find Clover and Tenmyouji dead, Luna hacks into Zero III and reactivates her body. She quickly gets the Star Key from Dio and K's bodies and opens one of the AB Rooms. She then runs off quickly without running into Sigma and Phi. They then decide to search the room that Dio and K searched behind the White doors, which turns out to be the Director's Office. After a few jumps by Sigma, he is able to log into Zero's computer and access the GAULEM records. They both learn that Luna is a GAULEM, and most importantly, she was still active.
Phi suspects that Clover's final message of "016" is a clue to Luna's GAULEM ID number, but Sigma thinks otherwise. Later the third Ambidex Game starts, and Phi and Sigma turn around to see Luna on the outside, just as the doors close. Ironically they will have to play the AB Game against her. Phi still thinks that Luna killed Tenmyouji and Clover and tries to convince Sigma to betray her, as she will most likely betray them to keep them from leaving through the Number 9 door. In the end, Sigma picks ally and Luna did not vote, automatically allying, allowing Sigma and Phi to get 9 BP and escape the facility with an unconscious Quark.
After sending Phi through Door 9 with Quark and choosing to stay behind, saying he did not regret his decision, Sigma meets Luna in the B. Garden, remembering their talk in Sigma's ending. Luna confirms that she is indeed a GAULEM. She tells him about her orders leading to the start of the Ambidex Game. Upon completing her task, Luna was deactivated in her AB Room until the start of the Nonary Game. When asked about how Quark's bracelet being removed, despite that Quark had not died, she explains that she used tin foil for its electromagnetic blocking properties.
Luna then recounts the deaths of all the other players. Alice killed herself with the knife she found on in Warehouse A, which originally belonged to Dio. Dio hid it between Dio and Quark's original AB Room and Luna's original AB Room after he murdered the old woman. Zero III later moved Luna's AB Room while the other players were in the first set of Chromatic Doors. Later, she had entered Room 2 with Clover following close behind. Clover began to question Luna, but when Luna did not give Clover the answer she was looking for, Clover took out the injection gun with tubocurarine. Luna fought to take the gun away from Clover, however, the gun accidentally pierced Luna's neck, presumably killing her. After Luna falls on the ground, she tries to revive her but is unable to.
Clover fled in fear, believing to have killed her, but Luna, as a GAULEM, was merely deactivated to keep the illusion that she is human. Clover runs to the infirmary to get the AED. On the way towards the infirmary, she runs into Dio. After seeing Luna supposedly dead and taking the knife, he follows Clover to the infirmary. Once in the infirmary, Dio overpowered Clover and Tenmyouji and handcuffed them to a sink in the Infirmary, leading to their deaths. Before her death, Clover wrote "dio" on her left leg, which when transferred to her right leg, being read as "016". Finally when questioned by K, Dio gravely wounded K. However with the last of his strength, K killed Dio before succumbing to his wound.
Luna asks Sigma if he could hug her. Sigma awkwardly tries to but as he strokes her hair to reassure her, a bunch of her hair comes off into his hand. Luna's ABT begins to deteriorate due to the tubocurarine, causing the muscle fibers holding her ABT together to lose their binding. Luna asks Sigma if he's scared of her because she's a deteriorating robot falling apart, but Sigma tightly hugs her back, telling her that is why he trusts her. As her ABT skin rapidly falls off of her GAULEM skeleton, Luna thanks Sigma for always trusting her despite being a robot and believing in her in spite of all the situations where she appeared guilty.
Luna mentions that she broke the Three Laws of Robotics, stating that she allowed a human to die when she could have prevented it, not just once, but ultimately six times. She then states that she could have prevented everyone from dying if she disobeyed her orders. Luna tells Sigma that a deactivated GAULEM cannot reactivate itself unless Akane, Zero Sr., or Zero III order them to, however, Luna's digital mind hacked Zero III and reactivated herself while temporarily deactivating Zero III to allow herself to help Sigma and Phi as much as she could. She also mentions that by going rogue and hacking Zero III, her mind in the system will be terminated and that when Zero III reactivates himself she will be dead.
Despite Luna feeling that she deserves to die because she indirectly killed six people, Sigma reassures her that everyone's deaths were not her fault. He assures her that she only obeyed orders and that the true villain is Zero Sr., who set up the game, and says that it is painful to watch others die around you. Luna thanks him for being so kind to her and is happy to die in his embrace. She gives her final thanks and cryptically says "Goodbye... Doctor." Sigma is confused by that last word, but realizes that Luna has died. Alone in the B. Garden, Sigma cries in despair as he can do nothing about the dead GAULEM whose memories and consciousness are permanently deleted.
On Phi's route, Luna goes through the Yellow Door with Dio and Quark and explores the Infirmary with them.
In the first round of the Ambidex Game, both parties choose ally. As a result, all of them have 5 BP. In the second round, she is a yellow pair and her partner is Sigma. They go through the red Chromatic Door and explore the Control Room, where they find an antimatter reactor and a machine similar to a calculator.
In the second round of the Ambidex Game, she and Sigma get betrayed by Phi, who wanted revenge for Sigma's betrayal in another timeline. After Sigma manages to stop Phi from leaving, Luna discovers that she is a magenta pair with Clover. After Sigma and Phi manage to disarm the bombs, she and Clover carry Alice through one of the Chromatic Doors and explore the Director's Office.
Later, she escapes Rhizome 9 along with the other players, except for Dio. They return to the B. Garden in Rhizome 9. When Akane reveals the truth about the Nonary Game, she explains that it would be better if the others ask Luna about her role in the AB Project later, which she agrees to.
Another Time END
In Another Time END, Luna is seen in the Infirmary, looking after Dio by keeping him unconscious. She also speaks with ?, explaining to him what had happened while he was asleep. She also mentions that the antiviral treatment has been given to the other players to cure them of Radical-6. She then tells ? where Tenmyouji and Quark are.
Zero Time Dilemma
After solving Manufacturing, Sigma and Diana have a talk and Sigma mentions Luna.
Some time after Sigma and Akane arrived on the Moon, Sigma spent decades of his life living alone in Rhizome 9, without calls or email. Diana joined him and lived together for three years. They spent time researching genetics and studying various subjects like quantum mechanics, cosmology, biochemistry and artificial intelligence. As a result of the weak gravity of the shelter, an illness developed in Diana's circulatory system and she passed away soon after.
Due to his loneliness after her death, he recreated her appearance as best as he could, making her thought patterns match as close as possible. Luna was completed 25 years later and Sigma developed feelings for her, not as a lover but as a daughter.
D-Team Game Over 5 - Don't Press the Button
After Sigma has been stabbed by a hooded person, he mistook Diana for "Luna". He apologizes to her saying that his SHIFT's connection has been cut, and this will cause Kyle, Lagomorph and her not to be born in that world, subsequently leaving Alice and Clover stuck in the future.
Because of the events of the True Ending, it is unknown if Luna still exists, if her existence still exists in the Virtue's Last Reward history, or if her existence has been erased.
- "P-please don't fight..."
- "Maybe it's... for entertainment. So rich, powerful people can watch. They're probably off in an opulent theater, watching us struggle while they drink brandy and eat caviar..." (Luna theorizing the Nonary Game's purpose)
- "Y-Y-Your face is s-scaring me..." (when Sigma enthusiastically asks if she's single)
- "Yes, it seems like a perfectly normal table... Aaaah! I thought I saw a face in the table and I... I got scared..."
- "Okay, it's nice and lubricated now. All slick and slippery. Just slide it right in there, okay? Maybe now it'll open... Okay, now that you've got it all lubed up, you should stick it in!"
- "Is that true, Sigma? Is this shed really your house? You must be going through a rough time."
- "Sigma... why... Y-You promised... How could you...? Why won't you say something? At least give me an e-excuse! Say... say you wanted to protect everybody... or you slipped and hit the wrong button! Anything! I don't care if it's a lie! Just... just say something... I... I can't trust you anymore, can I...? I see. All right then. You did it so that you could get more points, right? I trusted you... Goodbye." (if Sigma betrays her)
- "How could you!? Why would you say such a horrible thing!?" (to Dio, when he suggests the possibility of Quark being dead)
- "Oh no... Oh no, oh no, oh no..." (after Sigma's bracelet activates)
- "Should you encounter a two-headed lion devouring the sun, remember: GTF-DM-L-016. With this key, the first gate shall be open to you."
- "I hope we can meet again someday. I'll be waiting... I'll be waiting..." (final words in Sigma END)
- "Being surrounded by nature makes me feel... happy."
- "Maybe it's because I'm so shy, but I don't really have any friends. Or even any acquaintances, really... So I've sort of always been... alone. It was really hard. I felt so lonely a lot of the time... And it... it hurt. It felt like I was just going to kind of... collapse from the inside out."
- "Sigma... Are you... are you a robot?"
- "A robot without the Three Laws is just a bunch of metal and plastic."
- "I just... Why do you trust me so much? I'm a machine. I'm PART of this place! How can you trust a machine?"
- "I'm a GAULEM. Just a... a machine... A jumble of metal and plastic that pretends to be real."
- "Thank you... thank you so much. I wish I could stay here forever... you feel so nice... but I think my time is up. I've done things I really shouldn't have."
- "I was scared... I... I was afraid to die..."
- "Yes... Very soon now I'll be gone..."
- "I watched six people die and did nothing. I deserve this."
- "Oh Sigma... thank you. I'm... I'm really glad I met you..."
- "I'm sorry... My time's up... At least I get to... die in your arms. Thank you, Sigma. And... goodbye... Doctor..."
- Due to the voice actresses being different, Luna and Diana have noticeably different voices. This makes sense because Sigma didn't want to recreate Diana exactly. Luna could be viewed as the child which Diana and Sigma were unable to have (in the timeline leading to Virtue's Last Reward, not the timeline leading to the birth of Phi and Delta). It is implied that at first, Sigma wanted a perfect recreation of Diana, but at some point, he realized this was impossible so he decided to give Luna an identity of her own.
|Blue Bird Lamentation|
|Luna's music box version.|
- Luna's Blue Bird Lamentation theme is remixed in Zero Time Dilemma.
- Luna's product ID is GTF-DM-L-016. The DM means "Diana Model".
- Luna's circle "◯" pose [maru - Japanese for "circle"] is to signify that someone is correct. For example, if someone says, "Oh, you're Luna?" Luna will make the maru sign with her arms and say, "Bingo! You're right! That's correct!"
- Luna's name comes from the Spanish and Italian word for "Moon", which is where the game is set, where Luna has presumably "lived", and where she was presumably created. Luna is also the Latin word for "moon", which corresponds to how her design was based upon a woman called Diana, named after the goddess of the Moon in Roman mythology.
- She can speak in a cockney accent, as seen in the GAULEM Bay.
- In the Control Room (Easy Mode), Luna claims that her father (probably Sigma) was a reactor technician, which makes sense considering Sigma became a scientist and created much of the things in Rhizome 9, especially the Control Room which has a reactor in it.
- In the GAULEM Bay (Easy Mode), Luna offers to use her skirt to clean oil. Alice asks her if it was something cheap and Luna says, "Yes. It was only 1,980 dollars." It is unknown if she is joking or not, although it could be plausible in a post-apocalyptic world where clothing (especially as elegant as Luna's) is considered extremely rare, in the same way Quark's root beer float was.
- Luna's skirt has geometric design which are very similar to the geometric designs on June's dress, which could serve as foreshadowing that the two are connected. Before 999, Akane was wealthy and would have the resources to design her own clothes. Because of this, it could be theorized that Akane designed her dress in 999, and later designed Luna's outfit. This could be why Luna's dress is apparently expensive - it may be custom made.
- In the GAULEM Bay, upon completing a puzzle, Luna says she's "fallen for [Sigma] all over again", implying she's fallen for Sigma once and already knows him.
- Luna, K, and Akane are the only characters to not use profanity in Virtue's Last Reward.
- Luna's favorite color is green, according to what she said in the Lounge. It makes her feel happy and calm.
- At the ending of Sigma END, Sigma is scared of Luna becomes she is so calm when they are about to die. He says she resembles a "machine with a human face", foreshadowing she is a robot.
- In a sense, Luna is considered Sigma's robot daughter and as such, she could be considered Phi's, Kyle's and Delta's robot sister, although Sigma asked Luna to play the role of Kyle's mother once (as opposed to a sisterly role), and Phi and Delta never really met Luna before.
