On the outside Moon appears to be very serious, but on the inside she is rather kind-hearted. She disagreed with Ix regularly but was afraid to speak up. She is very focused and once she starts something is intent on finishing it. She is a hard worker and anything but lazy. She isn't always very talkative unless she has something to say and is frequently seen deep in thought. Notably, she is also selfless, not considering her own wellbeing in crucial decisions.
For the majority of her life she has been a soldier, so it's really all she knows. She doesn't have any real hobbies outside of working, and tends to feel rather lost when there isn't a mission going on. She's also not the best at small talk or casual conversations, useually trying to find ways to busy herself instead of just talking. This can make her seem 'shy', but that's really not the case.
In a fight, she has the determined, do or die attitude of a soldier, and is unlikely to deviate from established plans. That's not to say that she won't think on her own when the situation demands it. She has a strong sense of morals, which has in the past conflicted with her desire to follow orders. Also, she cares about peoples, though there are few people who are truly close to her. Those that are, however, she puts at a higher priority than missions or herself.
Moon is a yellow echidna with pale yellow stripes down her many dreadlocks. When not held up with her headband they tend to fall all around her face. She also has a pale yellow muzzle. Her front-most left dreadlock always falls forward into her face. She has green eyes. There are some signs of aging under her eyes though in the form of light wrinkles. Her figure is generally slim and in good shape from all of her activity, though she has slightly wide hips.
Moon wears typical Nocturnus soldier armour for her rank. The difference is that parts of her's glow neon green instead of blue. The suit is tight and black, with the appearance of being layered in a way. She wears matching boots with white on the top. Her gloves have green on them as well as having power cuffs that allow her to do energy blasts and have her retractable leech blade. Her dreadlocks are pulled back with a black headband. She wears a helmet like the rest of the Triarius Nocturnes.
Moon stands strong, straight, and confident. She holds her hands behind her back alot and has posture that comes from her training as a soldier. This posture can change in an instant to a battle ready stance whenever she senses trouble. Despite the strict posture though, her facial expression betray a certain softness at times, showing concern among other things.
Moon's voice is mature sounding with a medium pitch. Although most of the time it is smooth, she sometimes has a few cracks in it. Her voice is also relatively quiet.
Moon has several special attacks and abilities that are derived from her Nocturnus technology, including energy blasts, leeching attacks, and regenerative capabilities. She has her leech blades which come right out of her suit around her wrists. Not only do they provide damage and cutting attacks, but they can actually leech energy right from her opponents when struck and use it to regenerate herself. The suit can also regenerate on its own though not quite as effectively as with the leech technique. Her gloves can generate dual energy blasts which can then be fired at her opponent from a long range.
In addition to the abilites granted by her suit, she is also well trained physically. She is agile and can hold her own in melee combat. She also has the advantage of experience. Stealth is one of her skills. Another is her acute sense of balance.
She's quick on her feet and rather adept at dodging incoming attacks. Her fighting style isn't flashy at all though, but could be described as strictly business. She does what she needs to do to take down her opponent without anything that could be described as 'showing off'. Often this consists of a simple attack with her leech blade.
She has become a better fighter with age, but her endurance isn't all that great compared to a younger fighter. After awhile of strenous activity she is more likely to get tired. It should also be noted that without her suit or other technology, her stamina is greatly decreased. The suit's regenerative capabilities are something she has come to rely on. Also, she's used to relying on technology for attacks as well, so taking it away leaves her a bit out of her element.
With regards to elements she is resistant to wind and water but weak to fire, ice, lightning, and earth.

Moon was raised on the Nocturnus colony back when it was still a part of Mobius. Her father was a scientist and her mother was a Vet. Scout in the Nocturnus army. When they went to war with the Knuckles Clan her mother went off to fight. She died when Moon was a teenager and Moon became a soldier to be like her. Her mother's death and the war in general didn't give her a very high opinion of the Knuckles Clan, and it only fueled her determination in her training to make up for what had been done. She has realized that things are different now, and harbors no hard feelings towards the clan's descendants.
With the Nocturnus
Moon was a long time soldier of the Nocturnus, but after they were exiled to the Twilight Cage she began noticing Ix's "over ambitiousness". She disagreed with his methods, but like many of the Nocturnus, was afraid to speak up. That was until her niece, Shade, resisted him by allying herself with Sonic and friends. Moon retained her position in the army, but after realizing that Ix was indeed insane, began to play as more of a saboteur. She would do little things that she could without being noticed such as interrupting supplies. A more prominent of her rebellious acts was visiting the exiled Nestor, whom she would often speak with about the situation of the Nocturnus.
After Defeat of the Nocturnus
After the Nocturnus were defeated by Sonic and friends, Moon escaped the Twilight Cage. Upon first arriving on modern Mobius, she was completely lost. She was drawn to areas with echidnas, though there were a lot less around than she expected. Eventually though, she made her way up to Angel Island and was detected by Lien-DOS when she was looking around. With nowhere else to go she ended up living with Dimitri, Lien-DOS, and Luger in Haven. With them she began working on information gathering missions trying to find some way to rescue the rest of her people from the Twilight Cage. She made many new friends and helped them to fight evil. In addition to all this, she began experiencing what life is like now outside the Cage with these friends.
In recent events, Thrash the Tasmanian Devil exacted his long awaited revenge against the echidnas for experimenting on his species generations ago. He did so by throwing virtually all of the remaining echidnas through a warp ring to an undisclosed location, imprisoning them there. Luger, Moon, and Dimitri were at Haven during all of this and were not affected. Consequently they are now some of the only surviving echidnas besides Knuckles and Finitevus. Rather than simply focusing on the Nocturnus, Moon and Dimitri have combined their goals with the intent to find and restore all of the echidna people as a whole.
