Who is Luna Garza?
Luna Garza is a public school teacher and shapeshifter who had a child with her hot-headed werewolf ex, Marcus Bozeman. Determined to keep her daughter Emma away from the violence of the pack, Luna hoped her little girl would exhibit shifter abilities instead of taking after her father’s side of the family.
The exotic beauty first appeared as a member of Sam Merlotte’s shifter support group, and the flirtation between them eventually grew into a romance. Their love has suffered more than a few setbacks due to Marcus’ jealous rages, and the fact that Sam’s brother, Tommy Mickens, slept with Luna while skinwalking as Sam. Yikes!
Luna almost lost Sam for good after Marcus was killed by Alcide, and Rikki Naylor brought Sam to the pack and almost tortured him to death. Shortly after, a group of vigilantes hunting “supes” killed all of Luna and Sam’s shifter friends, and Luna discovered Emma had transformed into a wolf cub during the full moon.
After being shot in another vigilante attack, Luna agreed to let Emma’s grandmother Martha Bozeman take her to the safety of the pack, but while Luna was recuperating, Russell Edgington took wolfcub Emma and gifted her to his new boyfriend, Steve Newlin, as a pet.
Luna had to skinwalk as Newlin to fool the other vampires, breaking into the Vampire Authority headquarters with Sam to steal Emma back. Still masquerading as Newlin, Luna then exposed his hypocrisy on live TV in order to warn the humans about the AVL’s true intentions. Luna, Sam, and Emma escaped just before “Billith” rose up … but that doesn’t mean they’re safe!
