The guileless princess gazes down at the white-veined blue marble called Earth. Adorned in swirling silver, pearly white, with long pleated trains. Bedecked with the crescent moons and crown jewels of her kingdom. One as blessed as she with youth and beauty should be exuberantly happy. And yet, and yet… She aches for her prince, held away from her at a tantalizing distance. She longs to fulfill the promise of their secret love, keeping mementos of their romance at all times near her.

Mani and Sol are the Norse personifications of the moon and sun, respectively. They are the son and daughter of Mundilfari. Opposite of other mythologies, the Norsemen represented the moon as masculine and the sun as feminine.
In the Eddas they are described as journeying over the world each day in order to count the years for mankind, and they are pursued by wolves. One tale describes them as the children of a man, Mundilfari, who thought his children so fair he named them after the sun and the moon, and as punishment for this perceived arrogance the children were sent to the heavens to serve the sun and moon. It is also said that during Ragnarok Mani will be consumed by one of the wolves that chases them.
